This is a review of the apartments and not the bungalows (the hotel has 53 bungalows and near 100 apartments in the main building). The main building is built in a "V" shape with the balconies on the inside of the "V".

Nice pool areas with lots af activities by the side. Suitable for any age. Nice and service minded staff. Since we were celebrating a 50th birthday it was a very nice and unexpected gesture of the hotel when they delivered a bottle of cava and sweets with a greeting card to the room.

Make sure to visit the outside bar. Bartender Carlos is especially friendly and he has a secret drink with kraken rum and fresh ginger. Super nice place for chilling! All the drinks I tried are really good. Nice that they have various ice for various drinks. Also, gin is somewhat of a house special so make sure to try some...

Stayed here for what must be the 5 time. We had a 1 bedroom apartment on 2nd floor. Because we were here in November the sun didn't make it onto our balcony so would request a higher floor next time. Since we were last here, the hotel has put in a additional pool on what used to be tennis courts....

Second time in less than a year that we visited the Sol Barbacan (Bungalow) so I suppose that says a lot. Like Playa del Ingles immensely for its very relaxed atmosphere and also enjoy the Sol Barbacan. The Bungalows are perhaps looking a bit tired and could do with being modernised. Having said that, they are clean and have everything...
