We traveled as a family (2 parents and 1 x 20 year old son) in August 2015, staying at the Barcelo Fuerteventura Thalasso Spa for 11 nights. We could not have been more delighted with our experience. The hotel was spotless throughout and the staff consistently polite and helpful. Our room was large with a proper pull our sofa bed as the third bed, which is important when the third adult is 6 ft 4 inches tall!. Our room was cleaned every day to a very high standard.
The choice and quality of food in both the Maxorata and Aloe bar was excellent. The pool area was clean and well looked after and the Spa offered us a welcome oasis from the noise of the pool.
A short walk took us to a pleasant beach with a slightly longer walk taking us to an excellent sandy beach with lots of fish to play with. Access to shops and bars was easy as was access to the small harbor. A walk along the coastline took us to cliffs where we could see the wild chipmunks.
All in all and excellent experience. We would highly recommend and will surely return.More
Great spa, good breakfast, location misleading
If it's a great pool and spa you're after near Estepona then the Barcelo will suit you well. The buffet breakfast was one of the best I've had too. The only down side was the hotel's location, as you'd assume from the Google map reference that the spa was on the beach, not it's actual location on the wrong side of the A7 motorway.More

Lovely relaxing family holiday in the sun
Our two week holiday was the beginning of July and totally enjoyed our stay, which was recommended by quite a few people. We arrived at 1pm and like other guests our room wasn't ready which we quite understood as the hotel is only about ten minutes from the airport. We went and explored the hotel and grounds and then had lunch which there was plenty on offer and very appetizing. We were in block 3 Room 3132 which we were happy about as it is the quieter block I would imagine as its the furthest away from the hotel. It was on the first floor overlooking the next door hotels grounds. The ground floor rooms had Jacuzzi's which were amazing together with sunbeds. We had our 16 year old son sharing with us who slept on a sofa bed which he had no problems in sleeping well. The rooms are spacious and the bathroom although small had a rain shower which was lovely. The wash basin is separate from the bathroom. We had no problems in connecting to the wifi which we found was unusual to connect in the rooms, so kept our son happy for two weeks. In reception area everyone used to connect to the free wifi, so that was a bit hit and miss, i suppose with the amount of people using it, slowed the connection down somewhat.
We were all inclusive, my only moan is that the all inclusive drinks stopped at 11pm which we thought was too early, so we just ordered just before 11pm along with everyone else. I think you could purchase something to get half price drinks, but we didnt bother doing this. I would imagine in the height of season it would become a bit busy towards that time to get your last drinks. There was everything on offer from delicious cocktails, to beer, cava, wine, spirits and soft drinks. We thought it was a nice touch for the waiters to walk about taking orders whilst watching the entertainment, so you didnt get people walking about getting their drinks. This we thought was very helpful.
The entertainment we watched most evenings, and I must say trying to keep a 16 year old occupied is very difficult and he actually loved it, which is a result in itself. We thought the entertainment was really well thought about, I loved the starlight express show the most. The shows were very professional and I must say they must be congratulated on the content and their dancing was fantastic. Well done. We have seen many many shows in Tunisia and Egypt and we thought the shows were the best here at Barcello. The entertainment is on a two week programme so you don't see any repeated shows.
The food was excellent with lots of choices and the roasts were delicious. Plenty of pasta, pizza, authentic dishes which were lovely to try. These were all on a two week rota as well so there wasn't any chance of getting bored with repeated food choices. There was a chocolate fountain which was very popular with sweets and fruit to dip in the chocolate. Yum Yum. For breakfast there was pancakes, omlettes, fried breakfasts if that floats your boat as well. The usual cereals and bread and jams. Cakes were plentiful as well. Everything was filled up frequently and there was never empty plates. We used to sit more or less in the same section for our meals so got to know the same waiters and waitresses who work very efficiently. I would imagine again in the height of season the drink orders would be much slower to reach your table.
The pool was lovely but my only moan on the pool, was it was a saltwater pool which we have never had before and put me off a bit. It didn't seem to bother the children though!!! I must admit we never had problems getting a bed under the shade because we used to reserve it quite early. If you cant beat them join them!!!!!! These beds are popular as they were in the shade. In our second week we noticed that it was getting busier and there wasn't enough beds to go round. It really makes me cross when you get people reserving beds and don't come down to sit on them until the afternoon, that is totally selfish. Or for a family of four with small children they reserve four beds which the children don't use because they are at the kids club or in the pool all day.
We hired a car for three days which we booked here in the UK and for three days. We booked a Renault Megane (open top) car and paid Â£90. We noticed that the same car was about Â£300 booked in the resort. We did the boat trip which we thought was expensive with Thomsons as we had to pay for three adults, but having the car we were able to get round the Islands and see some amazing sights, well worth the money and broke up the holiday as well. The waterpark was brilliant as well.
You had to pay 10 euros each for a beach towel which you get back at the end of your holiday, if you wanted a clean one you had to pay 2 euros for each towel, which i thought was a bit of a cheek really.
We had a fantastic holiday and would definately recommend this hotel and resort to anyone. A quick 10 minute journey from the airport is always welcome after a long journey. The resort was clean and the beach was lovely with a nice walk around the bay is lovely, welcoming the chipmunks and hedghogs on route was always entertaining. There are some shops and restaurants outside the hotel which is nice to walk around, although we didnt use any restaurants or bars as all inclusive and dont like the english looking eateries if i'm honest. We would love to revisit someday soon.More
Our second visit and we didnt think the first visit could be topped.
We stayed here for 1 week in june 2 years ago and absolutely loved it. The food and drinks are great quality and plenty of choice for everyone. Always something different on the menu. We found all of the staff to be extremely friendly and polite, nothing was to much trouble. The location is brilliant and we love the pool area as it is very spacious and the pool is huge.
We returned to fuerteventura for 5 nights at the start of may and stayed at another hotel within the area. We liked the hotel we were staying in but we missed barcelo, so on our last night we checked out of our hotel early and headed to barcello where we booked 1 night half board in the superior hot tub room. It was absolutely brilliant. Huge rooms, prime location next to the pool, newly refurbished and of course the cherry on the top is the lovely hot tub on the terrace along with 2 sun beds.
We were so upset to leave on our last day, but we were happy we got to return to the hotel foe at least the 1 night.
We cannot wait to return.More

Arrived back today from the hotel and cannot fault it. The hotel is very clean and well maintained. All the staff are very friendly. Towels in the room are changed frequently and rooms are cleaned daily. The gym is very small but has good equipment, mainly a weights area.The food in the hotel was always exceptional, different foods to fit everyones taste.
The animate team work very hard to produce shows such as The Lion King, Grease etc (which are all mimed from the stage shows but are still very good). The shows normally end around 10:50ish. Around this time (like clockwork) it was like a mass walk out from people going down to the pool area with their towels to get a sunbed for the following morning, which was ridiculous, but rather amusing!!! This is against the hotel policy but nothing is done, so, if you want a spot by the pool i would suggest get your towels ready and run down after the nightly shows!!!
The area around the hotel is beautiful, with plenty of shops, bars and restaurants (a lot of british pubs with very cheap beer/spirits). The beach is nice but quite rocky but if you walk a little further down the coastal path there is another beach which is much better and less rocks. Lots of surf/windsurfing available along the beach and the marina offers boat trips, swimming with seals and kayak hire.
All in all, the hotel and area is fantastic and would definitely recommend it to anyone.More
