Fuerteventura, Canary Islands: Holiday review

  • My holiday in Fuerteventura

    Review by: Andreea Ioana

    Weather

    The weather was perfect all the time. It is all the time a specific island wind but this is very nice especially for lovers of water sports.
    In the morning is sometimes a bit cloudy but the sun always pops up and does not disappoint.
    Sometimes it rains and is cloudy but is just fine how to succeed to take a break so you don't burn your skin.

    Holiday

    I've been in Fuerteventura for several times. A couple of times in April and May and then in November.
    The island's beaches are fabulous especially lovely dunes of Corralejo and areas for kite and water sports.
    The food is very good and varied. There are many types of restaurants and also you can buy anything from the shops.
    I love that you can eat fish and fresh seafood, which the Mainland is not so easy to accomplish (especially at my home).

  • My Holiday in Fuerteventura

    Review by: julie neilson

    Weather

    I went in November 1995 and then again in November 1996 and i am going back in July this year it was hot and sunny every day no rain what so ever its a little windy on this island though but it did not affect the temperature at all.

    Holiday

    the sand dunes, beaches and crystal clear blue sea and the cloud free blue sky. its a very relaxing island as it has no big night clubs just a few bars and restaurants but you can still have a good night out. its like been in paradise really. the apartments and hotels are nice with an outdoor pool terrace with sunbeds and drinks and snack bar and a reception area with staff in case the guests require assistance.

  • Fantastic holiday in Fuerteventura

    Review by: kathryn

    Weather

    I went in December in 2012 for two weeks and the weather was fantastic.

    I got a great tan and the evening temperature was just great, not too cold but not roasting hot either.

    Holiday

    My holiday was great although it was a little sad to discover that holiday complex break inns are becoming more frequent.

    Although I would advise that if you get drunk and leave your doors open or unlocked then like the UK your open to opportunist burglary's.

    As for muggings, none take place but again insurance companies seem to be taking a hit by bogus claims.

    Review by: eyes

    Weather

    It was very hot and always felt like 35-37 degrees Celsius.

    Even the odd waves of wind were warm and the evenings would still feel hot.

    Holiday

    Fuerteventura is good enough to feel like your new home!

    You feel the healthy heat as soon as you step off the plane.

    You will not want to go back to the UK.

    The food was very good too!

    The sun would start to set round 8/9ish.

    We only saw a few mosquito%u2019s one day and I was even bitten by one in the leg but lucky there was an on-site nurse. They're not the dangerous ones so nothing to worry about really.

    I would definitely go back and stay at a different resort each time.

  • best beach lovely breeze

    Review by: Andrea Weitzel

    Weather

    The weather was glorious: sunshine each and every day,

    We stayed at Costa Calma for the third year running and the beach is just the best.

    If you want a relaxing break then this is the place to go; if you want more of a busy place, then maybe not as this is still unspoilt and pure.

    Jandia has a good shopping centre, only a short bus ride away. the breeze was most welcomed as so hot and the breeze is warm- a pure delight.

    Holiday

    We have been to Fueterventura three years running now and will keep returning for our relaxing holiday.
    My husband and I both have very busy lives and this is our time together, so we insist on the best places, at a most reasonable price.

  • Corralejo

    Review by: Anonymous

    Weather

    I have been to Corralejo three times and intend going again at end of October 2012. The last visit was in June and, as you would expect, the weather was glorious. Previous two visits were in October and we were not disappointed. A light cardigan at night, if you tend to feel the cold.

    Holiday

    Every time we've been and we step off the plane we just feel so relaxed. I'd read this about Fuerteventura, but didn't know if it was for real, but it really is. We've stayed in three different apartments and have decided to return to Dunas Club near the harbour; so handy with lovely staff.

  • Our Holidays

    Review by: Graham Cheadle

    Weather

    Hot, windy, quiet and relaxing; lovely wide long beaches, safe bathing. Just remember to take or buy plenty of sun cream - please note that even if the sun may be hidden by a rare cloud, you will still burn from U.V Rays, not forgetting the wind burn!

    Holiday

    Fuerteventura is the best place we have visited in Europe: the cleanest, warmest and cheapest place we have found. Very highly recommended. We doubt that you will find anywhere better!

  • My holiday in Fuerteventura

    Review by: Maggie

    Weather

    The weather was most unusual for the time of year, apparently.

    We had cold weather (14C) all week with winds that lessened from gale force at the beginning of the week to breezy at the end.

    Out of the wind, it was warm enough to sit in the sunshine, but it was a case of finding the right spot.

    All the locals apologised for the cold - they felt it more than us!

    We found everyone very friendly and helpful, with the whole island like one big village.

    We'll definitely go again - but will check the temperatures first!

    Holiday

    We stayed in a friend's beautiful villa, overlooking the sea.

    We ate out in various local restaurants and found a large variety of restaurants to suit all tastes.

    We hired a car and toured most of the island, which was fascinating although not too many highlights.

    Normally, we'd have just lazed in the sun, but it was too cold for that, so we explored instead.

  • our holiday in caletadefuste fuertaventura

    Review by: Joeanne Hamilton

    Weather

    The weather was excellent.
    Very warm but there was a breeze that kept it cool.
    At night it could turn a little colder was was very comfortable.
    We always wear a high factor as you can be deceived by the wind factor at times.

    Holiday

    We have already booked up again for August.
    We have found a safe, friendly,holiday destination that ticks all the boxes.
    Our children love it and the people who live there are helpful but not pushy.

  • Oasis Village, Corralejo

    Review by: Shirley Smith

    Weather

    Weather was very very hot most days, but the breezes made it feel comfortable. It actually rained a couple of times but only drizzle and was not a problem. Nights were a little cooler, could not fault it, I dont think you can fail to be impressed with the weather in the Canary Islands.

    Holiday

    Staying at Oasis Village, it was very average, not nearly enough staff around, entertainment quite amateur, daytime activities practically non existent. Beaches around Corralejo are very very nice, exploring rock pools is good, some very nice restaraunts (we were all inclusive but ate out a LOT). Shops are varied and plenty of them.

  • villa holiday caleta de fuste

    Review by: Elaine Palmer

    Weather

    Our first holiday to Fuerteventura, was greeted with surprise, what a lovely relaxing island - that was what the holiday was about to lie read and chill all week.

    The weather in June 09 was glorious, a little cloudy in the mornings, but the sun always came through.

    Holiday

    We stayed in the Vila Rosario on the Turicomplex in Caleta de Fuste, and were pleasantly surprised - a large two bedroom villa with everything anyone would need, the private pool was just great.

    We went down town in the morning, about half a mile for breakfast and to pick up the newspaper, it was cheap to eat breakfast out, lots of competition on the prices. Picked up a light lunch from the supermarket and headed back to our villa for the day.

    I read 5 books that week, and got an amazing sun tan.

    We ate out every evening trying different restaurants, I can't say any one stood out, but we was never dissapointed.

    There was a bar with live acts every night, which we always ended up at, some very good entertainment.

  • Holiday in April

    Review by: Anonymous

    Weather

    The temprature was brilliant, not too hot that you could'nt lay in it and there was a lovely breeze.
    Most mornings it was pretty cloudy but this blew over by about 12noon.
    Its pretty chilly of a night in Fuerterventura so take a jacket!

    Holiday

    Brilliant, stayed in Oasis village hotel on a all inclusive. unlimited snacks drinks and icecream was brilliant!
    We originaly booked to stay in Club Las Olas Hotel, but after one day I arranged to speak to my rep because the hotel was so bad!
    The rep quickly moved us to Oasis Village hotel and we had a excellent time.
    The only thing that i disliked about the hotel is that birds kept flying in the restaurant and landing on the food.

  • My holiday in FUERTEVENTURA

    Review by: Jane Marvell

    Weather

    The weather was fabulous, Not too hot that you couldn't sit (or lay ) in it. If it was cloudy early morning then the sun burned thru with avengence. Windy, but that is typical Fuerteventura.
    Fab all over sun tan in two weeks.
    Great holiday.

    Holiday

    We stayed at Hotel Villas de Sol, just outside Corrallejo so you do need a car to get into Corrie unless you are very keen on keep fit. They are the best accom we have stayed at on the island . Totally self contained and private. Spacious and very clean. If you want night life then you need to go into Corrie.
    It has tv. dvd player washing machine sound centre hairdryer iron and board.
    So you can cut down on what you take.
    Having been to Fuerteventura a few times we are fed up with all the touts along the main street trying to drag you into restaurents. It put us off going along there.

  • Fuerteventura in Winter

    Review by: Anonymous

    Weather

    Ubiquitous cold wind, downpours, showers, some sun, managed to get a tan in 7 days but only by stripping off every time sun came out from behind a cloud. Sky was constantly in motion.
    Great sunsets. I saw the most amazing rainbow whilst doing Quigong on the beach just outside the hotel.

    Holiday

    Best bit of holiday was the hotel. Reluctant to name it in case we go back and it is booked up:) Oh, OK - it was the very attractive Hesperia Bristol, most northerly point of Correlejo. Lovely staff, all requests attended to, if you don't like the location of your well-equipped apartment you can change at any point during your stay, subject to availability.
    Spotlessly clean, a safe-feeling enclosed well lit triangular complex with three interlocking pools and beautifully maintained gardens, a tiny supermarket and a laundry. A different entertainment every night if you wanted - we competed at rifle-shooting and stroked pythons of various sizes, gave performing parrots and karioke a miss. They have a restaurant in the riad-style reception building, but we did self catering (amazing supermarkets in town) and eating out.

  • My Holiday In Fuerteventura at the Jandia princess

    Review by: Stu Rushton

    Weather

    We had 7 days great weather with only 2 afternoons which clouded pver.
    The temperature was around 72 degees all week but when in the sun and out of the wind felt much warmer. got a great tan.

    Holiday

    We have just returned from our 3rd winter break at this hotel.
    Once again the whole holiday has been great.
    We were welcomed with a bottle of Champagne in our room as returning guests. Not a great deal in an all inclusive hotel but it shows some thought has gone into it. We requested (by e-mail) a room in a certain area of the hotel and got exactly the one I asked for. (7301 great views of sea pool area and coast line towards sotavento beach.)I posted a review of this hotel 2 years ago and was amazed when I read some of the reviews on this and other sites regarding the refurbishment of the pool areas. I found that it was done in such a way that it caused little or no problem. There is so much space around the pool area that you can be away from any work area as these were closed off areas anyway.
    This hotel is open all year round so how people expect this routine maintenance to be carried out is beyond me.
    The food is varied and very good it offers a wide range and caters for all tastes.
    People have also commented on how the Germans seem to dominate the place, they are the majority but are not any different than anyone else on holiday there.
    There is an area at the bottom end of the pool areas that is sectioned off and is designated as a naturist area. There is also a sauna and steam room for guests in this area. No one bothers if you go in there keep you shorts or bathing costume on, but some protocol is expected.(sit or lie on a towel with feet on it as well, to absorb sweat) I feel this should be stated at the welcome meeting to save any embarrassment.
    The walk to Jandia is fantastic along the beach. You can feed the chipmunks along the way.
    Jandia is a resort that caters mainly for Germans but a bar with a beer is a bar with a beer.
    The entertainment in the hotel this year was better than last with a Drifters tribute, Tropicana dancers and a comedy Acrobat troop that were good, we gave the Animation teams efforts a miss and enjoyed a beer in the Coco Loco Bar (thanks Eric)
    This hotel is great for anyone looking to chill out and relax for a week. I would not think it would suit teenagers looking for some lively entertainment, but for a winter break it fits the bill to a tee.
