Excellent hotel - english tv channels, free wifi, safe, shower room and lockers on day of departure

Really close to Cafe Mambo - also recommend Cala Gracio beach - super!

Recommended by the english lady that runs this hotel - first class

Top floor room - perfect views of Ibiza sunsets

Room Tip: top floor!

Just back from a week at this hotel. Staff efficient and hotel was exceptionally clean. Only problem I had with this hotel was that I found it very noisy at night, doors banging, groups of young guys shouting from balcony and other surrounding hotels that went on until early morning then the noise continued as the maids were also noisy, sounded like they trailed every bed around the hotel and talking very loud ! Didn't get much sleep!

Location of hotel is good it's very near sunset strip and about 10 mins from west end.

I dont think I would stay at hotel again due to the noise .

Booked this hotel last year largely based on Tripadvisor ratings, and it certainly paid off. Stayed early September last year.

Firstly, this hotel isn't some sort of 5 star luxury, but it offers the really important stuff when you travel to somewhere on a budget. It is clean, comfortable, safe and quiet. Many similar hotels in the price range in Ibiza and elsewhere have some sort of "catch", but this place doesn't. I can honestly say there's nothing I'd complain or grumble about. I've stayed in hotels in the UK that cost twice, three times the price of this place and are no-where near as good.

We didn't sample the food, so can't really comment there and only used the bar once, but it seemed decent. The pool was nice too, and there's plenty of space outside to relax. Location is ideal, at the north of San An, next to Cala Des Moro a small but nice beach, and next to Kanya and the start of the sunset strip if you're into that too. It's right on the edge of San An and is by the enormous piece of unused land, so it's almost separate from the town itself, so is very quiet. That said, the centre of San An is 5 minutes walk away, 10 if you take the scenic route along the front. There's a shop right opposite, and a petrol station right behind it, if like us you hire a car and need to top up before returning it. No real parking at the hotel, a few spaces by the entrance but normally in use, though this isn't an issue as there's plenty of street parking around the hotel perimeter.

Room wise, we were on the top floor, which offers some decent views. Beds very decent for the price, air con works well (and is free), bathroom clean and functional. Water pressure in the shower isn't brilliant, but this isn't the hotels fault--the island has scarce natural water supplies and tourism puts a lot of strain on the system--so think before you complain and as an aside, do think about the pollution desalination causes before having a long shower or leaving a tap running. I'm certainly no eco-mental, but it is an issue the island faces.

Contrary to what some have said, wi-fi is decent for the island, I've known worse. Again, guests should think of others and don't use torrent clients or leave things downloading as this eats bandwidth for everyone else and isn't the hotel's fault. One issue we did have last year, was the wi-fi asks you to "Like" the Gran Sol Facebook page. A clever marketing idea, and I was more than happy to play along, but it did keep asking again and again, sometimes every time you loaded a new page. I did mention this and guess it's been sorted now. I think it was just a small error by whoever set it up.

Anyway, we've booked again for this year, no other choice comes close really. Until I've got enough money to buy a villa, Gran Sol is my Ibiza home from home. Fully deserving of the high ratings on here.

Room Tip: Top floor rooms offer good views. We were on the north side, facing the hill with views over Cala De...

Excellent hotel for a relaxing holiday!

It's set a short walk from the crazy night life so it's nice & quiet. Seems to be mostly groups of twenty or thirty something's but there was a very chilled out & polite vibe.

The rooms are clean & spacious, aircon, plenty of towels & bedding, shower was great, toilet had a good flush.

Beach towels available to rent from reception so we didn't need to take any towels with us.

Plenty of sun beds, bar serving food & drink all day, really good value for money.

All the staff are really helpful & lovely.

We went half board & the food was great, plenty of choice & they serve over a few hours so you can be flexible with timings.

Really brilliant hotel & great value for money, would highly recommend it!
