It had been the second time we stayed in the hotel. The reservation was managed perfect as always. As the Gold status of Melia we were offered even the upgrade to the bungalow, but on the next day of our arrival which we appreciated, but refused as we did not need the bigger place. The reception is always very friendly... More

This is my second time staying at Sol Barbacan, and I will definitely return. The rooms are great - the pool area, restaurant, breakfast all very good value for money. The staff are always polite and helpful, and the hotel feels secure and friendly. It's the best place I've stayed in in Playa del Ingles.

Just come back from a week stay at Sol Barbacan. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. Service, friendliness, cleanliness all well deserving of 5 stars. I've only reduced one star because there isn't a pool or area just for adults. Lots of families and family entertainment at this hotel which is great but if you want a bit of... More

Stayed here last month with a group of friends. We stayed in apartments bed and breakfast. I was a little worried because I normally holiday with my husband in higher star hotels. I have to say I was pleasantly suprised and would be more than happy to stay here again. Rooms are clean, airy and a decent size. Small kitchen... More

We spent 10 days here (August 2013) in one of the bungalows and it was one of the best holidays we have had. Couldn't fault the place, clean, spacious and friendly staff. The pool was lovely and quiet! The wi-fi was dreadful but I didn't go on holiday to sit online so wasn't a big deal! Can't wait to stay... More

Booked Sol Barbacan for a week for our first trip to Gran Canaria. Can't recommend the island itself and the hotel is a decent addition. It is not your typical European hotel - more Spanish apartments with signs of aging but does the job. Rent a car a must for this island as there is so much to see. +... More

Rooms were fair sized, beds okay, not the comfiest. The balcony on the other hand are fab with your own private beds. Would come again. Staff were... More

Me and my partner are a huge fan of Gran Canaria having visited once prior to this stay and this stay was absolutely superb, we stayed as a party of 4. The location is brilliant it is virtually a 5 minute walk to the Yumbo Centre, which is where all the shops, restaurants and bars are located in Maspalomas. The... More
