Check in staff are great, rooms clean, but basic. Fittings need looking at, some repairs needed doing in our room, but nothing major. Had a great view. Food, don't book the half board. The breakfast is great, but the evening meals we had were tasteless, and I tried a bit of everything. If you speak Spanish, you will have no problems, the hotel is mainly used by the Spanish equivalent of Saga, most of whom are friendly enough, but I got wittered at a few times by the guests, not sure why. Waiting staff is fantastic wit the the Spanish Oldies, not so much with us.
If you just want a bed for the night, it's great, I would not go there for a full holiday, we just had three nights.

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

Reviewed 29 December 2013

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.
