“Basic and dated but good value and comfortable”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

Hotel Sol is some way from the beaches of Benicarlo and on the main road through the town but don't let that put you off.

The welcome from the owner was warm and her insistence that we garage the car (free) was welcome even though I didn't see the need. She also recommended a couple of beaches depending on what we were looking for and despite the overcast sky I had a dip off the main town beach which was sandy and well populated. A welcome beer on the prom afterwards set us up for the evening.

The restaurant recommended was in the middle of a local housing complex and was the local social centre but the inside was clean and the food excellent and good value.

Although dated the room at the hotel was spotless with free wifi and a comfortable bed. We were woken in the early hours by noisy guests but that is hardly the fault of the hotel. Breakfast included home baked bread, cakes and home made jam. Very good value. The pool looked inviting but we had no time to try it out preferring the Med.

The hotel would have received an excellent from me had it not been for double charging of VAT (10%). Tax was supposed to have been included but was added and I didn't notice until well on our way. I have no way of knowing whether this was intentional or not. I hope not as the owner was most accommodating and anxious to make our stay as comfortable as possible and I would have been pleased to have paid the extra for garaging the car!

rooms are dated but comfortable. breakfast was lovely and lots of it, fresh baked bread, fruit tart, croissants, jam, eggs.......loads of it. The family are lovely and very welcoming. For the first 2 days we had the pool to ourselves. A welcome dip to the scorching sun. Beds were comfy and had plenty of cushions to prop you up. The window had electric shutters that blocked out the light and heat. The only gripe would be that only 1 person was allowed on the internet at a time per room. Not a great problem cos we were on holiday. If I found myself that way again I would definitely stay there. Although Benicarlo itself does not have much to offer. It was a great relaxing 3 days

I recently stayed just for a night so my comments are based on the hotel as a stop-off for the traveller.

The rooms were basic, which is fine and in line with the reasonable price. The owners were friendly and accommodating. Absolutely perfect for my needs on the journey. But my lasting impression as with others here was the cleanliness - the place was absolutely spotless.

From the point of view of the traveller it's perfectly placed right on the N340 and has ample parking. I'd definitely stay again.
