First arrived to be book into our superior bungalow, which was 1108 on the sea front over the road, but was very disappointed this was certainly not 4 star superior.

The room was basic a run down old trolley with the tv on , no coffee table & bedroom was dark.
The terrace was over looked by the crazy golf & very windy.

After 3 nights we decided to ask at reception to upgrade , they showed us one of there deluxe junior suites which was another 35 euros a night. We decided it was worth it because of the jacuzzi bath of the terrace so took 5029.

The room was open plan with 2 single beds pushed together , a sofa plus 2 tvs . One in seating area & one in bedroom area.
Plus table & chairs but still no coffee table so big open space in room but no where to put anything down.

The cleaning of the room was not good , in our first room the was a big stain down the bathroom door inside would not even like to say what it looked like but was still there when we exchanged rooms.
The second room had foot prints on the inside of door & were still there when we left.

Wifi was not free which i cannot believe for a hotel claiming to be 4 star & if you wanted to pay was only avaliable in reception.

The food was ok but often cold & after a few days got very fed up with the same dishes day in day out.

Breakfast couldn't go wrong because could help yourself to full breakfast or toast & pastries.

Pool area was at a glance clean but take a closer look & it was very uneven & lots of tiles missing in & around pool.

Cannot believe also that AI does not mean you can use all the bars, the main bar at pool was help yourself around the back where could also get snacks , but would not risk it because had been out all day.

Got to say was so looking forward to this resort but was very disappointed with rooms because pictures you see in brochures are not what you get.

Room Tip: Upgrade to one of there sea front deluxe suites , its only way your get the 4 star room you think yo...

Simply wonderful! We stayed for one week and enjoyed every minute. The resort is immaculate and rooms so clean and comfy. The pools are superb for children of all ages and the choice of food is amazing. Our bungalow was literally one minute walk from the beach which is gorgeous sand and very shallow which was super for our 3 year old.

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.
