“Request sol 2”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

Was raging when i first arrived at sol 1 to check in because on the booking form i specifically stated i wanted to stay in sol 2 the main reason been we have 2 children and there is no kids pool in sol1. I found the receptionist on duty at the time not very helpful at all!! Sol 1 is very very quite and will admit the rooms are spotless the cleaning stay do a great job and are very friendly. On day 2 water started flowing down into our bathroom from the apartment above. The manager came straight away and we had to move apartments but he gave us an air conditioning unit free of charge for the week so couldn't really complain!! We had to bring the kids up to sol 2 to swim every morning its really not that far was just annoyed because you just couldn't pop back into your apartment if you forgot something. The kids basically had the pool to themselves all the time.. 2 kids pool lovely and clean. Over all very quite clean complex i would stay again if i was guaranteed sol 2!!

Room Tip: Sol 2 is better..bigger apartment complex and has 2 kids pools

Arrived at Acuario Sol finding it to be a small dark hotel Which was totally surounded by huge fir trees. 1 small pool which i can only describe as bath sized. It had no character at all. I was travelling for a lads holiday so didnt think where i was staying would matter. I dont normally speak up and complain either but this was the first time i did. Was told i could pay a small charge to upgrade to Acuario Sol 2 the next day but after demanding to speak to the manager was quickly upgraded straight away. This review is for Acuario Sol 1. As far as the staff at reception and Acuario Sol 2 which is depicted on main photo they were very helpful and freindly it was a great hotel great location etc etc. Acuario Sol 1 scores1 point. Acuario Sol 2 five points. Cheap to upgrade was about 25 quid extra for a week.

Room Tip: Book Acuario Sol 2 to avoid a disappointment after a 4 hour flight.

Just back from a week at these apartments. They are in a good location with many different routes down to the main strip (which I found out the first when I kept walking past after too much beer)!

The apartments were clean. Ours had two single beds in one room, a kitchen/sitting room and bathroom with bath/shower.

The kitchen was well equipped but we brought our own paper plates and cups etc.

My only problem was that there was no air conditioning.

There are two Spar shops close by and a smaller supermarket also.

The area was quite which was great for lazing by the pool and sleeping with window open at night.

The food in the apartments bar was not great though and we only ate there once. I had roast chicken but it definitely never saw a oven and rubbery and tough.

Would recommend and would stay again!

These apartments are comfy clean and in a good position..not far from the main strip of puerto del carmen and near shops and bars.There are 2 lots of apartments just down the road from each other.We stayed at the acuario 2 which we thought was better and nicer than the acuario 1 where the reception is.If you are driving there be aware it is difficult to find you are better getting a taxi.We fouind it quiet at night to get a good nights sleep and the pool was clean and lotsd of sun loungers.For a cheap apartment these are great...dont hesitate! We are fussy people and for a budget place could find little fault with it.

Room Tip: We preferred a room up on the first or second floor with a balcony rather than ground floor as there...

Just returned from a week at the sol 2,,,1st a couple of small gripes,,,,we also had a group of 5 young lads on a lower floor,,,crashing and banging till 5 am each day...lucky they went home before we did,,,,pool side beds defo need replacing and pool water is cold,,,need the hot sun to warm it up....and lastly Thomas Cook`s rep,,,or lack of him needs sorting out,,,,we went to reception on the last night to find out return flight details,,,transfer times and alike,,,,theres no info there,,,the girl on reception was great,,tried a couple of thomas cook tel. no`s but no answer even from there emergency number....we stopped a rep in the town and they got the times to us the next morn...
now the good,,,decent clean apartments,,2 decent receptionists,,,2 decent bar staff,,never a problem to get sunbeds (although quality is poor) and p.d.c is really cheap,,,breakfast costs between 1.80 euro to 2.25 euro,,,and a bear 1.50 euro

Room Tip: higher floor seems good,,,and try and get the sol 2,,,not the sol 1

Stayed in Acuario Sol 2 from 26th July to 9th August with my boyfriend after booking with Thomas Cook. When we arrived, we wer given our key and told to make our own way to Sol 2 which was up the road. Stayed in room 207. Room was very clean and spacious. 5 min walk from main strip and close to all amenities. The food in the bar/restaurant was by far the best in the area. The staff in the bar are lovely. Would recommend their pizza. Only negatives i have is that their is no security guard on site at night which caused us countless sleepless nights coz of unruly teenagers stayin in the apartments below us. Also reception is never open! When open, receptionist spoke little english so was hard to sort anythin. Would deffo stay hermd again if these problems got rectified. Would recommend the volcanic escape excursion. You get to go on a camel, was amazing.
