Hotel slightly dated and could do with upgrading perhaps flat screen TVs and tea and coffee making facilities but the rooms are big and have a really beautiful view over the sea , there is a fridge in the room which is good for keeping drinks in . Air conditioning is very good but I think wifi should be available in rooms instead of running up to the bar to check emails ect. The rooms are kept clean with maid service every day . This hotel cannot be beaten for it's position for both the Old Town and the beach. The staff all very helpful and friendly

The hotel is superbly located for the beach and the quieter part of the Old Town. All the rooms have balconies with sea view and twin beds. Our room on the 4th floor was large and bright although a bit dated. The bathroom was in need of some updating and TLC but was cleaned and towels changed daily. Plenty of wardrobe space and a fridge for your own drinks. The reception staff were friendly and welcoming and they kept our cases for a few days whilst we went on a trip. We had half board but just had breakfast each day. With a little bit of attention the breakfast could be good. There was plenty of choice but the fried eggs were cold, the juice over diluted and the cold meats of poor quality. On two mornings the coffee (self service from a machine) was undrinkable. Some guests were bringing their own food to supplement that on offer and we would do that if we stayed again. It's easy for the hotel to fix - just a little more effort and care needed. Service improved when a tall grey haired man joined the team on our second day. He acknowledged everyone with a Good morning. No wifi in room but good bandwidth in lounge area. Overall a good value hotel in a superb location.

When we got to the Sol E Mar, the lady at reception was lovely and quickly booked us in. Our room was I the 4th floor and to say the view was amazing is an under statement! The hotel is in such a great location for the beach and the Old Town. The rooms were big and airy and the maid service was great. Breakfast was nice, but after reading previous reviews I took my own tea bags! Plenty of variety. The hotel staff were all really nice and we especially liked the barman at the Rainbow bar! All the hotel guests seemed to be there for a nice quiet holiday, so like other reviews say, there wasn't large groups of stag or hen parties annoying us! So many great restaurants to choose from right on your door step! We will definitely be going back to the Sol E Mar next year! We stayed at the Rocamar last year, but the rooms are bigger and all the rooms have a sea view at the Sol E Mar. Rocamar was lovely too, but overall I'd day the Sol E Mar has the edge. Thank you for a lovely stay!

got back yesterday , hotel dated but nice the room we got 215 was big and had a realy beautiful view over the sea , there was a fridge in the room which is good for keeping drinks in . rooms kept clean maid every day . the resurant over looks the sea and food not brilliant but ok , we will go again but only bed and breakfast because there are so many different restaurant to eat at , the 1 thing I will say is the first few day's we we're there there was an older man waiting on tables and he was really rude and not friendly at all I feel that ur dinning experience should be a nice experience but we felt that we couldn't wait to get out of there. on the last few days another man wws serving and he made it a bit better . we would like to say thank you to the lovely lady on reception who emailed jet 2 to get our transfer sorted as the rep didn't no there was any 1 staying in the hotel. we had a lovely holiday and will definitely return. the town is lovely go to the shell house in the back street its really nice and friendly , also the square has entertainment on every night.
