Lovely hotel, great location. Sea view room lovely, fab bathroom and comfortable beds.School holiday season is really stressful for sun beds, however, the fact that they do not open the pool until 10.00 am is a huge bonus as this stops the stress of having to get up at 6.00 am to put towels down. Well done Sol y Mar.... More
