This hotel is lovely. We went with our 7yr old and 5yr old and thoroughly enjoyed it. We arrived past 11pm and they had saved some food from dinner for us (which was kind but wasnt at all suitable for the children - a plate of cold seafood inc, crabs legs and whole prawns). The hotel was clean, friendly and... More

We returned from 8 Days all inclusive at the Playacanela Hotel on Sunday and all in all had a lovely holiday. Apologies if this review seems long winded but we based our trip on reviews from trip advisor and I wanted to give as much info as possible to help others. Based on other reviews there were a couple of... More

We booked a last minute holiday to this hotel in Isla Canela in Spain. The resort itself of Isla Canela appears to be fairly new as the road leading up to the hotel in the resort was still in construction with show apartments at the top of the road. The hotel is very big with lots of rooms, very clean... More

How anybody can complain about this hotel is beyond me! Being English we never had a problem being understood from the waiters or any other staff. Our room was spotless and had a lovely view. The meals was lovely only downfall for us was breakfast, wasn't a great choice of English breakfast. All in all lovely holiday.

No problem getting a sun lounger during the day, lifeguards did a good job making sure towels didn't sit on loungers unused and keeping the kids out the adult only... More

Just returned after 11 nights here. Had a great time. Clean hotel, friendly staff. It is very Spanish, but I like that. Room was small, and two double beds pushed together. Little privacy from a 6 and 9 year old. Food was ok. Beware of undercooked meat!

The family went to this hotel having booking through a third party site convinced we would get an apartment with two sleeping rooms (we are 3 and would like our son to sleep in his own room). Unfortunately we were told this was not possible and since this was booked through a third party, we could not be moved to... More

We have just returned from a one weeks stay at this resort. Overall the hotel and facilities were very good. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The large restaurant provided a good selection of self serve meal options for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The staff were friendly enough even though the majority couldn't speak English. We had no issues with... More
