Isla Canela Golf course is situated within a Nature Reserve where the river Guadiana empties into the Atlantic Ocean. Its beautiful location and the mild climate of the region make it an ideal destination for golfing all year around.
The golf course, designed by Juan Catarineu, is successfully integrated into existing flat terrain and is very comfortable to walk. Wide fairways run between natural dunes and many trees - oranges, olives, eucalyptuses and palms- have been introduced not only to enhance the location but, by their position, to provide natural hazards. At first sight it looks like an easy golf course, but it has its hidden difficulties.
No problems booking online and when we got to Isla Canela I just needed to email the hotel the confirmation. We were a 2 ball following another 2 ball but sandwiched between a 4 ball and a 3 ball so a slow round. Course nice (but lots of water). Nice bar area for drinks.
Course in excellent condition and staff very helpful and pleasant
We were 1 hour late. But managed to go out with no problems. 8.10 was Before sunrise !
Vvery nice course. Partially small fairways . The greens are very good and fast.
Lovely course quite challenging, really needed the buggy. All staff very friendly & welcoming
Nice course very well kept, but wish reception would stick to clients booking times they tend to say just play now to everyone!! This lead to 3 groups waiting at the first not a good start as we had to wait at just about every hole.
Lovely course some tricky holes, always challenging. Staff at hotel very polite & helpful
Had a lovely time course was busy but everyone was friendly
Isla Canela is in outstanding condition. A great test of golf with tree lined fairways which makes it a little tight from the tee. Greens are absolutely magnificent and very very quick. Alll in all a great golf course and outstanding value for money.
Good course, tight, a challenge, busy but minimal waiting.

Front desk friendly Buggy good enough Fairways good Greens good Too many slow players on the course. Playing more then 5.30 is a real problem.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. Great golf course.

This is also a hidden gem, or may be not so hidden anymore as there were lots of players there. Value for money is unbeatable and it is achallenging course with good, fast greens.
Again a very good course which was both challenging and in good condition with good greens. Had a quick drink after our round in the busy clubhouse.7.5/10
We found the staff here very nice as well, they gave us umbrellas going out in the rain, which cleared up after about two hours, at least we got in dry. Not too sure about the course, maybe would have enjoyed it better, on a fine day, as there was water logged every where. Buggies were not allowed out on the day.
