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 family holiday
All the family loved this hotel. It's very clean all over , rooms , pool , communal areas.... We stayed during the Easter break and the hotel was at full capacity which made meal times a bit manic. To be fair to the hotel they do give guidance to off peak times if you wish to avoid the rush. We all loved the daytime entertainment by the pool. My husband loved the water polo , I loved the zumba & aqua aerobics and the kids loved their fun & games too. Staff here are very friendly and we will be definitely returning ..... 1 disappointed rather than complaint.... Sun beds are very very scarce during busy periods!!! Every bed is booked by a covered towel by 9am. It's a bit of a spoiler , in particular if you are under pressure to keep watch of your kids in the water. This is a common issue in many holidays hotels , I don't know the answer... , more beds perhaps?????More

The Sol is located in Matagorda - about a 10 minute (6 euro) ride in a taxi from Puerto Del Carmen and I had read the reviews on Tripadvisor and contacted the hotel prior to departure as I was concerned because of some of the negative reviews but I didn't need to worry. We stayed (husband, myself and 10 year old daughter) for 10 days over Easter holidays. We stayed on a Bed and Breakfast basis, in a sea-view room (2237) and all had a great time. Breakfast was good with fresh fruit, omelettes made to order, pancakes etc. in abundance. Our room was spacious, cleaned daily and with the most fantastic view out over the beach and sea - it is definitely worth paying the extra for a sea view. Great promenade outside back gate for walking and cycling and the beach is ideal for walkers. We hired bikes for 3 days and particularly enjoyed the cycle into the Old Town in Puerto Del Carmen. The heated swimming pool is small and got very crowded while we were there but we spent most of our time in 1.5m deep pool. Yes it was cold initially but once you got into the water it was lovely. Our daughter went to the kid's club on 3 occasions and enjoyed it, the evening entertainment is the same as in other hotels that have stayed in so only went 3 times. Yes the lounge is small but everyone got a seat eventually. We ate twice in Maritoni's on main strip in Puerto del Carmen twice - fabulous Sirloin steak with all the trimmings for 8.65. We don't usually return to the same hotel but would seriously consider going back here.More

Visited here in Dec 2014 with a large group of family, Kids we really entertained with games around the pool and in the kids club. Rooms were a little small but ample for your needs. I am looking to return this year and bring the whole family!!More

Good family fun with a little caution
Friendly hotel- clean and spacious- lovely grounds as usual Great entertainment for the kids in the evening but not as good shows as last year and no bingo round the pool each day like the children loved last year Had to pay this year for wifi which didn't work very well- not one code per room but per iPad/ iphone etc so pricey for not great reception and 18 euros for renting safety deposit box for a week and for hiring the towels- didn't last year so this was an added expense... Buffet style food ok but last day both my kids had terrible fevers and upset stomachs and high temperatures- either the buffet or the water in the pool as also one got conjunctivitis and both had terrible colds Fight for the sun beds this year was hard It was great but not as good value as last year overall and several people there were poorly for some reason- high temperatures, feeling sick, dizzy, terrible colds and took to their beds for two days... Water in the pool???? Was odd that previous nights paella was served at breakfast buffet (yuck!) - be careful what you choose Boiled eggs .... Heated for several hours- green insideMore
