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

I stayed here as a package from jetblue getaways. Flight and hotel for a week it was a great deal. Unfortunately not as amazing as it should have been. Upon arrival we waited for a shuttle to take us there, the shuttle stops at 5 or 6 amazing hotels before you get to Barcelo. Disappointment then sets in. They assigned... More

Will never return to this place again and will not recommend anyone to stay here! There is no phone line to call anywhere...when asking staff about it, they simply lead you on by saying that it will be fixed in the morning or the next day, and so on. Often there is no water...can be in the evening or in... More
