Hotel Gran Sol
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 July 2014

This was our third year running staying at the Gran Sol and we could not recommend it highly enough. The reception staff were once again extremely helpful, accommodating our numerous amendments to our reservation and as a returning customer we were allocated our requested rooms. The hotel was once again clean, well-kept and perfect for our short trip.

If you are looking for a swanky, over-priced hotel with spa etc then the Gran Sol is probably not for you. However, if you want a prime location near to sunset strip (close enough to the action without being noisy and full of drunkards), clean and refreshing pool with plentiful sun loungers and a decent full breakfast (although it only runs to a reasonable 10.30 am, meaning you have to get up and out) then we could not recommend this hotel more.

We were slightly later in the season this year and noticed there was an increase in Stag and Hen parties making the hotel a little busier than our previous visits, yet there was still a slightly reserved attitude and I would not recommend the Gran Sol if you are looking for an all-day rowdy pool side party. The increased numbers did mean the poolside bar and kitchen was a little stretched at times but we later found out they were missing bar staff due to unforeseen circumstances. Poolside food range has increased however remains fairly basic, such as burgers; sandwiches and omelettes. If you are looking for more choice, Kazbar just round the corner is highly recommended.

The Gran Sol is a great find in the middle of the madness of San Antonio and we thank all the staff for another fabulous holiday.

I loved this hotel as it was extremely clean, the staff were so friendly and helpful and it was a great price

the only things I felt let it down was the wifi in the room was crap it kept working for a few minutes then stopping for hours so if they could fix that they would be an amazing hotel. oh and the buffet food could have been better had a look a few nights but decided to go elsewhere, also if they introduced a healthy salad that you could order from the bar outside of the buffet times it would be amazing!

still cannot wait to come back !!

Stayed at the Hotel Gran Sol for a week, with a stag do arriving during the middle 3 nights. Was impressed by just how CLEAN the hotel is, it is immaculate. Rooms were cleaned/towels changed daily and the cleaning staff we're very nice and friendly. The reception staff bend over backwards to help, as do the bar staff. The hotel is in a great location if a base in San An town is what you want, and is moments from Cafe Del Mar etc which is just a short trek across the dirtpath opposite the hotel. I would stay here again if I were to stay in the area again. The only flaw is that the walls seem to be very thin, and I could hear the lads (not in my party) being noisy at all hours of the day and night, which was unfortunate :( PS: Safe, air con in the room, and shower room for when you leave are all very much appreciated!

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view room if possible, otherwise you will be facing the road.

We stayed here in a group of 5 from 28th June - 4th July aged 19-21 on half board basis. We were all blown away by how clean and modern this hotel is! Ibiza is a gorgeous island and Gran Sol made it that extra bit special - we will definitely be returning!

Location
We landed in the evening and our taxi to the hotel cost 36EURO. The hotel is about a 10-15 minute walk from the bus station, 10 to the West End, 2 minutes from a lovely beach and has plenty of shops, bars of restaurants surrounding. Ask at reception for direction to Cala Gracio, it's a beautiful beach about 10-15 minutes and is definitely worth the walk!

Hotel
We were originally given room 110 but wanted a sea view so we asked to be switched to a higher floor - they moved us into 301 without any problems which was perfect and very private. Cannot express how pleased we was with the rooms and pool area - Spotless and so modern! Beds were very comfortable and maids cleaned the bedroom every day. We were always happy to go back to the hotel as it's so relaxing, welcoming and pretty.

Food & Drink
I'm a very fussy eater and must say I wasn't crazy on the breakfast & dinner menus, but the rest of the group absolutely loved what they had to offer so just depends on personal preference. On the other hand, the cocktails we're delicious and the bar staff were fantastic - very friendly and helpful.

The staff here were lovely apart from the blonde lady on reception who was very rude to my friend over a misunderstanding with check out times - she could of handled the situation a lot better! Although the rest of the team were fantastic and very helpful.

The wifi is slow but does work if you give it a chance. I took it as a luxury and was just pleased I didn't have to pay for data to get my Instagram fix!

This is a fantastic hotel with great management who really go above and beyond to offer a relaxing and enjoyable trip. This is my second time in Ibiza - will definitely not be the last and think Gran Sol will always be our base on future trips. You will not regret choosing this hotel!

Room Tip: 301 - great view (although can't see the sunset).

Went here with my boyfriend this summer and had the most amazing experience. The staff at reception were perfect and very helpful (I recommend you buy a bottle of water from there when you arrive as its so much cheaper than anywhere else) and we checked in and out quickly and also looked after our passports for us. The food was great, breakfast was perfect and dinner also. We ate a few times at the cafe which was great value and the lasagne was beautiful! The bar staff were very professional and friendly and really made us feel welcomed. Great service from them.
The room was perfect and cleaned every day with new towels also.
It was perfect for us as we wanted to party a little but didnt want a rowdy hotel. Hotel Gran sol is in a perfect location (10 mins from bus station and 10 mins from west end) but not too central so it was very quiet and we were not disturbed. Taxi from the centre is about €6 and great bars are just around the corner including cafe mambo and sunset strip. Also about 5 mins to the beach.
Couldn't fault this hotel it was perfect and we would definitely come back!!!

Room Tip: our room 423 was perfect, great view and huge bed

I have just returned from my third stay at Hotel Gran sol. The location is great, a few minutes walk from the nearest beach which is rocky and about a 20 minutes walk to more sandy beaches and just a 10 minute walk from the sun set strip. The hotel is very clean and the staff are really helpful and friendly; they are always willing to help! There are lots of nice places to eat very close by and the bar and restaurant in Gran Sol are really good too.
I would always recommend this hotel and love staying here. I miss it already and can't wait to be back again soon. Thank you Hotel Gran Sol!
