“Southern Fuertaventura.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

Weve just got back from Play Calma and hotel Morasol Atlantico,I wont repeat what others have said but there are a couple of comments,,,,this Hotel is excellent in all respects but two,,a,bar prices are exorbitant,,ie,2 Arahucas(light golden rum)and lemon 10euros,,you can by a bottle in the on site Spar for 9euros!!!its made in Grand Canaria!!!.Gordons and tonic9euros!!!!thats dearer than the bar on the QE2!!!!!and VAT here is only 5%!!,,ok enough said.,b,The buffet dinner is truly awfull for 13,50 euros per,.and they serv ,,Panga as there fish dish and are proud of it!!(read internet report on this fish)this fish by the way is now banned in Spanish schools because of its toxic content.
Coata Calma itself is a double edged sword,,,yes the playas are faboulas,clean,flat(safe for children)no undercurrent etc,and stretch for miles and miles,bed chairs priced at 4euros per.but Costa calma has no Paseo maritima(beach promanade)which means no nice beach front walk way!!pretty dam strange this,in fact we had difficulty thinking of another tourist resort without one!!,and means this ,theres literally nohwere to go of an evening and enjoy a nice walk along the front, choosing your place to dine or sit, or drink etc.Costa calma has no front,,,just a series of entry steps leading onto the beach,of which none are suitable for invalides,old people will struggle, as will small children,,,buggys and wheal chairs are not catered for any where.There is a real derth of bars and restauraunts,and what there is, is overpriced German eating houses and a few pizza houses,there are a couple of gems which ill come to but I have to say apart from the beach, Costa Calma has nothing going for it!!!.
The gems.
An Italian called Ristorante Pizzeria,,this is in front of the suremarket,Max cop,,,near the African market(open wednesday)excellent quality(you can watch the chef twirling the pizza base)and very reasonable priced,fresh pasta with a mouth watering variety off sauces.also try the Spanish cafe on the right as you walk in towards the super,,,for breakfast rolls(bocadillos) try the bacon and fried egg,,hmmmm!! unfortunatly thats about it for Costa Calma,,,try going back up the road to Lajitas and a restaraunt on the front calle Ramon,,great fresh fish and grilled meats again more normal prices .The only other place in the south worth a mention is Morro de Jable old town,,,again make your way through the town down to the front(follow your nose).You will find a number of fresh fish restaraunts and grills all with sea views etc.
Trips out,
DrIve back to the wind vanes round about and take the road to Pajara,this takes you first over the desert and then after you pass by La Pared(the wall)(dont bother a visit)you go through the most amazing terrain in fact were you to see Lawrance of Arabia and a group of Bedu come over the hills you would not be shocked,
Take the road down to Ajui and visit the caves or just sit and have some local cheese and a half bottle of Ribera,,,,,soak it all up because this beach is where the Spanish first landed and made there way in land, the walk is just around the corner and a tourist info thingy on the beach gives all the info on this walk.
A must see is Pajara(bird)a more traditional style village with an amazing church in the middle,now this church has an authentic entrance built by masons just back from south America in about 1701,,and if you look closely you can see Inca chieftans depicted!!!,,,ok I admitt we had just watched a documentary on Canarian TV the night before about this church!!!!,loverly cafe in front of the church under the shade of some huge trees,,,,try the crepes!!delish.
And Ime afraid thats about it for southern Fuertaventura,,,absolutly nothing to compare with Coralejjo in the north,now I realise that one mans meat can be anothers poison but the lack of amenities,attractions,etc,means this,,,if for what ever reason the beaches are"hors de combat" bad wheather,very high winds(very likely) etc there is nothing to do and nowhere to go!!!!!.

Room Tip: Top aprtmnt with views sun almost all day on terrazza.

This is a very nice and quiet apart-hotel. The service in the reception, the bars, in fact all areas was excellent. The pool area is very quiet and peacefull because most of the other guests prefered to go to the beach every day, which is very close.
There were very few british people there, most of the guests were German and scandinavian.

Room Tip: The rooms on the top floor were the best I think.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2010

We stayed at this hotel for a week at the beginning of September. The day we checked in, we arrived very late - I phoned at about 9pm to let reception know and the employee, Anne, was not only lovely, but also gave us suggestions about where to get off with the bus and how to get from the bus stop to the hotel (she suggested a taxi at night).
Admittedly the town doesn't have many attractions or places to go compared to the nearby Jandia but the hotel was a 1 minute walk from the beach and we got the promised apartment with sea view as well.

We went self-catering for this holiday and the hotel has its own supermarket which is really handy. There is also a bigger supermarket up the road in a shopping centre which is open for longer and also on Sundays. The kitchen was furnished for 2 people and had two electric stoves, a toaster and a filter coffee maker (no kettle). One evening we decided to try the hotel restaurant and felt that it was maybe slightly overpriced for the choice of foods offered. The service was excellent but foods at the buffet were not labeled and the meat wasn't cooked very well - also we found on two occasions that the hotel bar was out of ice cream - and this is about twice as expensive as buying the same ice cream from the supermarket, which makes little sense!

The only things I found wrong with it is that while free Wi-fi is listed as a feature this was not actually available and that some of the staff speak little or no English while others do.
Overall I would definitely go there again, it was good value if you're a budget traveller and not someone who expects a luxury experience.

Have stayed there in beginning of March. 5 min from the beach Costa Calma, quite nice and long. A lot of place to lay down, as Germans mostly walk near the ocean but neither swim nor have sun bath. It is very nice that Morasol is almost in the end of the beach, not too close to big hotels. Water was a bit cold but it was possible to swim with pleasure ~ +20-22. Morasol consists of 2 parts Morasol - older part a bit closer to the sea but territory is smaller and across the road Morasol Atlantico with restaurant and reception. Both have swimming pool. Our appartment had 2 rooms (bedroom) and living room-kitchen. Kitchen is quite nice with all necessary stuff (pans, pots, toaster). There is a small tv (officially costs ~10 euro per week). Good cleaning is also an advantage (5 times a week). There is very nice shop located in premises of hotel, where were buying food, however there was no fresh fish or meat but there were excellent salami and jamon. We had appartment on the groung floor with partial but nice sea view and terrace where we were eating and having sun bath (there are plastic chairs, tables, chaise long). Reception is friendly and helpfull but works according to timetable. It looks like 95% of visitors are older Germans but they are usually nice. We've paid 714 euro (for 2 persons) for a week with flight and transfer from Dusseldorf, I think it was worth it.

  • Liked — 5 min to the beach, good appartments.
  • Disliked — Timetable of reception (reception itself is very good), computer for internet access.
