This beachfront hotel has been awarded Spain’s highest award for quality.
This huge hotel is just a stone’s throw from a sandy beach. And it’s also a 10-minute walk to Caleta de Fuste’s pint-sized harbour – there are a handful of bars and restaurants right on the water.
The hotel holds the Q award for quality. Thanks to the outdoor lagoon pools and al fresco grill restaurant, it’s easy to see why. There’s another buffet restaurant, as well as nightly live shows.

Brilliant holiday all round!
I have just come back from a week at this hotel, and enjoyed every second of it! The three of us (26 year old females) were all in agreement that it is one of the nicest hotels that we have stayed at. Our flight was delayed by an hour which meant that we missed dinner. Checking in, which took minutes (no lack of staff as previously noted.. there were four staff on reception to deal with the check ins). They opened up the restaurant for us after hours so we could get something to eat. We then went up to the main bar and had a couple of cocktails. One of the barmen also came over to us at 11pm to explain the all inclusive ended then, but he would serve us one more before they'd have to start charging. Although we knew this to be the case, I thought it was great that he took the time to let us know. Our room: 2240 was lovely. We booked a standard room to sleep three people and couldn't fault it at all. The beds were comfy, even the sofa bed which had been additionally set up. We all loved the desperate shower/toilet room to the vanity units which meant we had so much space to get ready in the evening! Not entirely sure why people are grumbling about lack of tea/coffee facilities. We had a kettle in the room. Yes it doesn't come with anything but grab sachets from breakfast.. Not difficult! We had a fridge as well with complimentary bottles of water in it. Housekeeping/cleanliness: our room was incredibly clean. We had our towels changed every day. They are white, soft and fluffy (unlike some towels you have on holiday). The general cleanliness of the hotel was brilliant as well. They had staff walking around poolside throughout the day picking up the guests litter. The food: can't really fault it for what it is. I don't get why so many people complain about the lack of variety when there is so much! Breakfast - endless amounts of food catering for everyone. There is a massive variety of teas on offer from English to herbal teas that I haven't even heard of! There are several coffee machines so I didn't even witness anyone waiting for hot drinks. Endless amounts of fruit, bread, yoghurts, cereals, cooked meats, cold meats, fresh omelettes made to order. There are also fresh juices and smoothies which were lovely. Lunch/Dinner - again endless amounts of food. Fresh fish, meats, salads. We had ribs and veal cooked fresh, along with endless choices of pasta. We mainly ate in the Aloe bar as we weren't that hungry during the day, so chose to have a toastie and salad instead. You can order basic drinks included on the all inclusive as well which ranged from wines, cava, cold drinks and beer. Poolside: there are plenty of sunbeds for all of the hotel guests. We didn't have an issue with people reserving sunbeds with towels, there was still plenty of room especially for the three of us together. We managed to get sunbeds in front of the pool by block 2/3 every day. So definitely not an issue as people made out. We chose to go outside of children's holidays as well so maybe it's an issue during holidays but it wasn't when we were there. The pool is salt water and a little bit chilly at first but swim a couple of strokes and it warms right up. The pools are shallow as well, at 112cm. The "kids" pool by the Aloe Bar is a bit warmer and there is an open jacuzzi in one corner. Beach: we only visited the beach once during the day. It wasn't too crowded and there were still plenty of sunbeds free. Although I believe you have to pay â¬10.50 for that and a parasol for the day. The beach is a little stoney but nothing that a bare foot can't cope with. The sea was nice and warm. Entertainment: the only entertainment we witnessed was the Lion King which was brilliant!! Having seen it on two occasions at the Mayflower and Plymouth, I thought for a hotel production, it was brilliant! They mine, but in my opinion that is better than having people who can't sing doing a production. Surrounding area: the hotel is set in a really nice location. Exit towards the beach and take a left to the harbour. We found a lovely restaurant called El Camarote where we ate twice. It's a lovely location where we sat and watched the sun setting. Towards the front of the hotel, literally cross the road and walk straight up, is a great Indian called Fusion 22. You even get a free jug of sangria at the end of your meal! Overall, a brilliant holiday at an excellent hotel. I'm not one for returning to hotels or even countries, but if I came back to Fuerteventura then I would definitely come back here! 10/10!! More
We have just returned from our holiday went in May / June, before we arrived at the hotel we emailed them stating it was our honeymoon and could we put in a request for block 3, when we checked in we got block 3 as requested and went to our room to find Champagne and Chocolates, how lovely of them. The rooms are good size and everything you need. Pools are a great size, however the cold pool is FREEZING, but ok once you get past the shock! Food was lovely, a bit repetitive but surely you should expect that on a 2 week holiday. Hotel is lovely and clean, however the maid in our room came really late on around 3/4pm so when you came in for a nap she was cleaning or hadn't been in yet, the room wasn't cleaned to a great deal but it was ok. Be aware that they charge a lot for a safe, we paid 50 euros for 2 weeks and only got 5 euros back as deposit I loved the outside bar especially at night, it was lovely sat out there sipping cocktails.We have been to this hotel twice and would return. Looking forward to our next visit.More

We've just returned from a 10 night stay at the Barcelo Thalasso and we loved every minute. We stayed Half Board, the breakfasts were lovely, plenty to choose from if you fancy a full english or just fancy some toast or cereal there are lots of choices. We had a couple of evening meals which were also nice plenty to choose from - there is a hot plate and grill at the top of the restaurant which the staff cook in front of you which is nice. On half board if you let the hotel know the day before they are happy for you to swap your evening meal for lunch, we did this as we wanted to eat out and go and explore on the evening. Lunches were good, you have the usual choices but they often have a chef cooking fresh things like toasted sandwiches, burgers and hot dogs. The staff in the restaurant are lovely, they clear you table away very quickly and are always pleasant. The hotel itself and the rooms are spotlessly clean, which we were very impressed with a hotel this size. We had a twin room, we were greeted with a bottle of champagne as a couple in our party were celebrating their wedding anniversary and a 60th Birthday so this was a nice touch. The rooms are being slowly updated at the moment so I look forward to seeing what they will do with that. The reception area is lovely, you can get basic wifi here which we had no issues with. We didn't really attend the evening entertainment or the bar as this was quite pricey and we wanted to go out and about. The hotel is literally a 2 min walk and you are on the beach, its stunning. The beach front and the harbour are lovely, so clean and tidy and lovely to walk round and explore. The harbour has so lovely bars and restaurants as well as activities such as a catamaran, swimming with sea lions and a whale and dolphin tour. We unfortunately didn't try these but we most definitely will if we go back. The Thalasso is situated perfectly, you are right next to the small town which has all shops you need and some lovely bars and restaurants, I recommend The Blues Bar if you are looking for a chilled out night with some lovely cocktails. If you are looking for a louder night out then try Pierros live acts every night. If you cross over from Thalasso and go into the other little town there are some lovely restaurants I can definitely recommend El Patio - gorgeous food and lovely service. There is lots to offer at the Thalasso Spa, the staff do very well at putting on activities in the day such as tennis, shuffleboard and french bools which are fun, there is a kids club which looked good. There is a mini golf which was 6 euros for 18 holes which was fun but could do with a tidy up. We rented some table tennis rackets for 10 euros which you can keep for your whole holiday which is a lot of fun. All in all we had a fantastic holiday at the Thalasso and we are already looking to go back next year. I would highly recommend this hotel and I would highly recommend Caletta De Fuste as its such a stunning area.More

Not for me
We stayed at the Barcelo Castillo Beach May 2014 in deluxe studios and were very impressed. We had been in the grounds and reception area of Barcelo Fuerteventura and were not so impressed. This year my plane was delayed and we were bussed to the Barcelo Fuerteventura for lunch and dinner. My first impression was correct - the Castillo Beach is nicer. A great deal of work has been done on the beach front since our last visit and it looks good. Distance to airport is great and italian restuarant in town is well worth a visit.More
