We had a fine time there. Almost everything is Dutch, what is especially fine for the children. Had many friends there. Houses are cleaned every day and friendly staff. We certainly go there again in the future to (and yet again in bungalow, my preference is for the apartments). The only small minus was that animation in the evening was not outside but inside. We are already so often inside in the Netherlands so we stayed on our own outside.
To escape the bad weather I fled with our youngest 14 yr old daughter to Barbacan. Heard a lot of good stories and must say that they are true. Rooms are excellent, neat and clean, great balcony view on the swimming pool. We had breakfast there which was excellent. We didn’t dine there: far too chic. Often went to ‘Broodje Amsterdam’. I missed music by the pool especially in the evening. Animation in the evening was inside which was a shame, therefore, we didn’t go. What actually annoyed me was that at 9 o'clock in the morning ALL the sun beds had towels on them. At 9am the pool opened and Yes all the Dutch had their reserved sun beds, this said I would definitely go back again.
Sol Barbacan was certainly to our wishes. Returned today after a 14 day holiday and we have chosen this apartment after the good reviews on Zoover. We had a 2 room app which was well kept. Bathroom with bath and beautiful sink. No dirty or worn edges or seals. LCD TV with Yes, NED 1, 2, 3 RTL 4, 5 and 6 SBS and a few of other channels which we didn’t watch. This was unexpected but very pleasant. Large balcony with 2 sunbeds and table and 4 chairs. Kitchen block was also to our satisfaction, microwave, coffee machine, electric kettle, fridge, 2 ring electric stove and all kinds of kitchen utensils, fairly complete! In addition, the app was mopped every day, bed and towels changed when you wanted. Also beach towels! Swimming pool very nice and every evening a Dutch animation team. Reception also spoke English. Certainly no nuisance from young people and radios.15 min walk to the beach. Simply good
