This place is centred on Matagorda’s gold-dust sands, about half an hour’s walk from Puerto del Carmen. The 3 pools overlook the beach, and are framed by palm-dotted sun terraces. The hotel itself curves around the pool area in a horseshoe shape. Rooms are decked out in cream and mint, and all of them have a balcony or terrace. Flintstones-theme apartments are on offer, too – they come with animal-print bedding and chunky, carved furniture. And when it comes to food, there’s a buffet restaurant and a poolside snack bar.

Great hotel, wonderful holiday.
We have just for back from a stay at this hotel which far exceeded our best expectations. Having read reviews online, and seen a few negatives, I did have some reservations, but none had any real substance. I suspect just to ensure it doesn't get overbooked for their returns! Firstly it was such excellent value for money, that any minor negatives have to be balanced against what the hotel DO provide for the money. We had a fantastic large, clean room, far from the hubbub, but by no means a "walk" to get anywhere and really worth it for the lovely sea views. There are some " steep " paths, which are great as they make buggy and suitcase access easier, and with a multitude of options to access every block and room there are always alternative lifts and stairs. With the fabulous food on the buffet, with a great choice, not "haute cuisine" but it would be ridiculous to expect that in a hotel with very reasonably priced catering for so many people and having to cover a wide range of tastes. The chefs work early hard, as do the waiting staff and deserve credit for running such a welcoming and efficient operation. The armband ID system made everything easy, the staff were all warm, welcoming and helpful, and the bonuses of the location beside a lovely not overcrowded beach, and proximity to the airport ( a few non intrusive take offs and landings of no issue, especially when taking into account the total absence of road traffic noise). This hotel is a definite must return for us.The beds are on the very firm side, but we acclimatised! and an extra pillow or two would be a bonus, but in fairness, we never got round to asking, and I suspect if we had taken the time to ask they would be offered. A real bonus is the cycle track and bike hire, safe for novice kids and adults alike, and my kids loved the ride past the airport. All in all thank you Sol. See you next year!More

1 week all inclusive
Stayed 1 week all inclusive. This is third time been to matagorda and the resort is lovely windy but no rain and hot enough for me, The hotel on a positive note was clean and room spacious the food I thought was lovely plenty of choices of cooked and fresh food. Disappointing however was each afternoon in the snack bar 4 days in a row I had to ask for white wine as it was never in the iced container!! Self service I don't think so !! Always had to wait a while too and was the same lady 4 days in a row this was the only member of staff I felt was not very welcoming !! Never enough plastic glasses either! Entertainment was ok but children's disco goes on until 9.30ish and allowed to run around with no parents intervening!! Not impressed!! The is the only hotel I know that just accepts kids running around all night. A seat was never available in the evening more chairs and tables needed and you could not relax with no chair and screaming kids. I am a mother and grandmother and fully aware of how children are on holiday but this behaviour spoils it for a lot of people, many people complaining . It was very busy when we arrived and remained busy but we always managed to find seat in dining area. Would defo return to matagorda again but not sure would book in the sol again. More

Rude staff and ants in room - do not book - not 4 stars!
Not the most enthrilling of stays... Reception team need more training too. We stayed for 1 week in a sea view room as there were 4 of us and went self catering, a good job too as we made friends with some other guests who complained the food was mainly cold. We procured our food and kept it in the kitchen area, only to discover a few days later it was full of ants so we had to throw everything away. The cleaning staff were good as they kept the pool area clean. I cannot say the same for the gardeners as the hotel complex has many palm trees and one day the tree surgeon decided to cut off the dead branches using a chain saw mid-morning. Quite a few branches fell into the pool and the pool maintainer decided to have a full blown argument in fron of all the holiday makers - not professional. To top it all off, our departure date was a late flight, we couldn't keep the room so had to use an'courtesy' room. We booked ourselves in and were second to last. By the time we got to the room, it had been used several times, dirty wet towels in the bath and had only been there 5 -10 minutes before the next family came knocking on the door to use it. We told them to wait for a moment and a very rude receptionist called 'Polo' came and told us to get out. We have never been so angry by being treated in this way. Also, who these days charges you for using wifi? We had to pay 30€ for 1 week. DisgracefulMore
