Barceló Castillo Beach Resort

With a beachside location and a fantastic pool scene, this place puts relaxation at the top of the agenda. It counts the plush Fuerteventura Thalasso Spa as its next-door neighbour, too.

This place is set right next to Caleta de Fuste Beach, so you’re just seconds from the sand. What’s more, this part of the coast is a world-class diving spot. The dive school next door provides its own instructors, so you can explore the coral reefs whenever you fancy.

In terms of things to do, the pools are centre of attention. There are three to choose from, each with a wide sun terrace dotted with loungers and palms. Trimmings come in the form of a children’s pool, an open-air hot tub and two snack bars. Next to the complex, meanwhile, there’s a sleek Thalasso Centre – the Fuerteventura Thalasso Spa. It specialises in thalassotherapy and counts seaweed wraps, hydro-massages and salt scrubs among its treatments.

Back at base, cube-style apartments are tucked into leafy grounds, so everything feels pretty private. And, they all come with kitchenettes, living rooms and terraces.

Barcelo Castillo Beach Resort

stayed in a superior bungalow with one bedroom and a pull out bed in the living room. Good, spacious and clean. Nice veranda. Accommodation cleaned every day, hotel modern and spotlessly clean, friendly staff, excellent service and great position near the beach etc. 4 year old son loved kids club and kids disco. Car hire easy and cheap. Would return. More

Very good

First the positives. The Hotel was clean and linen changed daily. The food was very good and varied,always managed to get a sun lounger, pool view over the sea was nice, loved playing volleyball and french boule and archery, Negatives No music or much interaction around the pool, entertainment at night was not my cup of tea, if you do not get there early you have no chance of seeing or hearing what is going on, unlike other places this was cramped. We decided for the first time to go out the Hotel for some entertainment and we a really good Scottish Karaokee bar. On the negative outside we were not made very welcome by ex-pats who frequent the starlight bar in town, you make your own choice on this one, but i would not go there again.More

Great escape, good holiday!

We went here for the second part of our honeymoon (first part was in Lanzarote). We booked directly on the hotel site and we went for premium. When we arrived at the hotel we were welcomed to a different desk, reserved for the premium clients, and we were offered with champagne glasses with fresh and cold orange juice - which was a blessing considering we were coming from Lanzarote, via ferry and car, and it was very hot outside! All papers were prepared so the check-in lasted max 5-10 min - but it lasted more for the staff to explain to us the map of the hotel and its amenities. We were booked in the bungalows (ground floor), next to the beach, having a huge room with a kitchenette, with private garden and a private Jacuzzi on the outside terrace, along with two sun beds, which were wonderful to relax in the afternoon. At arrival, we received from the hotel a plate with fresh iced fruits and an iced bottle of champagne – great first impression! Then, each evening they were coming into the room and prepare the bed, put on the sun-shades on the windows and they left us chocolate bars – for sweet good night sleep  We stayed there under demi-pension regime, which I definite recommend if you go Premium – this way we had a separate “high-cuisine” small restaurant (which was very elegant!), for both breakfast and dinner, and it had a lovely terrace with a view over the bay. Here they offered live cooking, specialties, nice offer of wines and very good service! In the normal restaurant, what we saw (we went there once for breakfast), it was extremely crowded (although the restaurant was huge) and messy, and the way the food was placed didn’t make sense – you lost a lot of time to get your way around. The pool, again for the premium clients was separate, in another part of the hotel, with elegant sun beds and a very nice view. Of course this pool is not that big, but is great for a refresh bath, plus it is very quiet in this area  DISLIKES: 1. In our second day we have received already the invoice, left under the door. We went to the reception and told them that we will pay at check-out, together with all the extras we eat/bought from the hotel during the stay. They apologized, but same thing happened daily until departure – each day we received a notice that we have to pay … which of course I didn’t pay until check-out. This is a big negative side of the service, from my part – it is frustrating for the customers!!! 2. In our check-out day, since early morning (we just got up), staff was outside our door, waiting for us to check-out, considering that check-out was at mid-day! We went for breakfast initially, and someone in the interior yard stopped us and asked us when do we check-out, we said at noon and continued om our way. When we returned, again, another person, same question. Same thing happened when we left again the room, and then, when we were back in the room (actually to get the bags), staff was outside the room making horrible noises and asking around when room (our room no) will check-out! This NEVER happened to us before, and again it is extremely rude from their part to do this!!! 3. Pay attention if you DON’T go premium: you have to leave money as guarantee for the beach towels; you have to ask at the reception for shampoo, soap etc. else, they will not refresh it. For premium they are included. I found it again an uncommon practice … and I found out because in the first day they didn't refresh us the toiletries and I went to the reception to ask, and the lady told me I have to specifically ask (she was quite rude initially), then she saw my premium customer bracelet and her stance changed, and apologized and told me that for us they should have done it by default. My advise, if you don’t go premium, pay more attention to services and to what is included and not :) Else, we have enjoyed our stay!More

Barcelo Beach Club Calete de Fuste

A total of 8 visits over 4 years speaks for itself. Although not perfect, problems are resolved via persistance like bed arrangements or alternative room location. Kitchen equipment for self catering is basic but having to buy one or two items cannot detract from other amenities and location of this resort especially being 10mins from the airport.More

Lovely

Family of 5 came for week break in April. Didn't book private transfer and glad we didn't as it only cost 12 euros for the 10 minute taxi ride from the airport. Check in was excellent and receptionist could not have been more helpful. We were directed to our bungalow in block 3 and it was a good 10 minute walk. We asked for a room a little closer to restaurant and reception and this was handled without any fuss. Bungalow we had was in block 2 and was just a short walk to the beach, pools etc. Grounds were immaculate. We were all inclusive and found the selection of food and drinks really good. Buffet restaurant was chaotic at times and on a couple of occasions noticed people having to wait for seats. Animation team were good and always friendly with activities during the day. Professional acts on 4 of the 7 nights were good and the in house animation team tried hard on other 3 nights but weren't really great. Only real niggle was that only one bar to get all inclusive in evening and this was the theatre bar with plastic seats and stools for tables. Other than this would highly recommend the hotel and its wonderful staff.More
