Pierre & Vacances Holiday Village Fuerteventura Origo Mare
What We Love
- An action-packed holiday village in the Canaries, on the tip of FuerteventuraThe huge range of entertainment and activities, let alone the mammoth 11-pool water fun area
- Relaxing with a cocktail by one of the palm-lined pools
- Stylishly decorated villas, with their own fully equipped kitchens
There’s one thing we can guarantee, you won’t find yourself short of things to do at the four-star Pierre & Vacances Fuerteventura Origo Mare on the tip of the second largest Canary Island. This holiday village is a serious power player when it comes to all-out entertainment, with an incredible volcanic-themed ‘Craterpark’ water fun area at the centre of all the action.
Picture a dizzying 11 swimming pools with a wave pool and water slides. Don’t worry though, this isn’t some huge, tasteless resort – they’ve still paid plenty of attention to style and design. You’ll get to slink around a glam oasis of pools lined with palm trees, but if all that lazing around wears thin you could always get stuck into paddle tennis, boules or even a round on the 18-hole mini golf course.
Afterwards, head to one of the multiple restaurants to refuel after a hard day of chilling out, before decamping back to your stylish villa to unwind.
How to Get There
Not long returned from 10 days holiday here and I beg everyone to ignore the negative comments on here. Me and my wife booked it as our belated honeymoon so we wanted something relaxed and out the way we hired a car for the duration of our stay so we wasn't restricted to times with the free buses. The food was lovely different theme every day and the pialla getting cooked fresh outside was my absolute fave. Our bins were emptied everyday and towels and bedding every 3 days the apartment was opposite the main complex (403) and altho the pavements were a little crumbled it definitely isn't even worth mentioning they're not dangerous and 100% better than most English pavements. The adults only pool was lovely spent hours lazing on loungers with our all inclusive cocktails (try the banana liqueur if I didn't drink the whole years supply) snacks are available inbetween meal times which include chips burgers fruit sausages bread and at the bars there is always fruit nuts crisps and biscuits. Stalls twice a week where you can buy gifts and the children can get their hair braided But the thing that made our holiday is the staff. Such lovely bubbly people who went above and beyond to make our stay the best. Fanny at the restraunt is a little gem and a credit to this place I wanted to bring her home with me she really is adorable and such a lovely lady. Hector on the bar had us in stitches every night he is hillarious. Frank at the restraunt was very helpful and told us the best places to go when we asked and all his recommendations where spot on. The manager was lovely too making sure he greeted everyone and that everyone was ok. The photagrapher was lovely and took some fab pictures around the complex of us. The parrot man was funny and made a point of coming over and greeting us on his second visit we will be coming back next year with my daughter and can't wait. Thankyou to everyone involved that made our stay amazing it truly was the best holiday ever x
Just home from an amazing 9 nights in this place. I cannot fault ! it's amazing. Spotless clean. Yes it's out of town and taxis cost us 24e each way. There was 4 adults and two toddlers so it was working out at 6e per adult in a mini bus. Nicest taxi men ever. Staff were so friendly and helpful. Crater park here saved our lives with a 3 and a 2 year old it was hard to keep them occupied but the small kids pool with four slides kept them entertained for hours. We were self catering but ate in Mavericks the on site bar twice during our stay. Food was good nothing special but enough to keep us going . I think another bar/restaurant on site would be the making of this place. We stayed in room 402 and 408 and it was so handy to the receptionist. One other small thing is that we had a two year old who love to run off on us every chance he got so maybe a little gate on the entrance to the villas garden would be a brilliant idea giving parents a little bit of extra peace of mind. Try the Baileys Frappes with the caramel sauce at the pool bar. Yummm! Corralejo itself is beautiful. The Marina is paradise do not miss it! Also flag beach is one of the most beautiful beaches ive seen . Just wish we were back 😔
We have just returned from this resort, it is really a very nice place, the villas are good and spacious, the pools are great for the kids, the food was good but it could have been hotter. the entertainment was good its just a shame the room used is way too small, if you want a seat you need to be there very very early..The only real downside to this place is that it is far away from anything, the hotel does lay on a free bus twice a day to get you to the beach, you need to book this a day in advance. a taxi to the beach will cost you approx £25 euros each way. Having said this i would recommend this hotel if you just want to get away from it all, but not if you like to walk looking in the shops.
Brilliant holiday, would definitely book again with jet 2, All the staff are very well mannered and very accommodating. Villa was very clean and a pleasure to stay in Roberto from reception gave a very informative greeting.. 5 star from me!
Brilliant holiday, would definitely recommend, amazing place and wonderful staff
We arrived, after a transfer of around 90 minutes, and was quickly checked in, we we're told that the restaurant would be reopening at 11pm for us and taken to our villa on a golf cart
The villa - It was spotless, I could not fault it, down stairs, there was a well equipped kitchen, washing machine, dishwasher proper oven and hob and a big fridge freezer.
a living room with sofa bed and TV, the kids were happy as we had Disney channel, there was a walk in shower room, with a small hairdryer, I would recommend taking your own as this was not very powerful, but did the job. There was also a twin room with 2 single beds
Upstairs was another bathroom with a shower over a bath and a double bedroom, with sliding doors onto the roof top terrace.
The food and drink - We went all inclusive and was not disappointed, as a vegetarian I was a little limited on range of food but the rest of my party had a good range of varied food to try from including a live cooking station that they loved. Each night was a different theme, breakfast was also very good.
The drinks, soft drinks, hot drinks and juice was available from a self serve machine in the restaurant, water park and bar so there was no issues with the kids, the beer on tap for AI was San Miguel so no complaints
The pools/Waterpark - the Oasis pools were closed so we went in the waterpark most days, never had an issue getting a bed, the pools were brill and the kids were more than happy spending time here, as were we. there are 3 different pools with slides for different ages, a climbing wall pool which was a little too deep for my 8 year old and a good wave pool.
Animation team - they were amazing, made the holiday really good, the evening entertainment was enjoyable and really fun, they were amazing with the kids. Also around the pool there was beer pong games, cooking demos and cocktails making demos, as well as dancing lessons and aqua aerobics, definitely something for everyone
We were in the 500s and were quite far away from the main part but this was a gentle 10 min walk in the sun, not that bad
I would recommend hiring a car from the airport, the journey to the hotel will be around 45 mins and you can explore the island, would recommend Porto de Rosario and the lagoons at Cotilla
We will definitely be staying here again and could not recommend it enough
