The stay was good. Enjoyed the room, comfortable and ambiance. However, the hotel in general looked slightly dated. The pool had yellowing stains. It was always low tide at the hotel (don’t know why). The all-inclusive was really good. But as a vegetarian I would have appreciated if more items could have been included into the menu as by the 3rd day I was repeating my orders and was getting abit tired with the menu. Overall, good stay. But maybe some maintenance and upgrading works needs to be carried out. Read less

We have lost track of the number of times we have stayed at the Sol Beach hotel over the past 20 years and here are some of the reasons. The hotel is an older style but small and friendly and clean and the staff are all awesome and treat you like royalty! The all inclusive gives you the freedom to eat and drink without the signing of dockets. There are 3 Restaurants to choose from and I think that the food and drink selection and quality during our visit this month was the best ever! There is entertainment at night with shows in the beach areas. Laundry is included in the all inclusive so that you can return home with a minimum of washing. There are shops in the hotel for souvenirs and clothes The rooms are spacious and the bathrooms large and there is a good size balcony. The icing on the cake for us is the Swim up Pool Bar where you can meet guests from all over the world. We will be back! Read less

A delightful friendly hotel with lovely garden and beach. Staff great and food great! We enjoyed a wonderful romantic dinner for two on the beach ! Five courses perfectly served . The only reason for not giving five stars is that there are no courtesy rooms for late departing guests. The management really should take this criticism on board as many guests complained about this day after day! Any hotel we have been in around the world has decent shower and change facilities but not the Sol Genoa! No problem if you are departing midday but we left at 7pm! Read less
