Offering the "all inclusive" formula until 11.00 pm, the Barcelo Jandia Mar is a quality establishment situated close to the superb and huge Jandia beach, one of the most beautiful beaches in Fuerteventura. A hotel with comprehensive facilities (swimming pools, spa, gym, sports) that are great for the whole family.
The Barcelo Jandia Mar is located 1 mi from the Jandia seaside resort, and 2 mi north of the village of Morro Jable in the southeast of Fuerteventura, a little higher up on the other side of the road, overlooking the very beautiful Jandia beach. Allow 70 minutes for the transfer from the airport, which is located 53 mi to the north.
The Barcelo Jandia Mar also has a free car park. Fitness fans will be happy with the spa, and sportspeople with the superior gym, or the many sports activities offered. You will particularly remember the multisports field, the bowling alley, and the mini golf course situated above the car park. A member of the Spanish Barcelo chain, the hotel offers almost everything as "all inclusive" until 11.00 pm. You may come across a few stray cats: they are very friendly, but avoid feeding them.
The complex consists of a sandy-coloured main building with 4 floors, as well as 9 blocks of 2 floors (each named after one of the Canarian islands), housing 485 rooms. The whole place is admirably decorated and set up: there is tropical vegetation, waterfalls, and ceiling lights, all bringing a calm atmosphere to this very pleasant and tranquil place. The bar by the swimming pool plays Mozart, which is a lot more pleasant than very loud techno music! There are also two large swimming pools separated by a waterfall, one of which has a bridge crossing it. Open from 8.00 am to 8.00 pm, they are 1m60 deep, and also have a pool for the children that is 40 cm deep. The sunbathing area has showers, deckchairs, parasols and towels that are provided free of charge when you get there. Open between 9.30 am and 1.30 pm and from 2.30 pm to 6.30 pm, the Club Spa has a whirlpool bath, two saunas, changing rooms, a large, superior gym with the latest machines, massage rooms, and a beauty room. Everything is free, apart from the massages and the beauty treatments.
The rooms of the Barcelo Jandia Mar are pleasant and well-equipped. Decorated with two pretty paintings and with ochre tiled floors decorated with patterns, they have two separate beds with flowery bed covers, a desk, a round wooden table, two chairs, a television with 21 channels, a safe with an electronic code (£1.80 per day), a fridge, telephone, and air conditioning with a ceiling fan. A large balcony arranged with a table and chair offers a beautiful view of the swimming pool and the sea. The bathroom contains a bathtub with two handles and a flexible shower, a bidet, non-separate toilet, a hair dryer, and welcome products. The more fortunate will be able to choose from one of the 12 suites and 2 master rooms: these rooms also have a lounge area with a sofa and two arm chairs, a DVD player, a hi-fi set, and the bathroom has scales, a large separate flexible shower, a large whirlpool bath, a telephone, a magnifying mirror, and a double basin.
Meals are served in the Mimosa, the main buffet restaurant, for breakfast, served between 7.30 am and 10.00 am, lunch, served between 1.00 pm and 3.00 pm, and dinner, served between 6.30 pm and 9.30 pm. The buffet offers international cuisine with show cooking. You will also have the opportunity to have dinner at the a la carte restaurant, the Tabaiba. The bar at the Aloe swimming pool serves snacks throughout the day. Those who enjoy good food will come here in the morning between 10.00 am and midday, and between 3.00 pm to 6.00 pm to taste the cakes accompanied by tea and coffee. You can sip your favourite cocktails at the swimming pool's two bars, as well as at the Hibisco bar in the lobby.
Every 40 minutes, a free shuttle is available to take you to the huge fine sand beach of Jandia in 5 minutes, with its clear waters and the majestic lighthouse which dominates it. You have to walk a little to get to the water and there is quite a big slope, but what a reward! Showers, deckchairs and sunshades are all available. Be careful: the beach is windy, there are waves and a bit of a current, but it is supervised, and a flag indicates the level of danger for swimming.
