Amy Adejokun Section editor

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! This establishment is definitely a safe bet.

    Location 7.5 /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 metres' walk away across a paved seafront promenade, perfect for a morning jog or a nice stroll to help digestion after dinner.

    Accommodation 7.70 /10

    The hotel boasts 462 standard double rooms, 5 of which have been designed especially for guests with reduced mobility. If you're lucky you'll be overlooking the ocean; otherwise it's the pool, which isn't a bad consolation prize! Very clean and well-equipped, the rooms are all decorated in a simple style, with yellow painted walls, photos of dunes on the walls, grey tiling, wicker furniture, and yellow and green curtains. Amenities include satellite television, individual air-conditioning, a direct international phone line, a mini-refrigerator, a safe (available to hire), and a reasonably-sized balcony furnished with chairs and a table. Wi-Fi Internet access is also available for an additional charge. The bathrooms, meanwhile, are rather original and include a bathtub, an integral toilet, a hair-dryer, and a selection of hospitality products.

    Overview 8.20 /10

    This 4 star hotel may have been built in 2001 but it still looks brand new. From the outside, the complex looks very modern, in contrast with the usual ungainliness of other hotels in the area. Inside though, the lobby is a completely different story: ultra contemporary red armchairs, a large wrought-iron globe in the centre of the room, and a series of cubic sculptures delineating the lounge area. All of this results in a modern, warm feel thanks in addition to the parquet flooring, abundant wood, and light filtering in through the large glass panels. We were certainly pleasantly surprised. Even the corridors are nice and wide with plenty of natural light coming in through the large picture windows.
    Outside you'll find an asymmetrical swimming pool where the majority of the water-based activities take place (it's also worth bearing in mind that the music is a tad loud here). The surroundings are perfectly pleasant and there's even a whirlpool bath; it's just a shame the deckchairs are so poorly arranged, not only because of the lack of privacy but because you're also at risk of some serious sunburn as there aren't many parasols about either. Just next to the swimming pool there's a large play area, before the second, heated swimming pool. There is also a mini-golf course and, a little further along, some sports courts and a shooting range.
    This is also where you'll find the famous thalassotherapy centre which is renowned among Canarians, some of whom come here for the quality of the treatments offered (therapists use products from the La Sultane de Saba range and it's easy to see why!). You'll certainly find a wide range of treatments on offer here, including plantar reflexology, ayurvedic facial treatments, and even an anti-stress massage with Chinese balls, along with the usual facilities including hydromassage jets, a sauna, a hammam, and a solarium, all located in a lovely glass cage.

    Food and drink 7.70 /10

    The hotel has two restaurants, which may not sound like a lot given the number of rooms, but the Maxorata, the main buffet-restaurant, has been designed to prevent holidaymakers having to wait 3 hours for their plate of shepherd's pie. The walkways through the restaurant are more like boulevards and the tables are very well spaced-out, so you can enjoy your breakfast or dinner without worrying about eavesdroppers. The cuisine, meanwhile, is very appetising, with a wide selection of crudités, cold cuts, meat and fish dishes, side dishes, desserts, and fresh fruit on offer. There is also an à la carte grill restaurant, the Aloe Vera, at the poolside, with a lovely wooden terrace. The menu here consists of a variety of typical Canarian dishes as well as various classics including a good (and generously-sized!) pizza. Again, you can't fault the variety or quality here.

    Beach 7.95 /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 of the north, the sand here is fine and of a high-quality 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

    The Fuerteventura Thalasso Spa stands adjacent to the Castillo Beach Resort complex, also part of the Barcelo chain. Guests at both hotels can use the spa, but if you fancy a treatment you'd best book in advance, as it can get unexpectedly busy.

Le buffet a vOlonté est génial, il y a beaucoup de choix cest très variés à chaque repas, Les serveurs sont aimables! Malgrès le mOnde, pas de problème pour trouver des transats au bord de la piscine, il faut juste s'y prendre à l avance pour voir les spectacles au théatre le soir (1h avant). Les spectacles sont pas mal, en particulier la danse celtique, superbe !!

        J'ai passé une semaine dans cet hôtel au mois de juin dernier. Très bel hôtel, très bien situé, à 5 mn à pied d'une immense plage de sable fin. De nombreux transats autour de la piscine ce qui est bien agréable. De nombreuses animations également. Les repas préparés au restaurant sont variés et de bon goût. Le seul reproche c'est le vent très fort qui règne sur cette partie de l'ile.

      Located in the new seaside resort of Nuevo Horizonte, close to the airport and the capital of Fuerteventura, the Costa Tropical hotel offers good value for money. Its accommodation comes in the form of apartments with a well-equipped kitchen. Unlike many hotels on the island, this hotel attracts quite a large French clientele. This very decent average-sized hotel provides everything you need in terms of entertainment, sport and facilities.

      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.
