There is nothing wrong with the hotel - the rooms are a bit dated and I did think the bathroom could have been cleaner - glass tiles as a shower curtain were not clean - water stains and splashes ( not by us, but previous occupiers). Main gripe is the attitude - clearly the hotel's location will keep it filled but the staff /owners are CHARMLESS.
Our electric went off for the first 3 nights of a 4 night stay - no lights or air con etc, no apology whatsoever, in fact they just shrugged their shoulders, after 3 nights they got someone to look at the air con and we moved rooms ( we had to move ourselves though!) and the rooms we were offered were of a poorer quality - we finally got a nicer room - but with twin beds instead of a double.
We only had drinks at the hotel the waiters are surly and grumpy - they clearly do not enjoy their jobs and the bar prices are astronomical hence why we did not make a habit of drinking there. We chose the hotel as it had a pool, however the pool area was not kept too clean and the were a couple of cats who used the pool as drinking water. There is a pension just behind the hotel and the owner of that seemed lovely - good cafe as well- I wish we had stayed there instead - half the price and run by someone who wants to be hospitable.
Not once did we get a welcome smile or casual 'hello' they are all grumpy as hell in Gran Sol hotel, very unusual for Spain.
