We stayed at the Hotel Sol Gavilanes for 7 days in September 2014. The hotel is situated on the magnificent beach, Calla Galdana, one of the most beautiful beaches in the area. The hotel is very spacious, clean and nicely decorated. We stayed in a large Junior Suit with very comfortable beds, clean bathroom and towel change on a daily... More

Sol Gavilanes is a large hotel with friendly staff, it's in a great location and has amazing sea views. However, the rooms and restaurant are looking a bit tired and dated compared to other parts of the hotel but they were clean and comfortable. We went half board which worked very well, food was good always plenty of choice. The... More

I was after a hotel with a gorgeous beach front and I found it! We tried other beaches close by (e.g. Macarella) but Cala Galdana was more superior - cleaner, clearer water and not at all busy as the only people that goes there are those staying at hotels close by and there were not many hotels around. Food was... More

August saw our 7th visit to the hotel and probably our last. Arriving after a baby infested flight (please Thomson, offer a child-free flight option) we tried to check in. On advice from the hotel we had emailed prior to the holiday to request a higher floor to get the benefit of the view (absolutely the ONLY reason why you... More

We stayed at the Sol Gavilanes for 14 nights from 15 October – the hotel is in a spectacular location overlooking the horseshoe shaped bay. Our room was on the 8th floor and had spectacular views over the bay. We had expected a restricted view room and were delighted. The room was modern, two large single beds which were remarkably...

What a place to go to. What a perfect view and what amazing staff work at the hotel. I can not rate this hotel highly enough. I have read that the restaurant staff were grumpy? We don't agree and thought all staff were pleasant, amusing and very friendly. Special mentions to Manuel (loves a high five), Pablo, Daniel, Juanan, Isobel,... More

The Sol Gavilanes is situated in a perfect position overlooking the beautiful bay/beach of Cala Galdana. The hotel is very clean & modern. The food on the first week was very good with lots of choice, quality & well presented, but the second week was not so good. Our only downside was the grumpy restaurant staff and the fact that...
