Our experience in The Gran Hotel Solymar was wonderful. We were there for a family wedding. I couldn't speak highly enough of the hotel. Everything was perfect. Fabulous breakfast every morning. Pleasant and highly experience staff, every wish granted.Comfortable beds in spacious rooms. Top marks from us. Wedding guests.

This hotel was excellent! The junior suite was luxurious and big with a beautiful sea view! The breakfast was excellent with the women at egg station one of the best omelette makers I've ever come across! Lunch and dinner were buffets and always a delight!

Our room was lovely on the side facing the sea. A reasonable size of room and a lovely bathroom. However unfortunately we arrived at the beginning of the European school holidays and it was overrun with families and children. Since we are an older couple and enjoy adult resorts we would never have come to this particular hotel at this... More

Starting summer time in Calpe! The hotels location is super, it is clean and food was excellent But: only a few member of the staff knows more english words than five!

I spent four days as a solo traveller here this time after having been previously with my partner. Whilst the many good points are still there like spacious rooms and shower cubicles along with lots of toiletries, my poolside experience was awful, much like a Spanish holiday camp.
