To be honest I expected more from the pool , a very small indoor pool and not warm enough for the current winter temperature. No rules apply and nobody supervises the pool area. The area was full of children jumping in and out of the...pool and no food restrictions in the area. On a positive note our Lunch at the Prickly pear restaurant was divine and although the service was slow because they had a shortage of staff the waitress did all her best to see that All is ok. A one time experience..More

Nice food, lovely ambience! Prices are good! I particularly enjoyed the dessert, sticky toffee pudding, simply scrumptious! Asked for some alterations with the menus, and the staff and kitchen have always been accommodating! Definitely I recommend this restaurant!

We had lunch here on our last day at the Solana. The food was amazing, my only gripe was that the olives on the pizza hadn’t been de-stoned. The service was a little slow as the person taking orders was also running the bar, while...we were there a couple of people left due to the wait.More
