Caleta de fueste hotel castillo de Antigua and San Jorge
Just back from caleta in fuerteventura . It was very relaxed and kids were kept entertained. The view and the weather were exceptional. Food was average but lots of other places to eat outside the hotel. Overall the holiday was good value for money. Only down side quite a walk to the nearest beach.

Great last minute week away!!!
Booked three weeks before arriving at the resort for the first time. So glad we booked it. Ideal resort and lots to do and places to eat. Had a problem with the shower and within 5 minutes of reporting it the repair man was there to fix it. Couldnt have asked for a better resort and the hotel and complex itself were clean and welcoming. Booking up again for xmas. cant wait!!!

Lovely relaxing getaway for a young couple
We stayed at the Castillo San Jorge & Antigua (This is two hotels under the Antigua name) and we found it to be an amazing hotel. It has everything you need, 2 pools, snack bar, children's play area, games room, supermarket, shop and the view at the back of the hotel is amazing. Personally i preferred being self-catering and eating out every night because the restaurants in Caleta de Fuste were astounding, the location of the hotel was also fantastic and i would definitely recommend paying the extra money for a sea view room. Whilst we were there it looked like some refurbishments were being carried out, however this was done in the most quietest and most un-disturbing way! The holiday was relaxed from start to finish and our holiday rep (Amy) was fantastic! Do not have a bad word to say about the resort, hotel or Thomas Cook experience. It is a beautiful island and well worth the visit whether your old, young or have a family!! Can't wait to return next year!!!

Good relaxing holiday in fuerteventura
We had a relaxing holiday in costa caleta castillo san jorge the staff were friendly
the restaraunt staff were very welcoming especially ( mercedes ) and (galileo) they made us feel very welcome the location was ok 10-15mins from air port didnt have much to do in hotel or out and about but we think it was because we were there at the end of march till 5th april there was work going on but didnt bother us at all the pool was getting re done at the front and was ready to use the day we left which was a bit disaponting but we are going back again we hope to get booked for a week in july

We have just returned from a 2 week stay at the san jorge complex and it was the worst place we have stayed at.Very disappointed that Thomas cook rep recommended this apartment complex.The place was undergoing some building work close by but that did NOT bother us or have any effect on us.What did was the unclean room we was in. We did ask if we could be moved but was told there was no other rooms available for the next two weeks.The fridge was in a bad state with no freezer section and the door was covered in corroded parts. The toilet was not very good and when we mentioned the state of the room they sent a cleaner in who had joy in banging the doors on the cupboards. The bottom ot the toilet looked corroded inside and long hairs on the bathroom floor were there al week. Every Time someone walked along the corridor with a trolley or suitcase made it sound like a freight train was passing and this was all hours.The walls were so thing someone came and told us they can not sleep because our tv was loud. When i told him it was not loud and we could hardly hear it he was not happy but it is not our fault if the walls are thin and his bedroom was the room other side of where the tv was.The internet charge i think is a rip off as you pay for two weeks internet wifi and can only use one appliance/mobile at a time on it. Reading other reviews on other sites i get the impression those going all inclusive get looked after and those on self catering get the short straw. I would never stay at this complex again. The only good thing about it was the bar underneath called the dog and duck.This pub was very good and good beers at a great price.No rip off prices and the staff were very friendly.The area we stayed in was not too bad but plenty of complexes that were closed and looked like building sites. Not much in the way of entertainment for those wanting it. For thoses who want to explore the island hiring a car is a must.First time i have ever driven on holiday and i enjoyed it.Hired a car from cicar at a cost of just 20 euros a day for 7 days.
Very windy island as well unless your in a sheltered area. End of the day there was nothing we really liked about the san jorge or the area and will not be returning and wished we had gone to Tenerife instead.

Lovely break in Fuerteventura!
I had a very enjoyable stay in these apartments and am just back. I was self catering but did go down for breakfast most mornings which was very good. There were a few places around the area to eat also. Was a bit worried about the building work going on but needn't have worried as I didn't feel it was a problem at all. Apartments by the rocky seafront with a ten minute walk to the beach which was lovely and a further beach by the Atlantico Shopping Centre which took half an hour to walk. I would recommend these apartments but perhaps not in high season as there is no aircon. I was impressed by it being the only place I have ever been to which strickly enforces no reserving of chairs. I would visit again but like to go to different places.

Not at all as described in the brochure, renovation work going on and no cleaning of outside areas.
The room was large but poorly equiped for self cattering the decor was dated. the balcony areas had not been cleaned and was not cleaned while we were there, as it was in constant shade we never used it.
The large communial areas in both the San Jorge and Antigua were closed for renovation throughout our stay therefore only one small caffeteria was open for drinks/snacks day and night with no comfortable seating, the evening entertainment was hear and ajacent area outside and it was to cold in the evenings to be sat outside.
On the first day both swimming pools were closed and the surrounding areas were not cleaned throughout our stay, leaving cigarette ends, buildersdirt, bits of glass and plastic blowing about.
All in all I am glad we were not staying ALL IN as it was not a conducive atmosphere to lounge about the place for evening drinks, thank goodness for the Dog n Duck !
