“Another great holiday, but!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2014

Not long back from a summer holiday at Islantilla Hotel and Golf Resort. This was our 5th visit in total and our second summer visit. As always the staff at this resort are great and we always find the service, attention and assistance to be excellent. Special mention to the two Isabels, who are very attentive and friendly in the dining room. The rooms are very spacious but as others have previously said in reviews, a bit of a refurbishment in terms of carpet cleaning and a repaint of the bedrooms would not go amiss. The golf courses (27 holes ) were again in excellent shape although again 9 holes were closed for the first 9 days of our holiday. Additionally the course is heavily watered overnight and in the morning some areas are extremely wet, particularly around some of the tees. We arrived in early June for a 3 week stay. During the first two weeks the hotel was comfortably busy. However the 3rd week at the end of June became absolutely chaotic as far as evening dining was concerned. The Spanish schools had broken up for the holidays but this was the case when we went last year and there were no problems then. The hotel had put on some kind of offer which appeared to trigger a stampede in the dining room at night. The thought of having a pleasant , relaxing evening meal went out the window. It was like getting food from a buffet in a rugby scrum. We resorted to getting down as soon as the dining room opened at 8.00 pm and getting out before most of the guests arrived. People going in later on, were actually in a substantial queue to get tables. We felt sorry for the staff who were put under real pressure.There was also a lack of apparent organisation at the grill which was not there at the start of our holiday. At times one chef was left on his own doing the cooking on the grill, cooking pasta and carving joints of meat whilst all the other chefs vanished behind the scenes, resulting in more chaos. Although on half board we went out to eat twice during our final week to avoid the crush. We will possibly return to Islantilla but not when the Spanish schools have broken up for their summer holidays.

Room Tip: Rooms not overlooking the swimming pool are obviously quieter. Rooms facing the golf course get the...

Our 1st visit here and we found the staff, the rooms, the buffet restaurant all good. The club house restaurant is a very pleasant place to sit after a round of golf with lovely views over part of the course. The spa was good too & I enjoyed the indoor pool which is in a conservatory type building near the gardens & outdoor pool. Some of our party felt that not having a door between the loo and the rest of the bathroom was a bit strange but it didn't bother us. We would stay here again.

I can really recommend this place. There is a lot of things you can do in this hotel even though you don´t play golf.
Staff is really friendly, and food is great.
The rooms are spacious and clean, and the beds are awesome :)

This was our second visit to Islantilla golf and once again it did not disappoint. We went primarily to play golf and found the course in superb condition. The three 9 hole courses offer plenty of variety over a few days. The hotel is excellent and the staff welcoming and friendly. Rooms are spacious and well equipped. There is a plentiful choice of food on offer for breakfast and dinner, and the golf clubhouse offfers a tasty menu of lunchtime options. Definitely hope to go back sometime.

Third visit and the service and value for money remain outstanding. The public rooms are fine, as befits a four star hotel but the spacious bedrooms are beginning to look a little tired, requiring new sofas in the junior suites and careful re-decoration. Nevertheless we paid just £714, per couple for 7 nights DBB and five days of unlimited golf, including the junior suites for four couples and airport transfers, via the excellent Your Golf Travel. The food remains first rate and the restaurant staff efficient and hard working, our favourite waitress is Isabel. The golf course was in tip-top condition and take with a pinch of salt the review which says it is too easy for anyone over 18 handicap, we four men are eleven, two twelves and a thirteen and while we all hit 34 points none of us could reach 36, ie play to handicap. The Staff in the golf shop are absolutely superb friendly and super-helpful doing everything they can to meet guests playing needs. Best buffet in Spain possibly. Be aware large groups from Scandinavia visit if you need buggies or electric trollies pre-book as there are some sizeable walks on concrete paths from greens to tees. By the way if your a none golfer and do not want quiet and seclusion stay away.

Room Tip: Worth getting a junior suite lots of room for clubs and storage

We were a group of 9, five of us women non golfers, we were there to celebrate a special birthday, so the 4 men were very happy to play the golf included in the special offer, we women on the other hand were a little disappointed, there was nothing for non golfers to do, except swim or go to the spa...... okay for a while but not for the 3 days we were there.
Don't get me wrong there is nothing wrong with the hotel it's lovely, with very nice and helpful staff, but please put something in or something for us non golfers to do.
And one other thing, there is no ATM machine there, if you want cash, you have to travel 15 mins in a car to the nearest bank, so unless you want to pay with a card take you cash with you.

Room Tip: rooms facing the front get more sun during the day

I stayed here with 15 other ladies for a week long golf break. The deal was good value for money. The golf course was very challenging in places but most enjoyable. The hotel facilities were excellent and the rooms were also good. The breakfast buffet was plentiful with egg dishes cooked to order. Dinner was a bit disappointing as several of the cooked options did not always appeal but there was always a good selection of salads, cold meats etc. We would have like to get drinks or snacks in the hotel during the day, but the bar was only open evenings so had to go across to the golf course for food and drinks. The staff were friendly and helpful and overall this wss a good value resort.
