Great service, great choice of food, great views, great location, very quiet. We hired a car which was really handy, we could drive down to a car park closer to the beach and the shops to save walking back up the hill. Nice shops that are almost on the hotel grounds, Jandia also has lots of tourist shops and restaurants. Great Market on a Thursday (I think) in Jandia. Staff very friendly, including the large miserable barman, after you get to know him! Would love to go back! Edd & Claire.

Room Tip: There are 4 floors, make sure you are not on the ground floor.

Stayed for a week in Premium All-Inclusive for a week in late March 2012.

The criticisms of the Premium package on Trip Advisor already are very accurate.

GOOD: Club Atlantico bar and restaurant in Premium, good staff, excellent food and service. Rooms totally fine and nice size, but do get 2nd floor or above if you want to see beach.

BAD: Club Atlantico in Premium closes at 7pm. The A la carte restaurant for evening meal is in main hotel with no quiet place to have a drink and food was only warm enough on one evening. It must sit around in the kitchen for ages! In fact, Premium guests have no choice but to drink in main hotel in the evenings. That isn't a problem if you don't mind loud background music in the main hotel bars including karaoke which the German guests seem to love. UK readers will understand it when I say the main hotel is like a holiday camp! That is NOt a Premium experience.

RECOMMENDATIONS TO BARCELO MANAGEMENT: There needs to be a quiet drinking area in Premium. The general manager told us they were looking to open a bar exclusively for Premium guests later in 2012, but where he said it was going to be located is not going to meet the criticism of noise or be accdeptable to their Premium guests. They are planning to open it right next to one of the bars areas with the loud music!!!!! Why Barcelo? Listen to your guests!

OVERALL SUMMARY: Could be so much better but they do not understand that th emajority of premium guests want somewhere nice to drink and chat with other guests without the chat being drowned out by loud music. Have given it 3 out of 5 as the Premium package not a bad product it's just the way it has bene implemented, and is fixable but only if THE MANAGEMENT LISTEN TO THE VERY VALID CRITICISMS ON HERE. Not one of the British guests we spoke to would return.

Room Tip: 2nd floor or above in Premium

Just came back after seven days -- It's worth paying the extra to stay at the club, Adult only, All inclusive. All rooms sea facing.Staff very friendly and attentive. Own very large Jaccuzzi, Two Swimming Pools and own Bar and Restaurant for breakfast and lunch and a la carte restaurant in the evening.Food, Wine and drinks excellent. Everything you can think of is included in the price. Free WiFi and English Newspapers included. Cannot wait to go back again

Having looked at the reviews, we were initially glad to be placed on the Playa side of the resort as this was so much closer to the beach, however the hotel is BADLY in need of an update and was very tired all around. Lots of dark wood which needed some varnish; creaky doors, worn floor tiles-especially on the stairways and corridors.
We did pay a visit to the much newer sister Mar hotel; this was far fresher although winds were bad there due to the higher elevation, much nicer modern decor and lovely bars.
Food at both centres suffered from the usual mass-production issues ie loads of but not much taste, although the fish was done individually and the BBQ ribs (sadly only served once) were pretty good, as was the house red wine and a decent brandy, so altogether not bad
Two decent pieces of entertainment; look out for the Four Tops whether you are a Motown Fan or not, otherwise mainly acts that would just get booed off the stage at most venues.
Probably deserved a 4# rating when initially opened, but now down to a 2-3 and needing a good overhaul
Excellent pool and good staff all around apart from the Maid who kept knocking on the door despite the do not disturb sign when we were taking a siesta!
Quite a few shops at the bottom of the hill-use the lift unless you are super-fit although prices, as expected, were rather high, so take loads of sun protection.
Beach lovely, but featureless and very windy, so best probably best avoided in favour of the pool and pool-bar in our opinion.
Spa VERY expensive and the poorly-equipped gym with no free weights and only a few machines in working order had no air-con and was more like a sauna
The reps worked hard with plenty of pool-side activities, if you like that sort of thing, and plenty of quieter areas, with plenty of loungers too, although several were damaged, beware

Room Tip: Sea view rooms were expensive and several complaints that the view was not good-we did'nt bother

We have just returned from a 1 week stay, strangely in exactly the same room as Pottleshome (252). However would absolutely have to disagree with their comment of 'overpriced'.

If anything for the level of service provided, the quality of food..and indeed the quality of wine, over the standard offering is well worth the money. (Well it clearly was, as I had one glass of wine from the non premium bar last night...and it left me feeling absolutely rank until we got on the plane at lunchtime.)

Balinese day beds excellent. Wifi by the pool was VERY handy to listen to Jazz FM with via my iPhone (although don't expect lightning speeds). Such an unbelievable relaxing week it was ridiculous! So good and as I say reasonably priced, that we are even considering going back during the autumn school holidays.

You did get the occasional sound from the main hotel, but only when the wind was blowing in the wrong direction..and it was hardly a nuisance!

Highlight : The waiter Rachid, looking like a spanish version of Richard Quest from CNN, oddly you never saw him working when Quest was on CNN, and when he was working, Quest wasn't on CNN

just returned from a 2 week stay, food was very very good , but in the evening you have to use the ajoining hotel if you want a drink , and there is nowhere quiet to sit. so you have to listen to the enterment, which is not for us, also we could hear this in our room 252,but it does finish about 10.30. you can also hear music and the entertament team, while sitting by the pool during the day, beds really comfy, nice view, staff always happy and frinedly, this is a large complex , with club premium off to one side a bit like a semi detached house, a bit too big for us , and over priced, had a nice time but wouldnt go back,
