The apartments needs a major upgrade. Could not use kettle and toaster at the same time as everything would fuse. Saw housekeeping once in the ten days we were there but on a lighter note the apartment we had was large. The pool area was nice. All the staff that we had contact with were very friendly especially the man at reception who came up to fix the electric problem on a number of occasions so, for this reason, I would return to this complex. At the end of the day it's only a base. Very near to the beach and main strip. Toni's pool bar is great for snacks during the day and drinks in the evening.

The apartments are basic but if you ask reception they will provide anything you need, the beds were changed once a week and the towels every 3 days. For the price it's value for money.

This is our third time staying in the Solmonte Aparthotel. Its location is excellent, the apartments are clean and spacious and have everything you need for a self catering holiday. It is great value for money, staff are very friendly and helpful.

I have stayed there before so I know what to expect, it's like stepping back in time. Cheap and cheerful, you sleep there get a shower and changed, you don't live in the place. Tonis bar in the building is excellent, so don't go expecting the Ritz because it's not but right location in Rocha for beach bars etc I will be going back because I'm not a snob.

My self-catering apartment was completely unfit for purpose as it was impossible to cook or even boil a kettle without the power going off. I complained to reception on numerous occasions about this from day one but this was still not rectified by the time I checked out after eight nights. During this time I was given two excuses: firstly, reception advised that this was an issue with the boiler and then when I explained that the couple next door to me had the exact same problem they changed their story to say that guests couldn't use two electrical sockets or switches at the same time (e.g. lights plus kettle, or lights plus cooker) which is absolutely ludicrous – in other words I could in theory boil the kettle if I was happy to sit in the dark to do so. They also made reference to the fact that they were aware of the issue, so evidently the room was allocated to me with the hotel already knowing that I was being given a sub-standard room. I asked to be moved to an alternative room on a number of occasions but each time was told that there were no available rooms.

The day after arriving I asked to speak to the manager but was informed that he was out. At no point during the remainder of my stay did he make any effort to make contact with me. I also asked for a complaint form and was told that there were none available but that one would be handed up to my room – however, this did not happen.

In the apartment itself, one socket was completely exposed and dangerous looking, ceiling light fixings were not secured, and the tiling in the bathroom was cracked and dirty. Normally in a hotel bed linen is changed at least every few days, however mine was not changed until I specifically requested this on the fifth day – and when it was finally changed I was given a torn sheet. Given the state of the room I spent most of my holiday out of my room so I was only aware of a cleaner being there once. When I came back into the room after it being supposedly cleaned there was no evidence of any actual cleaning having been done, with the exception of one solitary strip of wet flooring, the width of a mop. I had deliberately left some crisp crumbs on the floor to establish whether or not the room was being cleaned and they remained there until I removed them myself. There was also no table on the balcony, so while I could sit outside there was nowhere to place a cold drink.

Within the hotel grounds, the pool was dirty with algae and was not cleaned until two days before I checked out. All of the sun-loungers were filthy (and I only counted 12 loungers for a hotel with 90 rooms).

Apartments not clean as expected, no kettle for first two days. Maid service poor they changed towels and made beds once a week and emptied bins - nothing else they didn't brush or mop floors. Pool water cold, not enough sun loungers for guests. The apartments themselves had broken tiles and the corridors could do with a good clean and paint and an up to date lift. Defo would not go back, the only good thing was that it was close to the beach.
