How to Get There
I have previously written a great review about sole but unfortunately, my view has now changed as on a couple of occasions since we are back in the UK, the hotel has debited money from the credit card we had given without consent. This has caused my mum a great deal of stress as when they have refunded the money, due to the exchange rate, we have had less back and despite chasing, we have had another debit and still no refund.
This looks like a very old property that's under constant renovation in an effort to pass it off as a new hotel.
Where to start:
- No hot water from any tap. Asked the front desk, they told me to run the shower for ten minutes and see if it got warmer.
- Door lock simply wouldn't recognize my key. Asked the front desk, they said "oh yeah, that doesn't work" and sent a staff person with a master key up every time I wanted to go to my room.
- Several floors of the hotel were being repainted, all at once. Glad I didn't end up with a room on one of those floors.
- My colleague had to switch rooms because he checked in to discover his toilet was caked in feces.
For a hotel that cheerfully charges an expensive "resort fee" just to use the beach and the wifi, this is some bush-league nonsense.
AVOID THIS HOTEL!
Great bar staff, hit Carlos / Fernando / Johana up and they make great drinks and super sweet people. Tamara is a restaurant manager and a super sweet person and go out of her way to help you with local stuff to do.
The hotel just changed management, so the communication overall has been a miss which needs to improve.
This was our first time in the area. Kathleen made our check in and stay very memorable. The staffs are super nice both at the hotel, beach, restaurant and valet parking. The quality of restaurant food is great. The rooms were very clean and the ambiance was very relaxing. We highly recommend this hotel.
We stayed at the Sole on the Ocean over Thanksgiving week. Overall, it is a nice place to stay. We enjoyed a room with a kitchen and a living area and a partial view of the ocean. The room was a little dated but clean and well maintained. There was a nice balcony but no chairs or a little coffee table... also, there is no drying rack on the balcony to hang wet swim suits... I think that is an inconvenience... I saw some other guests had taken out chairs from the inside of the room to use on the balcony. We dined at the hotel restaurant once and I think it’s a bit overpriced for the quality of the food it offers. The wait staff, however, was very polite and courteous.
You get only 2 beach chairs and 1 umbrella free with your room. So for a family of 3 or 4 , you have to pay for additional chairs and umbrella. Hmmm.
The food service on the beach was otherwise ok.
I believe that the little details distinguish a good place from a great one. And this hotel is really close to becoming a great one.
