This was our first stay at this hotel, but we have decided it won't be our last ! We will be back same time next year. The hotel is located right on the sea front, in an elevated position (don't be fooled by the official photo, you can't reach out and touch the sea) We chose the Premium option, which... More

Had never visited Morro Jable before and the XQ El Palacete was a perfect choice. The size of the hotel is definitely an advantage as the pool area is never busy and there are always comfortable sun loungers free at any time of day. The position of the hotel is the best in the area, giving easy access to the... More

A lovely small hotel overlooking the sea. Friendly, happy, attentive staff. Reception could do with a re furb as not very impressive when you first arrive and the same for the bar. Although old fashioned public areas everything is spotlessly clean. Its a shame not many people stay for the evening entertainment, the soul group were fantastic. Usual problems with... More

We have just returned from our 4th visit to this delightful small hotel. It is in a superb position overlooking the beach and the small town of Morro Jable with wonderful sea views from every spacious bedroom. However, what makes this hotel even more special is the people who work there - friendly, welcoming, caring and very professional.

A week here as a first trip to Fuerteventura. Friends had dubbed the resorts to the north of the island 'a bit "Kiss me quick" hats' so we opted to be based at the southern tip.

This hotel feels like it was here long before all the others, and is quietly still outclassing them. It’s relatively small size, location right on the beach in the heart of town, and friendly, helpful staff all make for a great experience. We only stayed a couple of nights, but would happily have spent longer here. Wonderful ocean views, spacious... More

Chose this hotel because we have a strong dislike of the massive 'all inclusive' experience. With only 57 rooms this hotel has a much more intimate and friendly feel.
