“Excellent Location and Resort”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2010

Just returned form a 10 night stay at the Sunrise Jandia Resort and had a fantastic holiday. Not one for writing review's but the resort is wonderful. It is very German/Spanish but the beaches are the best I have seen and that the sea is clear blue. The Sunrise jandia has a excellent position in the resort and would recommend to pay the extra for a sea view room as the view's are stunning. Only slight downside is the food we stayed all inclusive for 10 nights and got a bit bored of the variety but the food is very well cooked and fresh but mostly the same everyday. They have fresh fish/meat but always rice/potato/pasta and there's only so much you can eat.
The room's might need a slight re-furb and I'm quite fussy but I found them clean and the maid's were very good.
I would recommend theis to family and friend's and the resort of Jandia is worth a visit. The accommodation was good/friendly and the pool's are nice for the children.

A bit late writing but had to come back to it.
We had an apartment, all in, very spacious with fully private balcony and a sea view. Used to pull the Couch/beds out from the living room during the day to sun bathe. Happy days.
The restaurant was fantastic, strained belts, not for the weight conscious.
Walk across the road to the best beach in Europe.
The fattest, laziest, most indulgent, relaxing, chill out holiday ever.
The staff have an obvious policy of greeting every guest. It works. Had a permanent smile across my face.
I always hire a car. This time I was upgraded to a 1.9TDI Ibiza which was a hoot on Fuertas roads. But had such a lazy holiday in the Jandia resort that I only burned €12 and most of that was up and down to the airport. How bad is that?
Bliss!
Thank you Sunrise Jandia resort.

Oh! Watch the pool. Its a long stretch of depth if your not used to it.

I have just returned from a weeks holiday to the Sunrise Jandia Resort and wanted to write a review as the others on this page were so helpful in my decision to book.

We have been to Fuertventura over Christmas for the past two years staying in Calleta as it was nice and close to the airport and we didn't dare travel any further with two young children! We took the plunge and went for Jandia this year and it was our best visit to date. Yes, the onward journy of 1 hour 30 minutes was a bit draining following the flight, but when we got there we realised it was well worth it!

The hotel boasts a large complex with fresh and comfortable areas, both bars and restaurants where staff were friendly and welcoming. The main asset for us was the large heated swimming pool (There are three and from what we could make out this one was the only heated one) as the first day we arrived we were stuck with cloud, and even though it was still warm it was not beach weather - so the pool proved invaluable.

The pool was 1m80 deep and there was no childrens area, which may prove a problem for some. Luckily for us, although only being 3 and 5, our children can swim, but I must admit I would not have wanted them in there if they couldn't. Another favourable point was that due to the time of year we would sometimes be the only people in the pool, most of the other visitors were there for the sun and spent most of their time on the loungers around the pool. There were many sunbeds and a whole lot more on the roof terrace also so there was plenty of room for everyone but I can see it getting busy in peak season.

The rooms were clean and comfortable. It wasn't the best decor and maybe a little more room for the 4 of us would have been better, but it was definitely not something to spoil the holiday. The rooms were cleaned regularly, clean towels, they even did our washing up daily! We were lucky to have an apartment close to the restaurant and pool, but we could have been placed on another floor, and as I said it boasts a large resort, which has many many steps. There were lots of older couples who struggled getting around due to the steps.

We went self catering but decided to go for the all inclusive breakfast each morning which was lovely. Plenty of choice, fab food, good service. I couldn't comment on lunch and dinner as we ate out.

There was a small shop selling gifts along with the essentials - bread, water, milk, etc and we also made use of the gym and playroom which included air hockey, table tennis and pool etc

The beach was fantastic - again, maybe it was due to the time of year but it was empty. The surf is quite rough, but there were lifeguards on duty everyday. The current was strong but my kids loved it and it was so beautifully blue. Lots of surfers which was fun for them to watch and they even tried body boarding! Be warned that the beach is heavily frequented by older nudist couples!

A five minute walk in the direction of the 'strip' we found lots of restaurants where, even though the exchange rate is pitiful, good value food of a large selection could be found. We tried a few but happily returned to 'La Isla' night after night due to the friendly staff, excellent food and value. Were were paying around 40 euros for the four of us with plenty of alcohol to wash down the fillet steak and delicious pasta dishes.

All in all the week flew by and we were all sad to leave. I will definitely be booking up to go again next year and would recommend the resort and hotel for a value for money, family holiday.

The rooms were clean but were in serious need of updating. There were scuffs on the white walls. The furniture and bedding was from 1980's. There were tiles that had been chipped and cracked in the bathroom and a bodge job done on them. I had asked for a quiet room as had driven down the Island in 4 hours and needed a room just for 1 night. They gave me a room facing the pool and could hear the entertainment from the bar area, instead of a garden view that I'd booked. I couldn't be bothered to change rooms as I was so tired. My earplugs did the trick! The communal areas definately, big, bright, airy and clean. Makes a difference to a holiday.
1 female staff member from reception and a few at dinner were friendly and polite. Very welcoming.
The hotel is full of older german tourists. Didn't bother me but some people prefer to be surrounded by English speaking guests.

We have just returned from a fantastic, all-inclusive week at the Sunrise Jandia Resort in Fuerteventura.

When planning our holiday we used Trip Advisor, so we thought we'd give some feedback.

The hotel had excellent reviews and we weren't disappointed - although of course there were always going to be one or two things that were not that great. So, here's our thoughts:

Bad points:

* Transfer distance from airport - not the hotel's fault of course, but it is a long way from the airport (90 minutes). It was baking hot when we arrived at 10.30pm and a trip in a minibus in our travelling clothes wasn't much fun. But its remoteness was an attractive reason for going there so you have to put up with the transfer to get the benefit.

* Air conditioning in bedrooms - not very good, but this was based on our expectation that it would be up to UK standard - a bit unrealistic. The room was hot at night but we managed to sleep well every night.

Good points:

* Food - superb choice at breakfast, lunch and dinner, even with one of us being a very fussy eater. Hot and cold food available on a self-serve buffet and snacks/drinks at the pool bar.

* Drinks - great selection of soft and local alcoholic drinks. Soft drinks were the real thing (Pepsi, 7-Up etc) and we can thoroughly recommend the sangria!

* Pool and facilities - there are two pools across the complex. We kept to the one near our room and it was clean, well maintained and open from 8am to 7pm. Plenty of loungers although it was low season so we could see competition being fierce in the middle of summer.

* Location - across the road was a stunning beach, there was a supermarket within five minutes walk one way and shops/bars/cafes within 10 minutes walk the other way. Plenty of choice for eating if you're not all-inclusive. And a great zoo next door with a show featuring audience participation - including alligator wrestling! If you buy a zoo ticket, it's valid for a week.

* Entertainment - or animation, as they call it. There was something on every evening and we went to a DJ night, a parrot show and a music variety show. There were also activities during the day and a kids' club. Most of the music was English and mainstream, which was amazing considering the guests were almost all German.

* Rooms - quite basic but perfectly adequate. Similar to UK Travelodge rooms but with a balcony - ideal for enjoying the cooler temperatures in the evening. Good shower and bath and regular room service. Only two English-speaking channels on the TV - CNN and Eurosport.

* Weather - Average temperature was 29 degrees Celsius (take high factor sun lotion as it's expensive in the shops over there) and it was sunny all week. Before we went everyone told us how windy it was in Fuerteventura but there was only a light breeze when we were there.

A few things to mention:

If you're eating in the restaurant in the evening, trousers are required (jeans are fine). The vast majority of guests are German (if you want English company then north of the island is better) but they were friendly enough and we enjoyed the peace and quiet.

The beach opposite is lovely but popular with nudists and you have to pay for the loungers - if you sit on them, the staff (not in the nude!) come for your money pretty quickly.

While the shopping centres contain what you need, don't expect them to be like the ones at home.

The Spanish like the Brits to have a go at the language (although they speak good English), so don't forget your 'holas', 'por favors' and 'gracias'!

All in all it was a brilliant, very relaxing week featuring plenty of food, drink and lounging by the pool and we'd definitely recommend it to people.

Adios!

we have just returned from a fortnights break at the sunrise jandia resort and have never felt so relaxed as when we where there. The hotel is really clean, the food is fantastic, there is always something for the kids such as pizza, chicken nuggets etc. Nothing is too much trouble for the team of pople whom work there. our room faced on to the beach over the road which is a very quiet road. if you are looking for a lively hotel then please do not go to sunrise jandia and for the kids the childrens club is hotel run and quite basic from 10.30-12.30 and then 3.00-5.00pm. also has kids disco at 8.30pm.
on a negative note, we where one of only 2 english families in the hotel and the rest is mainly german and spanish, had we not met up with a lovely dutch family, we would have been without decent conversation for the whole two weeks.
in summary, if you like peace and quiet and can put up with the germans for your stay then get booking as all else is spot on.
