We were looking for a good hotel in a quiet area of Mallorca and thanks to the reviews we read on Tripadvisor we found this gem. I have never written a review before even though I use this website a lot. The Gran Sol was so good that I had to leave a review.
We booked two adjoining rooms direct with the hotel so that my daughters 12 and 15 could have their own room. When we first arrived we were disappointed to find that the rooms were at the back of the hotel looking over the street. I asked if there were any sea view rooms available but the hotel was full. Also the sea view rooms dont have connecting doors.
Actually we quite enjoyed sitting on our balcony in the evening watching the people strolling along the street below. The balcony got the afternoon sun which allowed us to dry out towels etc at the end of the day.
The rooms are very comfortable, good size beds. The double bed is actually 2 single beds pushed together. Nice bathroom with powershower.
The food is unbelievable... breakfast to cater for every taste ... eggs and bacon are cooked to order. We booked bed & breakfast as we were planning to eat out some nights. We ended up eating in the hotel every night because the quality and variety of food was so good. With two fussy eaters in our family the buffet style meant they could try different types of food which they would not normally choose at a normal restaurant. By the end of the week we had all tried just about everything on offer.
There is a good size pool ... we had no problem finding loungers at 10.00 am. The beach is right outside the hotel with plenty of beds and umbrellas. The bay is very calm and great for snorkelling. Crystal clear water
In Cala Bona there is a diving school called Albatross. The staff there are very friendly and we went scuba diving on several days.
We are planning to go back next year
