“Great Hotel, Great Location”
Reviewed 20 February 2012

This is our second stay at the Solymar and again we couldn't fault it. We stayed again in a superior room on the 6th floor which gives a great view and even better sunrises and sunsets. The hotel is good value and bang in the centre of Calpe. Local restaurants serve decent good value meals and the Solymar does a great breakfast. My only negative comment about the hotel is that the Spa access is far to expensive for what it is.

We spent 2 nights here and found the hotel to be of a very high standard with great front-line views of the beach. Staff were all very friendly and attentive. Our only criticism would be that there wasn't any tea or coffee facilities in the rooms which we would have expected from this standard of accommodation. Overall a very enjoyable experience and we will be back!

If your wanting to book a cheapish holiday, but get your money's worth gran sol y mar is the place to be!!! Its On the beach front, but also got a visitors only infinity pool and bar, we found we were staying there all day..plus it's a fantastic sun catcher spot!!! ;) the staff are lovely and the breakfast is one of the best? It's in calorie which great for all te family, I suggest going to the older town, and at the top of calpe walking distance or a cheap taxi is a fantastic Chinese!!!!! Well worth the visit, also make sure u do the beach front walk to clap rock and if you keep walking the beach carries on at the other side which is lovely!! Also check out tango the beach front bar... X

yes we can make some remarks about this beautifully situated hotel. First, if you're not interested in the (more expansive) seafront rooms, you might be tempted to reserve a cheaper room with a "garden view" as we did. Be aware that this “garden” consists primarily of gravel with some plant pots at the bottom of an approximately 12-story light well on the inside. I think only as a caver you will have a nice stay there, so choose a room on the outside (or one of the top floors). The professional staff however could arrange a good switch for us, and from that moment the enjoyment started :
two restaurants with spectacular view over the sea and promenade, a sumptuous buffet, a spacious well-equipped gym, a separate pool (with limited space, but that's not a big deal in November) and the beautifully decorated and large public spaces. Also, rooms and beds were fine. And well, that when it was raining, buckets here and there were needed in the dining room did not disturb us. Not even when in our room the lamp in the ceiling started leaking water, because then we had just packed to leave. Despite this, we do certainly recommend this hotel (uh...monsoon period excepted).
