Blue Bay Palace, Corralejo

The Blue Bay Palace Hotel in Corralejo has just gone All-Inclusive. Travellers may want to check with the hotel how this affects their holiday booking.

This may appear to be a positive move for hotel guests as they will have the option of spending their complete holiday within the hotel complex, but this will have a negative impact on the already struggling businesses close to the hotel as more tourists will NOT be venturing out to restaurants and bars.
