Very Good 8.4 From 101 reviews

Barceló Costa Ballena Golf & Spa
Great hotel with brilliant facilities.
We stayed here for 3 nights half board as a family 'get-away'. The hotel was great, well looked after and the service was fantastic. The HB food was a very high standard for 'buffet' fare whilst the on site entertainment for the children (we didn't get a chance to try the adult entertainment) was great with staff who clearly understood what it takes to look after a variety of age groups and confidence levels. We are already looking at when we might go back here!

Great but rooms that are open to the environment are terrible in the evening with bugs and have to remove all the bugs before you open the door.but great hotel and most comfortable beds ever and buffet breakfast

Perfect place for golf lovers! 5min walk from the beach. Amazing buffet and staff is really nice especially Pedro at the front desk! Room was nice with a beautiful sea view. Disaponted by description as no mention spa is at extra cost.

Perfect for golf enthusiasts and golf widows.
Costa Valleys beach is amazing, especially at sunset. Great base to explore south eastern Spain. If staying outside the peak season the outdoor pools are not maintained so are unavailable. No tea/coffee facilities as standard. TV reception was really bad
