First of all you have to be clear that this part of Spain is not that well known for international tourists. Its more for the local Spanish and some Portuguese tourists. Very few Brits come here and consequently it is just not really geared up for English speakers. Also, this hotel is located in what I can only describe as... More

Pros: Arrived at midnight and was given some dinner (cold meats, cheese, bread, fruit and yoghurt, which was much appreciated). Big rooms, and nice bathrooms. Good, working fridge in room, hairdryer. Staff were generally helpful, especially Ana Carmen, who really helped us out with things and spoke English. Food wasn't too bad, quite a good selection at breakfast and dinner... More

A bit tired and dated. There is a charge to use the room safe. The lighting in the hallways is movement activated, but is very slow to react and several didn't work at all so getting to and from the room is mostly in the dark. Very uncomfortable soft foam mattress. Water had to be run for at least 5... More

Lovely hotel, very clean, great selection of food at buffet Main problem is the beach and the sea - quite a walk to the beach and the sea is very murky Unfortunately our first couple of days were marred by the presence of approx. 200/300 youngsters attending a football competition Very few English people so, unless you speak Spanish, would...

Enjoyed being here. The staff were all lovely. My son especially loved the football sessions with Paedro and Alex. The food and service were great. Quite a lot of variety but the food that was supposed to be hot was sometimes only slightly warm. The staff had a good knowledge regarding food allergies. Lovely swimming pools. Just a little bit...

We are a family with two little daughters and we spent here one week last August. It is a very comfortable place, suitable for spending a relaxing time together. Even the Beach is close to the hotel, the access are not convenient at all, mainly if you are carrying a baby troley.

Just spent a week half board at the Hotel Barcelo Isla Cristina. It is a nice clean hotel with a lot of amenities. We also had an excellent view from our balcony over the pool and the beach. The restaurant was self service, which suited us. We had soup for starter each day. On 6 of the 7 days, it... More

We went on 19th June for one week and found this hotel and the surrounding area to be very quiet and relaxing. We flew with Thomsons out of East Midland Airport. The Airport was chaotic but the flight was on time and comfortable. The transfers were efficient and all in all I think we got good value for our money.... More
