“Pool and pool staff make it.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2012

Apartment was ok for a last minute booking (3b), but no English tv, and only 1 bedroom had air con. Dale very helpful all the way through booking. Llocation was very good, 1 minute to pool and bar, 1 minute to other shops and snack places, around 7 minutes level walk to strip. Taxis are less than 5 euros to and from the Old town, which is amazing value. Best of all was pool and bar area. I had read here about sue, dinah and carol, but they really are very good. Always seem genuinely pleased to help you with anything. There's always something to do around the bar, but sue isn't pushy, if you just want to sit and sunbathe you will not get hassled into anything. All in all, great holiday made better by Sue and girls. Food was good at poolside also!

We came as a family and we all enjoyed it. Evening entertainment from bbqs to quiz nights to karaoke with Graham, very friendly guy.! Sue and Carol are so friendly too. Pool is great the kids loved it. Its such a relaxing place and everyone seems to be so friendly. Highly reccomended!

Yet again another great family holiday at Solar. Sue is an absolute star (is there nothing she can't help with?), and please don't tell Carol she looks like peggy from the queen vic! lol....

Good BBQ and quiz night. Clean pool (Kids never out of it!) and lovely to come back for a nightcap at the bar in the evenings. Kids loved the toasties.

Prices down at the bar this year too, which was an unexpected bonus. As always a good bunch of people staying at this small family oriented complex (nice mix of owners and renters). Everyone friendly as always :)

Mini market opposite is very handy, plus the tiny brazillian bar beside it. Owner of the minimarket even bought us a drink and I can't say enough about the friendliness of the locals in there. Sure there's a language barrier but smiles are universal.

Hope to be back next year. Time to start putting that change in the Holiday tin!

myself and 4 friends stayed here in june for a week. the apartment was great and the complex ran by sue was brilliant! lovely pool area loved having the bar there for drinks before we went to the strip! sue couldnt have been more helpful, booking us taxis, arranging trips, and even sorting out getting us back in our apartment when we were locked out (dale wasnt the most helpful considering it was his apartment!) don't miss the bbq and quiz night, great fun!! and a great group of people there too!!! would definately go back!!!

I've been coming here for more than 10 years. Sue took over the complex from Dale (who was complete disaster) and she has really revitalised everything. Nothing is too much trouble and she makes a point of getting to know all of the guests. Look out for the bbq night; its fantastic value and great craic! The quiz night is also super - even if I do always seem to get the wooden spoon (must be something to do with the bar measures as I never seem to be sober!). Can't wait to return again next year.

Room Tip: T2 apartments are very roomy - get one if you can.

It was our 3rd year to visit these apartments, Sue and the staff are amazing couldn't do enough for us, the children particularly enjoyed the sausage/mash and onion gravy night followed by a quiz. i would highly recomment these apts to families or couples, spotlessly clean
