“Value for money”
Reviewed 27 July 2012

Went to acurio sol we stayed at sol 1 which was quieter than sol 2 which we preferred because we had a small baby, steps wasn't very good for the pram but we managed.. The rooms were clean and adequate, the staff are really friendly.. Would recommend the all you can eat BBQ for 10 euros brilliant food and quiz night after it well worth it.. The main strip is a quick 5 min walk away where there is everything you need and want.. Would recommend renting the fan out out as rooms do not have air con so rooms are very hot on the night do hardly slept.. Would defo go back.. Very clean.. Lovely friendly staff.. And value for money..

We had all the essentials needed in our room, fridge freezer,cooker cooking utensils. The only thing we needed to hire was a iron and board. We received out deposit back on departure. Request to stay at Aquario Sol 2 it is the better of the two we upgraded to this for 24 euros which was well worth it. Beware of getting sunburnt as the winds can be very misleading... only a few minutes from main strip. Bar and Restaurant on site where they do offers on evening meals the staff that work in the restaurant are very friendly and were always cleaning, there is a Spar supermarket up the road. The one thing that made me not rate this a 5 star was the pool was frezzing and was salt water which i cannot stand. But overall great place would go again.

Room Tip: Stay in the pool view Aquario Sol 2.

Be careful which Acuario Sol you book. 1 is small block of apartments with small pool not suitable for children with all apartments accessed down a steep set of steps. 2 is the bigger block with children's pool, restaurant and bar facility. Exceptionally hot and humid weather necessitated air con which was not available. Main supermarket, shops and nightlifeand 10 min walk from apartments but little shop for essentials around corner.

Don't usually write reviews but seeing as Trip advisor helped me out choosing accommodation, Its only right that I return the favour, so consider this my "good deed!".

Stayed in a single room apartment (one bedroom with two single beds), self-catering for 7 days (25/06/2012 - 02/07/2012). The apartments are approximately a 10 minute cab journey from the airport (if that) and cost around 10 euros. At first glance the apartments are very clean, bright and look good (although there are bins directly outside!) The Acuario Sol is actually split into two different complex with AS1 being the bigger complex with two pools. Residents can use both pools in each site so its really not a big deal (they are 100 metres apart).

The apartments themselves are for a "garden view" but that was just a wall of trees outside which is ok. The entire complex is very clean. Inside the apartments themselves were two sofa's, bathroom (not en suite), bedroom with two single beds and an adjoining kitchen to the living room. The kitchen did NOT have an oven or microwave, just a two ring hob. The apartment also comes with a TV. Rooms are of a decent size and towels were changed twice within that week. The apartment was cleaned and beds made only once. There was also a small balcony which is attached to the front of the room which has a small garden table and chairs on there.

the complex is VERY quiet and peaceful which was perfect for couples and families who just want a chilled out peaceful time. The pool at AS2 needed to be cleaned asap! the location was excellent however. 5 minutes away from the local Spar supermarket (for all your amenities), 5 minutes away from the main strip and beach!

Additional Info:
- it is a 24 euro deposit for the safe key of which you get 12 back.
- Staff are very friendly and helpful
- Top restaurants for me were: Da Vinci and cafe ola (great sea views)

Stayed here from the 21st to the 28th with my girlfriend, arrived late Thursday night (around 11pm) at the hotel, not the best greeting from the chap who was clearly waiting for us, checked us in quick, legged it over to the Acuario Sol II where we were, pointed out our room then left, lovely! Got inside the room very clean, big sofa to lie on, clean kitchen full of utensils, huge fridge, toaster, kettle, cutlery etc ... Large bedroom with 2 single beds but we just put them together no problem, and a clean bathroom but the shower water temperature was quite iffy, wouldn't stay hot or cold. The apartments are a 5-10 minute walk from the strip, and are very quiet at night. The pool is quite small, but very deep for a good dip, and the pool bar/restaurant serves great food, recommend the club sandwhich ... Amazing! The only issue with these apartments are the stairs are at the front of the building with the balconies (facing the pool) and anybody could walk on to them, found that strange but no issue as it was quiet when we were there anyway! And no air-con ... unable to sleep at night being so hot there (30 plus degrees every day!)

Room Tip: Stay in Acuario Sol II and ask for a pool view, nice view with a lovely sea breeze, we stayed in roo...

We stayed here at Acuario sol 2 from 20th till 27th of may check in was very simple our room was easy to find as acuario 2 is just up the small hill. we got a safe which was 12 euro deposit an 12 euro for the key! the room was very clean it had a toaster an kettle pots pans ect.. but no microwave but can hire them and also hire BBQ's from reception! there are plenty of shops near by to get the shopping in but we found eating out to be very cheap we got a cooked breakfast for 1 euro 90!!! the beach is very close about 5 mins walk and is stunning!!! the hotel bar is also cheap! all in all its a good base for your holiday and is very safe!

Room Tip: ask for a sea or pool view
