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 family resort
If you look for family resort, then just go to Barcelo Castillo. Hotel is kids friendly, area around resort is good for many activities (walking, kids playing, sports...). If you look for great beaches, you have 1 huge just in front of hotel and then few in front of near hotels which are accessible by nice walk. If you look for more nice beaches, nudist beaches or any more water sport oriented, you need to hire a car and run a island tour. There is many more. The car can be rent right in a hotel for a reasonable price (cabriolet was around 69 eur a day or less). The hotel has plenty of different types of room, apartmans in many location as the hotel resort is huge. We had a room by a cliff with a great view on a sea right from a bed (room 1096). There was a privacy enough, big rooms, great service. The food in this hotel is great, changing every day and offering really a good variety of choice. The service at reception was great, with a Czech receptionist living there a long time so those slovak/czech citizens can get great advices for the island in their language. If you plan a visit to this hotel, just make sure you will get the room which suits your personal needs - beach view, sea view, privacy, downstairs or upstairs and such. There is also free bus to the only ZOO at the island, very nice, worth going there. During day you can take a taxi to near beaches (for cca 20 eur there and back).More
The resort and the accommodation were brilliant, but the food in the hotel restaurant was atrocious as it was either over cooked or cold only two or three dishes were palatable during our two week stay. The very local eating establishments were excellent in food quality and value.More

We enjoyed the hotel as it's in a great location for activities and sunbathing! We planned on getting an upgrade on arrival but felt no need once we had seen our beautiful appartment. It was clean and was cleaned every day. We were just steps away from the pubs and the restaurants in caletto de fuste and a short walk along the sea front would take us down to the harbour and hotel restaurants. All the staff were friendly and helpful. The only thing I was disappointed in was the food being cold on the buffet, but as we wernt all inclusive it wasn't a massive problem.More
Fantastic week away for some winter warmth.
Just back from a week staying at the Barcelo Castillo Beach Resort booked with Jet2 Holidays. Can't fault anything, brilliant from start to finish and just what we needed as a couple getting away from it all with some winter sun. The hotel was the best I've ever stayed in the Canary Islands, and has everything covered with all the staff being so friendly and welcoming. The bungalows are very comfy and well equipped with daily maid service. The restaurant had so much choice from delicious salads to freshly cooked fish and meats, tasty puds and great choice of ice cream plus beer, wine and soft drinks on tap. The snack bar by the pool was a great place for top ups during the day if you wanted extra food or had missed breakfast! Coffee was on tap with beer, wine and soft drinks as well as bar service for spirits. The Teatre El Puerto was a great place to go on an evening with a very entertaining animation team who worked very hard during the day too. There were professional shows as well as bird and reptile shows. The drinks and cocktails included in the all inclusive were better than anywhere I have previously been and well listed so no mix ups. The bar and waiting staff were very efficient and friendly. All in all a great holiday and wish I was back there as quite a shock coming back to the UK!More

Just stayed from 5th to 12th of December. Weather was glorious. We upgraded to an upstairs seaview room 2132 which was lovely. Food was ok most days but got quite repetetive and was usually lukewarm. No problems with queues probably due to the time of year. Self service bar near pool was great. Not enough included in the all inclusive. Only one bar at night time and the children's entertainment was exactly the same every night. Went out for 3 of the nights because the entertainment wasn't to our taste and the spirits were awful. The Smirnoff was never Smirnoff. Asked if the Manchester utd match was on in the sports bar and it wasn't. My big critisism was the entertainment for my 12 nearly 13 year old son. He was told he could join maxi club which at the time had 2 much younger boys in it so he didn't go too much. He was not allowed to join the adults games even though they were games such as crazy golf, ping pong, French boules etc. I can understand archery etc but what is the harm in letting the bigger kids join in when they aren't running a teen club because of the time of year? My daughter suggested it may be because bad language may be used but after some of the inappropriate music they play at the pool I don't think this is the reason. We saw a couple of cockroaches at night but expected that. The pools are freezing. They might benefit from having a heated one at this time of year. Overall a nice relaxing holiday. I would come back but probably not all inclusive because it is very limited.More
