“Great hotel facilities and staff, wonderful views from our balcony”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 October 2011

I chose this hotel because of its very good reviews and I was not disappointed; we had hired a car so getting around was easy; although driving around Lisbons smaller streets in the Arabic area is a bit daunting, so best avoided.

Room Tip: I asked for a great view of the river and got a perfect one.

All the amenities, indoor & outdoor pool, excellent fitness facilities, restaurant, bar, spa etc. Amazing sea views from your room that has fridge, oven, washer/dryer and large balconies. Staff were always pleasant. Stayed 6 nights and would definitely recommend this hotel with it's incredible views vs staying in downtown Lisbon.

Room Tip: We requested a sea view room when we booked with the travel agent which would have been more expensi...

Stayed for 6 nights in apartment room in 5th floor.great views from the big balcony and pool view coming outside the lift. Rooms clean with well maintained bathrooms except A.C never worked properly not only myroom but many of my friends also had same problem and doest have a clock .
People both at reception and at restorant are very helpful . Breakfast is good but eat the same menu everyday.they have organized early breakfast on 2days on request as we were leaving for seirghseeing and started early to airport .served the whole menu at 6.45 am andat 6 am which is really appreciated.
Pool and gym looked great though not used.though a little away from down town well connected by bus.equipped withkichen stove fridge freezer and utensils.WiFi available at bar room.taxi services are arranged very fast.

We've just come back from our stay at Solplay. It's a great place to discover Lisbon, thanks to their very convenient free shuttle service, while spending some days in the sun (excellent swimming pools, tennis court and sunbeds area).
The rooms were clean and confortable and the kitchenette is well equipped. When we go back to Lisbon, we'll go back to this hotel.

We have just had a week at the Solplay and it is an excellent hotel. We had a two bedroom suite, which was huge. As well as the two bedrooms, there were two bathrooms, one with bath and one with shower. There was a large living, dining and kitchen area and a huge balcony, that could be accessed from the main room and the two bedrooms. The balcony has a table and chairs and loungers.

The facilities at the hotel are excellent. Not only are there large indoor and outdoor pools, there is a also a very well fitted gym. The restaurant serves good quality meals. There is a standard menu and a buffet style dinner every other night. The buffet includes a mix of cold fodds, two choices of hot meals, soup, a wide range of desserts and juices. At 17 euro, it is excellent value. Snacks and smaller meals can be bought in the bar. The steak sandwich at 9.50 euro was good value.

However, what makes this hotel, is the sheer friendliness and professionalism of the staff. We couldn't fault any of them.

I couldn't decide whether to award the Solplay, four or five stars, but decided on five as I have judged the hotel rather than its location. There is nothing wrong with Linda a Velha, it's just that there is nothing to do in the immedaite vicinity of the hotel. If you are happy to make use of facilties and to eat at the hotel each evening that's fine. Personally, we would have liked to be able to walk to some good quality restaurants. Notwithstanding this, the hotel provides an excellent free shuttle bus service. This can take you into Lisbon, whre you can stay for 6 hours, or to Estoril for the beaches, where again you can stay for around 6 hours. We used the service a number of times, occasionally only one way, prefering the flexibility of making our way back by train (and then a 15-20 minute walk). It's worth mentioning the train, as the services are regular and only cost 3 euro to Lisbon or Estoril return, 1.95 euro one way.

The whole family loved the Solplay, but just wished that there was more to see and do in the immediate area.

Family of 4 stayed here for 5 nights in July and both the kids and adults loved this hotel. Very helpful staff, nice breakfast buffet, lovely 2-bedroom apartments and great facilities both indoor and outdoor. We used the swimmingpools both indoor and outdoor, and for those who like a workout indoor you have great training facilities. Also worth to mention is Bruno who is responsible for the children activities. He is very good with the kids and they loved him. We will certainly recommend this Hotel to everyone.
