      Historical Traveler Reviews Villa Florida Fuerteventura

      Fantastic holiday - good value for money

      from

      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

      from

      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

      from

      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

      Good base

      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

      Positives

      Close to the beach, helpful reception.

      Negatives

      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.

      Suggestions

      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.

      Great location

      from

      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....

      Perfect location

      from

      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.

      Great!

      from

      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.

      The Villa Florida apartments were lovely, everthing was so clean, everything we needed was provided and considering we were self caterring, are beds were done at least 4 times in the week and bins chnaged,, towels and toilet rolls replaced and general tidying, very impressed.

      The hotel staffc couldnt have been more helpful and friendly, when we required wake up calls there were no extra costs.

      My hair dryier blew up the first night, i asked about hiring one anfd the next morning one was brought to my room! and i hardly had to pay anything.

      The pool was immaculate cleaned day and night, the whole villas were spotless.

      There is plenty to do and for families and young children it is ideal, and is not to costly. Looks like i will be coming back next year. If anyone would like to see pics, e-mail me at my address mcleele@aol.com.

      I will be more than happy to.

      Definatley go, it was great!

      Not great, but not bad

      from

      Stayed here just before Xmas 2002 for a week. Caleta de Fuste is a nice enough little town with a reasonable beach and a little nightlife. Some good restaurants and bars, but not much else to do.

      Villa Florida is a very short walk from the heart of the town and so is really convenient. There are some complexes on the other side of the main road from the beach which might be a bit quieter.

      The rooms are a bit small and 'musty' - which may be because of the 2 days of rain we had. The bathroom ceiling leaked a little when it rained, but then it rains so rarely that you can forgive them that.

      The kitchen - well it isn't a kitchen for a start. You get a sink, two electric hobs and some crockery/cutlery/pans. No grill, oven, toaster or kettle. You can hire all of that from reception, but isn't that a con?

      Rooms have safes - cash deposit for the key and a nominal rental. They will also rent you hairdryers and irons/ironing boards so no need to drag yours over.

      The pool is OK. I guess the place is great if you've got kids and you want somewhere easy. If you're looking for something a bit different, then this ain't it.

      Oh, hire a car and get out a bit too - it's worth it. The cheapest we found was right next to Villa Florida - Cicar SIXT (not Hertz).

      Also, try and get to Lanzarote - the volcano national park is spectacular.

      Puerto del Rosario

      A travel blog entry by maxieduncan on Jul 10, 2014









      I decided a night in Puerto del Rosario might be good for a change of scene and I had an early flight in the morning. I probably should have listened more to what I'd been told, it's more industrial and not so enjoyable. Still it was a transit stop that helped me get to the airport in plenty of time, the bus being much more efficient than I'd expected.

      Corralejo

      A travel blog entry by maxieduncan on Jul 09, 2014









      Landing at the airport I quickly found that they only had one ATM and it was out of order and there was nowhere to exchange cash. So rather than getting the bus I was lumped with a taxi.

      It was a small bump in what was a chilled five days in the little town of Corralejo in the north of Fuerteventura, one of the Canary Islands. It's a kiteboarding and surfing paradise so not quite my cup of tea but I really enjoyed the laid back vibe ...

Elsewhere in the Canary Islands are two universities, an oceanographic institute, several agricultural and marine research centres and the most important astrophysics institute in the world, thanks to the clarity of the skies. I just read that the island of El Hierro has become the first island in the world to be powered solely by renewable energy (wind and water).

      ... the two quizzes our team had won; we managed to pick up a Fred Olsen Cruise Lines coffee mug.

      In the Neptune Lounge we collected a free glass of ‘champers’ (not so exciting any more when it’s all free) while listening to the Braemar Orchestra. Then Captain ‘Bent Over’ arrived and made a little speech to summarise this cruise; he commented on the weather and sea conditions and remarked that the wind ...

      Our trip is coming to an end and our last port of call is the town of Gran Tarajal on the island of Fuertenventura.We were welcomed on the quayside by a local band, passengers and locals alike dancing and clapping to the rhythms being played.It was only the second time that our ship had visited this town and the residents were genuinely happy to welcome us.
