Stay: April 5-12 (one week)
Family with two boys (4 and 2 years)
Family room – two separate rooms connected via door
Plus:
• Morro Jable – nice place, beautiful see view
• Hotel is near to Morro Jable town, shopping centre right downstairs the hotel (few good shops including Interspar), access also by a lift
• very friendly staff English and German speaking, every problem solved almost immediately
• enough places in the main restaurant, always free seat to find
• very tasty food however the choice could have been wider and more varied
• self-service for soft drinks, table wine, beer, water and hot drinks for all inclusive guests
• simple but practically equipped rooms, no problem with cleanliness
• we appreciated especially the possibility to have two connected rooms
• advantage for families – play ground for children, kids club

Minus
• in case you want to spend the holiday on the beach – you need cca 15 minutes to walk to the beach that is very windy, the temperature of the see water is quite low (what is usual for the Fuerteventura Island)
• sometimes the evening entertaining program was noisy
• sometimes it was overcrowded at the main pool during the day

Tips for trips
• No problem to rent a car for good price and conditions directly at the reception or in the Morro Jable
• our best trip was the visit of Corralejo sand dune

This was our 2nd visit after 2 years. And as first time, we enjoyed our stay very much.
Good value for all inclusive. We got upgrade to ocean view free of charge.
Complex itself is large and needs some attention here and there but all in all its not bad for 4 stars. That type of resorts are very common in Canaries.
Pool area is situated on two levels, plenty of sunbeds, lifeguard.There is also heated pool in spa area with comfy sunbeds. Gym and sauna free of charge.
We didnt use wifi, cant comment.
Food is good, plenty of choice for every taste. Im not a fussy eater, cant fault anything. Paella every evening, at least two types of fish, meats, salad bar, soup. If you dont like anything, you can try something else. Breakfast buffet was excellent - freshly cooked bread, selection of cheeses, fruits, crepes and traditional breakfast items. Lots of fresh fruits, very delicious. I was surprised about desserts stand - soo delicious fresh cakes, every time something different. Fresh smoothies. Espresso bar.
Juices were rubbish but i dont drink them anyway. Only downside - very busy around food, some people just seems not to notice queue but tries to make a crowd.
Alcohol - yes, local brands only included in all inclusive but wine, beer and coctails were drinkable. Tea and coffee making facility available all day. Cant comment coffee as i dont drink it.
Good quality night shows.
All staff very polite, positive and helpful.
On my boyfriends birthday we got bottle of cava with cakes in our room (as well as on arrival), nice touch, we were surprise as i didnt mention about birthday to hotel staff.
Lots to do around hotel - all type of watersports, fishing trips, off road excursions, oasis park with shows (camel ride, swimming with sea lions)..and of course stunning beach. Yes, its a good walk away, some 10 minutes. Iberostar hotel available just in front of the beach but its more than twice Barcelo price!
Plenty of free parking around the hotel.
Would go back again!

This 80's style hotel is built without any consideration of the environment and local surroundings. It has no style, is in desperate need of an upgrade (loose tiles in room/doors don't close properly) and offers no convenience to the leisure traveler.
Although the front desk staff is very helpful, the hotel seems to be understaffed and employees are overworked and have to patience.
Buffet is below average, quality of food is low, everything tastes the same. Besides buffet there is only one additional restaurant open 4 days of the week serving "Canary Island food" which is pretty much the same as in the main buffet.
Pool is not heated, no jacuzzi or hot tub except in spa. Do not recommend visiting in winter month with kids as pool is unusable.
Drinks are watered down, only domestic labels are included in all-inclusive package. Any branded alcohol is extra.
Internet is Euro25 per week and, although available in room, restricted to the lobby area where it is usually very loud with no privacy. Even with a paid log-in code, hotel does not allow access to Internet in room.
Beach is about 2km or 1.2 miles from hotel. Long downhill walk, crossing a highway in order to get to beach.
This hotel is a "German enclave", even staff members address guests routinely in German language.
There is a shopping mall with a supermarket and about 10 stores attached to the hotel.
With occasional bad weather there is absolutely nothing to do at the hotel or in the area.

Room Tip: Rooms in main building (above reception) have good view, however they are noisy.

A pretty average complex that could do with updating, but still good value for money.

A couple of bad points, we were in block 8 which is right at the bottom of a hill, it really is a hike up to the main area and bars and restaurant and pools, ok for us but if you have health problems it could be an issue. We found that our balcony rail was coming away from the wall, we reported to reception and within 10 minutes it was being repaired.

We went all inc. and well worth it, the food was generally pretty good, not a bad choice, plenty of it and caters for all types. One thing that was not mentioned until we arrived was that men must wear long trousers in the restaurant in the evening, take a few spare pairs.

We are not heavy drinkers but the all inc. came into its own in the bar in the evening, very generous measures and a large choice.

The staff were excellent, very friendly and made an effort to speak to you, the rooms were cleaned daily to a good standard.

Evening entertainment was a bit limited but they tried, but we were not expecting West End shows.

The resort itself was pretty average, however the beaches were tremendous, miles of sand, plenty of room. A fair number of naturists but we dont regard that as a problem.

All in all a warm and sunny week in a pleasant location with good accomodation and good food and drink all at a fair price

Room Tip: The room at the lower levels i.e 7 8 and 9 are a fair distance from the pool/ bar/restaurant and it is a steep climb

All services including the rooms are average in this establishment. Staff has done a great job although the overall experience has not exceeded the "Average" quotation in a single category. It is more a management or a strategic approach to serve the average package traveller. It is a pity as i have been to this hotel 7 years ago and enjoyed it very much back then. Rooms are an average 3*, by far not the quoted 4*. Very noisy rooms, slamming doors are part of the atmosphere. Food has been disappointing.
If you want to stay in the larger area you should choose the Melia Gorriones, a fantastic hotel.

Room Tip: choose the lower blocks 8 or 9 and a room in the second floor, this will give you nice views of the sea and reduce the long way to the beach as well.
