    “Faded decor”

    Group golf trip Mon-Fri . Good access to golf course , but the rooms were poorly designed and in need of an upgrade. No privacy in the en suite bathroom due to a glass door relatively close to the bed.

    BCOSTABALLENA, Director de Relaciones con Clientes at Barcelo Costa Ballena Golf & Spa, responded to this review
     Dear lindy e, Firstly we would like to thank you for choosing Barceló Costa Ballena Golf & Spa for a few days of golf vacations. We really appreciate the time you took to share your opinion with us because our guest´s feedback helps us to improve continuously our services and facilities as offering a perfect experience at Barceló is our main objective. Therefore we regret that we have not been able to cover your expectations completely despite our attempts and efforts are focused on achieving your maximum satisfaction. Regarding your comment on the design of bathroom, I would like to mention that our hotel counts with a few rooms of the standard category provide an independent bathroom separated by door. Further, all the spacious suites of the hotel (minimum 60 m2 each) do have two bathrooms totally equipped and seperated by a door (not of glass). Please contact us directly for your next reservation and inform us about your preferences. Certainly, just 100 meters from the hotel you will find the Costa Ballena Ocean Golf Club, one of the largest golf courses in Europe. Located in a unique scene on the seashore, it has 27 holes of competition, plus 9 holes for practices for the enjoyment of all golf lovers. It is a pleasure that this aspect was so much to your liking. Best regards. Yours sincerely, Theresa S. Guest Experience

    “Excellent place for Golfing holiday.”

    Great variety in buffet for breakfast and dinner. Beautiful rooms. Great staff. Good location. Very nice spa. Would recommend to anyone. Golf Club is only 250 m easy walk away with storage of equipment. 27 great and very playable golf fairways with minimal rough to create good flow.

    “Perfect for a short getaway, especially for people with coeliac condition”

    It is a perfect place to relax, to take a stroll on the beach or to play golf. Quality and well maintained resorts' facilities and nice bedrooms with all the essential amenities. But for me, the best is breakfast, since it offers fresh and local food and a wide range of possibilities if you suffer from celiac disease or lactose intolerance, with a lot of quality and assorted products from the best brands and it is separated from the other food to avoid cross-contamination.

    BCOSTABALLENA, Director de Relaciones con Clientes at Barcelo Costa Ballena Golf & Spa, responded to this review

We would love to have the opportunity to welcoming you back with the objective that you will fully enjoy our small, but amazing paradise again. Kind regards. Yours sincerely, Theresa S.

    “Organised golf trip”

    Good golf course very suitable for high handicappers. We were a party of 36 mostly golfers with a few non-golfers. Unfortunately most of the facilities in the area are closed off-season so there wasn't much to do if your not playing golf. However we all thought that the hotel exceeded expectations. Excellent variety of food in the buffet restaurant. The Spa has good facilities and worthy of a visit.

    BCOSTABALLENA, Director de Relaciones con Clientes at Barcelo Costa Ballena Golf & Spa, responded to this review
     Dear Mrs. S. We are very grateful for the time and effort you spent to share your opinion about our hotel Barceló Costa Ballena with us and TripAdvisor readers. It brights up our day to know that the hotels facilities and services were to your liking and that your visit was a really pleasant experience. For those who visit us looking for more cultural activities and entertainment we recommend visiting the small towns and cities in the surroundings, which can be easily reached by car in just a few minutes. We would like to mention that in the same Costa Ballena urbanization open several beach bars, shops and businesses during the summer season. Apart from that we are proud to read comments like yours that describe the result we seek and work daily to obtain them. Thank you for your visit, we hope to be your choice in a future occasion. Best regards, Theresa S. Guest Experience

    “golfing break”

    the course is good but the hotel is tired and needs updating. some staff not very helpful or accommodating example was when wanted to look around spa was told by staff we couldn't but no reason given.

    BCOSTABALLENA, Director de Relaciones con Clientes at Barcelo Costa Ballena Golf & Spa, responded to this review
     Dear stephenmcmurtry, In Barceló we strongly believe that there is always room for improvement and your comments will assist our team in their continuous efforts aimed at covering our customers' needs. We lament hearing that the service provided fell short of your expectations as our staff's kindness and willingness to care for our guests is one of the hotels main strengths. However, I like to take the opportunity to explain that the thermal area in the U-Spa that includes three different kinds of saunas, whirlpool, sensation showers and more, cannot be visited whenever it is used by a guest which is a question of discretion. All the hotels facilities were completely renovated 2017 /2018 to provide more comfort, offering a charming accommodation and relax of those who stay with us. We hope that you had a pleasant allover experience. It is gratifying to read that you could enjoy the golf course, one of the largest in Europe with 345 meters wide and 350 meters long, located on the beachfront overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Thank you for your review, we definitely look forward to welcoming you again. Yours sincerely, Theresa S. Guest Experience
