Costa Ballena is a great place to relax golf,swimming,walking or just relaxing.Although the food in the hotel restaurant was good value if you wanted to go somewhere different you had to drive,no where within walking distance.

I passed through on business. It's a quick easy walk to a beautiful secluded beach. The dinner buffet was unbelievable! It was also a quick walk to a local market for some wine. The hotel staff was very nice and helpful

I have to admit I may not have taken advantage of the hotels full accomodations. I was there on a golfing trip so most of the day I spent on the course, so things like gym, spa and pool was not on my agenda so much during my stay in the hotel.

Excellent hotel, high quality staff, clean rooms, over-all enjoyable experience to stay. The spa facilities add extra bonus to the quality of the stay. The golf course is of very high quality and the exercise facilities there are one of the best in Europe.

Very clean hotel with a good restaurant and just a short walk to the beach. I stayed here for over a month from Feb to April and was completely satisfied with my stay. More food variety would be nice but probably not a problem for short stays. Highly recommend
