“Great, relaxing stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2012

This hotel can only be recomended to all sorts of travellers. We booked the hotel for a few days to relax and enjoy the sun.

As from the check in to the check out we felt really welcome. The hotel has everything you need: a nice bar, big pool, good restaurant and big breakfast buffet.

The location is good because you can drive or walk to the beach, use your car to explore the area, ... the parking is free of charge and safe to leave you car.

Thank you again to all staff for this great week of holiday.

We visited Marisol in September 2011.

Not extremely luxurious but very special.

Excellent service, the staff are extremely friendly and helpful.

The rooms had two terraces with table and sun loungers. Ideal for relaxation. The interior of the room was nicely decorated.

Breakfast was amazing: buffet style with plenty of choice.

There are two pools, the gardens are beautifully maintained.

The hotel is out of town. Its about 15 minutes walk to the beach and local Restaurants.

We spent a weekend at the Marisol in Calpe Spain. The room, meals, location and most important of all, the customer service was excellent.
Breakfast was buffet style with plenty of choice including bacon eggs and sausage, freshly cooked on request.
We decided to have evening dinner in their restaurant on the Saturday night and we were not disappointed. Good menu and extensive wine list. Good food and excellent service..
We will definitely return.

We stayed 7 nights B&B in late July. Cannot compliment the staff enough. Not often you get a hug and embrace from the girls on check out so it was actually quite sad to leave.

The facilities were also first class. Dont go here if you want floor shows etc this place is designed for you to relax. 2 great little children s pools and i guess a smallish adult pool.

Price wise i d say fair enough. The restaurant at night is more expensive than down the sea front but it s a far better quality. Ditto for the daytime bistro. Great cocktails.

All in all....i d say 9 out of 10. And i m saying that as a married father with a 2 year old.

Nice atmosphere. Beautiful garden. Modern and clean rooms. Beds bit too hard.
Staff was very friendly (minor was that the staff almost didn't speak English)
Food was not so good for a four start hotel. Problem is that outside the hotel it was even worse. So don't expect gourmet candlelight diners.

A hotel that is a refreshingly different option from the highrise blocks of flats and hotels that dominate the area...we stayed for the Easter weekend with our two very young children (2 yrs and 9 months) . The hotel itself is situated in a residencial area of the town which is very peaceful but still within easy walking distance of the beach. The rooms are well decorated and we had two terraces to relax outside equiped with table, chairs and sun loungers. The food at the restaurant is good (not outstanding) and it is value for money - we took the set menu which had three courses for 20€. There are two pools and the kids one is excellent for very small children to paddle in. The staff are very friendly - nothing was too much for them. They really make you welcome and your stay very personal. If you are looking for a place near pubs, clubs and excitement then dont stay here - if you want a quiet, relaxing stay in a quality environment then this is a good option.

This hotel made you feel special! The rooms were comfortable but not stuffy or over the top. The main plus is the grounds and the well maintained common areas. Because the hotel is out of town and a boutique hotel without hordes of other guests, it was very easy to relax. The staff were also attentive and helpful.
