Fuerteventura Advice

Considering getting out of blighty for a few days next week and going somewhere hot.

The cheapest place flying from Manchester looks like Fuerteventura, and perhaps staying AI in Costa Caleta. Do any of you knowledgeable people know anything about what it's like there? Weather? Still busy? Suitable for mid 20s couple who want to relax but do like to go out?

I've never been AI but looks like that would be the cheapest option especially as I expect eating out etc to be rather expensive.

Also, any one got any tips on negotiating the price on a Thomas Cook holiday? Can they beat online prices in store?

Thanks in advance.

Been there years ago.

Dry windy heat, is just off Africa.
My MIL came bk from costa caleta saturday.
I went few years ago

I holidayed in fuerteventura this year but north of teh island and cant remember where atm.
I was there a few years back - Costa Caleta is populated by around 70% Brits. If that's you gig when you go abroad - you'll enjoy it. It's a very small resort, quite isolated as well.

Probably Corralejo?
**** Deffo go AI as mega expensive as its an island everything imported
**** No nightclubs unless on your complex but some nice bars open until 1am ish
**** Great places to get full english for few euros in costa caleta if ever you want to eat off complex or missed breakfast

**** Water lovely but lots of rocks so buy water shoes .
**** Weather should still be a lil hotter than your british summer ( in laws came bk with nice tan)
But when i holidayed from 27th october few years back we had rain everyday at lunch time but lovely warm evenings
Probably Corralejo?

yup,. Thats the one MIL loves it she been like 8 times now.so get confused with where shes been and where we have
Shes going to cuba in feb and has been to fuertenventura twice this year and done a carribbean cruise alright for soem
Phone up thomas cook as sometimes the rep on phone will get you better deal. Like we got airport parking thrown in

Even Mickey D's in costa caleta but works out nearly £9 i think for large evm
what resort name you thinking of OP, as said MIL stayed on fuerteventura likem 8 times 3 of which was in costa caleta
Cheapest I can find for 4 nights is Costa Caleta in Costa Caleta (sometimes listed as Hotel Ocean).

The advice is much appreciated.

I find the "reviews" on there far too inflammatory, equally so with Holiday Watchdog. As a relative youngster I feel that my tolerance levels are not exactly the same as a middle aged couple or a parent who has saved up all year for one week away with their family.

E.g. Stayed in a massive apartment in Ibiza this year, that had some terrible reviews that we're completely undeserved. Doesn't inspire confidence when you have forked out £400 for something and then you read "hell-hole"

I tend to find people are more prone to want to moan if they have had a bad time (the food wasn't pie and chips, they were too many foreigners, my hotel in falaraki was full of teenagers etc), especiallyif they love a moan than if you have had a good time as well.
Its a very quiet resort, a few resturants, not a lot else.
Weather hot and windy, most hotels are AI due to not much else going on I think.
We went about 3 years ago, stayed in the Elba Sara Hotel which was great.
I would go back, but maybe to the North of the island.
I've just checked all the weather forecasts I could fine and its going to be lovely and warm and sunny.

My parents just got back from there this weekend gone, they loved it, very hot apparently, they're in their 50's but they act like they're in their 20's, they like a night out too. They said it was great and would definitely go back again, they usually go to the Canaries and have tried Lanzarote and Tenerife, but Fuerteventura seems to have made a lasting impression,lol

Have to say they forgot my pressie, the so and so's that they are:whistling:

Oh and they went AI too, saves faffing about looking for a good place to eat I guess.

Did they pop over to Malaga? Think I might have met them there last week.;-) :whistling:
Cheapest I can find for 4 nights is Costa Caleta in Costa Caleta (sometimes listed as Hotel Ocean).

Never been there i think MIL stayed at Broncemar this yea and loved it . We stayed at the costa dorada few years back fab site, fab entertainemnt but food mediocre.

Before that they stayed SC at the fortasol.

We were thinking of staying at the Barcelo if we ever went back as looked fantastic
Just booked Fuerteventura (been a few times previously) going from Manchester at beginning of Nov. Looked through all the usual sites - OTB, Travel Republic etc and no one is beating the online Thomas Cook prices plus if you book though TC you get baggage included 15kg each (5kg hand and 10kg hold) they do add on a £10 card fee, no matter what card, at the end the booking.

Weather good for next week late 70-85f but Fuerteventura is always windy!

Caleta de Fuste is a purpose built resort mainly full of restaurants and a few bars not much entertainment. Corralejo is much livelier and has 1 long main street with restaurants and bars. At the end of the street is a square leading to the harbour where they do have live entertainment bands, Elvis etc. This is the start of their busy-ish time of year but it is not like other resorts ie., Alcudia, Benidorm.

Never been AI in Fuerteventura so really can't comment apart from all the bars do offer different happy hour times and you can get very good food 30 euros for 2.
