This was our second visit to this hotel. Since it is the only hotel in Sant Pol there is not much choice if you want to spend some days in this beautiful village on the coast. The location is nice, up on the hill, with all rooms facing the sea. It is also used as a training facility for the University of Girona for students studying hospitality. It is a 3 star hotel but could very easily be a 4 or 5 star but it needs some major updating. The whole place is stuck in the 70’s and 80’s. The décor, the cheap plastic lounge chairs at the pool, the bar area, the dark drab breakfast room, the lay-out of the rooms, cheap partitions between balconies…. and lots more! I think the one thing that needs addressing soon is the height of the railing on the balconies; it is very low and clearly below building codes and EU standard. An accident is waiting to happen!! As mentioned, this is a training facility for students but the older senior staff is not doing much to help and educate and should all be replaced to give room for younger and more enthusiastic educational staff . The feeling of the place is like “we don’t want any changes, it’s always been like this and works well for the staff” The room comes with breakfast, a modest one! Some of the items like scrambled eggs are not refilled unless you ask for it. The products like yogurt and marmalade are the cheapest ones available. I had requested gluten free bread in my booking and on the first day I got one roll, warm on the outside, frozen in the middle. Next day they only had sweet cakes. Rooms have no facilities to make coffee or tea. There is also a restaurant, a bright airy nice room with lots of light and a view. But, all tables are laid as if they are just going to serve a 9 course gourmet dinner any time. Never seen anyone eating there. A pity breakfast is in the drab old breakfast room next to it. This hotel needs a good shake up and lots of money invested in it to develop this into what it could be.

Wow what a fabulous evening! Eleven of us were booked in here for New Year's Eve degustation. It was absolutely stunning. You can see from menu and pictures below (sorry forgot the sorbet picture) how lovely it was. With free-flowing wine and cava it was a brilliant evening. The soup was divine. It arrived with just the bowl and the little salty bits and then the soup poured over it was very tasty. All the courses were delicious. This hotel is a gem. Views over the Mediterranean and a metro station a 2 minute walk away to get into central Barcelona. Very enjoyable break.

We stayed for 4 nights during August while catching up with family. The staff were really friendly and helpful on the front desk. We had booked a room on the 3rd floor to ensure a good view. We were not disappointed. The room was comfortable and well appointed but very poorly insulated for noise from neighbouring rooms. We were woken at 2:00am by neighbours returning late and putting on their tv. The breakfast buffet was excellent, with a comprehensive spread both hot and cold. Perhaps benefiting from the fact that the hotel is attached to one of the premier catering schools in Spain. Would certainly consider using it again.

We spent 7 nights at the Gran Sol and really enjoyed it. OK so the entrance, reception and dining/relaxing areas are fine. The bedrooms are perfectly good but would benefit from a bit of updating. Great sea views from from 3rd floor balconies and lift to get you up to your room so no worry about stairs. It is a bit of a walk down to the village so not suitable for the severely disabled but well worth it when you get down there. Breakfasts were excellent, the best crispy fried eggs I’ve had in a very long time, great start to the day! Continental and bacon and eggs with lads of fresh fruit. It’s good to have a restaurant in the hotel and the waiting staff who are mainly students at the catering school associated with the hotel are a great bunch of youngsters, the only criticism is that they can be a little too eager. Interesting point, if you sign your restaurant bill to be put on your account there is an option to add a tip. They don’t have a ability to add tips so if you get brilliant service from the youngsters give your tip in cash. We will most likely return. Plenty of parking.

Stayed for few nights Nice friendly staff Food is ok, breakfast is nice but dinner a bit hit and miss -sometimes staff too eager to serve or Clear tables and it all feels a bit rushed - Dinner on couple evenings superb then average next However was not expensive so hard to rate probably a very good considering it’s 3 star rating. If the rooms were renovated this place would be a bit of a gem (minus the big hill up it !)
