The hotel is beautiful. The moment you arrive someone is there opening the door and holding a glass of champagne, which is the ideal way to arrive, especially if you head straight there after the working week. It’s also just a short ride from the airport, and while the flight is four hours it’s incredibly easy, making it the ideal mini break.
The rooms at the hotel look out towards the sea, and all are of a really high standard, irrespective of category. They all have balconies so you can really take in the scenery, as well as separate showers, baths and double sinks so it’s got a real sense of luxury. It’s very clean without being clinical and definitely has a high end vibe to it.
With the variety of restaurants available at the hotel, you can book either half board or full board, eating in the main a la carte dining room or upgrading to the three other restaurants. Providing plenty of variety I would highly recommend sampling all the options which include, a Japanese restaurant, a Mediterranean restaurant and one by the pool as well. There’s also a beautiful terrace which is a delight for watching the world go by.
Downstairs in the hotel, the spa sits under a glass dome where the staff are lovely and provide you with a gown and a shower cap to use in the pool when you arrive. For those looking to really spend time unwinding, the spa is a real haven, with lots of facilities such as a hydrothermal swimming pool with different jets for different sensations, a steam room, sauna, a pebble walk, an ice fountain, and a vitality pool – so it really is an extensive experience and it’s all very quiet.
It is worth noting that children are allowed in the spa area from 9.30-2.30 as it is a very family friendly hotel. That said, there is a limit on how many children are in the hotel at any one time and most of the children spend a lot of time at the complimentary kids’ club.
The treatment I had was wonderful, and as is so often the case, it was really made by my wonderful therapist, Beatrice. I had a full body scrub followed by a wrap and a full body hot stone massage totalling a luxurious 100 minutes and designed to reduce the stress, to relieve the muscle tension and pain. It was heavenly and my skin has never felt so amazing – I recommend having it on your first day there to help with your tan.
Key to the hotel’s location is the golf course opposite, as well as the nearby beach which is so quiet it might as well be private. Within the hotel grounds there are also three outdoor pools, one of which is heated all year round, which are separate from the spa experience, as well as mini golf and tennis courts available. So there’s plenty to do and I can’t see that you would ever get bored.
Sheraton Fuerteventura Beach Golf and Spa Resort is a wonderful fusion of a hotel – absolutely suited for those looking for a quiet and luxurious romantic break, but also family friendly for those wanting a more sophisticated trip with the children. There is a sense of tradition to it, which is warm and welcoming, and in the evenings there is a piano playing in the bar accompanied by a singer which brings an air of elegance to the occasion.
