“Castillo's no castle”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 December 2013

Just arrived home after a weeks stay at this hotel.
We had a two room bungalow at the heart of the complex (2000-area).
The closeness to both the reception and the heated pool was excellent. The bungalows are good sized and quite enough for 2 adults and 2 children.

-The heated pool was heated... during sunny days, for some strange reason it was not heated during those days that were cloudy. The heat were turned off and no hot water came in to the pool.

-Cockroaches. There are tons of them! Keep your lights on and your food well sealed!

We stayed at the Barcelo Castillo between 30/11/13 & 6/12/13. The hotel, being in a man made resort is pretty bland with no Spanish feel whatsoever. Beach was not particulalry clean, although if you walk further around clearer water and cleaner sand can be found. To be honest we found the staff rather unfriendly but the worst thing about the hotel is the food in the restaurant. There is a good variety but everything is served tepid to cold. We found ourselves using the microwave everytime in order for the food to be palatable. Other guests however did not seem to think this and we met someone for whom this was their 7th visit so something must be right. I don't think we are particularly fussy, we simply want hot food.
The hotel aslo charges for Wifi which is only available in the reception area. Do not waste your time purchasing this, there are free Wifi spots available further round the beach.
On taking a trip around the island we found the best beaches were in the North West-Go here for a great beach holiday. Avoid this hotel unless sitting around the pool is your thing. This area together with the entertainment one is being upgraded soon so things should get better.
Looking at other reviews we do seem to be in the minority about the quality of this hotel but I'm afraid it wasn't for us.

Room Tip: Ask for Balcony room in the "5000" block. We did but unfortunately were not offered one. T...

Just returned from a week at Barcelo Castillo in a bungalow. This was our 4th visit to the complex. We have stayed at hotel and apartment then twice at a bungalow. The superior bungalow on 1000 area opposite the seafront was a reasonable size but very basically equipped. Bedroom very dark in fact the whole bungalow poorly lit. No dressing table or work top space too little drawer space. We stayed 2 years ago in a standard bungalow and to be honest this one was no different except it had been painted and had a larger tv and was more expensive. Food ok but but basically tastes much the same each night though supply of fruit good. I agree with a previous review that there was little meat or fish. Bad that no free Wi Fi even in reception and safe was 21 euros a week which is ridiculous. We have stayed in other 3 or 4 star hotels in Spain where the safe is a digital setting you set yourself and is always free. Surely a hotel wants its guests to relax and feel that their valuables are safe at no extra expense? Didn't see entertainment as went out each night. Lots of good places to go in the area in the evening. Sugar bar upstairs Tommy Nutters and Lord Nelson our favourites. We love Caletta and will go again staff friendly and complex spotlessly clean.

Big believer of you get what you pay for so take this as more of a personal observation rather than a moan. We stayed at the Barcelo "Main" hotel next door in February and was impressed with the level of service (drinks served to you at meal times and waiter service in the evenings around the bar) and quality of food for an AI hotel (easily could eat 2-3 different main courses each evening). Not ones for going back the same place again thought we'd try the Castillo Beach as still a Barcelo group complex and about the same money having upgraded to sea view suite. As with the rest of the reviews, it is tired in places and the food quite poor quality (never eaten so little meat and fish) when compared with next door which was really disappointing. Evening bar and show area is very poor (again compared to a full A/C theatre next door). In short, spend the little bit extra and go to the main hotel.

Room Tip: 2000 block (sea view) ask for 1st floor not ground

Had a wonderful stay here with my friend the first week of December. The food was excellent. Our room was out of this world. The weather was glorious and the activities at the hotel kept us amused. Can't see why anyone would moan or complain about anything at this resort. The staff were all friendly and very polite and helpful.
Would def recommend this hotel to anyone.

Room Tip: We upgraded to the luxury 2 bed suite in room 5122 - well worth it !
