... it for 10 days, enduring the inconvenience of no internet, instead frequenting a café 20 minutes’ walk away and the local hotel’s library and courtyard to gain WiFi access. There was a beautiful pool, plenty long enough for length-swimming, though cool water, and I was able to get some good exercise – and usually had the pool to myself. I’m not one for lying in the sun, but I managed to lightly roast my back ...

Gran Tarajal, Fuerteventura

... clams, mussels, squid, smoked salmon and sushi before going back to refill my plate, this time with half a lobster, some crab claws, shell-on prawns and langoustines. It was scrumptious and what better to wash it down than with a glass of (free!) chilled Freixenet cava. Lush! :-)

Fed and watered, we then went up on deck at the stern of the Braemar to see what the weather was like. It wasn’t too bad on the lee side of the ...

The southern tip of Fuerteventura

A travel blog entry by davidandmarjory

We are warmly welcomed at the hotel for our 5 night all inclusive stay. Our room is very spacious with an excellent balcony and sea views. The hotel is set in beautiful gardens.

We spend the next few days relaxing locally and travelling around the southern tip of Fuerteventura.

Two days to visit the central mountains area

A travel blog entry by davidandmarjory

... 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 ...

    Sunrise Club Paraiso Playa Abril 2006

    from

    Mi familia -dos adultos y dos niños (de 11 y 8 años)- nos quedamos aquí 2 semanas durante las vacaciones de Pascua. El hotel era muy bonito pero aislado, las tiendas, bares y restaurantes están aproximadamente a unos 5 Km. de paseo por la playa de Jandia. El hotel tenía una pequeña tienda que vendía productos pero a un precio muy alto. El hotel es de estilo "todo-incluido", de modo que puedes comer y beber lo que quieras todo el día. Mientras estábamos allí éramos la única familia inglesa en el hotel (principalmente alemanes). Al principio los niños tardaron en adaptarse pero fueron al club para niños y pronto se hicieron amigos de unos niños alemanes. No tuvimos ningún problema con los alemanes, de hecho eran muy agradables y educados. El equipo de actividades era fantástico con los niños, se los llevaba por la mañana y tarde y después había sesiones de mini disco y juegos por las tardes. Además, hablaban inglés con nuestros niños. Las actividades por las noches estaban muy bien, había espectáculos etc. y la mayor parte era en inglés. Nos quedamos en una suite de familia que era fantástica, los niños estaban en una habitación separada, el baño era también espacioso. La comida era muy buena, con opciones variadas, había siempre algo diferente para probar. La playa era preciosa y a pesar de los escalones; desafortunadamente en nuestra segunda semana hacía mucho viento y venían ráfagas con arena así que nos tuvimos que quedar en la piscina. El hotel vale la pena si no te importa el hecho de que tal vez seas la única familia inglesa.

    Great All Inclusive Hotel

    My wife and I have just recently returned from our holiday to the Sunrise Club Paraiso Playa on the Island of Fuerteventura. This was our only holiday this year and we decided all we wanted was a quiet relaxing place to chill out with no hassles. That is exactly what we got with this hotel.

    He vuelto del hotel Sunrise Beach Paraiso Playa con mi novia. ¡Qué fantásticas vacaciones tuvimos! El hotel está situado en un acantilado encima de la playa pero cuidado, que como dice una crítica aquí, realmente hay 103 escalones a la playa, los conté cada vez que subía y bajaba, pero ese es el único inconveniente de este hotel. El hotel tiene un 95% de alemanes y un 2% de ingleses pero no era nunca un problema, el "todo incluido" es fantástico, ¿en qué otra parte puedes echarte tu mismo la cerveza en una selección de bares esparcidos por todo el hotel? lo mismo con el vino, lo único que necesitas pedir son los cócteles!!! Y nunca hay cola, es un paraíso para alcohólicos ( no es que yo sea uno pero casi me vuelvo!) la comida te la servían y estaba siempre caliente y había para todos) Las piscinas estaban muy limpias y había cientos de tumbonas, más que suficientes para nosotros, el 2% de ingleses. Las actividades eran fantásticas también, aunque no tenemos hijos, vimos que los niños lo pasaban muy bien antes de que la diversión nocturna empezara, que de nuevo era excelente. La playa en sí era- si, hay bajar esos 103 escalones- preciosa, con agua transparente color turquesa y unos 10 Km. en ambas direcciones, había muchos nudistas por allí pero una vez que has visto uno, ya no te fijas más. Para terminar con el personal del hotel, realmente se desvivían por ayudar y sin duda volveremos en octubre este año.

    Sunrise Club Paraiso Playa

    Ausgezeichnet

    from

    Komme gerade mit meiner Freundin vom Sunrise Beach Hotel Paraiso Playa zurück und wir haben einen klasse Urlaub gehabt. Das Hotel ist direkt auf einer Klippe über dem Strand gelegen und vorsicht, wie schon in einer anderen Kritik hier gesagt wurde, es sind wirklich 103 Stufen zum Strand hinunter. Ich kann es bestätigen, ich habe sie jedes Mal gezählt, wenn ich hoch und runterlief, aber das ist auch der einzige Nachteil vom Hotel.

    Meine Familie, 2 Erwachsene und 2 Kinder (11&8) waren für 2 Wochen über Ostern hier. Das Hotel war nett aber abgelegen, die nächsten Geschäfte, Bars und Lokale waren in Jandia, einen circa 3 Meilen langen Fußweg am Strand entlang. Das Hotel hatte einen kleinen Laden, der Annehmlichkeiten verkaufte, aber zu einem hohen Preis. Das Hotel ist all inklusive, sodass Ihre Getränke und das Essen den ganzen Tag über erhältlich sind.

    Returned from Sunrise Beach Hotel Paraiso Playa with my girlfriend and what a wonderful holiday we had.

    Definitely worth a try

    from

    As an experiment, we (Mum, Dad, Grandma, Grandad and 3 year old boy), thought we would go all inclusive to the Sunrise Club Paraiso Playa in the southern end of Fuerteventura for the first 3 days of our 10 day break in April (we normally goto Caleta). We considered this to be a good spot for nipping into Jandia and along to Costa Calma. After an hour self-drive from the airport, we were welcomed enthusiastically at the hotel (something we don't normally see when being herded on and off the bus...) Although seeming to perch on the cliff tops from a distance, once inside, the hotel is very comfortable. The restaurant and entertainments area are centrally located, but noise doesn't filter out to the accomodation areas - a good sleep was had by all, every night. The rooms were lovely - all but the ground floor have sea views. Several pool areas were available, all with a sun trap here or there. Food was excellent - especially breakfast on the veranda overlooking the sea (advise jumper!). Entertainment was basic but very 'entertaining'! - the staff did their best! Beach was down the famous 103 steps, which may put some off... However, we found a small road down to the beach cafe and carpark just around the corner. Also, the steps zig zagged down the sand dune cliff and were not steep (they had many horizontal sections). This meant Grandma and Grandad weren't put off. The thin beach at the bottom of the sand dune clif was certainly spectacular, but wouldn't recommend swimming there due to rocks in the water. However, a 200m stroll along the shore past the cafe brings you to a lovely stretch with sand underfoot quite away into the water. The best thing for us has to be the childrens' entertainment... Although our 3 yr old was too young for the club, the disco in the evening (conveniently started at 19:30 - directly after our meal at 18:30), consisted of lots of shouting and dancing to begin with, then quietened down to a lulaby with Mums and Dads sitting in a big circle and child on their lap - a nice touch - this was the queue for most youngsters to go to bed - and it did the trick! Also, the kiddies play area is 'challenging'! (but safe) - Mums and Dads can sit by one of the pools, with youngsters playing and the bar just around the corner (recommend this activity for at least one afternoon!). This wouldn't be an accurate summary without a mention of Snr Pascal (hotel manager), who made it his business to come round and chat during evening meals and who was the star in Saturday night fever! This was the icing on the cake for our party... the general feeling of welcome. I haven't mentioned until now the fact that we were the only British there, with all other guests being German. The language barrier was not an issue for us, we like to 'have a go' and it seems nearly all guests were just as eager to try out their English! Agreed this situation would be slightly off putting for some, but Snr Pascal informs us the hotel will be taking on MyTravel customers starting later in the year and anyway, the other guests we met were great people. Would thoroughly recommend stopping here for a few days if you fancy holidaying 'off the beaten track' (for Brits), but go soon... It may not be the same later on in the year - although I suspect Snr Pascal will ensure it is...

    We had enjoyed our previous stay in this area at "The Occidental Grand" and it seemed that Sunrise Club Pariaso were offering an excellent value holiday to a hotel of a similar standard.
