This was the first stay in the hotel during the Easter break courtesy of Golf Escapes. One of the reasons we had chosen this holiday was because it was apparently walking distance to the nearest beach (bars/restaurants and cafes). However, to our dismay, the walk was around 3.5km and more like 45minutes walk which meant you had to take the car to get there. The Marina was approximately over 5km and would have taken over an hour to walk.
On a more positive note, the golf course was well maintained and in places quite challenging. The only irritating factor was a local man trying to sell you used balls which he had pinched from players who couldn't find their balls and watching you play to see if you missed the fairway was not particularly relaxing.
Whilst the staff at the hotel were very pleasant and friendly, the waitress in the morning at breakfast was not particularly proactive in replenishing plates of fruit, yoghurt, bread, cheese, orange juice etc. Having said this, the evening staff were much more attentive but this could be partly due to the fact that there were only 2 - 6 people most evenings and the atmosphere was non existent. However, the orange juice at breakfast was fabulous.
Overall, if you are looking for a quiet getaway with very few people around then Isla Canela is good value.
