Picked this hotel at random since we wanted somewhere to stay for one night whilst travelling to Portugal. What an amazing find - we were the only Brits there, a few Germans and Dutch but overwhelmingly Spanish. Perfect for us since the regime at the hotel is very Spanish - breakfast until 11am, Dinner until 11pm. Huge room and balcony... More

We're a family of four, children 10 and 12. Hotel was great, staff were lovely, food full of variety and tastes, enjoyed the evening entertainment. We were on an all inclusive, so it was a real treat for us. Enjoyed the cocktail of the day after a hard day's sunbathing! My husband and I both had a go at water... More

I spent a week at the Barcelo Isla Cristina Hotel. I found that the staff were excellent - really polite, attentive, helpful, smiling and a pleasure to deal with. The room was well serviced every day. I loved the variety of the buffet at all meals, and the different activities in different days, such as Aqua Zumba (the lady in... More

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

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...
