Hotel is lovely, view from our room 416 was fantastic. Food good variety but sometimes busy in restaurant. Entertainment kept the kids busy although was only done in Spanish so hard to understand. Pool was great. Beach lovely. Would definitely return.

Having stayed in the resort before (although at different hotel) I had no reservations about returning to area... I know it's Spain and I like staying in traditional resorts but having had a very bad racist experience from a fellow guest, the lack of English spoken was difficult! Food ok not great... We stayed all inclusive and never have I... More

We rarely visit the same hotel twice but decided to go back to Playacanela Hotel a year after our first visit and take some friends with us. The hotel was just as clean and friendly as we remembered it. The all inclusive was still worth it with international drink brands on offer and the food remains a good standard and... More

Stayed 18-25 June. Arrived late and had a cold plate meal in the restaurant for us which was good. We went for a superior room on the 5th floor (3 staying). It was smaller than lead to believe, 2 double beds pushed together and not a lot of walking space in room. Room was clean and balcony big. Had to... More

We have just returned from this hotel and have had a lovely time. The area is flat, quiet and sophisticated with only a few hotels and modern apartments. The area has a few boutique type shops and a mixture of restaurants about a 10 min. walk away but Brits beware if you go on holiday expecting everybody to speak English... More
