“Excellent hotel, good location and great service. Lives up to the reviews.”
So much has been said in the previous reviews there is little else to say except trust the reviews, they are very accurate. This is a very well run smaller size hotel with high standards of service and cleanliness. It is well located with the beach, pool, sun terrace, bar/snack bar, reception and rooms all within a few steps. This leads to a relaxing holiday. We emailed before arriving to request a full sea view room on a higher floor and although this was not immediately available, we only had to make a single request at Reception to be allocated a perfect room on the 3rd floor within 30 minutes. I can not praise the hotel staff enough for the way they handled our room request.
There are not many full sea view rooms but if you can get one it is a real bonus - thanks Gran Sol we really enjoyed our room (315).
Nothing is too much trouble for the staff, service was always prompt and with a smile. The breakfast was very good and lives up to the reviews. We booked B&B because we like to eat out in the evening. We ate in the restaurant one night and it is very good value, we would happily have eaten there every evening if we had been on HB.
Prices are reasonable including the mini bar in the room, for a hotel of this standard. It is also very well located for walking to the harbour area and the numerous restautants. The beach is quite small but was never crowded and we could always find sunbeds and parasol on the beach (12 euros but worth it to be so close to the hotel). Sunbeds around the pool would have been a bit more difficullt but we were very happy with the beach.
There are a few stones/rocks for the first few metres entering the sea, but once you are beyond these, there is sand and a large area of fairly shallow calm water, it was excellent.
Rooms are furnished simply but to a high standard, were exceptionally clean and were very comfortable. Our sea view room was very quiet at night, the street view ones would have been a bit noisier.
Hotel management were very helpful arranging a late check out for us which made the last few hours of our holiday more pleasant.
We will definitely stay at the Gran Sol again and highly recommend it. It is closer to a 5 Star than the official rated 4 Star and deserves the Thomson 5 Star rating.
Full sea view rooms on the 2nd or 3rd floors are very good, with large patio doors, balcony and stun...
