General Comments
Myself and my girlfriend visited this hotel in March 2003 and booked for a week through Thomas Cook direct. When we arrived at the Barcelo we were very impressed, it looks like a first class hotel and when you walk inside you realise that it is. The reception is ultra modern with loads of funky seating areas and marble and wood flooring which gives the impression of a 5*. When checking in the reception staff were excellent, speaking very good English. When we arrived at our room we found it to be exactly how it looked in the brochure, absolutley lovely with huge, huge beds!! The view off the balcony was superb with views overlooking the pool and beach. You also get a big bathroom and a mini bar which i made alot of use of!! After we unpacked we went for a wonder round the hotel to get our bearings, believe me this hotel is massive! The pools were great, the smaller ones cold but the main one was heated and has a jacuzzi bath in the corner. The evening entertainment team were great with loads of professional acts on like chinese acrobats and magic shows and tribute bands. My favourate was the tribute to the four tops, they were fantastic and got a standing ovation at the end! The food at the hotel was great, buffet style restraunt with a massive selection of meat and veg cooked to a very high standard, the chefs even cook in front of you so you can have your steak cooked exactly how you want it!!



The resort of Caleta is small but very picturesque and has a couple of good bars, our best was the Cavern bar which plays live music by the owner from about 7 till 1am and the atmosphere is brilliant, cheap cocktails too!! The beach in the resort is small and in my oppinion not all that, my advise is that you book a car for a couple of days as you can pick up some really good prices, we hired an open top jeep for three days and cost us only £110. We went to correlejo which has an excellent beach with ice white sand and clear waters, but if you want beautiful scenery and even better beaches head down to the area of Jandia, miles upon miles of gorgouse beaches!!

All in all had a fantastic time at the Barcelo hotel, I can't recommend it highly enough, and Fuerteventura is absolutley stunning.......go there....go on!!!
