visited this hotel 2010 and liked it had a chance for a extra holiday so took the opportunity due to a good deal through thomsons. hotel was as we remembered it there was some upgrading to the pool areas whilst we were there but it didn't interfere with our break. And the ground staff were constantly making sure the grass areas and poll areas were clean and tidy, weather was a bit indifferent but we had been allocated a lovely room ( thank you staff at the barcelo ) that had the afternoon sun ( when it came out ) but was protected from the breeze and therefore if we weren't on the sunloungers then the balcony was ideal. landed at hotel 1.pm with a bus full of fellow holiday makers and we were told we would have to wait for our room, and considering the group waiting to be allocated, we was in our room less than 20mins after entering the hotel, well done again to the staff. Meals were still very good and plenty of choice at breakfast and evening meals ( we were half board ) my criticism last visit was that lots of people walking about with cups full of hot water/tea/coffee ect , though there appeared to be more dispensers for coffee ect, and there was little time waiting at the machines , health and safety wise with children walking around I feelt this could be an accident waiting to happen , still would be happier with tea pots and coffee pots at the tables, however other than this comment dinning room and meals excellent. Nice to see the bars still sold premium beers like Voll Damm and San Miguel Especial great not that happy with the Tropical larger at the Taps.
All in all glad we came back and as we both have recently become grand parents and im sure once the little lads a bit bigger , this would be a great hotel to return to in the future Thanks again to the staff for a great week stay.

Room Tip: rooms over looking swimming pools have more sun and higher floors advisable.

We stayed here for a week of last minute sunshine in early January. We chose this hotel specifically because it had goodd trip advisor reviews and was a very short transfer from the main airport (Just 15 minutes). We were looking simply for sunshine and relaxation after a very busy Xmas / New Year and this fitted the brief perfectly. The hotel and rooms were immaculately clean, bedrooms very comfortable. The beds have nice linens and mattresses have memory foam toppers which were excellent. I was disappointed that the hotel hadn't received a request that I had mailed for a specific end room in order to be a quiet as possible. We changed room after night 1 and although reasonably quiet I suspect that was because most guests at this time of year were not having to holiday in school holidays! We stayed all inclusive, so were able to eat and drink throughout our stay. Only local drinks were included though. I was disappointed that despite all local drinks being included, some cocktails (made with local drink) attracted a supplement, and that bottled water in the room had to be paid for at €2.50 per small bottle. Advice to other travellers is to walk just about 200 yards from the hotel to buy 5 litres of water for €1.60. There are no extra a la carte restaurants here in the all inclusive deal. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are in a large buffet style diner. Food is very good, there is a chef station with grill, tuna steaks, veal, pork etc cooked to order. Fantastic Lavazzo coffee machine available at breakfast. This should be made available through the day. It isn't possible to sit after your evening meal and have coffee. If you want a snack or a light lunch there is a station near the pool bar open to all inclusive guests. This could be better i feel. Rather desperate never changing pizza, pasta offerings. It was for us a "does what it says on the tin" holiday. We would go back.

Having stayed at this hotel two years ago we enjoyed it again second time around.
We had a lovely room overlooking the sea and pool on the third floor .The choice of food was excellent catering for all tastes. Sometimes it could have been a little hotter .
The entertainment team were fabulous and work so hard and are really professional.The sketch one evening with the two "babies" was hilarious. Just simple clean fun.The waiter sevice in the theatre area is good. Just what you need for a great , relaxing holiday.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the pool are sunnier

I stayed at this hotel in August 2013 with my 15 year old twin sons. The complex was very nice and the location was excellent. Lovely for evening walks along the sea front. The crazy golf was also a hit with myself and the boys as were the tennis courts. Food was lovely and plenty of it. We had a ground floor apartment which was ok, but for the price I paid (3 adult prices) I have experienced better in Egypt and Rhodes... I shared the king size bed with one son and my other son had the double sofa bed, which creaked alot. Bearing in mind both boys are nearly 6ft. I paid adult prices and really would have preferred a room with the option of twin style beds?? Bathroom slightly dated too and the air conditioning was very poor and didn't ever really cool the room down... these are a few down points, but overall we had a pleasant holiday and met some lovely people who were also staying at the hotel. Entertainment was quite good for abroad.

The standard room was very spacious with kettle, hairdryer and toiletries provided. Staff were pleasant throughout. Dining room was massive but coped comfortably and the food catered for all tastes. Some buffets can be a bit jaded but the hotel provided great food and we can recommend the house wine (particularly the red) costing E10/bottle!
10 minute transfer from the airport was also good.

Room Tip: We requested a quiet room and were pleased to be in block 3 although it is a fair walk from the pool...

We spent 10 days Half-Board in Fuerteventura in the Barcelo Thalasso Spa. It was an excellent hotel with great facilities to keep you as busy as you wanted to be. The entertainment staff were polite and unobtrusive.
We were located adjacent to a large beach, harbour and shopping centre and we really enjoyed our stay. The hotel chain also had apartments and sister hotels nearby. The area was quiet and there was a selection of good shops and restaurants at hand.

Unfortunately it was our experience of the restaurant staff that let us down. Specifically they made the stay quite a challenge from -
1) arguing over giving out hot water, coffee and milk flasks at breakfast time - being rudely told that everything is in the buffet area. Most customers were all-inclusive but having these flasks was not a privilege.
2) a lack of customer care and keeping their eyes down instead of looking to see if anyone needed assistance, to hit and miss service to even get seated or have drinks orders taken in a timely manner. You never had the option of a second drink after the initial order!
3) At 8.30pm they started to routinely clear tables and set these out for breakfast - despite people entering for their evening meals. There was no evidence of a system in place to seat anyone.

It was difficult to understand why the service was poor as the hotel employed 2 supervisor-level staff who greeted you at the door but there was no one really in charge in any section of the restaurant.

The catering staff (serving/restocking) were great and responded warmly to being spoken to / asked questions in Spanish. This was the same experience of all other employees.

We didn't let this experience detract us from enjoying the hotel of the island.

Room Tip: Ask for a room closest to the Thalasso Spa building if you need peace & quiet as the main areas...
