We stayed at the Hotel Sol E Mar for three nights and it was amazing. The hotel location is second to none. So close to the old town and situated on the beach. Where the views from our balcony are breathtaking. All rooms are sea view and the hotel rooms are very modern inside, With plenty of room. Hotel staff are very friendly and helpful. The hotel complies with all Covid 19 measures. We look forward to staying at this Hotel again

We had stayed at this hotel on a number of occasions, but not for a few years. The location is spot on with fantastic beach view from all rooms(I would recommend a high floor), and close to the old town for evenings. My husband wanted to return here after trying other places in the town. What a good choice 👍. The hotel rooms have all been refurbished to a high standard and we were very impressed. Gone are the hard beds and small TVs. The shower was great and the addition of tea making facility was a real bonus. My husband celebrated a birthday while we were here, and the hotel left a bottle of champagne in our room on the day. The dining room layout has changed slightly, but could still do with being refurbished to the same standard as the rooms. Plenty of choice at breakfast, with excellent Covid measures in place.

Our room was above the tunnel which attracts late night revellers when the bars close.They tend to gather at the beach and are quite rowdy into the wee small hours. This occurred for the first two nights but when we complained we were given a room further away from the noise which solved the problem. In all other respects the hotel was fine apart from the food which was mediocre to say the least. There was a lack of choice and basically was the same every day. It was also cold and even the plates were not warmed. The dessert offer was very disappointing in particular. Staff were attentive, polite ,courteous but not really very friendly. All COVID regulations were strictly adhered to which was reassuring.

We were pleasantly surprised by this beach front hotel. Outside looks 70ies, but inside fully remodeled with modern bathrooms. Great breakfast. All rooms have balconies with great views of the beach and the sea. Elevator. No parking, but we found free parking not far away.

We stayed at this hotel for 2weeks. The room very nice,great shower good air con and nice comfortable beds. There was tea and coffee making facility. Take some tea bags and coffee with you. We asked at the bar for a small jug of milk,there’s a small fridge in the room. The hotel was spotlessly clean,and the room maid were very good. The view from the room was good. The whole of the staff were very helpful. We were on half board and had our meal in the upstairs dining room on the 1st night,that meal was very very poor. We then changed to having our meal at lunchtime around the terrace. The food and staff on the terrace were very good. We hired the sun beds each day,they need a shower and washing facilities when coming of the beach. The pool was closed because Covid,we did miss the pool even if it was inside. We really enjoyed our stay,just need to address the evening meal which is very poor. The hotel needs updating in certain areas especially the dining room that is well outdated especially the old carpet down one side. Stayed on 4th floor in the middle that was a nice room and we definitely stay again.
