Thoroughly enjoyed our 2 week holiday at Sol Barbacan. It was in an ideal spot, short walk away from everything. Rooms kept spick and span and friendly staff at all times. We loved the evenings when we could sit and enjoy fabulous cocktails and listen to music. The bartender knew our drinks as soon as he saw us, great attention...
