i finally got to stay at el caleton .... in apartment 7. The many good things first ...
The apartment is well equiped, but most importnatly ... ideally located. Right on the beautiful beaches of El Cotillo. Alan the manager is very helpful, when required. Our airport transport was sorted and the staff were very accommodating with us because we had a late afternoon flight home. Margaret, too, was lovely.
The not so good bits ....... our key was not left for us, as arranged, when we arrived, so we had to hang around for 45 mins. If you can't bear cockroaches, I would stay away from El Caleton (or at least no.7). We were killing, or finding dead, between 4 and 6 large adults a day.
If you don't have a hire car, or similar, the apartments are a long way from everything except the one restaurant. I didn't realise what a pain this would be. My fault. It's a long way (30 min walk) to bring groceries etc.
Would I go again ? ..... Yes deffo.... but only with use of a car.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Uniquely positioned self-catering accommodation in the heart of the famous lagoon beaches, just north of the old fishing village of El Cotillo in the un-touristy northwest of Fuerteventura. Guests can walk directly from the accommodation onto a white-sand beach with a safe, clear, tidal lagoon, ideal for lazy days swimming and soaking up the sun. Just like being on a desert island with a few mod cons! ... more less
