Excellent location for shopping,resterants and bars.Also excellent for sunbathing on he beach.
No outdoor swimming pool.
We were pleased with the hotel, excellent location right on beach with very easy access. Sea view in all rooms. Staff very friendly, clean comfortable rooms. Lovely spacious bar and live music. Plenty of nice restaurants and shops nearby. There was a fridge in the room but alas no coffee maker.
The small televisions perched high on corner wall were really hard on the eyes.
I don't know how one can call the beach fantastic. It's just an ordinary city beach - crowded and dirty.It's impossible to sleep with open windows as drunk tourists shout all night. The rooms need renovation - it's not a 4 star hotel.
relaxed sunbathed shopped &eat meals out in very pleasant restaurants at very reasonable prices generally
Ideal position-right on beach, and in centre of town. Good balconeys overlooking beach. Breakfasts ok.
Don't eat in the sunset restarant. I ordered chicken in there. It was raw in the centre, with blood running out of it. I pointed it out to the waiter who shrugged his shoulders and asked if I was having dessert & coffee. Some chance! He threw the chicken straight in the bin, with no reference to the chef! I got the impression that it was an everyday occurrance!
The only advantage of this hotel is that it's right on the beach and the town is located right behind it.
- Old facility. - Rooms smelled like fish due to the water in the bathroom smelling like fish. - Airconditioning leaked. - Uncomfortable bed. - Basic room with no extras that was not worth 300 Euros a night.
Location was excellent, rooms clean and comfortable. The hotel in general is Tired and would benefit from some modernisation. But we enjoyed our stay
I arrived on the Friday afternoon, to a small but very pleasant hotel. I was on business and it was perfect for an overnight stay for myself. The staff were helpful and friendly. Very close to restaurants and bars, perfect for persons who want to be near the old town of Albuferia.
Great location on the beach and next to the old town.
Definately location. Room very clean,towels changed every day,linen twice in week. All rooms have beautiful sea view. Breakfast has improved and change of dining room staff made breakfast a pleasurable experience. Lift takes you down to beach and old town is 5mins walk from hotel
We have stayed at the sol e mar many times over last ten years and read many of the negative reviews. It is what it is. It was 4star hotel 20years ago definately not now. Rooms are basic but clean, but hotel in general needs tlc. Staff in dining room used to be rude, that has changed. Breakfast was poor it is O.K. now. We always stay b&b as dinner was awful, but the hotel us 5mins walk from old town with its many restuarants.
friendly staff, on the beach 10metres.
Excellent location, everyone was very nice and we had really enjoyable long weekend away.
The hotel and location by the beach was brilliant , staff were lovely . I went with mum first time for 47 years , we had great time food was good to . only 1 complaint , the pipe music out side hotel while on the beach got on ure nerves abt after an hour while on the beach.
not a lot x location was ok
no pool, 15 euros for 2 beds on the beach, breakfast just ok
location is very good and near to the old town , beaches said , free internet in lobby , to many event in the night to old people
no free internet in the room , and the pries is expensive
