The best thng with the stay was the breakfast, healthy, varied and good. The rooms are poorly furnished with a very uncomfertable chair and a sofa/bench, and the bed is hard. The room is clean. It is locate in the middle of nowhere and it is almost a must to have a rental car. The beach have to big waves for bathing or swimming. There are a small, but good, grocery store on the property, other than that there is nothing.

Stayed: March 2017

We, two adults and two children 12 and 14 yrs, spent one week from 11-18 december at this hotel. The weather was mixed with sunshine, clouds and strong winds 10-12m/s, temperatures between 20-22 degrees.

Positives:
+ Helpful and friendly hotel staff was always smiling and willing to help.
+ The environment and nature surrounding the hotel was magnificent, especially the Playa La Pared.
+ Heating of the pool.
+ Hotel area looked newly renovated and was clean and fresh.
+ Nice new gym with fair amount of equipment.
+ The group training program and instructor were good (extra plus Rebecka). A couple of more classes in the middle of the day would have been even better.
+ Nice welcome with champagne and fast check in.

Things that could be improved:
- Breakfast was good hotel standard with everything you would expect but maybe some more vegetables. We enjoyed the good smoothies.
- The dinner was good and offered something new every day. However we would have liked more variety and a few more options of both sallads and meat/fish dishes.
- Our kids are no strangers to new tastes but somedays they had problems finding food they liked. Maybe a kids buffé would be an idea.
- Dinner weas served between 1830 and 2130. However the personel stopped filling the buffé quite early in our oppinion, especially the desert table was quite empty already at 2000 a few evenings.
- To improve the quality feel of the restaurant a dress code for both guests and staff at dinner could be an idea. No trainers for the staff and maybe a uniform?
- The environment is great for trail running or biking. However the routes should be developed and better marked. The staff recommended the road to Costa Calma instead of the nice offroad trails that run across the hills and desert we explored by ourselves.
- The short path leading down from the hotel to the Playa La Pared could easily be more inviting with some effort.
- There could be a couple of more rental bikes and they should have daily service so that everything is ready the next morning. It did not feel so secure to rent bikes when some had flat tires and broken cahins.
- The spinning bikes were in need of service and maybe they should be renewed soon. It would be nice to look out at the pool area insted of looking in to a dark conference room. Change the placement of the instructor to the window side.

One thing to keep in mind is that the weather can be totally different on the other side of the island. We biked to Costa Calma one day and had great calm, warm and sunny weather compared to the windy conditions in La Pared that day.
On another day we took the affordabel shuttle bus to Las Playitas and had beautiful weather while it had rained in La Pared. The Playitas Hotel offered almost every sport activity you could ask for. Definitely worth a visit.

Conclusion
A good three star standard hotel if you like an active holiday.

Room Tip: The bungalows with three rooms are good size for families with teenagers.

We spent a week here with my husband and baby. The hotel is quite new and we had nice, spacious room close to the sea, it was so relaxing to fall asleep hearing the waves of ocean. Very clean, which is always good when you travel with a baby. Didn't have problems without AC as the weather wasn't too hot in the end of November.

The breakfast buffet was super good and had different options every day. You can eat quite healthy if you want - but they do have delicious stuff, missing the crepes and churros ;) also tried dinner buffet few times and it was nice too! Staff in the restaurant was really friendly. Special thanks to the waiter who always entertained our baby, sadly I don't know his name.

The beach is right there in the backyard and what a view - so so beautiful. Do not miss the sunset here. My husband did some surfing, there are few places where to rent surfboard with good price.

The hotel is really "in the middle of nowhere" and personally I would not go there without renting a car. With the car it is fast to reach Costa Calma's town with few shops and restaurants. Also beautiful Sotavento beach nearby is worth visiting!

I can recommend this place to everyone, either you wanna sweat or relax in the sun. :)

Nice hotel with all equipments and possibilities to do sports. Good gym, tennis court, beach volley court, basket ball court where was every day quided exercise lessons like; yoga, stretching, zumba, core etc.... inside they had also spinning and at the pool was water zumba and aqua splash lessons. Didn't cost anything except yoga. The hotel was very near at the popular surf beach "la pared beach" . Really high waves. Also you can rent bicycles to road and terrain. And surfboard rent was there too.

We had a bungalow beside the fench, which was locked day and night but you could go to the gate with key. Room didn't had a AC and few nights was pretty swetty because of the warm wind which comea few times a year to fuerteventura. The hotell have a rooms with AC.

Breakfast was really tasty and they had also healthy options to eat. And lunch at the poolbar was really delicious. Definetly try "Burger la pared"

Dinner was pretty boring and tasteless, so we ated once and that was enough.
Nearby the hotell and beach was fish restaurant, but only what i can say is that you really have to like fish if you wanna eat there

I think i didn't give the fifth star because of the not so good english skills which the hotell staff had. But after few miss understandings we could laugh about it otherwise happy and friendly staff.

I warmly can recommend this place specially those who wanna do sports and relax. Peaceful place.

From the moment I arrived, I was very well looked-after by David from the Wellenkind Surf School. The reception and check in were perfectly smooth and all the staff super friendly and informative. My room was overlooking the ocean, a separate but openvplan bedroom/living room and a brand new bathroom with walk in shower; nice fluffy white towels and robes! I loved the location, quick walk to check the surf. Really pretty beach with waves for all levels of surfer. The Wellenkind Surf Team were very international and did a great job of making sure all the surfers were enjoying themselves! I had the full board meal package, great food, buffet style and healthy options available. Best to hire a car if you want to cruise around Visit Las Playitas too! Awesome place to do some flat water SUPPING or chill out in one of the beach bars. I had a great time, very well looked after! Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Block 7 had great views of the sea!
