We stayed here for our honeymoon for 12 days and had a lovely time. When we arrived we had a bottle of bubbly on arrival from the Hotel as we were on our honeymoon and I also got another bottle of bubbly for my birthday which was a lovely touch. The apartments are so clean, spacious and lovely views on... More

Sol Barbacan Holiday Resort In my travels since retirement, I have usually either gone cruising or, if I have to stay in a Hotel, then an IHG hotel is what I would normally favour. However with a cruise from Las Palmas booked it was a good idea to stay in Playa des Ingles for a week before departing. I cannot... More

The apartment was very clean and well appointed. A pleasant place to stay. We did hear a bit of night club noise on Friday until about 11:30, but that was the only time. Otherwise it was quiet enough and still very near the Yumbo and various restaurants and coffee houses. One minor niggle - when we sat up in bed... More

The Sol Barbacan was easily the best place I've stayed in in Playa del Ingles and Maspalomas, having been to the area on numerous occasions. For the money we paid, we had a beautiful, spotlessly clean room. The building is well designed against any noise, and the staff are never less than incredibly friendly and helpful. We had the breakfast... More

Thank you for your review and calling us ¨the best place in Playa del Ingles and Maspalomas! As you write, we have the advantage to be in the center of Playa del Ingles but you will not experience noise disturbance because of the building´s design.

I've stayed in all sorts of accommodation from 5 star hotels to cheap B&Bs. This is arguably the best value one I've experienced. We had a one bed apartment which was large, beautifully appointed and spotlessly clean. You really do have the best of both worlds - your own self catering space in a luxurious hotel. The pool area is... More

Thank you for calling us ¨your own self catering space is a luxurious hotel¨. We have apartments and bungalows with the service of a hotel and we are very proud of that. I am happy to read that the pool area, bar, restaurant, cleaning and the staff was satisfying. I hope to welcome you again soon. Kind Regards, Pedro Castro More

Very quiet resort, clean spacious rooms, good value and excellent serviceminded staff both in reception, restaurant and cleaning. Good area for walking and quite a few good restaurants near by. There is a free shuttlebus to the beach, about 2 km away. Excellent place for children.

The hotel is centrally located near plenty of shops and bars although quite a walk from Maspalomas beach 45 mins. The rooms are spacious and clean. The pool area is small and cramped with sun beds all next each other. Half the hotel is sunny the other half is shade.

Good: very clean, nice staff, big terras,welcomspresent Not good: Not very luxury( indoorzwimming pool,slippers,bathcoat etc) A lot of noise from other visitors The whirlpool is not accessible because only babys and little children are inside even without pampers, blehh not for us. Not a good place to be for young people or 50+ The oldies(70+) are like a little community

Having never stayed at Sol Barbacan, I was immediately highly impressed with the quality of this complex. The building in general is very well maintained and this strikes you upon entry to the very attractive foyer.
