Hotel spotless clean, pool area kept well. Getting a sunbed in the morning was a bit of a pain, you need to be down there by about 8 o'clock to keep a space, even though the bed s are locked up till 9 o clock. Some people I seen where getting beds at 9 o clock and not coming down till 3.30.
Food was excellent, very good choice and something for every one.
We went a/I there was a variety of ice creams available, good variety of drinks.
Staff were very polite and staff in the restaurant worked very hard to ensure the tables are cleaned etc.
Entertainment was nt the best, but they tried hard, there was nt enough seats in the entertainment area. Good location, lovely beach. Yes I would go back

Spent first two weeks in July at Sol, kids ages 7 and 11. Very family friendly oriented hotel, really aimed at the younger kids - 6 and younger. My kids didnt bother with the hotel Flintstones Kids Club, they were happy to be in the pool all day with friends they made. If you are a couple looking for a quiet place this is not for you, but for us this was perfect. The location as said before is fantastic, and just out the gate by the pool leads onto a lovely path leading up to Puerto del Carmen on the right and if you take a left to a small shopping centre with plenty of restaurants. We stayed B&B which was great as we enjoyed eating out every evening in various restaurants along the strip and in Puerto del Carmen so cant comment on the meals. Though I did see the AL by the pool with very small plastic beer glasses, so that definitely would not do me! Beer is expensive in the pool bar €3.60 a pint and €2.00 outside in any other bar/restaurant or thereabouts. We upgraded to a seaview room which was great, no sun on balcony but that didnt bother me as only time I was in the room during the day was to get some shade. All staff I found extremely helpful and very friendly. One day at pool bar someone picked up my lighter and I had no matches. I asked a bar woman for matches and she walked around the hotel lobby, restaurant and bar area trying to find some for me, (Esperanza I think), so that was above and beyond and very much appreciated.
Sunbeds: well what can you expect in peak season with a hotel this size. There are never going to be enough sunbeds. But the beach is beautiful, spotlessly clean, cleaned every morning, there is even a guy employed to blow away sand on the wall along the beach! The pool area is kept spotlessly clean also. Room spotlessly clean, beds made everyday and if you need towels changed just leave them on the floor.
All in all we had a fantastic holiday, really enjoyed it and have already rebooked for next year. Thank you Sol Lanzarote !

Stayed here foe 1 week all inclusive good value for money very clean needs more entertainment for adults also needs to sort the beds by the pools out ppl have hotel towels and leave them on the beds all day so there is a problem with finding beds they should get removed after a few hours max but other than that good value for money

Dear Teresa H,

Thank you very much for sharing with us your comments. We are making at the moment some changes in our entertainment department; nonetheless I will pass them your opinion to be taken into account.
It is difficult for us to remove any towel from any sunbed as they are considered as personal property. We make big efforts to inform all guests and have consideration for everybody.

We really hope you had a great time and hope to have you back again.

Best Regards,
Guest Experience Manager

Good: location excellent right next to the super market and restuarants (no need to get all-inclusive), fine swimming pool for kids with some activities, right next to beach which was awesome, nice sea view rooms, spacious rooms liked the color contrast. variety breakfast (didnt go all-inclusive).
Bad: wait for checkin, unless asked not much support from hotel staff, DEFINITELY not 4star no coffee machine/kettle, very small fridge, basic amenities, AC stinks, beds could have been better (hard twin beds for couples!?!? ).
If your looking just for a great location based hotel then this is the place. All in all we had a ok stay with a lovely beach :-)

Room Tip: dont go for all-inclusive you are 20m away from a host of restaurants. get a sea view room. Dont get...

Have just returned from a 2 week stay here, arrived about noon, not all rooms ready but staff efficient and friendly. Hotel is a short taxi ride from airport, no need to book transfers. All rooms spacious and light, we had a lovely sea view. Rooms well equipped with plenty of storage and a safe, which is FOC. Hotel and ground are well kept, maids in room everyday. Food was good, lots of choice, staff pleasant, all in all it is good hotel, there are few annoying things such as the sunbeds, which are chained up every night, to get one in a decent spot you have to be round the pool by 0845 to get your spot and if you want an umbrella be there from 0800, becomes a bit of a chore after a week or so, railings on balconies are loose and could do with securing, larger balconies like ours would benefit from a couple more chairs, music is played round pool but its not too loud and is varied, you get sick of hearing the 'sun care advisor' everyday, the same script for 14 days is very tiresome, if she sold any stock I'd be amazed I could have ad-libbed it better myself. The bar staff always pleasant, didn't have to wait long, not very knowledgeable on mixing cocktails though, none of them seem to know how to make them or what goes in them, unfortunate, wine served in the restaurant is poor as well, the white wine is very acidic.
Pool area is nice, kids loved the pool and the 'walk on water' mat was always popular, games room would benefit from air con and some seating in there would be nice, beach is nice, not crowded at all, you can walk down towards Costs Teguise and if you're into aviation you watch the planes
landing and taking off. With a little fine tuning this could be a great hotel, I'm not sure it's a four star but its definitely a very good three star.

Dear Maria b,


Firstly, we would like to thank you for your comments, which we will take as good opportunities to improve our quality and service.

We are really sorry to know that your stay with us did not live up to your expectations. I will pass your comments onto the departments involved, especially housekeeping as what you are describing in your review is not our cleanliness standard.

About the cockroaches, due to the sub-tropical weather conditions, they are very difficult to control completely, even when we are working with one of the leader pest control companies, and we have periodical health and safety checks.

Again, thank you for your review.

Kind regards,
Guest Experience Manager
