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.

Great place for a family holiday

Great complex close to the beach, rooms are clean and spacious, pool area is great not too overcrowded (oct). Quiet at nighttime- no disturbances. We had some ants in our baby formula and other food- buy or bring sealed containers to put food inside. We had an upstairs apartment- the terrace was secure for our baby (1year old)- downstairs apartments don't have enclosed terraces so for mini toddlers/ crawlers the upstairs rooms are a good option. We would have loved a beach view but didn't book one and none available when we arrived. All staff are very helpful and professional. Can't fault this place! Gave 4 for cleanliness because of the ants (unavoidable) and 4 for value, €15 "rental" for a highchair when we paid €800 for our stay! More

Our holiday

We had a bungalow right at poolside and near to the beach which was lovely we had a few minor complaints but nothing that would stop us retuning next year. We love Barcelo Hotel and everyone is so nice. Can't comment on the food as we sell catered but all the places to eat were excellent Chinese, Italian, Steak House they all gave value for money. We were a family of 7 with 2 small children and they were very safe and secure. Will return!More

Fuerteventura Barcelo Self Catering

Having stayed at the Fuerteventura Barcelo Beach Club Resort, Caleta de Fuste now several times since 2007, it is tiring that attention to the claimed self catering service level is not maintained. The kitchen accessories are not regularly checked for broken, damaged or missing items and there is no inventory for checking purposes. Requests for insufficient items were attended to, requests for additional items were ignored. We always book a double room but invariably we have to request the room service to change from the 2 x single default to a double. This is not a problem but different linen is required. The booking requirement never appears to be passed to those responsible for the room makeup or perhaps it is just ignored. On our recent stay, because the chambermaid was changed, we had to request this 3 times during the 2 weeks. The rooms at the Beach Club Resort are spacious, the kitchen area is small. The refrigerator housed under the worktop was overheating in our apartment, there was no ventilation for it so we regularly pulled it forward to allow it to cool down and function more normally. The refrigerator had a shelf missing, for the star rating of the accommodation these are the irritating issues that dilute the overall quality. More attention is paid to the gardens and pavings than the apartment comfort and facilities. Many of the apartments are showing signs of age, there are many with cracks in the render of the external walls albeit still regularly decorated. On the patio areas, there are timber pagoda like constructions where your favourite pigeons (many of them) can perch and defacate whilst waiting to catch some crumb should you decide to dine al fresco with their company. In the resort, there are may bars, restaurants and even supermarkets offering free wifi but not the Barcelo. From 7 euros a day you can purchase that so better get a cheap drink in a local bar and get your free wifi as an accompaniment. That alone makes the Barcelo look a little Dickensian. The outdated poolside entertainment location has finally been dispensed with and a new purpose built harbour side building is used in its place. The island of Fuerteventura has much to offer so we always hire a car to be out every day so returning to the apartment for somewhere to sleep makes this location very suitable. Caleta de Fuste has man made beaches of a sand reminiscent of building sand. It is very fine, easily water borne and messes your beach towels immensely. More

Excellent

On the whole our stay at the Barcelo was very good. We went self catering and had the freedom of doing our own thing but was able to use all the facilities within the hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful.The Barcelo is conveniently situated, very close the the beach.The shops, bars and restaurants were all close by just a short walk.We would defiantly go back and have recommended it to family and friends.Thank you for an enjoyable stay.

Nice Relaxing Holiday

I suppose the time of year you go depends a lot on if you get a relaxing holiday or not, which is what we were hoping for. We went October 2014 and we managed to get the relaxation we were looking for. The hotal is well placed with al of the accommodation close to the sea. We had a superior bungalow and requested somewhere quiet, which they didn't achieve. It was away from the noise of the pool areas but next to the main road to the hotel and the buses wole me up from 6.30 onwards on their way past. This aside, the reception is nice and the staff can't do enough for you. The bugalow was spacious enough for two, but I think a little small for a family of four. the litchen is very basis with only two cooking rings, a microwave, toaster and kettle and minimal knifes and forks etc, but it was adequate. The facilities are overall OK, but the patios you get are great to have your own little private sunbating area and are regular sun traps, or ours was. We had two problems with a bathroom that smelt of smelly drains and a toaster that tripeed the electrics when you tried to use it and both were sorted out quicly, the toaster was replaced within 15 mins ans the bathroom within the hour. It has aircon in the rooms and bedrooms (get two pass cards so you can leave the aircon on at night for when you get in). The on;y bad thing about the bungalow is the lighting, it is just about adequate in the living area, but the bedroom is pathetic, it has two bedside cabinet lights and thats it. Considering oyu get dressed in this room you can't have the curtains open to see and at night I had to resort to using the torch on my phone to find clothes from the wardrobe. All the pools are salt water so i can't comment on these as I didn't use them. They did look very clean and had bars nearby. One good service is that at reception they have showers for people who check out by 1200 hours (which is a generous time) and leave on the evening flights. Not only are very clean and well cared for showers made available they will provide the towel, shampoo and shower gel as well. One thing that is a little weird is the night entertainment area. We went there for a musical extravaganza. It is waitress service and we were promptly served two drinks. As we were only self catering (denoted by a blue wristband (which do get on your nerves) we tried to pay, but all the waitressess seemed to think anyone with a wristband was entitled to free drinks, so they wouldn't let us pay, work that one out?? All in all, weighing up the pros and cons I thought this hotel is a good place to visit so gave 4 out of 5More
