Hotel Gran Sol Y Mar

Thinking of staying at Sol Y Mar next March. There are lots of mentions of the fine dining restaurant, but is there a more ordinary restaurant as well?

We are planning to stay for two weeks, so while fine dining is lovely once or twice it would be a bit much every day.

Also as a resort will calpe be very shut down in March?

I know there's a coffee shop/snack bar on the ground floor level of Sol Y Mar it's situated next to the supermarket within the complex....not sure about the hotel facilities though, sorry.

Calpe is a working town so doesn't really shut down at all, maybe a few frontline bars and restaurants. On the whole the place always has a great atmosphere for most of the year.

The weather usually picks up nicely during march so again you should find it quite pleasant.

You've picked a great hotel, right on the seafront and very easy for the town center shops, walks and restaurants.

I hope you have a great time when you get here.

Thanks for your reply - that's really helpful. Someone kindly sent me a message to say there is a buffet restaurant which will be a good standby if we don't want to go out.

You have given me confidence in Calpe, we stayed in Nerja a couple of years ago and that was definitely better for being a proper town rather than entierly tourist based when visiting in the quieter months, so I imagine that same will apply for Calpe.

I can't wait to get there!

Glad to be of help...You'll be spoilt for choice as far as eating out goes (if you need a change from hotel) there's so many places to choose from.

Anything else you need to know just ask away lol. Lovely sunny day here today!

Hi Vivliv...not sure to be honest about dress code for the Sol Y Mar but I would imagine you won't be able to wear beachwear in the hotel restaurant areas. I think they'd at least expect you (as you say) to wear a cover up, sarong etc. I'm sure you wouldn't need to be formally dressed just for breakfast though.

Mercadona supermarkets hand out tee-shirts to people if they're in beachwear if they don't they are asked to leave! Most indoor restaurants wont allow bare chested men in either....maybe someone else will see your post and help you more than I can.

Have a great holiday when you get here.
