Stayed there for two weeks. The apartment was clean and comfortable. The cleaning staff visited everyday and we're friendly and very good. Evening Entertainment - this was poor as the entertainment was restricted for just a couple of hours in the evening. It's a pity as the chill out lounge is a great place to relax and the staff in...

We stayed for 2 weeks in July, if travelling with teenagers the 2 bed/ 2 bath bungalows are excellent, the down side is the appalling wi fi, another issue would be the reservation of the sun beds, the hotels states its not allowed but do not enforce this, we did see beds with towels on them remain un-used all day.

We just returned from a great week here. This hotel is a real gem - from the warm welcome we received (despite arriving a day late and after midnight) we knew we were in for a great stay. We had one of the bungalows which was perfect for a couple but could be ok for a family of 3 or... More

Wouldn't visit again! Visited as a group of 5 girl friends for 5 nights in July. Check in was easy and efficient. We were given rooms with joining doors which were nice. Rooms were very basic. Shower ridiculously small. Little balcony was nice. Other than the average room there's not too much more to add. The hotel seems to lack... More

We picked this hotel, as it seemed good value for money, and got good reviews on TA. I stand by this as being accurate! Rooms; good size, clean, comfy beds, good aircon, large balconies, good self catering facilities (although no oven) Pools; very clean, sunbeds comfy, larger pool is saltwater though. Location; not most scenic of areas, but handy for... More

Our room was spacious and extremely clean. The cleaners were in everyday and the staff were really friendly. The food was more expensive than other places nearby but it was of a high standard so it was worth the extra few euro. The beach/clubs are around 10/15 min walk but taxis are really cheap so it's not really an issue.... More

We stayed there for 10 days, 23rd June -04 July. The hotel was very clean, check in was easy and the staff at the hotel very helpful. We went self catering, but rarely used the room for cooking etc, eating out was very reasonable and the hotel food was of very good standard. Our room was spacious, and cleaned daily.... More

I would like to thank you for writing a review about your stay in Sol Barbacan. Thank you for mentioning the clean hotel, the restaurant and the pool. We always try to leave the room longer for our clients who have the flight back later in the day, if occupancy permits. We have also, as you said, shower facilities for... More
