"Clean apartments bedding and towels changed regularly no kettle or toaster no iron or ironing board but your on your hols just make do we used the microwave for boiling water downside it's like an Olympic sport getting a lounger in the morning we found people putting towels on at 6 in the morning. I think they should be chained up as the maids struggle to clean the pool around them. At least if this was the case we would all have a fair chance when unlocked. Great holiday clean and friendly we are returning next year you get what you pay for. "

Go to the Barcelo's
"Fuerteventura is a lovely place for a chilled out relaxing holiday.It was warm and sunny all the time we were there. Could get chilly at night. Tried several times to get in the sea but it is very chilly (time of year)
Blue sea Garden (aparth hotel) were we were to have our meals is absolutley appalling.Lettuce was brown, food was cold and tasteless, boiled eggs were green. After a couple of meals we gave up and provided our own food or ate out. The serving staff were flicking the tables and spreading crumbs all over the floor.
As I was eating my first course the breakfast toasters were being set up. It truly was awful.
The apartments were ok. Noisy beds though and hard and uncomfertable.
My advice book the Barcelo's in the area they are lovley. "

"good location.close to amenities. basic rooms need of update. 2 electric rings plus microwave. very poor if you want to eat in. rooms cleaned and bedding changed every 2 days. would not recommend half board, you have to walk 500mts to caleta gardens hotel for meals.(see review for this hotel)

Our visit to Puerto Caleta apartments
"Just returned from these apartments and firstly need to warn you that there is no kettle or toaster in the kitchen!. Went to reception to ask about this and was told we could hire them for 16 euros each!!. No way were we going to pay for something that should be supplied in all self catering apartments. We got a kettle after asking to speak to the manager and was not charged. We had a first floor apt as we wanted the privacy of a balcony and not be overlooked like the lower ones were. Having said that the location was perfect, with bars,restaurants and a supermarket just stones throw away. The pool area was good with plenty of space and sunbeds thou we didnt use it much ourselves as we prefer the beach. The "Noddy Train" well worth using to see around the resort without having to walk, and only cost 2 euros for a round trip."

You get exactly what you pay for.....
"Just back from Puerto Caleta Apartment in Caleta De Fuste, fun, sun, sea, sand, music, shows,...either in center or within 10 minutes stroll. Lord Nelson pool bar/food all day with nightly entertainment, tapas bar downstairs with nightly shows, Barcelo across road nightly shows, buffet dinner in Antigua and Puerto Hotel, all 5 minutes away. Downtown nightly music/disco/very adult clubs, some run to 06.00. So really something to suit all! We only made coffee in-house and had very reasonable meals out as we were on hols! Do visit La Banca del Pescador for a night to remember if you love fine dining but cheap as chips, Garry looked after us on our many nights there. Apartments very basic but we could have gone upmarket and paid double, we got what we paid for. At reception Thaise and Vanessa were on hand to help and assist in any way possible! Only downside no boutique shopping on Island?
Go for it and enjoy the fun!!!!!!!"

Costa Del Crime
"Just returned from here and am now under the doc for my nerves.
Had an intruder midway through the week. Moroccan rat. Saw him at the bottom of my bed. He took my friends handbag and mine but there wasn't much in them I screamed and he scarpered.
When we got to reception the following morning I was asked if a handbag was mine, alas some other poor bugger had been done over.
We moved to the sister hotel (as told to us by the regulars that go there) The rep from Cosmos tried to sell us 3 nights at some other place. We moved in a 3rd floor apartment in the Caleta Gardens and there were break ins there on the 1st floor. On the last day a death! Could have been natural causes. We don't know yet. I would definately NOT go back here.
A lot of Brits know the problems but still go back!
Reps and hoteliers are covering it up. No security here at all, locks tatty. Don't go"

"Just back from Puerto Caletta. Only went for 4 nights, but really enjoyed it. Room a little basic, but very clean and tidy. The pool area is very good. The lovely lady at reception could not do enough. The Nelson bar needs a lick of paint, but still very nice. 'Elvis' was in the building on Thursady and gave us a fab night. Looking forward to going there again. The local area is also very good. Carl Buttigieg

"We never stay at the apts.but we always use the bar facilities at the Lord Nelson.
Greg,Kat and Dan will always give you a warm welcome.
The entertainment is good and steve and michelle the regular singers will entertain you on a thursday and saturday.
Barbie night is a monday followed by more entertainment and shots.
Food is available throughout the day and the bar is well stocked with various drinks.
All in all a great place to relax."

an OK place
"needs abit of money spent on the whole complex to improve things. loungers very worn, apart from a few new ones that the same (VERY) early risers got towels on every morning, not happy with that, they had one on top of another for extra comfort, leaving others without a lounger at all.Only about 4 sun brollies to be found and quess what, the people with the decent loungers got these also.The pool table nearby was a disgrace and should have been scrapped along time ago, shame as theres not alot to do for families and this would have relieved there boredom.The poolside bar run by greg and katrina is ok but not for kids,and the regulars who go back year after year get pref treatment, even though they are spoiling other peoples holidays.Never before have we witnessed so many sun loungers with towels on them before daylight.The apartments are tired looking but clean and ok.There should be some sort of security on at night but we didnt see any, these apartments have history of breakins and the week we arrived someone had a problem,but in fairness he was asleep on his balcony with the doors left unlocked.Two sets of doors to lock and if you use them think you will be ok.a problem with loud noise from the bar till late, but worse,after they have closed with revellers outside the bar not wanting to go home.all in all, we would go back but it wouldnt be our first choice,it was cheap and ok"

Very relaxing holiday
"These apartments are basic but very clean and maid service excellent, any problems, dealt with quickly.We found no problems with security, and had a great poolside apartment. The pool area very clean just a nice size, only complaint on that would be not enough umbrellas. The pool bar is the only thing that lets this place down, not a place I would reccomend, found it not very clean and drinks expensive only went in the once. Entertainment rubbish.The complex itself is perfect and idealy placed for all parts of the town. "
