I stayed here for 10 days with my wife in September 2011. There are hardly any negative things to say about this hotel.
We informed the hotel that this would be our honeymoon when we booked and boy did they remember :)
Upon arriving in the magnificent main lobby we were greeted by the very nice people behind the main desk. They remembered our names and promptly upgraded us to a junior suite. I don't know what the "normal" rooms look like; but holy cow the junior suite was awesome. The bathroom has his and hers sinks, a walk in closet, a jacuzzi, shower and toilet (and bidet, but seriously... does anyone ever use one of those?:)). The room itself is VERY spacious. The bed is even bigger than a king size bed in any other American hotel I think. There's a desk, a table with 4 chairs, a couch and a recliner. The room has a big balcony with 2 lounge chairs, a little table and 2 normal chairs. The TV in the room is on a swiveling platform, so you can watch TV where ever you are in the room.
When we returned to our room on the first night, we found a bottle of cava, 2 glasses and a plate of strawberries dipped in chocolate waiting for us... Thank you very mycgh
We ate breakfast every day in the hotel and I think I ate something different every day. As far as I could tell, the food was fresh and there was always plenty. There are even a couple bottles of cava if you want a bubbly breakfast :)
We ate 3 times in La Veranda for lunch and tried both the themed restaurants. I've read a lot of reviews here in Tripadvisor about the ridiculously high price in these restaurants, but I honestly don't agree. 13 euro for a lunch dish isn't a lot of money I think. Yes, you can find something for 9 euro when you go to the center of Calete de Fuste, but the quality of the food is nowhere near as good as in the Sheraton. The waiters in the restaurants were always extremely nice and went out of their way to make sure we had everything we wanted. Especially Jose, who always worked the night shift in the themed restaurants was the best waiter we've ever had. He was very friendly, catered to our every need, did his best to explain every dish and even brought us 2 glasses of cava (or champagne, I couldn't tell) the first night.
The pool area was always clean and there were plenty of lounge chairs available. We ordered pina coladas almost every day and the guys and girls behind the bar always brought it right to our chairs. There are 2 sweet water and heated pools and 1 non heated salt water pool. There's a separate kiddie pool which all the parents used and all kids seemed to enjoy.
There's a put-put course, soccer and and basketball court on the property but we were too lazy to try these out.
About the smell... yes we noticed the smell too. But somehow I doubt it's coming from the hotel area. We also smelled the same sewer smell outside the hotel when walking to the center of Calete de Fuste along the beach. It could be the Sheraton, but I'm not sure. And it wasn't like it smelled like we were sitting next to an open sewer. It was noticable but only for brief periods of time.
The hotel, just like every other hotel here, is in the approach path of the airport. So yes, you can see and hear planes landing a couple of times every day. But we didn't hear anything at night or in the early morning, so it wasn't all that bad.
If you're staying here, make the trip down to the little harbor and check out the guys from Deep Blue Diving. I did my open water course there (also reviewed it here on Tripadvisor) and it was a blast.
This has been one of the absolute best hotels we've every stayed in and I recommend every in Fuerteventura to stay here.
Oh, and we partied with Sasha Baron Cohen and Ben Kingsley because they stayed here during the shoot of The Dictator. They had a wrapping party at La Veranda and allowed everyone in, so +1 for the crew and The Sheraton :)
