We spent four nights at the Praia Sol and found it to be a real gem tucked away in a very convenient location. The hotel is simple and stylish; all of the staff are incredibly friendly and easy going. The pool is clean and private; the layout throughout the grounds of this small hotel is very well thought-out to offer a small sense of community whilst maintaining privacy. The room was fantastic - a basic hairdryer, air con, towels changed daily - the beds were comfy and we slept soundly in the blacked out, cool, quiet room. The bar is always open serving snacks too - great toasties and quick bites. The only thing we could complain about was breakfast, which was fine, but the same every day. A five minute walk out the front door leads you straight to the *beautiful* well-kept, long sandy beach and a ten minute walk out the back door takes you to the marina, full of yachts and some fantastic restaurants - we highly recommend the Lamparo Trattoria in one of the corners of the marina where the food and the service was exemplary (and if you don't like sport, I was thankful it was the *only* restaurant in the whole marina that wasn't showing the football within the restaurant one evening!). There is a real mix around the marina - karaoke bars, nice restaurants, cheap restaurants, Ibiza style bars, an English pub - there really is something for everyone and every type of food and drink. Explore the back streets and find supermarkets dotted about for cheaper bottles of water etc. There are some lovely shops in the town and if you find the corner of the marina where all the activity booking booths are you can parasail, sail, dive, rent a scooter... it has it all. You'll have covered everything and had more than enough time to rest too in this wonderful climate in just a week. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend the hotel or its location to couples, families and older travelers.
