Where to stay in El Cotillo – Apartments and Hotels

The vast majority of visitors’ preferred option is to stay in one of the many self-catering El Cotillo apartments there are to rent. Some have fabulous sea views, others are tucked away in quiet spots in the village..

Some apartments are in small complexes while others are independently owned and rented by their owners. Staying in an apartment, rather than in the all-inclusive hotel, allows people the flexibility to eat in if they wish, or go out and sample the food at one of the many restaurants dotted around the village.

Winter is high season here and many come for extended stays of 3 weeks or much more. Why would anyone not want to get away from the awful weather in northern Europe and spend a month or so in the lovely winter climate of Fuerteventura? That’s what we did for 4 winters before moving here full time.

Staying in apartments is also much better for the village as it keeps the supermarkets, bars and restaurants in business. All-inclusive hotels are killing small businesses in other places on the island, and elsewhere in the world, as their guests rarely, if ever, leave the hotels to eat or drink and spend money outside.

There are actually only two hotels in El Cotillo as, fortunately, it has not developed into that kind of resort – so far anyway.
