A great hotel for a very relaxing holiday
We arrived on the 13th March 2020 for a lovely relaxing holiday. The hotel is just perfect with a kite school and wind surfing available near by and then miles of wonderful sandy beach to take a lovely peaceful walk along going towards Jandia nothing but sand and a few birds to look out for along the way just heavenly, away from everything. We booked into a Level room 946 a great room with a good size balcony with sun loungers and that great sea view. The room was very clean lovely comfortable beds with choice of pillows great nights sleep. good clean bathroom with free toiletries and clean towels changed when needed. We ate at the Oasis restaurant for all our meals where they served a great selection of foods, all the chefs and waiting team were very friendly and helpful . The hotel has a huge salt water swimming pool lovely to swim in plus other pools to use. lots of sun loungers, and shady spots. all set in pretty gardens there is so much to do if you want to. But unfortunately it was all taken away from us when Spain went into lock down. We had 3 lovely days at the hotel then it all changed. But the hotel staff were all amazing trying to keep going as best they could. Our easy jet flight home was cancelled. The reception staff were very kind to us helping us to find new flights back to the UK. They were truly amazing without there help and understanding we would probably still be on the island . When the hotel reopens it is a wonderful hotel to enjoy a peaceful relaxing holiday away from busy resorts great for good food and great hospitality, relaxing with a good book, lovely walks and as much or as little as you wish to do. We would like to go back one day.
A place you can Relax and Chillout!
We have just enjoyed our 4th return visit to the Melia Fuerteventura and enjoyed yet again another week away from the hectic life of the UK. The location is excellent and is ideally suited for those who just want to chill out and enjoy the open space, sea, sand, sun and wind. The hotel was very clean and the Staff excellent. A special thank you goes out to the GEX Manager who surprised us both with a dual birthday present. To Tracy and Ivan who made our stay so welcoming plus facilitating a last minute room change and finally to all the ever helpful staff within The Level restaurant who made every visit so enjoyable. Thank you once again to everyone at the Hotel who made our stay ever so welcoming and we will be returning again in 2021 to the Melia Fuerteventura, Ian and Dianne.
We booked through jet2, and what we thought we’d booked, didn’t transpire. This is the fault of the website, NOT the hotel. We decided to upgrade to ‘The Level’. Worth every penny to upgrade! Loads of added extras! But let’s break down the nuts and bolts. •Beds - very comfortable, with a choice of pillows (when upgraded). •Room - very clean, and high spec appliances. Free mini bar with upgrade. •Food - upgraded restaurant offers a range of freshly cooked meats and fish, with well prepared fresh salad. Amazing desserts and fresh fruits. Lots of high quality wine, spirits and beer on offer. •Pools - 4 cleaned PROPERLY everyday. Spotless. •Grounds - immaculate. •Beach - astonishing beach, and when the tide comes in, there’s around 200m of shallow water to play in. Great for the sports enthusiast. •Staff - every member of staff is very friendly, and super helpful! A credit to the hotel. •There’s also tennis courts, gym, kids club, spa and hot tubs. •Would we return? Absolutely yes! We are planning our return very soon! •Tips - if you like to explore, hire a car! This hotel is nowhere near anything. You can hire a small car for around €100 a week. There’s a small town 5-10 min drive, and a couple larger ones around 20 mins away. Again I strongly recommend upgrading to ‘The Level’. You won’t be disappointed.
Very nice hotel.
Stayed here for 10 days feb/march 2020. Most other guests looked to be all inclusive, but we had half board. Food was excellent. Facilities were good and the staff were very nice and friendly. Bar staff were brilliant. Would come again and hire a car next time as it's quite isolated. Lovely beach and the beach bar/kite centre is a great place to chill and relax.
Very nice hotel in a great location
My second stay here, this time with my wife, who was also very happy. The Melia is right on the beach at Playa Barca (Sotavento), a beautiful place with lots of soft sand, a tidal lagoon and windsurf and kitesurf centres within 2 or 3 minutes' walk. We had a sea view room with balcony, well worth paying a bit extra for, since we could watch the kites and windsurf boards from our room. Food was excellent, mostly buffet with different options every day we were there. Our deal was half board and next time we may well choose all inclusive, 'cos we spent enough on drinks and snacks to make up the difference in price, despite going out for lunch most days. The room was cleaned and cleaned well every day. All staff very helpful and friendly. Entertainment was excellent. Local facilities quite limited if you're not into watersports, but we enjoyed hand-feeding the local wild chipmunks, who live just along the beach past the windsurf centre. Sadly, the bus stop which used to be just outside the hotel is suspended, but a cab to the nearest town, Costa Calma, is only about 7 euros. Highly recommended for those who like watersports, naked Germans and a quiet location.
