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

Just love this place. Good rooms with a view, good food (half board option taken), although not as varied as our last visit, pleasant staff. We came here to chill, just before the schools turned out. A new addition to the hotel is a third pool and seating area, but unfortunately it wasn't quite ready for us to try out.... More

Last year, I had an opportunity to spend my summer time in Andalucia, Spain. I felt amazingly enchanted to see beautiful white horses running across the huge orange rocks which were not so far away from the cities with their unusual white houses. I also tried to dance flamenco - my blood became "red" again. Barcelo Isla Cristina is a... More

Isla Cristina Review The hotel is located in the small town of Cristina on the Atlantic Coast of Spain, approximately 80 Km ( an hour and half) from Faro. The transfer could be shorter depending on the drop offs prior to the hotel. The hotel faces the Atlantic and can be accessed via the gates around the boundary fence. It's... More

Once again, it was a fantastic week where we could enjoy the pool, the food, the beach, the animation with a fantastic weather. One special mention to the animation team that was amazing! They managed to animate the pool, the children and the evenings... More
