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 3 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 2 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.

Best holiday ever

Beautiful resort...very clean and the food and drink were amazing. Plenty to choose from and the snacks were good when you missed breakfast. Staff very friendly and great entertainment at night. Kids didn't go to kids club so can't comment on it but heard it was good. More

Fantastic family holiday !!!!

Finally finding the time to write my review for Castillo Beach since our visit in August 2014. We stayed there for three weeks in a sea view 2 bedrooms bungalow, and as a family of 4 (2 adults and 2 children aged 2 & 4) it was perfect!!! We had 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, a kitchen, lounge diner and 2 patios ( we think we had 2 bungalows made into 1). Yes the resort is spread out but that we loved that, a nice stroll to breakfast then onto the beach or pool. The food was great! Always salad always fresh fish & meat always something for the kiddies. As we were there for 3 weeks and all inclusive we were a little concerned about our waistline however we needn't have worried we ate so well and so healthily!!! This isn't to say they didn't have yummy naughty choices as well because they did. Lots of fruit and desserts to choose also. Everything in the main buffet restaurant was self service including the wine water and beer, personally I like to be waited on a bit more however my husband loved the fact you don't have to wait for your order to be taken and then served. Onto service, having worked in thick end of hospitality for over 20 years I can honestly say that the staff here worked tirelessly to ensure our stay was perfect, from reception, to the cleaners,to the chefs to the waiting staff and a very special mention to Lina Coelho who was just amazing!!! Our two boys had just turned 2 & 4 and they were spoilt by her, she certainly made our stay one to remember and would be one of the many reasons to return to Castillo Beach. I think we had everything we needed on site but that wouldn't have mattered as the town was a short walk away and the capital a short taxi/bus journey away. They airport was literally 15 minutes away so no transfer which with little ones is a blessing!!! The pools were busy but then it was august and there was the who can put there towel down earliest to get a sun bed competition but then isn't that always the case? We spent our time between the main kiddies pool which is the one the furthest away from the reception. The pool snack bar was great however I can't really comment on the food there as we went to the main restaurant for our lunch. They had washing machines and tumble dyers should you need it, however these came with a charge... I can't comment on the kids club as my two didn't go. The mini disco in the evening had just moved into a purpose built entertainments centre which was first class , and looked out over the marina. However on a safety note there was no barrier between my youngest and the rocks so I was on edge when I spent time in this area in case he had a 2 year old moment!!! Wishing they'd put up glass barriers like in other areas to give us mummies a little bit more peace of mind having said that that is my only quibble..... Overall we had a fantastic holiday and having stayed at a Thomson sensatori the previous year we were not disappointed if anything we thought the food was better. The resort is having further developments which can only improve this resort further.... Looking forward to our next visit!!!More

The little things spoiled it

Not a brilliant start but was more Thomson's fault than the hotels. Paid an upgrade from a twin bedded room to a double room only to find this hotel doesn't actually have double beds and will push the beds together and make them up as a double for nothing! We were in the 1000 block which is the bungalow block on the main road. It was big enough and clean but the road noise was loud and the cleaners trolleys bumping along the pavements woke us early every morning. The lighting in the bedroom however was horrendous. Two dim bedside lamps was all we had and had to use the torch on my phone to search through the wardrobe to change in the evening. Thought 3 euro a day plus a 7 euro deposit for a safe quite steep. No free WiFi which for a 4 star hotel in this day and age seems off although we don't go to use our computers it would have been nice to skype the family. Never had to pay to change beach towels before but they did dry overnight quite well and we managed to make them last. The beach looks loads better on the website than in reality, the sea was really rocky and slimy so we didn't use it. The food was really good for a buffet, mostly hot, plenty of choice and well cooked. Yes there were tiles off the swimming pool but nothing too unsightly and it was salt water but lovely and refreshing all the same (don't tend to go under the water anyway). Went for a trip on the catamaran from the harbour and had an amazing trip. Dolphins came and played round the boat and the crew were so nice and looked after us wonderfully, making sure we always had drinks (free). We hired a car for 3 days and saw quite a lot of the island and although we had a lovely time and would go back to Fuerteventura we found more beautiful places than Caleta de Fuste.More

Had an amazing week, will definitely return!

Barceló Castillo is a fab resort, something for everyone, a 10 minute taxi ride from the airport costing €13. We were upgraded to a beautiful apartment, very modern, total luxury. The staff were great, nothing was too much trouble & they had great attention to detail. There are beautiful gardens throughout the resort. There are a number of bars in the resort serving snacks, pizza, Panini’s etc. & ice cream of every variety, There’s a more formal restaurant where the food was fab, Jorge our waiter took very good care of us. Álvaro was manning one of the bars and he was very friendly and helpful also. There are lovely seating areas around the bottom of the resort overlooking the yacht club, white sofas, beautiful large white lamps dotted around, very pretty. There were a number of pools with lots of sun beds, but we went to the beach every day, it was heaven. Our apartment was about 50 yards from the beach. There’s a supermarket behind reception, one of the shop assistants a small lady was really helpful & friendly, the stuff in the shop wasn't overpriced! We went SC, the food & drinks in the resort were very reasonable. The apartments were so quiet, the beds were soft & comfortable, cleaned & towels changed daily. Will definitely return to Barceló...our apartment was 5115 & it’s a new block, beautiful place.More
