Sol Jandia Mar

We booked the Sol Jandia Mar Hotel as it was the cheapest all inclusive I could find on the island that looked decent enough to go to.

It was a last minute trip for me and my cousin, which I decided to book after finding flights for under £40 return on RyanAir for 3 days, 2 nights.

It takes nearly 2 hours to get from the airport to the hotel on a coach transfer, but that’s pretty much down to the amount of stops before this hotel, as it was the last one on the route.

The hotel is very clean, well laid out and they’ve put a lot of effort into making the hotel a really nice place to stay. The gardens/pool area and all of the walkways were really nicely designed. The pool was spotless, and one of the pools was heated, meaning it can be used even when the air temperature is under 20 degrees.

 

The room we were given was excellent, you could see the pool and the sea from the balcony which you can see in the photo I’ve attached.

The room was huge! As it was me and my (female) cousin staying, it was good that they provided twin beds, but even better that both of the sofas were pretty much beds anyway, so we had separate rooms.

Fuerteventura

The room included a huge bathroom, balcony, a kitchen area with a fridge and hot plate, a large bedroom with about 5 mirrors for some reason, and a really, really old CRT TV.

The only problems I had with the hotel is that the food was pretty bad, and they have this weird receipt system for drinks. For example, if you order a drink, they hand you a receipt, make you sign it and put your room number on there, but you’ve got an all inclusive band on anyway…? I queried this to make sure I wouldn’t be charged at the end of the stay, and she said no. I asked in both Spanish and English, I understood all of the words in both languages, but not the reasoning behind the receipt. However, we never received a final bill, so I guess it’s just for their knowledge? It’s very odd and I’d recommend they explain what this is for upon arrival as a lot of people were confused.

A quick one, it’s about 2 minutes walk to the beach, which is really nice.

I would book this hotel again if I was going to Fuerteventura again, but it’s not likely I’ll do that, as there’s not much to do on the island. Although, if you’re going simply to laze on the beach, even in winter, it’s so hot that you can get a tan in one day like I did.
