Reviewed 17 August 2014

We've just returned from the Barcelo and had a great time. It's a large hotel so as you can expect the restaurant can get very busy at times as can the pool area. The food was excellent and there is a great choice for everyone at every meal time. The hotel is spotlessly clean and the staff are very friendly and can't do enough to make your stay enjoyable.

We upgraded to a superior room, and I am not sure it was worth it (the towelling robes and slippers aren't much use in the August heat and the wifi in the room hardly worked) and I wasn't overly impressed with the quality/finish of the bathroom (room 3316).

There are loads of sunbeds which you can get at anytime of the day but only limited parasols which meant that, as usual, people would get up at the crack of dawn to reserve them and then not come to the pool unitl after lunch or later to use them. I wish the hotel would sort out the problem of people doing this.

Overall this is a great hotel, close to the beach and to the airport. I would return, but probably when the season is a bit quieter, in June or September.

Room Tip: We stayed in Block 3 which was further away from the restaurant and evening entertainment so was a b...

From check in to departure was all very well organised. Our room was great, clean, separate vanity area, quiet room, fresh towels every day, our room wasn't cleaned one day so we told reception and it was done straight away. All staff very helpful and very friendly. Pool area great, plenty of sun beds. All areas clean. Food and drink was great, brilliant choice for every taste. Cocktails and cava included. The kids loved the milk shakes! You can't go hungry in this hotel!! Food always hot and fresh. Waiters came to take your drinks order in the restaurant- no problem. Close to the beach, which is lovely. We had a great family holiday. Would def return back here or highly recommend to others.

So, we have just enjoyed another holiday at Barceló Fuerteventura Thalasso spa. ...in fact this was our 18th consecutive visit and there are others who have visited many more times than we have, so common is the repeat business because of the quality of the hotel and service.

On arrival, despite a busy counter, guests were all welcomed and given details about the hotel.

As always reception staff were helpful, courteous and did everything possible to meet the needs of guests.

This willingness to ensure guests are well catered for is consistent through the hotel from gardeners to waiters, animation team to lifeguards....It does not take long before you become one of the Barcelo family.

There have been some excellent changes such as upgrades or refurbishment of rooms. Ours was absolutely beautiful with spectacular views over the poll and beach which is right outside the hotel gates to the rear.

The extensive area surrounding the swimming pools has all been refurbished providing a soft to the touch, but non slippery surface to walk on.

The poolside bar has a fabulous new all inclusive seating area and new comfortable sitting areas have been created making this a great place to eat during the day or enjoy a drink at night.

New rooms have been created with their own external Jacuzzis. ..A nice touch.

Ground floor rooms have outside terraces with sunbeds.

As always I cannot praise or thank all of the staff enough for their attention and kindness during our holiday: something which so many guests comment upon and why they keep returning.

My friends who have visited before are also returning and commented how clean the hotel is.

Food is excellent: a vast selection every day with specialist cooking displays. You simply could not fail to find a number of dishes every day that you would enjoy.

Entertainment remains astounding with shows such as Grease, Starlight Express, Lion King and a range of others being performed in the hotel's incredible theatre.

During the day a wide range of activities for children, teenagers and adults provides great fun for all age groups.

Barcelo is a top class hotel which is not resting on its laurels, as management told us about future plans which sound superb....massive investment at Barcelo, all to the benefit of guests.

We are already booked for two more holidays because once you have visited you are sure to be drawn back like so many repeat guests.

I really cannot praise this hotel enough where it's facilities are complemented by wonderful staff all wanting to ensure your holiday is great....and it will be.

Highly recommended from another delighted guest.

The hotel was ok and the room was nice but lots of planes going over all the time! Food was not good and the selection was pretty much the same every night - same old chips etc rather than authentic spanish food! Glad we had use of the spa as the pool at the hotel everyone was crammed together but the spa was lovely and quiet and lots of space to relax!

Location excellent - close to everything you may need to make a fabulous holiday. Transfer time from airport a real bonus only 15 mins at the most. Spacious, very clean, with attentive staff. Plentiful varied menus. Would highly recommend for families.

We are currently staying at this hotel and have just enjoyed the evenings entertainment. The staff provided a great show and worked hard to entertain the audience of a ages.
During the show the bar man showed us very attentive service.
Afterwards we watched how a member of staff cleaned the main stage area with such meticulous detail. He clearly had great pride in the work he was doing.
Barcelo you should be very proud of your staff.

The hotel is big but friendly. At no point did we ever struggle to get a bed around the popl,even midafternoon. People do put towels on beds at about 7.30am, when there is absolutely no need. The food, drink and waiting on staff are very attentive and can't do enough for you. I wish there were designated smoking areas though. Some people spoilt my lunch by smoking next to us outside the main bistro area and also around the pool, maybe this could be addressed. Overall though,an extremely good place to go with kids and unlike my usual thoughts after holidays, I would definitely return.
