Stayed for 7 nights; golf and relaxation.
All staff and the management great except the sourest woman who served in the bar until 6pm and then breakfast. Terrible. Special thanks to waiter David who wore me out watching him.
Food: Breakfast part buffet and choice of simple cooked food such as eggs. Lots of fruit and yogurt and cereals. Thought it was great and open 'til 10:30am.
We had half-board so dinner was included. The starters were great and so were the sweets but the main courses, especially the specials, seemed to be pre-prepared and therefore over-cooked. Not good. Keep to the simple stuff such as chicken skewers etc and go up for a second go at the starters!!
Also so sadly lacking in staff who seem to disappear and they don't replenish the sweets so be quick.
Nice bar with varied music which ends too early.
Rooms were very good and immaculately attended to each day. There are suites but didn't get to have a look.
Our deal included 4 rounds of golf, 3 at Fuerteventura and 1 at Las Salinas. Las Salinas vastly superior to the hotel one which is a bit tired.
Also included was a one-time spa entry at the Sheraton which we used. It was good but basic.
Personally I'm a bit allergic to Sheratons and this was enhanced by the lunch we had at the pool restaurant. We had two Chef's Salads (Chief on the menu) and they were pitiful to say the least. 38 euros for 2 salads, one mineral water, one diet coke and an undrinkable coffee. The chicken in the salads was exactly like chicken nuggets you get in McDonalds (which is nearby) and the goat's cheese was canambert. Las Salinas was great for lunch and half the price.
Pool unheated which I always think is stupid.
All in all a great place which could be 5 star with a bit more attention to the food and a P45 for a certain person. ASM
