Description
The Barcelo Isla Canela**** hotel has just been refurbished in 2016 in the style of a traditional Andalusian village. It is situated right on an extensive beach of fine, golden sand within the More 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 programs designed by our hotel team each week. Less

I see from a previous question and answer that there is a bus stop near the hotel. We are considering staying at the hotel in November. Do buses operate in November to Ayamonte and Huelva?
Yes I would think so. It’s a very Spanish place with locals also getting the bus to work. The timetable makes no mention of the service stopping in the winter.

hi All Does the hotel play music around the pool all day Do you have to get up at 6am to guarantee a sun bed and brolly Would you say it is suitable for an active 13 year old Granddaughter Is the restaurant comfortable at all times and not elbow to elbow Thank you
Dear Dave, We play environmental music in one part of the pool, but not all around the pool. Don´t worry, you will have enough space to relax without music. You don´t have to get up at 6am to guarantee a sun bed, there are enough and we implement a policy which states that none of the sunbeds can be reserved for more than 1 hour (during high occupancy periods). We have entertainment activities for all ages, from babies to junior. You won´t have any trouble in the restaurant to find your perfect table ;). Kind regards,

Hi, looking at hotel Barcelo Isla Canela, I’ve read that there isn’t too much around this hotel and there are “market type shops” nearby. Just wanted to know if there are many shops to walk to to have a wonder around. Don’t like busy places but need somewhere to walk to.
You can walk and enjoy it, but you will be lucky to find shops, old school quiet resort. Good beach bars/restaurants but that’s it. Hotel hires bikes out and it’s easy to see the whole sea front which is a few miles long. It’s a relaxing place, we enjoyed as it’s a change from hectic resorts.

"For a very quiet room choose one in area A"
"pool view high floor"
"Our room had a balcony overlooking Barcy children's play area. However, out of season the area is not used and, therefore, is quiet."
"Go to the supermarket at the front of the hotel a small walk to get good prices"
"Quiet rooms away from the pools"
