Just back from a week at Don Paquito and this, our second visit, was even better than the first. Hard to find any fault with the place at all. The food does not offer a huge choice at the evening meal, but the 8 or so main courses offered are all very high quality. The breakfast spread is excellent.
The hotel was full, but still we had no problems finding a berth at at any time on the loungers by the pool. There was no laying down of the towels nonsense to put up with. Clientelle are from all over Europe and although mainly mature residents, there were a few younger couples as well.
The hotel is well situated 2 mins walk to the beach and all the usual touristy attractions, restaurants, pubs and junkery shops. There is little noise at night, particularly at the back of the hotel, so sleeping was a pleasure.
There is no entertainment in the hotel, but we found we could walk into the 3 Sol group hotels almost next door and take in the evening entertainment they were showing. Not bad at all in the Sol Don Pablo, although they know how to charge for the drinks.
Main meeting and socialising place for us was Capo's Bar opposite the side of the Hotel. A warm welcome was always received from proprietors Derek and Tony ( English guy, Spanish wife of many years). This I would say would be the main meeting place for those habitually venturing off the Hotel socialising front. After a bit of lubrication, it was great to see how everyone mixed and swapped stories of the days events.
Will have no hesitation recommending this hotel and we will be back
