The Catalonia Punta del Rey comes up trumps on the pool and food front. Plus, it’s close to a load of black-sand beaches.
Everything’s within easy reach of this place, including bars, restaurants and beaches. You’ll hit the first black-sand cove in a few minutes’ walk. And you can bus it to the capital, Santa Cruz, in 20 minutes.
It’s the massive pool area that steals the show here. It comes with a split-level pool, a huge sun terrace and a snack bar. Meanwhile, grown-ups get their own deck, which is stocked with whirlpools.

Nice break, but
If you don’t smoke, you won’t like the pool area and bar. There was no control on smoking at all. We couldn’t use the pool bar of an evening as it was like a fog. Our room was noisy at night as it overlooked the pool. However the hotel is clean, food is good and the staff are friendly. The room was spacious with a nice bathroom More

3rd visit - There are many reasons why this hotel is the only one we return to
Back home after our 3rd visit this year. Our room request (119) has been generously accommodated each time - which I know is not guaranteed but is definitely appreciated ! . It is so nice to return to a place where the staff remember you (and even your preferred drink !) - all the staff from reception ( you could smile sometimes though !) cleaners to room servicing to restaurant to bar to animacion really go the extra mile to ensure that everyone enjoys their holiday. I have noted marked improvements even in the 4 month gap since we were last here - steaks were of top quality, OJ machines instead of the iced jugs which caused a waterfall, additional working plug socket in the room, more investment in animation equipment - your loyal customers appreciate these efforts. The only one down side for us this time - there was a basketball conference staying at the hotel while we were here and many young boys were in residence however they were not adequately supervised by their teachers/parents/coaches which made mealtimes uncomfortable / chaotic with no respect or any idea of how to wait in turn - and we were subjected to some uncomfortable and embarrassing moments while these unsupervised children stared , pointed and laughed at my disabled daughter . I appreciate that the hotel is open to everyone but we have always felt it was a sanctuary for us and this experience has put us off slightly. I would recommend insisting that large groups of children attending sporting events or birthday parties are adequately managed in future. We mentioned this to the rep but were simply informed that the group would be vacating the next day so meantime we did not eat in the restaurant in order to avoid the upset. We had intended to return in June but we are now undecided - however this should not put anyone else off - we have had 3 x awesome holidays here this year and we just got unlucky this time - overall we had a fantastic holiday as always and this behaviour is in no way the fault of this excellent hotel Many thanks as always for a great trip The Reid Family (119)More
A lovely stay
we had a lovely two week holiday at the Punta del Rey The hotel is spotlessly clean. The food is varied and good. the day time snacks are excellent . The staff are all helpful and polite. we had a superior room , well furnished and clean. lots of entertainment day and night. As seniors the only draw back is the location, A very steep hill to the beach. but local buses are frequent and stop outsideMore
Great first holiday!
Fab first holiday for a young couple! We came here in the middle of July and arrived quite late at the hotel so missed out on food, however there was a shop just down the road from the hotel where we got water and some snacks for the night. Really spacious room with a lot of storage, we were on one of the top floors so had an amazing view of the gardens of the hotel and could just see the sea. The only downfall was getting up early for sunbeds, soon as the doors were open to the pool there was a crazy rush for beds but I think this was because we went in peak season. The food was amazing! Plenty to choose from, even a had a roast dinner on the Sunday! There was a self service machine for soft drinks and always had food on between lunch times, like burgers, pizzas and chips etc. The entertainment in the night was really good and funny with different shows on every night! Plenty of alcohol to choose from! We went to Loro Park and Siam Park in the week which you can get tickets and transfers in the hotel which was a bonus! Loved both days! Had an amazing first holiday defiantly will go here again!More
