Our room, view, service was really good here. The internet was dodgy, as is the case with most hotels in Southern Spain. It is not evident that breakfast can be had in the room; to date I am unaware, though this would have been ideal, as we had a lovely balcony and view, and do not eat breakfast - just... More

I loved everything about this hotel. I booked a sea-view and to my mind this is well worth the extra cost. From my balcony I couldn't see the rock, which would have made it even better, but it was still a first-class room and view. I stayed half-board and the food was absolutely delicious and in abundance. The only complaint,... More

We stayed here for three days. This hotel has spacious rooms, very kind and helpful staff and top-class food. Everything was perfect (only the check-in could be more quicker/efficient). We enjoyed the good food and the magnificent sea-view. Definitely a very good choice!

Stayed here for my wife's Birthday. The hotel has a "to die for" location, with great views over the Calpe Bay. Checking in was a little slow because the staff were meticulous over ensuring that we were fully informed where everything was and what amenities were available. The receptionist even noticed that it was my wife's Birthday and a bottle... More

I booked this hotel as it was rated #1 in Calpe which is disappointing for the remainder, The room on the 8th floor was good and the service from both reception and waiters was excellent. However, the food at both breakfast and the buffet (two nights as we went out the others) was poor, particularly the so called hot dishes... More

Visited last week. From the moment we arrived reception staff made you feel extremely special. Bedrooms are spacious, airy & clean. Breakfast and Dinner time spoilt for choice with the wonderful array of well cooked food. Restaurant staff extremely efficient and friendly, a special mention for Kristina for her efficiency both in the bar and restaurant. This hotel is fabulous... More

Wife and i stayed at the Gran Sol Y Mar for a few days at the end of march, superb location with a georgous sea view room. The restaurant Maitre d was surprisingly sullen with no greeting for some but the restaurant organisation was the worst part. I have never seen such a poor layout for food in my life... More

Very clean and everything you needed for a pleasent stay. Wifi great, bathroom very nice with plenty of toiletries and lovely large towels. Breakfast was excellent same as our previous visit, plenty... More

We needed 4 wifi passwords and this was no problem. In fact nothing was a problem, the staff went out of their way to be helpful. Location... More
