me and 10 of my friends (all girls) visited the Hacienda Del Sol in July this year for a week. We had an absolutely amazing time and would tell anyone to go!
We were all worried after reading some of the terrible reviews on here about robberies etc at the hotel, but we had no problems whatsoever. We didn't put our money in the safes we just kept it in our suitcases with locks on. We had no break-ins/forced entry/robberies, and didn't feel threatened at any time. The security at Hacienda was brilliant, they have a security guard at the gate every night all through the night, who only lets in people staying at the hotel. The guards are great fun and always there to help.
As for the nightlife, the apartments are literally on the strip, you can't get much closer, its in a perfect location. The bars/clubs we went to the most were Rumours (try the dentists chair) and Tramps which was the big club on the Starco strip. We were told to go to the Starco strip and to try and avoid Veronicas strip as there was more chance of pickpocketing etc. on Veronicas, but we went there a couple of nights and had no problems.
There are loads of people trying to sell stuff on the streets, and we got roped into paying 50euros for a party called 'Mayhem'. We were offered a lot of things like free alcohol, t-shirts, free stuff when we got there, so we all paid a deposit and then met up with the guy again and paid the full 50. It was like a bar crawl so it was a lot of fun with drinking games etc, but maybe not worth the 50euros, because we didn't get half the stuff we were promised (we did get 10 bottles of free spirits though). You end up having to pay more on the actual night out, so don't be fooled into thinking 50euros is all it will cost, but if you fancy it, go for it, its a really good night.
Overall we had a fantastic holiday and we didn't want to leave. The Hacienda was perfect for us for what we wanted, the rooms were fine and clean, we got what we paid for. The pool/bar area is fine, not very big but everyone managed to get a space in the day for sunbathing etc, maybe just not a sunbed.
Don't let any bad reviews put you off this place, its perfect for a girls/lads holiday for people who are just looking for good nights out.
