My 50th Birthday at Sol Barbacan

Bungalow was lovely, cleaners fab and very friendly but bar staff were hit and miss, some friendly some a bit abrupt, food ok, we paid for buffet €15. Lots different nationalities, we were a bit disappointed people didn't seem to socialise, we like to meet new people and make friends. Beach 15min walk and the Yumbo centre with plenty of shops 5min walk from hotel. We were a mixed group ageing from 23 to 50 and there wasn't enough going on at night within 20 mins walking distance for us.

Sol Barbacan

Two bedroomed apartment was spacious with large balcony/outside area. Disappointing Xmas Gala meal, we had to wait for about a hour plus for our main course. (Cost was about 32 euros each adults & 17.50 per child) Went B & B only (except for Xmas Day), plenty of restaurants around hotel and near beach area. Had to move rooms half way through holiday as lounge bar was just below and noisy through Christmas period. Second two roomed apartment was less spacious. Staff were helpful and friendly, particularly the cleaning team. Rooms cleaned every day. Outside heated pool was pleasant and animation team were great. Activities available every day and Father Christmas visited on Christmas Day!

Fantastic apartment hotel

I had a 1 bed apartment which was nice, my sister stayed in 2 bed bungalow with a private roof terrace amazing value. The staff were friendly and couldn't do enough for us, the place is spotless and the lounge terrace bar serves great cocktails. Very close to the Yumbo centre with great bars and restaurants, short taxi ride to the beach and only 3 euros. My only suggestion was the evening buffet was a little limited compared to some hotels. I would definitely stay here again, thanks to all at Sol Barbacan

Great hotel

Our room wasn't ready when we arrived, but we went for lunch and that's all I could moan about. The hotel was great: clean well equipped and very smart. our room was on the 5th floor very quiet, it was cleaned every day. You do pay a bit more to stop here but it shows, we did look around and for £50 more you won't be disappointed.

The best thing about my stay was...

Quality of the hotel.

Fantastic hotel

Upon arrival, and throughout the stay, the staff were very helpful and friendly, the apartment is very well looked after and modern with a incredible amount of space for two people. We would highly recommend getting the breakfast option, there is every type of breakfast available with freshly cooked food brought out throughout the breakfast meal time. Rooms were cleaned and towels changed everyday, ignore the reviews that say this doesn't happen as that is untrue. Ideal location for restaurants, bars and shopping but is 1km from the beach. Would definitely recommend this hotel if travelling to Playa de Ingles.

Fantastic Bungalows

Had the most enjoyable stay at the Sol Barbican Hotel. Immediately upon arrival we were greeted by friendly staff in lovely surroundings. Our room was upgraded from an apartment to a bungalow, which turned out to be fantastic. The bungalow is highly recommended. Large and spacious two bedroom/bathroom. Lovely décor and furnishings and set in beautiful gardens. You also have a large private roof terrace to use, which is great if you like some additional privacy. The bungalows are quiet and well placed for the main amenities such as the yumbo centre. There are two pools to choose one, one large one by the main hotel and a smaller one by the bungalows. Both have a wonderful Jacuzzi near to the pool. The smaller pool tends to get a little crowded but families with young children tend to opt for the larger pool with the entertainment attached. So if you prefer adults only and quiet the smaller pool is the best option. Only minor criticism is that people reserve the sunbeds with towels and then disappear out for the day. This can be very frustrating, despite the hotel having a strict 'no reserving with towels' policy. It's just a shame this is not enforced! We stayed self catering and there was ample items in the kitchen to aid this choice. We did look at the half board buffet and i have to say it looked like good food. On my next visit i will definitely choose half board instead. All in all this is one of the best hotel choices i have made in Gran Canaria, and trust me i go there several times a year. I will defiantly be visiting the Sol Barbican again... in my opinion the best hotel in Playa del Ingles. The biggest criticism of this hotel is the appalling WiFi. It's important for me to have free WiFi access while abroad, yet the hotel WiFi is appalling and hardly ever works. I would have rated this hotel the full 5 stars if they had adequate WiFi,its ashamed they have not addressed this issue, despite several reviewers always compiling of this issue. Sort the WiFi out and this hotel is the best choice for Playa Del Ingles.

The best thing about my stay was...

The gardens are beautiful.
