“A very nice resort with multiple sport facilities”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2011

Location: built on a ocean shore in an isolated valley. 1km to a small fishing village. 4.5km to a bigger city. Big number of running tracks, mountain & road bike paths around. No other hotels within walking distance. Perfect for sport activities and relax.

Hotel: clean & well maintained; friendly staff.

Facilities & program: great place for active holiday. Free access to multiple group activities (running, mountain trips, football, volleyball, aerobic, step, etc.) & big gym. Cheap access to a good 50m swimming pool (2 Euro/hour). Mountain bike and road bike rentals available, but somehow expensive (again: splendid tracks for mountain and road bikes). Full size indoor basketball court under construction. The only problem I found is inadequate air condition in the gym. It's hot there. Much too hot.

Food: good breakfast buffet and very good evening buffet. Broad selection, fine quality, good variety.

This place has great facilities if you want a fitness filled holiday, there are classes on almost all day of every day which are free to attend. It is also a great place if you just want to relax by the pool in the sunshine, the only down side is that the sun loungers aren't the most comfortable!! It is great value with very spacious rooms and very comfy beds. We booked half board and were very impressed with the variety and quality of food. All round a great place for a trip away.

Seems it has changed name to Playitas Aparthotel. Great training facilities and a good atmosphere. Clean place with good food (actually much better than in December 2009). A nice place for children and people that want a carm vacation.

We recently stayed at the Bahia Grande aparthotel. This is part of the playitas resort which consists of a hotel (Cala del Sol), villas and apartments. The shop that supplies the hotel is reasonably priced and well stocked. They consistently serve fresh bread, croissants, pain au chocolat etc.

The rooms are spacious and clean. The beds are very comfortable but the only downside as with most places the TV has only 1 completely English speaking channe (BBC World News).

The restaurants on site are OK. The Spanish restaurant sells good paella but the Italian needs improving.

The pool area is large and has many sun loungers. The beach is a 30 sec walk away and is secluded.

In the neighbouring village of las playitas there is a fantastic restaurant called El Poril. We'd highly recommend the mussels and fish of the day. I had the steak which was lovely and for only 12€ you can't complain.

The sports facilities are great. The gym is great and there is a great selection of classes to do such as aerobics, spin and step. Some things are free with your stay but others require a fee or deposit but the reception staff always help you with any enquiries you have.

Overall we had a fantastic and relaxing time.

Don't trust what is said below! I can assure you, our stay at this hotel was amazing.
- Fantastic staff who responded to every request , whithin minutes.
- Very comfortable beds/rooms (spacious).
- The waterslide offers a lot of fun
- The beach just a quick walk away
- Exceptionaly clean
- Fantastic pool with jacuzzi, waves...
- A number of sport activities in groups worth trying (e.g water aerobics, salsa...)
- Excellent food in the neighbouring village *
- The value is very good in the city of Gran Tarajal, just a few minutes away in bus. It's not a touristic place which can explain the cheap prices (I bought beautiful pair of shoes there for under 10 euros).

The bad stuff...
- I wouldn't recommend this for anyone in search of bars and discos.
- The food quality is very poor at the hotel's restaurants.
This hotel is perfect for families and athlets. If you shop outside the hotel, you will be surprised how much you can get for your money.

VERY IMPORTANT PLEASE READ!!!!

By accident, we discovered a fantasic restaurant in the small village beside the hotel. Its name is EL TORIL, I think, and the food was amazing. All kinds of fish are at the menu, and also a beautiful sirloin steak for only 10 euros. This was the best I've ate on a vacation. The owner was incredibly nice. He gave us a bottle of expensive balsamic, and also the recipe for his wife's delicious cheese dessert. If you want to eat well, go there. It's practicaly undiscovered by the tourists, only the spanish go there.

HOW TO REACH IT: Follow the beach promenade until you reach las playitas and go all the way to the end. Turn left, by the kiosk, and continue. You'll see a supermarket( by the way with excellent things), and if you look to the right, a little up, you'll see a heineken sign. It's there. Get there and get in to the restaurant.

If you want more advice just contact me from this website.

Bahia Grande has excellent sport facilities with fitness, cycling and swimming (olympic) ranking very high. Unfortunately too few tennis courts and absence of other facilities like squach and athletic limit the possibilities.
The Bahia Grande has excellent none competitive swimming pools with good space and enough sunchairs.
Bahia Grand is a place for families with kids or sports seeking folk.
The biggest mistakes at Bahia Grand is the reduced offer of restaurants in form of a buffet, one Spanish and one Italian. The quality of the buffet restaurant is good at breakfest and awful in the evening (closed for lunch). The pool part offers unhealthy and low quality pizza and burgers (no fruit option available), which should be avoided. The Spanish and Italian restaurants were merged into one during our stay and the menu options are just to few for a 2 week stay. It is a questionmark, if they would qualify for a 4 star hotel.
On top of the relative good sport facilities it must be noted that the kids loved the stay, the activities and the parents found the price level at Bahia Grande competitive given the level of quality.
Fuerteventura has very little to offer next to the sea, wind and goats. However try to climb the mountain behind Bahia Grand and walk (4km) to Gran Tarajal. It can be done within 1.05 hours of people from a country with no mountains. Make use of the competencies of Deep Sea diving at Playitas and do some boat diving trips or first experience dives. Try the Subcat (u-boot) from Jardia. Did the jeep safari with Discovery and can not recommend as the knowledge level about the Island’s evolvement (e.g. our chauffeur could not speak English, German or French, but he was nice and kind) matches that of turist brochures and the ecology is the same, same and same...
So do Playits because of the sports and kids will enjoy, but do not expect 4 star level.

We went to this hotel a couple of years ago and thought it was wonderful so we returned its not so much that the hotel isn't good but it seems to have lost something that made it perfect. I think it was to do with the start of the holiday were we got to the hotel and as we had booked 1/2 board and it was quite late we had to rush and find were the meal was served. last trip it had been in a restraunant just along from our hotel but even though the lady on reception did show us on a map we didn't understand that it was now in the served in the nect hotel along (still in the hotel complex). So we ended up in the wrong place and had to pay for our meal the first night which totally stress me out.
Next morning we made it to the right place to breakfast and we tried to perk up abit even though the walk to breakfast was a touch futher than it had been on our prevous visit and breakfast wasn't so bad. The good mood of the day evaporated when we went in for tea as we relised instead of a resturant of the previous trip half board was now a self serve buffet which would have still have been o.k. value if the food was fine husband and daughter had uneatable chicken I had something called white fish instead of the lovely speical fish meals I'd so enjoyed last time. Then we became aware of the real problem with the half board option the Flies that were crawling on the truely delicious looking pudding luckily the ice cream was in a freezer therefore covered and if my darling daughters nose crinkled and she couldn't bring herself to eat ice cream that the serving spoon had been used by entire buffy with washes in still water between flavours it was copeable with. The panic that set in to my brain at the thought of finding an evening meal out everynight on my badly planned hoilday buget was not what I expected so we had to toughen up and get to tea early in the vague hope that the flies hadn't jumped on to the actual hot food. Touch wood we didn't get ill so must have been a good policy but as I say meals not a delight and quite stressful. The hotels atmosphere seems to have drifted away from family holidays and more towards group events. Very good Aba tribute band there one night and sports very good there just don't eat there.
