I first visited this hotel in 2003 and as the title says, nothing has changed. It was a bit dated in 2003 and it definitely is now but it is clean, is centrally located, great value and most of all the views from the bedrooms are the best I have ever experienced

Stayed at the Sol e Mar from 10th to 17th November 2014. This hotel had caught our eye while in Albufiera the year before and then when we arrived home it was recommended to us by my sister's neighbour. Wonderful hotel, every comfort. Bar is a delight with a circular bar placed under a circular rainbow coloured dome. The sun... More

Stayed here from the 10th to 17th January and didn't want to come home. My first impression of the Sol e Mar was Berta on reception who was so happy to book us in, helpful and all smiles. It was a birthday celebration and Berta arranged a rooftop room together with a bottle of champagne on ice. So thoughtful of... More

Just returned from a week at this very comfortable hotel. Occupying the best position in the Old Town, the beach and town facilities are literally steps away (although many places were shut in January, as it's low season). The hotel is well maintained and spotless. It has stayed true to its architectural era and the bar area is a work... More

This Hotel is still living in the sixties with regard to the decor,saying that the rooms are clean. The highlight of the nights stay was the bar man in "The Rainbow Bar" he was fabulously attentive. The view is lovely, the breakfast was fine would I stay again that would be a big fat yes.

This hotel is set directly on the beach with easy access to the lovely old town. Although a little tired it is worth every penny. All rooms face the sea with a view to die for. Food in the hotel is good and plentiful. The staff would be hard to beat and are more than helpful, making everyone feel welcome... More
