Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

All staff were welcoming, friendly, nothing was too much trouble. I needed stitches but the staff did everything to help. Rooms clean, spacious and cleaned daily. Beds were lovely and comfortable with fluffy pillows. Restaurant was our favourite place to eat in the evening. The regular waiter was funny, helpful and great to talk to Only negative, the cooked breakfast was always cold, independent of the time you ate breakfast, but the selection was amazing. Well done to everyone.

Beautiful hotel. Immaculately clean. The outside area is fabulous with lots of space, a nice outdoor pool, a trampoline, play area, volleyball net and a skate park. The hotel itself is colour full and fun. The staff were immensely helpful whether it be finding toothbrushes and armbands when our luggage didn’t turn up, or offering advice for restarts visit. We stayed in a family room - there are five of us. There was enough space and it was well thought through with big drawers beneath the beds for storage. The balcony was large so that gave us a good outdoor space too. As the balcony was north facing it never received any sun which was a bit disappointing. It’s a five minute walk to the beach where there is lots of surf available. The beaches are beautiful and well worth a visit. The town itself is small but friendly and there is enough there to explore. The breakfasts at the hotel were delicious and always a bit of variety. As the hotel got a bit busier as summer progressed there was some waiting around and things did take a bit of time to be refilled. Would highly recommend this place if you are looking for a slightly active holiday on a bit more of a luxurious space.

Great hotel with fab facilities, including heated pool, skate park, trampoline, tightrope & volleyball. Super friendly and helpful staff. Only thing not clear from website is that no group lessons for under 12’s. Plenty of cheaper surf schools available on the beach though who happily teach young kids so no major problem. Food is amazing and the shrimp pasta is the best I’ve ever tasted!!

This is a lovely relaxed hotel with comfortable beds, good food and a nice pool. Great location and friendly, helpful staff. Baleal has beautiful beaches and the surf was ok given it’s not the season. Teenagers enjoyed it. We hired mountain bikes and saw some of the area. Hope to return x

We booked a family room, double bed with a bunk bed for 2 nights and paid 170€ a night for a couple with a 5-year-old child. Unfortunately the hotel does not live up to the price. The hotel has a retro pop style which is a matter of taste but unfortunately does not bring a cozy atmosphere. It is in a residential area and our ground floor room overlooks a residential building. Rooms are bright and were cleaned relatively well upon arrival. Unfortunately there was no cleaning during our stay. No water and no coffee in the room. Small fridge that is not cold. Unfortunately, the sauna and steam bath were not switched on, so the sauna was not usable for me. Breakfast is a sad offering with bad coffee and partly unripe fruit. The outdoor offers in the large garden of the hotel are great, a heated outdoor pool, a climbing mountain and a skate park offer a lot of fun

Family of 6 - 15, 12, 9 and 5 yr old kids with parents spent 5 days between Christmas and New Year. Really lovely new year dinner gala with music. Really fresh, spacious, clean rooms with different cartoons in each room. Family room with double bunk bed perfect for a family of 4. Facilities included outdoor heated pool, skateboard park and indoor games room. Can rent bikes, (including e bikes) skateboards, scooters, wet suits and surf boards. Close to beach. Really friendly staff and manager. Reasonable prices but we did travel off peak so hotel was very quiet. Nice restaurant bar called Alter Ego nearby. Perfect base for a surf holiday.

This is been a brilliant family holiday. The hotel is super clean with excellent amenities. Our children loved the games room, climbing wall, skateboards and pool. The food is excellent quality and reasonably priced. The staff are really friendly and the decor is super cool. The surf school is truly excellent. Quality equipment and expert teaching. We learnt so quickly with there clear and attentive teaching. They are not confined to one part of the beach, so for each of our lessons they took us to the best spot along the beautiful beach. The conditions are fantastic. The hotel is a very short walk to the beach (4 mins) and to local beach bars. I’m sure we will return.
