We had plenty of space and the apartment was clean with a lovely view over the pool area. The staff were... More

We stayed in August 2015 - a group of 8 of us had adjoining 2 bedroom bungalows. Staff here are excellent - very friendly and always had a smile on their faces. Bungalows are great - very clean and enough room for a family of four. The two bathrooms are a complete bonus! 3 swimming pools depending on your mood... More

We recently stayed in a 2 bed bungalow as a family 4. The bungalow was great, very well equipped and met all of our needs. The house keeping was excellent, the maids were always very friendly and thorough. There were two pools, we opted to use the smaller one as we had young children and it was easier to obtain... More

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.
