Amy Adejokun Section editor

One thing is for sure: the Barcelo hotel chain certainly has some nice surprises in store for visitors to the island of Fuerteventura. The Castillo Beach Resort stands directly beside one of the other complexes in the chain, the Fuerteventura Thalasso Spa. Although the two are based on different concepts, when it comes to welcome, comfort, and quality of service, there is no doubt whatsoever that they belong to the same chain. This village of bungalows is particularly ideal for families, not least because it stands right on the beachfront.

    Location 7.0 /10

    Caleta de Fuste is one of the closest tourist resorts to Fuerteventura (just under 5 mi), so transfer time from the airport is extremely short! Given that the town centre consists exclusively of bars and restaurants (some of which are not exactly appealing), you really will need a car if you want to visit the shopping centres on the outskirts of Caleta. Castillo Beach is just a few steps away across a paved seafront promenade, perfect for a morning jog or a nice stroll to help digestion after dinner.

    Accommodation 7.75 /10

    The 380 bungalows in the complex include 287 superiors (31 of which are so-called 'deluxe' apartments) and 93 standards. Other than the slightly smarter and trendier furniture, there's really very little difference between the rooms and they all provide a high level of comfort. They are also all very clean and feature charming low-key decor in shades of cream and light wood, which generally go well together. Another bonus is the fact that this is one of the few hotels on the island to provide heating in winter. On the downside, if you're staying on the ground floor you won't get any privacy on your terrace since they are entirely open to the prying eyes of passers-by, which is quite frankly annoying. The amenities, meanwhile, are perfectly decent: a table, chairs, and deckchairs on the terrace, satellite television (finally, a flat-screen television on the island!), a direct international phone line, individual air-conditioning, a kitchenette complete with crockery, a refrigerator, and a microwave, a safe (available to hire), and Wi-Fi access (for which there is a charge). The bathrooms feature rather modern decor, including a pretty, grey monochrome ceramic piece, and are equipped with either a shower or a bathtub, an integral toilet, a hair-dryer, and a fine selection of hospitality products.

    Overview 7.75 /10

    Having been built in 1981, the Barcelo Castillo Beach may well be 20 years older than its cousin but it certainly doesn't look it! The reception is lit by a series of large picture windows that let in plenty of sunlight. These, combined with the impressively high, light-coloured wooden ceiling and chunky beams, give the place a very airy feel. The rest of the complex is designed in the style of an actual village, its 380 fully equipped bungalows dotted around the tropical gardens where the local cats wander at will. The atmosphere here is very peaceful and you won't hear any traffic noise from within the complex.
    When it comes to leisure facilities, the hotel boasts 3 swimming pools - one that is heated in winter, another filled with seawater, and the final one a children's pool. One of them is located close to an ancient tower and relic of the island's historical past. Unfortunately, though, those who have come looking for peace and quiet and a chance to enjoy the beautiful setting may be put off by the 90s dance music blaring out around the poolside! If you're a fan of the bubbles, however, you'll be pleased to know there's an outdoor whirlpool bath here as well. As well as the gym classes provided by the hotel's cheery entertainment team, those who like to keep active might like to take advantage of the gym at the spa or even enjoy a game of tennis at the Barcelo Fuerteventura Thalasso Spa.

    Food and drink 7.75 /10

    Of course, all these hungry holidaymakers need to be fed and they're certainly in the right place here! Let's start with the main buffet-restaurant, the El Menù, where you'll find a fairly varied and perfectly decent selection of dishes on offer. Unfortunately though, there is no doubt that the pastries served for dessert are not homemade. Theme nights are organised every week. There are also a further two restaurants, this time à la carte: the La Paella, serving authentic Canarian cuisine with a beautiful terrace overlooking the sea, and the El Perlita pizzeria overlooking the little fort. Bars are dotted about the complex (primarily near the pools) so it would certainly take a lot of willpower to go hungry at the Barcelo Castillo Beach!

    Beach 7.50 /10

    The large Castillo municipal beach is just a stone's throw from the hotel and as is the case on the majority of the island's beaches, parasols and deckchairs are available to hire only (for around £2.70 per item). The setting may not be the most idyllic, but compared to the large beaches in the north, the high quality sand here is fine and the gorgeous water crystal clear. The current isn't very strong either so it's safe for little ones to paddle about (under adult supervision, of course!).

    To know

    Guests at the Barcelo Castillo Beach Resort are entitled (and even encouraged) to use the spa services at the neighbouring Barcelo Fuerteventura Thalasso Spa. The surroundings here are very pleasant indeed, with facilities including a wide range of treatments and massages, as well as a water circuit. If that's something you fancy trying, it's best to book relatively early since it can get pretty busy.

      A hotel claiming to be 'the best family resort' in such and such place is always regarded with a degree of suspicion, but you have to admit that in this case, the Barcelo Fuerteventura Thalasso Spa is certainly a very good contender. The hotel operates on an all-inclusive basis and offers a large number of activities and a variety of entertainment for young and old alike, not to mention a lovely thalassotherapy centre with countless different treatments, all just a few metres from the beach!

      Apart from the short transfer from the nearby airport (it takes exactly 15 minutes), there is nothing particularly interesting to say about the Elba Castillo San Jorge & Antigua, a Frameco establishment. Although the apartments appear from the outside to be brand new, once inside it is a quite different story... Given the old-fashioned style, very average food, and the fact there is no air-conditioning in the rooms, the rates are a bit steep. Luckily, guests are given a warm welcome!
