“Great place for no frills ... Have visited twice”
Reviewed 10 August 2014 via mobile

Have visited these apartment twice now in consecutive yrs with my niece. Cheap, cheerful and great price with a fantastic pool and facilities. Very quiet the time of yr we go which just adds to the appeal. Also catching the local bus to the apartments from the airport saves you a shed load, only paying less than 5€ return instead of the usual £25.00+. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend these apartments if you don't want any frills and just want a base / bed ..

We got back from a week at Fuertesol Bungalows only yesterday! What a lovely place to have a chilled out holiday. We are a couple aged 24 & 30 and decided to book these self catering apartments in order for a chilled out break in the sunshine.

Firstly the staff are sooo friendly. Upon arrival we was made to feel very welcome straight away. Very quickly showed to our room and given a quick speech regarding the poolbar times and shown the other entrances into the resort if we went out and returned after the reception had closed.

Upon inspection of our bungalows we was very surpised at how clean and spacious they was. I am told all the bungalows are the same and they comprise of a seperate spacious bedroom area, a seperate bathroom with toilet, sink, shower bath and bidet, then a combined lounge, kitchen and dining area. Plenty of wardrobe space in the bedroom however there was only a few hangers so a travel iron might be worth taking. The bungalow have a maid come in to clean four times a week and on every occasion our towels was replaced with clean ones (although i think it does say clean towels will be replaced twice a week in the brouchure) There is a safe in your wardrobe which you can rent for €10 a week with a rerundable €5 deposit. The bungalows dont have aircon so it got very hot and actually quite uncomfortable at night but you can hire a fan. The pool bar is spacious and clean and the staff make the place a very enjoyable place to drink and eat. They do serve food and are very happy to wrap this up for youto take round the pool or into your bungalow which i thought was very good. All they ask is you return your pots rather than leave them in your bungalows which is very reasonable. They also hold a happy hour 9pm to 10pm where local spirits and beers are two for one. We stayed in a room close to the pool bar, and yes the bar is quite noisey but to be honest its kick out time by midnight so this didnt really cause any problems.

The complex is on a flight path however the planes take about 10 seconds to pass overhead and once youve been there a day or two you dont even notice them. The pool is really big and there was plenty of sun loungers although typical holiday makers do get up quite early and put towels out even though the hotel policy does state that this is not allowed. But there is plenty of loungers and we never had a problem. One thing i will say is the pool is very cold and its a salt water pool not chlorine but once your in it for a few minutes its fine and is actually quite refreshing.

The actual place Feurtaventura was beautiful. The complex was about a 5 / 10 minute walk into the main square where there is plenty of amazing resturants and bars to choose from. We went for one week and ate out every night and wish we had got another week to try all the resturants we wanted to. Very friendly place to go on holiday and we was actually surprised how many english people we met that had actually moved out there to live. The beach was lovely although quite windy.

Overall the island and resort was perfect for a chilled out break for a week. We will definately be returning and i cant wait.

Room Tip: Pool view rooms will be quite noisey although ideal for popping in and out for the loo and drinks.

Visited these apartments last November on a last minute trip with my dad, The bungalows were really quite small and it did feel abit like we were on top of eachother even with only two of us there! For what we payed they werent too bad, the rooms were clean and we did have a pool and the pool bar which was open til late, but it was about a 5/10 minute walk to the beach/bars, there isnt a huge amount to do in the area either but we took a few walks to feed the chipmunks a few times, which was amazing! As a whole, not a bad little place for the price, just dont expect space and luxury, great spot if you're travelling on a budget!

We have just come back from a week at the fuertesol bungalows, perfect weather and the bungalows were great had everything we needed, the people on reception and the pool bar were really helpful and there was plenty to do around the island. Got a bus to the bungalows from the airport which was so much quicker and cheaper than a transfer/taxi.

We came to stay at the bungalows for a week in June. We read previous reviews so weren't too sure what we were letting ourselves in for, but we couldn't be happier. The apartment was basic but very clean with frequent housekeeping visits. The beds were comfortable, but did have a waterproof protector on that rustles when you roll over - simply remove it! There is a pool bar which serves food all day. A mini market which stocks all basic foods, and saves you carrying water all the way from town. Reception staff are so helpful, bar staff are so friendly, and maintenance guys work long hours to keep the place in good order. Yes it could do with a kick of paint in places and I'm sure it will be done before long but we really can't fault it. We came with a 3 year old who unfortunately was poorly when we came, and nothing was too much trouble. It is in the flight path, but with a 3 year old it's exciting and after a while you don't notice them. We would definitely come back.
