I meant to post this ages ago , but better late than never.
We were very pleasantly surprised by this lovely small hotel when we stayed there for two weeks at Easter. Our room was spacious and well furnished; public areas like the bar, lounge and dining room were bright and tasteful; and the pool area and service, including the nice jazz CD playing in the background made it our destination of choice on those lazy warm days.
All the staff were friendly and helpful, especially Miguel in the restaurant , and the food was extremely tasty and of excellent value. We were with Thomsons on a B&B basis but we ended up having dinner at the hotel most nights as it was as good or better than any of the nearby restaurants.
The only downside of our holiday , and the reason why I can't give the Gran Sol a 5 star rating is that the resort of Cala Bona is not that inspiring--small seaweedy beach, lots of cheap shops, and rather tired restaurants.
Thank goodness we were at the Gran Sol---they even sent us a CD of the poolside jazz after we returned home !
