I am the type of person who spends ages when selecting an hotel and even though I researched others in the area and further afield I kept being drawn back to the sol don Pablo. I agree that the reception staff could be more friendly and informative. In addition we had to wait 1 hour and then a further hour for both rooms to be ready. We chose a triple with our 4 year old and got a fold up bed which was not ideal but as we was there for 5 days we didn't complain and she didn't even. Also I did email them ahead of our stay to see if anything could be done to make stay more special for other family we travelled with as there first holiday away and birthday but they did not respond to my request. This hotel ticks most of the boxes we had what I believe to be an older style room as no walk in shower but the room was immaculate and the cleaners great. We went full board and the food was perfect as caters for everyone, plentiful and great variety too the point that I was sick of the sight of food by the time we left and definitely came back a little heavier. Drinks are reasonably priced with a bottle of red for 9.50 euros water 2.00. Cocktails considerably more. Although you can access the other hotels we didn't as this had everything we needed great location, nice pools, good availability of entertainment day and night. Initially I was a bit skeptical as predominately attracts the maturer client but nothing to worry about as the clientele was very varied. Only downside was the pools was freezing could maybe be slightly heated but this did not prevent my daughter using teeth chattering an all. Location ideal as not far from the airport and right on the beach which is lovely but again freezing for this time of year and have to pay 9 euros for 2 sunbeds. All in all I would highly recommend this hotel too others as is up there with the best and would not disappoint.
