Poor reception staff

Posted Apr 26, 2014 on Hotels.com
Nice clean hotel. Good location. Good value. Reception staff however amongst the poorest I have experienced in a hotel in a long time and devalue what could be a fantastic hotel.

Great hotel, good value for money, superb location

Attended a wedding here and stayed for 3 nights. Gorgeous hotel, location is perfect, pool area fantastic and breakfast was great. My only gripe was the balcony, you had to lean over the rail to see the sea and faced onto a apartment block...I wouldn't have paid the extra if I'd known this was this case.

Posted Feb 17, 2014
Pros: Everything. Comfort, peaceful, great facilities and English TV. Brilliant
Cons: Slightly disappointed with reception staffing. A couple of times I was kept waiting at reception. Desk should have been monitored to provide help.
Location: Beach side location. Handy for promenade. Great restaurants around and about.
Fantastic all round holiday at this hotel. Ultra modern lounges and bedrooms. Glorious breakfasts, hot and cold food and Cava. Lovely Spa pool and sun bathing area

Great hotel and holiday experience!

Posted May 2, 2013
Pros: location, and service were great. Decor was top notch, and breakfast was very good.
Cons: higher fee than we would have expected as a guest to use the indoor pool. There is however an outdoor pool available for no charge, weather permitting
Location: Location is on the beach, as well as on the main shopping street for the town. Very convenient.
We spent 3 nights at the Sol Y Mar Gran Hotel. Although we hadn't booked a sea-view, when we arrived we were cheerfully greeted and given a room on the 8th floor near a corner, which had a balcony with a great view of the sea and surrounding hills. The room was spotless, and the bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was great, with a large buffet, made to order omelettes, and numerous choices of juices, fruit and baked goods. Service was always cheerful and accommodating. We ordered room service 2 of the evenings we were there. The food was good, but a slightly more larger menu would have been appreciated. Location near the beach and main street of Calpe was perfect! There was also a large grocery store underneath the hotel, which was convenient for snacks and other items. Would certainly stay here again, and highly recommend to our friends.

we were very disapointed inasmuch as the hotel advertised that WI-FI was readily available throughout the hotel, and IT WAS`NT. This was one of the main reasons for us booking this hotel, as we wanted to stay in touch with our families throughout the holiday period. We complained to the reception staff on two occasions, but they were not able to do anything.

Comfortable hotel

Posted Jun 9, 2008
Very large room, comfortable bed and impressive sea view. The room quality made our holiday. Hotel was spacious and the breakfast was excellent. I liked free Wi-Fi internet which even worked from my balcony. Staff tried to be helpful and was extremely friendly. A nice touch was some complimentary drinks in our room fridge ready for us on our arrival. There were a few rough edges. The design of the shower caused a slight leak onto the shower floor. The glass divider between our balcony and the next was sligthly cracked. A draw in the room was badly designed making it possible for some small items to fall behind a ridge and be misplaced. It usually took over a minute for reception to answer a telephone call made to them from the room. Sometimes we were cut off while attempting to telephone reception. An impressive array of lifts, but no indicator to tell you which one is coming/has just arrived. The evening meal was nice but portions were rather small. It is annoying you have to pay to use spar. Our safe in room was faulty. Staff remedied this by opening safe in our absence and leaving our valuables unsecured. Although nothing was missing from our valuables, the staff did not exercise common sense by opening safe when we were not present. The hotel is situated at the bottom of a hill. A lot of the shops are at the top. The exit procedure from the hotel car-park demanded a science degree to make it work.
