The Hotel Barcelo has the perfect spot. It's ten minutes from the airport and right on the beach, in the middle of a sandy bay. At one end of the curl is a marina, with a clutch of restaurants and bars on the promenade. The hotel itself is home to two restaurants and bars of its own, including a bar dishing out hotdogs next to two big lagoon pools. There's a state-of-the-art spa that does quirky treatments like chocotherapy, and as a guest here you'll get a good discount.

Easter Holiday 2014
Fantastic family holiday the staff were extremely helpful and throughout our stay were very friendly and good fun. I salute all of the staff from the crew who made our rooms so nice to return to, the waiters in the pool bar and buffet restaurant the chefs who prepared and cooked the deliscious selection of choice foods the animacion team who entertained and looked after the children whilst we spent a relaxing couple of hours at the luxurious Thallasso Spa 5 minutes walk from the kids club then we come to the evening entertainment which was superb every evening featuring the entertainment crew who look after the children during the day and also run the health clubs such as water aerobics, water polo, yoga fitness classes running around the pools making people laugh oh and serving yummy Sangria and then went on to perform the incredible shows in the evening. we were there for two weeks and enjoyed every moment , the staff work incredibly hard to make our holiday special, we are very much looking forward to returning next year from a very happy family in West SussexMore

We stayed here 12th till 19th April. First visit to a Barcelo, we've stayed in Riu's, Princess's etc in the Canaries many times and it was comparable to them i.e. we got what we paid for, £2'900 for a family of four, all inclusive at a 4 star hotel during the school holidays. Food and drink were plentiful and of a very good quality, kids are fussy eaters but always found something they liked, some of the grilled fish on offer was as good as you'll find anywhere. Waiters and Waitresses as friendly as you are! Rooms where comfortable and spotlessly clean (interconnecting would be nice). Stayed in rooms 1305 and 1306, 3rd floor in block 1. Animation team were very enthusiastic if your up for that! Right on the beach or plenty of space around the pools if you got up early enough, one pool quite cool and one very warm. Some other reviewers seem to have a problem with paying for wifi/safe/towels as opposed to other hotels, my view is; you pay any way up, compare it to a Riu where these are 'free' and the price is comparable, just dressed up in a different way! Outside of the hotel is quite a nice resort, you can go and feed the wild Chipmunks, which is funny the first few times, me and junior went on the 4 hour Dune Buggy Safari up in the North of the Island ( you get picked up at the hotel at 9.00am and dropped back off at 6.00pm ) €100 all in, What a Blast!! The Thomsom reps at the hotel are very helpful with any requirements and have to say we had no problem with the check in and check out as some others seem to have had. Wall to wall sunshine helped the atmosphere but that's pot luck anywhere these days. In summary; value for money, we've stayed in better but paid for the privilege and cut costs on others only to regret it. I think this particular hotel gets it spot on. Well done Barcelo, we'll use your hotels again ;O)More

ABout to visit again
We are about to visit this complex again in July and we were there last May and loved everything about it so really looking forward to it. Reading the reviews made this month it seems that some people think All inclusive literally means you get everything handed to you on a plate... wake up and get a life!!! You get a great choice of food and drinks all day every day and the staff will be polite to you if you are to them ( isnt that the same in this country). Why do you need WIFI you are there on holiday just relax instead catching up on the latest eastenders and corrie headlines. The evening shows were brilliant last year and sounds they are the same this year so that will keep the kids happy. It seems certian people went at peak times and were expecting everything to be laid back and easy going but why go to a top rated hotel that caters for everyone and not expect a couple of minor problems ata very very busy time. I take on board the negatives but they not putting me off at all and looking forward to the good times once again even if the in laws are tagging alongMore

Kids had a fab time and we got to relax.
Booked directly with the hotel. We booked the AI package. The service, staff and quality of rooms were amazing. Food quality has dropped slightly but still very good. Kids clubs and entertainments team were amazing and it was a delight to be able to relax knowing that the kids weren't bored. The evening shows were the best weve seen in the canaries. So Thankyou for a wonderful break and having Smirnoff on AI package. . More

Yet another fantastic stay at this hotel. This is my 4th visit in the past two years and My family love it here. we travel in a large family group with grandparents, parents and children between the ages of 2 and 6. We recently travelled between the 9th and the 16th April during peak Easter holidays and although the hotel was clearly full we didn't struggle to find space for lunch, evening meal or seats for watching the shows. Shows The evening shows are fantastic, the best I have ever seen for hotel entertainment and are one of the main reasons we return twice a year. The children love the shows, especially the lion king performance, and the variety of activities throughout the day keep them entertained until bedtime. kid's club The animation team do a fabulous job with the children's daytime entertainment and clearly enjoy working with children. The do only take children from 4 years but with adult supervision are happy to include younger children in their activities. this year a new mini/maxi club area has been build and the facilities are excellent. The only disappointment is that the park and children's play equipment is within the pirate section which is locked at certain points throughout the day. It is only actually open for four hours a day, this meant that we had to go into the town centre or down to the beach for a park to entertain the children until10:30 and then over the lunch period and in the early evening. I hope the hotel intend on re building a park area outside the mini club so that children can be entertained throughout the day even when the mini/maxi club are closed. rooms Rooms are lovely and not really any need to upgrade although upgraded rooms are nice and light and it is helpful to have a kettle with tea and coffee. you also get free admission to the spa if upgraded but unfortunately you can only drink water in the spa area so not even soft drinks available. (child free tho) we had a room in the third block and although it is further to walk, they are quieter and get lots of sun in the early evening. great sea and pool views too. Overall an excellent hotel, great food, lovely staff, superb entertainment and a very pleasant holiday for all ages.More
