This beachfront hotel has been awarded Spain’s highest award for quality.
This huge hotel is just a stone’s throw from a sandy beach. And it’s also a 10-minute walk to Caleta de Fuste’s pint-sized harbour – there are a handful of bars and restaurants right on the water.
The hotel holds the Q award for quality. Thanks to the outdoor lagoon pools and al fresco grill restaurant, it’s easy to see why. There’s another buffet restaurant, as well as nightly live shows.

Mostly good, some not so good
Recently returned from our first visit to this hotel. Firstly, dont pay extra for the fast speed wifi as we did. We paid 25 euros and it was hopeless. Best place for wifi seemed to be reception, we had none in our room in block 3. The food was ok but not the best we have had in four star all inclusive and if you like overdone fried eggs and either literally burnt or next to uncooked bacon you will like it here! We thought breakfast was the worst meal although the Lavazza coffee machine was good. Dinner was hit and miss with all the roast meats except the turkey very tough but there was thankfully always plenty of fish which we ate at most meals. You can sit anywhere you choose in the vast dining area but its best to go early or late to avoid the very crowded mealtimes. We had a superior room with free use of the spa which was well worth it and we made good use of it. We enjoyed the mini golf, not to be confused with novelty golf, and the choice of easy or hard 18 holes was very well designed. The rooms are spacious but glad i took my own hair dryer as the one supplied is the sort where you have to continually keep the heat control pressed down, not good if you have arthritic fingers. Hotel is well placed with nice walks out of the back gate and very close at the front to bars, shops and supermarket and a 24 health centre opposite. Evening entertainment so so with most things just mimed to . There is a shortage of seats in the bar area which meant having to sit in the reception area to relax in the evening. Entertainment didnt start until 9.45. Any sports fans will be disappointed as there are no big screen or Sky sports televisions for big events but these can be seen in the sports bars outside the hotel. All inclusive guests get free drinks until 11 pm and after that have to pay half price. It is a short transfer from the airport and well organised check in but dont expect the staff to change your room if you dont like the one allocated. All in all the hotel was pretty much what we had expected and fair value for money but we wouldnt return as we like to try new places. Staff very good.More

Lovely Relaxing Holiday
This was our first stay at both the Hotel & Resort and we had a fantastic stay , The Hotel was spotless ,the Room we had was both spacious & very comfortable and all the staff were exceptionally friendly. The food was of a very high quality, with a wide range of choice, The location is within minutes of shops , bars, restaurants and the beach. The resort is also suitable for the less mobile, with easy access and a very flat terrain. An excellent holiday all roundMore

We've just returned from eight days at the Barcelo after hearing many great reviews, and we certainly weren't disappointed. We booked directly with the hotel via their website and found this to work out cheaper than by using a traditional holiday company package - especially as the hotel is only 15â¬ away from the airport in a taxi. The food and service were excellent every day, without fail. We booked all-inclusive and found the drinks selection to be more than adequate (there is a charge for premium spirits, although at a reduced rate). Food is plentiful and varied - a breakfast buffet, snack bar or restaurant for lunch, then buffet for dinner. Take note of the dress code for lunch and dinner though. I'm told they are not as strict as they have been, although gents still have to wear long trousers (that includes jeans) for dinner. If you are staying, definitely look into the a la carte meal option in the Aloe Bar on Friday nights - 5 courses of excellent food. The animation team worked really hard to involve everyone in their daily activities, and put on a great show each night in the hotel theatre bar. The WiFi was a bit hit and miss, especially at peak times, but that didn't bother us too much whilst we were there. All in all, a fabulous hotel and look forward to returning.More

This hotel really is worth a visit. Good food, very clean and well maintained. Plenty of beds around the pool. Helpful staff and very comfy beds in the rooms. It's right on the beach and in a central area for bars and restaurants. Would visit again. The Spa had reasonable facilities but do charge â¬20 to spend the day there. Had a treatment which was lovely and relaxing. Only down side is the gym is poorly air conditioned and it's glass so gets a little too hot for me. More
Stayed in a superior pool facing room. Beds were incredibly comfortable and hotel itself was so peaceful. Fantastic food options,very good waiting staff and never had a problem getting a table. The spa was a lovely option that goes complimentary with superior rooms and if you feel like getting away from the hotel a very nice extra. The pool beds were always plentiful and never had any problem getting a bed. Everything just works here, it's a great little break for some rest.really enjoyed it and will definatly be back !More
