Although it is the second largest of the Canary Islands, Fuerteventura is often overlooked in favour of its larger counterpart, Tenerife.
Tenerife is certainly a great spot for a vacation. However, its immense popularity means you’ll have to spend your holiday surrounded by families.
This can become extremely frustrating for couples, who would like to enjoy a romantic dinner or quiet walk free from screaming children.
Fuerteventura offers the peace and serenity that Tenerife does not. There, you and your partner can stroll along the island’s sandy shores without interruption.
Along with its scenic beaches, five-star restaurants, and spectacular sites, Fuerteventura boasts a variety of accommodation options designed specifically for couples. We’re going to be looking at the very best of them in this article.
Here are the best places for couples to stay in Fuerteventura.

Each courtyard comes equipped with sunbeds and an outdoor shower to compliment the bed and shower of the pod interior.
If you and your partner ever find time to leave your room, the hotel has no shortage of activities for you to indulge in.

Many couples have trouble deciding where to stay in Fuerteventura for fear of having their peace and quiet derailed by noisy children.
While it is true that the island isn’t particularly popular among families, there are still some who choose to holiday there.
If you would like to minimize your risk of encountering them, consider staying at Barceló Corralejo Bay.
Barceló Corralejo Bay is Fuerteventura’s leading adults-only resort.

Have you ever dreamed of having your own private pool? Of course you have, who hasn’t?
Well, visit Bahiazul Villas & Club and you can fulfill that dream for the duration of your stay. But wait, it gets better! Each of the hotel’s villas comes equipped not just with its own pool, but with a private hot tub as well.
This is particularly beneficial in the era of coronavirus. Not to mention it’s also about romantic as it gets.
The great theme of Bahiazul Villas & Club is independence.
Couples don’t have to interact with each other if they don’t want to. With a private terrace and dining area to compliment your private pool, you and your partner can enjoy each other’s company free from interruption.
If you would prefer to mix with fellow residents, there are plenty of places you can do so.
A glamourous on-site bar facilitates easy mingling and provides the perfect backdrop for a night out if you develop cabin fever (or should that be ‘villa fever’?).
You can also pass the time in the hotel’s spa and fitness center.
Beyond the realms of the hotel, there are nightclubs and bars aplenty, where you and your partner can dance the night away.

Gran Hotel Bahia Real is one of the largest hotels in all of Fuerteventura.
It boasts more than 240 rooms.
This is advantageous as it means you won’t have any trouble securing a reservation, even during peak periods.
Despite the hotel’s immense capacity, interaction between guests is not forced. Couples who would like to spend their holiday exclusively in each other’s company can do so.
The hotel makes this possible by spacing out its guests across five restaurants. Appropriately, each of these five restaurants boasts five-star dining.
Along with its five restaurants, Gran Hotel Bahia Real features a spacious spa. There, couples can enjoy a variety of luxurious spa treatments alone or together.
Meanwhile, the hotel’s exotic beach club allows guests to indulge in the pleasures of the beach, without interruption from public beachgoers.
The hotel isn’t far removed from some of Fuerteventura’s most beautiful hiking trails. Similarly, it is situated near volcanoes and mountain bike riding paths, which are perfect if you or your partner is an adrenaline junkie.
The hotel also maintains close business relationships with nearby safari parks and tour guides and will be able to help you arrange these experiences without complications.
Prices for 2 adults for a 7 night stay are in the region of £1100.
H10 Ocean Dreams Boutique Hotel
If you still haven’t decided on where to stay in Fuerteventura, H10 Ocean Dreams Boutique Hotel may be the place for you.
Like Barceló Corralejo Bay, this is an adults-only resort. However, it boasts the advantage of being a little more modern, having been built in 2016.
Despite its youth, H10 Ocean Dreams Boutique Hotel has done a magnificent job establishing itself as one of the top hotels on the island.
One of its defining features comes in the form of its bali beds. These beds are strategically placed around the hotel pool to allow all couples to enjoy the poolside area in near total privacy.
The hotel’s dining area is laid out in a similar manner to its poolside.
Even when sharing the restaurant with other couples, you and your partner will feel like you’re the only people in the room. For a totally blissful dining experience, we suggest ordering one of the restaurant’s delicious bottles of chilled champagne!
For a 7 night stay for 2 adults prices are in the region of £1000.
