To make a small summary: this is not a top level hotel (5 star). It’s average to good (3,5-4 star). Is it a bad hotel? Certainly not, but neither is it an excellent hotel. The problem is not the hotel; it’s the expectations one has when looking at the hotel categorization. Luckily, the hotel can rely on a (in most... More

We stayed at this hotel for the first time last October and loved every minute of it. The room, the food, the entertainment and the staff were all excellent. Our son who was 5 at the time was entertained by the kids club staff who were all brilliant with the kids and also genuine. We will be returning this October.

We (two adults, two kids 8 & 10) arrived approx 8pm. We're given a complementary drink which was a nice touch. Our room was lovely. Plenty of toiletries. Two rooms, tv in kids room, they slept together on a sofa bed. It wasn't as comfortable as it should be for a ten night stay. The breakfast was excellent, loads of... More

Spent 8 sunny days at this wonderful resort in July - a couple and 3 year old daughter. I was a bit hesitant after reading some negative reviews but seriously it was amazing...some people must just love to moan! I can see how you'd find kids irritating if you want a peaceful, romantic break as a couple, but surely you... More

Just home from our fourth family visit to the Gran Castillo. Every time we have visited, there have been investments made and improvements to facilities. The staff are still excellent. Special mention to John, Sergio and Valentin in the Sports Bar and Alex and Lenny in the Kids Club. BUT ALL the staff work extremely hard and are always friendly.... More

Visited the dream palace gran Castillo hotel last year for a two week holiday. The food was amazing with different options each night in the main restaurant. The Italian and Chinese restaurants are definitely worth a visit. The room was very spacious and was cleaned daily. Very comfy beds. We spent our two weeks around the adult only pool which... More

Had a lovely honeymoon at the Gran Castillo. The wife and I were newlyweds and there was a champagne on arrival for us. It just kept getting better from there! Overall the complex was excellent if a little hard to navigate. The pools were nice and large and never overly full. The adult pool in particular was great. Food was... More
