I went to Barcelo Solymer the last week of May with 2 other girls (all in our early 20's) and it was one of the best trips I have had. The resort is definiatly for a younger crowd, if you're looking for a quite, calm resort you should probably look else where (do your research). We got a supersaver room, which had a leak in the ceiling of the washroom for the last 3 days but other then that everything else in the room was good. The staff were all very friendly (even when we weren't tipping).
Our return flight home was delayed the first time by 6 hours and then again for another 7 hours (which was through Sunwing), instead of having to wait in the airport, Barcelo let us stay check back into our room, no questions asked and free of charge for another night. We got water and beer delevered to the room every day and fresh room/beach towels everyday if we wanted.
One thing I would suggest is to bring a good amount of bug spray, at night our legs got bit alot. I would recommed this resort for anyone who is looking for a younger crowd and a fun time!
