Fantastic position with balcony overlooking the lagoons, simply beautiful. Apartment was superb, comfortable and well equipped. Generator was a bit of fun, suggest not leaving it too late in the evening to watch a film, you may well miss the end! El Cotillo was a little quiet, but I understand May is when the locals take their hols. Still, if... More

We returned this month to El Caleton after a gap of several years and I am happy to say that the setting is as idyllic as ever. El Cotillo has certainly developed meantime but El Caleton remains an oasis of peace right on the most beautiful beach and small sea bay. There has been much upgrading of the apartments with...

What a find! Just the most perfect peaceful place! Right on a beautiful lagoon. Stayed in apt 2 and booked again for next year and know it's a place will return over and over again. Weather perfect and swam in the safe lagoon every day. Short walk to lovely El Cotillo. Went with my best friend and made more. Wonderful!

Another fantastic week at number 8. This is our 4th visit to no 8 and each visit very magical. El Caleton is a little oasis, peaceful, beautiful lagoon and beach.

We have just returned from our second two week trip this year to No 9. As ever the magic of this little lagoon works very quickly on you. The apartment has perhaps the best views of all, with sunrise in the bedroom window and sunset over the balcony. If you want 5 star accommodation then don't come to El Caleton... More

If you want five star air conditioned luxury with English TV channels, then you won't find it here. What will find is a clean, well equiped, simply furnished apartment a few feet from one of the best beaches on the island.

We stayed at No.7 overlooking the trees and lagoon, though sadly the trees almost block the view of the lagoon and in the constant wind, sound like heavy rain lashing the building, but after a day or so of a two week stay, we got used to the sound and the semi obstructed view. It does mean you get to... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Uniquely positioned self-catering accommodation in the heart of the famous lagoon beaches, just north of the old fishing village of El Cotillo in the un-touristy northwest of Fuerteventura. Guests can walk directly from the accommodation onto a white-sand beach with a safe, clear, tidal lagoon, ideal for lazy days swimming and soaking up the sun. Just like being on a desert island with a few mod cons! ... more   less

“All the apartments except Nr. 3 have a sea view. We like the ground floor ones best with beach access direct through the garden.”

“Although this apartment technically is closest to the sea, the large palm trees do obscure a LOT of the best view and the only other window fro the second bedroom has a very tight, fixed, mozzy screen which sort of diffuses the otherwise good view, BUT it's still a better view than many of the other apartments, save for another second story apartment to the South of the building which really should have the best of all worlds. (Don't know the number) I gather some other apartments have a second back up power source to keep the fridges running even when the genny goes off.”
