“excellent location, apartment was not bad, very poor service though”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2011

The location is great and the swimming pool is a bonus. There is also underground parking which is fantastic for those travelling by car. You can literally cross the road to get to the chill-out bars with Sheesha pipes and Mint teas... or down some steps to the beach. The rooms were relatively small and simple although they did lead up to a roof terrace which was very very impressive - the 360 views were excellent. Unfortunately the hotel manager was very rude, obnoxious and pedantic and we were on a well deserved holiday. We had a friend who decided to visit for the day but was not let into our room, or the hotel complex for that matter. It was only after letting him know that we were lawyers and we would not hesitate to file a complaint againt him (una denuncia) that he backed off... We will only stay there again as a last resort!

Room Tip: pick one with a roof terrace

Canos de Meca in April is very quiet and most of the apartments were empty which is great if you want some peace and quiet. Location right in front of the beach with pine forest covering the hillside behind. Apartments are quite basic but have everything you need. Only negative comment I could make is that the bed was uncomfortable. Very good value, pleasant staff, excellent location but you would need a car. Not much open either this time of year but we were happy to prepare our own meals and eat on the terrace each evening.

Just spent 4 days at these apartments in Canos de Meca-don't tell anyone about this resort,it has been my secret for the past 16 years! These apartments are simple but are clean and are equipped with everything you need and the reception staff are very helpful.

We spent a whole week in the apartments in Canos de Meca. The position was really perfect, near to the sea and near to go to trainings maps and to Barbate. The apartments were great and the living there was perfect. From the reception to the director, Paco, where all really kind. The warm and sunny days and the wonderful surrounding areas completed a such a special week.

I found the apartments to be sufficient although a little draughty. Staff are very friendly and patient. There was quite along walk from the underground car park to our apartment and steps were unavoidable, elevators only serve certain levels. Dining table also seemed a little small but fine for three people. This place is located right beside Las Brenas National Park, with pine trees and sand dunes and plenty recreational areas. Also nearby is Trafalgar Cape lighthouse. There is wireless internet but it only works in about half the apartments - I had to leave the door open to get a signal.

This large, modern apartment complex is situated less than 100 metres from the main town beach of Canos De Meca. It delivers everything you would want for a self catering break in this lively Spanish resort - ample secure underground parking & well furnished & equipped apartments; including a very welcome washing machine. It makes a great base in the resort with the beach, bars & restaurants easily at hand. Unfortunately it is a little soulless & the modern concrete & tiled floor construction means that it can be noisy. Our party arrived on a monday & had 3 nites of undisturbed sleep, however Canos is the venue of choice for large groups of youngsters who come to PARTY at the weekend. Canos is very much a Spanish resort so don't expect to eat out before 10pm & be prepared for the partying to start after midnite & to continue until the early hours. Travelling with teenagers this can be a major advantage but only if they have truly immersed themselves in the timekeeping of their Spanish counterparts...On the Thursday nite a party of youngsters moved into the apartment upstairs & having partied on the beach until 3am thought it would be fun to continue until 5.30am in their apartment - this is when you truly get a picture of the soundproofing qualities of concrete block construction!! Unfortunately there are no phones in the apartments to ring the 24 hour reception staff so you are left to deal with rowdy revellers on your own. A word with the management the following day persuaded the other guests to "keep it down" until 4am & the following 2 nites were spent in much the same fashion with other large groups in the complex adding to the din! - checking out on Monday morning after approximately 10 hours sleep in the last 4 nites was a bad tempered affair. Many tourist destinations in the Uk have banned all male/female groups & I would suggest the management may want to consider this or at least warn families of the possibility of the problem at weekends in the high season. Monday to Thursday the resort is fantastic, predominantly populated with Spanish families with very few Brits discovering this part of the Spanish coast. Eating out all budgets are catered for from burgers to delicious tapas, to fine dining - check out the the bar at Hotel Madreselva, a quiet oasis with lovely staff & great tapas. There is also an excellent music scene here with many bars featuring live music. Adrenalin junkies can get their fix of fast & furious kite surfing at the lighthouse end of the beach where you will also find the "hippy/alternative/artistic" vibe that Canos is renowned for. Check out Casas Karen at this end of town for a truly eco stay. Come the weekend come the hordes & unfortunately the Spanish authorities don't seem to be able to keep on top of the street cleaning that sadly becomes a priority. There was a noticeable build up of bottles & cans overflowing from the dumpsters & bins & very sadly the main steps down to the beach become a public urinal - when teenagers notice the pong you know theres a problem!! This was my second visit to Canos & whilst I love the place & it's laid back vibe, the authorities & hotel management really need to get a handle on the weekend issues.
