My husband and myself have just returned from a week in this lovely hotel. I cannot fault this place at all. It has everything you need for a lovely relaxing holiday. From the moment we stepped foot in this place until we left everything and everyone made our holiday. Reception staff were brilliant. The apartment/hotel we had was on the... More

My husband and I stayed at Sol Barbacan for 7 days in September, and to be honest can't fault this hotel at all. We were upgraded to a bungalow, which came as a pleasant surprise. The bungalow was spacious and always cleaned to a high standard. We loved the pools at the hotel, there were always plenty of sun loungers... More

We tried to drive from the airport to the hotel and google map took us up the road about a km away from the hotel! So do a bit of research on the map to the hotel.. We found the food choices good and enjoyed our stay: staff were friendly and the room was comfortable and good. The evening entertainment... More

We have just returned from a 7night holiday! Rooms are spacious, clean and has everything that you need! Staff are all friendly and polite! We sampled food however as a SC customer the food/drink was expensive compared to other pubs around the place. Excellent access to yumbo and beach. See you again

Very good. Had a fantastic vacation here. Our son (6 years old) was superhappy. Hotelservice in the bungalow was very good. Staff always friendly. Our rentalcar was parked at the private parking place for free.

Stayed here 11th-25th August and cannot fault the hotel at all. Yes the beds are a little hard and the shower screen could be wider but could not fault anything else. The rooms were cleaned everyday. There were no problem in getting sunbeds, even though there is plenty of room in the new pool for even more. Everyone was really... More

Travelled here as a family for 2 weeks in July 2016. Bungalow was beautiful and spacious, grounds well maintained, staff pleasant. However, the entertainment was very disappointing. New pool opened some time in the last year and all kids entertainment moved to here, with a lot of it water based. Pool is all one depth and not suitable for smaller... More

I've visited this hotel twice and both times were memorable. The staff were incredibly nice, the food was good and so was the accommodation. It's nicely situated on the Avenida de Tirajana at the Playa del Ingles and takes approx a 10-15 minutes drive to the beach.
