Arrived in Fuerteventura, collected car and started on nearly a 2hr journey to the resort. Stopped at a Spar supermarket to buy groceries, and then continued to resort. On arrival, about 1630hrs, the Reception was closed, rung the bell and was greeted with a ‘telling off’ for being late. A great start to our holiday. After all the paperwork had been completed we were directed to our apartment No.47. We had requested a pool view, we got one of sorts, the swimming pool support wall. The apartment was spacious, as we tend to spend ourselves. Nice bathroom c/w shower, lounge / dining area and balcony. Anyway we settled in and had a nice buffet meal across the road for 16 euros each.
Plenty of sun lounges around the pool, we always seemed to get one when we wanted. Late afternoon till the evening the sauna was on and everyone appeared, sometimes you had to squeeze in. The pool was freezing though.
One day our shower lever broke but was soon repaired. We would stay here again although the only gripe was there was hardly had any hot water. We used to go over to the sauna area to use the showers there, like other residents did. We did complain about this but just got a shrug of the shoulders.
Used the local ‘Safari’ bar in evening, host & hostess greeted everyone and remembered your drink from the previous evening but always made sure that’s what you wanted. Spent New Years Eve in the bar, very good.
