This is the perfect hotel/resort for families with children (not sure about teenagers. I would NOT advise for other audiences. Even if you have a child but don't like kids in general, it might become disturbing. This is heaven for kids. At the restaurant, I wouldn't even feel guilty if my child would start screaming, as I would in another... More

We stayed 10 days at Barcelo and really enjoyed our stay. The location is great on Isla Cristina, just by the beach. 5-10 min waking and you are in the city center with restaurants and bars. The beach is big and the sand is nice, maybe not the finest grains but good enough. The two pools were definitively sufficient for... More

The facilities are excellent, with apartments are spacious and comfortable. Food also very good with plenty of variety and quality. One negative, the tourist informer, knew only the packages that had for sale, not providing more information about the surrounding areas (rides, attractions, etc.)

We were touring the area and we thought Isla Christina it is a place worth visiting. The Hotel looked quite nice so we thought it is worth staying.We were lucky arriving early evening and without a reservation to get... More

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
