A gem of a hotel.

This is the second time my husband and I have stayed at the Sol Y Mar and we had yet another fabulous holiday. The staff are friendly, helpful and welcoming, and they go the extra mile to make your stay special. The rooms are spacious and well equipped with lots of lovely little extras such as cooling foot cream, lavender spray and toiletries. We were supplied with complimentary bottled water on a daily basis and beach towels were available by the pool. Additional touches, like a supply of sun cream by the pool are what makes this hotel so good. It is perfectly situated in the centre of the town and with direct access to the beach. The cocktails are just scrummy, as is the extensive breakfast which is available until 11am! We love this hotel and can't wait for it to become an adults only hotel next year when they open their new Suitopia hotel for families.

The best thing about my stay was...

The relaxed and friendly staff and superb surroundings.

Fantastic hotel

Amazing views of the sea and surrounding area, plus the cleanliness of the hotel itself at all times of the day/night.

A fabulous, family friendly hotel.

My family and I had a fabulous week in this hotel and came away feeling rested and happy. It is perfectly positioned within town and on the sea front, making it quick and easy to get to the beach as well as all the shops and restaurants. The pool area and day beds were just fantastic and it was lovely to sip Mojitos on the rooftop away from the pool and noisy children if you needed a break. Breakfast was great, offering a super selection and the staff were all very friendly and helpful. I will certainly return as Alpha Rooms also did it for a fabulous price.

The best thing about my stay was...

A feeling of luxury, especially in the pool area with the champagne bar and chill out music.

A hidden gem

Just spent 8 nights in this lovely hotel. Chose a twin superior room with sea view and was not disappointed. very central to the local beach and also shops. restaurants etc. Food and service excellent and staff very friendly and helpful at all times. This hotel has everything, and I hope to return

lovely hotel

A very nice hotel, worthy of it's 4 stars. Very large bathroom with bath and separate shower, with window onto the courtyard - not often you get that these days! Nice touch the complimentary water, soft drinks and fruit. The only thing that stopped me giving this a perfect 10, was the lack of a carpet in the corridor, you can hear other guests heels tap tapping down the corridor at night - a strip of carpet would solve that. Also the car parking is expensive

The best thing about my stay was...

location is perfect for the beach, shops, bars, restaurants etc.

luxury at an affordable price

There is a bill board advertising the Sol y Mar on the motorway from Alicante saying "one of the top 10 hotels in Spain". I would agree that it is the best hotel i have used in Spain. the location is superb, the views from the bedrooms and the dining room are amazing. Service is excellent, and the buffet meals for breakfast and dinner of the highest quality.

Great holiday, great hotel

Hotel was great, clean and the service was very good. The breakfast buffet was great and had a good choice for all. The pool area is the best I've ever been to and the location is very beautiful. The only thing was that we had a standard room, which was very nice, but only has twin beds, they did put double sheets on the beds though as soon as we asked. We would definatley go back to this hotel and would recommend it to anyone.

A absoulute fantastic hotel

Beautiful room with a balcony and a sea view, very clean and really nice having a large fridge in the room. Lovely staff and very good breakfast with a very large amount of choices. The champagne bar is brilliant as is the swimming pool. The only down side is for the britts there are only three news television stations I think full sky would benefit the hotel, though you don't really go to spain to watch tv

Highly Recommended

Stayed in an outside room (401) which faces the street but has a side sea view. Sun on balcony form approx 3pm (end June). Spotlessly clean and spacious room. Clean public areas. Very friendly and helpful staff. Excellent location. B&B deal - Breakfast choice good. No chance of a sun lounger unless you are up before the larks. And if you do, you need to be comfortable with your fellow guests (they are ess than an inch apart!). Champangneria and beach club worth a visit. 8 Euro Bombay Sapphire G&T but a free pour (triple I would say) which is far superior to those 5 Euro G&Ts you get on the beach front bars (Larios Gin which we could hardly detect). Plenty of choice of restaurants in town which is literally on the doorstep. Normally rent an aprtment but are likely to return here

Great hotel, well located

We choose this hotel for a 1 week stay as we wanted to be near the beach. The hotel is easily the best 4 star hotel we have stayed in. Very clean and comfortable room (we paid extra for a sea view and it was brilliant. On the 8th floor the views were stunning). Breakfast is excellent, the buffet is vast and varied. Freshly squeezed orange juice, fresh eggs, fruit, you name it, it was there. Dinner was also excellent, again a buffet, but the choice huge. We never got bored eating in the restaurant, but there is also an a la carte restaurant onsite but is charged extra (if, like us you paid for dinner bed and breakfast, which we would highly recommend). The hotel is modern, like a large boutique hotel. Next to the beach the location is great. Beach was very well maintained, cleaned every day with very good life guard on duty all day. Ideal for families with young children who enjoy the sea. The gym is good for a hotel and free for guests. My wife used the spa (extra charge) and she was impressed. Mostly Spanish guests although we heard a few British voices. Some German guests too, who didn't seem to understand the sunbeds cannot be reserved but that's not the hotels fault (although a sign in German in addition to the Spanish and English ones might help). All of the staff were excellent and friendly even though some didn't speak English and couldn't understand us. It wasn't an issue though. Not many hotels we have stayed in are worth visiting again as we are fussy. This is not one of them. Can't wait to go back!
