The location of this hotel is great as its right next to the yumbo centre. We spent most of our nights drinking at the yumbo and could stagger home very easily. The rooms in the hotel are nicely decorated and modern. We stayed on a half board basis and the food at dinner was a buffet style, which was okay... More

Everything about Barbacan Sol was fantastic. We had a bungalow which had two bedrooms, two bathrooms, kitchen and sitting room. There is a garden area with table and four chairs and sun beds looking out at a green area which was perfect to sit out with a glass of wine. All staff from reception, cleaners, garden staff and waiters were... More
