Fuerteventura, is know as "la Isla tranquila" the quiet Isalnd. And generally speaking it lives up to it´s name.
I flew over yesterday and I had the pleasure of booking into the brand new five star Sheraton la Caleta hotel.
I have actually stayed here a few times since it opened and have always been very well looked after. The hotel is in Caleta de Fuste, just a 10 to 15 minute drive from the airport. The Sheraton is one of the latest five star hotels in Fuerteventura, as the Island is transforming itself into a luxury family and Golf resort.
If you are coming to Fuerteventura for your holidays and want the best, then you can´t go far wrong with the Sheraton. From the UK Thomson´s are offering package deals for bed and breakfast and Half board.
If you prefer to book your holidays directly then you can book online at www.sheraton.com. Prices start at €129.00 per night for a double room for two adults including breakfast. Thats just under £90.00 per night, but for a hotel of this class it is very good value for money.
The hotel is surrounded by everything the Island has to offer. You can walk from the resort onto the beach. It's sister hotel The Elba Palace Golf offers 18 holes of championship class golf (the Spanish 2004 golf open was held here). There is a brand new shopping centre close by offering bars, restaurants and various local and international shops.
On the resort is an adults and childrens pool. Beautifully maintained tropical gardens. A health SPA. Various bars and much much more. And if you are here on business like me there are conference rooms a webcafe and full WiFi coverage through out the hotel. In fact I shall be uploading this blog on their WiFi connection.
The food is good and the staff are friendly, in fact as soon as I've finished this I'm going to gorge myself with a three course breakfast. Then it's back to business I'm afraid.
Anyway if you want to see Fuerteventura but £90.00 a night is a bit rich for your blood then you can get family accommodation from only £20.00 per night. Click HERE to run a search.
So where ever you decide to stay you can be sure of Sun sandy beaches and lots of relaxation in Fuerteventura. Bien Viaje!
