We spent our holidays here and we were delighted by our choice ! Everything about this place makes you feel good. Our room was large and very comfortable for me and my family.

We booked this 5night trip through Secret Escapes and A1 Travel. We were able through A1 Travel to get the flight times that best suited us. The hotel transfers went without a hitch and the flights with Monarch landed early on both occasions. What a smart modern and superbly well looked after hotel the Gran Hotel Solymar turned out to...

We stayed in a three bedroom, 8th floor apartment with side sea views for one week! The place is huge, the balcony is huge and the views are amazing. We also had access to the infinity pool which was a nice break from the beach. We are already planning our return visit.

I stay in many hotels in business travels so I can be quite critical of hotels. However, this is a lovely hotel in a great location.

From the day we arrived we felt comfortable and relaxed. Friendly staff, immaculate rooms and very good selection of food. The pool area was one of the most comfortable pool areas we have enjoyed, with well cushioned seats and loungers, and a pool that literally overlooked the sea. We would love to go again , health permitting.

We stayed as a family for ten days in one of the apartments that the hotel offers - spacious, immaculately clean and, even on the first floor as we were, with great views from a large balcony both of the beach and the spectacular rock, the Peñon de Ifach, near the port. This was the best of the both worlds... More
