Really not as bad as we expected, food was good, lots of choice we went full board as not much more than breakfast only. Nice and clean, loads of hot water. No views and noisy when they empty the bins. No smart tv to swop language into English which we have one to expect these days.

I have just returned from a long weekend at this hotel. The hotel itself was lovely and clean. Maid service every day who made our bed and cleaned the bathroom. Got fresh towels every day too. The hotel staff all seemed very friendly and helpful. The language barrier was a bit of a problem at times but got there in... More

Good enough Hotel and a couple of friendly staff but not all bar far. The food was pretty good but a strange mixture to say the least. The evening's entertainment was purely geared up for the Spanish and if you are anything other, I would suggest an early night or leave the Hotel for some life. Pool on roof was... More

DO NOT GO IF YOU'RE ENGLISH!!!!!!! When we got to the hotel they had given our rooms away as we arrived late. We were given the smallest rooms ever. The receptionist who spoke little English was really nice and got us all into bigger rooms with a balcony. Not much of a view but better than what we began with.... More

After reading previous reviews by Brits before we went, we were somewhat wary about our arrival at the Sol Y Sombra. These fears were most definitely unfounded. We arrived at 11.45pm and checked in with the very friendly and helpful girl behind the desk. She told us that if we were hungry they would open up the dining area for... More
