We were looking forward to staying at Del Sol, based on reviews we read. Because we were travelling with our two small daughters, we booked a family suite, which looked really cool on the web site, with a separate room for the kids, their own separate beds, etc. When we arrived, we were informed that because of an "input error," we had not been given the family suite. We were instead given a two-room "kitchenette." Our kids ended up having to sleep together in a very uncomfortable pull-out couch. The staff couldn't have care less that we were inconvenienced. Overall, this hotel is generally an attempt to make a silk purse from a sow's ear, and it's only partially successful. It is difficult not to notice the general tackiness of the facilty (some might find it charming or funky), and the amenities are few. Free continental breakfast is served in a room the size of a closet, although there are tables outside to eat at. On a foggy, drizzly day, this doesn't work. The staff, while generally eager to please, are not particularly competent or professional. There was lots of noise from the street through the window, which we had to keep open to maintain a comfortable temperature (no AC). All in all, an experience I would not care to repeat.
