We stayed here in July with our two children (5 und 7). I would highly recommend the bungalows. They have A/C and are modern, clean and spacious. You also get your own garden area and roof top terrace. The hotel grounds are not very big. Everything is within a short walking distance. The hotel is located on a busy stretch... More

We were there for 7 nights and absolutely loved it. The hotel was very clean and the bungalows are spacious. We were told the hotel was almost full but it was not noticeable. It was very quiet and relaxing but still a short walk to main restaurants and attractions. What we enjoyed the most was the pool area for families... More

LOCATION On a busy roundabout in central Playa del Ingles. The road with the hotel entrance is very busy, the other road not as much, but both have constant traffic in the day and evening and there is still plenty of traffic noise during the night. About 4/5 mins from the Yumbo Centre and 15/17 mins from Playa del Ingles... More

The hotel is very good for people coming with children but for adults it is not a good value for your money. The hotel is quite old, the rooms need a serious renovation. You get a bedroom, a living room and a small kitchen, which is good. But furniture is old and not in a good condition. Everything and everywhere... More

We stayed in a bungalow at the Sol Barbacan for a week in October half term. The room was outstanding. Plenty of space for the 5 of us and the roof terrace in addition to the main terrace was a fantastic treat! The main downside to our holiday was the weather! It was not what you would expect of Gran... More

This is a clean huge apartment hotel. Few swimming pool and bar restaurant ... Although the location is not near the seaside but also very convenient restaurant and supermarket nearby, and walk to seaside has only need 15 mins.

Spacious and quiet twobedroom bungalow, with two bathrooms. Loved the roof terrace on top, for catching some late afternoon sun. Excellent Breakfast buffet, but we ate out for the other meals. Grounds and swimming pools very nice. Good location for restaurants and bus services.

Lovely hotel in great location - pools were nice and staff were very friendly - private roof terrace on top of bungalow was great. Only used the pol bar once but food was good and beer prices what you'd expect - overall very good.
