Today I was doing my third sea dive to get my open water diving licence. We were doing a shore dive with my dive instructor Damion. I walked into the sea brrrr it was cold. When we went in I inflated my bcd (buoyancy control device ) so I could float while putting my flippers on and doing the first skill I towed the teacher in training by the tank valve as one of our skills. Then when we were ...

But once again Brahma replied, "No, that will not do either, because they will eventually climb every mountain and once again take up their divinity." Then the gods gave up and said, "We do not know where to hide it, because it seems that there is no place on earth or
in the sea that human beings will not eventually reach."
Brahma thought for a long time ...

I was also greeted with the response, ¨You are from Canada??? Canadaaaa!¨ each time that I told locals where I was from and it made me feel quite exotic haha. I don´t think they get Americans or Canadians visiting there very often at all, and it was mostly a mix of German, French, Dutch, English and Irish people. The Canaries is ...

I particularly love the attractions designed by Cesar Manrique, (Monumento al Campesino, Jameos del Agua, Jardin de Cactus, etc and his own house which is now the Cesar Manrique Foundation), who has had an amazing impact upon the appearance of the island, and helped to prevent ugly, unplanned development.

Historical Traveler Reviews Villa Florida Fuerteventura
Fantastic holiday - good value for money
We had a lovely holiday at Villa Florida in April 2006. The apartment was very clean and spacious with a large balcony which we used all the time. The apartments are near to everything - restaurants and shops and a good market and the beach is only a few minutes walk away- it was nice and safe for the chidren as the water doesn't get too deep until you go right out. The swimming pool was very clean and had a lovely childrens section for our little boy. We ate in the bar a couple of times and the food was really good. We would definately reccomend the Villa Florida apartments and are hoping to go again next year.
Value for money
Booked flights and apartments separtley- worked out cheaper, cleaned every day apart form sundays, yes basic but clean, kettle and toaster provided. pool bar served good food and provided a quizz and bingo at lunch times and evening entertainment. excellent location, good for couples and young families. would go back.
Good Value Good Location - All round very good
We stayed here for a week in April. The weather was very good. The apartments were a good size and cleaned regularly. For some the resort its self may be a bit small but for us (couple) it was just right. Not far from the airport only about 20 mins. The bar on site is ok, staff are very friendly and provide good service. The green restaurant next door is very good with Spanish guitar music in the evenings. We also hired a car and went to the sand dunes, the resort there is a lot busier. A little market in Caleta on Sundays, which has the normal tourist stuff. All round good accommodation and nice resort, would recommend to families and couples, not for you if you want an all night party
Stopped here for one week.Very quite & clean.Take a sweat shirt as it very cold at night in the app & resort .Television a rip off at 1euro a hr viewing.
Enjoyed the walks along the front even though the weather was poor.Suggest stopping halfboad as food not cheap.
As long as you got it cheap
Close to the beach, helpful reception.
Limited kitchen facilities (just two rings), towels smelled, were stained and were fraying, bath was tiny, hot water was from a small tank so you have to plan showers. You pay for the TV, to hire toasters and irons. No entertainment provided, just the basic bar (run separately). Our Balcony did not get much sun during the day.
Take washing up liquid, and cloth.
We paid £450 each for a week over xmas, just flights and self catering accomodation. In my opinion the facilities were not worth the money.
when we pulled up outside at 11pm we thought to ourselves 'OH NO' but on checking in we went to our room which was in a great location .the said room was spacious enough for the four of us albeit a little bit basic 'no fans ,no oven,no kettle ,no toaster 'just the two rings but enough for what we wanted. The only gripe was the bathroom which was a bit tatty but we all showerd and didnt bathe so it was ok .Towels do stink when wet so bring your own. caletta is in my opinion the best part of the island by far ,great places to eat, pepe's just next door was fantastic, red lion pool bar great .All in all we had a great holiday its not the ritz but it is not the pits . We would return but not in august very very hot and lots of burnt people....
villa florida is situated in a perfect location for all the amenities.
The beach is 5 minutes away. Bars, restaurants and entertainment everywhere. Apartments clean but a little damp if not south facing as you dont get so much sun. The staff where helpful and although the usual problems with livestock, spray was obtained from reception which cured the problem. The pool was clean but not heated therefore it needed to be extremely hot to venture in. On the whole a good base.
The location is great, in my experience the Villa Florida apartments were not. The rooms were shabby, the bath was rusty, the bedroom smelled damp and musty and it was a waste of time buying any food which could not be stored in the fridge due to mite/bug infestation. In defence of the apartments another couple we spoke to did not have these problems, (though we did think they were a bit mad!) The pool area was kept beautifully clean and tidy but the pool was very cold. We used 'Tropic' car rental which was very good and cheap too. The best restaurant we found was the Mona Lisa, the atmosphere was very relaxed and it was airy, spacious and the food was good. Corralejo was geared up for tourists. The Jandia beaches are beautiful and definately worth the hours drive. A must for art lovers is the 'Centro de Arte' in La Oliva, a really nice place with very helpful staff. Finally, a good family day out is the 'Oasis Park' near Costa Calma, the reptile show is impressive (no babies involved just alligators!) I would definately return to Fuerte but not to Villa Florida.
I read a previous review of this hotel before i went and it had me a little worried! what was the person talking about! I loved it here, I stayed for a week and i did not want to leave.
