Still loved it.

We stayed at the ‘Barbacán Sol’ with my parents back in the 80’s and 90’s as kids. Was great to go back and see the hotel again. Perfect location for the Yumbo centre, restaurants, shopping and only...

Amazing Hotel

02 Jan 2020
Visited for a second time in July 2019 and this is an amazing resort hotel! 5 stars for everything from accommodation, service, staff, entertainment and the food is absolutely excellent. We will...


Ideally located in the lively resort of Playa del Ingles, just 500 metres distance from the town center with its large selection of shops, bars, restaurants and nightlife. Playa del Ingles beach is 2km away and the Playa de Maspalomas beach is 6km away.

Second time at the Barbican after being here in July 2014. Travelled with family and friends and better this time round. The new pool (Don Fernando) makes such a difference in that there is no longer the cattle rush for sunbeds required. This is the main focus point for the afternoon animation which was always good fun. The rooms are just as before, tidy, well stocked, large sunny balcony, fab air conditioning (when the wife let me turn it on!). Location wise, very handy for the Yumbo centre and also the other local eateries. 15 minutes walk down the hill to the beach front.

We ate a few times in the hotel (buffet option) and could not fault this. Loads of choice and plenty for all tastes. It was both my daughter's and friend's birthdays on consecutive days and we ordered birthday cakes from the restaurant the day before (no problem at all and very tasty to boot.) Enjoyed the fab cocktails in the Lounge bar from our "Tom Cruise", Carlos, who was ably assisted by Samara who tried her Mohito preparation training on us (well, someone had to help her out!). Most impressed by the animation team of Robbin, Xanne, Jarno etc who worked tirelessly throughout the day and night to get all (or as many as could be bothered) to take part in all their activities.

1st time we have returned to the same accommodation ever in almost 25 years of holiday trips - says it all really. You never know, might be back next year too.

Second time at this ApartHotel (suppose that says a lot). Enjoyed the experience once again but the Bungalows are beginning to look a bit jaded and could do with being re-furbished. Having said that, staff were first class and I will be returning in the not too far future.

We stayed in apartment which was very clean throughout. No double beds available though. Was mostly Germans when we were there, early November. Staff very polite and helpful. Location is great, short walk to beach, bars and restaurants and supermarkets very close by.

It was a lovely experience, the rooms are cleaned every day, fresh towels if you require on a daily basis as well. Also they provide poolside towels, which I've never had before. The food is great and plentiful, the evening meal was different every night buffet style, but A la 'carte' if you wanted. We were self catering so the cost of breakfast was 10 euros pp, and evening meal 18 pp, but in your information pack you get deals which can work out cheaper. All in all the hotel is worth staying at, the staff are helpful and friendly. If you're self catering the supermarket isn't that good but if you go out of the hotel by the lounge bar there is another supermarket across the road. But please don't be put off by this comment as it wouldn't put us off going back, try it out and you will not be disappointed.

The Apartments were large and airy with air conditioning and a large balcony. They were well maintained and were spotlessly clean. The entertainment provided was unexpected and although not quite X Factor was very entertaining. The food was there in abundance with an excellent choice of items but we did find that the beans were only ever warm and not hot. The Chinese night buffet as excellent and we particularly enjoyed the freshly prepared stir fry.

We didn't have a problem with other guests reserving the sun loungers but it was relatively quiet at the time we were there. The only downside for me was the large island in the pool which does prevent any serious swimming for those who might like to swim.

The apartment and the people were wonderful and we felt secure and at home from home.

The rooms were nice and there was a very nice sheltered outside patio as well as a very large sun patio on the roof. The gardens and adjacent aparthotels were well cared for and staying outside with the advantage of home living was a nice holiday experience.
