Gran Hotel Sol y Mar

Gran Hotel Sol y Mar is an adults-only hotel in the bustling town of Calpe on the east coast of Spain. The hotel has a modern look with minimalist interiors and pops of colour in the architecture. The rooms overlook the Mediterranean Sea and palm tree-filled coastline. Arenal beach is steps from the hotel where you can relax on the soft sand or go for a swim in the cooling waters. Calpe town is a short walk away and has plenty of local attractions, shops and restaurants to explore. Life at the hotel centres around the outdoor swimming pool, with a terrace dotted with loungers. You can swim or relax in the sun or the shade. If you fancy a change of scenery, you head to the shoreline. The area is known for its abundance of marine life, so snorkelling and scuba diving are popular activities to try. The hotel has a gym if you want to stay fit during your stay. For unwinding and recharging, you can visit the hotel's spa where you can choose from a range of massages and beauty treatments including manicures, pedicures and make-up application. There's also a sauna and Turkish bath for your use. Gran Hotel Sol y Mar also has four bars, including a sports bar, where you can pick up drinks to enjoy on your sun lounger during the day. There's a buffet restaurant that offers a variety of food for breakfast, lunch and dinner and two A la carte restaurants that are open for lunch during the peak season, as well as for dinner throughout the year.

Arenal beach, where you can soak in the views of the mountainous Mediterranean coastline, is right next to the hotel. The centre of Calpe is a short walk of 1km away and has a wide selection of restaurants serving authentic Spanish food such as tapas dishes and seafood paella, as well as international cuisine. If you want to discover the nightlife culture of the region, you can drive 21km to the heart of Benidorm. Here, you'll find a range of clubs, live music venues and karaoke bars to visit. During the day, you can wander through the cobbled streets of Benidorm's charming Old Town, or browse the stalls at one of the local markets. More shopping options are available at the West Beach Promenade, if you want to pick up travel accessories, gifts and souvenirs.

You can get refreshing drinks from the hotel's four bars throughout the day. One of the bars serves snacks and the beach club bar offers lunch. The main buffet restaurant has breakfast, lunch and dinner, with a variety of Mediterranean food available. For more restaurants and shops, Calpe centre is within walking distance.

If you want to stay fit during your break, you can join an aerobics class that is run regularly by the staff at the hotel.

All down hill after the Amazing Food

Jun 2022 | Bigmonster123

If the service was as good as the food you would have hit the Jackpot You have to leave deposits for puttying anything on your bill to the room, i left £200 for drinks which was quickly swallowed up with the Very Expensive costs and when it was depleted i felt very awkward and made to feel uncomfortable in front of many other Guest that you have no more money on your account. Me and my wife are very well traveled and holiday abroad at least 6 times a year and in all our destinations have Never had to pre-pay for anything billed to the room. Check in is the slowest check in i have ever experienced with many people not queuing and simply pushing in with the hotel staff saying nothing, again leaving me feel uncomfortable. Me and my wife booked the holiday purely for relaxation and we were sold on the beautiful looking infinity pool, we soon discovered that 1x its a different location to the hotel 2x you have no chance of getting a bed with endless towels on beds that are not occupied 3x no service, you have to go to the bar to get your own overpriced drink. In the evenings we spent a lot of time in the hotel reception, it was cool and comfortable with a bar, but again no service you have to go to the bar yourself. The plus side i have to be Honest is the food and choice it really is exceptional. So sol y mar please take note that if your service was as good as your food you would definitely get a five star review. I spent £1890 full board for a five night stay for me and my wife and spent well over £300 in drinks mainly water and coffee. Was it worth it NO SORRY

Perfectly located hotel on the beach with some workpoints

Jun 2022 | Tvlhove

This is a very nice hotel. The exterior may look a bit dated, but nothing like that on the inside. All of the common areas are nicely appointed in the most modern and comfortable way. The buffet restaurant serves excellent food (we had half board) and the rooms are spaceous with excellent airconditioning. There are however, some workpoints: the pool area is limited, which cannot be helped, but there were way too few umbrellas to shield from the sun (it was 35°C in the shade!). Another difficult one is the reason why breakfast outside only starts at 9… by that time it was already to hot to sit in the sun.

Great location at the start of Calpe promenade overlooking the beach and Ifach rock. Excellent breakfast choice of fresh produce cooked and show cooking omelette station. Rooms quiet (we had internal room ) and quite spacious. We stayed in November 2019 at the time of the Moors v Christian’s festival.
