We have just returned from a weeks stay at the Gran Sol hotel in Cala Bona and would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a relaxing peaceful stay in a lovely hotel. The hotel is spotless, the rooms are spacious and well-equipped and the air-conditioning is fabulous - quiet but it works! As the hotel is small the ambience... More

Stayed for a week half board, it was great, everything was neat and tidy, food was plentiful and varied. The staff were very friendly and very helpful if you asked them something. There is a great roof pool not so big but with a juccuci and a small gym. There are sunbeds on the roof and it was never full... More

Having recently stayed at the Gransol we found most of the facilities of a standard expected of a 4star hotel. However we were extremely disappointed to find that although the hotel had a no reserve sunbed rule they in no way implemented this. To ensure you had a sunbed it was necessary to get up before 7am and some people... More

Take your alarm clock and set for 6.30 if you want to have a sun bed by the pool. We expected to be able to have a sun bed and umbrella after selecting a 5T rated Thomson hotel without having to get up early to do so. Management should take note that this what most people expect for a relaxing... More

Stayed here mid-July The Hotel was very clean and contemporary. Had a room on the side of the hotel with a lovely sea view. Rooms very nice and clean and with good air con. My one teeny tiny little gripe would be that the bath towels could have been bigger, but that's just my personal preference and this was partly... More

Fabulous Hotel.. staff couldn't have been more helpful.. everywhere spotless ( but would expect in a 5star hotel anyway) Could have done with a bit more entertainment in the evenings but overall I couldn't fault it. Unfortunately the beach didn't live up to the same standard as the Hotel which was a shame considering the location of the property... but... More

Stayed in late July for 2 weeks full board. Mealtimes were great, with spotless surroundings and a huge choice of hot & cold buffet food -with an element of this cooked to order by the excellent cook, Maria Angeles, in front of you at the counter. Air conditioning was fantastic and awesomely quiet. Everywhere was very, very clean and the... More

Spent 2 weeks here to relax and recharge our batteries Clean, quiet and comfortable hotel with just 58 rooms. We never joined the early morning towel laying brigade who exist wherever you go and always found a space around the pool even when we went down as late as 1030, suppose it just depends on the guests at the time...

Had a 10 day break at Gran Sol at the end of June. This is a first class hotel in a central location and right on the beach. We stayed b&b and the breakfasts were excellent with bacon and eggs cooked to order. It's a small hotel with plenty of room around the pool and in the gardens and terraces.... More
