We planned to expect the best and we were not disappointed. You are surrounded by beautiful buildings, you walk out onto a promenade which borders a very large beach of golden sand. You return to the village ambiance the hotel provides and your wishes are catered for by a friendly, efficient and enthusiastic staff.

Great modern hotel in good location only downside was having to queue to enter restaurant every night no matter what time you dined I know that many people complained about this. Food was good although somewhat repetitive. Plenty of sunbeds and umbrellas around the very nice pool area. Reception staff were excellent

Friendly hotel great pool and close to the sea. Plenty of choice food wise although had we stayed two weeks it may have meant venturing out more along the coastal road. Would definitely go again in the future.

It is situated right on an extensive beach of fine, golden sand within the tourist complex of Isla Canela, in the historic town of Ayamonte, Huelva, just a few minutes from the exotic Portuguese Algarve. In addition, it is located 45 minutes from the international airport in Portugal and an hour and a half from Seville Airport. The new rooms stand out for their brightness, comfort and facilities such as SAT-TV, air conditioning and heating, a safe deposit box and minibar. Many rooms have wonderful sea views, where you can enjoy the breeze and colours of the Costa de la Luz (Coast of Light). The hotel offers free Wi-Fi both in the rooms as well as throughout the hotel and facilities. The hotel offers its guests some outstanding cuisine, which has been recognised by our customers and awarded as some of the best in the chain, in terms of satisfaction and guest care. In addition to the breathtaking views, the hotel features stunning gardens, a fantastic swimming pool area and exciting sports and leisure programmes designed by our hotel team each week.
