“16TH CONSECUTIVE VISIT.....AND BOOKING AGAIN!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 January 2014

Having just returned from our 16th consecutive visit to Barcelo Thalasso Spa, Fuerteventura, the whole holiday experience has been, as always fantastic.

From placing our booking with Barcelo everything was superb.

Cristina and Erika in the office and reception ensured that any requests were dealt with and we received a very warm welcome from Erika when we arrived.

We usually ask for our favourite room which Barceló always obliges with. On this occasion that room was being refurbished so there was no guarantee we could have it but, typically Barceló, so as not to disappoint, the room was finished and was absolutely beautiful.

Not only that, it seems that Barceló even remembered which sitting we preferred for the Christmas and New Year Gala dinners; absolutely superb customer services. We were even welcomed by one of the managers who came to see us.

As always, we could not have found more friendly people, as I have said before. Gardeners, reception, office, waiters, animation team; everyone works so hard to make our holidays a success and enjoyable.

The room, which was previously beautiful had been upgraded and was spacious and we were given Barceló robes and slippers to use.

I hope that other people using these rooms at Barceló treat them with the respect they deserve because obviously a lot of money has been spent in the refurbishment.

The food was excellent but the Gala dinners were as we have previously experienced a fantastic and special gastronomic delight. The chef, Mr Thomas Nunez and his team absolutely excelled again; the meals were simply spectacular. Greeted by the many chefs on arrival it made for a very special occasion; all credit to Barceló.

Every day, waiters, waitresses and chefs were happy to greet you, have a chat and prepare your food.

I am not sure what more I can say about this hotel other than we have already booked another 2 holidays and are now looking to confirm a third.

I think it is the friendly atmosphere, quality service and excellent facilities which draws us back. Since coming here we have gone nowhere else as it is all in one package.

Any problems...only one...should have booked three weeks instead of two!!!

Highly recommended and thanks to everyone at Barceló for working so hard to make our holidays with you so special.

Ray Guselli

By the way...met a lot of regulars again...people keep coming back so Barcelo is certainly doing everything right!!!

Checked in new years day 2014. Only 10 mins from the airport. The hotel is big, well designed and well maintained. It looks brand new.

In case you stop reading half way through, I'll cover the important things first. It was a nice surprise to see that you can get premium spirits with your all inclusive wrist band. The brochure said local drinks only. On the other hand, some cocktails have a supplement of 2 euros and generally the cocktails aren't up to much. I found a solution to this by pouring myself a kids slush puppy and getting the bar man to pour some Smirnoff in. Amazing.

The large entertainment hall, bar and reception are always at a good temperature. The rooms are equipped with air-con but we didn't use it as the outside temperature seemed to keep the room warm during the day and cool enough at night. Beds are comfy and the large ceiling shower in our room worked very well. The balcony provided a good sun trap for when it got a bit breezy down at the pool on a couple of occasions.

There are a couple of good Irish and English bars close by and plenty of restaurants. The beach is a stone throw away and down there you will find the crazy golf and Spa. We were under the impression these were included in the AI package but the crazy golf is 4.50 euro and the Spa was 10 euro. There are 2 golf courses nearby, only 4.50 euros in a taxi.

Very happy with the service. I managed to smash the glass in our coffee table and they came to replace it straight away with no charge. The staff didn't expect or hint that they wanted a tip but were very greatful to get a couple of euros here and there.

Room Tip: Get a room in block 3 as it is closer to the sea

We spent Xmas and new year here. Great stay, good food, nice room and enjoyed all the facilities. Stayed AI which I would recommend, excellent location. Only complaint check in was a little slow. Very close to the beach and the shopping centre. Rooms were clean. You do need to pay for internet and to change the pool towels it still very good value.

Arrived for a Christmas break 20/12/2013 to 27/12/2013, check in was a little slow, but staff were lovely. Booked a superior room on AI in block 3, and emailed to confirm our request just before we left UK, The room (3225) was just as described on web site (if not better), large comfy bed, seaview, and very quiet.The AI drinks package was good, the food, although good was a little repetative and not always as hot as it should have been, the tables in the restaurant were very close together, making it feel like a works canteen and not relaxing at all.The pool that was described as heated was not, it was freezing cold.
The entertainment was childish to say the least, most nights it was the in-house team who mimed to different musicals, the outside entertainment brought in were not of good quality for such a big hotel chain, maybe they should up their budget on entertainment and put on shows that would keep the guests in the hotel (or maybe there is madness in their motives and less people drinking the AI drinks package ?).This said we had a good holiday, would return again for Christmas but dont think any other time would be our idea of a relaxing holiday.

Room Tip: Upgrade to superior room in block 3

We spent a week in late November 2013 for some winter sun- the hotel was immaculate, beds were amazing and the choice available at mealtimes was unbelievable. The staff were extremely efficient and friendly and because we had a balcony room we were entitled to free afternoons in the spa with warm bubble pools plus music, hamam and much more . The whole experience was relaxing and rejuvinating

Not recommended for travelers looking for good value. I was traveling with for kids for winter vacations. The only good were aimation for kids and location of the hotel. the rest was: paying for towels if you want to change it, paying for internet what is not available in the room, bad cleaning, same food every day. Small heated pool for kids were was crawded while other pools were quite empty because they are not heated in December.
The resort need definately a refurbishment. I am not going back there soon.
