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 10 day stay and it was one of our best holidays ever. The hotel staff are all very friendly and the rooms were spotless. The animation team was excellent. Hardly saw my five year old daughter Ava as she was constantly at the mini club with the wonderful Marcella who ran it. The work that the animation... More

Facilities for kids and adults are excellent: kids club and entertainment staff are really good, clean and comfortable apartment, (our apt. was cleaned every day), lovely big veranda overlooking pool. We had one buffet and one a la carte meal and both were really good although the a la... More

Stayed here with a group of friends (25 year olds). Was very impressed with the hotel. There is one main pool, an outdoor jacuzzi, kids pool and another smaller pool. All are equipped with numerous sun loungers and there is also a lifeguard on duty all day which was great to see! Room was spacious and clean, towels were changed... 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

Three of us stayed at the Sol Barbacan during July and August - and it is pretty hard to fault the hotel, but there are one or two minor irritations that are worth being aware of, so that you are really happy with your stay. We stayed in a two bedroom villa (55) towards the rear of the complex -... More

Stayed there in January 2014. Nice hotel, good attentive stuff- high quality food. The only major critism- bit far from the beach. Wi Fi was rubbish- free, but didn't worked properly almost every day. Sofas in the living room could be more comfortable.
