This is really a 'so and so'. Overall I would call it a non-style, non-descript place of 3 local stars. One could wonder if it had really been planned or simply set up? The pool is in the center, between apartment blocks and restaurant, and comparatively boring. The apartment blocks are okay, the apartments are even spacious and well-maintained, spotlessly clean.So is the compound. The apartments have nice balconies, relatively large, with power plugs (which is not always the case). The bathroom was fitted with bath tub and bidet. But before you 'thumb up' this, it is lousily fitted with the absolute basic w.r.t. dishes. No water kettle, no coffee maker, nada. And not to mention: no Internet, neither by wire nor by WiFi; simply not covered. WiFi is available for free at the reception and restaurant area, but unsuitable for the number of guests, and so - whenever there are plenty of guests - everyone has to fiddle with connection drops. Not only us, the people at the neighbouring tables gave likewise comments. Bar: You'd expect a nice bar, and you get something like an attendance hall or waiting room. With limited stocking of drinks. Like: Anis? No have. Bitter lemon? No have. Lawns and flowers: They have a good gardener, on the other hand, offering nice, green lawns, nice, well kept flowers and trees abundant. Beach: Walk a few hundered meters, and you arrive at a wide, clean, beach with many dunes. Parking: You may park your car underground, for money, or outside - and outside is usually crammed, so you have to park it pretty far away. Food: another so and so: No daily themes, not much of a change from day to day, nothing spectacular, but everything okay to good. Great choice of bakery for breakfast, and good choice of breads for dinner, though. Potential exists through various staff behind the counter, preparing fresh eggs of your choice, fry fish, meat, vegetables. And also this potential unused, by making them do plain chore cooking. All drinks are extra for dinner, though at reasonable prices. As I stated further up: the whole place looks like there was no unifying concept. When I note 'average' as the value, of course I don't know their rates. I can only calculate and compare what we paid for elsewhere, respectively to the travel company, and what we get elsewhere. Overall, very difficult to judge, depends on the customer. Friendliness and cleanliness could be 5 star; while bar, wellness, restaurant (aside from the one were meals are served), pool, Internet could even reach the 'poor' 2 star.
We stayed 3 nights at this hotel at our 3 weeks drive thru different location in Spain. Excellence beach in a nice area. Friendly staff, good entertainment at night.Good breakfast and dinner at the buffet restaurant.
We choose to stay in these apartments because they were slightly cheaper than other solutions (but not cheap!) and they are part of the Melia group. The choice was not great in the end. We had three major problems: 1) The kitchen was infested by ants. I have to say we were originally offered another apartment on the top floor, which looked newer but was really hot, so we decided to take the ground floor apartment that was fresher and that we could cope with ants better than a very hot apartment; 2) At least half of the staff (if not more) does not speak english. How is this possible, given that this is supposed to be part of Melia group? 3) Cleanliness is really poor. The apartment had hair on the floor pretty much everywhere when we arrived, including pubic hair in the bathroom. That is certainly because the cleaning ladies use the broom instead of hoovering the place. Also, some of them spend a little more time cleaning, but some others are really there for 5 minutes only and don't bother cleaning everywhere. I also want to mention that the wifi only works in the reception area but it was so slow that we could barely use it. Some pros: the pool is nice, the access to the beach is also very easy and direct.
Beautiful place with very nice atmosphere. Close to the most beautiful beach I've ever seen. Tasty breakfasts. Good drinks in the pool bar. I recommend for Singles and Families too. Rooms clean. Every day cleaning service!
It took some finding, when we arrived we asked for a low level room and we were given a poolside room near reception (good). The beach a short walk away was amazing 2/3 miles of golden sands. Terrific weather but the wind was cold out of sun, sunbeds and cafe were available
Clean, functional apartments but a little dated. Excellent position, close to beach with beautiful mature gardens and a lovely pool area. Professional hard working staff who smile. A pleasant place for a holiday.
In this Sol accommodation you will get a complete apartment. Sitting area, bedroom and a balcony. There is something strange with the wifi here. Depending on the place where you are you have either a fine connection, or no connection at all. If this is essential book with the request: "near the reception please". In the reception area and around the pool (and in the apartments around the pool) wifi works fine, but is pretty slow every now and then. In other areas there is no signal at all available. The location is good, just a short walk to the magnificent beach. In all: well worth it's money. But – sorry about that - there is still a down point to mention: no, the breakfast is reasonable. No problems here. Because of the location we chose for half board and that is not a good choice. If you observe the cook during her "live cooking" it is absolutely clear that she has no Michelin-aspirations. I seldom saw good meat and fish so badly handled (cut and cooked) on a grillplate as in this restaurant. Evening meal-standards are certainly (very) low.
Good bet with young kids (I have three). Great pool and near the beach although I imagine it could get crowded in peak season. Food was not very good though, but there are plenty of good places to eat nearby. Rooms were spacious however the beds were not the most comfortable. Had a room on the ground floor by the pool which was excellent for lounging in the private balcony and while keeping an eye on the kids in the pool.
All other reviews were right on the money; a nice, clean apartment complex close to an amazing beach. Just one major complaint; NO free wifi, but only available for € 6 per day / € 25 per week. A big nono imo. Also, the wifi's reach is limited to the reception and pool area and thus NOT available in one's apartment (except perhaps those close to reception and pool). All in all a nice place, which could do with an update (it's age is beginning to show) and all area free wifi :-)
We were the only English people there and really enjoyed the friendliness of the staff and other guests. The rooms and all areas of the hotel were very clean and spacious. The dining area was very noisy at all times unfortunately. Some sound absorbing material needs to be installed.
