“family vacation in the sun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2014

this is my third stay at this hotel and i intend to continue to come here for future holidays. The hotel is very clean with exceptional rooms.The food is excellent giving a wide selection at each meal. The staff and entertainers go out of their way to make you feel that you are a special customer. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. Having been her e on previous occasions i decided to to take my daughters and grand children this time.

Had a lovely holiday here with my sister who is 62 and my son who is 10 no one left out food gorgeous and the staff really friendly. My only small criticism would be no drawers in the room, these help to keep these lovely rooms tidy and seperate clothes.

Great family hotel, staff are great especially the entertainers. Kids happy = parents happy. free bus to the beach and maspalomas, superb. Rooms clean and tidy although showers luke warm and slow. Pool area great at the top pool, quieter than the other smaller pool so something for everyone..Dining room needs sorting though, bit chaotic so be worse in the summer but overall a great hotel.

Came here on monday checked in very quick, room was okay but not the best.the T.V was all Spanish except sky news! Absolutely disgusting that no English language option was available. We was all inclusive that was rubbish as I have to extra for the 'cocktails' which was only €2.50 but still it still be should off been free due to us being all inclusive. The food was all the same every day, undercooked meat, undercooked vegetables, and mostly cold. The breakfast was disgusting all bland and no effort put into it. As for entertainment don't even go there they played the same songs over and over mostly all spainish very boring and no imagination to the entertainment. The wifi is €7euros a day total rip off. I would say save ur money and go Benedorm ur have lots of fun, more English environment and good value for ur money. I will never ever come here again.

This hotel is ultra modern and very clean throughout. The facilities and services are definitely 4 star. It was our first time as All Inclusive guests and we didn't expect the food to be quite so lovely. As vegetarians there was enough choice - but much more for meat eaters. I always like to travel to new places so I will definitely look up any other Barcelo hotels around the world, based on the professional management of this hotel and their general attention to detail.

Stayed at this hotel from 14-21april, after arriving joining a very long queue to check in, offered 1st floor room, I stated I booked high floor months ago, rather rude man on reception, he hummed and Arrhed gave us a room on 3rd floor, my friend and I checked this out, not very clean and massive trees within touching distance of room and very dark. Phoned reception and spoke to different man and told him problems with room. No problem changed to 6 the floor-ideal.
Finally unpacked went to bar area for drink and a les Dawson kind of piano player playing bang bang bang! Food repetitive, bland and warm, salads strange as well. Lots of Germans Italians very few English voices around.nighttime entertainment dreadful, lots of steps so immobile foe some. Terrace for sunbathing ok, but toilets and drinks a distance away.
Wouldn't stay here again, air con broke hotel fixed it with insulating tape cistern broke, quickly fixed tho, no kettle etc in rooms, bathroom door sliding frosted glass door, ok if with family, spouses, embarrassing if with friends, hear every little noise! This is only 3star very over rated.sorry but truth hurts.
