    Very good

    The beach is amazing although very windy, impossible to lay down! The food is excelente and the swimimg pool with salty water very relaxing. The bar at the reception level to end the day with a dring sets you up for a deep and relaxing nigth. I don't agree with the reviews that say there were long queues for breakfast/dinner, during our stay the hotel was 98% full and it was easy to get the food you wanted. Also all staff was very helpfull and polite specially Manolo that filled with joy your mornings while baking for you!

    No services at the beach, contrary to other hotels we have seen this one doesn't have any services at the beach which makes it impossible to stay more than a copule of minutes. With hammocks staying at the beach will be a nice eperience!

    I liked mostly the peacefulness and the great sea views! The food was excellent, and the restaurant service, great.

    There was no free shuttle service to the airport, as many four stars hotels do.

    Superb

    The view from my the room on the beach was beautiful, ever changing, very pure. And for such a big hotel, it was very quiet at night.

    Not enough elevators. Lots of decent food but quality of dishes was not very refined.

    Superb

    Location, sea view rooms, the 4th floor bar lounge with the view, the lounge music, the waiters really doing a great job in regards of the amount of guests, Direct access to Kite beach

    Restaurant is noisy and a lot of people queuing for food. Generally, due to Arabic countries unstability, a lot of people decided to go to Canary instead of Egypt, Tunisia...and it shows.

    Fabulous

    The view to the beach is one of the most breathtaking sights in Europe

    Faultless apart from the attitude of one waiter in the dining room

    Beautiful beach just in front of the hotel.

    The factory feeling of the hotel, the complete indifference of the front office staff, and the poor quality of the food.

    Very good

    If you like windsports or beautiful beaches, this is the place to go. Location wise it cannot get better than that.

    I can understand that the all-inclusive option is appealing to folks, I simply don't like it. It means long lines at the buffet area, people eating way too much, and the waste because people have bigger eyes than stomachs is amazing. Because there is usually no tipping of waiters, you get poor service.The atmosphere at the bar is a bit sterile. Funny thing is that everybody with a red wristband (all-inclusive) guests is drinking all kinds of cocktails (careful, they have specific less than standard beverages for mixing these drinks), but at 11pm the bar quickly clears out. Reason: After 11pm the all-inclusive guests have to pay for their drinks.

    Proximity to a nice beach and great sea view from most rooms. And the food is good.

    Beware of the stairs! Not suitable for prams or wheelchairs! Family rooms in the outbuildings are only accessible through staircases. Restaurant and pool not easily accessible and we could not find a toilet near the (childrens) pool. In the main building lift capacity is insufficient. On top of that, the children's pool is freezing cold and the bedroom was stuffy with poor airconditioning. Mosquitoes, Ants and cockroaches are common in Fuerteventura, but unlike this one, some hotels manage to keep them at bay. The hotel is isolated and to go anywhere, a car is almost a must.

    Fabulous

    The location to the Sotavento Lagoon is perfect for Winsurfing and Kitesurfing! The location is pretty much away from everything plus the lagoon makes foottravel quite difficult. We liked that but if you look for action this might not be the best place. Food was good but not Gourmet style. Can get crowded at times. However we found every night always plenty of stuff we liked and didn't really mind to queue at some times. At night in can get pretty loud up to 12 because of the inner bar. You may or may not like that :-)

    We will come back next year, primarily because of the surfing. However I have three complaints, so Management pay attention :-) The gym is a nightmare!!! 35C inside on 15m2 with shitiiest equipment I have seen in a long time. My recommendation would be to do a proper gym, but if you don't have the money two ideas here: get freeweights for the outside area and lock it away at night in cages. That should work for less then 5k EUR. Or put aircon in the room, get three Bioforce stations and some functional training material. That sould make a fairly decent gym for less than 10k EUR. Other than that, mosquitos are a serious issue at that place which require more action everywhere. Last one is the coffee at breakfast. Please get decent machines, better a barrista :-)
