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.

NEVER A 4 STAR, NEEDS TO BE DOWNGRADED
Pleasant and helpful reception on check in. Room advertised as sea or hill view was overgrown palm trees blocking all light.Even after maid had been in, the bath had sand in from previous day. By 9am not a sunbed to be had even tho rules say no reserving.Evening entertainment area was very small hence never a seat to be had and only a dozen or so seats in a huge reception area. Good choice of food in restaurant but finding a table with full set of cutlery etc. was difficult. On the last night I found a piece of copper wire in the rice and when i informed the waitress my plate and the wire were snatched away and I was told to get some more food.No apology or explanation was offered. We booked Sol Lanzarote because we had stayed at the Sol in Ibiza, which truly is 4 star but sadly this hotel cannot compare. Get your act together Lanzarote or downgrade because you certainly do not match other 4 star Sol hotelsMore

well pleased with the sol lanzarote hotel,very clean rooms,has all the facilities you require,clean bedding and towels every day,only one complaint is the balcony was overshadowed by a large palm tree, with no sun! we went self-catering,so we can,t comment on the food,the hotel his situated next to the beach,and promenade, all the staff in the hotel pleasent and helpfull, the shoping centre in matagorda,which is aprox 2 hundred metres away from the hotel, has plenty of pubs and restaurants,but our favourite was the auld triangle pub,run by irish family dave and marie,plus ,( half manc,half french,) the lovely jannette! served great food, plus a excellent carvary,very nice people !!!!More

Good but not brilliant
Hotel spotlessly clean and rooms huge with 2 double beds and massive bathroom and well decorated. Nice views from the big balcony. Hotel has quite big slopes so not easy to get about if you have health/disability issues. Entertainment on an evening was good with plenty of variety. Drink was good although if you wanted branded beer/ lager you had to pay for it, also all inclusive finished at 11.30. Food was ok, nothing wrong with it but plain and boring and very samey. Not much at all for the kids to do and if weather is poor not much for the adults to do. The games room is poor with most of the machines and equipment broken. When it came to checking out we couldn't keep our room on as the hotel was full. We were told we could use showers so booked for that only to find it was in the gym showers, which was neither private or clean and with no clean towels supplied. The hotel is situated right on the beach and right near the airport so 10 mins transfer time. The staff at the hotel are great and really friendly especially Abel on reception who was lovely always. Rooms cleaned every day to high standard and fresh towels. All in all a good hotel just not brilliant. While you are there walk to the airport which is out the back of the hotel and 10 minutes walk to the left . You can stand under the planes as they come in to land about 20 feet above you, Kids loved it.More

I was disappointed to read some of the reviews but not necessarily surprised. We, fortunately, had a fabulous holiday but we did encounter other people who appeared dissatisfied with the services. From the moment we got there people were extremely friendly. The catering staff were always stopping to coo at my daughter who is one and she completely loved it. At one point she actually went off with one of the staff! The food was lovely but at times repetitive and the desserts were disappointing but plenty of fresh fruit and salads and fish and the barbeque evening was delicious. The promenade walk was lovely into Puerto del Carmen, its about 8km I believe into the old town but very pleasant. A map would be beneficial but was unavailable in the hotel or in the tourist information centre! The seaview room we had requested was beautiful and quiet and very spacious. The facilities in the room were excellent. The only downfall was the cost of the wifi. The baby pool was not at all freezing and I suppose it helped that our predicted temp was 16 degrees but it was at least 23 all week with no rain! Hoping to book again for next year with my family as it was ideal for a young family.More
