Great Location for Yumbo. Hotel very clean and modern. Bar food excellent value. Bungalows are great if on holiday with friends. Supermarket onsite and plenty nearby for drinks and snacks. Wifi connection was poor in Bungalow but fine near main hotel. Even being Melia silver rewards doesn't guarantee late checkout which was disappointing.

We have just returned from a week at the Sol Barbacon and really enjoyed our stay. We stayed in one of the garden bungalows, which was perfect for us with our 2 young children and we spent a lot of the day relaxing on our private roof terrace. The buffet breakfast was excellent with lots of choice and freshly cooked... More

I had booked the Sol Barbacan and unfortunately had to cancel for health reasons. I cancelled on the day before being due to arrive. I found my bank account had been credited with most of the money I'd paid the next day, could not believe service by Otel.com. Will hopefully be able the rebook soon with the Sol Barbacan. Thank...

This hotel /resort is listed as a 4 star, however it falls short of this grade in several areas. The plus points : * So very central and quiet . * Spacious & well equipped apartments. * Excellent and friendly staff overall * Up-market and spotlessly clean * Great TV channels and free Wi-fi. The negative points. * A tad... More

Good service from all the staff. Though it is central, which was great for us, it is pretty quiet, which is also great. High quality evening buffet, with terribly more-ish desserts. Mostly families and from Scandinavia, Holland and Germany. Our little suite was quite large enough. Not a 4-star hotel in UK or capital -city terms, but not to be... More

A la carte dinners are very good. There is a small supermarked and in the area is a shopping mall. The distance to the beache is perfect to walk along a... More

First of all, I would like to thank you for your remark. Regarding to your comment about room 173, firstly I have to apologize if you had the impression that nothing was done, probably it was not done in the way you expected, but our staff went to the area to check if there was noise, however, in order to...

We've just returned from a 9 night New Year stay in a one bedroom apartment at the Sol Barbacan. The hotel is nice enough but we found that little things let it down a bit: The cleanliness of the room wasn't brilliant upon arrival and the maid service is average (no changing of bed linen, entering room even when the...

First of all, I would like to thank you for rating Sol Barbacan. It gives me pleasure that you enjoyed your room. The temperature of the pools are regulated by the standards of the Spanish law, which was around 25 degrees during your stay. I am surprised that you found the housekeeping service average, which is normally high rated by... More

Playa isn't a upmarket resort. Let's call a spade a spade. It's for sun and sea and drinking. However It was my first time there as part of group and I have to say this hotel was a little oasis. I'm not a snob but I couldn't be dealing with drinking teens and legless grannies. So was nice to see... More
