Just got back from a week at this hotel. The best thing about it was that it was clean. The food was ok but not amazing. If you are British and under 30 then this hotel is NOT for you! The bar man was rude and grumpy and chose who he wanted to serve first. The reception staff were also...

Ruby solimar is ideally located to have a nice relaxing holiday yet only a 5 minute walk to the main strip. From the moment you step through the door the staff cannot do enough for you.

Our hotel (Solimar Ruby) was horrendous. We arrived there well and checked in and decided to go for a drink at the bar before we had an early night. We were then told that all drinks after 11pm will now cost us. We were very surpised to have been told this as we were under the impression we had booked...

Came here for a week, booked a superior room for £70 extra through Jet2.com. We stayed in room 116, overlooking the road. A bit disappointing, but when we woke in the morning, we had a lovely view of the hills in the background, we had the sun in the morning, which was nice, meaning our balcony was nice and cool...

We paid £70 for the "deluxe" room and got 2 bottles of water and out of date fruit for the privilege. Apart from that the room was the same as the standard ones, ie very poor. However, the rooms were cleaned well each day by friendly staff and new towels provided. No more bottled water, unfortunately. The Pool and bar...
