    Location 6.5 /10

    The tourist resort of Jandia is located at the southern tip of Fuerteventura, just under a mile from the village of Morro Jable. The complex runs along an extraordinary coastline, with white sandy beaches stretching as far as the eye can see. It is pretty much the furthest urban area from the airport, some 53 mi to the north near the capital of Puerto del Rosario. Unsurprisingly, transfer time is a little over an hour via the motorway.

    Accommodation 7.50 /10

    The hotel's 638 guest rooms are located in different blocks and are all more or less identical to those at the Barcelo Jandia Mar. In fact, the only thing that really changes slightly is the decor, which consists of white walls, brick-coloured tiling, colourful curtains and cream bedspreads. The rooms are also similar in terms of amenities: satellite television, a direct international telephone line, individual air-conditioning combined with a ceiling fan, a desk, an average-sized balcony furnished with a table and chairs, a safe (available to hire), and a small refrigerator. The bathrooms, meanwhile, are large and clean and come with a bathtub, an integral toilet, a bidet, a hair-dryer, and a selection of hospitality products.

    Overview 7.50 /10

    Having been built in 2004, the Jandia Playa is a year older than the neighbouring Barcelo Jandia Mar but it does offer better views of the Atlantic. Its medieval fortress-style architecture is pretty imposing but nevertheless rather harmonious and painted in shades of ochre brown and yellow. Inside, meanwhile, the lobby is very bright and lit by a series of large picture windows. The decor, meanwhile, consists of a selection of plants, a combination of light tiled and parquet flooring, beautiful wooden beams supporting the ceiling and large mural paintings of Canarian flowers, all of which make for very pleasant, airy surroundings where you'll soon be feeling right at home.
    Outside you'll find a huge lagoon-style swimming pool adorned with a series of little wooden bridges and incorporating a jacuzzi area, a special area for water activities (water polo, aquagym, etc.) and a pool bar in the middle of it all. In fact, there are a total of 5 swimming pools at the hotel, including the children's pool. Other children's facilities include the Barcy mini-club and a play area, whilst the sports facilities on offer for grown-ups are pretty predictable but nevertheless perfectly decent. If rest and relaxation sound more up your street, you'll be pleased to know that the hotel also has a well-being centre, complete with a small heated pool and a variety of treatments and massages on offer at pretty good prices.

    Food and drink 7.50 /10

    When it comes to meal times, you'll certainly be spoilt for choice here! In fact, the hotel boasts no fewer than 4 restaurants and 6 bars where hungry guests can eat pretty much whenever they like between the early hours and 11:00pm. The main buffet restaurant is the Corralejo, which offers such an impressive selection of starters, soups, pasta dishes, goat's cheese, cakes and ice creams, you won't know where to start, particularly as the quality is so good! Show cooking demonstrations and theme nights are also held several times a week.
    The second buffet restaurant is the Morro Jable, a sort of self-service snack-bar serving various salads, hot dishes, and a few desserts. The 2 remaining restaurants, the Costa Calma and the Gran Tarajal, are themed à la carte restaurants serving more local cuisine, along with some traditional Spanish dishes, such as tapas. The 6 bars are spread throughout the complex and include, of course, a lobby and a poolside bar. There is also a bar in the disco, which is open only in the evenings, as well as a theatre bar in the hotel's showroom and another bar which also serves as a snack-bar during the day.

    Beach 7.25 /10

    The endless beaches of the Jandia coastline, renowned for being the most beautiful the island has to offer, are just across the road from the hotel. In fact, they are also a favourite with the organisers of the kite-surfing and windsurfing world championships! After all, how can anyone resist the appeal of this fine white sand and the crystal-clear water along its shore? Furthermore, this part of the island is pretty windy, making it ideal for windsurfing but not necessarily for swimming, though you will find a flag on the beach indicating the danger level. Despite the very uneven shoreline, children can bathe quite happily by the sea, provided that it's not too windy and that mum and dad are keeping a close eye on them, of course.

    To know

    The all-inclusive options ends at precisely 11:00pm (apart from in the disco) but during the day, guests are entitled to as many alcoholic and soft drinks as they like. Guests at the Jandia Playa can use the mini-golf course at the Jandia Mar (the hotel just across the road which also belongs to the Barcelo chain). There is, however, an entrance fee of around £4.40 for adults, with children paying half price.
