Spent a most fantastic 5 days at the Solymar from October 11th – 16th. My wife and I had only booked this holiday the week before and went for the twin room, sea view, bed and breakfast option. I had read some reviews explaining that these rooms didn’t have certain facilities that would normally be expected of a 4 star... More

We stayed in a 2 bed side sea view apartment and it was lovely. Had a view of beach on one side of balcony and up the main shopping street from the other so lots to see going on all day. Location is superb, right on the beach, a car park underneath as well as a well stocked supermarket as... More

Tried to upgrade when we arrived but informed all occupied and our name taken for upgrade when available. When we went up to our room, we immediately thought why move, it was great, large clean, on the cooler side of the hotel which we appreciated. The hotel was not our original choice but having seen the location of our first... More

Third time I have stayed here but first time in appartments. very well equipped and clean. Two complaints though, the pool area was not as clean as it had been in May and in spite of signs saying towels would be removed from sunbeds to prevent them being reserved this didn't happen. Service in Le champ bar also painfully slow,... More

This is one of the best beach hotels I have stayed at. The rooms are first class with excellent balconies providing great views of the bay and the rock (Il Fach). Breakfast provided a good range of food and was well organised. Service throughout was friendly and efficient. The pool area is the jewel in this hotels crown with a... More

Just completed a six night break at this Hotel from 1st October 2014. The Hotel itself is impressive to say the least; the staff are faultless and I can only assume that the reason this is not a 5 star is due to the fact their is no Silver Service. To compare this with top end Marriott Hotels is easy... More

I'm finishing up a 8 night stay at this hotel with my wife and 6 month daughter. Style, facilities and location are excellent overall. I would rate the value for money and Would agree that sea view room is recommended (my wife met a Dutch couple who were told a very expensive price to upgrade-the room price again!) One issue...

Stayed in the hotel for 5 nights with my husband a 3 year old child and we all loved the place. The sea-view rooms absolutely worth the money. As it was mid September, only small children stayed in the hotel, wasn't noisy at all. Excellent organization during breakfast and dinner. Clean, huge rooms, beautiful, well-maintained bathroom (shower and bathtub as... More
