Wonderful stay at Barcelo Solymar/Occidental arenas blancas feb/march 2020

I am very surprised when I read the negative experiences from this hotel. Coming all the way from Norway, my husband and I with our 2 children had an absolutely wonderful 2 week holiday here in february-march 2020. The beach and the water was really amazing, clean and nice. The staff was very friendly. The friendly gardener, who we spoke with the first day of our stay, came every morning with a fresh hibiscus flower to me and my daughter. The maid wrote friendly greetings after leaving the room nice and clean every day, and made beatiful swans and other figures with the towels. The barkeepers were friendly, and especially to our kids as they came to collect lemonade. The pools were nice and clean, and since the Barcelo Solymar is connected to Occidental arenas blancas, we had many pools to choose between - a really big, nice and clean hotel area. Especially one pool was very calm and nice if you wanted to avoid Music. The AC was working well,both in the lobby, buffet resturants and in the rooms. We stayed first in a double room, but found it a bit small for the family and changed for a small amount of money to a bungalow. Nice and clean, and always warm water in the shower, television both on ground floor and first floor in the bungalow. We mostly enjoyed eating breakfast, lunch and dinner at Occidental arenas blancas, who in our opinion had the best buffet. For breakfast, the kids entered the line to get fresh pancakes, and I started the day With a . The food in the buffet was good, but not culinaric, and you could for every meal choose between a great variety of dishes. Even the ice cream was nice, and we had no stomach issues during our stay. The first days there were a lot of young people partying by the main pool, but as there where other pools to use, this was not a problem for us. If you bring children you should water toys etc. from home, as it was very expensive to buy in the hotel shops. We would love to come back one day!
