Arrived mid day at Sol Pelicanos to find two receptionists checking in guests, so after a short wait we were told we would be staying next door at Sol Ocas. Check in next door was polite and quick and we were soon in our 9th floor room. We were at the back side of the hotel overlooking the indoor market, no balcony and the window only opened 6" for safety reasons. Now this isn't such a problem if yr a non smoker but my wife is, so we immediately called to see if we could be moved.
We were told it wouldn't be possible today and to call back the following day to check, however they did send maintenance man to remove the safety catch as long as we would sign a waiver. This was done and my wife was happy.
We did in fact remain in the same room as they are very clean having recently been refurbished, fixtures and fittings of the room and bathroom are to a good standard.
On the outside we found no problems getting a sunbed although this is out of school holidays so during peak periods i can imagine it being a problem. The pool at Sol Ocas was much quieter than next doors at Pelicanos although on two occasions we tried next door we never found a problem getting a sunbed. This pool is massive and a credit to the hotel however it didn't seem to open the swim up pool bar while we were there, not a major moan but it would have been nice.
The location of the hotel is great as its close enough to everything, a short 5 min walk and you're on the seafront. A 2min walk and you're in the heart of the entertainment. The indoor market is nextdoor, yet we weren't disturbed at all.
We stayed B&B only so i can comment on the breakfast alone which was great, good enough choice each morning of regular English along with freshly prepared omelette's.
The one gripe that could easily be remedied is the toast, always a queue at the one toaster. Come on Sol provide more toasters and you'll get top marks!!
Overall a good clean hotel and i would definitely stay there again.
