Me and my husband went for a week at the beginning of September. At that time, the resort seemed very quiet and we saw very few people at Biahiazul which meant we really did have a very relaxing time. This villa complex is absolutely wonderful. We went on our own but these villas would be great for groups of six friends too. For me personally, due to the layout of the villas, I wouldn't like it as a base for 3 couples but that is just due to how I like things and I am sure it would be fine for others. They are very spacious with everything you need in the kitchen area, what I found really helpful was the thoughfulness around coffee filters, washing up liquid etc, all those little things that you so often end out having to buy but only use tiny amounts of! Here, all those things were taken care of.
We booked through an agent of some kind and included a transfer from the airport with the costs. This turned into a farce and we had long delays for transfer waits etc. To anyone I would say, just get your flight and jump into a cab when you get to the airport - the cabs are plentiful and it costs about 40 Euros direct to Bahiazul from the airport.
The resort is very secure and the staff, all of them, simply cannot do enough for you. They really are a great bunch of people from reception, security gates and restautrant.
There is a restaurant facility on site which provides breakfast (this is included in your charges) and is a buffet style with everything you could possible think of from pancakes and waffles, fry ups, fruit salads, cold meants and cheeses etc etc. There is filter coffee available and it is one of the few 'machine' coffees that I have found that is actually good. For those (if like me) who really want a good coffee to start to the day, you can actually have it here. Breakfasts are served through until 11am everyday apart from Sunday.
There is also a bar and restaurant facility in the evening on the villa complex. We ate here on our first night, the setting and staff are lovely and they did bring numerous little extras to us as we ate and liquers afterwards but we found the food itself a little disappointing. Now, that needs to be qualified by the fact that on subsequent evenings out eating in town, we generally found the quality of local restaurants not very good. I'm not quite sure why as the produce available locally is good and varied. So, this restaurant in the complex is the same in terms of quality as others, I think it's just a Feurteventura thing.
After 3 nights eating out, we gave up and shopped at the local hypermarket (literally less than a ten miute walk away). We bought plenty of charcoal and giant prawns and steaks and other lovely goodies and then used the rooftop bar b q each night. This was sheer bliss, music of our choise, the jacuzzi warming up, the lit swimming pool glimmering below - really, really, lovely. If you need to refresh, read some books, relax and 're-boot' then this really is a wonderful villa to do it in.
The area of Fuerteventura itself is not that inspiring at all, we did find some nice bars to have a couple of drinks in the old part of the town, The Rogues Gallery, a quiet little bar run by a lovely English couple, The Blue Rock Bar, just around the corner from the Rogues Gallery is definitely one for finding out anything at all!
If you call reception from the villa, they will call a cab to come and pick you up at the villa, it is 4-5 euros right the way into town. Get taxis to take you to the end of town and then where you get out, just walk straight a head a few metres and you will arrive in the old part of town. Here at weekends there are band performances and lots of street performers entertaining those enjoying a drink in the bars, cafes and restaurants.
As I said at the beginning, these villas are great for relaxation with everything taken care of, if, in a sense, don't need anything from the place you are in, this is perfect but the town and island itself offers very little.
If the spa aspect is important to you, do check that it is open. When we arrived we were told it was closed for refurbishment. We didn't see any work being undertaken at the spa and I have a feeling it may have been more a case of not enough people there to make it worth having open.
If you are travelling with young children, you will need to supervise very carefully around the pool areas and I would suggest ensuring you have DVD's to play as TV in English is extremely limited!
