7 nights from £695 playitas fuerteventura

Playitas is Europe's largest sports and fitness resort and a brilliant year-round destination for those looking to stay fit or get fitter.

This exceptional 4* health and fitness resort also happens to be great value too!  You can choose to stay in the hotel, the aparthotel or a private villa.  All are clean and smart but fairly basic, as the price would suggest.  But you will not be spending much time in your room with so much on offer around you.  In addition to the comprehensive daily programme of free classes (everything from circuit training to spinning, pilates to zumba, and sun salutations to step classes), there is a further selection of daily classes on offer which carry a small charge (€2 or €3). 

The resort is also very popular with road and mountain biking enthusiasts.  Other sports at Playitas include tennis, badminton and golf.  For water sports, an independent outfit offers sailing, kayaking and kite surfing. 

Playitas is located on a broad sweeping beach so, if you feel like it, you can head down for a swim and sunbathing - or go to one of the swimming pools for a relaxing afternoon in the sunshine.  If you feel like treating yourself to a little pampering, the spa might just be the ideal sanctuary for you.

Playitas is a haven of wellbeing and peacefulness, ideal for single guests and couples who want to enjoy nature, relaxation, tranquillity and sport.

If you're travelling with children, there's a free kids' club for 4 - 12 year olds and a fantastic water slide and childrens' swimming pool too.  There's also a complimentary kids' sports academy in school summer holidays (up to around the 2nd week of August) and in October half term, offering coaching in swimming, tennis, golf, badminton, beach volleyball, mini-triathlon and football.

There's a good choice of restaurants at the resort and if you want to eat healthily (like many fitness enthusiasts staying there) you can easily do so.

Fuerteventura has a remarkable year round climate.  The coldest months are December to March but still with highs of 21C / 70F whilst, for the rest of the year, you may expect temperatures to be in the high 70s / low 80s (24C - 28C).  There is almost no rain from April to October.
