My sister and I have just spent a week in this hotel. I had read good comments and saw promising pictures, which turned out to be quite realistic. The place is huge with beautiful gardens and swimming pools. Our room was very clean and although it is true that walls are quite thin, we weren't much bothered with noise. It was a pity we didn't have a balcony though.
Meals are served in a big room and terrace with a very large choice of Spanish and international food. Customers are in vast majority German or British.
The thing we didn't like about this hotel is that it is so big and busy that we sometimes found it hard to relax. We could only find available sunbeds by the pool when showing up very early, like 8 am. There's so many people self-serving at the buffet that sometimes you have to queue. At mid August I expect any place to be crowded, but maybe a smaller place wouldn't give that impression because of the smallest capacity. This is not to criticise to the hotel itself, just take that into account if you're looking for a peaceful place to relax.
It is mostly a place for couples and families and entertainment is low profile. Some gym by the pool, some dances for kids at night and a piano player at the bar in the hall. That was fine for us, however, note that the hotel is located quite far from the centre of Costa Calma (I would say 20 mins walk), which by the way doesn't offer much. So if one wishes to explore the island and do something different at night, you'd better rent a car (it can be easily done at the hotel or in town). Also, there is no beach that you can reach on foot apart from a small and not nice one just out of town.
To sum up, we enjoyed our stay, although if we were to go back to Fuerteventura I'd try to look for a smaller and more quite, even if less luxurious place.
