This beachside hotel comes with a duo of pools and restaurants, and it’s big on activities, too.
There are 2 lagoon pools and 2 restaurants – 1 does buffets, the other is a speciality grill. You’ve also got an A to Z of activities, while in the evening there’s entertainment in the theatre.
Location-wise, this hotel hits the right spot. It’s right on a sandy beach, and it’s just a few minutes’ walk from shops and bars in the centre of Costa Caleta.

Very friendly hotel. Excellent facilities good food. Well situated probably the nicest resort on the island. Ideal for couples but not adult only however plenty of space and opportunities for quiet time, caters well for families too. More
The hotel neither good not bad, however the evening entertaining was most definitely bad! Having booked an all inclusive package, we expected everything to be included however this was not the case. Please be aware of paying for clean towels, safety deposit box, extra tea and coffee in the room, quite a few of the drinks - in fact anything that could be charged for was. Not impressed overall and would not go back.More
Just back from the barcelo thalasso spa. I've stayed here a few times before in the past but unfortunately on this visit Was very disappointed.the hotel even though it's supposed to be a 4* is old and in need of a refurbishment.we booked a superior room but when we checked in was given a small unpleasant older style room .went back to reception to complain only to be advised that all the rooms were the same.after informing the man behind reception that this was not my first visit and I've stayed here a number of times before.was given a other room which was a superior room.. I can't comment on the staff as did not really interact with anyone apart from a hello at the dining room entrance.. Food basic and by day 3 was fed up with the same buffet food on a number of nights there was not enough desserts for the whole of service so didn't have any... Unfortunately I will not be returning to this hotel again..it's more like a 2* hotel Very disappointed and I don't recommend this hotel if your looking for 4* luxuryMore
We stayed here last week for a week all inclusive. The room was spacious and the beds are lovely and very, very comfortable. That's a major factor for me as I have back problems. I liked the variety of pillows that the superior room has as well as dressing gowns, slippers, tea/coffee making facilities and beach towels. We were in block 3, 3rd floor with a very slight sea view, overlooking one of the pools and it was quiet most of the time. The rooms are immaculately clean, as is all the hotel. The cleaners work very hard. There were always lots of sun beds, even with people reserving some with towels. The pools are fabulous. One of them is heated and the water is saline (children may prefer to have goggles) but that means we didn't stink of chlorine and the water is more buoyant. Both pools are large and the photos on Trip Advisor are accurate. There were plenty of drinks available on the all inclusive option and bottles of water to drink or to take back to the room. We found all staff helpful and friendly. We had an issue that we went to reception with and they were very efficient at sorting it out very satisfactorily. The room has a little fridge, which is handy. We had a TV on the wall and found channels 19, 24, 25, 26 and 27 were English speaking channels and included the BBC and ITV. The shower was good and the bath is easy to step in and out of. I have to admit to getting lost a couple of times (I have a dreadful sense of direction) and signs outside level 1 lifts pointing to reception would have been appreciated! I found the easiest way to get around between areas was to go cut across the pool areas. If the hotel is ever given a major refurbishment in later years, a lift from the pool area to the lobby should be considered. The hotel is very disabled friendly and also very suitable for children, particularly toddlers and babies. There is a baby/toddler pool and a mini and maxi 'club'. There were several activities such as ping pong and aqua gym for adults and there seemed to be a lot of activities for children. The entertainment team worked well as a team. In previous hotels we have stayed in there is a dedicated area for card playing - which we really enjoy - but there wasn't anywhere in the actual hotel for that. We went through to the Aloe Bar and played there, but that closes at 11pm. The guests were mainly British and Italian, with some German and some Spanish. It was a pretty laid back atmosphere. So, a lot of positives, but there were 3 areas that are not so positive. The entertainment staff work very hard, but the shows they put on were very amateurish. The hotel could do with investing some time and money in some decent sets for the stage and some decent props and costumes. One night we sat in the 5th row from the stage and the noise level from the right hand speakers was way too high - my right ear actually went deaf and 'ringing' for a while afterwards, as if I had been at a disco. The speaker noise level of the violinists/Spanish dancing act was unbearable and we left the theatre area because of it. I pity the waiting staff being repeatedly exposed to that noise. I would advise sitting as far back as you can. The Grease night was quite good, but we left half way through the other 'in house' shows. The 'tumbler' show that was an outside act was very good and worth watching. With regard to the food, breakfast was very good, excellent variety. However, lunch and evening meal became very 'samey'. Ok for a week, but I wouldn't like 2 weeks of it all inclusive. Plenty of salad items, wonderful sweets and cakes, good variety of breads/rolls, excellent range of fruit,nuts, yoghurts and cheese, but some of the main meal items were only luke warm and not the tastiest. The chips were invariably just warm or cold and seemed to just be frozen chips that were used. There were a couple of nights when there were 'proper' chips and they were much nicer. Perhaps the hotel should consider better ways to keep some of the food hot, such as a better heat lamp facility, or to have more regular deep frying of smaller quantities of chips, croquettes etc or have covered bowls to retain some heat for dishes. Some of the main meals were ok, there was nearly always a roast (which was in a stew the following day!) but liver and onions, goat and lots of bland fish dishes didn't entice me - perhaps for other people that is good food for them. There was a different pasta dish every day, the same pizzas every dayand the best area is at the back with some fresh cooking of meat and fresh cooked paella was available a couple of days. Overall the food was ok and the salad choice could not be faulted. But I have had better re the main meal selection and the heat of some of the food definitely needs to improve. The beach is man made and is of a very coarse sand, with fine rocks and shell in it - uncomfortable to walk on,not really suitable for making sandcastles except right at the water's edge where it is a little bit softer and I certainly wouldn't want to sit on it. There are wooden decked areas along the beach where you can hire a sunbed to sunbathe. We went into the sea, but I think we went into the sea when the tide was in, so it shelved quite quickly and I was out of my depth in a few strides - there was a significant cross current, possibly caused by the breeze that is a regular feature on this island. The sand in the sea was the same coarse sand which I really didn't like, so we only went to the beach once. Possibly when the tide is 'out' it is ok for paddling, I don't know. Certainly when the tide is in, It would be dangerous to allow a child to go on a lilo unsupervised or even to swim without very close supervision -, they would (in my opinion) be out of their depth very quickly and get caught in the cross current, which I struggled to swim against. To finish on some positives - we went on a catamaran sail (Catalanza - via Tiu) across nearly to Lanazarote and we really enjoyed it and went swimming and snorkling off the boat.. The crew were great fun, especially Theresa. Worth the money - we paid extra to be on an adult only sail, but apparently the morning sail had been with children and had been great fun. Lunch was provided. Another day we also went for a walk along the sea front to the harbour, which is a nice walk and there are some really cute ground squirrels that you might spot on the rocky beach along there. Overall we certainly enjoyed our week and spent a good chunk of it by the lovely pool, lapping up the sun, reading and enjoying our all inclusive drinks. If that is what you are mainly looking for then it is ideal.More
Lovely restfull stay
Hotel was clean and friendly. Hotel room was a normal standard room but had all the facilities that we needed. Tea and coffee, fridge and toiletries. Bed was really comfy and the size of the room was ample for a couple. Food was buffet style and no gentleman was let in without long trousers in the evening and an armed T shirt had to be worn at lunch time. There was an a la carte restaurant which opened a couple of days a week but this incurred an additional charge. Drinks in the restaurant were expensive, a bottle of water costing 2 Euros and 2 wine glasses of coke over 5 Euros. Lots of sun beds although there are a lot without umbrellas and they tend to be quite close together. We tendecd to go to the beach although they do charge 10.50Euros per day and there are no toilets there.Entertainment was not as good as I was expecting but if you have children this could be ideal.This hotel is very well placed with a small sopping centre next door. It is on the beach. There is a well lit prommenade which is ideal for walking to either the larger shopping centre or the harbour in the enening. There is a small local market twicw a week which you can walk yo in around 10 minutes. All in all this is a good hotel with lots of varied activities for those that want to take part.More
