    Location 6.75 /10

    The seaside resort village of Pájara is one of the westernmost towns on Fuerteventura. It is located 5 mi from Jandia, where windsurfing championships are held annually. The airport is about 50 mi further north and can be reached along the main road and a short section of motorway. The transfer takes about an hour.

    Accommodation 7.25 /10

    The 715 guest rooms are located on terraced slopes in bungalows built in the authentic rural style of the Canary Islands, and are impeccably painted in bright white. The rooms could not be cleaner and in addition benefit from plenty of light. The decor is surprising, to say the least, with yellow walls and slightly flashy furniture daubed with golden paint and mouldings. You'll soon get used to it though, and will probably be amused more than anything else.
    The facilities include an old satellite television, a direct international phone line, individual air-conditioning, a safe that can be hired for an additional fee, a mini fridge, and a balcony or a terrace (depending on the floor) with a table and chairs. The bathroom is lined with imitation antique marble tiling and is quite adequately equipped with a bathtub, toilet, hair-dryer, and hospitality products.

    Overview 7.50 /10

    The Fuerteventura Princess is a sprawling complex stretching right down to the sea. It consists of a large building where the lobby and main restaurant can be found. The lobby is absolutely huge and you will feel like you are entering a cathedral, such is the height of the ceiling soaring overhead. Lined with light coloured wooden planks, it is supported by big pillars which are also made of wood. The floor is covered with tiles in soft colours like grey and green. There is also a very pleasant relaxation space furnished with rattan chairs and dotted with dwarf palm trees. The whole area bathes in sunlight pouring in through the windows high up the walls. The outdoor spaces have been converted into a series of terraces; covered with exotic plants, they gradually lead down to the beach.
    Half-way down the property there are two huge freeform swimming pools, one of which is heated. There are plenty of deckchairs set around them, but no parasols, so be careful of the sun. Another pool is provided especially for children, who also have a playground and a mini-club (age 4 and up). Below this is a small massage centre and a fairly well equipped gym, both of which give onto an open-air solarium.

    Food and drink 7.25 /10

    You don't risk dying of hunger at the Fuerteventura Princess. In addition to the main restaurant, there are countless bars and places selling snacks at the hotel. The main restaurant is located in the main building and serves breakfast and dinner as a buffet, featuring show cooking. The dining room has an impressive capacity of 500 places. You can therefore expect queues, which is inevitable, given the delicious dishes on offer! At lunchtime, there are two outdoor options: the pizzeria or the à la carte restaurant, La Choza, which has a superb terrace overlooking the sea. If you just feel like a tasty fruit juice, make for Bar Vitaminas. As for cocktails, you can choose between the Antigua and the Betancuria, where you can also catch a show in the evening. Finally, you can enjoy a coffee at the Coco Loca, which is located on a small artificial island in the middle of the pool, or at the lobby bar. You'll probably need to stay for a whole week to try all the options!

    Beach 7.25 /10

    When you arrive at the start of your holiday, you will be given a special magnetic card to access the beach, which can be reached at the end of a sloping dirt track. Special access is provided for guests with reduced mobility. A beautiful, wild beach covered with fine, light coloured sand, the sea here is relatively calm, warm, and clear. Unsurprisingly, the Blue Pavilion flag flies here (a French distinction for environmental awareness). The beach is equipped with showers and toilets. There are also deckchairs and parasols, but these must be hired like just about everywhere else on the island. The only downside of the setting is that for all its beauty, the beach is really not wide enough and soon starts to feel overcrowded. If it gets too busy, head for the huge beaches at Jandia, which are a 10 minute drive away.

    To know

    The Fuerteventura Princess belongs to the Spanish hotel chain Princess, which owns a number of establishments on the Canary Islands, the Spanish mainland, the Caribbean, and Mexico. The town of Pájara is very badly signposted once off the main road, and it is easy to miss the turnoff altogether. Don't be shy to ask the locals to point you in the right direction; they are really friendly and happy to help. There is a nudist area with its own swimming pool in the hotel gardens.

        The hotel is wonderful and the staff: helpful, friendly, and professional - pity that Lookea staff don't aspire to the same standards. During the day they destroy the peaceful atmosphere with their incredibly loud music and even louder announcements. Is this typical of Club Lookea? Or is there a rogue team at the Princess that would rather be in a Club 18-30/Butlins style hotel? At lunch don't be surprised to see the Lookea staff racing to beat the guests to the food - it's appalling to see.

      • Advantages

        The beach is beautiful. It is small though, it only runs for about 12 miles from Costa Calma to Morro Jable. Francesca Long, if she is a real person, has obviously never been there! The locals are friendly, but you won't find any on the motorway.

      • Disavantages

        Yes, it's hard to find as it's not in Paraja town - which is 25 miles to the north! It's in the municipality of Paraja which covers everything south of Costa Calma. It's not a peaceful place to stay though since Club 18-30 style Lookea arrived.
