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.

Fabulous

My partner and l have just returned from a weeks holiday at this complex, we were extremely pleased with the Staff, bungalows and complex in general. We were allocated room 2050 which was in a very quiet part of the complex and you could here a pin drop day and night. The bungalows are well equiped, toiletres suplied, towels changed every day, rooms swept and general tidy. There is a patio area with sunloungers and table and chairs, ours was secluded and not really overlooked. Everyday the paths are swept. The pool areas are clean and tidy, good sun loungers, you can hire beach towels and change them every day, plenty to do for the younger children. There are some really good restaurants a short walk in to the center. Fado rock is a must, as is 15. Don't book transfers as a taxis 12 euros. We will be returning as soon as possible. Lovely place.More

VERY DISAPPOINTED THIS TIME!!

Myself and my partner have stayed at this complex on several occasions over the last 10 years in the first floor apartments and been very satisfied, but last week we were put in one of the bungalows over the road and felt that wasn't a problem, as we had never had reason to be disappointed before. However, when we opened the door the mouldy smell hit us and it was awful. I had a fair idea it came from the air conditioning because we had that problem at work with ours once in the office. The smell was that bad that we had to open all the doors and windows to get rid of it!. We did call for a maintenance man to come out, but he didn't fix the problem. We also felt that the rooms were 'tired and worn' and needed some attention to detail. For starters the lounge was in need of a good lick of paint and the sofa bed was either dirty or the sun had bleached the material, so I didn't really want to sit on it, without using a towel to cover the material. Also in the lounge the lamp shades were full of what looked like bulb burns or it could have just been in grained dirt! The furniture needed a lick of varnish where the wood was all shabby and in the bathroom the tiles on the shower wall needed re grouting. Also in the bathroom there was no shelf in the cubical to put any toiletries, so they had to put left on the floor. The bedroom didn't have any proper draws for underwear, bikinis or t-shirts etc. Some of you reading this may think I'm been too critical, but I felt it necessary to point out that this complex has spent thousands on a new theatre with a sports bar and outside facilities and in 2013 knocked down a square to build new apartments, but have FAILED to keep their bungalows to the expectation of existing customer's, who have stayed there for many year's and on that note will not be staying there again! Trip Advisor if you could send me an email address to send this on to or pass it on yourself, I would be very grateful. One last note for all you travellers out there, don't be persuaded by the beautiful photos of some of the rooms on their website! very unhappy couple. Such a shame because we enjoyed staying there and the people including the maids were lovely. We even gave her a tip when we left.More

Great location and quality food.

Right by the bay, which had a beautiful beach and small marina but also it was only a short walk away from centre of town. Food was very good (although food hall was very busy at all times which was not always a pleasant experience, need to choose times of eating carefully) and the staff worked tirelessly to keep the place clean and tables cleared. Service was always very good! There was lots to keep children entertained throughout the day, and food to accommodate children as well - especially the chocolate fountain at dinner! Our studio suite was lovely with a great modern bathroom area, great patio with sun loungers and a small washing line airer. It had the most comfortable beds I've had in a hotel! It was cleaned well everyday. Towels soft and fresh. Good wardrobe with plenty of hangers. Spacious room with 2 TV's, one in bedroom area and one in dinning/kitchen area. Wi-fi did not work in the room, we had to go out towards or into the reception area which was the only downside to our whole stay......so not bad! Would def recommend 😎 More

Great location, but full of kids!!!!

The hotel itself was lovely, however the food was nearly always cold (which should have been hot). There was a good selection of food, and although the food was cold we managed to eat something every day. We had a superior bungalow which was lovely and overlooked the sea and was in a quite location. We appreciated the tranquillity of the bungalow as the hotel was full of kids so we spent quite a lot of time in the bungalow to get a bit of peace and quiet. There was no evening entertaining for adults it was geared more to the kids and the hotel was overrun with them! We enjoyed our stay bur glad we were only there for a week due to lack of evening entertainment for adults.More

Only small changes to be made and this would be worth 5*s

Just returned from a very good stay at the Barcelo. Caleta de Fuste is a bit of a strange town, with very little on offer apart from a couple of restaurants (fusion 22 was excellent!) and the odd souvenir shop. I assume it would be a bit busier in the peak season, but outside the hotel there really wasn't much on offer. The Barcelo itself was teeming with life, however. The hotel was fully booked during our stay, and it seemed that if you were in Caleta, this is where you would be staying. The resort is huge! Our room was on the ground floor, and was a really fantastic size. Our room entered into an internal courtyard. I would be lying if we spent any time in this area, but they have loungers and tables/chairs for those that may want to use this area. The decor in the room was modern and had amenities for those looking to cook in the room. 2 large TVs, sofa bed, comfy beds, it really was a great room. The only snag was that when you had a shower water would spill out of the wet room and would flood the floor of the toilet room. Not a major problem, but easily fixed with a drainhole fitted into the floor of the toilet. Apart from that, the room was fantastic. The pool areas are nice, with plenty of beds on offer. There were so many available that even though the hotel was fully booked, the pool areas never felt that crowded. One thing I found strange was that all the pools were saltwater. I have no idea why Barcelo wouldn't have fresh water pools? It's far more enticing to enter a fresh pool rather than a salt water pool. We were on a B&B basis and the buffet breakfast was excellent. Lots of choice to get your fill! Be wary of the waiting staff clearing your table believing you've finished if you go up for seconds though! We didn't eat in the buffet restaurant for lunch or dinner, but we ate at La Perlita and El Camarote restaurants whilst there. El Camarote was especially good. My only reservations with the hotel would be to do with there being absolutely minuscule wifi access at the hotel (get with the times Barcelo, it's 2015! Wifi only worked in reception and that was only for around 10 minutes. It didn't work anywhere else in the hotel at all), some activities not being included (a game of mini golf was 6Euros pp. Although it was a lot of fun, I don't see why these shouldn't be included in your stay), and what's not included in you are on an all inclusive basis (only certain drinks are included and only the buffet restaurant too. Everything else was at a charge) Only a few small changes to the above and this hotel would definitely be worthy of 5*. More
