I had the fortune of staying at this charming but out of the way hotel when it opened and I thought it was one of Europe's great Destination Hotels. Well 10 years later, things have changed...
I was appalled at the condition of this hotel as it was absolutely filthy, worn out, scratched, broken, mildewed, unkempt and not suitable for any 5-star Hotel in Europe. Shame on Huse Hotels for allowing this once GEM to become an ugly duckling. The hotel is under staffed, the breakfast buffet is deplorable and the hotel allows locals to use the beautiful stainless steel pool (one of-a-kind) and facilities for a fee. The service was quite friendly but clearly understaffed as waits for drinks or meals by the pool were far too long. The view is still magical but this lady has faded. The hotel no longer offers complimentary shuttle service so if you want to go into town, plan in advance, order a cab 30-minutes before you want to go, and be prepared for a 20 to 30 euro ride each way... My pictures will show why this hotel has faded but I had spent 3 nights at the Hotel Majestic prior to this stay which was brilliant and I was so looking forward to a return at Gran Florida and left with the utmost of true disappointment...BEWARE!
