My sister and I took my brother (who is cerebrally palsied and uses a wheelchair) to Mar-Y-Sol for the 3rd time in June 2013.
It is absolutely fantastic. Sis and I are not getting any younger and staff could not have been more helpful - from Rueben on reception (who slips easily and admirably into at least 4 languages!) to the restaurant staff (who will bring you anything if you can't carry it) to cleaners (regular clean linen and towels and scrupulously clean apartments and public areas) to sports and entertainment staff and therapy centre (we all had a back massage by the very able and professional Sara)
You can hire ANYTHING from Lero hire centre to help with disabilities, from pool floats to electric scooters to special beds and even care help. Your choice of shower chair comes free with the booking, There is a pick up service from the airport and free shuttle down to the beach daily.
The food is fantastic - full international cuisine(we even got a normally burgers and chips bro. to eat vegetables and salad!) but they also had special theme nights(Asian and Spanish) and also chefs on hand who cooked specials in front of you at breakfast and evening meal.Every salad, fruit veg and cereal you could wish for, yoghurts, juices, deserts and more than 8 choices of main in the evening (even the odd burger and pizza if you just refuse to be adventurous!)
There are loads of lifts (all working when we were there!) lots of little patios with sunbeds at various levels, wide accessible corridors, 3 fab pools with hoists. a gym, a sports hall, outdoor chess, snooker and table tennis, a wifi room and free library - i could have stayed a month easily!! In fact, prices were so reasonable, my partner and I are going again for a week later in the year. It is great value for disabled people who have to also pay for a carer place - 1/2 the price of others we have visited - and twice the value.
Although Mar-Y-Sol is billed as a hotel - (we have been going since 1998) we regard it as a perfect package with all the amenities needed for disabled people and their families. They also welcome non-disabled people and it is an excellent deal for older people as everything is so accessible and staff are so friendly and helpful.
55 stars!!!!! well done Mar-Y-Sol
