The Barcelo Punta Umbria Mar is a cosy Andalusian-style hotel set in a privileged location in Huelva, on a magnificent virgin beach between the Marismas del Odiel Reserve and Los Enebrales Natural Park, and the entrance to the fishing town of the same name, Punta Umbria. The spaciousness and brightness of the, together with the cutting-edge design of the communal areas, and the excellent hotel services, guarantee a perfect stay for couples, families or groups of friends. All just a few steps from the beach thanks to the new walkway which links the hotel to the seafront. And if you are looking for a hotel where you can try the typical Andalusian cuisine, don't miss our buffet restaurants with show cooking and our a-la-carte restaurant, where you can taste international and traditional food. The Barcelo Punta Umbria Mar hotel offers with an entertainment programme for children and adults that includes water sports, sports and social activities. In addition, there is a fun miniclu
Car Park & Leisure Charging. Key staff were below expectation of English speaking
We liked the friendly staff and the location.
Unfortunatley it was too dark in the hallways, some of the elevators didn't work, no air conditioning. The breakfast could be improved by having a better quality jam considering that strawberries are grown in Huelva. The eggs were cold and there was no pepper. The sitting area in the lobby could definately use an upgrade.
The hotel is ight on the beautyfull beach. The Food was good.
There was indoor pool exept for the Spa. The entrance fee for the spa was terribly overpriced and if you left it for lunch you had to pay if you wented to enter again even that it was on the same day. Most disturbing however was for me that there was no free wireless and an hour was charged with 6,5 Euros.
The SpaSaturday evenings entertainment - miming acts
Decor of the communal areas - very drab - needed updating
Hotel with good standard and efficient staff, nicely situated on the beach. Not very busy during our stay, so all amenities and entertainment were available at all times and rather undersubscribed; pool entirely to ourselves. Breakfast and dinner buffet with good choice and of reasonable quality.
Room for 2 adults+2 children rather small (seaviews nice, though) and sofabed not really adequate for several nights even for children.
Hotel services and facilities are excellent. Nightly entertainment for young and old. A real family getaway for relaxation.
Coffee/tea kettle in the room and wine glasses and wine opener would be nice in every room
Clsoe to the beach
smoking rooms when they are suppose to be non-smoking
The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms were nice (although we don't recommend rooms near 154 because of the disco below). We had a sea view quadruple room and for a family with two kids it was good. Really nice installations, good access to beach. Beautiful beaches (and not packed) and surroundings. All in all an excellent experience. We had half-board and they let you decide whether you want to have lunch or dinner, daily and wihtout prior notice.
I didn't like the fact that they charge you 3 euros a night for the safe or some extras, like for example 10 euros for the gym. Also, take your own sun umbrella since on the beach you get ripped off for them at 10 euros an hour!!!
