8/10 Very good

Fabulous location and quality for a budget hotel.
Lovely friendly hotel. Has been refurbed with nice clean rooms, comfy beds and a powerful shower that doesn’t flood the bathroom. Fab views from the balconies overlooking the pool - you can see dolphins in the sea. Some of the breakfast food items could be better quality, but for the price we paid the value was brilliant. This is a fabulously located hotel. Right on the sea and prom with easy access to numerous lovely places to eat and drink. And the new rooftop bar is amazing! Highly recommended.

8/10 Very good

Standard rooms very poor.
The standard rooms are rather disappointing, no hairdryer in bathroom or kettle in room, old furniture. Pictures you see on websites are of the upgraded rooms, which cost alot more. There are no seating areas in reception, or a lounging area, its almost like they want you to come through the entrance and go straight to your room. The food is just okay, salads very good. Desert plain.

Parts of the hotel need some refurbishing, but for a 3 star hotel it was very good. Great value for money. I would stay there again.

10/10 Exceptional

Great hotel with a below par breakfast.
Overall La Barracuda is an excellent hotel, the staff are friendly yet professional in what they do. If I have any minus points it is the breakfast and then only the cooked breakfast. Whilst the continental breakfast is of a high quality, there does not seem to be too much care taken over the cooked one. The sausages for example are just the tinned cocktail variety, the bacon tends to be dry and hard and the baked beans I also found hard on ocassions. This is actually the third time we have stayed here so it shows what we think of it and I can not give it a thumbs down based only on the breakfast.
