We head south and travel through some scenic sand dine areas and then through some small roads over and through the mountains. There are numerous volcanoes and lava flows in a variety of colours and contrasts of texture.

Historical Traveler Reviews Aparthotel Horizonte Bay Fustes
Okay first things first, when I initially booked my holiday on teletext the first thing I did was look on this website and read some reviews. And to say I was nervous about my planned holiday would have been somewhat of an understatement. There are a lot of bad reviews for this hotel, but my advice to anyone is to keep an open mind before you go and don't have any preconceived notions and you will probably have a better time.
where do i start, i went here with my mum and my little boy and we had 2 weeks of hell.
We returned last week having spent a week there to include New Year. After receiving a very frosty welcome at Reception, where we were kept waiting and even ignored for some time, we found our room was up some unsafe steps to a very basic room with no air conditioning or fan, we couldnt imagine the conditions there July/August when the ambient temperature is much higher!.
After initially being very worried about the location of La Piramide we soon learnt our way around the problems- taxis! At only 3-4 euros per trip into Costa Caleta the problem was soon overcome and we got on with enjoying the rest of our holiday.
Do not stay here if you want: Bad service (or none at all because there are no staff) Sub standard food (that's if you don't like a plate of chips, rice and pasta every night with no veg and suspiciously cooked fish / sometimes meat) , being in the middle of a building site and cats roaming around the complex, drinking out of the pool, and scratching their bits in the dinning area, begging for food and lounging around the bar sprawled on the sofas.
The place is terrible the food is prepared and put on show 2 hours before the resurant is open and then the flies well they just coved the food all the time. no live entertainment despite been showed in the lobby that they would be that night bedding and towels not changed like they say it would it be . 3 robberys look place while we was there in two weeks.the only thing that was nice was the weather .i will never go back again
Not to bad
Like anything in life, you pay for what you get. I am a single dad and along with my son on a tight buget, it was fine. He is five and all he wants is the beach. Because it is cheap there will be staff shortages but we got along O.K It attracts the under 25s on there first holiday but they are unhappy that it really is in the middle of nowhere and on the amount of money they spent on Taxi would have worked out better for then to pay extra. Food is fine and local supermarket is there as a back up. Local beer is p..so again the supermarket and bars are cheap and friendly.
Because it is quiet it really is what I call a good book holiday. If skint again next year, I would go back but heres to winning the lottery.
Just returned from a week in La Piramide - and I'm afraid I have to say I was glad to be home. While the apartment was reasonably clean, it was very basic to say the least. No air conditioning or fans at all - so when the doors were shut at night the place was stifling. The walkways etc. could do with a good wash though, as could the pool area. The place was full of young couples - so if you are over 25 then this is not the place for you. There hardly ever seemed to be any staff around at reception when needed. The food was not bad (but not that good either) - but the dining room was run more like a large works canteen - people coming in for dinner in the evening in bikinis etc. - which is definitely not something I like to see. The complex is the back of beyond, and only one bus per day in to town at 10.30, returning at 5.30. I'm afraid I would not ever be returning to this apartment complex.
La Piramide is in Costa Antigua (fna Nuevo Horizonte) near Caleta de Fuste. It is a nice, well run aparthotel complex, with good facilities. There is a medium-sized, very cold pool, with plenty of sunloungers, table tennis, pool tables and tennis courts (tho I never saw these used, probably because it was too hot). There is a comfortable bar area, as well as a restaurant and minimarket tho we did not use these.
