8/10 Very good

Relaxing and very family friendly.
This resort is very family friendly, lots of activities around the pool for all ages. I encourage you to get the all inclusive. Nice walking trail that parallels the beach and easy beach access. There is an exercise room. They offered yoga and water exercise classes. The lounge never had a bartender while we were there. It does have ping pong, pool, and other table games. It's a lovely salt cleaned pool that is treated and cleaned daily. Closed at 7:30 pm and opened between 10 & 11 am. When we were there. Mosquitoes are bad at dusk so don't leave your balcony door open. I didn't know about the pay parking until i arrived. The food was generous and plentiful, and overall quite good, but most of the grilled meats were overdone. We had a relaxing and comfortable stay.

4/10 Fair

Swimming pool not climatized water at about 21 celsius, additionally if you leave your hammock vacant for one hour they have a draconian policy of removing your personal belongings from your pool hammock. This information was not provided at check in. Some tiles by the poll broken. Hotel parking 15 euros per night expensive. Buffet food was good some days better than others. Bar staff and waiters helpful. Entertainment crew friendly. These points raised with customer services who listened and encouraged me to write to them but was unable to give me a business card. I felt management hiding behind the Barcelo name seemed sure business would continue coming and not very interested in making our stay more relaxing

One of spains best
My wife and i visited here for a short break during our spanish holiday. Location was amazing close to the beach and great pool. Breakfast buffet had plenty to satisfy everyone . Found most of the staff to be helpful and could speak some english. Just a short stroll out of the back gate to market stalls and restaurants.

Promising doesn't quite deliver...
It was misleading in that it had a beach. The beach is across the street and the hotel has no beach club or anything. During low season it's not a big problem but I imagine during high... I rated service low because of its policies not its staff. Staff was friendly and nice. Some of the policies - restaurant closed (I can't remember if one or the other) at 22:00-23:00. I arrived later than that and had to starve until breakfast. I thought maybe the minibar had some nuts or something- nope the "minibar" is basically room service which closes at the same time as the restaurant. They charge for using the safe. Seriously?! It's only 3€ a night but this is about the principle. Finally I had an open account and they still asked me for a 10€ deposit for the towel . Just annoying and impractical.
