"Our room (with a spa access) was lovely and spacy, we really appreciated its “old” classical design & calming colours. The room was near a spa lift, so all we needed is just to put on our bathrobes and go downstairs😊. The only minus – they didn’t have any electric kettle in the room, so it was a bit difficult to organize our daily herbal teas. The receptionists and the service team were simply exceptional: on the day of the arrival they were four times in our room, helping us with an unfamiliar safe system, different bed blankets, tissues… and everything with a sincere smile. Breakfast: freshly made smoothies and tomato spread, finest cured meats, different cheeses, tortilla, omelettes, fruit, vegetables, cava and some other nice extras at the weekend:)... The spa pool - water was nice and clear, but sometimes overchlorinated. The pool was often busy (especially at the weekend), but there were gaps - directly after the breakfast, 13.00-14.00 & and 19.00-21.00. Various hydromassage beds. Local mineral water, different kinds of tea and towels were included. There are also many beautiful natural parks and walking areas in the vicinity. And, by the way, there’s a mineral water spring directly opposite to the spa entrance, the locals take water there every day at certain hours and it’s very tasty."
"Hotel is very good, clean, spacious and staff friendly! Small details, like huggy bear and welcome letter for children and extra choce of pillows was a big plus! Breakfast very rich of variety and fresh foods. Big Minus is limited pool time for children! We always choose spa hotels cause our toddler loves to swim, and unfortunately in Spain I haven’t found child friendly spa that does not limit children from visiting all the installations of spa without schedules. In northern countries of EU spas are mainly for children and have slides, water toys and unlimited access so all family can enjoy! They have spa area for children but it is open Only on weekends and during summer... it’s like discrimination for families who travel in midweek. Other minus is that they don’t have any saunas included for hotel guests! You can gain pass to other areas of spa by paying extra! Thermal pool has lots of jets and massage beds, water is nice and warm. We also had a’la carte restaurant included for dinner. Service was very nice and professional, staff very friendly! Food was beautifully presented but lack of taste, so overall nothing special! infront of the hotel there is amazing restaurant La Martintera where we had lunch and it was 10 X better than our hotel dinner and price the same. Finally it’s not the best choice for families with children as they prefer to rather keep swimming pool empty and children play area closed than let children enjoy. "
"My family (my wife, two kids and I) spent a long weekend at this hotel during the Christmas Holidays. We were looking for a family-friendly hotel with spa, to spend some days in relax. This hotel was a great choice. The staff is friendly and helpful, the spa is nice, and the rooms are clean, spacious and cozy. Children have scheduled access to the pool, which is a good thing for both parents with kids and other guests. Perhaps the morning schedule could be shifted 30 minutes or 1 hour later, but even so waking up, having a relaxed breakfast, going back to the room and preparing the kids for the pool is still manageable, although not "relaxing". The hotel is located in a small village and has a paid parking. It's easy to reach from the motorway and although Solares hasn't many things to offer, there are many nice places to visit close to it."
