We like going back here when we visit Fuerteventura. It is a hotel with only 54 bedrooms, and they all have a sea view. They are good sized rooms, and we have always had one with a balcony. We have got to know several of the staff over the past four years, and they are always helpful and friendly. One...

We first stayed at this hotel 13 years ago when it was the Riu Palace. Wanting a relaxing 10 days in the sun in a fantastic hotel right on a beach we could walk for miles on we found ourselves drawn back to Morre Jable even though we rarely return anywhere. We are not disappointed - it's as good if...

We stayed at different places and different hotels. This hotel has a perfect location, close to beach and restaurants. And perfect view. Don't expect an animation team here, but is not necessary at this place.
