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 hotel for a great summer holidays, with family, couples or friends. The location is very good and have a grate beach. Only have a little problem the see is very far for the sand. But the rest itÂ´s wonderful.More
Beautiful Grounds and peaceful Location
We have just returned from a 10 day holiday here. Loved the hotel and grounds and the fact that we were just across the road from a gorgeous sandy beach. The food was excellent and very well presented.
The only negative was that some of the waiters/waitresses didn't understand English when we were ordering food and drink. I thought this would be a prerequisite of the job. Having said that, we had a laugh about it and had a very enjoyable holiday.
The children seemed to have a lovely time with singing and dancing for them each evening. I couldn't get wifi in the bedroom and had to sit in the lounge for that.
I would recommend taking the local bus to Ayamonte, where there is a harbour and lots of shops and cafes. You can also catch the ferry across to Portugal which only takes a few minutes. Would recommend this hotel for people who like a peaceful location.More

Lovely hotel in fabulous location
We have just returned from a relaxed holiday at this lovely hotel. Everywhere was exceptionally clean and tidy, the new decoration of the hotel is very tasteful. The food in the restaurant is very good always hot and lots of choice, at least 3 types of meat and fish every night with a good selection of vegetables, rice, potatoes and lots of fresh salad to choose from. Puddings to die for, including a chocolate fountain one evening. The pool area was lovely plenty of sunbeds and umbrellas and hardly any towels put out reserving. There is the main pool area with soft music playing and the animation team playing games or doing zumba at certain times or a quiet area if you prefer. The evening entertainment was very good some of the best we have seen for several years in different hotels. The beach is just across the road and what a lovely beach it is miles and miles of soft sand. The tide does go out a long way, but it leaves behind some lovely sand banks and warm pools of water for walking around. Lots of pretty shells are washed up too. 10 euros for 2 beds and an umbrella so very cheap for the day and near enough to walk to the hotel to make use of the all inclusive! The bus to Ayamonte is very easy to use and runs hourly except during 2 and 5 when they have their siesta but definitely worth a visit. I would recommend this hotel and would return tomorrow if I could.More
