Yes we went with and is tours and we stayed in this hotel it was good three star but what made it for s was that my wife left her expensive boots behind and on returning to benidorm she rang the hotel and yes they found her boots and returns obviously we paid the postage no problem but thanks to all the staff for that but we had a good time in the hotel. Would like to mention as well that we went with Gandia tours...so if in any doubt this hotel and staff so so nice xxxxx thank you

just returned back from a weeks stay at the villasol and can honestly say we had a lovely time , I will start with a couple of minor faults and I mean only minor, firstly the entrance to the hotel is down a very uneven slope which can be very difficult if you have walking difficulty or disabled and also some of the furniture in the hotel could do to be replaced its starting to look old and shabby , and a lick of paint around the whole of the building would make it look a lot better ,well the good points about the villasol are the location you are near all the bars , beach , shops , marina bus stops outside the hotel and takes you around the coast and small villages and cost very little , the villasol is very clean and the staff are always very helpful , we checked in and got upgraded to a sea view room it was amazing looking out to a lovely view each day , the hotel is a typical Spanish 3 star but well worth the money , the food was very good not cold at all as some reviews have mentioned we stayed half board and breakfast and evening meals were always plentiful and we never had a bad meal and my husband is a very picky eater but even he enjoyed the food ,we found the hotel was full of Spanish oap's but they never bothered us yes they can be alittle inconsiderate at times but so can other people too , the pool area is very small it was ok for us but I guess it can get alittle overcrowded in high season , all in all we had a great time and would definetly go back to the vilasol so keep up the good work all you wonderful staff and hope to see you again .

Room Tip: we had room 411 full view of the sea and the coast and it was excellent

We spent a week at the villasol over the xmas period 21 to 28 december on a B&B basis. The negatives first....the cooked breakfasts were always cold so we reverted to a continental breakfast as they were cold anyway and the microwave was very ineffective. This hotel was predominantly spanish and although we don't mind this, we found some of them quite rude! An example of this is when we try to exit the lift they try get in before you have exited, one suspect had his foot run over by my 20 kg suitcase but thats his fault as he should have waited until we cleared the lift. Some spanish also barged passed us on the odd occasion but we visit spain a lot and kind of expect it anyway. If you fancy a lie in then forget it as hotel doors are heard slamming from about 7:30 am and it resonates throughout the corridors. On positive side ... The hotel was ver clean, extremely obliging and polite staff. Rooms were clean and beds were comfortable. We were offered room 611 (top floor sea view) which was a bonus. Some english tv channels itv3 etc and some news channels. Bar prices are very reasonable too €1.75 for a bottle of san miguel and €1.95 for a wine and soda. As we visit all the expat bars in the area we didn't experience the evening meal but we saw that a special xmas buffet was been offered at €14.95 pp.

Overall the hotel was accommodating and we would visit again.

Room Tip: Room 611 top floor best sea view and a great sun trap if you like sitting out on a daytime.

Hotel rooms very clean staff helpful. Sea view from side room good. But corridor from lift to room a bit dark and dingy, not very good if too many people want to use the pool area and sunbath as limited space and beds .maybe because it was the second week in october but the food was not the best. Not akways very warm. Would I stay again not really better hotels in the area

Hotel is dated but very clean. Staff did not have a lot of English. Breakfast was plentiful and good. Pool is very small with limited sun loungers but ok for this time of the year, would not recommend for the summer unless you planned to spend all your days at the beautiful beach.

One problem we had was the bedroom floors where mopped with bleach (at home its illegal to use bleach in a public area) and my husband did not realise and walked across the floor luckily wearing socks which had to be thrown in the bin. As a food hygiene/health and safety training I would recommend the hotel sources a different product as someone could burn their feet especially children.

Would consider this hotel again at this time of the year.

This is our second visit to Villasol and we enjoyed it even more than the first. The hard-working staff are so helpful and pleasant and very quickly recognise the guests and make them feel at home. We were given the duplex, much to our delight, and so our holiday was perfect.
The weather was fabulous and the 69 steps to the prom makes for easy access to the sea. The bus to Malaga/Torremolinos stops straight outside the door and the Mijas/Fuengarola/Marbella bus is across the road. NB - make sure you wave violently at the buses or they sail straight on past!!!
The cafe/bar has friendly staff and makes good coffee! The food is plentiful and mostly Spanish-inspired. The full English for breakfast (complete with crisp bacon if you want it!) suited my husband and I loved the fresh fruit and a variety of cereals and breads.
The only reason we haven't given the hotel a 5 is that the outside area is small and the lounge area would benefit from refurbishing - but, honestly, with all that lovely resort on your doorstep who wants to hang around the hotel?
We shall be back next year and are looking forward to it already. Keep up the good work Villasol!!

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view, they try their best to help.

Just had a week's holiday at the Villasol this October and can heartily recommend it. It is practically on the beach, with no road to cross to the sea. We had a lovely sea view and at night the Marina was lit up, looking beautiful. We went half board and I think that was the best thing we could have done because, although the food is very good, with very fresh salad every day, the hot dishes were a bit samey and, because it is kept warm for a long time over the mealtimes, not always ideal. Lots of lovely little restaurants just along the sea front, so the best of both worlds. I really don't know how they do it for the money. They have a dedicated activities lady who will take you for a walk round the town and does bingo etc, and they have free entertainment every night, (although mainly in Spanish while we were there) . The main bus stop for all the trips is just across the road, so no long trecks to find the bus, and the bus to Malaga stops right outside the hotel. Staff were helpful. The hotel is clean and the towels changed regularly. The pool is well looked after and quite a sun trap. The TV had 4 English channels which was handy when we were having a lazy day or in the evening if we didn't fancy going out. The only extra things I would have liked would have been a fridge and tea making facilities, as we couldn't keep our water cold or make a hot drink in the evenings. The only negative with the hotel is that they turn off the hot and the cold drinks machines in the evening so you have to pay for your drink with your evening meal. They don't do it at breakfast, so it seems a bit silly to do it at all. Apart from that, a very nice hotel.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 309 which seemed a good location for us, away from the lifts and with a sea view.
