The Hotel Barcelo Isla Canela not only boasts a trio of pools and beach nearby, it's being given a full refurbishment for summer 2016.
This place styles itself as an Andalucian village, with low-level whitewashed buildings, terracotta roofs and courtyards. Lots of the hotel is being refreshed for summer 2016, including the bar, indoor pool, snack bar, buffet restaurant, lobby and rooms.
The hotel is in a peaceful spot, about a 10-minute bus ride from the fishing village of Ayamonte. If you’re staying put, there are two pools, a hotel-run kids’ club, plus rifle and archery ranges to think about.

Very good time!
I have spent lovely one week. The hotel is very good. I could only complain about small bathroom which really is the part of the room. Food was brilliant as well as staff. No complains. easy access to the beach and golf courses.More
Average Hotel, Amazing Location
the hotel itself is just ok, but with the low price we paid for the week we expected that. rooms are small & pretty dark and have single beds pushed together (?! hate this), although claim to have been recently refurbished so modern & not tatty at least. pool area is nice enough but quite small, food was really repetitive, entertainment was average at best but we really don't like hotel entertainment in general! now to the good bit: the beach is absolutely stunning. this is what sold the booking for me in the first place. it is huge, colossal when the tide is out, and although it can be super busy during the day in the evening or early morning it is just heaven. we witnessed nearly every sunset and sunrise of our stay because I was completely in love with how gorgeous it was. all we were looking for was a quiet, cheap week away to sleep, swim & sunbathe in between other trips & this fit the bill just fine.More
best hotel ever,
fabulous hotel can't find one bad thing about it. we were there 6th to 13th October. unfotunately I was rushed to hospital in Huelva.my niece was left at Barcelo. I cannot thank them enough for how she was treated. all the staff were fantastic. I am now back home and checking for May 2017 best hotel I have ever stayed at. Brenda Swingwood.More
A peaceful autumn break
A family break on an all inclusive package. Hotel was spotless, staff were friendly and always willing to help. Good variety of foods at all meals and was always well presented. Hotel is literally situated across the road from a large beach but aside from this there is not much else in the surrounding area. More
We've stayed in a number of Barcelo Hotels over the years and they have always been either trying hard to be good or, excellent. This one falls into the 'excellent' category. Every single staff member I had an interaction with was engaging, positive and smart. The pool man, domestics, reception and restaurant staff are permanently pleased to help. The restaurant is really very good, it is buffet service which suits us as we're vegetarian and there was always a great choice, even for us. Rooms: recently refurbed to a good standard, cleaned daily and well. The beds are huge and very comfortable. Pool(s): large but cool at the end of October, Sunbeds and parasols are all good quality items and there are plenty for everyone. Resort: Quiet but it has great potential, water shallow, the beach is truly vast, empty and made of delightfully soft sand. (take your power kite and board it is made for it). Transport: one bus doing a circular hourly, Ayamonte is worth the ride for the pavement cafes. Would we go again? Well, when we next want a week lounging in the sun it certainly will not be struck off the list.More
