We have just spent 5 nights at the Playacanela, Isla Canela and thoroughly enjoyed it. Due to some not so great reviews we were not expecting too much from the hotel but it was great. All the staff (from cleaners and reception staff to the fabulous entertainment team). The restaurant was very busy at times but we expected this due... More

Hotel was quite disappointing - full of Spanish, fully booked (which is quite strange, we had problems with extending our stay in a room because of our late departure). Nobody speaks English, without basic Spanish it's impossible to get any information. The restaurant looks rather like a school canteen. Food was so-so. It was better to come early, because later...

Also there was a living room with a fridge, TV and a sofa bed - more than enough room for my wife and... More
