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.

Would give 3 and half star if possible

When booking a hotel I normally look at the following, Room, Location, Food and Pool. Our room was nice, we was in apartment 2147 which was large, air-con worked well and was needed. Our only problem was the bed was 2 single beds pushed together and we kept falling down the middle. The location was great, we was near the beach, harbour, town, pool and reception. The food at the AI buffet was crazy. It was just too busy. Animal instincts come out during food times and some people won’t queue up, will walk through you, kill you for the last pork chop. It was a little crazy. I think that it’s not really large enough for the amount of people that are staying here. One big issue we had was we when we finished our main we would go get dessert and when we come back people would be sitting on your table. Even if you left a top or bag, the waiters would clear the plates and your items and you would come back looking confused at the people sitting there. Pools are salt water  not very happy with this. Seeing as this hotel/apartment is one of the most expensive on the Island I would have expected fresh water pools and not salt water. Luckily we had family staying at a hotel around the corner so we used that pool most days. Would I stay again? Yes I would. We had a great time and the issues at food times and the pool where not massive and for everything else that was good made up for these small issues.More

Really good But............

Ok rather than write a manuscript I'll just state what most others are saying in there's in a cut down version, Good Points: location is beautiful, accommodation is very good and clean. The food is fantastic! And the facilities are also great. Bad Points: wifi is horrendous, fuerta ventura Taxi drivers are the rudest people I've ever met, Staff have a "forced" way of customer care, and lastly not much to do onsite after 11.30 Summary: all in all we enjoyed our stay very much and felt we got value for money, would we go back?....probably not !More

Just got back from a week half board we were put in a bungalow which was quite nice near the pool very hot with a breeze so didn't feel over powering. Great place for young families with a lovely beach food was ok with no dodgy tummies harbour area was very nice good for feeding fish and the chipmunks that are wild in the rocks the complex is massive so it can be a walk to the restaurant not a problem for us but could be for some also pools could be bigger for size of place for amount of people they cater for entertainment there if you want it shops and bars nearby if you want it also all in all a good break staff all did well and very cleanMore

Our holiday 2015

Not very old an difficult to fault really. If you are a family and wanting all the facilities then this is for you. Easy access to the town and its shops, cafes and restaurants. Not many bars or traditional Spanish watering holes though. Staff were superb and the little self contained bungalows are perfect. Air conditioning was free and the safety deposit box was only 35 Euros for 2-weeks. Rooms are cleaned daily and each room has complementary shampoo, shower gel, shoe polishers which are a nice touch. We didn't eat in as it was a buffet set up which we don't like, some great restaurants though which are traditional, Portuguese, Chinese, TexMex, Steak Houses and the best Indian I have every visited and had - Aromas, not to be missed! What didn't we like? The only criticism is that on a morning the 'fun coaches' can be a little loud, one of them loved the microphone and went on a bit. The pools are salt water which once used to are better as there were no ear infections or ruined swimming costumes. All in all I think you would enjoy this place as it ticks a whole range of boxes to make an enjoyable and relaxing family holiday. The gardens are beautiful, well maintained and a joy to be in! The near by Marina and bars are gorgous too. Have fun. Ps Wifi is free but hit and miss in your room. Strong from the lovely reception and lounge areas.More

Really lovely !!

As we had never been to Fuerteventura before we were excited but when we were the only two left on the coach we thought oh no have we made a mistake but that was lucky for us we had a wonderful apartment not far from pool and a bar .It was a second floor apartment with air con in lounge and bedroom you had separate controls , we had two balconies one with a table and chair the other with two loungers in a quiet corner which was lovely . the kitchen had fridge two hot plates ok not many pans but hey your on holiday . The food in the hotel was really good lot of selection plenty of tables never had to line up , the only thing men have to wear long trousers not three quarter lengths we saw so many men being turned away so don't forget this !! The beach is a man made so when the tide goes out it is very rocky you need shoes on your feet , there is four pools for you to choose from so there is plenty of room and sunbeds , there is a bar with white sofas which at night is great very good vodka measures and if you eat there in the day the cheese burgers well I have never seen one so big and tasted fantastic .All the staff really friendly and helpful rooms were cleaned daily . there is a supermarket within the complex but a larger one within walking distance , The markets are Tuesday and Saturday where you can buy the usual bags watches t-shirts etc .If you like to get around on the bus there is a bus card you can buy then every time you travel you scan the card . Also there are plenty of places to eat if you fancy dining out ,Late night with a very good atmosphere is Pieros Bar check out Crazy Legs Brian drag act Tina turner very funny stays open until 3amMore
