Hotel Barcelo Talanquera Beach Resort ***

in Juan Dolio (photos taken on Mai 2003)

the hotel

The hotel is quite nice and agreeable. The only flaw is that we had a room with some plumbing defects (no water in the sink and just a trickle in the bathtub... but after changing room it was pretty ok), and moreover we're not the only ones to have these kind of problems: somebody got inundated each times he was having a shower. In the end, this hotel should need a good plumber (appears that there's lot of unemployment there !!!) Anyway nothing serious enough to waste the holidays. There a honest value for money. Just to know: there was a neighouring hotel (50 metres distance) called "Barcelo Decameron Juan Dolio" (same group and same category, so same price too) which seemed more attractive to us.

The g eographical collocation of Juan Dolio permits some jaunts to lots of close sites : Bocca Chicca, San Pedro, Santo Domingo, Catalina Island...

Another detail: in spite of what it's written on the official description of the hotel, this hotel doesn't have a tennis court ( you can always find an agreement with the other hotel, but it's a bit complicated...).

Some views of the swimming pools :



Beaches around the hotel. The photos were taken during a bike tour (the hotel kindly lended the bikes to us) : super !.



Ride on all-terrain vehicles rented outside the hotel (just to pay a little bit less expensive).

This ride permits you to visit the inland, see some sugar cane fields, cross many farmer villages,etc... It's a cultural, ludic and sports tour
