Cannot rate this hotel and Bungalows highly enough, we really enjoyed our stay as a family with a baby under the age of 2. The large bungalow we had was a 2 bedroom and 2 bathroom with kitchen and living room with dining table and laundry room with outdoor terrace and large roof

Hi. We were here in summer and are thinking about booking for next summer. We saw that some of the rooms have been modernised, but can’t seem to find these on tui or jet 2 etc. Can you tell me how we would book these? Or, is it that we are needing a 2 bedroom apartment as it’s us and 2 kids? Are the modernised rooms only suitable for 2? Thanks in advance.
Dear ZKB_12, We have the superior rooms available for booking, you can always contact straight with the hotel for more information. Unfortunately this rooms have a maximum capacity of 2 persons so this will not be possible with 4 persons. We will be happy to assist you with your booking, you can send an email to sol(.)barbacan(@)melia(.)com. Leave out the () Kind regards,

Towel hire how much is it plus is there always some available? How long does it take to get to the beach and is it a decent walk for kids not too mAny main roads? Thank you
Dear Globetrot30, You will find pool towels in your room at your arrival which you can change once a day by the pool, completely free of charge. The walk to the beach is more or less a 20 min. walk with a very decent road, you can also always choose to go by taxi, which is around 3.50€ one way. Kind regards,
