We have just returned from a lovely relaxing break at the Sol Barbacan. We usually go half board but tried self catering this year as we thought it would be more flexible with teenagers. These bungalows are really a home from home, spacious, clean and well thought out living accommodation. Our two bedroom bungalow had a lovely private patio area,... More

My family my wife, two daughters (9 and 3 years old) stayed at SolBarbacan for two weeks. It was a very pleasant experience, thanks to a nice hotel with a great team behind it. Our well deserved vacation was a great success.

My partner and I stayed in this hotel for 7 days for my birthday and it was wonderful. The staff were very friendly, the entire hotel was cool and clean. Pool area was Goregous.

Just returned from our first stay at this hotel and what a great time we had. Our accommodation was one of the two level bungalows which was exceptionally spacious, very well equipped and very clean and tidy - ideal for our family of 5 - separate bedrooms and sun terrace. Initially we had only booked for the accommodation but when... More

Excellent bungalows with two baths, good kitchen and roof terrace+ patio. The hotel deserves a 4 star rating. Good breakfast, don't book dinner but explore Playa del Ingles instead, where drinks are better and the food has greater variety. smallish pool, but they are building a new larger pool where the tennis courta used to be. Mostly old guests when... More

We've just returned from a 9 night stay at this Aparthotel. This is a stunningly beautiful place. Our apartment was fabulous, clean and spacious. All of the staff are helpful and friendly, however, the star of the show for us was Carmen, who is not just a lovely lady, but a true professional in the bar and restaurant and a... More

I has a very pleasant stay at Sol Barbacan last year. Reception area and pool area is beautiful. Staff were very friendly and helpful. It is also an ideal location, a walk away from lovely restaurants and the Yumbo centre. However there are slight deceptions from the hotel pictures as there is no gym, it is more like an outside...

One of the nicest hotels I have stayed in. We stayed in a self catering bungalow which was spacious and spotless. Overall the hotel was beautiful and clean and the food was lovely. There was music in the bar at night and it was very relaxing. Pool games for the kids during the day time. Would definitely come back here.
