After arriving in Fuerteventura and initially booking in at the Elba Sara me and my girlfriend were informed that was 100% fully booked, so were shipped off to the dreadful, fly-ridden and completely dead Elba Palace. After one night obviously decided it wasn't good enough and argued our case and we were offered our holiday at Sheraton.
This proved to be a blessing in disguise. After arriving at the front door we could tell this was going to be good, the hotely looked styish and modern with lots of class. The lobby area looked stunning on arrival.
Our room was a decent size albeit the bed was 2 singles pushed together. The cleanliness was very good it looked spotless. The bathroom was huge and is seperate into 3 sections, 1 section containing a gigantic bath and a seperate, yet just as big shower. All toiletries provided also. The view from the balcony was sea view, while the seats were top quality and comfy so were nice to sit out at night on. There was a mini bar (although very expensive) and lots of space to put all your belongings including a free room safe for valuables. The TV channels weren't that good (only 3 UK channels) however this didn't bother me much as the weather was too good to sit in.
Onto the food which was widely hit and miss. There was a whole load of variety, we were half board so had Breakfast and Evening Meal. Breaktast was good, the only problem was the bacon was continental so had too much fat for our liking, however everything else made up for it especially freshly prepared omlettes of your choice! Evening Meal was the hit and miss part, there was always food we had liked there however some of it was cold which was a shame because it looked so nice, therefore had to use the microwave. There were different themed nights for the food including chinese, mexican, italian and spanish. While there is also a dress code the hotel werent strict on it at all, guests in football kits and vest tops and shorts, which completely contrasted the man in the tuxedo in the restaurant.
The entertainment was near non existant, there was a local pianist every night in the lobby bar however this was just to create an atmosphere rather than a show, however on 3 occasions in the 2 weeks we were there, were a micheal jackson/jackson 5 tribute band, a tribute band for the bee gees and covers for Robbie/Cher/Celine Dion and George Michael. These were ok and made the evenings enjoyable but if there was no show on it wasnt worth the price of drinks to sit there!
The facilities were excellent, the pool area was one of the highlights, bar a few days where constructions workers cleaned one pool which caused disruption, no idea why they couldnt have done that in the winter! So yes, there were 3 pools and a jacuzzi all quite big, and while there were plenty sunbeds available some of them were broken. The pool bar was very expensive however, just an example; 15 euros for a baguette!!! There was a spa within the hotel which was available to use for a price and also complimentary newspapers and computers (slow ones) to use to check up on news.
The staff were super friendly from the restaurant to the reception. A shout out to Tom who runs the hotels activities, he is very friendly and the activities are a laugh.
All in all we very much enjoyed our stay and apart from the minor flaws which can be easily corrected this hotel is top notch and made the whole experience even better!
