“Hotel Sol y Mar”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 September 2012

Great Hotel in the commercial area of Calpe. Close to Beach. The hotel itself is great, very clean and modern. It is located on the beach promenade so its in an ideal location to get to the beach and various shops/restaurants. We stayed in a standard room which had a view of a brick wall which was disappointing, but the staff and facilities were very good and reasonably priced. Very quiet rooms

Room Tip: dont hav estandard room . Choose one with balcony

The hotel itself is great, very clean and modern. It is located on the prom so its in an ideal location to get to the beach and various shops/restaurants. Also has a very big supermarket on the ground floor.
We stayed in a standard room which had a view of a brick wall with no balcony. I was very dissapointed with this as it made me feel like I was in a normal hotel which could have been anywhere, rather than feeling like I was on holiday. Couldnt even see the sky!
The main restaurant is very big to accomodate the amount of guests and the food was excellent. However I couldnt understand when half board that you could have free coffee/water/champagne for breakfast but you had to pay for water in the evening?
The pool didnt open until 10am (the pool is located across a path, not actually at the hotel) and wasnt really big enough for the amount of guests.
One word of warning - Kids! The hotel and pool was overun with very young kids (babies to under 10) so if you are after a peacefull time by the infinity pool, youve got another think coming!
I dont think I would stay here again, its obviously a popular hotel for the locals but was too busy for me.

Calpe is really nice and warm city with lovely pubs and restaurants. The sea is warm and the beach is next to the hotel and is really nice. The pool is lovely and the room was clean and really modern and spacious.

We have stayed in October 2009 would definitely like to go back one day!!!

I recently stayed at The Gran Sol y Mar in Calpe, and I can say in all honesty it was a truly wonderful experience. Sumptious,luxurious and immaculate. This hotel isn't cheap, but is worth every penny. Breakfast was outstanding; there was food to suit all tastes- including champagne. I would most definitely recommend this hotel

We stayed out of peak season and got a fantastic deal with breakfast included, which is a super buffet. The staff are all very friendly and helpful and the rooms are large, well appointed with a lovely bathroom.

Room Tip: Ask for an outside facing room, the inside facing rooms look over a "water feature" which...

This is a Big Hotel on the Calpe sea frontline. The surrounding is not fantastic inserted in typical Calpe where there is agreat quantity of flats for rent. But the staff of the Hotel is very attentive to customers needs. Excellent services and facilities. Huge bedromms with large bathrooms. We enjoyed very much our stay there at half board. Excellent buffet dinners and breakfasts with view on the beach and Calpe Gulf.
