    “Great Hotel”

    Just back from a week in the Occidental Jandia Mar. Prior to going we read some bad reviews and considered changing our hotel, consulting with our travel agent. How glad we were to stay with the Occidental Jandia Mar: Right from check in we were made feel very welcome, we had a sea view room and our view was excellent looking right over the complex onto the sea. The staff were very helpful and very kind and attentive to our young children. Our rooms were very clean and well laid out. This goes for the whole hotel as there are constantly cleaners cleaning round. The two pools were warm spacious and well monitored. Food had a different theme each night and it was plentiful as we were in the early sitting due to children, there were no cues. Snack bar was burgers, hot dogs and pizza etc grab and go food which was great as you had the option to go into the main dining room also. Our kids loved the half hour entertainment at night with members of staff interacting and making children feel welcome. We did venture down the hill and back up again pushing a double buggy it definitely is not as bad as people are making out. Overall a throughly enjoyable stay we will be back at some stage, and glad we didn't take on board the negative comments.

    “great place, lots of steps”

    stayed 2 weeks at start of October 2018. overall this is a great place to stay however you should be aware of the following: Food: The all inclusive restaurant felt a bit 'canteen' like if you sat inside - the outside tables were great though - some weren't in the shade so it got quite hot behind the glass if you didn't get a shaded spot. There was always a 'special' theme served at an island just inside the door that was always busy. usually only one chef serving and there were times when that wasn't enough at busy times. some long queues and empty pots if you got there at a busy time. All the meals would score a 6 or 7/10 but that's it - there were no 10/10 meals so it got a bit boring in week 2. there is another restaurant upstairs that does breakfast for 10euro or dinner for 20eruo. I didnt go but a friend did and they said it was'the same as downstairs (the main foodhall) but cold!'. snackbar by the pool did the usual burger/hotdogs n salads - all what you'd expect. Room: Clean and well laid out - we had a sea view which was spectacular. there were 100 steps from the pool to out room(Block 4 top floor) - bear that in mind if you have anyone with any kind of mobility issue. beds were two singles rather than the double promised by Jet 2 - was told this was standard for the hotel. entertainment: Oh Dear. Oh dear. pretty poor if i'm honest - the best singers of the week were on at the karaoke night! the piano player in the upstairs bar thought that if they played loudly, noone would notice the poor quality. but that was better than the crooning flat monotone of the guitar playing girl downstairs. luckily, theres a top terrace that meant we could get away from all that. Kiddies disco is a 30minute prerecorded tape that i suppose the 4 year olds it was aimed at found acceptable. funniest bit of every night was the dambusters verse in the music man song and the kids ran around 'bombing' the Ruhr dams! Pool: two pools - big and warm, plenty for kids to do. no rowdy behaviour tolerated by the lifeguards so it was quite a pleasant place to be. get there early for a decent sunbed as they were all 'baggsed' quite quickly - even tho the rules said that wasnt allowed. didnt see anyone stopping folk getting there early and leaving a towel so had to join in to get a decent spot. Locale: top of a steep hill from the beach so quite a trek - there is a free bus three times a day to and from the beach though. beach is close by and excellent with good sand and clean. the hotel is a 25minute trek out of town although a taxi ride was only 3.50euros. walked it a couple of times during the day and it was worth the taxi ride when we got it. all in all, this was a good hotel - a few minor points that you could get worked up about if you were that kind of person, but nothing to really complain about.

    “No complaints (apart from the piano).”

    Third stay at this hotel. Read a lot of negative reviews, but found little to complain about. Being picky, the piano was far too loud, but the food, the drink and and facilities were really acceptable. Staff were generally very friendly and helpful. People complained about having to pay for pool towel changes and having to pay for a safety deposit box; these are choices and not forced on you. Enough choice at meal times, but obviously avoid busy times where possible, to avoid queues. We would definitely go back.

    “Fantastic Hotel”

    This was our 8th time in Fuerteventura & this is by far the best hotrl/ resort we've stayed at. Absolutely nothing to complain about, lovely food, a different theme every night in the buffet. How anyone could fault this place amazes me, the staff were great, always happy & smiling, their job isn't easy 52 weeks a yr. We will definitely come back , totally enjoyed the 10 days we spent there, thoroughly recommend the Jandia Mar
