Stunning location and hotel but the staff service for the room and main restaurant could and should be better and quicker . All staff are friendly and approachable and those on reception were very good and helpful . Carpets on main stairs and landings are worn and scruffy .

BARCELO @ its BEST . Wonderful character hotel and beautiful secluded setting. The best holiday Hotel ever. The Pine Wood setting so close to the sea is idyllic, as is the comfort everywhere on the hotel site.

Elegant hotel with beautiful grounds and stunning beach. The staff were welcoming and helpful. It was perfect for our short trip away. We were glad we had the car though as it is a bit cut off. That's not a criticism though - fabulous place to get away to with lovely views. Extremely comfortable beds and we were upgraded to...

This hotel has always been renowned as an excellent holiday destination. It's expensive but the facilities offered justify the prices. All staff charming and helpful. Food superb, with buffets really impressive. Rooms well appointed. Altogether a very relaxing hotel in an idyllic environment. Better to book outside school holiday times to avoid uncontrolled unnecessarily noisy children - almost exclusively English!!!

We have stayed for one week at the hotel. It is one of rare places where you are actually able to switch off and enjoy, since all is being taken care of by the personnel of the hotel. The paradise-like location and the great facilities also help. Well worth its price.
