This beachfront hotel has 3 pools and a jam-packed activity programme for of all ages.
The Sol Lanzarote is practically on top of Matagorda’s golden sands. It’s about a 5-minute drive from Puerto del Carmen – or you can walk it in half an hour – and the hotel’s 3 pools all have sea views.
Rooms are decked out in cream and mint, and all of them have a balcony or terrace. Plus there are Flintstones-themed apartments for families – they come with animal-print bedding and chunky, carved furniture.

Won't be back
We arrived 15th March and stayed for a week, very average hotel as soon as we arrived the check In area looked lovely but the receptionist was quite rude and I felt it was very rushed, I explained we were here celebrating a relatives birthday in which she completely ignored, disappointing! Our room was so bad! our view was the other side of the hotel it absolutely ruined it for us as we were really hoping for a sea view as we requested this around 6 months in advance, we were self catering and it really seemed like they treated the all inclusive guests better. The walls in the room are paper thin I could literally hear next doors conversation, the sofa bed was the worst I have ever slept on. My only positive about this hotel has to be that the beach is directly in front! I wouldn't ever return to this hotel and I do not recommend!More

about to go back for 6th visit
Our favourite hotel. Getting ready to return for our 6th visit on 2nd April. Kids (11 and 10 super excited. Mum and Dad looking forward to relaxing while the boys make friends, play in pool, at beach and in the great arcade. Ignore the poor reviews, if you have older children and like a beach/pool holiday with walks along the promenade then this hotel is for you.More

Good hotel right on the beach
Stayed there mid-March for a week having noticed it before on previous visits. The hotel in parts was in need of a refurb but to be fair this work was being started the day or so before we left. Rooms were spacious and clean with regular laundry. We stayed half-board and would describe the food as average to good both morning and night - dining areas were not too crowded. Staff were polite and helpful at reception and in pool areas. I decided to pay extra for an ocean view room (16 euro per night) and it was well worth it as the views were fantastic - room 2436 to be precise. Small pool areas led to garden areas with usual deckchairs and a very nice touch - swinging hammocks pitched among the palm trees. The location was spot on being close to the local centre in Matagorda and its promenade(100m) also Puerto del Carmen (5km). To get to the latter other than walking take a 1.4euro bus from the promenade or 6euro taxi from the hotel and visit the old town or further on to Puerto Calero and its marina. All in all we enjoyed our holiday and love Lanzarote - everything going for it with cooling breezes, warm sunshine and plenty of lively entertainment at night nearby. Couple of final points - the Matagorda centre nearby is in need of a bit of a clean up eg. repaint, cracked tiles etc but this is not something the hotel can change. The hotel charges per day for wifi - perhaps it should be free?More

Average hotel on the beach.
Pretty average hotel with the beach only metres from the entrance. However I found that this hotel is quite a far distance from the best parts of Puerto Del Carmen. It was also very expensive when I booked. Over 500 euro for 7 nights in March. The accommodation was average, reasonably large but with the clothes cupboard in the living room and the television in the bedroom which I personally don't like but most people are fine with. Bathroom was fine with shower/bath and toilet and bidet. Bedroom was basic and mattress could have been more comfortable but I've seen much worse in hotels. The room was cleaned each day and I was satisfied with the level of cleanliness. I only had breakfast in the hotel but I found it excellent. Range of cereals, breads, cooked foods and fruit and yoghourts were available. Also omelets cooked every morning while you wait. Tea, coffee and juice were also available. I found having to pay for a safe in the room is bad form after spending so much on the room. Also WiFi is 30 euro a week. In this day and age WiFi should be standard and included in the room cost as everyone has electronic devices to connect. Also for 30 euro you can only connect 1 device at a time. Staff in the hotel were always friendly and had excellent English. The hotel is about 3 miles outside the centre of Puerto Del Carmen which is a bit of pain. Also you are very close to the airport and planes fly quite low almost directly overhead several times a day.More
Just returned from our 7 day holiday at the Sol Lanzarote Hotel a bottle of sparkling wine was delivered to the room for my birthday which was a nice touch. Only a 10 minute transfer from the airport to the hotel but could be cheaper to get a taxi once there than pay for a shuttle bus because it is quite a long walk with your luggage to the pick up point to find your coach and the number that you are given is not on the actual coach but on the actual post where the shuttle is parked but we found this confusing because the numbers are on the coaches as well and this was not explained to us. The room was spacious and cleaned every day. We had a lovely sea view. Check-in was quick, reception staff friendly and helpful but maids and restaurant staff miserable. We had a safety deposit box for 18 euros but there was no information in the rooms re. excursions we had to ask at the reception desk and they were in a drawer. We were half board breakfast was good, a lot of choice evening meal was ok but not much choice very much the same thing therefore we ate out a couple of nights. Plenty of bars, cafes and pubs close by and in Puerto del Carmen you could get a full English breakfast with toast, tea or coffee for as little as 1.99 euros. Drinks were cheap 1.50 euros for a large beer and 4 euros for spiced captain morgan and coke. Good location hotel right on the beach. 5 euros for a taxi into Puerto del Carmen from the hotel or a 30-40 minute walk. The weather was not too good whilst we were there a couple of good days when we first arrived sunny in the day but otherwise cloudy and cold at night would recommend you take a coat for the evenings, even in the day could be cold with the wind apparently they have had a bad winter and the weather at the moment is the worst that they have had for a long time. Excursions: Rancho Texas Zoo well worth a visit 20 euros for adults, sorry do not know for children, this included 2 shows in the price birds of prey show and sea lion show which were good and not too far from the hotel and there is also a waterpark in the grounds for the children which is included in the price good day out. We also went into Puerto Calero for the submarine trip which cost 55 euros each for adults, 32 euros for children but the transport was free, we got a taxi which cost about 12 euros, which we found better because otherwise you only have 1 hour on the submarine and no time to look around the port with designer shops and a market and cafes/restaurants to eat and drink. Negatives: after our arrival we went downstairs to the bar for a drink, there were 2 bars we went to go to the quieter bar and there was a sign on it saying all-inclusive bar only, which was very annoying so we had to wait at the other bar which was busy to be served, which made us feel second class and this holiday was not a cheap holiday for us half board with a room with a sea view. We usually hire a motorbike or buggy for 3 days to explore but there was not this facility in Lanzarote you could only hire a car. The pool area was nice with 3 pools but we did not use this facility due to the ever changing weather. You could hear the noise of the aeroplanes taking off and landing at the airport but this was not an issue at night or with the windows shut. Our recommendation would be self-catering because the food and drink is cheap on the island and definitely upgrade to a high floor with a room with a sea view.More
