Those seeking rest and relaxation in the sun need look no further than the Sol Y Paz apartments. While away lazy days on the sun terrace and in the swimming pool, with a snack bar on hand for those all important refreshments. Alternatively, venture into the resort centre, it's just 50m to Puerto Rico's Europa Centre with its bars, restaurants and shops, or spend the day on the sweeping beach. Rooms at the Sol Y Paz Apartments have a twin bedroom plus sofa bed in the living area, satellite TV, kitchenette with fridge, bathroom, WC, shower and a balcony or terrace. Facilities at the Sol Y Paz Apartments include a rectangular swimming pool, sun terrace with sunloungers and parasols, childrens section of the main pool, playground, WiFi internet access, pool table, occasional evening entertainment and the Taurito golf course is nearby.
Meals & Drinks...SC . Pool bar serves a variety of local and international dishes.
"We loved here so much we managed to rebook within 24 hrs of being home and we going again in..."

We loved here so much we managed to rebook within 24 hrs of being home and we going again in 5 weeks time, we normally go 5*all inclusive but after reading reviews we decided to try sol y paz.

It was a massive chance to take cause we had my husbands mum (78 years old) with us, and shes fussy on a day to day basis on all aspects of change but she loved it too.

We cant fault anything, the apts are clean and very adequate to cover your needs.

The staff and holiday makers all became friends cause its only 40 rooms, plenty of sunbeds and a great atmoshere, the tuesday night barbie is a great nights craic.

Nitelife straight across the street and fab resturants with very cheap meals(steaks ave 7e to 10e).

Compared to turkey and egypt we had no great hassled getting invited into resturants to eat a simple no ty seemed to do the trick.

When you go to sol y paz if you have a preference to ground floor as we did, it wasnt a problem, ask your travel agent to arrange and haley tries to facitate your request.

The food at the pool bar was excellent and very reasonably priced as well.

Go here if you get the chance,we know we will make it our favorite and we are very widely travelled.

Hope this helps you, good luck.

We spent 2 weeks at the Sol Y Pas with our grandaughter and it was fantastic. Our room was clean and kept clean the whole time it has a safe enviroment, not too big and you can see where your children are at all times.

The staff were excellent, nothing was too much trouble for them, we were close by all amenities we had nothing to complain about.

STAYED ONE NIGHT AND ONLY BECAUSE WE WERE HAVING TROUBLE GETTING ANOTHER HOTEL.
THE APT WAS DARK AND DREARY. BEDS HARD AND BEDS AND BEDDING DIRTY AND DAMP,TOOK PHOTOS TO PROVE IT.

FRIDGE FULL OF WATER AND NOT WORKING.COOKING FACILITIES VERY POOR. WORST APT WHAVE STAYED IN, NO AMENITIES FOR CHILDREN.

RANG THOMAS COOK TO MOVE TO BETTER HOTEL AS WE DID NOT EVEN UNPACK, GRANDSON AND DAUGHTER IN TEARS SO DISAPOINTED AS WE WERE TO SPEND CHRISTMAS THERE. FINALLY GOT MOVED NEXT MORNING BUT COST ME SMALL FORTUNE

STILL TRYING TO GET REFUND FROM THOMAS COOK WHO ARE TOTALY IGNORING ME. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS HOTEL TO ANYONE.

I went with my sister an to be honest we chose these apts as they were the cheapest! but....excellent value for money. Great location for everythin, we ventured down the hill once as we were happy with what we had at the top of the hill.

Nice restaurants, and barbacoa is worth a visit - great chicken fajitas!!

Apts are brilliant, can lie outside your appt if you dont wanna lie by the pool which is lovely - staff very friendly ....brilliant holiday all round - def go here again.

My wife and I went to stay at the Sol Y paz in October. It was a last minute booking and we did not know what to expect. We were very pleasantly surprised.

The apartments were very clean and had everything you needed for a self catering holiday. The staff were very helpful with any requirements that you had or any problems. Especially Hayley and Valerie (who cooked the breakfasts.)

The complex is small but ideal for couples or single people without kids. The best eating place for night time is over the road in the Europa centre. About 5 mins walk. Its called El Brassero and is run by a great fellow called Rashid. The steaks are superb.

We would definitely stay there again. We have been coming to Puerto Rico for about 15 years and this is one of the best places we have stayed.

Just back from a stay in Sol y Paz and can truthfully say I won't be returning! Appartments veryyyy basic, the beds were like bricks. I was told the appartments were a 'family complex' and this was not the case at all. It was more like a singles club with no facilities for children at all! Oh sorry there was a children's section of the pool however it was always filthy and it was also cold.

Having the Europa bar across the street was the only plus side to the appartments as they are situated at the very top of the mountain meaning you have to get taxi's everywhere, walking was not an option! Would not recommend these appartments unless you're young single and find it funny when people jump into the pool half naked at 4 o clock in the morning! Have to admit though the staff were lovely especially Pat!

From the first time we stayed here me and my partner have always tried to go back there. We have been to Gran Canaria 25 x's and stayed at many diffenet places. Including Gran Canaria Princess, which was lovely but not nearly as friendly as sol y paz.. We have stayed 5 x's here and have loved every minute of it. Hayley and staff are so friendly and helpful and we have now become good friends. If you are looking for a good ideal holiday with the perfect place to stay then this is the 1 for you. The location of sol y paz is ideal, taxi's, buses, shops, restaurants (highley recommend El Brassario, suberb food)cleanliness and friendliness, then do yourself a favour and go HERE. Like lots of other peoples comments Tuesday nights are a must, food and entertainment a must, perfect atmosphere for party night. People complain about Eden appartments at the back, but you learn to switch off and do your own thing. If you go say hello to Haley and Pat for us. Going back very, very soon.. Believe me you will love it..

We go to Puerto Rico every year and stayed in many apartments. But i can say with out question Sol y Paz is the best and the cleaness we have stayed in. You have hayley, pat and faye looking after you hayley is the boss lady and will know you in 1 day and everyone else in the apartments. Tuesday night is the night you have a free meal on the apartments and the sauce they put on your food is something to kill for mmmmmmmm. We are going back in Oct and we will staying at Sol y Paz and years to come. So if you choose Sol y Paz i know you have a good time and a good holiday. You have a bedroom on its own kettle, tv, toaster, f/freezer, 2 ring electic hob. Theres 2 floors nice bar where you can get food all day. Across the road you have all the shops, res, bars (you have to go into a bar called bonkerz and meet scottish dave hes a nutter) 3 euro taxi ride to the beaches. So if you are reading this i hope you have a great holiday at Sol y Paz i know you will love it happy hols

Me and my girlfriend loved are break in puerto rico. The Sol y Paz was a nice place with great staff. Just outside is a taxi rank and a bus stop. You can get a taxi to Puerto Rico shopping centre for 3 euros where you can find more shops, bars and restaraunts from those just over the way. I advise anyone who goes to the Sol y Paz to get some nice sause what pat does that you can bring home. She puts it on the free meal you get on a entertainment night.

I decided to go back to Puerto Rico, but this time i was on my own. Thinking i may have a crap time it was the opposite the apartments were excellent the staff excellent and all the people who was staying there were really friendly to me. I would strongly advise anyone who was thinking of going to Puerto Rico to stay there if you are single like i was or a couple or a family or a group of men or women. Thank you for making my stay very welcome.

I have just returned from a wonderful week at the Sol y Paz apartments, which I found to be ideal accommodation, as it was clean and comfortable, constant hot water, with every amenity I required for a self catering holiday. Hayley and Pat, who run the complex, created a friendly atmosphere, and were more than helpful in anything I needed. They were also fabulous hostesses at the bar, and the pool party night, where they provided a delicious FREE meal with Canarian potatoes and home made MOJO sauce. A speciality!! That evening we also had games of Bingo, quizes and kareoke, which gave everyone the opportunity to get to know one another. Both Hayley and Pat worked very hard and made the evening fun and entertaining.
Just outside and across the road from the Sol y Paz complex, was the Europa Shopping Centre which had a large Netto Supermarket, lots of shops, bars and restaurants, entertainment, something to suit everyone. The Taxi Rank and local bus stop was just outside the complex too, so everything to hand. I would certainly visit the Sol y Paz again and would recommend it as a good holiday destination.

Stayed at sol y paz for 7 days in april '07, me & 2 friends went for my 30th and had a ball! Was a bit wary of the hill business, should not have worried, taxi service just across a quiet road. Apartment was basic but clean - no roaches! Felt very secure as main gate was locked at 9pm and could only be opened by guests, a laugh after some of pat's sangria's! Haley & Pat, the staff, could not have done more for us - thanks for everything! u got to have their mojo sauce & canarian spuds! The lay out of the apartments was good, with the europa centre just across the road it makes a great holiday. I'm planning on taking my 8 year old in '08, i have never been to the same place twice on holiday but sol y paz has a great feel to it and i will return there soon!

"Me and my boyfriend decided we wanted to go on holiday in the last two weeks of march, we we..."

Me and my boyfriend decided we wanted to go on holiday in the last two weeks of march, we were looking through the interenet for puerto rico, cos one of our friends reccommeded it as we hadn't an idea of where on the canaries we wanted to go. I booked a holiday for the Sol Y Paz but on the information the travel agent told me was that it was like a mile away from anything so i thought id do some investigating and found myself on this website and it told me there was shops, bars and resturants nearby. We got off the plane and it was raining, great start to the holiday then we were on the coach and the rep was telling us about cockroaches and i was like 'oh my god there gonna be in our hotel its only a 2 star hotel' still from this day i havent seen a cockroach! We got off the coach at our stop and from the outside our hotel didnt look as great as the ones we went past, so we checked in with lovely Pat from Hull! awww bless her! The next day and until we left the weather was absolutely glorious, the hotel was nice has a pool which is absolutely freezing cold but its good when your boiling, the pool bar is open most nights til 12 and on tuesday its free food night which Hayley cooks herself! When we went it was 2 massive pork chops, canarian potatoes and homemade coleslaw, it was good then they do bingo, quiz then kareoke! But across the road exactly opposite is the commercial centre with lots of different resturant, bars and shops. I definately reccommed staying here Pat and Hayley are easy to talk to and enjoy a laugh exactly what we come on holiday for! while your here you should go to the ammadores beach, man made beautiful beach, with bars, shops and resturants actually situated on the beach! If you spend a day in the hotel you know when its 4 o clock, next door eden apartments BINGO BINGO! its quite funny, it didnt really bother me, something to listen to!we are definately coming back this autumn for my 21st!

Just returned from Sol y Paz. What a nice small complex! rooms were fine and cleaned regurarly [approx. 1 metre from pool] plenty of sunbathing space and loungers. The small block helped create a friendly atmosphere and hayley the bar owner has a party night [with free food] which helps everyone get to know each other. Directly opposite was the europa centre and a taxi rank so everything was literally at your doorstep!! Puerto Rico has something for everyone and given the opportunity i shall be returning to sol y paz for another break!!

Fabulous wee place. This small complex is opposite the Europa Centre but the only noise is from the Eden apts to the rear. Ends at midnight so not a problem. My aunt is 74 and we stayed for two weeks. The complex is spotless & Hayley, the owner, knew all her guests names within a day. She is the friendliest lady and nothing is a problem. Tuesday nights are a blast and a terrific meal is given, FREE, to all her guests. I have already made my reservation to return. Oh, This is the only complex I've stayed in that gives you proper fluffy white towels and cotton sheets! Usually they are those horrid poly whatsit ones and thin, washed out blue or terracotta towels. Reccommend the Sol y paz to couples that dont want to be stuck in the Centre. You'll go back.

The apartment was far better than i thought it would be. The only problem was the eden hotel at the back of sol y paz, it was extremely loud and even though i loved our accomodation i would not stay here because of the eden apartments.

"My wife & I stayed at the Sol y Paz for 2 weeks in October 2006. We had originally book..."

My wife & I stayed at the Sol y Paz for 2 weeks in October 2006. We had originally booked the Tobago, and were diverted at the last minute. Overall, I think it was a good swap. Shortly before our trip, my wife had fallen and fractured a hip, which was just about recovered enough to use crutches. The topography of Puerto Rico is not good for people with walking difficulties, but we found the Sol y Paz was no problem in this respect. The complex is relatively small, consisting of 40 apartments in 2 blocks of 20, in 2 storeys arranged either side of a central swimming pool. We were able to choose a ground floor apartment which was on a level with the pool area with no steps. The apartments consist of a lounge with kitchenette, a small bathroom and a separate bedroom. Access is via a patio door leading onto a shaded patio area and then to the pool. The apartments were clean and comfortable with friendly and cheerful maid service most days. At the end of the pool is the bar, which is a central meeting place for all, and provides a good range of meals including the favourite all day breakfast (10am till evening). The complex is family run by Hayley and her partner Gonzalo. Although there is no official entertainment, their two young children provided plenty of laughs. The whole atmosphere was lively and pleasant, Hayley having exactly the right temperament for the job. The arrangement of the apartment blocks meant that most guests soon became acquainted and socialised well. I have to mention the neighbouring Eden complex which provided a good deal of noise pollution. Having endured their high volume entertainment package for some time, there was a plot afoot to throttle the DJ! This was a minor niggle though, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. I’ve since heard that another guest went straight to the travel agent and booked a return fortnight a month later.
The Sol y Paz is directly across the road from the Europa Centre, with easy access (via steps) to the various shops, bars & restaurants. I would definitely recommend the Sol y Paz to groups of all ages. They are setting up a website – www.*******.es

I was delighted to be allocated on arrival to the Sol y Paz Apartments.
Although the one-bedroomed apartments were small and basic, they were more than adequate for a couple (mid-40s) for a fortnight.
There was a decent sized lounge with a kitchenette along one wall, with a two-ring electric cooker, small kettle, toaster and an impressively large, brand new Whirlpool fridge freezer with the coin operated tv perched atop.
The dinky bathroom had a half-bath with shower over but was quite cute, always had plenty of hot water, and was adequate for our needs.
The complex of two rows of double storey apartments facing each other with the pool and bar in the middle, had an excellent and intimate lay-out. All the guests got to know each other, and it felt like an exclusive private club.
The apartments and complex were regularly cleaned to a very high standard, even our towels were folded into swan shapes as they do in swanky hotels.
Hayley and her family who ran the complex could not have been more friendly or welcoming. The pool bar party Hayley threw for us (with FREE food) was an absolute hoot! The food in the bar was always fresh, tasty and competitively priced.
My only gripe was not with the Sol y Paz, but with the Eden apartments behind. This was a Thompson family all-inclusive complex and the noise from their 'activity program' of bingo, karaoke, kids discos, happy hour and god-awful visiting 'artistes' was relentless from 10am to 3am each day. By the end of the fortnight I could have cheerfully strangled their resident DJ!
Although the complex is at the top of the hill, away from the all-hours bright lights of Puerto Rico, it is right opposite the Europa commercial centre with abundant shops, bars, restaurants, supermarkets and a cashpoint and cambio.
The local bus stops right outside and the taxi rank is opposite, so getting around is very easy and cheap.
By using local buses we went to Puerto Mogan for the Friday market, Arguineguin, Play del Ingles, and San Augustin and Bar PioPio for the live music show on Sunday (www.tauronsunday.com) which is highly recommended. All cheap and fun days out.
I would highly recommend the Sol y Paz to couples (especially the over-30s) and would definitely go back there myself. Praise indeed..!

The Sol Y Paz apartments are rated as 2 star, but are of a much better standard. Set high up overlooking Puerto Rico (very high) you can get around quickly and easily by either local bus (known as Yo-Yos) or taxis. The apartment was clean and had recently had a complete refurbishment, re-opening in (I believe) September 2002. The owner couldn't have been more helpful and the staff were friendly and helpful too. Kitchen equipment was basic but there was a huge fridge (with freezer compartment)and also TV. Large balconies overlooking the pool. There was no entertainment and the poolside bar did not open until we were actually leaving but nevertheless it was ideal for a couple of our age - mid 40's... However, as the apartments are located across the road from the Europa centre there were ample restaurants, bars and entertainment located there. If you get the chance to stay in these apartments I think you will be pleased with what they have to offer. Very clean, and obviously newly modernised, they were a real treat.
