“Rooms need upgrading”
Reviewed 21 July 2014 via mobile

I stayed at this hotel/bungalow for 2 weeks A/I, rooms for a start are not 4 star quality need an upgrade,reported shower not working 3 times,never fixed,so had cold shower 9 nights out of 14. Food was good though but very busy at certain times but that was fine. Entertainment was poor apart from 3-4 nights the entertainment bar is the only place that you can get a drink if you are A/I at night unless you pay at the other bar on the beach front. The place is far too small for the amount of people staying at the complex, I know they are building a new entertainment area. Pool area is in need of a clean but sufficient for sunbathing pool bar is ok too,beach is a stones throw away and very busy which is good. When we booked through jet 2 it was a LUXE holiday reason we booked but got an email 2 weeks before to say this was no longer available (Shocking).over all I would say it was a 7.5 out of ten could be better, maybe after upgrade I would consider going back

The Hotel is nice and clean - but the pool area was very disappointing.
i am aware that there is going to be a new one built and then the Hotel will be better - but this didnt really help on our holiday.

We have just returned from a family holiday and had a great time at the Barcelo Castillo Beach Resort.

The short transfer time is a bonus with young children and the location of the Hotel itself is ideal - on the beach and within a very short walking distance to the shops and restaurants.

Our group stayed in three separate apartments and they were all stylish and furnished to a high standard.

We had booked on an All Inclusive basis and found the food to generally be good, with a wide range of dishes. There were queues at times for the popular items and I would presume that this will be worse over the busy school holiday period.

A few negatives - as others have mentioned, for the size of this hotel the evening entertainment location is ridiculously small and inadequate. It means that if you want to have an evening drink in somewhere with a bit of atmosphere you probably have to go elsewhere.

The main Pool looks nice from a distance but up close there are a lot of tiles missing and it appears dirty - very off putting with young children.

Finally, the Pools are all salt water. This may suit some but it took our children a few days to get used to it!

Overall, a good value Hotel in a great location.

We travelled as a group - 4 adults and I toddler. We stayed for two weeks half board.

Our rooms were perfectly placed, one row back from the pool and 5 minutes from the beach. The rooms seemed a little hastily redecorated and the bathrooms need an overhaul. However it was adequate and the air con worked well. The terraces were lovely (with sun beds) but could have done with a regular sweep.

The pool areas were very disappointing, tiles were missing from the feature pools which ruined the overall look and unfortunately the flooring around the pool by the beach was always dirty. We never saw anyone sweeping or hosing the floor during our two week stay....not good.

The food was great, plenty of choice and very tasty.

We didn't watch the evening entertainment but the childrens disco was good. It is a shame that there aren't more bars in the hotel as there isn't anywhere to sit and relax during the evenings. I know the hotel are building a new entertainment hub so hopefully that should fix that problem.

We had a lovely time and although the man made beach was perfect for our toddler, I prefer corralejo and jandia and would probably not return.

This was one of my best holidays I've ever had, all of the staff were very friendly and helpful and the apartments were very clean and modern. There was always something to do whether it was relaxing around one of the many pools or swimming with sea lions in the bay two minutes away from the apartment. This is an ideal place to stay for all types of people as there is something to do for everyone, I would definitely go back here again.

Great location for kids and beach. Doing a little work at harbour at moment but not really much of an inconvenience. Staff fantastic, food good and nice little kids club. Variety of pools around the place that spreads people out nicely.
