If you're English and under 60 years of age, do yourself a favor and stay away! This is the worst hotel we ever stayed at it (couples in early 50). The room is dirty and old. It felt like a prison cell. We stayed on the 1st floor facing the "court yard". The problem was window and shade couldn't be...

Very Spanish hotel, easy parking just behind the hotel in underground car park, 10 Euros per day. ( Ask for the underground car park). Caters mainly for elderly Spanish people who definitely enjoy themselves at the hotel, very little English spoken except for staff. Very helpful and friendly desk staff, if you ask then they will try to get you...

Recently back from a stay at Sol y Sombra in Benidorm, Spain. The reception staff were brilliant, nothing was too much trouble for them. With their help we were able to hire a mobility scooter and they were able to print out railway and bus timetables for us. The food was plentiful and varied. The domestic staff were very friendly...

In winter almost all the rooms were occupied. Most retired people. Bed and shower oké. Food was very good. For young people nothing to do. But the sea is also nearby.....Its a disaster to park your car.

We have just returned from a week at the Sol Y Sombra and just thought we should just say a few words to inform the English of what to expect. The Shuttle Bus dropped us of at midnight at a petrol station and just pointed down a side street. We had no idea of where we were going, so were...

Really not as bad as we expected, food was good, lots of choice we went full board as not much more than breakfast only. Nice and clean, loads of hot water. No views and noisy when they empty the bins. No smart tv to swop language into English which we have one to expect these days.

I have just returned from a long weekend at this hotel. The hotel itself was lovely and clean. Maid service every day who made our bed and cleaned the bathroom. Got fresh towels every day too. The hotel staff all seemed very friendly and helpful. The language barrier was a bit of a problem at times but got there in...
