The whole complex is obviously undergoing lots of upgrading which was evident when we were there. The apartment/bungalow was ok for the money we paid. Yes there was no kettle but when I asked at reception one was given to me free of charge, as is the tv (free). Beds were comfy, and its a relaxing place. Swimming pools not heated so they were a little cold but April is still early in the season. The Zanzibar sports bar I felt was not really aimed at families, would of been nice to have a bit more family entertainment. Also a beautiful view off the top terrace of the bar of the resort would of been even better had they offered food perhaps? I would go here again lovely resort, staff friendly and helpful.

The hotel is amazing, my family had a excellent time here. It's child-friendly and is very good for a chilled out type of holiday. The resort is very quiet and the Malibu bar is lovely there. The staff are very kind and they give you a iron If you ask for one. The beach is a few minutes away and the community is amazing. Also the swimming pool wasn't too busy it was quiet and the children loved it. It would also be good if you was going for a exciting holiday because you can make it as crazy or as chilled as you want. The airport is only a few mins away and is very nice. I really love the Malibu bar, the staff are lovely and so is the food. Also the bars nearby are super cheap my family personally loved the Wild West resturant! It's amazing I really reccomend it. 5 star rating from me.

Room Tip: Just make sure you take essentials like food and more things If you want to cook and choose one in t...

Just got back from a weeks stay here, brilliant. I can't understand people who think they are going to get above 3* at these rates. Marvelous value for money. There was all the cooking utensils you need in the kitchen, at least 5 English speaking channels on the t.v. 2 of those being movie channels. The main thing to mention is the peace and quiet for sleeping and the fantastic comfy beds. I've slept in many beds in hotels but these were 5* quality. Staff were extremely friendly and the complex is not to far away to walk to Caleta. We had a lovely friendly visitor a cat, he looked a bit like a Siamese with blue eyes. A stay very much enjoyed by us. Thank you Montecastillo.

Room Tip: I personally would say all rooms are great.

Lots to like generally but the apartments were in a poor condition. We occupied 4 chalets and in each one the bath was peeling and full of rust, plaster peeling off the walls in chunks, and not particularly clean. The sheets didn't fit the beds so every time you turned over you were lying on the mattress. I did not have a microwave or kettle although a kettle was brought later. I had to throw all the food away that I bought as the fridge had one setting....Freeze! Milk was frozen solid and all salad stuff was inedible. Concrete tomatoes anyone?
The supermarkets (2 of them) are incredibly expensive as is eating out. Avoid Tony's near the town. The cod ordered for the children was frozen in the centre!
Word of caution around the pools, the tiles are slippy when wet.
On the plus side the people were friendly and polite and we had a relaxing holiday with fab weather. You do get what you pay for but it does not work out cheap overall.

Stayed here 5yrs ago, fab, what a let down this time, bed super king size and comfy until you move all bedding double size even the throw over the top, fridge covered in rust, bath had been painted but was peeling off when you had a shower, front door had a 2inch gap under it and half inch around rest of frame so unfortunately with the fuerteventura wind it needed wedging to stop it banging which meant we had a wind tunnel through our apartment as the balcony doors didnt fit property either. Chairs on the balcony were broken, and the area outside was full of dogs droppings as a rew of the apartments are privately owned and they have dogs that they walk around the grounds and just leave the mess, so I couldnt let my gran daughter play in this area. It is a self catering accommodation, but only two 3litre pans to cook in, no frying pan, no cutting knives, the decoration was shocking, the inch of floor around all walls was ingrained dirt, the list goes on. Why didnt we change rooms, allegedly there were none available, the holiday rep on site came to see us to invite us to the welcoming meeting so we showed him around the room, he couldnt get out of the apartment quick enough saying he would try and get our room changed, then he disappeared and we didnt see him for the rest of the holiday. Totally disappointing holiday.

Room Tip: If your on a budget try fuertesol or fuerteventura beach club, or if you have a little more cash ava...
