“YOU JUST DON'T DO THAT TO PEOPLE.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

I booked this trip in a hurry and didn't had time to look at other options, The price was right so there we went. To start, the driver didn't know were the hotel was and got lost, so we arrived at 9pm. Made the check in and asked about dinner: " Sorry, the dinner ends at 9 and its now ten past nine!" We were 6, with 2 children of 4 and 8 years that travelled all day and were tired and hungry. YOU JUST DON'T DO THAT TO PEOPLE. They didn't try to help us, didn't speak to the manager, nothing. I was too tired to start my vacations that way, so went to the restaurant next door. The apartment was basic but clean and faced the pool. I usualy like to sleep after lunch with my kids to avoid the worst of the sun, but exactly at that time, they putted loud music witch made it impossible to sleep. And they have a sign saying that the pool is a music free zone! On our trip back i asked for a picnic bag as we were checking out before lunch. They said that i didn't had lunch included in the day of check out. I hasked about the two meals that i paid for and didn't had on the check in day and they said there was not there problem. People like this should not be allowed in the hotel business!

Just got back from Sol Post and was very diapppointed with the hotel. i went with my 7 yr old boy..When we arrived, the receptionist gave us a key and directed us to roomon first floor - did not mention lift was broken. i Had to carry 2 suitcases upstairs. not a great start. The room was clean and had everytthing we needed and overlooked pool.
The main problem was the groups of young men around the pool during the day - swearing, drinking, dominating pool area and then coming in at all hours of morning, shouting, jumping in pool. Felt embarrased to be British with these drunken yobs. I saw security guard once but no one of authority to sort them out. We spent most of day out - went to a beach short walk away near sea view hotel, which was lovely- the one across the road is rocky.
food okay but all-inclusive option is awful! snacks was half sandwich in cling film and rich tea biscuits. or tiny containers of ice-cream. Juice is watered down and my son hated it. Wine okay though! food ok in hotel, nothing special. staff not friendly in dining room but they probably had to deal with lots of these groups of ignorant pigs who have no idea how to behave in social situations, especially when children are around.
the other thing is there was no stuff for kids - one evening of entertainment, a magic show - brill. there is stuff going on outside hotel, amusement park etc but you end up paying out again.

hi just got back from the sol post my hubbie and 3 sons , i must say it was better than expected for the price , the food was really good for all inclusive , good selection and lovely clean reasteraunt , the shower broke in our room on the first day and was fixed within an hour ,the maids came in the room 3 times in 5 days to clean room and give us fresh towels ,a lot off young people in hotel but you are in ibiza so its to be expected , a water taxi will take you over to the harbour just down the road. local chinese next door lovely meal i would recommend , bars and shops literally on your doorstep great location , beach 5 mins walk away .the only downside i could find in this hotel is the pool area could be cleaner and they need new subeds as a lot are broken and uncomfortable noyt many sunshades so its hard to get out of the sun when round the pool , but dont listen to the bad reviews , go and enjoy you get what you pay for i found this a bargain one more thing the guys outside the hotel selling glasses and all over ibiza are actually selling drugs its so obvious so please stay clear of them

Room Tip: ask for a pool veiw , in hotel not apatments much nicer

Myself and 4 other female friends stayed here for our 10 night girls holiday, and after reading the reviews i was really quite nervous about what it would be like. For £499 for 10 nights i simply could barely fault the place. On arrival in the early hours of the morning, there was a rather rude receptionist on the desk, and i thought, "oh here we go". But he turned out to be the only negative, and that was the only night we saw him. The room was very clean, lots of storage for clothes and toiletries etc, and i must say, i found the beds really comfortable! Air con in the rooms too, and a small balcony area. The maid did a great job each day on cleaning the rooms and re-stocking towels etc. The pool area was fab! Lovely palm trees dotted around, little children's pools and a park, and two big pools. The sunbeds weren't too comfortable but with the over 30 or so inflatable lilo's available for anyone to use, this was easily sorted :) Aqua aerobics was available pretty much every day, and the pool areas were cleaned thoroughly every night. We stayed all inclusive, and having drinks on tap was definitely the right choice. You could have Fanta lemon/orange, coke, sprite, and also any alcohol you wanted after 10am through to 11pm. The food reviews said the food was repetitive and bland....NOT the case! I was very happy with the food every day and was all self service! For breakfast there was a choice of cereals, cakes, toast and jams, cooked breakfast, and also cold meats, and fruit. For lunch and dinner there was a full choice of salad, then things like cold rice mixed with veg, and coleslaw etc, then a soup of the day, then things such as, pasta and sauces, beef or pork, chicken nuggets, noodles, haddock or a fish of the day, chips, pizza, lasagne, mashed potato, vegetables, bread rolls, chicken breasts etc, then a dessert buffet, of ice creams, jelly, cream cakes, biscuits, fruit selection including watermelon and peaches etc. And if you didnt like the food (which didnt happen to us), then theres a supermarket about 10 steps across from the hotel. The night entertainment was okay, its not amazing, but fine to watch with a nice drink before heading elsewhere. The reception staff (other than the first guy we saw) were very friendly and helpful, although could maybe do with knowing a little more english, but it was fine :) overall we had a really good stay in this hotel, and i would definitely come back and stay here again. Personally, i dont know what all the bad reviews are about? In 10 nights, we encountered 0 problems and all had a lovely stay here! Take my word for it, for value, you will not be disappointed :)

Room Tip: We stayed in the apartments, and not the rooms, so maybe choose to stay in one of the apartments for...

I booked a last minute holiday with my two sons aged 3 and 6, my husband couldn't come due to work arrangements. After reading the reviews i wasn't sure if made a good decision choosing Sol Post (locals also call it Costa Sur), but we gave it a go and i'm so happy i wasn't put off by bad reviews!!!
-It's definately the best value for money in the area as for the price of all inclusive here you can only get half/full board elsewhere.
-location is perfect: close to shops and bars, brand new aquapark in one of the hotels (20 minutes walk or 4 minutes by bus, 10 Euros per person for 4 hours of fun), lovely beaches (like Cala Bassa)
-great food: best we ever tasted in any hotel of that size
-two big swimmng pools with kids pools within and another little paddling pool for toddlers, life guard between 10a.m.-6p.m.
-playground for children
-rooms were just right size and clean
-always enough sunbeds

Also to reply to some comments i read in previous reviews:
-somebody said pool area is never cleaned: as i was there with 2 young children and they were up very early, we've seen staff memebers cleaning pool area every morning.
-entertainement: in 7 days we've been there we've seen parrot show, magician, dancers and karaoke
-we had nothing stolen and didnt hear of anybody else complaining about it, i spoke to the manager as he asked us how was our holiday when we were leaving and he told me they just installed cctv system for the safety of the customers and their belongings.
-Ibiza is a party island, so dont expect it being very quiet at night,saying that people coming back from parties only woke me up once in a week time, so not so bad as others say.

Room Tip: If you dont want to be disturbed in the night - ask for end wing room, if you are with children ask...

Just returned from a weeks holiday at this resort with my husband, daughter, son-in-law and two grandsons. It is a basic and tired hotel but we had a great holiday. The food was good, rooms clean and most of the staff very nice ( apart from receptionists). It is not a family hotel as there was entertainment only two nights whilst we were there so you had to venture out. It was full of groups of young people who were coming in at all hours during the night and making a lot of noise, also the language was more suited to an all male environment.

Room Tip: All rooms are clean and basic and the rooms with poolside views are subject to the noisy nightclub r...
