Playacanela Hotel
Ranked #6 of 6 Hotels in Isla Canela
Reviewed June 25, 2007

I booked my holiday through Airtours, looking for somewhere that had a single room on the Algarve, as I didn't want to share with my parents!! The nearest we could get was the Costa de la Luz over the border in Spain.

Hotel Playa Canela is a very impressive 4* hotel with large rooms, friendly staff and a fabulous pool area (with heated outdoor jacuzzi). The choice for breakfast & dinner was amazing, with meat & fish cooked fresh on a grill. It was only a couple of minutes walk to a beautiful beach and there is a lovely paved walk from one end of Isla Canela to the other.

Currently it is mainly the Spanish that holiday in Isla Canela, so I recommend you go armed with a few Spanish phrases. In the harbour area there are a couple of English run bars, one of which, Sugar Reef, puts on the occasional entertainment night - while we were there they had a singer called 'Bruno' who was great.

Isla Canela is well located for trips to Ayamonte, the Algarve and Seville - however there is not much in the resort yet. This is changing and there is development taking place. I recommend using one of the many places to hire bikes, or take the Ocean or River boat trip.

Hotel Playa Canela most suited for families (the entertainment staff were lovely), and anyone wanting rest and relaxation.
