We stayed in a villa at the end of June 2017 for two weeks. They are exactly as they look in the brochure - very spacious. Two big bedrooms with comfy beds and lovely pillows. Each bedroom opens onto the pool area and has its own en-suite with bath and separate shower. There is a separate shower room and toilet behind the kitchen but we didn't use it. Nice kitchen, fairly well equipped but could have done with a baking tray and some oven gloves. The oven looked like it didn't get much use! Microwave, kettle, toaster. Lovely open plan lounge area with tv although not any decent channels. The pool was gorgeous and very private (we had villa 21). The villa was next to the main road into Las Playitas but not much traffic and didn't hear any noise. Very quiet on a night and the villa's are well spaced so never heard any noise from other people. All the villa had very good air conditioning and good wifi connection.
The only downside to these villas are they are quite far away from the complex. We didn't think this would bother us but when you are going backwards and forwards several times a day (particularly when carrying big water bottles from the supermarket) this can be quite tiresome.
Regarding the resort itself, I have left a separate review under Las Playitas resort.

Room Tip: Villa's 1-5 are the nearest and have the best view overlooking the golf course.

Dear Julie,

Thank you very much for your nice review and your high evaluation. We are very happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Playitas Villas. Concerning the TV-Channels we can inform you that we have several Spanish, English and German channels.
The distance to the villas is a 5 minutes walk, that is why we always have our staff helping our clients with their luggage at check-in and check-out. For any help during your stay you can always ask reception. Our bellboys would have been happy to help you with bringing you big water bottels to the villa. We wish you would have mentioned something while you were here.
We hope we will have the pleasure to welcome you again at Playitas Resort.

Kind regards,
Playitas Team

After a week at Playitas Villas we are loaded with energy. Such great pleasure to attend Sun Salutation while watching the sun rising above the Atlantic Ocean - and then run home to the villa and take a swim in the private (heated) pool. There are so many very great activities with great instructors for the entire family, so even if the sun is high and you are on a vacation, you want to work out - happily.

We have been there four times - and we will be back.

We half-heartedly booked into this sports resort as all we wanted was a gym, we are both gym regulars, enjoy long walks and I love exercise classes. On arrival we were taken up to our apartment in a taxi, it only became clear afterwards that there is a mini-train to get there and back. It would have been useful to have this explained on arrival (I even speak Spanish!). During the first night, the air conditioning did not work (it was the middle of August), we were not informed of this on arrival. When we enquired, we were informed that there had been an incident in our block the week before. After this, it did come on.

Despite these issues, the fantastic exercise classes outside facing the sea (Body Combat, Zumba, Bokwa with instructions in English) as well as the Social Football and Social Basketball plus the gym, pools, mountain walking and beach made up for everything. There are some classes that you do have to book and pay for such as Body Pump and Yoga. There is plenty of time to relax and sunbathe. We walked over the mountains to Gran Tarajal and also took the guaguay (bus) to the capital Puerto de Rosario just to get out and about. The bus service in Fuerteventura is not at good as Tenerife by any means! There is a local fishing village nearby but apart from that, it is barren.

On site the breakfast was great and the Italian restaurant was nice. The ladies in the supermarket were extremely friendly and chatty.

We would definitely come to Las Playitas again, we loved it!

We were staying at Playitas Annexe (also called Viviendas) - room 49. It is about 300 meters from the main lobby and thus 5 minutes walk from the main sports area. The apartment had 3 rooms, 1 bathromm/toilet + an extra toilet and a kitchen. Outside there was nice little terrace.
The viviendas are basic but contain what you need if you are at playitas for the sports (we were). The kitchen gives you the opportunity to cook your own meals, although you have to be a little bit creative, since the kitchen isn't big. But it works.
Cleaning is done everyday by some very friendly ladies. Wifi is really unstable and when it's there, the speed is slow.
The sports facilities at Playitas are really nice and the surroundings ideal for running and biking. There were lots of triathletes training at Playitas when we were there.
I'm not sure how well it would work with small children, although many families had smaller kids with them.

I wish someone would have warned me before about the dangerous pool. There is a seating area in the middle of the pool made from the same tiles. I swam into the seating area and really hurt myself. I suggest the tiles are in a different colour. Completely dangerous.

We stayed in the apartments. It was a cheap holiday and the apartments were to be expected for what we paid. If I was paying peak summer prices I would have been disappointed with the standard of the rooms. Definitely in need of modernisation.

We didn't eat at the hotel once - we ate at all the restaurants in the village- el Porril and victors being our favourites for evening meal.

There is a sandwich shop opposite the spa in the village called bocadillion. The menu in English is listed on my pictures. They don't speak any English but the food is so cheap and excellent value for money. Would highly recommend it for lunch or late breakfasts.

We visited in December and the entertainment was dire. On the Saturday eve of our weeks holiday the bar with most going on was cordoned off for a wedding.

The sports facilities were excellent, which is a real positive for the hotel. But the dangerous pool completley ruined it for me.

Stayed: December 2016
