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.

Great huge family hotel!!
A family of 2 adults and a 2 year old went half board - we found this hotel very good value for money. Good points: The reception looked great with a convenient super dino supermarket and plenty of bars across the huge amount of pool selection. On one side of it was the beach and on the other the docks which made a lovely place to walk down. The staff couldn't of been friendlier and the food choice/quality was great. The resort was huge stretching down the beach and being a stone throw away from a lot of bars and restaurants. Also close to the airport which saved on taxi fares! The room was really modern and smart with a great shower and tv. Bad points: A few downsides was the wifi only seemed to work in the reception which was a little disappointing and the maids didn't wash our pots for us or at least provide washing up liquid. Also evening drinks were not included (and expensive) - we wish we would of gone all inclusive. Also a lot of the pools were salt water which was a shame but we found a good clean pool for kids. Also we booked a double bed but it was just 2 singles pushed together. I would certainly recommend this hotel but go all inclusive and make sure you get an refurbished room.More

Just returned from a 10 night all inclusive holiday a this fabulous resort. Hotel complex is very large, staff really friendly and helpful. Food is plentiful and very well presented, all staff work extremly hard to keep this Â£Barcelo" at its best. The Animation Team are a wonderful set of people, family orientated but there is always something for the adults at the "showtime extravaganza" performed nightly. Only fault, well not a fault really would be a request to add more English speaking A Team staff who would be able to explain performances on stage during the evening. Felt the air slightly lent towards French/Spanish tourists and even during our stay there was an awful lot of English at this beautiful "Barcelo". Defo one to be going back to though. Well done. Keep up the good work.More

Lovely first holiday
Just returned from a week away with my boyfriend and we both loved it! The reception staff were so lovely and helpful and made us feel welcome straight away. The view from our room was amazing, we had a superior sea view bungalow, and was very clean and tidy. We decided to stay half board so the kitchen facilities were regularly used. Few utensils were available, including no tea towel or bowls, but we made do with what we had. The room was cleaned every day which was lovely. The location was awesome as they were shops and restaurants close by that catered for a majority of people and served a range of snacks and drinks. We went to the beach every day which was quite busy but we were able to easily find somewhere to relax. Breakfast was good with a range of food to choose from but dinner was not to our taste. We thought there would have been a greater range of English food but it seems that the hotel catered for Dutch tourists more which meant we decided to eat out most nights even though we had paid for half board which was a bit annoying. This would have been the only negative about our holiday, the hotel caters for both families and couples and we really enjoyed ourselves!More

I don't even know where to start - this was one of the loveliest places I have ever stayed!! We arrived for check in and were greeted by a beaming smile from the lovely Maria. We had originally booked in for adjoining rooms, but as they had none left, Maria put us in a lovely 2 bed villa (overlooking the beautiful sea! - cleaning service everyday, comfy beds, 2 bathrooms, and 2 patios), as well as offering the 5 of us a free upgrade to all inclusive as an apology. Absolutely wonderful! Pools (three of them inc a children's pool) were beautiful, never had any problems finding loungers at any time of the day, resort reps were always smiling, happy and making sure you never missed out on any of the activities that was going on (a lot of activities on the resort!!) and the food was brilliant! Champagne breakfast everyday!! What more could you ask for!? The only thing I would say was that the hotel advertises free wifi - it's only free if you're in reception, otherwise it doesn't reach your hotel room! Not a huge issue as you're not on holiday to sit on Facebook anyway! Would highly recommend this hotel for anyone looking for a great relaxing family holiday. It's right near the beach and about a 10min walk into the main town. Great staff made a great holiday! We'll for sure be back!! Thank you to all at Barcelo Castillo Beach Resort, especially Maria on reception who went above and beyond to make our stay brilliant!More

Amazing Holiday - Mainly thanks to Animation Team!
We had an amazing holiday in this wonderful resort! Location beautiful, Food beautiful, Kind, Friendly staff but the reason we found our holiday to be so good was the animation team. There was ALWAYS something fun to do around the pool or beach but with no pressure. Entertainment brilliant on an evening. They never stopped! Thank You So Much Alvin and all the Team. Take Care and maybe see you next year! Allison and Billy Pattison from England! xMore
