5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2009

Just got back from Castillo de Sol on Jan 12 2009.Was there just 3 months ago. Trust me .... I am a grumpy old woman and I love complaining but this place was just great. I went in October on my own. First time ever. Bit apprehensive but it was the best holliday I have ever had.Everyone was friendly and I was not allowed to be alone for a single minute. I loved it so much I went back in Jan and I was greeted by everyone as a long lost friend. Lorreiene , the entertainments manager is an absolute star. She makes the place.She knows everyones name and organises really fun things for everyone to do.The appartments are very basic but immaculately clean with maid service almost every day and clean towels several times a week. The pool bar does great food and snacks and every night they have happy hour and some entertainment.The only complaint I heard was the appartments on the higher floors were very noisy at night as the music from the town drifted up. This goes on until 4am most nights. On the lower floors noise is not a problem.Its 139 steps to the shopping centre , easy peasy going down and coming back just pace yourself and its fine. Taxi is about 2 /3 euros .Booked Castillo because it was the cheapest holliday. The single suppliments were unbelievable on some hollidays and I really thought I would be staying in a dump but it was great.Basic but clean. WHAT MORE DO YOU WANT ??? Best restaurant in town is next door. MINANANS is owned by Peter ( a jordie ) and Juan. Beautiful food cooked just for you.Wonderful selection and not too expensive.I ate there first night and was blown away so I ate there every night.Down town there are a thousand cafes that cater for the tourists............egg and chips , sunday roast etc and its cheap as chips but if you want quality food MINANAS is the place.Would reccomend Castillo to anyone.I love it and will be going back again. Any other 'Singletons ' out there reading this. Dont bat an eyelid just book and go. I felt safe , didnt feel ' alone ' and I had a ball !!!

  • Liked — Everyone was so friendly. MINANAS next door. Best food in Puerto Rico if you like quality.
  • Disliked — Bit tacky in town but low life brits abroad like some other places.Great mix of old and young.

Excellent if you have children. Lorraine the entertainer keeps them entertained most of the day and night. Fishing, mini golf, For the adults she does a pool tornament , aqua aerobics and water polo. The pool bar is good value for money with a happy hour buy 1 get 1 free between 8 and 9 every night. Yes the accomodation may be a little shabby But you get what you pay for. Rooms include a cooker 2 hobs and a kettle. Any problems and maintenance sorts them out same day. Maids are in most days. Receptionists are lovely and very helpful. 2 flights of stairs down and you are in the main complex. The hotel has good entertainment on at night . Bird show, reptile show, blues brothers, robbie williams and more. Plus bingo and quiz. Good decent sized pool and balconies. My daughter is 10 and she loved every minute. We would definately go and stay there again.Just remember to Take the wee sheets off the bed and you will have a peaceful nights sleep.
