“Liked It And Would Return Again !!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 weeks ago

As our children are grown up, we decided to go on holiday with friends in the same position, to somewhere we'd not been before.
We chose Castillo Mar through reading reviews on Tripadvisor, and have to say we weren't disappointed.
The property we stayed in served our basic needs, ( No. 93 & No.94, are duplex type properties with a lounge / kitchen and toilet downstairs, with an upstairs bathroom, and one double bedroom with a balcony off it ), and is just half a minute from the communal pool, which, by the way, was freezing when you first get in, but, then your body adjusts to its temperature.
We travelled on the 30th March 2015, with Ryanair, and took a taxi from the airport which is only 10 minutes to Castillo Mar.
The sun was shining, and we had 10 days of warm, ( and sometimes hot ! ) weather.
Most mornings started off overcast though, and a hoodie, or jumper / cardigan was needed as the wind made it feel quite cool.
Most evenings, as the sun went down, you needed an extra layer to take off the chill.
Castillo Mar is so handy for everything around the locality.
Bars, shops and restaurants are just a few minutes walk away, as is the beach.
Places we would recommend to eat are the Hong Kong Chinese, ( 8.95 euros pp for a banquet ), Show Boat Chinese Buffet on a Wednesday and Saturday where you get 30% off, and wine is one for one ( ie but one bottle, get one free ). You can go up as many times as you want, and the food, in our experience, was great ! 34 euros for the 4 of us, including 2 bottles of wine !!
Arena Indian was OK, as was The Aberdeen Steakhouse, ( 3 courses for 8.95 euros, I ate a Prawn Cocktail, Fillet Steak with a Brandy & Mushroom Sauce, and a Chesecake for dessert ), but, our favourite place was The Fado Rock café, where we ate 3 nights out of 10.
The first night there, I had the best T-Bone steak I've ever eaten, ( 19 euros ), and the following 2 occasions I ate the ever tasty chefs special pasta dish, which is spaghettini cooked with prawns, garlic and mushrooms in a creamy sauce.....delicious !!
One thing I must advise is that you get in there before 8pm, as they are queueing at the door after then, which shows how popular the place is !!
If you want to eat breakfast out, there are many places to try from 2.50 euros upwards for a full English, but, we didn't try one till the last morning, at The Trafalgar. and it was very nice though !!
Some lovely drinking places too.
The Dog and Duck, opposite Castillo Mar, and underneath a hotel, ( 2 pints of Strongbow for 5 euros ).
The Kings Arms, just up the road from Castillo Mar on the corner, underneath the Dorado Suites Hotel, is great for Karaoke, ( Matt, Tracey and Caroline, the singing bar stewards, and hosts, along with the ever funny Scully, the karaoke joker........ be warned though, his language is choice, but inoffensive ). This is where we spent most of our evenings, along with trips up the road to Piero's Music Café where various themed music nights took place, and karaoke after 11pm. Difficult to get a seat most nights though.
Unfortunately, we suffered one bad evening at an eatery called Kobe Steakhouse, at the top of the town.
We were presented with bread and dips, ( the same as at The Fado Rock café ), and our order was taken quite swiftly.
However, our food was also presented quite quickly too, ( within about 10 - 15 minutes .
I ordered the T-Bone Steak, ( a full 1.1kilo of meat ), and asked for it to be cooked medium. The fillet part was edible, if a little chewy, but the other side was full of fat and gristle, and was very rare in the middle.......inedible.
My wife ordered Cajun Chicken....... to be honest, I'm not sure it was chicken they served her ?
Our friends ordered Steak and Chicken, and they weren't impressed either, leaving the majority of the food on their plates.
When the rude and abrupt waiter came to clear the table, and asked if everything was OK, we responded accordingly, and his remark was, "Oh, that's disappointing !"
Needless to say, we won't ever go there again, or recommend it to anyone either, ( may have been an off night ?.......... but, their attitude was dreadful !! ).
I can recommend a 25 minute bus trip to the capital, Puerto del Rosario for 2.90 euros per couple, and then a further 30 minute bus trip from there to Coralejo for about 3 - 4 euros, where the sand dunes are.
All in all, we had a very nice holiday in Caleta de Fuste, and will be going back again in the future at some point ?

Room Tip: The properties over looking the pool were in the number 80's I think ?

We stayed at 119 Castillo Mar and had a fantastic time. Great location 2 minute walk to the pool, 5 minute walk to the seafront and in close proximity to all local amenities. Fuerte Breaks did a great job of looking after us during our stay. Looking forward to our return trip to see the newly installed bathroom suite. Would definitely recommend.

Stayed at this apartment on 3 occasion, it is clean and well decorated, with two bathrooms, a well stocked kitchen, along with washing & ironing facilities. This couple with the Sky, wifi & DVD makes it a fab place to make a base from.

The apt has its own sheltered pool & is within two minutes from the bars & well stocked supermarket (its Spar) so lots of choice!

The beach & Promenade are within five minutes walk and there are some fantastic bars & restaurants to choose from as well.

Overall 119 is a lovely apartment and Calete De Fuste is a top resort to kick back and relax.

We spent 11 days at the complex in the duplex apartment which overlooked the pool which is a much better location than the ones for rent which are tucked away in the shade. The location is ideal there is a front and rear entrance which allows you access to the beach,seafront shops and bars all within a 5 minute walk. There is no need to hire a car unless you want to travel and explore the island as the airport is only a 15 euro 10 minute ride away. There are a quite a few apartments for rent and they are virtually all within £200 to £250 per week throughout the year. We spent most of our time relaxing around the pool which has been fenced in and supplied with a lot more sun beds than our last visit which meant you did not have to be up early to bag a bed. Most of the owners are British and a few stay for months at a time so there is always someone on the complex to help or advise of the best restaurants and places to go. All the apartments are two storey and all have a bedroom and balcony with a bathroom upstairs and a kitchen/diner with a toilet downstairs. Our's had been completely refurbished and was very clean with all you want for a relaxing break. With sunshine and an average temp of 25c and all facilities on the doorstep for up to four people for approx £35 per night you can't go wrong.

Room Tip: Look at the photos of the apartments location to ensure it faces the pool and if possible try to ren...

n arrival in the apartment there was a cockroach in the kitchen being eaten by ants, apart from this the place was clean but towels were old & some had holes in.
We didn't receive clean bedding or towels at all in the 2 week stay. Pool area was also a little run down, in my opinion the whole place needs a face lift. All in all the apartment was in a good location and fuerteventura is fantastic.
