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

Stayed here for two weeks in September and absolutely loved the apartments. The apartment was spacious, clean and modern. The food by the pool was very tasty and the animation team were great fun and really made our stay even more enjoyable :) The beach was a bit of a walk away but taxis were very cheap (€2.50) to the...

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
