Ok so my family and I were expecting the worst when we arrived at Talanquera due to reviews. Once we got there the staff was nice and we said to ourselves ok this isn't that bad. Once we started to walk around the resort we started to notice that there were no people around. It was completely secluded and it... More

We went this past weekend to Talanquera at Juandolio, and I. Really got pretty scared as I read the reviews, but we did have a nice stay and had a lot of fun!! In fact the hotel needs renovations and upgradings, the a/c was old, even though was working very well, the TV was old too, the beds were ok,... More

So I expected something horrible, but instead I am having a great time. The hotel is super cheap, everything is included, alcohol as well. Food is simple and great which helps you to watch weight. Hotel is located on the beach. 30 seconds away from my room. Of course it's a little ran down. And need some fixing, but overall... More

The hotel was what we expected after several reviews. The only and biggest problem was the bed which should be changed in several rooms - it was too soft and brought me some problems, but only in my room from two rooms. Better than waiting for reception try to solute by yourself - usuall maňana. As we do not use... More

First off, all of the unhappy, miserable people in the world should keep their comments to themselves. A vacation is what you make of it. The Talanquera Resort, is far superior than any bad review. The staff is top notch. From the reception desk to security guards, the bartenders (ask for Pedro or Vladimir), to the entertainment guys (Eddie) to... More

You will be disappointed. The hotel is under the process of converting it into the cheap weekend chalet for the locals. Overally, old hotel without the will to refurbish and remodel the services according to the new standards. Unfortunately - because the hotel has a good location and a marvellous beach...

Very old hotel for local clients than for foreign tourists who want to relax in beautiful surroundings. Hotel seems like its going out of business, which is seen not only in appearance and facilities, but also the reluctance and lack of professionalism of staff, lack of services offered, etc. Quite a bad meal or rather lax management of the hotel,...

No water-either hot or cold in room. Door lock did not work. No light in bathroom. Sliding door did not lock. Bar was out of white wine. Refused to give us a new room. No matter what your budget do not stay here-stay home if necessary.

This is the third time I have stayed at Talanquera. The first time when it was still a Barcelo property and it was pretty good as a 2-3 star beach hotel. It's been all down hill since. I will never stay there again. It is cheap and you get what you pay for. Room: TV not working. Tile in bath... More

Stayed at the resort only one night, because it was relatively close to the airport, and we had a very early flight. All in all, the stay was quite pleasurable. We had two very good meals, noon and evening, and a decent box lunch ready for us in the morning. The food at both meals was more than adequate, well... More
