After a week on this resort I would like to make a few suggestions: - The way plastic is used should be rethought. All the plastic cups at the pool could be washed and reused instead of going to the trash. When I tried to use my own reusable plastic cup, I was informed that it is against the rules. So I stopped having drinks at the pool, as I don’t want to contribute to the massive footprint it causes. - We could have the option of room service without collecting the towels every day, as it contributes to unnecessary waste of water (something like a board on the bathroom wall saying “Did you know that by keeping your towel one more day you are saving [x] litres of water? Leave them on the ground only when you think it’s time for them to be replaced for new ones”). - It could have more healthy food, especially at breakfast time, like granola, all grain cereals, something to spread on bread like peanut butter (instead of only dairy, Nutella, sweets or butter). - More vegetarian and vegan options I believe our world is going towards a future where people worry more about their health and the health of our planet. So I don’t see myself coming back to this resort unless it takes some steps to become more sustainable.

Dear guest, Firstly we would like to thank you for taking the time to share your impressions regarding your recent stay at our Barceló Punta Umbría Beach Resort hotel. It is only through feedback such as yours that we are able to maintain and improve upon the service that we provide to our guests. We regret your disappointment with our breakfast buffet as we strive to ensure a wide array of options for both guests with sweet tooth and those looking for healthy options to kickstart the day; therefore, we always ensure a variety of hot and cold, sweet and salty options as well as fresh fruits, different kinds of cereals and yogurts. Secondly to help protect the environment, we have implemented an initiative aimed at wasting less water and energy whilst minimising the use of bleach and other contaminants. As a result, guests may choose to have their room cleaned according to the regular schedule or less frequently and taking advantage of the discount we offer for this good practice. Thank you again for your visit and constructuve critics, our primary goal being to assure our guests feel comfortable and fully enjoy their visits, we are eager to regain your confidence during another occasion if you gave us that chance. Sincerely, Duarte Vasconcelos General Manager Barceló Punta Umbría Beach Resort

Hotel's Favorite
Stayed for 4 nights whilst working at the ETU Duathlon Championships. Lovely clean hotel with attentive staff. The hotel was very busy with people there for the event and other residents but the staff were friendly and helpful. The only slight negative was that I’m used to having a kettle in a room and there wasn’t one.

Lovely resort in a beautiful location ,shame we had some issues that spoiled it for us which would have made our stay much more enjoyable. I am not one to make lengthy reviews but i did have a few issues. Firslty I had an issue with the pool towels, at check in we paid a €50 (family of 5) deposit for them and were told to pick them up from the pool kiosk rather than just have them handed over at reception. When we headed there there were no towels available. The following day we went to the kiosk again to be told there were still no towels available. Imagine this with 3 kids wanting to use the pool. On my way to reception to enquire about the towels i did see towels being handed out at the VIP area, however, when i got to reception I was told there were none available as they had an issue with their laundry services. I mentioned what I had seen at the VIP and was told that for them it is a guaranteed service and for "us" it is not. I dont undertand why they offer a towel service, ask for a deposit and then dont have any available. That was a few hours wasted on two of the days i stayed there just going up and down standing in queue enquiring about towels when I was supposed to be relaxing. The next day i got to the room and the aircon was leaking, there was water all over the floor and the sofa. I went again to reception and a technician was sent up, they cleaned up and took the sofa away which was never replaced, I was told there were none avilable. Thankfully i did not have any electronics or clothes on the sofa as it would all have got ruined. That was another hour wasted getting that sorted. For the money I paid for a Junior Suite I expected total relaxation not spending half my time there stressing about these issues. I would have expected at least a complementary bottle of wine or something of that sort as an apology for the inconveniences caused. There was no coffee/tea/kettle in the room and the cafeteria closes at 12pm which means you cannot have a hot drink for 8 hours until breakfast. I have been to other all inclusive hotels and they have the coffee stations outisde the bar available to everyone at all times or coffee/tea avilabale in the room. My partner popped down in the morning to the closest restaurant to grab a coffee to bring to the room and he was told he couldnt, he had to go to the one allocated to us which was quite a walk away. The breakfast and lunch was not great. Limited choice of food and you are restricted to the restaurant allocated to you for lunch. The gazpacho was awful, the swordfish chewy and dry, the potatos were half raw. Not enough healthy options at breakfast such as granola, yogurt variety, fruit smoothies etc. Dinner was an improvement though, the prawns were amazing and so was the tuna at El Estero. I have to add that my son was treated a bit rudely at the pool bar, he doesnt speak spanish but makes an effort to do so when we go to Spain even though he is shy about it. He asked for a drink at the bar, his soft spoken manner must have ticked off the bartender as he very rudely made a snide comment saying "anda hijo, con un poco mas de energia" "come on boy, you could use a bit more energy". I was there right beside my son but chose to remain silent as after all the other incidents this was just the cherry on top. All in all I had higher expectations for the money we paid.

Positive: close to a great beach, large rooms. Negative: Reception is a mess, room doors are always failing, beds are not stable, restaurant queues everywhere (restaurant, reception, bar, etc). BTW, there are three possible Reception, so if it is your first time, please ask where it is your building, because this hotel is large and if you fail, then you will lose at least 30 minutes of your time.

Come on. An over priced and monster of a hotel that leaves a carbon footprint larger than a Tyrannosaurus rex - plastic usage that is entirely unnecessary and out of synch with our current world climate crisis today. Pull your socks up and sort out your house.
