“Excellent - very nearly”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

Booked the Fuentepark through Travel Republic on the basis of both cost and TripAdvisor reviews. Great to report that in this instance the positive reviews can be believed. As there were four of us travelling (Mum and Dad, and two teenage girls) we needed two apartments so could make the most of both of them - the girls' room was just behind reception and received sunshine on the balcony all day, and was a lovely place for us all to have lunch overlooking the pool. We were initially disappointed that our room was on the ground floor, but we later actually decided this was an advantage as we got a larger terrace and more direct access to the sun. As most other people have commented, the reception staff are great - and very friendly. Special mention in this respect for both Laura and Christina - thanks for your help! The only reason I'm only giving a four star review, instead of five, is for two things. Firstly, for the first week we were there, the weather was unseasonably cool - not of course the hotel's doing - but we felt the large supposedly heated pool could have been made a bit more inviting. On enquiring we were told that the temperature is kept between 20 and 24 degrees, which was not enough when the weather was dodgy. Even when the weather warmed up, a couple more degrees would have made the pool more welcoming. Secondly, as mentioned by others, some of the apartments could do with some major TLC to refresh peeling paint, fix sticky doors, bunged up shower outlet and such like. This was a fairly minor complaint as the apartments are comfortable, large and well equipped, and none of us would have any hesitation in returning. The positives though far outweigh the bad points. Just a few: 1) The location of the apartments in Corralejo is brilliant, central in town but up a quiet side street, and the main strip just a few steps away. 2) The free Wi-Fi extended to our room. 3) The maid service was very good, with plenty of clean towels and sheets. 4) Nice beach at the end of the road, for those who don't wish to travel to the huge dunes beach. 5) Cycle hire convenient and smoothly arranged. 6) Enough sun beds around the pool (even if some of them could do with replacing very soon). All in all, a lovely place - believe us!

Stayed here for the 2nd time in the last week in February. As previous reviews point out, the accommodation is basic, and yes, so things could do with some TLC. But overall you can't complain. Plus points for us were the location in the centre of town but not too noisy. The double bed was a big draw too. The pool bar serves some nice and cheap snacks for breakfasts and lunches. This visit we also received 2 bottles of wine. One for our return visit, and another to celebrate my birthday. We thought this was a lovely touch, from a very friendly and accommodating hotel.

Room Tip: Try to get the bock directly behind reception as these see the sun all day.

We have just returned from a week in Corrralejo staying at Fuentepark. The apartment was well furnished and had everything we needed. It is a little tired in places but extremely clean. The location was excellent being a 30 second walk from the main street in the town. It had a supermarket on the corner which made it extremely easy to pop out for milk and fresh bread in the mornings if you didn't fancy strolling down to the beach for breakfast which is a taxing 3 minute walk!!!! If you do venture out we would recommend the Wikki - great eggs and freshly squeezed orange juice.
The real positives about this place are the staff. They really went the extra mile to ensure we had a great stay. Lots of useful information about the area and when asked - rather than pushing tours.... and when we did have a problem with our hire car (hired at the airport not through the hotel) the lovely receptionist tried to help us by calling the hire company for us. At the end of our stay we had a late flight home, but unfortunately we could not extent our check out time due to a large group arriving, but another lovely receptionist allowed us to return to the hotel after our day at the beach, shower in one of the room that had been cleaned and then arranged for the bathroom to be re-cleaned at no additional charge!!! Outstanding!!!!
The only negative comment we can make about out stay has nothing to do with the hotel, but should be noted by all those hiring cars on the island. There is a major problem with hub cap theft. Look around when you arrive and you will see that many cars do not have any. God knows what the thieves do with all of them!!!! If you hire a car with hub caps that can easily be removed take them off. If you do not and they are stolen your hire company will charge an admin fee (in our company's case - 50 euros) even if you take out extra insurance - which we did!!. We hired a car for £97 but with the extra insurance and then the admin fee it cost us £255!!!!!!! Theft of hub caps is wide spread but the hire companies do not warn you, so beware!!!!

Room Tip: If you have young children you might want to ask for a room on the side furthest from the main road...

We had a lovely time in this hotel. We stayed for 8 nights in total and we couldn't fault it. Staff were courteous and helpful. Room service was very good. Apartments were clean and spacious, we couldn't find each other in the bed it was so big! Very central location. We will be back! Eddie & Mae

On our last day at this hotel. Our apartment was part of three for our family and despite asking for ones adjacent to reception via email, we were given north facing ones which never had the sun once throughout the day or evening. Always sunbeds available but again this could be down to the cloudy weather nearly all week. The pool was pretty cold and didn't appear to get cleaned very often as there was always leaves and debris on the bottom. Pool bar was well priced with lovely coffee for only €1:50. The location for main town Corralejo is very good with just a 100 metre walk to the main strip. There was no children entertainment with only your typical ropey Spanish outdoor pool table. The rooms were well sized and although a bit tired were clean and comfortable. Shower was great! All in all not a bad place to stay just disappointed with the sun free balcony and I may be a bit harsh because the weather wasn't that great for our stay and I know I shouldn't blame the hotel! I would recommend and would return with a guaranteed apartment location.

Room Tip: Email and then follow up with confirmation. We just accepted they would sort it out for us!

We stayed in October 2013. Good sized apartment furnishing ok and a nice ground floor outdoor space. The pool was very big - which was a bonus. The position was good - quiet but central. Our only complaint was it got quite noisy during the day as the owners were refurbishing a nearby apartment.

I had researched hotels in Corralejo on tripadvisor before booking and chose Fuentepark apartments accordingly.I was not disappointed. I totally agree with the majority of comments.The apartments may be considered rather dated but this didn't detract from our enjoyment of our stay at Fuentepark. There is ample storage space in the huge wardrobe and the fridge, as reported by so many, is vast.Our apartment was thoroughly cleaned every day except Friday and Sunday. Towels and bed linen were changed regularly.I particularly liked the large walk-in shower in the bathroom. Due to the arid conditions on the island I was concerned that I had to run the hot water taps for a while before the hot water appeared.I spoke to an ex -pat about this and, apparently, grey water is recycled and used by farmers for irrigation. Again, as already reported, the close proximity of these apartments to shops bars and restaurants make Fuentepark an ideal choice.It is all peace and quiet within the confines of the apartments, pool area and gardens but a 5 minute stroll takes you into town where there are dozens of places to eat and plenty of bars.I thought the Spa supermarket, 3 minutes further up the road than Hippadinos supermarket, had more choice and their bread was certainly nicer.And finally to the staff on reception. I don't think I've ever stayed anywhere where I can say the entire hotel reception staff were excellent. Here, without exeption, they were brilliant.They were always friendly, polite
and spoke fluent Enlish and other languages too . We decided to hire a car on a morning when it appeared overcast( it became sunny by midday) and this was quickly organised for us by reception.It was cheaper than expected and, as Fuerteventura has very smooth
main roads and relatively no traffic, driving around was a good experience. We heard the reception staff deal with all the guests in the same courteous manner.So without hesitation I would recommend staying here.
Suggestion: Each apartment has a plastic clothes airer for drying towels etc. Pack a few clothes pegs as it can get very breezy and we noticed, on some patois, clothes had blown down.

Dear client,

Thank you very much for your lovely comments and as well the most sincere thank you from the reception team for your kind words as these comments go a long way to keep the team highly motivated and appreciated.

There´s a widespread concern amongst all inhabitants of the isle with the environment and this has also been taken to Fuentepark. Apart from recycling water, we have recycling containers all around the complex so we can all contribute with this matter.

All in all we are very glad you enjoyed your stay and we would be very happy welcoming you here in the future!

Thank you
Kind regards,

Margarita Roca
