This was our 2nd holiday at this resort, I've never returned to the same place before but this one was worth it. The resort is in a fantastic spot, tucked in a bay to shelter it from the winds that Fuertentura can have. It is right on the beach and next to the spa on the beachfront. The beach is beautiful and massively spacious. It has a promenade to walk along in either direction. Ice creams to be bought or bars and restaurants along the way. The resorts pools are just perfect. One large main pool and another cooler (more adults) pool. Then a third shallow kids pool. We have two young girls 3 & 5yrs but definitely didn't want to be overrun by kids all holiday. This hotel had the perfect balance of children, couples, families.
The kids club here is absolutely amazing. The entertainment staff/kids club staff are so lovely and worked extremely hard. The activities are well organised and welcoming.
The evening entertainment is absolutely amazing. I have never ever been on any holiday where it is so good. Firstly there is a kids disco/entertainment if you wish. Then a show every night from 9.30pm. They have a 2 week schedule of shows alternating between outside acts and shows performed by the animation team. All of these (including the ones we thought we might not enjoy) were brilliant. They were all very professional and entertaining.
The food was just lovely. There was always a very large choice. Grilled fish and meat every night. Pasta, salad, continental cold meats/cheeses. Stir fries, A roast meat bar, and about 5 or 6 other choices plus side dishes. Everyone will eat well here as there was so much choice. The restaurant although slightly noisy and large was always clean and tidy and the tables cleared and relaid very quickly by the abundance of staff. We never once waited for a table and the service for drinks was always fast. The staff were friendly and welcoming.
The rooms were great. We had a double room with a pull out sofa bed for the girls. This sofa bed itself was enormous and extremely comfortable. The rooms were left well cleaned and tidy every single day. The balcony was nice too, overlooking the pool. We did have one issue that the first day we booked on we were given a room that overlooked the edge of the complex (no pretty pool or sea view). This must be a very rare room because I would say that 98% of the rooms looked out over the pool or sea. Anyway I requested a move (late at night by this point) and was told nothing was available but to come back the next day and they would move me. Ericka and Daniel on reception were amazingly helpful and courteous and did in fact move us the next day as requested. The only gripe I would have is that the kettles and tea making facilities provided last year have been changed to a facility you now have to pay for. I did miss this. We also requested a late check out for our room as we left for the airport at 6pm. We got it and this made our life much easier that last day.
Overall we had a lovely holiday and would thoroughly recommend it. I would go again.
