Three generations of us had a wonderful time. We have spent many holidays in Isla Canela but this was the best rental yet. The apartment was excellent and well equipped; we even had use of the buckets and spades for the beach. Indeed, the whole complex was very clean and well maintained, including the pools. There were sufficient sun loungers even at peak season and the gardens were a tranquil place to read.
As advertised, there was direct access to the beach and to a walkway and cycle path lined with palm trees and wrought iron benches which skirts the beach. The walkway stretches to Isla Canela Playa on one side and Punta del Moral, the harbour, on the other. We exercised here every morning when it was like rush hour with joggers, roller bladers, power walkers and cyclists.
Isla Canela, almost an island but attached to the mainland by a series of canals, has a beach resort, a harbour and a golf course; what more could you possibly want.
