The Gran Sol rises from the 'run-of-the-mill' hotels in Cala Bona like a breath of fresh air. Modern, contemporary design, coupled with a high quality of finish and excellent service standards from the friendly staff make you feel that you are definitely experiencing the next level of accommodation within a traditional resort. Being a smaller hotel means that you are... More

Along with most other Trip Advisor comments we would agree that the Gran Sol is a top quality hotel. During our stay we found the staff to be polite and efficient, the food, especially the breakfasts, to be excellent and the dining room extremely well run. Cala Bona was rather more busy than we had anticipated but in a generally... More

Whilst the resort itself isn't exactly classy, the hotel is superb. I believe it was modernised about a year ago and the marble floors and sleek interiors should be enough to please the most discerning guests. It has a simple luxury feel to it and on walking into the air cooled lobby, you know it's a good hotel throughout. Great... More

We had read reviews on this site and I back up most of what other reviewers have said. The hotel is extremely smart, modern and has the feel of a hotel in a much more "chic" destination. Service is excellent on all accounts - waiters, concierge, cleaners. Our room was spacious with good storage. The bathroom is large, clean and... More

Having followed fellow Trip Advisor contributions for the Gran Sol for the last 6 months, I was really looking forward to my week stay in Cala Bona and was overall really pleased, and would like to thank fellow cotributors for their honest appraisal which are greatly appreciated.

We stayed at this hotel for one week in April. It is an adult only hotel and deserves its 4 stars. It was imacculately clean and the rooms were perfect. The staff were friendly and polite and could not do enough for you. We stayed on a B & B basis and there was a wide range of foods at... More

My cousin and I stayed in the Hotel Gran Sol from 4th to 11th June 2011…. not an experience to be repeated. We have visited a wide variety of hotels in Spain and won’t be returning to this one. A little shiny, clean hotel....apart from that and the young man serving in the bar area, I'm afraid that's all I... More
