Recently back from a stay at Sol y Sombra in Benidorm, Spain. The reception staff were brilliant, nothing was too much trouble for them. With their help we were able to hire a mobility scooter and they were able to print out railway and bus timetables for us. The food was plentiful and varied. The domestic staff were very friendly...

In winter almost all the rooms were occupied. Most retired people. Bed and shower oké. Food was very good. For young people nothing to do. But the sea is also nearby.....Its a disaster to park your car.

We have just returned from a week at the Sol Y Sombra and just thought we should just say a few words to inform the English of what to expect. The Shuttle Bus dropped us of at midnight at a petrol station and just pointed down a side street. We had no idea of where we were going, so were... More

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
