Windy. Temperature was between 16 and 20 but felt more like 14 because of the ongoing strong wind.
Some rain, one sunny day out of seven :(
The wind is really annoying. It made us feel cold all the time. Luckily we brought enough warm clothes.

Holiday

Chilled holiday, except I got cold on the 3rd day of our holiday, but still tried to visit as many places as possible.

We been going to caleta de fuse for the last 6 years in December for two weeks and we had beautiful weather some days it can be windy and as for rain...it doesn't last long and can usually walk in it and still be dry. A jacket or cardigan is necessary at a night time if you are going out.

Holiday

We loved Fuereventura the first time we went which was in 1992 and went to Coroleco which is 45 minutes from the airport and back then it wasn't so built up and was lovely and the people were friendly.

We've been back once and found it too big for us now. We wanted something quiet which we found with Caleta de Fuse and it is only 9 miles from airport and it such a lovely place. The beach and harbour is shaped like a horse shoe lovely hotels there and plenty of restaurants, the ones we like is The Great Wall of China, The Angus Steak Bar plus The Dog and Duck is very well priced.

I would recommend this place to anyone .

Places Recommended

If you hire a car go down to Jander it about a 2 hour drive through beautiful country side and worth a visit to see its light house and the beach. On the way there is a parrot park with camels and if you go to Caleta de Fuse there is chipmonks for you to feed. There is only a few now years ago there was hundreds of them.

Another thing I recommend is for you to go and see Harvey the seal in the harbour.

Have been for the past 4 years and have only had the occasional drop of rain and that has mainly been either early morning or the evening, but not enough to spoil our holiday.

Absolutely and totally brilliant. We go year after year. This will be our 5th year. We love the island and the lazy way of life.
Jandia is nice and quite. If you want night life then this is not the place for you. If you require a bit more life then you should try Corrallo.

Very hot in July, was there during the World Cup football, very friendly and very good in all and also very nice along the beach and cafes.

Going back in November.

Holiday

Stayed in Barcelo Jandia Playa Hotel it was very good and the staff were very helpful.

We have been there 5 times now, and we are always looked after very well. The beaches are very clean and most hotels have there own private beach. Nightlife in the hotel is good.

Places Recommended

Safari park

You will have to go to the south of the Island beaches for African markets. They are very cheap but you must barter with them to get a good deal.

Watch out for some of the Africans ladies they grab you and put on a bralet then ask you for money.

Amazing.
Been for last 10 years over every month except July, all year round best weather.
One or two showers during their "winter months" average rainfall (mostly showers) 12-16 days PER YEAR.
The odd day of more persistent rain, but overall, nothing to create about.

Holiday

Always excellent.
Weather plays a big part.
Have a small bungalow in Caleta de Fuste. Less than 10 minutes travel from the airport, so no long transfers.

Places Recommended

Betancuria, up in the mountains, long journey up the mountain road, but a lovely little old village.
Puerto del Rosario for the Las Rotundas shopping centre and lovely harbour area.
El Cotillo for the beautiful beach. Gran Tarajal, La Lajita, Costa Calma, Jandia, all lovely places and many inland villages.
Corraleyo with the big water park and yacht harbour - lots of harbour restaurants and bars.
Of course Caleta itself, lots of facilities and restaurants/bars/entertainment.

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).

Places Recommended

It is very good to rent the car and to walk the entire island because everywhere there are interesting beaches and wonderful places with amazing views.
I recommend visiting Betancuria, Jandia beach where you can socialize and feed squirrels that are very close and friendly people.
Also seen Cofete area-spectacular protected area-recommended visit by car.
Very pleasant is to swim with the seals –this is possible in Caleta de Fuste from what I know.

When staying in Fuerteventura its worth hiring a car, as you will be surprised by the lovely villages inland.

We are returning May 2014, and have already booked for September 2015,

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.

Places Recommended

explore the island its worth it as its a great island and the best place to visit if you have kids is chipmunk mountain as they come and take food from your hands.

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.

Places Recommended

Do go to Porta Del Rossario and explore the island either by car or coach as it's well worth it.

Try eating out instead of in your complex all the time, the restaurants do have a good selection of food and it is always fresh.

Even the chip loving Brits can get basic English food at all the local bars and restaurant's.
Or try Spanish food as it's great!

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.

Places Recommended

Anywhere on the island!

Drive along the FV-2 COASTLINE and visit all areas.

The yellow dessert near Corralojo, Gran Tarajal, Costa Calma, Caleta de Fuste are all good places to visit.

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.

Places Recommended

Costa Cama beach is the best.
Jandia for shopping and bars,
Costa Calma has a couple of bars but that is all so don't go if it's night life you are after

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.

Places Recommended

5th Avenue restaurant is excellent and for a drink, Champions Bar or Rosie Grady's. There are lots to choose from that are fantastic, but these are our favourites.

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!

Places Recommended

The best resort by far is Costa Caletta: some class it as a pensioners' resort, but others, such as us, do not, even though we are pensioners of 71 years young.

There is plenty to do for both young and old, the resort is by far the cleanest place we have ever been to on the European continent, food is cheap as are all the beers and lagers. The best hotel we have found is 'Blue Sea Caletta Gardens': the rooms are very clean, very adequate and large; you can choose from single beds to very comfortable doubles; and you can have either self catering, half board, or all inclusive. Our next visit will be our 5th to this resort.

There are plenty of coastal walks and also walks up into the mountains. You can also feed some of the wildlife along the cliff tops, such as the ever so friendly 'chipmunks' who will take monkey nuts out of the palm of your hand!

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.

Places Recommended

The dunes near Corralejo.

Avoid the world's most expensive toilets at Betancuria! One euro - yes, even for you, chaps!

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.

Places Recommended

Lanzarote for a day trip, Corralejo Harbour quite beautiful, even at night. Baku Water Park is not recommended, neither is the market there (on Mondays and Fridays), you can buy stuff cheaper in local shops.

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.

Places Recommended

We never travelled the island, just lay and read, but we had a good walk round the coast and managed to spot the chipmunks on the rocks, amazing.

We relaxed and chilled so much, we are now returning for our second visit, October 09, but are going to try Corralejo, will let you know how it goes.

Must say the climate really suited us, and the breeze was very welcome.

The temprature was brilliant, not too hot that you could'nt lay in it and there was a lovely breeze.

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.

Places Recommended

Lanzarotte on a boat trip.
I think it was about 50 euros, it glass bottom boat stops on the reefs and you can see all the tropical fish and dolphins.
We even saw a Sperm Whale!
Excellent day out

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.

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.

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.

Places Recommended

We found a restaurant La somethingorother Del Pescadores (sorry:) at the north end of the harbour which had massive plates of delicious tapas and friendly staff, and went back three times after trying other uninspiring places.
Went go-karting in Calete del Fuste.
Also jet skiing in Correlejo harbour, very well supervised and a whole CD of pics offered at the end.
Swam on beach in the dunes near Riu hotels. Lovely clean turquoise water.

Went to Los Lobos island, great glass-bottomed boat with all round visibility.

Long drive down to Morro Jable and Jandia beaches, probably great in high summer for swimming but we bought ice-creams, swapped our hire car which had developed a fault on the trip down, and drove straight back, hard to understand why so many people recommend it - soulless. Drove through the volcanos in the south, terrific views westwards.

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.
