“Great Holiday”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

Sol Lunamar was a great place to stay, the location is perfect. Near to everything you can need!
Getting into the room at first was a little disappointing but I think the tiredness from travelling had a part to play, it was basic and quite small it had a table, a smaller table, large wardrobe, a small kitchen area with a sink and hob, the bathroom was nice except the shower sprayed everywhere including the ceiling and walls but it's not my house so I wasn't too fussed! The main thing that annoyed me was that I requested a double bed but they were 2 single beds that looked like a hard sofa looking thing, however they did the job of letting me have a good nights sleep, just had to push them together.
Balcony is a good size and has a table and chairs and a line to hang your clothes. Nice layout as you aren't right next to another balcony
We had some noisy neighbours next door for 2 nights, their kitchen seemed to be next to our "bedroom area" and woke us up with cups and washing up etc. but had no troubles the rest of the holiday
Cannot hear any noise from outside which is good - air con is a definite must and well worth the money, works brilliantly, I had to turn it off in the night as it got so cool!
Well worth the safe as well in my opinion, just a deposit that you get back at the end. Maids were very efficient and left the place clean every 2 days. The whole hotel is very nice and clean and modern.
Regardless of other comments, ALL staff at Sol Lunamar were very friendly and helpful, very approachable. Solved problems quickly. Had some trouble on and off with the door card as it wouldn't swipe but it was easily solved at reception.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone, good value for money and perfect location. Lovely lovely pool area too! We didn't have much trouble with the sun loungers, we found as long as you got there by 10.30 depending how busy the hotel is at the time you would get a sun lounger. I also found there is always plenty of sun loungers at any time you just need to pick them up and drag them somewhere!

OVERALL thumbs up!!! I loved my stay at Sol Lunamar :)

my wife and i have have stayed at the sol lunamar apts 6 times in the past 3 years .

and well looked after .the complex is well maintained and a credit to all the staff
who are very polite and always willing to help .
you must try the apts and see for yourself .

Rooms were basic but not really bothered as not in them long enough anyway!!. Only issue with our room 202 next to luggage and wifi room, I didn't like been in the ground floor at all, I asked of we could move but was told the hotel was full and to come back tomorrow (so we didn't bother). The power socket was no where near the side in kitchen so had to go on the floor with kettle boiling, luckily we didn't have kids. If you want a sunbed get up early as we went down every morning at about 9 and there was 30+ beds with towells on and a sign of know one. Some staff very warming, others ignorant. Back gate brilliant as straight down to beach, just closes at 12 so you have to go up a load Of steps. Nice place you wouldn't believe magulluf only a ten min walk away !!! Quite quiet on a night. Overall wasnt that bad just an average stay, had the staff been better possibly would go back.

just returned from our 3rd 10 day stay at this hotel and i wouldnt dream of staying anywhere else, the rooms are basic but very clean and cleaned every other day, ideal location to have a great night out but still enjoy a good nights sleep at the end of it with out a lot of noise! theres some great food places to eat near by, floridas for breakfast was our favourite! thank you sol lunamar for making yet another fantastic holiday....see you next year :)

Arrived and given our room which we took one look at and said,"no way". It was tiny with a fridge,sink and 2 divan beds which were meant to be your soafa as well and the beds were solid. Complained but ended up paying 210 euro more for a 1 bedroom apt which is what we thought we had booked in the first place. Same as other room with the rock hard beds, nowhere at the kitchen area to plug in the kettle or toaster as the nearest socket was near the floor and the leads werent long enough ( how safe is that having a boiling kettle on the floor) no extractor fan in the bathroom and the heat was terrible but the best was the aircon which took so long to cool the place and did not go into the bedroom so it was hard to sleep. We asked about a late check out when we arrived and were told that we would have to wait to Sunday night before our Tuesday departure to see if our room would still be free or not. Sunday night we asked and were told we could keep the room till 6pm for a 20euro fee, we paid and thought this was great as we could party late into the night on our last night and sleep most of the day before going home.....how wrong we were, 10.30am the cleaners came and woke us and a note was left telling us our room was needed and we would have to change rooms.....after a pointless argument with reception staff and asking for the manager who I was told was not available til the next day when we would be gone, I had no choice other that to move rooms as I had visions of ending up in a Spainish jail if I got any angrier. With the overall final cost of staying in the HOTEL ROOM FROM HELL we could easily have stayed in a 4* hotel half board for less money. NEVER AGAIN SOL LUNAMAR!!!

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else.

Stayed here for 10 days in end of aug/sept. It was great, no complaints at all. Rooms were clean and comfortable, a little basic but all of Spain is! The beds are separate but you can rearrange the room to make a double, you have a fridge, toaster, kettle, two hob rings and all pans/crockery you will need. Bathroom was clean, with a vey small bath (fine for children!) with a powerful shower over it. Maid came every other day and cleaned and gave fresh towels. Air con is free, but need to pay €15 deposit for the remote. Safe is also €15 deposit for key and cost us €25 to use for 10 days. No large groups mainly couples and families, sun beds were always reserved so just get up and put your towel down!! Pool was lovely and pool bar had happy hour twice a day (2 pints for€2.30)... Rafa the bar man was ace. All the staff were friendly if you needed them!

Palma nova is great and using the back gate you are only 50m from the main strip and the beach. All in all a great holiday and I wouldn't hesitate to go back and stay again.

Best place to eat was godfathers (out the back gate to the beach then turn right, it is right on the beach) did great steaks and paella!

Room Tip: Pool view rooms are much nicer, don't pay for one though, just ask reception nicely when you che...

What can I say! Holiday got off to a terrible start after taxi driver overcharged us by 20 euro to get to the Sol Lunamar apartments so look out for this make sure u ask for a price before u get in! :( got our studio room which was unfortunately on ground level overlooking tarmac and a large gate and was very basic although did the job as we aren't fussy (if u get any of the rooms on the 4th floor even numbers example 410 u will b in this situation so perhaps request otherwise). Front desk are lovely and cant fault bar staff either. There is no entertainment during the day or at night so just to be aware of that. Room servicing happened twice over the week however on one of these occasions although the bed was beautifully made and appeared to be changed it wasnt as a mark that i had noticed on my pillow from my mascara was still there only that pillow was now over my boyfriends side of the bed! :/ The location is brilliant!! gate out to the beach and shops is a gem! also u can walk to palmanova and magaluf in 5 minutes :) Pool is lovely too :)

Overall: Good value for the money, very basic apartments, lovely pool area, great location, maybe dodgy chambermaids??? Cant help but think a little bit off entertainment and a bit of modernisation would make this place exceptional!
