“Cheap and cheerful”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

Came back from a week stay in Sol 2. Lovely and quiet. we stayed over at the small pool which has about 10 sunbeds. Bigger pool at Sol 2. Apartment was dated but clean, beds terrible. Drinks very reasonable, 1.50 for local beer and 1 glass. Chinese restaurants great value. Weather was overcast in the morning but burned off in the afternoon. Visit the Tiny Bar, view of the seafront. Would go back.

Just returned after a week staying in Sol 2. Asked for a top floor apartment and that's what we got (313), bit dated,beds a bit hard and towels could do with renewing but overall well pleased. Also arrived at 10.30am and was able to check in immediately. Nice set up, very clean and quiet complex even though Ironman was on so thought the whole place would be busier. Bar on site closed early most night because not busy at the moment.Spar shop at the end of the road or another on the seafront about 500m away. Some lovely places to eat along the front, Chinese in Enjoy was superb as was food in Bollywood. Prices to eat out were very reasonable and drinks varied from 1.50 euro for a large beer to 6 euro for g&t. Plenty of nice bars with live music to choose from. Wifi 12 euro for the week on site or free in most bars, exchange rate was much better in resort, 1.18 (no commission) as opposed to 1.15 in UK. Weather wasn't great but that was just unfortunate, would definitely go to Puerto del Carmen again.

Room Tip: Top floor rooms get a sea view of sorts.

This was our 2nd stay as we enjoyed it so much the first time. Apartments were clean and had everything u needed. Beds were a bit hard and could do with air con. There were plenty of sunbeds so didn't have to get up early to get one. There is a lovely bar/restaurant on site which is very handy for good meals and there is happy hour from 5-7 at only 1.5 euros per pint. About 5 mins away there is the main strip with plenty of bars and restaurants. Outside to the right of the apartment down the rd there is a big spar where u can get everything u need.

Would definately return again a great 2 star great for all ages couples and families

I have just got back from a week away here with a friend. I would recommend this place there was corner suit sofa, kitchen was big with plenty of cooking equipment. The maids were friendly and cleaned 5 out of 7 days and towels were changed 3 times that week. The apartments and resort was really clean. The bar was great 2.95 euro for a full English breakfast and happy hour from 5 till 7. But don't worry the bar isn't open till early hours of the morning. The longest the bar stayed open when we were there was half eight which is great if you have little ones. There are plenty of restaurants within the area that are reasonably priced. Stay in Sol 2 as the pool is way better! I would book to stay here again.

Room Tip: Stay in Sol 2. Top floor or balcony for sun as the middle floor rarely got the sun!

I was surprised how spacious the apartment was.it was very clean and well laid out with a kitchen and living area and a separate bed room plus the separate shower and toilet.
there was ample cooking utencils and a two ring cooker plus toaster and kettle.
Towels were changed three times a week and bed linen once a week.
The appartments I stayed in is acuario sol 1
It is situated in a convienent position about five minutes from the beach and bars restaurants of the main street.

Room Tip: high floors away from the pool area

Just returned after a 7 day stay . Place is close to lots of bars and restaurants , clean but no bed change ? Reception hardly ever open and not secure to leave your cases there ! Nice enough to stay a bit out of the way for the harbour but a nice walk to better restaurants . Pool side bar clean and excellent staff , the pool itself very , very cold ! Yes would properly stay there again cheep and cheerful .

we stayed 14 night me hubby and our 3 children in acuario sol 2, apartments were very clean and big it was cleaned everyday apart from sunday, the pool was a little bit dirty needs a good clean also both pools was very cold! the pool bar was lovely when it was open it closed early most evenings about 6pm. the apartments are very close to the main strip and beach which was great as not to far to walk on a evening out with children. to be honest for a 2 star I cant really fault the place we had a lovely holiday and will stay there again hopefully next time the pool will be a bit cleaner. ps have a meal at woodleys on the main strip the food and service was 5 star
