We chose our favourite hotel in Los Cristianos for this trip, staying on half board package (you need to pay for all drinks even with your meals, with the exception of tea and coffee at breakfast)
The Mar y Sol is a fantastic venue for our wheelchair guests. The hotel is designed around the needs of wheelchair users, it has wonderful access in all areas. The rooms are spacious even the standard rooms which has two bedrooms and a split level wet room. Equipment hire is available from Lero which is next door to the hotel. You can hire electric beds, hoists, shower chair, cot sides. Lero also provide adapted vehicles for airport transfers and trips out.
The pool has a hoist which enables access into the pool, if guests have no weight bearing abilities, then we have found the easiest way to get people from their wheelchair is to to use the hoist from your room to transfer to the pool hoist. Everyone can have a brilliant time and use all facilities.
The food is basic but plentiful and is served buffet style. The hotel is in a good position for local walks to bars, supermarkets, although it is a good walk down to town, markets, and the beach but worth it for the bustling sights.
During our stay we visited local bars which had great entertainment including an ABBA tribute band
which we all enjoyed. Our guests had a wonderful time here socialising with others and taking advantage of shopping trips.
Some our guests on this trip have booked to go back again next year…… must be good
