This small island northeast of Fuerteventura is a protected unspoilt area and has a single village, El Puertito. The clear water is full with so many colourful reef fish and bigger ugly monsters lurking!! Craig won't get in for a swim! ( Shark stories from Tom( his dad) as a child :)) Well at least I was brave and had a ...
... Costa Antigua the local town is still very much in its infancy and there are not many restaurants that appeal to us so, after considerable searching, we return to the hotel, pick up the car, and end up in Calleta de Fuste at a very pleasant restaurant. The second evening we walk to the restaurant via a new coastal footpath. It takes us about 45 minutes to get there but we get a taxi ...
... the sunshine. David goes off for an exploratory walk whilst Marjory enjoys her half hour swim. We go for a wander around the resort and find quite a few good looking restaurants to choose from for dinner.
We choose a restaurant in the square for dinner and enjoy a good meal whilst listening to a
live group with a good female singer.
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 far enough ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Globales Costa Tropical Fuerteventura
Loved the hotel
We went to the Costa Tropical in September 2006 for 2 weeks. We enjoyed every minute of it. The rooms were basic but we only slept in them. The food was very good and a good variety. The staff were very friendly and helpfull especially Natallie, Emillie, Maria, Sharon and Rubin on reception. It could do with a bit of updating. The hotel is in the middle of nowhere but we wanted a quite and relaxing holiday so it was fine. It is within walking distance of Caletta and buses and taxis are very cheap. A very good holiday and we would go back.
Acabo de regresar de uno barato reservado por medio de Teletext, con mi marido, hija (7 años) y bebé (18 meses). El hotel es adorable. Las camareras de piso limpiaban todo el lugar diariamente, estaba impecable, la piscina era enorme con bastantes tumbonas y una piscina para bebés (de nuevo, impecable), las habitaciones eran de buen tamaño y todas tenían vista al mar y a la piscina. A 5 minutos de traslado desde el aeropuerto, que después de un vuelo de 4 horas y 10 minutos ¡era maravilloso!
Acabo de regresar de unas vacaciones de 7 noches, equipadas, por medio del internet. Con todo, las instalaciones eran muy promedio. Está bien para usarlo como base (¡en el medio del nuevo complejo!) y tiene una piscina enorme. Te recomiendo que alquiles un coche y que salgas a pasearte por ahí. Hay servicio de transporte gratuito desde el hotel hasta la playa local Caleta De Fuste. El servicio era muy rápido al principio, pero para el final de la semana, el autobús de regreso de la playa al hotel ¡nunca apareció! Aunque los taxis son muy frecuentes, por alrededor de 3 euros, desde la ciudad al hotel. Comimos fuera la mayoría de las noches en la ciudad, en sólo algunos lugares, todos con buena relación calidad-precio. No probamos el bar del hotel ni el bufé, pero escuchamos que la comida estaba un poco desalentadora :-(
Just back from a 7 night, self-catering, internet holiday. All in all, very average accomdation. Its fine to use as a base (in the middle of new development!) and it does have a massive swimming pool. Recommend hiring a car and getting out and about. There is a free shuttle bus from the hotel to the local beach in Caleta De Fuste. The service was very prompt as first, but towards the end of the week, the return bus from the beach to the hotel didn't turn up! Taxi's though are really frequent, about 3 Euros, from town to the hotel. We eat out most nights in town, only a few places, all good value though. We didn't use the hotel bar or buffet, but heard the food was a little grim :( Recommend Correlljo, Jandia and Betancuria (in mountains) as great days out, fantastic beachs and views. Good mini supermarket, on-site, well stocked, if you fancy cooking!!?? Overall 6/10 for accomodation, clean, basic, a little tired looking. 8/10 for sun, beaches and relaxation! It is * to ** star hotel remember!!
Ho soggiornato in questo aparthotel nella prima settimana di agosto, acquistando da Todomondo un conveniente pacchetto volo + pernottamento + noleggio auto. Il resort si trova a Nuevo Horizonte, un paio di chilometri a nord della località turistica di Caleta de Fuste e dalla spiaggia di El Castillo e qualche chilometro a sud dell'aeroporto di Puerto del Rosario. La clientela è internazionale. Il mare è visibile dalle terrazze degli appartamenti, ma non è raggiungibile a piedi; è a disposizione dei clienti una navetta gratuita che porta alla spiaggia di El Castillo. Suggerisco questa sistemazione soltanto come base per esplorare l'isola di Fuerteventura con un mezzo proprio e in autonomia, mentre la sconsiglio senza dubbio per una vacanza stanziale ed esclusivamente balneare, in quanto il resort è piccolo, isolato dai centri di divertimento e con un'animazione pressoché inesistente. Ottima soluzione invece per chi volesse conoscere le Canarie orientali in libertà, in quanto l'aparthotel è in posizione centrale sull'isola (comoda per raggiungere sia le dune di Corralejo a nord che le magnifiche spiagge della Penisola di Jandia a sud) e riunisce tutti i vantaggi di un appartamento (indipendenza, autonomia nei pasti, tranquillità) ai comodi servizi di un hotel (pulizie giornaliere con cambio biancheria, reception, piscina, minimarket, telefoni pubblici, sportello ATM). Inoltre, per chi lo desideri, in loco è possibile scegliere la formula mezza pensione, pensione completa o all inclusive; non ho informazioni sulla qualità della cucina perché non ho mai usufruito del servizio ristorante. Alcuni appartamenti sono nell'edificio principale, altri sono dislocati in più spaziosi e tranquilli bungalow a due piani.
we arrived at this hotel about 10pm the reception was fine a good check in and really friendly staff we were on the second floor room 229 over looking the pool area and tennis courts which were good, the room was very spacious and kept clean the only probs was the uncomfy beds which did creek alotand there was a little bit of rust at the bottom of the bath but it was nothing too unsightly and the shower was ok.
I would like to write an honest opinion of this hotel, as it is always nerve racking when you dont know a resort.
I'm only back from a cheapie booked through teletext with my husband, daughter (7) and baby (18 mths).
