“Excellent hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014

We stayed there for 10 days, 23rd June -04 July.
The hotel was very clean, check in was easy and the staff at the hotel very helpful.
We went self catering, but rarely used the room for cooking etc, eating out was very reasonable and the hotel food was of very good standard.
Our room was spacious, and cleaned daily.
Pool was of a good size and sun beds readily available.
The bar staff were always friendly especially Oscar !!!!!!!!
Our transfer on departure was not till 4.30 Pm we were able to keep our room until 2pm. Our cases were put away safely and the hotel offered showering facilities if required.
Overall and excellent hotel and one that I would definitely recommend and will use again.
Thank you to all the staff at the Sol Barbacan

I would like to thank you for writing a review about your stay in Sol Barbacan. Thank you for mentioning the clean hotel, the restaurant and the pool. We always try to leave the room longer for our clients who have the flight back later in the day, if occupancy permits. We have also, as you said, shower facilities for our clients after the check out. I hope we see you again someday soon in Sol Barbacan.
Kind Regards,
Pedro Castro

Firstly I couldn't fault anything. The reception staff were friendly & knowledgable. We were booked in promptly and shown to our bungalow. The bungalows were gorgeous and extremely spacious and comfortable. The grounds were very well looked after and beautiful. The pool areas were very clean and safe, not one cracked tile or broken sun bed. (With pool towels provided), the main pool has a life guard on all the time and the smaller pool near the bungalows gets checked on frequently. The cleaning staff did an amazing job of cleaning inside and outside on the terraces. I would definitely return.
The walk to the beach is approx 10mins (slightly down hill). The yumbo centre is 5 mins across the road. And the cas bar is approx 15mins walk.

This was our second time at Sol Barbacan Hotel. This time we went half board as the food in the restaurant last time was amazing, we would highly recommend choosing this option as it is great value and the food was lovely. We had a 2 bedroom bungalow this time which has a private roof terrace. The bungalow was spacious and nicely decorated. The staff were all very helpful and friendly. We will be back at Sol Barbacan for our next holiday to Gran Canaria.
