Located in the picturesque area of Isla Canela – a gorgeous natural island situated at the mouth of the river Guadiana and snuggled between Spain and Portugal – the Playacanela Hotel boasts a lovely beachfront location, modern amenities, and charms with traditional arabesque style.

The Playacanela Hotel offers excellent 4-star services, ensuring its guests are well looked after. All of the rooms are fully equipped with air conditioning, satellite TV, telephone and mini-bar (both at additional charge). The hotel also has two panoramic lifts, 24 hour reception and disabled facilities. The list of free services you can enjoy here is quite long so you will not run out of things to do. You can start your day by heading to the themed outdoor pool and lounge on the hammocks around it, followed by a chill out session in the Jacuzzi that is also there. Fully relax as your children are well taken care of by the entertainment team – there is a Beach Dolphin Mini-Club that is a real treat for the youngest guests, as well as a Teen Club that offers fun sports and pool activities such as archery, shuffle board, mini-golf, and table tennis. There is also a Maxi Club – you did not think that the grownups will be neglected by the entertainment staff, did you? There are organised sport events, theme parties, and night time entertainment aplenty. Staying fit while indulging into the many treats of Spanish cuisine is now possible thanks to the Fitness Club which boasts a diverse range of activities including yoga, Zumba, body pump, stretching, and more.

However, if you prefer to spend your time in blissful relaxation, you should head to the Spa & Wellness Acquaplaya! Are you ready to leave the hotel and explore the local area? A privileged beachfront location means that the beach is right at your doorstep, while there is also a golf course only 2km away and a gorgeous Isla Canela Marina, only 3 minutes away from you. The area boasts quite a few places of interest like Doñana National Park, Odiel Marshlands Natural Area and Punta del Moral.

The Playacanela Hotel is a great option for anyone who wants to spend their holiday in Spain in a more original way than usually – the magnificent arabesque style building will make you fall in love with it, while the one of a kind location, between the Coast of Portugal and Isla Cristina Port, means a vibrant setting, boasting a mix of two lively, European cultures.
