We have just returned from a fab two week stay at the Sol Barbacan. The hotel grounds and rooms are spotlessly clean. The hotel is situated about 20 minutes from the beach on foot, however the hotel grounds / pools / gardens are so lovely that we stayed on site most days. The staff at the hotel are very friendly...

This was our second visit to the Sol Barbacan and we were as pleased with our visit this time as we were the first. The hotel is in a great location with the Yumbo centre just a five minute walk away but with absolutely no noise from there at all. We were in a two bedroom bungalow which did us...

Nice hotel, freindly staff. Good location. Nice places to eat locally . Breakfast okay unless your looking for a cooked british type of meal. We ate out in the evenings and found plenty of places to go.We stayed in main block which was fine but the bungalows looked better. The adult pool area was good and kept clean.

Just back from a really nice stay at Sol Barbacan. We had a very spacious two bedroom bungalow with two bathrooms, a double room and a twin room with an extra bed for our third child. The patio was a great size. I probably should have asked for a fifth chair for outside but we just used one from inside....

Great friendly service throughout the hotel. Lola was extremely helpful at reception. Received a friendly welcome every morning from Nisa and Carmen in the restaurant. Rooms spotlessly clean. Breakfast was the same each morning but had a great choice so something for everyone. Pool areas very clean and it was not busy so you could always get a spot around...

Just got back from a nice holiday at Sol Barbacan. Here are the results of the jury. Rooms: We had an apartment in the hotel. We were not above the lounge or the restaurant so we have absolutely no remarks concerning the noise. It was very quiet in our room. It was clean and spacious enough for a family of...

Just got back from a 2 week stay at this hotel and we both agree the brochures and advertising undersell it, we are already thinking about when, not if, we will be going back.
