We just came back from a week stay in this fantastic hotel and we couldn't be any happier 30/03/14. Food was amazing, accommodation clean and comfy and hotel guests were pleasure to be around. I don't know what a lot of people are talking about that this hotel should be avoided because it's French orientated. I say go there because it's French orientated!!! It's true that Brits are a minority, but that makes this hotel very unique and peaceful . I speak 4 languages and French is not one of them and yet my husband and I had the best time ever. We are a couple in our early 30 ties , who were looking for relaxation and entertainment without loud and obnoxious behaviour of the clientele and we found just the right place. French and German and even British ( because they are outnumbered) make it cultured and polite . Staff is friendly ,entertainment is fine (all in French ) , but you don't need much language to dance around and sing karaoke or watch Flamenco or listen to a duet playing guitar and singing, do you? It depends what you are looking for. If you want to spend the whole day by the pool and count to be entertained ,then you will most likely be disappointed . If you're looking to spend a quality time as a couple or a family and can be entertained by your time together then this is a place for you. We, however ,had a lot of fun with French entertainment . We are a couple who wants to sunbathe and explore. We rented a car ( recommend PayLess just on the corner from the hotel 75 euros for 3 days) and visited the whole of the island, and I mean all around it. It was breathtaking , especially the wild west side and El Golfo and Haria up north. Playa Blanca and Playa papagayo are amazing. Take a ferry to Fuerteventura from Playa Blanca it's only 20 mins. It was a very relaxing holiday. We go at least 3 times a year to different places with Thomson and after all havoc we normally encounter from loud and embarrassing Brits we finally found a place where manners and politeness took over. Also pool area is always empty so don't worry about finding sun beds. Location is amazing and as a tip a beautiful dark skinned girl behind the bar ( I think her name was Aerias, sorry if misspelt ) makes mean drinks, go to her if you can ;-)
