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.

Building work and the Castillo beach resort
Travelled aug 8th till 20th aug14..2 adults t2 children 7and 12..it's the biggest hotel complex that I have ever been to must be 1km to one side to the other it's huge , the problem is that you cannot book the top rooms through most travel agents this has to be done through the hotel itself, it's a bungalow type complex with some rooms above other rooms like small houses, it's all very we'll kept for such a large complex but the complex is not 4 star mor 2 to 3, the rooms are clean and up to date but the 5 star area is gated of from every one else they have ere own pool area but this can only be booked through the hotel the rest of us have to make do with the worst pool areas I have ever had the misfortune to visit broken tiles inside the pools and walk ways around the pools just horrible rough ground like a builders yard we all cut our feet in the pools especially the ones below the restaurant and the one that is all in the pictures there is another pool as we'll 300m on the beach front which is just as bad the other small pool which is small and has a jacuzzi as we'll is not as bad but it is by far the worst pool areas I have ever seen for such a big complex, they are in the middle of a huge building operation and they are building some new pools close to the harbour area which the hotel is also renovating which is going to be fantastic in a couple of years when they complete all the building work, the entertainment area is 5 star with out a doubt it's fantastic but the inside bar is not big enough as the centre holds about 500 people there are bars outside the entertainment centre overlooking the small marina which is now part of the complex and a 5 star restaurant this you pay for extra it's very nice area again they are still doing building work in this area so do not be fooled by your travel company who will say this is not part of the hotel, it is and it will impact on your holiday..there are not enough areas to eat and sit and have a drink on the huge complex and there are not enough staff , he all inclusive area looks very nice but men must wear long trousers in the dinning area no exceptions. Entertainment is very good at the centre but you will struggle to gets drink especially all inclusive as the waiters look after the self catering people better as they pay more for there drinks as some all inclusive drinks are cheaper if not part of the all inclusive package, we stayed in room 2065 which is next to reception due to my disabilities it is wheel chair friendly resort which is good, only gripe with staff was they do start very early 7.00 am as it is a huge complex and also we only had towls changed 1 time in. 11 days, it will be a fab complex when they have built the new pools and finished upgrading all the rooms and marina area but this is going to be at least 2 years so management told me , do not get confused with the thalasso barcello which is very close to this complex and is also a spa which you can book if you like it is much nicer pool area there but you cannot use it but they can use our entertainment centre which I thought was a bit mean as they have there own entertainment centre, the thalasso pools are fantastic though we would stay there if we went to e resort again..the resort is small with about a dozen shops and a dozen bars, the market is overrated though but worth a hour no more...More

Fantastic Family resort
The Castillo Beach has something for everyone. Kids are entertained by the fabulous Pool complex and adults will love the Food and Drink on Offer. We stayed in a "Superior" Bungalow which was Fantastic - would be nice to upgrade to "Premium" but with so little time spent in the bungalow it's not really worth it - Unless you are a romantic couple perhaps to make use of the Private Jacuzzi that come with "Premium" accommodation.More

Brilliant family holiday-perfect for a relaxing get-away!!!
We have just returned from a fantastic holiday at BarcelÃ³ Castillo!!! After reading the negative comments prior to going we were worried if we had made the right choice.... and so pleased we did!!! Fantastic from start to finish!!!! On booking I requested if possible to have either a pool or sea view- and wow that is exactly what we got a fantastic view of Caleta de fuste bay!!! (we stayed in 2000 block -2113). A spacious apartment , fresh towels and cleaned every day. Surrounded by tropical plants of all varieties- Aloe Vera, Hibiscus, Cacti- really the plants are beautiful- and if you enjoy gardening you will be pleased!! We went all inclusive and enjoyed the variety of choice... lots of fresh fish, meats,paella, salads, variety of breads, cheeses ( Majero- the locally produced Goats cheese- is a must!) Olives. Help yourself to soft drinks or Tropical beer!! The breakfasts were definitely the best, from Croissants to the lush Churros with pots of warmed choc sauce to pour on yum! Omelettes cooked while you wait. Then bacon, eggs etc. Lots of cereal, fresh fruit, yogurts!! Ok the pool's are saltwater... what's the big problem?? It doesn't take long to get used of it and it certainly gives you a better tan. We stayed around the main pools by the Castillo itself. Another fab pool which we went to was by the 4000 block, beautiful and very close to the beach with fab views!! There is a lovely walk along from the main Castillo pool along to the harbour, which is very modern. Puerto Castillo bar and entertainment- all of the evening entertainment takes place here- there is a charge for international drinks- however is not that expensive and where in the UK could you buy a Cocktail for approx. Â£2.30!!! Mojitos and BarcelÃ³ Cocktails are delish, as well as non-alcoholic ones for the kids, like Pinky, Bubu and Sanfranciso!!! We often sat there on a evening after our evening meal to watch the world go by and the sunset. Also another great bar with 30% discount was La Perlita situated near the beach and the staff were great with the kids!!! Main shops are situated past the sister hotel BarcelÃ³ Fuerteventura- lots of lovely shops , cafes . Also the local market Tues-Sat is close by to the shopping area, and was certainly an experience- and good chance to haggle a bargain!!! Our daughter had her hair braided and we also had a Cartoon sketch done of the family for 18 euros!!! The people are so friendly and welcoming, every member of staff within BarcelÃ³ Castillo said Hola!!! Reception staff were helpful and allowed us to print our boarding passes for the flight back home (something which I was worried about) . A big thumbs up to everyone at BarcelÃ³ Castillo - we have had a very memorable holiday and one day shall return to Fuerteventura- Beautiful place and perfect destination for some family fun!!!! Good times!!!xMore

Great location for a family holiday
Stayed here for 2 weeks 6th august. The complex is literally 10 minutes away from airport which is excellent. Stayed in bungalow 4006 which was situated just behind the pizzeria and small pool and our accommodation was really nice, full kitchen facilities including dining table chairs, and lovely bathroom, plenty of space for clothes in wardrobes too. We tended to use the pool located next to the mini club which was lovely and the children felt safe in the small pool, the added bonus of the beach directly in front of the pool if you fancy a change. We were All Inclusive and found the food to be good but somewhat repetitive. The snack bar was not so great so we tended to go to restaurant for all meals. Kids entertainment was good, adult entertainment was ok. The only negative thing to say is that the Queues for drinks in the entertainment centre were ridiculous to say the least - for the size of the complex the bar was far too small for the amount of people straying there.More
A great all round Family Holiday
Just returned from this resort which I consider to be the best of the BarcelÃ³'s in The Canaries. The bar staff work hard, but can seem a little off at times, but get to know them, they are very friendly. We stayed across the road from the main hotel complex which was no great hardship. We had an ocean view from our patio and the rooms are very well appointed. Most importantly the air condition works very well and we sometimes had to turn it down as the room was too cold. Great area by the beach, as was the ability to wander into some of the other BarcelÃ³'s, around the beach, for a swim and a drink. The only little negative was the salt water pools. But this did not retract from a great holiday. I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel and we will definitely be booking again.More
