Barcelo Isla Canela Hotel

At the Hotel Barcelo Isla Canela, relaxation is firmly on the menu. The hotel is situated in a quiet spot overlooking Canela Beach. However, should you want to be in the heart of the action on the mainland, Ayamonte is only six kilometres away, and a local bus can take you from directly outside the hotel. The hotel is styled like an Andalusian village with low-level buildings, terracotta roofs and courtyards. The outdoor pool is surrounded by flowering gardens and terraces with sun loungers. In the evening, the outdoor and indoor bars host live music and entertainment options from singers to guitarists and flamenco dancers.

Isla Canela is the perfect spot if you’re looking for a relaxing retreat. A seven kilometre beach stretches right the way to the Portuguese coast.

Here you’ll find Marismas de Isla Cristina, a national park that hosts rare birds and can be explored on horseback.
