Amy Adejokun Section editor

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!

    Location 6.5 /10

    Caleta de Fuste is one of the closest tourist resorts to Fuerteventura airport (approximately 5 mi away). The advantage of this is that you are not completely exhausted by the time you reach the hotel. However, the usual kinds of shops (supermarkets, tobacconists, etc.) are unfortunately very inconveniently spread over the town. Basically, the only businesses of interest in the centre of town are bars and restaurants, not all of which look too appealing either. You will therefore need your own form of transport if you wish to stock up on groceries, because the shopping centres are on the outskirts. The hotel is in the middle of a residential area, with no places of interest nearby. Castillo Beach is a 15-minute walk away along a promenade running past various hotels along the coastline.

    Accommodation 7.25 /10

    The hotel has 247 apartments, for a total capacity of 1,500 guests. There are two types of accommodation: apartments with a double room and apartments with two separate rooms. The rooms are really spacious, and you can fit in four people without it being a squeeze. Whether or not you can survive without air conditioning is another question, and there's the rub, especially because the windows offering pretty sea views (for an additional £5) are south-facing! The fact there is no remote control for the television pales in comparison to this.
    The apartments are clean and pleasantly decorated, but the soundproofing could be better (come prepared for musical entertainment in the evening). The kitchenette is adequately equipped with dishes, a microwave, hobs, a fridge, a sink and an extractor hood. There is also a lounge area with a sofa, coffee table, satellite television (but no remote control, as mentioned above), a halogen lamp, a telephone, and plenty of space to stow your luggage. A safe is available at reception, although this costs £18 per week. The room is well-lit thanks to the glass French doors (beware: they jam easily). Outside, there is a fairly large balcony furnished with a table and chairs. The bathroom is not immense, but it is functional and is provided with the bare necessities: a bathtub and toilet, and a few hospitality products.

    Overview 6.75 /10

    The Elba Castillo San Jorge & Antigua was built in 1998. It is an imposing three-storey building and cuts quite a dash in its position next to the sea. Indeed, the light ochre paintwork covering the buildings is impeccable. However, you soon become disenchanted on entering the lobby, an area with sagging armchairs and sofas that is not exactly bathed in light... The only aspect of the decor that shows any signs of modernity is the tiling on the floor! The inner courtyard is depressingly lifeless and offers no unobstructed views, and the reddish paving stones give the place an even sorrier appearance. The swimming pools also look like they have seen better days, and here and there the tiles are missing. Even the outdoor children's games have an old fashioned look about them. Basically, the whole place could do with a good refurbishment!

    Food and drink 6.50 /10

    Buffet meals served in hotels on the Canary Islands hardly enjoy the best reputation, and the cuisine at the Elba Castillo San Jorge & Antigua is a striking illustration of why this may be. Breakfast and dinner are served as a buffet in the main restaurant, a rather ordinary space whose decor fails to inject it with any character. Although we were told that all the food was fresh, the appearance of some of the desserts contradicts this (steer clear of anything creamy, and the yoghurts too, because some of them are past their sell-by date). The rest of the food is presented in a rather slipshod manner and offers a pretty limited amount of choice. Some of the options, like the pasta shells and cordon bleu dishes, take you straight back to the school canteen, with quality to match. Themed evenings (Canary Islands, Chinese, Mexican, etc.) are organised during the week. In the daytime, you can eat and drink at the snack bar near the swimming pool (it opens from 10:00am to 6:00pm). Finally, Bar Inglès, which is an attempt at a British style pub, has a pool table and various other games.

    Beach 7.00 /10

    Castillo Beach is just over 500 metres from the hotel on foot, but the path running along the coastline is a nice way to get there. It is a public beach, so equipment like parasols and deckchairs come at an additional cost of just under £3 per item. Although this beach might not be as beautiful as its rivals further north, there is no denying the calmness of the transparent warm water that laps the shore. The sand is fine and of good quality, and young children can splash about in complete safety.

    To know

    Golf fanatics will be delighted to hear that the hotel provides a free shuttle service to take you to the 18-hole golf course that also belongs to the Elba chain, just on the outskirts of Caleta de Fuste. Guests can move freely between the two buildings, the San Jorge and the Antigua.

      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!

      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.
