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.

Not a 4 star

Stayed at this hotel 15th - 22nd November and the weather was awful, which obviously isn't the hotels fault but there is no where to go at the hotel if it is raining. No indoor bar area or anything. We had to go back to our rooms or hang around outside the restaurant until it stopped. Rained most days too. We stayed all inclusive and it is the worst all inclusive I have ever been too. Cocktails are ready mixed - the kind you can get from home bargains for £2 not nice at all. Beer, wine ect is self serve which sounds good but don't be fooled. You only have tiny glasses to use, which means your constantly up and down to the bar. Restaurant is lovely, however the food is rubbish if you like flavour and warm food, same stuff every night and always had to put it in the microwave because it was stone cold by the time we got back to the table. We are out most days for lunch & dinner which ended up costing us a fortune. Beach is lovely & the sea but it is freezing as are the pools. Could do with being heated in the winter months. We only saw about 4 hours sunshine the whole week. Covered by black clouds & rain the rest. Spent the last day on a trip to lanzarote and it was lovely. Weather was gorgeous compared to here. Entertainment great for kids but nothing for adults. If you want to go to this hotel then I would defiantly recommend self catering. Spoke to quite a few people who said the same thing.. This hotel is not a 4*. More

Super Holiday-few gripes

Went as a family of 4 at the end of August, Overall we had a wonderful holiday, our girls (9 & 5) loved it although they didn't use the kids club once. Apartment great (3000's) apart from the shower door not touching the floor. flooded bathroom most days. Went bed & breakfast, and was ok if you don't mind repetition and lukewarm food, Had to pay for an iron!!! From a 4 star hotel? Strange. Swimming pools were great and difficult to understand reviewers gripes with the salt water, Rather that than chlorine, cleaner. Entertainment-went twice, Pretty cringe worthy. even for our 9 year old. In saying all that, holiday was wonderful. Resort is safe for the kids, spotless and well laid out. Caleta is a little town with plenty of bars and restaurants and free from the usual louts that are found in other parts of Spain. Barcelo resort very nice with a stunning bay a few steps away. Not a cockroach in sight, maybe we got lucky. We will go back.More

Excellent Hotel

Stayed for one week 12-19 November. Our apartment was immaculate and very modern, with its own patio including sun loungers and table and chairs (we stayed in the 2000 blocks). Only problem being we upgraded through Thomson for a double room and there are no double rooms at the resort, however, the thomsons rep (Andrew) was brilliant at sorting this out and refunded the money while we were there!! Restaurant is lovely, food ok, can get busy as its small for the size of resort. There are also lots of places nearby to eat if you are on half board or self catering, with some discounts at some of the new bars at the marina. Entertainment I felt was mostly for children, although some of the magic shows at parts were quite good. I would recommend the sports bar next door to the theatre just for the size of the drinks!!! And reasonably priced!! Would definetely recommend this hotel More

Overall lovely holiday

We stayed at the resort for a week the first week in November, and we would go back again, however we would not go all inclusive again as we found there was only 1 restuarant you could go to, the buffet restuarant which was very nice, but would of liked more variety, we walked past a lovely pizza place on the complex but this was 30% discount to all inclusive members, as was the bar next to the main entertainment bar down by the marina and also the lovely lounge bar, also the main entertainment area that was all inclusive at night which overlooked the marina was not all inclusive in the day before 5.30 which we found strange, next time we will go bed and breakfast because as well as the pizza restuaurant etc there were lots of bars out of the complex that looked good value for money and fun. Our room was in the 3000 block and was a little dated, it was a bit dark, and we did see a couple of small cockroaches the first day but we didn't see anymore after that, the maintenance men looked as though they had a chemical that they sprayed. Overall we enjoyed the holiday and the salt water pool area was lovely, the little winding paths around the bungalows were very nice at the complex was very well maintained, would definately go back but not all inclusive.More

Barcelo Beach Resort & Caleta & Rosario (capital)

HOTEL Taxi from the airport is about €13. The hotel is in a great location for the beach. However it is a 4 minute walk from reception to the nearest bars & restaurants & a further 4 minutes to two other places where there are plenty of other bars & restaurants. The walk from the hotel is along a pleasant palm tree lined road. The complex is massive and stretches in hundreds of yards back along the palm tree lined road and in both directions along the beach. The complex is extremely well maintained. There are plants everywhere. There are lots of security cameras: also security guards patrolling during the night. We stayed in a 'seafront superior bungalow' on a self-catering basis so did not sample the hotel food. The bungalow had a bedroom, bathroom with walkin shower, lounge & small kitchen area. There was a patio with table & four chairs plus two loungers. The view from the patio was onto the beach & across the bay - very nice. However the patio did not get any sun until mid afternoon and then it was shielded by the nearby palm trees. It didn't look like any of the ground floor seafront bungalows had sun, so if that is what you are looking for then I would request upper floor accommodation. In fact I would say that very few of all the accommodation got any sun. A microwave is provided but no dishes to use in it. Also, if self-catering, I would bring a tea towel or two as the hotel don't provide these. We had daily maid service with towels changed when you wanted. The bed linen was changed on the 4th & 7th days. However the hotel let itself down by not changing the sheets on the 10th day thereby making us use the same bed sheets for 6 consecutive nights. In all other respects the bungalow was kept spotlessly clean. A good safety feature is that there is a fire extinguisher in the bungalow. However I think it is water and if this is correct then there should be a notice 'not to be used on electrical fires'. Had a bulb not working in the lounge & kitchen sink plug got stuck - both rectified within an hour after reporting to reception. There are several hotel pools. At the one we used there were plenty of sunbeds so no rush in a morning to reserve one. You have to take an outside walk to the hotel's bars & restaurants. The hotel has its own ATM. Used Reception twice - both occasions the staff were very helpful. The safe costs €3 euros a day. Pool towels are available from reception. You leave a €10 deposit and pay €2 for the towel to be cleaned. The hotel has WiFi but they charge €3 for 3 hours, €7 for a day & €25 for a week. It's a shame that a 3 star hotel in the Barcelo Group can't provide free WiFi in their reception area. But don't worry because virtually every bar and restaurant has its own WiFi and they are all happy to give out their Password. BEACH Good size & gently slops into the bay. Two sunbeds & a parasol costs €10.50. Nice walk along the promenade to a small shopping centre near the Sheraton hotel. CALETA FUESTE Small resort with ample restaurants & bars in three main areas. Very clean with virtually no litter. Would probably suit couples & families. Push chair & wheel chair friendly as there was a ramp along side steps. All meals were of good to excellent quality. The British bars offered 'pub food' at a decent price. For example, fish or chicken and chips is around €8 with lots of specials for €5. If you are into big breakfasts then try the Kobe Steakhouse (on the FV2 main road just at the underpass to the market) for exceptional value - double eggs, bacon & sausage plus the usual for €2.50 or triple plus a free drink for €4.50. Could not fault any of the restaurants we ate in, so really just choose the ones you fancy from the menus on display. PUERTO ROSARIO The Capital, but not much to see. If you want to go by public transport you get the number 3 bus from the main FV2 road. It costs €1.45 one way and takes about 25 mins. For the shopping area in Rosario get off the bus before the terminus. Look out for the Hippo Supermarket sign at the big shopping centre (on the right hand side). The bus stop to return is immediately opposite on the other side of the road. If you want to go elsewhere on the Island all the buses connect at the Rosario bus station. The hotel reception provided us with timetables. If you want to see lots of places on Fuenventura then I would suggest hiring a car. There are several car hire companies in Caleta.More
