“2nd visit - and certainly won't be our last”
Reviewed May 20, 2014

We spent Easter at the Sol Timor - our 2nd time there. Once again, very welcoming staff and a very pleasant stay. We had a 2 bedroom sea view apartment - absolutely gorgeous views (even though it rained for 2 days of our stay!) Couldn't fault the hotel or staff at all - some of the furniture was basic and a little old in the apartment, but nothing to complain about as it was all spotlessly clean and the maid did a wonderful job. Excellent value - we will definitely be returning! Thank you

stayed here for 7 days in april , overall position was excellent . we had a studio and it was a real let down .there was no kettle in the kitchen and when we inquired why we were told that they were for hire.!! a kitchen without a kettle...? come on..!! also the kitchen utensils were very sparse and the beds were like concrete.!! other than that we had a great time , weather was brilliant which did make up for the poor accommodation .

Just back from a week in sol timor, as is written in most other reviews, rooms could do with a little tlc in certain areas, but as a 3star they are more than adequate for a self catering holiday, staff friendly&helpful, location fantastic, beach little more that 20yards away with loads of restaurants along the promenade, while at front of hotel a good selection of bars and restaurants, would highly recommend Kate's kitchen for a well priced and tasty 3course meal, and at top of hill you have a massive lidl store if your self catering for all your shopping needs. One dislike I had with sol was the fact you have to hire pool sun beds @€2 a time, you also have to hire the electric kettle which again I find totally unfair as this is a first I've ever come across this in all the holidays I've ever been on. Still for all the minuses I think the pluses are more, an I would highly recommend Sol Timor for your holiday, I don't think you'll be too disappointed. Ps weather was fantastic too.

We arrived at the hotel after a very quick transfer of about 15/20 mins . There was 3adults and three kids we stayed in a two bedroom room ,the hotel is located right at the sea so only roll out of bed and your on the sand. The hotel was clean and the staff were very friendly . Night entertainment in the hotel was good but more for older generation that did not want to go out . Very close to the 24 hour square and lots of pubs and resturants in the area all and all a very good base for sea sand food and drink

Just returned from a long weekend away with the girls, staying at Sol Timor for 4 nights. We booked 2 bed apartments which easily slept 4 adults one twin room, one double and then a sofa bed if you want. Apartments are basic, but clean and all we wanted from them was somewhere to sleep, and get ready.
We spent the daytime around the pool which is a good size and right on the beach too giving you options on where to soak up the sun. A great supermarket on site too to get all you need.

Location is fab, 5-10min walk down to the marina with lots of bars and restaurants, although their are plenty of nice places also on the beach. In the opposite direction a nice walk along the beach will take you more into Torremolinos so this really is an ideal location.

Note: Sun beds around the pool are 2euros per day, was really surprised never had to pay in a hotel before, was not a problem as only needed to pay for myself and only for 4 days, but if you are a family of 4 staying for a week its worth a note, remembering that's an extra charge.

Would def recommend this hotel if you want a great base to stay, location and value for money.

Very basic and rather small apartments but an excellent location right on the seafront. If you are in the block closest to the road its rather noisy at night. However the apartments are very clean and the pool and grounds are beautiful.

Second time staying in the sol Timor, excellent location. Very close to the beach and local pubs and restaurants. Went with a bunch if friends and found the staff very relaxed and friendly, would also be a great location for a family holiday. Rooms are basic enough but clean and there's a good supermarket and restaurant in the hotel. Looking forward to returning next year.
