This is an excellent choice for those with young families, excellent villas with basic kitchen/bedroom/ separate living area and terrace with choice of self catering/BB/HB/AI. We opted for AI, food was excellent and definitely worth the money.

This is a perfect holiday resort for families with children. The hotel caters perfectly for little people, but would not suit adults only. There are three pool areas and there is a lovely promenade in front of the hotel accommodation which has really good safety entrance gates, thereby safeguarding the children. The beach is instantly available and provides safe playing areas.
Excellent resort for families with small children or teenagers.

Just returned from a one week easter holiday at Barcelo Castillo Beach. I found the accommodation above average, very clean, spacious and well maintained. Reception was extremely accommodating when we asked if friends who were to arrive later in the day could be allocated a room in the same block as ours (4000's). My only concern with the bungalows is doors closing, wardrobes opening and headboards banging could be heard all around the block! This didn't make for a peaceful nights sleep.

It was ever so quiet both on the complex and in resort. At times it felt a bit dull. Not really a hassle and bustle type of holiday.

Food and drink was acceptable. Good availability and choice at meal times and serve yourself drinks which I've never seen before at an all inclusive.

Would recommend staying here but take layers for on an evening cos when the sun goes down its freezing...I've since discovered that Fuerteventura is nick named windy Island.

Return visit to the hotel, we were not disappointed. Got great GF room as requested. Excellent facilities and close to both the beach and the town. Good selection of pools. Friendly and helpful staff.

We stayed self catering and our upstairs apartment in the 2100 bit was lovely,with two large well equipped balconies and an upgrade around 3 years ago. It was a quiet room, with a view of the beach.The flashy 5000 ones were beautiful, with a little bath/ hot tub on the terrace, but very on view to anyone who walked by.
The pools were clean and family friendly, they had only been redeveloped 2012-2013,but there were now a few tiles missing. However this place is ambitious, it spends on amenities, so no doubt this will soon be sorted.
The daily entertainment was fun, from beach volley ball to aqua aerobics. Thanks to Rocco and George.
We went out each evening so cannot comment on the night time entertainment.It was only a ten minute walk to some super restaurants.
The AI people I met said the drinks were good, but the food during the daytime was limited to burgers,hotdogs, pasta and salad.Their little boy loved pizza and this was not on offer.Drinks around the pool were in little plastic cups.
The resort had a relaxing vibe and overall it was 4 star. My only other gripe was the cleaning, towels were changed daily and the bin, but the rest of the apartment was left. There was a cockroach problem when we arrived the first evening because the cleaners had left the window open, but luckily left us some insect spray!We didn't really have to deal with them after that.
Overall thumbs up. I would return, but only SC or B&B.

We had a one week stay. They first placed us in bungalow 1048. Not the best to say the least as faced the road and reception. The Thomas Cook rep then managed to get us moved to 1024 (for an extra €30) A world away as faced the sea. We had never gone all inclusive before so not sure what to expect. This was very good. Breakfast, lunch & dinner provided a varied selection of good food. The only drawback that there was no all-inclusive quiet bar in the evening. There was only the show bar, but shows aren't our thing. There is a bar overlooking the sea but you have to pay for drinks. However the biggest draw-back was the local "town". Very Southend Abroad. Purpose made resort so no old town charm. So Barcelo is 4 out of 5, and Caleta is 1 at a push.
