Averil Barry purchased this Apartment in 2005

Nice studio large balcony
Very nice studio well situated with large balcony
Studio with nice sunny balcony and everything you could need. Will be back again.
clean and quiet
As previous reviews have said, the communication appears to be quite poor between the owner and the person supposedly holding the key to the property. When we arrived 'Lynne' was nowhere to be found. Thankfully there were some guests leaving the complex who had a number for a fella called 'John' who kindly came and collected us and let us into the apartment.
The studio itself was clean and had everything you could want for our stay including a washing machine and travel cot!! a must for us!! if not a little on the small side.
The complex itself was mainly British folk who had bought out there, all very friendly and happy to have a chat. There are a few bars and a Chinese restaurant (the best on the island apparently) outside the complex and a good size supermarket. Otherwise the beach and town of Caleta De Fuste is a good 30/35 minute walk. So make sure you take a good pair of shoes, you can get a taxi across which will cost around 3 to 4 euros. The apartment is very close to the airport approx 10 mins by car. There is a chap who lives on the complex that is more than happy to take you back for 10 euros.
Over all we had a really relaxing stay, however if your looking for some good nightlife and entertainment and a beach on the doorstep this is not the place for you.
Not owners property we were given
The property we stayed was not the one owned or advertised by owner we were picked up at the airport and told her apartment was not available
But with some minor gripes
We loved the location with the walks along the sea path but not sure it would suit everyone as it is very quiet we had a car so if we wanted more it was accessible to us
Loved the outside space and sea views
Although small the best bathroom and shower i have ever used in the canaries and i have visited on average 8 weeks a year for 20 years
The kitchen facilities again were very good to TV & WiFi worked well
Now the downside and these are only minor gripes and did not detract from our stay
linen and towels need upgrade could do with relocation of TV
Would we stay again definitely would recommend unreservedly

Lovely property, poor communication.
The apartment itself was fine.
Clean, good location and facilities.
Alas the communication was nothing short of shambolic.
When you arrive at 9.30 at night to a gated apartment block, and you have previously advised your arrival time, you expect someone to be waiting to let you in....
Unfortunately for us, that person (not the owner, the "responsible" individual on site) decided going out was a better use of their evening!
It took some calls and time to finally get the keys (from another resident who assisted as clearly someone was having too good an evening), just what you want at that time.
The process of leaving was equally shambolic.
I advised we had an evening flight do would be departing late afternoon.
Come the final day I get a text advising we need to be out inside 30 mins!
Suffice to say I was unimpressed and agreed to leave at lunchtime.
We cleaned and left it spotless, only to be advised by text to leave the keys in the apartment as she was going to do other things....
If you are looking for an apartment, this is a lovely location, and this is a clean and tidy place, but good luck getting the key when you arrive!
Because of this I cannot recommend.
Special interest holidays:
Perfect for cyclists, cross the quite road from the complex and you are at the coastline, there is a cycle track and footpath which links up 3 resorts. Fishing is very popular off the coast 2 mins from the complex. There is also a diving center in Caleta and a windsurfing school, horse riding in Triquivijecy.
Fuerteventura has 150 beaches. Costa Antigua is situated on the coast just a 20 minute stroll along a paved coastal walkway to the safe beaches of Caleta de Fuste, which caters for sunbathers and the more adventurous with a multitude of water sports and activities. Free bus to and from the beach from the nearby bus stop. This bus also takes you to the Atlandico centre, an air-conditioned shopping centre, cinema, bowling alley and many restaurants, bars Burger King and large supermarket.
The islands airport Puerto del Rosario, now linked to numerous airports in Ireland & England including Dublin, Shannon, Cork, Leeds/Bradford (Ryanair), Liverpool (Easy Jet) is just a 10 min drive away. Private airport pick-ups & drop-offs are available (payable in resort). Although a car is not essential it is recommended for the less mobile and allows the opportunity to visit various places of interest and some of the other magnificent beaches the island has to offer.
Costa Antigua is ideally situated to visit any part of the island within 1 hour by car with the vast sand dunes of Corralejo to the north & the golden sandy beaches of Morra Jable to the south. Both have numerous activities including windsurfing, jet skiing & surf boarding. The islands capital Puerto del Rosario is just a 15 minute bus journey away. Fuerteventura has a wonderful zoo, which provides a courtesy bus, with daily pick-up. Fancy going to Lanzarote for a day -ferry trip available.
There are a couple of small supermarkets and bars/restaurants in Costa Antigua with live entertainment with singers, acts & even bingo for those who like a flutter, although near-by Caleta de Fuste offers a much wider choice. There is a free bus service to the larger shopping mall in the Atlantico Centre offering a larger supermarket, numerous bars/restaurants, bowling and cinema complex and other shopping outlets that cater for all. There are several banks & cash machines for that all important currency. Caleta de Fuste has a multitude of good restaurants that can cater for all tastes at very reasonable prices.
