Reviewed April 6, 2014

Stayed here last year lovely hotel, food very good, staff friendly just what you would expect from a 4 star hotel EXCEPT No free Internet!!! I paid 25 euros ish for a weeks worth of Internet, was only allowed on one devise much to my daughters disappointment, I had to be available for work I think this is very poor seen as the Elba group in the area give the same standard of hotel and free Internet throughout their hotels

This is a lovely hotel, spotlessly clean in all areas. The staff in restaurant and bars excellent, couple of minor problems with reception staff tho Daniel was exceptionally helpful. The rooms were large with wonderful comfortable beds, plenty of room and well kept. Evening entertainment was really great with live entertainment every night. The animation team were hard working and talented. One drawback was noise from renovation work in Block 2, and resurfacing the pool area but it didn't really intrude too much, and it has to be done some time. The pool area was nearly finished when we left and it looks lovely. Food was excellent with plenty of choice. That was our 2nd visit and we will return.

Room Tip: We were happy in block 2, but there is work going on.

The hotel is really nice, the rooms are very spacious and the housekeepers do a wonderful job. There was work going on around the pool area which was very noisy at times. The check in was chaotic! We arrived before 3 so was booked in but couldn't be allocated our room until after 3 so was told to come back after that time, however we were given a complimentary welcome drink which I thought was a nice touch. When we did return to reception the queues were extremely long and a lot of people were complaining about the wait. Not a pleasant experience!! The restaurant was extremely busy and everyone seemed to be in a mad rush. Depending on what time you eat some of the tables aren' t set particularly at breakfast, the best time seems to be early at least that way you don't have to keep asking for cups and cutlery etc. All in all though we enjoyed the holiday and the hotel and would go back.

Reading all the reviews for the Barcelo Fuertevntura people either love it or hate it.. Having just returned from a 2 week visit I will try to give an opinon which will help you. Firstly, we stayed Half Board in a Superior Room in block 3 which was fine, all as described. The hotel itself is very, very large with in excess of 400 rooms. The grounds and pools are well maintained with ample sunbeds and easy access to the beach, which again was very clean and tidy.Having a superior room gave us free access to the Spa which was excellent with many refinements and was well worth visiting on cloudy days etc we also enjoyed free wi fi which on our visit was problem free.Now I come to the real issues which I consider is the problem here...Half Board and All Inclusive just dont mix.The aim of the hotel appears to reduce the overall headcount spend for all inclusive guests , this results in insufficient staffing levels.The queues at the bars and restaurant where frankly unacceptable. The standard of evening entertainment was generally poor, therefore guests go out of the hotel and spend their own money. Therefore for guests on a Half Board Basis the little extras things where not there,such as a pre -dinner drinks bar, a coffee / cocktail bar for after dinner. The proper dinner experience with wine served with due attention again was absent.In my opinion the overall Restaurant experience was poor, it was a functional food factory with no apparent leadership/management. The waiting staff looked over stretched and in a few cases unhelpful, with the motto " avoid eye contact at all cost ". It is shame because the location and the Hotel condition is not bad, but if you are looking for the little extras you have come to expect on holiday you wont find them here.

Room Tip: Taxi from airport

We enjoyed our 4th week long trip to this Hotel 26th March to 2nd April 2014. Yet again, we thoroughly enjoyed our break there and have no hesitation in recommending it to friends and family.
We have always stayed at the 'quiet' end, but we find the Hotel and resort is quiet enough anyway, thats why we go. That, and the clean airy marble floored rooms with king sized comfy beds, the excellent variety of food catering for every taste, the well appointed pool and bar area ( currently undergoing rapid refurbishment) and the helpful and friendly staff.
We enjoyed one evening presentation in the theatre (The Lion King) put on by the energetic entertainment team, who also provided aquaerobics daily which we enjoyed too. The pool was so nice it was an effort to get out at times.
The weather was variable this year and windier than previous trips at this time of year but we did some touring around the island catching up with a fair variety of birds as usual (Egyptian vulture and Trumpeter finches for example and the endemic Fuerteventura stonechat found nowhere else in the world) and enjoying the dramatic rugged Martian-like scenery.
Only downsides for us this year included the Spa being fully booked and need to pay for safe key (had hoped that would be part of our AI package to be honest)
Otherwise there were no surprises, and we hope to go again next year, or gamble on going to one of t'other Islands

Room Tip: we always ask for a seaview room

2nd stay here. Stayed in block 2 on top floor not a sunny balcony. Restaurant very busy and chaotic at times, staff work very hard. Salvador, Ana and Orlando always had a smile and a word to say, maybe the others could learn from them. Food became a bit samey after a week and too much pork and veal. Pool area clean and plenty of sun loungers but pools too cold. Will be trying another hotel next time.
