We had a pleasant stay here all though i'm not really sure why this hotel is quite so highly regarded by it's guests. First impressions of outside and reception/lobby area were good and check in fast and efficient. The room (1 bed apt) was clean, spacious and well equipped even having a kitchenette in the living area but was a... More

We stayed in Sol Barbacan in October 2014. We were three Irish adults in our 20s. We rented one bungalow for one week. It was approx €35 in the taxi from the Las Palmas airport/ 20 minutes drive. Sol Barbacan was opened in 1980s and the architecture reflects this. The staff were helpful on reception but we noticed there was... More

Stayed here with my mum and sister for 5 nights. I had emailed the hotel beforehand with a few questions and heard back from them straight away. Very helpful. We arrived about 8pm at the hotel after a long day and were delighted when we went to our room, there was a large bottle of water left in the fridge... More

Stayed here for 2 weeks in September, usually go to Riu Flamingo but tried here instead, what a find! We asked if we could change our room and it was attended to with grace and pleasure. No looking back after that, had a lovely room high up away from traffic. Facilities were good, maid service unquestionable, prompt and efficient, as... More

Sol Barbacan is a fourstar hotel centrally situated in Playa de Ingles. Taxistation outside and next to a large shoppingcenter. Lots of fine restaurants nearby plus fast foodplaces. I can recommend Tango Tapas. Just a short walk from the hotel. Great service, food and Mojitos. The pool and the restaurant of the hotel is in the center of the v-shaped... More

Just got back from a first time trip to gran canaria. We was really impressed with this hotel. It's on a fairly busy traffic island in the middle of town with an entrance to the Yumbo centre literally a couple of minutes walk away. I emailed a couple of questions before we travelled and they responded really quickly, I also... More

I stayed in a 2 bed bungalow with my sister for 3 nights on the 23rd to 26th September switching from the Playa del sol due to a lack of sleep from the heat and constant 24/7 noise. The bungalow facilities were great; free wifi, air con, loads of channels on TV, fully loaded kitchen equipment, everything you could possibly... More

This was my first holiday with my partner, both of us 24. We chose Sol Barbican purely because of the fantastic reviews, having read awful ones about hotels in surrounding areas. Firstly, I cannot fault the cleaniliness of Sol Barbican. I was very impressed with the constant upkeep of the cleaning, towels were replaced whenever we needed and sheets were... More
