As you are posting on the Fuerteventura forum, I will have to say Fuerteventura, having been to both, I will opt for Fuerte everytime, it is quieter, which is nice and the beaches are in my opinion, far better, you do get the "trade winds" though, but nothing better to keep you cool on a warm day.

We have also been to both islands a number of times over the years. Gran Canaria is a lot more commercialised and lively (particularly in Playa del Ingles) than Fuerteventura, so it depends what you are looking for. If you just want to chill out for a week I would recommend Fuerteventura, the beaches are better particulary in the south of the island (Jandia). Corralejo is also good with more nightlife.

Have a good time whichever island you choose!
