                  I loved the Spa!!

                  The hotel was very seperated there are 4 building and they put us in builing 4.

                  The Costa Ballena is, for the connoisseurs, like an Andalous Knokke le Zoute ;-) a huge resort, mixed of second residences, hotels, golfs and spas + the beach, familial and acceptably clean. The Barcelo Costa Ballena Hotel was a pleasant surprise. The rooms of the Barcelo are perfectly clean, climatisation without reproach (very important when you have 40°c), the meals are excellent and the staff very nice. Two large swimming pools, a spa (20 euros per day, per person, but ask the promotion: same price for two). Activities for the children (this is a place to go with children, but even without, if you don't detest their noise! Ask a room in the Bloc n°4, which is not in front of the swimming pools). My spouse and me we recommand this hotel!

                  Beware the desk! Some of them are competent and serviceable, but there is a certain alba and her manager which are utterly incompetent. They forgot to ask our credit card at our arrival, never asked for it during the week, then canceled our access to the room the last day; we went to the desk, they requested our credit card before giving us access to our room - in which laid, of course, the credit card in question. I had literally to shout on the rude male clerk at the reception desk who barely spoke any other language than Spanish and who obviously lacked proper training in guest relations. Given the quality of the rest, this was an entertaining detail!

                  Good breakfast,excellent pools,good rooms,friendly staff.

                  The furniture in the rooms was very damaged and old looking, didn´t have any entertainment, the spa was very small and the staff were not that nice
