The Hotel Barcelo Isla Canela not only boasts a trio of pools and beach nearby, it's being given a makeover 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 and lobby.
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.

DON'T pay extra for the drinks package. You pay for a wrist band which does not entitle you to anything. The website states drinks, but you get a small jar of very poor wine (only with your evening meal) or a soft drink and that is it! You can order a good bottle of wine from the menu for less! No Tea/Coffee is served in the dining room after the evening meal therefore you have to go into the bar to finish your meal and pay! It is not included in the package.More
Nice family hotel
I spent a week there in the summer of 2014 and enjoyed it. The hotel is clean and the staff very friendly. Would love it if the night entertainment took plae outside, as we were there in July and everything was done indoors. The beach is wonderful and walking distance from the hotel. the only thing I missed was having more to do in the surroundingsMore

Barcelo Isla Canela
Great hotel for relaxing break. Typical Spanish style but kept clean and all staff (reception, bar and restaurant friendly and helpful). Good choice of food and stayed all inclusive and all drinks included. Free pool towels and Wi-Fi, safe was 3 euros per day. Resort slightly disappointing as not many shops at end with this hotel and an hours walk to the other end where few more. However, beach more than made up for it with being more or less empty except at weekends when Spanish made full use of this. Would go back again for relaxing break.More
Annual Visit to the Barcelo Isla Canela
This is the 5th time we have stayed at the Isla Canela. It's clean,tidy,relaxing,quiet,peaceful etc etc. In two week s never had to hunt around the restaurant for food. Busy but not mobbed Hourly bus to Ayamonte ,4 miles away.. No bus between 2 and 5 Huge beach at least 5 miles long Plenty of quiet bars in AYamonte. Recommend the Passage in Plaza Laguna Ferry to Portugal on the Hour 1.85 single to Vila Real. Mosquitos. Not a problem. Try Vick at night time on arms Just finished booking it for next May Only problem was trying to get through Passport Control at Faro . Got through Security at 9.00. Flight at 10.15. Only 2 guys checking passports.. Automatic ones not working. Took an hour to reach Control .Thanks to Airport staff hauling out of the queque those who flight was due we would still be in Faro. Advice..Get through Security. No Tea/Coffee . Visit Loo and join the Q. Flew with Europe Airpost from Glasgow...Very Gallic. Thomson/TuiMore

I have just returned from a week's vacation at this wonderful hotel. This is the second time I have visited with my wife but this time we visited with 11 other family members including our 4 grown sons and 2 grandchildren. Lovely rooms, great location, immaculate grounds and great staff. I really love the location right on the incredible beach. Stunning. The hotel is very friendly and professionally run. LOVE IT! Like Arnie, I'll be back...More
