This was a very nice hotel - good standard. Comfortable room. Well appointed. Usual problem in Europe with Wi Fi, but to their credit they did sort it mid-way through our weeks stay. Meanwhile they provided a direct link cable. Internet connection in Europe (yes I know the Canaries are not strictly Europe!)still not of UK, US or Far East Standard.
Although there was a beach sea swimming is not ideal. Apart from the fact that we went in early November there are a lot of rocks, quite rough surf and fairly strong currents. A 10 minute walk gets you to some reasonable swimming beaches.
The food was a very good standard indeed. We went half board and they really made an effort with the buffet. Different every night and to a very good standard. We did go into the town (A 5 Euro Taxi Drive) for one meal - and there are plenty of restaurants.
We also ate in one of the speciality restaurants in the hotel. Even with our allowance it wasn't cheap - but it was really excellent. We eat in the Japanese Restaurant.
Fuerteventura is well named (Strong Winds!) But the hotel had every amenity to ensure you were sheltered from it.
There are plenty of good walks around - but the scenery is more Lawrence of Arabia than Kew gardens! Plenty of sand dunes! If you like Surfing, Para-surfing, wind surfing, kite flying or sand yachting this is the place for you! We didn't hire a car and stayed around Corralejo as we just wanted to chill out for a week. But I guess car hire would be well worthwhile to explore a bit more.
Without doubt the staff in this hotel were a breed apart. From the chambermaids to the gardeners to the bar staff, in the restaurants and at reception you were made so welcome by such pleasant people. Not over the top, just nice and nothing was too much trouble. My congratulations to the management and the staff have every right to be proud.
A lovely weeks rest in an otherwise hectic life!
