I've stayed here one week in early june 2013, on half board and liked a lot, even if I think there are points to improve. Let's start my evaluation. First by the bedrooms, I stayed in a normal one, they are big with a great bathroom and spotless clean. Another great amenity in the room was the tv, a lcd that allowed the connection of an external hard drive, that way we weren't stuck in regular and local tv channels. Second, about the food, in this vacation i chose half board for two reasons, it would allow me to eat less and explore the area near the marina, and it ended being a good option. The food for breakfast was normal, the coffee was good and hot, what is not normal in Spain. In dinner time, there wasn't so much variety as in other hotels i've stayed (like Barceló nearby) but it was well cooked and seasoned and didn't tasted all the same. Third, the common areas, this was where the worst spots were. Some places and equipments needed additional maintenance, being replaced or cleaned, i'm talking about the elevators, the pool chairs, the toboggans, the climatized pool. I've also found some admistrative problems, the keycards didn't work well, opening the doors and in the restaurant, have forgotten sending the Cava they offered me to my room when I've asked, the air conditioning rule (only turn on when temperature rises above 30, mentioned in another review, and that I've witnessed) is stupid in a 4 star hotel. A word to, for me, the best the hotel offers, the service, almost everybody was sympathetic and caring enough to make you feel like in home. With the top in the animation team, Ana and Pako, being able to, with few resources, deliver quality shows with a lot of fun that allowed guests socialize and breaking the ice. The way, otherwise other hotels, those shows were focused in families and involved kids, allowed experiences different from the usual in this kind of resort and that I'm tired of. Finally, the location, the beach is 2 steps away, but I've been there only once, so I've no opinion, and the marina, with all the bars and restaurants is at 5 minutes walking. It should have an atm machine in the hotel, there is none on Isla Canela and it's annoying to move to Ayamonte to withdraw some cash.
