Reviewed 12 October 2013

I had read the reviews some were good some were bad so I started to get worried as we had not stayed at this hot before.We had a fantastic week the weather was brilliant all week, the reception staff were fairly helpful,all the areas of the hotel were always clean.When we first arrived our rooms were not quite ready but it was not a problem as we were all inclusive we went and sat outside and had a drink.Ours rooms were very spacious and cleaned every day. Entertainment staff were excellent Erika and Renato,so friendly by the end of the week they knew our names,entertainment by the pool every day and on the night in the big room.The location was ideal just across the road from the marina,its a lovely walk along the front.The food is excellent a great selection for every single meal.
There is a slight hill and the towels in the rooms aren't very big those are the only 2 miner issues but they aren't really a problem. We had a lovely week and would definitely stay there again.

Hotel palmasol- Not long got back from one of the best holidays, location was lovely, weather was beautiful. Entertainment from both animation and professional were really good. Especially the animation team. Always involving you in games/activities. And putting on some good nights. Really friendly and always there when needed. Can't fault anything they did. Will be back next year for definite.

The best thing about this hotel was the door out. The rooms were very basic, no cooler/fridge/mini bar, no kettle and no sockets to put your own in without unplugging the television, which when on the English speaking channels had very poor reception.
The cleaning of the rooms left much to be desired, the glass top of the dressing table left with cup marks on.
The food was mainly cold or Luke warm, grilled chicken was found to be red inside and there were always containers left empty or with odd bits in them. The desserts were cold, even the hot ones, and when they replaced the trays they scraped the remnants into a heap on the top.
The all inclusive (full of booze) crowd were giving the rest of us British a bad name, (for once I wished was German) but well done the male animation team member who put them in there place.
But this is the trouble when you go down market.

Spent a week from 30th Sept. to 7th Oct. All inclusive, in this hotel. I read quite a few reviews about it before we booked, each review was different, but we thought we would give it a go. The hotel on a whole was not too bad, but the food was an absolute disgrace. It did not matter whether you were early or late for any meal it was always stone cold.As for cold meats for salads all I ever saw was Salami, only one day did they have cold ham. The staff were friendly don't have a clue why they would want to work for this hotel, as they are run off their feet. The female manageress was not interested in her guests, the only thing she was interested in was ordering the bar staff to make her coffee while paying guests were waiting to be served, then she would sit in the patio area smoking, that was the only time she was seen. On the subject of smoking, in the patio area there was a total of two ashtrays for all guests, and let me say the majority of whom smoked, myself and my partner included. I would not recomend this hotel to anyone, So BE WARNED.

the hotel is just over from marina and a 2 min walk to the beach we had a pool view which we could see the sea and the top of the beautiful marina very lucky as we didn't request any area we stayed on the 3rd floor which was perfect to sit on balcony stayed here for a week in September9th to 16th. a very friendly hotel.maids in room everyday always cleaned to a good standard. hotel slightly dated.but tipical of a 3 star hotel in spain. food good always plenty to eat.as we went in September it we busy but not overly, so after reading reviews about having to wait to get in restaurant, we never had that issue.the only draw back was if you want a sunbed for the day you do have to get up at 7.30 and que along with other guests and wait for security to open pool area to get one. but as the day went on you could get one easy..also if you want a parasol there are only 6 for the whole hotel which is not practical.they do have a lovely garden area with plenty of shade and sunny areas and loungers.lovely evening walks around the marina looking and watching the world go by. with a cold beer.recommend hotel for all ages.entertainment team a bit cheesy but worked hard from 10 am till midnight.all in all we were happy with what we got for week

Room Tip: pool area, room 3rd floor upwards great views.

Stayed here the last week in September and had a lovely week. Unfortunately we were told that due to a glitch in the computer we would have to stay at the Villasol for the first night, however the hotel paid for taxis there and back the following day. As compensation they also upgraded us to all inclusive free of charge as we had booked half board. The lady on reception spoke excellent English so I'm not sure who the previous reviewer was referring to. Our rooms were cleaned daily to a high standard and the bedding changed. Of course we would all like free internet access and 24 hour all inclusive but not all hotels provide these and this was evident when we booked the holiday. All in all we had a very enjoyable stay at this hotel and we would definitely go back again.
