I highly recommend the Sol Barbacan! We went self catering in a bungalow and were upgraded from one family room to two double rooms for free so that we could be more comfortable! The staff were extremely polite and helpful, the bungalow was very spacious and the grounds were spotless and attractively planted. The bungalows have a main bathroom and... More

We visited with 2 teenage boys and a 78 year old grandmother. We stayed on a bungalow which was fantastic. Nicely decorated , just lacked mirrors in the 2nd bedroom and plug sockets. Very frustrating for a lady to get ready !! Otherwise fantastic. Hotel staff worked hard and were very friendly. The entertainment team certainly kept us amused during... More

After returning from a two week stay in Sol Barbican Bungalows in Gran Canaria, and like the previous reviews, we found the accomodation to be excellent. The staff were so helpful and always pleasant, and the accomodation was 5 star spotless. We had requested a bungalow close to the tennis courts, as recommended by a previous trip advisor review, as... More

stayed here for a week, lovely clean hotel, you need to be at the swimming pool just before 9 as every sun lounger is taken by 9, entertainment could be better and also the wifi works on and off, 20 minute walk to the beach would stay in the hotel again if I visited gran canaria

Nice and well maintained hotel. Apartments are clean and well furnished. Every day clean bed linen and fresh towels. Swimming pool is too small for the number of people. Weak internet (WiFi) in the park. Sunbeds are lined up in rows tightly together and you therefore have no privacy at all. It's officially not allowed to "reserve" sunbeds by putting... More

Just returned from a fortnight in the Sol Barbacan. We had a two bedroom apartment which was beautiful, almost luxurious in comfort. The two bathrooms helped massively as we have two children; the patio was private and the roof-top sun deck was a pleasure to use. The cleaning was excellent, the housekeeping staff a pleasure as was all the staff... More
