Excellent bungalows with two baths, good kitchen and roof terrace+ patio. The hotel deserves a 4 star rating. Good breakfast, don't book dinner but explore Playa del Ingles instead, where drinks are better and the food has greater variety. smallish pool, but they are building a new larger pool where the tennis courta used to be. Mostly old guests when... More

We've just returned from a 9 night stay at this Aparthotel. This is a stunningly beautiful place. Our apartment was fabulous, clean and spacious. All of the staff are helpful and friendly, however, the star of the show for us was Carmen, who is not just a lovely lady, but a true professional in the bar and restaurant and a... More

I has a very pleasant stay at Sol Barbacan last year. Reception area and pool area is beautiful. Staff were very friendly and helpful. It is also an ideal location, a walk away from lovely restaurants and the Yumbo centre. However there are slight deceptions from the hotel pictures as there is no gym, it is more like an outside...

One of the nicest hotels I have stayed in. We stayed in a self catering bungalow which was spacious and spotless. Overall the hotel was beautiful and clean and the food was lovely. There was music in the bar at night and it was very relaxing. Pool games for the kids during the day time. Would definitely come back here.

House/Location: The hotel is situated across the street from Yumbo Center. This makes this hotel a perfect base for exploring Playa del Ingles nightlife. There is a taxistand right in front of the building, which allows you to get to the beach within 5 minutes for less than 5 Euros. The hotel consists of a 6-storey main building and a... More

It had been the second time we stayed in the hotel. The reservation was managed perfect as always. As the Gold status of Melia we were offered even the upgrade to the bungalow, but on the next day of our arrival which we appreciated, but refused as we did not need the bigger place. The reception is always very friendly... More

This is my second time staying at Sol Barbacan, and I will definitely return. The rooms are great - the pool area, restaurant, breakfast all very good value for money. The staff are always polite and helpful, and the hotel feels secure and friendly. It's the best place I've stayed in in Playa del Ingles.
