I had booked the Sol Barbacan and unfortunately had to cancel for health reasons. I cancelled on the day before being due to arrive. I found my bank account had been credited with most of the money I'd paid the next day, could not believe service by Otel.com. Will hopefully be able the rebook soon with the Sol Barbacan. Thank...

This hotel /resort is listed as a 4 star, however it falls short of this grade in several areas. The plus points : * So very central and quiet . * Spacious & well equipped apartments. * Excellent and friendly staff overall * Up-market and spotlessly clean * Great TV channels and free Wi-fi. The negative points. * A tad... More

Good service from all the staff. Though it is central, which was great for us, it is pretty quiet, which is also great. High quality evening buffet, with terribly more-ish desserts. Mostly families and from Scandinavia, Holland and Germany. Our little suite was quite large enough. Not a 4-star hotel in UK or capital -city terms, but not to be... More

A la carte dinners are very good. There is a small supermarked and in the area is a shopping mall. The distance to the beache is perfect to walk along a... More

We've just returned from a 9 night New Year stay in a one bedroom apartment at the Sol Barbacan. The hotel is nice enough but we found that little things let it down a bit: The cleanliness of the room wasn't brilliant upon arrival and the maid service is average (no changing of bed linen, entering room even when the...

Playa isn't a upmarket resort. Let's call a spade a spade. It's for sun and sea and drinking. However It was my first time there as part of group and I have to say this hotel was a little oasis. I'm not a snob but I couldn't be dealing with drinking teens and legless grannies. So was nice to see... More

We had our "annual" stay at the Barbacan Sol for a long week at Christmas 2014 and as many times/years before, we really enjoy the place! The apartments are well equipped and have large terraces with chairs, table and sun loungers. Some of the apartments are starting to show some "wear and tear", and need to get an overhaul. Still,...
