I would stay here again and I would recommend it to others.

5 of 5
I stayed here for 6 nights in February 2017. The weather was windy but sunny and warm. While not in the centre of town or with good views, the location was good - close to everything - and it was a 5-10 minute walk to various stunning beaches. Right down the street is a large supermarket. And it is less than 10 minutes walk to the centre of town and the restaurants. There is loads of parking around the property; you're spoilt for choice. My interaction with the owner was limited as we didn't meet, but personally I prefer to be left alone so that was fine. And Manuel did make it easy for us to get the keys and drop the keys off, plus he was just a phone call away if we needed him. We exchanged a few whatsapps and he let us get on with it. The email I received from the owner just before we arrived was excellent, with detailed info about where to find the keys and how to reach the apartment. The property itself was quite charming with a good size kitchen and cosy living space. The bedrooms were especially bright and fresh. I would not recommend this place for 6 persons though. We were 2 and had plenty of space. I would say 4 persons would be comfortable. The apartment also has a good size terrace with a table and 4 chairs. We did not use the terrace at all as it doesn't get the sun at any time of day but does always get the wind! There were a few lights that didn't work inside the apartment and the water heater was sometimes leaky in the bathroom. But these are minor things and are really the extent of anything negative. Everything else about this place is positive. The apartment is part of a complex and is located in between other apartments and opposite a car park. Despite this there was never any noise at all during the night or during the day. It's a very peaceful area. I would advise anyone wishing to stay in El Cotillo to book this place. We had a very positive experience and it is good value for money. Plus El Cotillo is a great base to explore Fuerteventura. Mil gracias Manuel y espero volver pronto!

Lovely spot by the beach

5 of 5
Apartment was beautiful, tidy, small but comfortable. Kitchen with two ring cooker, microwave, kettle and pots/pans and cutlery good enough to cook most nights for three weeks. Shower with washing machine all worked fine, and also the safe in the bedroom was useful to store valuables. Even managed to watch some TV series in English once we found the setting to disable the dubbing into Spanish. The location is perfect, right by the beach, and plenty space to eat and sit outside in the well kept garden, which was sheltered from the prevailing winds and got plenty sun in the morning especially.

Perfect retreat for some winter sun

5 of 5
We had visited the Marfalin apartments three years previously, but this year booked an upstairs apartment with a lovely terrace and fabulous views. El Cotillo is perfect for us, as it is not full of Brits, infact quite the opposite as you have a diverse range of holiday makers. The town has barely changed and feels sleepy and not too commercialized, but has a nice selection of restaurants. The pool and beach which are on your doorstep just add to the lovely experience. We will definatly be back
