“Alison 2012.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

My husband and i regularly stay at the Hotel Gan Sol for a weeks holiday. The rooms are spotless as is the hotel. Included in your room is a fridge and safe (which you do not have to pay additional for). All staff are very helpful and friendly. The pool and new hot tub are sparkingly clean and the gardens are beautifully maintained. The location is brillant as it is a short walk to the Sunset Strip. Infact if you leave the hotel and cross the road you get the best view of the sunset from the prom. The hotel is very quiet during the day, which is lovely as you would expect it to be crazy busy noisey for being so close to "where it all happens"

Room Tip: All rooms are of the same standard. However the rooms over looking the garden would be quieter than...

We stayed at the hotel for 5 nights in the last week of party season. The room was much larger than we were expecting with a huge bathroom to match and great water temperature. The front desk staff were very polite, the buffet breakfast was excellent and the hotel is walking distance to Cafe Mambo (awesome drinks venue) and supermarkets, restaurants etc. Great value for money, would definately recommend to friends and stay there again. The only downside was the weather - rain, rain and more rain!

This is a great hotel in Sant Antoni, Ibiza. We booked 4 rooms for 8 pax and reservations was very smooth. Gran Sol is very affordable, clean and staff is very helpful. Choices during breakfast was very good. I suggest you add a few Euros for this.

Location is also very good as it is a short walk to Cafe del Mar and Cafe Mambo. Would definitely recommend this hotel

Room Tip: Pay Extra for Breakfast. Try to get the highest floor. View is very nice.

Great hotel and great value. I travel a lot on business and can be picky - but I would be more than happy to stay at the Gran Sol anytime. From start to finish, the family run style shines through. All staff are friendly and efficient. The hotel is kept very clean and is very well maintained. We stayed at the end of the summer season, but everything was very well kept. We took the B&B option - standard buffet breakfast with plenty of choice. Bar snacks and drinks are great quality and value (cocktails half the price of the sunset strip bars). Nice swimming pool and lawned gardens with plenty of sun beds. Pool/beach towels at a small fee. The locality is quiet, with more locals' apartments than hotels. Sunset strip is 5 to 10 minutes walk, with Cafe Mambo, Cafe del Mar etc. Main town is a little further, easy 10 to 15 minutes. Local small supermarkets across the road or 2 minutes away.
I can honestly say I do not have a single negative comment. This was my second stay at the Gran Sol and there's every chance I'll be back there for some early or late summer sun next year!

Room Tip: There are rooms with sea views, but if you don't get one the alternative street side of the hote...

I went with my grown up daughter having booked through a booking agency, don't, they had hidden charges, book direct. Firstly we had amazing weather - it was over 30 degrees every day 2nd - 9th Oct 2012, much hotter than we were expecting, other regular guests said it was freak weather. We only had to wear cardis late at night on a couple of occasions.
The hotel is very clean and looks very new despite its age. I mailed ahead to ask for a twin room and a seaview, they were unable to manage the twin beds on arrival but we were swiftly moved next morning to a larger family room overlooking the pool. All rooms have free safety deposit boxes, a decent sized fridge and air con. Wifi is dodgy throughout the hotel, you need to be close to the router on each floor, but at least its free, unlike in the UK! We hired our pool towels for €15 - you get € 13 back on safe return. That saved an awful lot of space in our cases. Nicely mixed clientel, OAPs on extended breaks and young clubbers doing the end of the season. We were only disturbed once in the early hours and a call to reception sorted that out promptly. We were told the hotel will remove noisy guests.
The pool area was excellent, newly surfaced and a jacuzzi added. There are cushioned beds round the pool and in a lawned area. Plenty of room in October! the only drawback for me was the pool temperature - freezing! The bar and cafe are next to the pool and serve snacks til 3.15pm, an omelette and salad was €4, a can of diet coke was €1.95 and beer was €3 a pint. excellent prices for a hotel.
We stayed B&B, breakfast was good, a buffet of cooked and continental. We tried the evening buffet at €10 - it was very popular - but found it was just too much to eat in the evening, we preferred a snack in a bar!
We spent many evenings in and around Cafe Mambo watching the sunset. You can take your own drinks onto the rocks and listen to the music for free or take a a seat and a small bottle of San Miguel €6! but worth the people watching experience. We also enjoyed the Golden Buddah bar close to the hotel which has sofas and great sea views. Beer €3 a pint. Good, cheap bar meals there too. Plenty of bars and restaurants nearby and reception told us which supermarket to use - 5 minute walk.Taxi was €30 to airport. We loved it so much I've already booked again for next June with husband this time.

Room Tip: The top two floors have a seaview and a sunset over the pool. Lower floors have a seaview towards Ca...

I went to Ibiza on 14th until 21st and it was my first time! This hotel should be more than a 2 star. We opted for breakfast which was an amazing buffet style offering full fry up, yogurts, fruit, pastries, cereals, juices and drinks. The staff are so friendly and helpful. Helped us with the best restaurants and how to get where we needed to go. The location is perfect. Right round the corner from the sunset bars. You can take a nice stroll by the sea and watch the sunset or eat at cafe del Mar. I recommend Mint Bar. About 10 mins from the west end and marine harbour. It is not noisy at the hotel at all but when we went out in San Antonio we didn't have to catch a taxi at all (and we were wearing heels!!) I love it and we're already planning next year!
