The hotel is old and the rooms exhibit fatigue. The beds should be better. They were poor and hard. Great location and great views. Breakfast was good. The service was a bit rude, probably the staff has poor language skills.

I'm sure this hotel when it was first built it was considered first class, but not so now. It's seems it's not been updated since it was first built. The furnishings are now shabby and worn and so out of date. The staff were very pleasant and the breakfast was great, but we won't be staying there again.

Rooms are so old and very tired. Old window air conditioning units which are very loud, rooms did not appear to be very clean and this was after we asked for upgrades so goodness knows what we would have found had we not upgraded. Will certainly not stay here again.

We needed a hotel for just 1 night, working our way back to Alicante airport after a lovely few days in Moraira....so we weren't looking for anything too fancy, just clean and pleasant. Unfortunately, we didn't get it at the Tryp Gran Sol. Yes, it was reasonably priced and yes, its a good location, but thats about it. The room... More

This bedroom that we stayed in was one star standard. It was tired and dated. It was also small. The mini bar leaked so that the bedroom floor had a pool of water. When we asked if we could be moved, this was, apparently, impossible. We stayed just one night. The hotel is well located but, although we will return... More

I spent a week in this hotel with my family. The advantages of this place is mainly the location and the staff. Both were great. Just 5 minutes walk from the beach and the city centre where you have a wide range of restaurants to choose from. However, the rooms need to be urgently refurbished. My parents' room was fine,...

The hotel from outside looks grotty. The hotel reception rather nice. The staff are nice, especially the girl in restaurant, who was run off her feet. Bedroom was adequate, and the bathroom could be freshened up alittle. But the hotel in a great situation very central.

From the outside the hotel looks like a slum. Inside it is actually quite nice at reception. The rooms are ok but a bit tired. Our a/c was broken when we arrived but was quickly fixed.
