Thank you once again Sol Gavilanes - another great stay. All as good as we remembered following a previous stay. Lots of positives - the setting is amazing - the staff good - food is decent without being luxury - kids very well looked after by friendly and enthusiastic staff when they went to kids club - always incredibly clean....

Excellent 11 day stay here with our 4 & 2 year old. Staff are incredibly friendly & helpful. Extra pillows & room safe were attended to immediately. Exceptional cleanliness everywhere. We used mini club 3 times which was free. My children wanted to go back. In fact all the entertainment staff were excellent. Night time hotel entertainment in not really... More

It's the perfect place to stay a week with the family. The beach is just perfect, with crystalline turquoise waters. The restaurant at terrace has a beautiful view of sunset while you are dinning. Food is really good. We have repeated for two years and I thing we will do it again.

We booked one of the rooms with a partial view of the beach and had requested a high floor. We got just that and had a great view of Cala Galdana and the beach so did not regret not having booked one with a full beach view. The room was a bit dated but fine and the bathroom seemed to... More

I found the Hotel not to be as good as I'd heard. Whilst I accept that there wasn't an All Inclusive option, I feel that the prices of everything from Beach Towels & Sun-beds, to having a Glass of Drinking water with the Evening Meal, was simply in excess of what I've found to be the case elsewhere!

We have just returned from our 7th stay at the Sol Gavilanes. The hotel lounge has been refurbished and is very contemporary and trendy. Some of the rooms have been upgraded, however we stayed in one of the extremely spacious family rooms which I believe will be refurbished aswell. The hotel is situated off the main beach with breathtaking views.... More

I came to this hotel last year with my husband and wrote a glowing review stating that I would be back this year with my 2 university children. (Last year they opted to go together to Russia). So back we came as a very happy family as my daughter had just found out that she'd passed all of her exams... More

My husband and I have just returned from a week's stay at the Sol Gavilanes. We stayed the last 3 years and decided to come back. Some things have changed....not for the better. The Terrace restaurant, which is more sedate and lovely to be outside, closes at 9:30 pm and not 10 pm anymore. Mini disco starts in the restaurant... More

We have just returned from a weeks holiday at this hotel. It would be impossible to find fault with the location, a beautiful horseshoe bay with lovely fine white sand. Perfect for small children. At this point I must mention that if you do not have small children, as we no longer do, than Unfortunately dinner in the lovely Terrace... More

Me and my Partner went to Sol Gavilanes from 28th June to 5th July. Hotel was excellently kept, very clean, evenly spaced out. The staff were always attentive and the service received from them was excellent. Plates and cutlery cleared from table as soon as you got up to go for something else. Always approached to make sure everything was... More
