5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2013 via mobile

Have stayed at Gran Sol Ibiza for 5 years running now and could never fault the friendly staff or the general hotel quality.
Ideally placed so that clubbers can access San Antonio's haunts and in easy reach of the lively West End. A taxi ride will take you to Den Bossa where the mighty Ushuaia and Space are.
Will accept room only bookings for those who never make breakfast ...
Highly recommended and many thanks to all the staff.

Went here in August and had a great time at this hotel, 2 mins walk to Buddha bar on the Sunset strip (my fave bar!!) and right near Kanya!!
Great pool and outdoor jacuzzi, good amenities, cheap cocktails and beers, rooms are cleaned everyday, all rooms have air con and a good safe in each room, all with flat screen TV's and english channels, all in all it was a pleasant stay, would go back again.

Room Tip: We stayed in 114 but if you stay in 116 you will have a Pool view!

First of all can I thank the hotel Manager , Jose Prats Cardona and his wife , also the staff especially Rosi Prats Prats. I had an incident at the hotel on my last day at the hotel , Initially I was angry but the Hotel team helped me and gave the information I needed and bent over backwards to help me , which they did not have to do. Which I do thank them very much.This was a family run hotel clean, modern, air con , open and roomy . staff on reception friendly and helpfull and desk manned 24 hrs , Reception has seating in and comfortable for those waiting to return home , hotel also has toilet and shower rooms and comp towels for people to get ready in. ( bonus already ) Luggage drop area in a room ( Jose we wont dwell on this.. Ha Ha )
Bar area with seating more than enough, great service from staff who look the part with clean uniforms everyday always ready for a chat. More than enough sun loungers for everyone, Shower facilities also for pool, Enough umbrellas also and areas of shade for the people who dont like the sun too much, Its own gardens with hut type roofs really different.
Large swimming pool , 3 sections , chilling area for talking and kids, main pool and a jacuzzi area also. Pool was always clean and no glass was allowed any were near so drinks were given in plastic cups if in pool area.
The hotel had 2 lifts, Rooms were spacious and had a modern twist to them, Electrics work on key card to operate. Had some money spent on especially the bathrooms . Sink area done in marble effect , comp toiletries , bath and shower reasonable pressure. Towels provided each day and room attended too also beds made and room swept and mopped. Air con in rooms works on sensor on patio door , so if closed will be on but open door then stops,Temp control and speed on wall. Beds were better quality than most countries I have stayed in and comfortable, Mini fridge in room also , electric points.....
The restaurant in hotel is a buffet style but gives you so much too choose from , fresh and tastey. Bar snacks available from 12 in bar area equally nice.

Overall this hotel suprised me , have been to Ibiza before and the hotels did not match up to this by no means, this is a special one !!! The staff and Manager make what it is and that stands them out from the rest. The hotel is situated also 15 mins from west end so quite on a night , but also close to the famous Cafe Del Mar / Cafe mambo just round the corner on front. Also a 10 min walk for the romantics round the bay can see the sun go down at the furthiest point and also have a drink as there is a lovely local shack with a bar.

Thankyou Jose and Rosi for your help , Please keep up the standards and I wish you and the guys also all the best for the rest of the season and into 2014.Big thanks also from my collegues who stayed there they said it was brilliant.

Well done and Many Thanks.

I spent one week at this hotel and i loved it!
It's a simple but really nice place. The service is great, specially the restaurant staff. They'r always smiling and ready to help.
The breakfast and dinner are great, with lots of variety.
The only downside is that the Wi-fi in the room was not always working properly.
Overall, it was a great experience and i'll be back to Gran Sol on my next Ibiza vacations.

We have stayed one week to this hotel and is a real value for the money.
Very clean, large rooms, double bed not twin, quite new decorated, safety deposit box included in the room price, free wifi, normal breakfast and dinner. It is very close to Mambo Cafe and Cafe del Mar, but a bit far away from the center from where you can take the bus to different locations.

What could be improved is the quality of the food,because there were many fried things and some of them from the last dinner..or at least this was my impression

Booked this based on reviews on here and we weren't disappointed. The staff are friendly, helpful, polite and can't help you enough. The hotel and rooms are clean and spacious. The pool, pool area and garden are clean and there are plenty of sun loungers, no matter what time you venture down from your room.

The location is ideal - really close to Kanya and mambos, and some lovely restaurants, and about a 10 min walk to the westend. Loads of supermarkets close by too. The actual area is pretty quiet so no loud music at night.

We arrived mid morning and whilst our room wasn't ready they provided a room for us to change in, and a room to store our bags in, so that we could go to the pool or have a walk around.

We ate here most days for lunch and the food was basic but good, and very reasonably priced.

We were here for a clubbing holiday and this hotel was fab for chilling and recuperating during the day so that we were ready for the night. In terms of other guests - there's a mix of families, couples and small groups of friends.

We would definitely go back if stopping in San Antonio.

After looking at hundreds of Hotels and staying in various different hotels in Ibiza over the years I decided to go with the tripadvisor reviews and book the Gran Sol and what a wise decision this turned out to be...On arrival in the early hours of the morning we were quickly and easily checked in and given a room on the 6th floor with sea views and a double bed as requested on booking nearly 3 months to our arrival.
The rooms are a great size, excellent bathroom, flat screen T.V, big balcony and cleaned daily.( also note no early knocking on the door by the maids which you find in most hotels in Europe.)
Pool area and grounds are spotless with plenty of sunbeds whatever time of day you fancy a dip in the lovely and inviting pool, food and drinks are also reasonably priced for Ibiza approx.3 Euros 50 for a pint of beer.
We also took out the towel hire which is excellent 15 Euros deposit for the week and you get 13 back when you leave.
I cannot mention enough how lovely and quiet the hotel is even in the high season when we were there, no noisy groups or people running through the hotel late at night, everyone is always smiling and asking how your stay is going.
We stayed on a room only basis so cannot comment on breakfast but found an excellent bar that serves full English breakfast for 5.5 euros worth remembering the name S'ancora opp the Golden Buddha bar which is an excellent and much cheaper option for sundowners all located 2 mins walk away from the Gran Sol...
We will definitely be returning to this hotel next year and would 100% recommend staying at the Hotel Gran Sol...Trust me its number 1 for a reason...Thank you to all the staff and reviewers.

Almost forget to mention the travel company we booked through made an error and informed the hotel we were only staying for 6 nights not 7 and the hotel handled this error with absolutely no fuss and contacted them for us and told us to enjoy our stay as they would look into it!!!
