We felt compelled to write this review based on the previous comments regarding room 008. We must respect everyones contributions on trip advisor however it just goes to show how peoples expectations and views can widely differ. We have just returned home today from the Gran Sol and had a fantastic two weeks holiday. This really is a beautiful hotel with great staff and great service. We stayed from the 18th of June to the 2nd of July and on arrival we were allocated room 008. On opening the door we were highly delighted. This room is on the ground floor and has a very large terrace overlooking the garden and sea. It has table and chairs with an umberella ( ideal to keeping in the shade, ) We often had lunch on our terrace delivered on a tray and handed over our wall by the bar staff . Nothing was too much trouble. It was also nice before settling down for the night to sit out and listen to the crickets in the garden and the waves crashing on the beach while having a night cap. There is also a rabbit resident in the garden who comes out at night to look around. If you do choose this hotel consider a sea view. The rooms at the back of the hotel as chosen by the previous reviewer are overlooked by the cafes and bars who play live music until midnight every night . Also you are overlooked by passers by on the main pavement area.
The breakfasts were excellent as described in previous reviews.We never ate in the hotel on an evening however everyone we spoke to said it was excellent. We tended to eat in the harbour in particular " El Pescador". We never heard anyone complain about the hotel while we were there and I find it hard to beleive that anyone would swop our room with a view ( as shown on our photos ) for the rear of the hotel, but again we are all different,
PS Please do not book room 008 as we would like to book it for 2011 !!!!! There are plenty of rooms on the back of the hotel should you wish to stay in June however you can come and join us for a drink on our terrace if you wish.
