This was our fourth visit to the Playabella. As usual we had a very pleasant stay. Lovely helpful, friendly staff in particular Sandra at reception. Great location on the beach. Close to the town of Cancelada where there are some very good restaurants. Will definitely be back again.

He always had a smile on his face and is a credit to the hotel. We weren't as happy with our room this time (464) as we found it too be noisy at night. This... More
