Fodor's Expert Review Risco del Gato Suites The Senses Collection

Calle Sicasumbre 2, Costa Calma, Canary Islands, 35627, Spain

A far cry from the big-box resorts that abound on Fuerteventura, this suites-only sanctuary has spectacular ocean views—it's 2 km (1 mile) to the west of Costa Calma resort and perched about 650 feet above the magnificent Playa de Sotavento. The stark-white hotel, built in 1987, is a swooping and highly distinctive collection of cuboid and oval spaces. Every suite has its own patio beside the tropical gardens and pools, which are set on different levels. The Horst Walczok restaurant serves a set menu.
