    We live in the village for much of the year, owning our own property for the last five years and continually struggle with our water supply. At peak times, Christmas, Easter, Fiesta times the water pressure is so low the water stops completely. Let’s get the village amenities (which we pay good money for) upgraded first, before even considering this huge proposed development. Surely good sanitation is vital everywhere in 2017?

    I recently returned from El Cotillo and I was appalled at the amount of dog poo on the pavements etc., the residents clearly have no respect for other people and let their animals foul anywhere. We had to buy a torch to shine on the path on our way back to our accommodation after treading in this disgusting mess. Unfortunately we will think twice about returning after this experience.

      Sadly, there is a mindset amongst many of the locals in Cotillo to just let their dogs out. It is the only place I know where dogs regularly roam free. If you see a dog on its own where I live then you know it has escaped. Having said that, I think you have exaggerated as in 14 years of going to Cotillo I have never stepped in any. Perhaps you are just unlucky. Actually a bigger problem is during the Fiesta in August when so many younger people come from all over and sleep in their cars as then there is human poo around.

    We have been visiting El Cotillo as a family for over 30 years and have always loved the beach and lagoon on the way to the lighthouse. We have also loved Torino, the beach bar which we visited almost daily. We were very upset to find you have closed it. And you have dismantled the stone shelters on the beach, making it unusable because of the wind. It seems an unbelievable act of vandalism and we’re not sure we will visit Fuerteventura any more.

      The town hall won’t see your comment, and don’t care anyway. They only do what makes them the most money – just like politicians worldwide.

    There are only three El Cotillo hotels as, fortunately, it has not developed into that kind of resort – so far anyway. I would not want to see it become another massive all-inclusive resort like some others as the village would be totally ruined. The three hotels in El Cotillo are all very different –…
