Castillo del Sol is the best I love it there!!
Me, my sister, age 15, and my mother went to Puerto Rico in Gran Canaria and Castillo del Sol was the best hotel ever!! The rooms were very clean and basic. There was always hot water for a shower and there was never any problems there. The pool was brilliant, cold but when it is hot you really don't care!! The pool bar is excellent and then people behind it. Mauolo, Nicole, Maria and Mayte are very, very nice people and I can't wait to go back and see them all. The food was very nice never wasted anything!! Damingo was the man that did the entertainment, Karaoke and BBQs etc. Damingo always had my sister and mother up to sing!! I never went up and sung haha!! There was also a snake show there. I didn't like that because I am terrified of snakes!! So I stayed with Maria and Mayte by the pool bar. There is also two pool tables open all day and night. Oh well there's so much fun there at the Castillo del Sol and I can't wait to go back soon!!

The Castillo Del Sol was brilliant! I went there for a week but that was not long enough! If you go there make sure you stay for about 2 weeks minimum! The pool bar staff are great we have become close friends now and we keep going back to see them every couple of months. It's the same heat all year round though we did have 2 minutes of rain one day but it was very hot rain!! The pool is very cold but as soon as you get in it's ok! There is a baby section in the pool it is very shallow. The food in the pool bar is outstanding (expecially mauolos pizzas!) Me, my sister and mother went and evey time we were out there we always met others and have a good time. Castillo Del Sol is the only hotel in Gran Canaria that you will meet welcoming people in my opinion! And Damingo gives very good entertainment in the nights! Karaoke, BBQs and one night he even had a snake show! I was scared though because I hate snakes! But it was still alright beacause I stayed with the pool staff (Nicole, Mayte and Maria and Mauolo) Hahaha!! Please go here and enjoy. I know you will have a brill time. The apartments are alright... they are self-catering so there is no kettle you have to use a saucepan and boil your water but that's not a problem... some people were telling me and my mother there was no hot water but we have never had a problem like that!

Myself my 2 sons (11 and 16 and 3 other 16 year olds). Apartment was very basic, clean and tidy, cleaners came in most days to tidy round, make beds (not wash up though, but did put it away if we washed up). Towels were changed 4 times in 14 days. Pool side and bar were ok. Some really nice staff work there, very pleasant. Domingo, well what can I say..... very good entertainer with kids and adults. Plays water polo, pool games, karaoke, and shooting (be warned though the target is well out lol) The apartment is 164 steps down to the town which is not that bad really.... if you have a safe make sure that you keep the receipt as it's the only way you get your deposit back as mine disappeared out of the apartment... Lots of nice places to visit in town, we spent lots of time at Tropicans bar....kids entertainment from 8.30ish for an hour. All in all the holiday was good plenty of sun made lots of new friends and would deffo go back to Puerto Rico but would stay somewhere different. Only bad comment is the fact that the first week there they were doing building work nearly every day and the one lift was out of use and the other kept breaking down. Not good when you're on a high floor.

Great week but in the aspro book it said it was 600 metres from the beach but it was more than 1 km. We had to hire a car to get up and down the hill because I have a bad back. And I've been there before at the Rio Pedres and it was further away from the beach than the Castillo del Sol. As stated in the book it was about 1000m (1km) from beach.

The Castillo del Sol was a complete waste of money!! The entertainment others are raving about was non existant, a few games of bingo the first few days, to win a bottle of cheap plonk!! Then after that we were left listening to the same mix tape... which got very annoying! Showers in rooms, flooded the whole apartment and stayed warm for a max of 2mins... cooker was wired faulty, we ended up with electric shocks everytime we touched it.... maintenance guy was the only person worth a mention... always handy for an extra towel when the maids failed to leave any clean ones!!

We had a great week at the apartments, very frendly staff, and the pool bar was very reasonable. You have a few steps down to the shopping centre, but the taxi back is very cheap, great views of the bay and the centre. The rooms are clean and all have a balcony that catches the sun.
