The hotel was clean, spacious and had very friendly staff who were always smiling and happy to help. The facilities were of a good standard. The rooms had plenty of space with a good bed and a nice balcony with a view of the sea. Lots of room to sunbath outside and 2 minutes from a very nice beach.
We stayed at the hotel at peak time, 1st week of August and though full, it never felt crowded. The hotel is beautifully laid out, very clean with very helpful and friendly staff. There was a good mix of nationalities, no drunken or rowdy behaviour. There was sometimes a short wait for a table during breakfast and evening meals.Can't blame the staff, they were doing their utmost to clear tables and set up for the next family, they just needed a few more hands on deck. There was always plenty of choice during all meals but dinners were never very spiced if you prefer a bit more zing to your food. Plenty of sunbeds by the large freeform pool, the indoor pool was also a nice touch. Beautiful sandy beach was just a two minute stroll down through the hotel. The beach is not a part of the hotel so you do have to pay for sunbeds and parasols (unless you go down after 17.00 by which time the bright orange vested money collector has usually gone for the day). Twee shows in the evening kept us entertained but nobody seems to want to dance after the shows, especially the teens cos they're too busy online using free WiFi in reception! The animation team were very friendly and good fun if you wanted to join in in any of the activities, but they were never in your face or insistent like some can be at other hotels we've been to. Chilled pool bar serving a nice variety of lunch dishes if you're not All Inclusive.
When we first booked our stay at the Risco del Gato we immediately trawled through the countless reviews of the resort, trying to find one which had any real criticism. We couldnt find a single one, so we had a pretty good idea that we had chosen well. It certainly lived up to expectations. The resort was all we'd hoped it would be. The apartments were clean, spacious , and the secluded courtyards were wonderful for catching the last hour or so of sunshine each day. The resort itself has a wonderful aura of calm about it. There was no mad scramble for sunbeds, no bunfight in the restaurant (the food was first class), and all of the staff were wonderfully helpful and polite.
If there was anything at all I could change, it would be slightly softer mattresses on the beds (but that's just a personal preference) and maybe a slightly bigger fridge in the apartments, but these really are just minor details. We are already planning another visit here next year. Having visited Fuerteventura several times in the past, no other resort we've visited holds a candle to Risco del Gato.
My husband and I took our 15 year old son with us to this hotel, and had a lovely time, the staff and entertainment grooup were great.I would not hesitate in recommending the location, food and entertainment of the hotel. The majority of the hotel guests were german,but we met some really lovely families who could speak english, and they went out of their way to be friendly towards us
This was a lovely family holiday, with loads of well organised activities and facilities for children and adults. The food was great and very varied, but also with the staples of pasta and pizza for non adventurous kids. Much less windy than the north side of Island which made it a nice warm temperature. It was mainly German guests which was fine for us adults but the kids did complain about having no one else to play with. The entertainment team were brilliant, full of energy, polite, all spoke English, Spanish and German fluently as a minimum. The evening shows were well produced and well worth attending. The mini club was well run with different activities each day and the chance to win a certificate or medal that was awarded at the kids disco in the evening. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

The food was great. Really good variety and it never ran out.
Room was OK, pretty clean. Nice size. Twin beds. Our fridge didn't work so we asked for a replacement which was quickly done.
We did suffer a bit from general noise. We were on the seventh floor (which is actually the sixth as for some reason there is no second floor) and outside our room there is an opening which let in noise from outside the hotel and the wind - which was constant - was quite noisy. Would recommend any other floor apart form the seventh if you want more quiet.
Staff were friendly and helpful and they accommodated our requests in terms of room location etc but English is limited. The hotel caters primarily to Germans, so English is the third language.
The hotel was relatively quiet. Was some queuing for some of the food at times - Germans seem to love queues more than the English, but this isn't a criticism.
The outdoor pools were large and there were more than enough sun loungers. Unfortunately due to the wind it was really possible to spend much time around the pool so it was pretty deserted. The indoor pool was a godsend.
Overall a pleasant experience.

Such a lovely place. So very clean and the food was fantastic, a true feast. I wonder how they can cater for so many and yet provide such lovely, quality and diverse food. My hubby and I are 'foodies' and not so easily pleased. Only criticism is that the children's buffet was a bit repetitive.
Lovely location and beautiful beach. Entertainment good. Didn't have any problems getting sun beds but you do have to get out early if you want to get one of the four poster sun beds which were a real treat.
Went with a 4 year old, 13 and 15 year old. Everyone had so much fun and the place felt safe. I have not ever done Iberostar before but from here on it is Iberostar all the way for us.
Thank you Iberostar Graviotas Park for such a memorable holiday. Whilst we normally like to go to different places each holiday, we are more than tempted to return!
