Reviewed May 18, 2017

We stayed here in 2012 and enjoyed it back then. This time around, some changes were noticeable but still enjoyed it nonetheless, but not as much as before.

In 2012, we made advanced booking. This time, we walked in and we're thankful they accommodated us. We were given minimal discount.

In 2012, they offered free breakfast. This time, breakfast is sold separately, but you can ask for hot water if you brought along cup noodles or instant coffee with you and they will not charge you.

This time, we booked our island hopping tour with them and found it more reasonable than if booked by the beach. They drove us to the sand bar where we were picked up by a big banca, then transferred to a smaller banca for the island hopping tour, and then were picked up again by their service at the sand bar. Well-coordinated tour and no hidden charges (separate rental for smaller banca, etc.).

Free service to the beach when you ask, if you do not want to walk 5-10 minutes to the beach.

Old towels and linen.

Air-condition unit did not cool the whole room for the two rooms we occupied (301-302).

Water from the shower was not that strong, maybe because we were on the 3rd floor. Did not check if water heater worked. We only showered cold.

WIFI was not working during our stay.

Friendly and accommodating staff, but there was one woman who never smiled.

We loved their dog Blackie. Very friendly.

Truthfully, we keep choosing La Solana because of their swimming pool. But if we find a newer accommodation nearer to the beach with swimming pool and free breakfast, we'll reconsider.

Got online discount to stay her so did . Not to far from the beach and away from to much noise. Was a problem with main light fuse blowing when more people were there but owners sorted out quickly although happened a bit much, bigger fuse required I think. Swimming nice and clean lovely after day ripping about.
Bathroom needed some attention, towel rail just about off wall and shower didnt run very warm or well. Nothing else , overall nice hotel

My partner and I had a great stay at La Solana. The staffs are kind and well oriented. They offer a great quality service to their guest. They also offer a free shuttle or ride to the white beach since the resort is a bit far from the beach. They also offer water activities and I can say this is a nice place to stay for couples, family and friends.

DISLIKES
•water heater not working. Even the water heater is off it still produces not just warm water but boiling hot water from the shower down to the faucet
• Cant leave the aircon on while u are the beach. The key has the switch to the aircon so once u leave the room u need to turn off the a/c unless u want someone to come in ur room. So once u get back from swimming. Room very hot
•Aircon unit take atleast 5 hours to make our room cold. But still not that cold me and my girl decided to make over the room and pushed tha bed were the aircon is placed so that we can get enough comfy sleep.
• Ants were crawling our entire stay.

POSITIVE
•Friendly and courteous staff
•Pool
• Free Playing of billiards (only one cue stick, no chalk, table very dusty)
•Free ride to the beach itself and vice versa( la solana is 3-5 minutes away from the beach front.

Went there last May 5 with my family. Although not really my first time to check in to La Solana. As always, no need to book ahead of time specially if it's weekdays.

Location is far from the beach. (I think this is normal since they have swimming pool). I like the fact that they still offer pick up and drop off service going to the beach since we were with my granny last time and she can't really do long walk.

My only comment was , I think they have to upgrade or maybe renovate their bathroom. Bathroom is not well maintain. But all in all, it was OK when you're in a budget.
