I stayed for five nights while doing a course in the hotel. The hotel is lovely and my room spacious. The desk in my room was badly scuffed but everything else was in good shape. I was on a full board package and the food was great. They offered my loads of different vegetarian choices and all tasted very good. The best thing about my stay was the service - everyone was so friendly and welcoming and made me feel very comfortable as a solo traveller on this occasion.
It was just great time, weather, and hospitality. The staff were quiet friendly, hotel atmosphere is truly warm. I can just advice everyone who seeks either family/couple time. Starting from venues (beaches, restaurants) to availed transportation services, all have settled to offer unlimited comfort and joy. Kids were very happy and wanted to stay forever there. Aside to added entertainment, you will find all comfort and peace necessities to feel your amazing atmosphere. Pool was good, a bit tiny for athletes but too fair to chill. Cleanliness is met at every aspect you see and pass by. beds and room amenities were too comfy. Honestly, I can say I got not concerns. Just if could be recently built it could be the place where I'll be more and more, but since i could feel the heritage of the hotel so it's just amazing. Definitely the time we chosen was perfect, so I'd choose this hotel in Calpe again and again if my holidays came again in July.…
This was not a good experience for us. In short, the room was big but full of dust and freezing cold (we had the heater on but when it turned off, the cold came back immediately), without any work done to make the room feel cosy, the hot water did not work for days, the towels were old with stains and ruffled, breakfast was just the bare minimum and the (English style) food in the restaurant was the worst we had this holiday. The pool looked nice so perhaps in summer or with better weather the experience is less bad. The owner and staff are friendly, but not being able to shower for 3 days is not acceptable. So unfortunately and for the first time ever we decided to leave early and booked another hotel.
The Gran Sol Hotel always offers a friendly face and happy service; we turned up unannounced due to just arriving in Calpe after a trip from the Bilbao ferry on Tuesday 10 Sept. at 8pm. The weekly quiz was in full swing with many regulars taking part. We required a meal and nothing was too much trouble despite being short handed and very busy behind the bar. We enjoyed a three course set menu meal, with fresh vegetables and including a bottle of good house white wine. All for 39€ including a mineral water and two Americano coffees. Great service and value for money.
This was a marvellous hotel. Food was great, location great, staff great. The weather was horrible so thank goodness we were staying at a top hotel ideally located in Calpe to get about. The room was very nice and the bed so comfy. Would definitely go back
