Just back from two week break at EC.
Our trip was picked following reviews on TA and the price we found. Having read some reviews was a little apprehensive re certain aspects such as sunbeds, the low flying aircraft and the food but in reality we should not have been concerned. The hotel is a good quality 4 star with many facilities including tennis, volleyball and for the footballers, football at least three times per week. There is also a lovely beach just outside the rear gate.
In regards to the sunbeds they are locked and you need to be ready to get one if you want one but this is no different than any other resort or hotel at the height of the season so don't complain just get up if you really want one. The food is very good quality and well cooked and anyone who moans is being over fussy it is mass catering for nearly 800 people and will be slightly repetitive but is very tasty.
The serving staff were all very nice and cheerful and previous reviews that were negative may have been the exception and not the rule.
The room was very nice, modern and clean with a good sized bathroom, the beds are slightly firm but as I like a harder bed I was very comfy.
The Animacion team are absolutely fantastic and work so very hard at making sure everyone has a good holiday, they all strike a good balance between trying to get people involved with activities, which are varied and good fun, and allowing people space to just relax, special thanks to Christopher, Nicola, Devora, Maggie, Roxanne, Julian, Eli, Garance, Stephen and Fabian for making us all feel like special guests even though they had hundreds of other guests to also entertain.
The evening entertainment is quite good and the Animacion team put in a lot of effort to produce an entertaining show though when shown in convention centre it loses a little atmosphere.
Other posts mention the lack of other options to the shows and I agree some form of entertainment in the lobby bar like some karaoke or similar might help.
Overall we had a great time at EC and would def recommend this hotel to anyone thinking of holidaying in Fuerteventura.
