Just got back from a very relaxing week away. We booked a junior suite for some extra space as we travelled with our toddler. The hotel attracts older couples more than families with children (at least at this time of year), but the staff really went out of their way with our daughter. We were on half board and therefore...

If you are allocated a room that is directly opposite the noisy building site, then you get a shock. Noise, dust, and no chance of moving away to another room, is what you will get. Its sad, because the hotel is really excellent. The views are spectacular and the service good. An odd thing. I took to the hotel, a...

This is a small, friendly and clean hotel situated in the small area of Cala Bona. We stayed for a week at the beginning of April 2016 so a few bars and restaurants were still closed. The hotel is a very short walk from a small harbour in one direction and Cala Millor in the other direction. There is a...

Booked this as a last minute holiday with my boyfriend in August. Hotel was well placed by the beach and within walking distance of Cala Millor and Cala Bona. We were a little disappointed by Cala Millor as it was very Brits Abroad. Cala Bona was a little better, but we struggled to find an authentic Spanish restaurant. Facilities in...

We enjoyed most aspects of our holiday. The hotel was very comfortable and kept spotlessly clean. The staff were all very friendly and as helpful as they could be. However, the hotel is taken in its entirety by Thomson. What they fail to mention on their website, is that once you have booked you cannot move you are stuck with...

I was not going to bother to review this hotel but then read what I consider to be very misleading comments by some reviewers about the food. The hotel overall is excellent, but like some others, we were disappointed with the food, especially after so many good reviews. It is not that we were eating in a different hotel as...

We visited here again on the 27th September, staying for a week - our fifth visit since 2012. It’s only possible to book the hotel through Thomsons, but bookings can be done independently for the Gran Sol apartments next door. I’ve never seen the hotel as busy in our previous visits. In particular, the restaurant was full in the evenings....

I was very impressed with the Gran Sol with the staff the quality of the food and the hotel in general.Reading an earlier post giving a negative view on the food I thought the reviewer must have stayed at a different hotel to me. Firstly for a 4* hotel I thought the breakfast was very comprehensive a selection of cold...

My wife and I stayed here for 10 days from mid September. I had intitially requested a room at the back of the hotel overlooking the beach, but was given a side room which still had a sea view. The hotel did try and accommodate us a week later but we decided to stay put as our stay was nearly...
