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! That is a little problem at the restaurant, but some of the waitresses were very friendly and helpful, with better english. The black hole was the pool crew, who... More

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. I stayed over a weekend and the beach club was inundated with... More

From the moment you step inside the Sol y Mar you know you have chosen the right hotel, with it's elaborate marble reception and many leather sofas. The bar in the next room overlooks the ocean and is very beautiful and relaxing. Everything there is first class from the staff to the rooms. Guests are treated with respect and courtesy,... More

The room was lovely, clean and spacious with a great balcony overlooking the sea (paid extra). First visit arrived after a long drive but no food at the pool bar.
