Just returned from 7nights in Acuario Sol 2. We booked last minute with Thomas cook and were a little unsure about the hotel being only a 2 star, but when we arrived - we were so glad what we got for our money. This hotel is rated a 2 star but it should be higher - we were given room 101 - ground floor with terrace - it was shaded by the trees all day (possibly the only down side) but we dont go on holiday to sit in the hotel room and bonus - cause we were situated away from the majority of the balcony rooms it was quieter!
Room - The room was spacious and more importantly very clean and well equipped kitchen for self catering (fridge/freezer, hobs, kettle, toaster, pots, plates, bowls, cutlery etc). Bathroom - good size, shower was powerful! We paid the extra for the safety deposit 24euros got 12back for deposit. It doesnt have air conditioning - i believe u can rent a fan but we didnt nother - kept the windows open on the latch, it was windy so nice cool breeze at night and bonus no mosquitos!
Maid service - room cleaned 5days out of 7, sheets and towels changed 3days out of 7.
Pool - both were cold as small and deep but nice to cool of in. Sunbeds - no problems with getting one only a few towels on first thing but by time we arrived at the pool ~11am got beds no probelm. They arent that comfy though and very few parasouls but there were plenty of shaded areas under the trees.
Pool bar - good for breakfasts, snacks, cocktails, alcohol and the Friday night BBQ (great food, all u can eat for only 12euros). Found soft drinks were expensive and unfortuntly it was a little quite than we hoped - almost every night we returned from restaurants it was closed as nobody there and that was mayby 1030pm ish. Luckily we had drink in the fridge.
Location - Short 1min walk up the street from Acuario Sol 1 (reception). It is only a short 5min walk to the strip and to the Spar, also small shop just around the corner beside acuario sol 1.
Last day - we had a late flight and with check out being at 12pm we had 6 hours to kill - tried to get a late check out but the rooms wernt available - we were able to lock our suitcases away in secure room and use the facilities including a room with shower and toilet by the pool - only problem was shower was cold and the room flooded with the shower. The light but didnt work - but later we realised we should have asked for a key for the elec and heated water at reception - silly us!
Loved this hotel and would def come back and recommend.
