The Gran Hotel Sol y Mar is located right in the heart of Calpe, and right by the beach.
The address is Carrer Benidorm 3, 03710 Calpe, Alicante.
The GPS locator is 38 38′ 32″ N – 0 02′ 57″ E.
If you drive, unload at the front door before you park.
Our nearest airport, Alicante is under an hour away. If you fly, unless you get a REALLY good deal, we do not recommend car hire, as there is little need for a car once you arrive. Instead we suggest that you consider a service like Beniconnect (www.beniconnect.com) who offer a range of transfer options directly to the hotel. Or the ALSA service bus (www.busbud.com). Others are available if you Google.
Be aware that the hotel is served by a public, underground car park. The charge is currently €14 a day, payable each time that you exit. There is on-street parking, but the nearest is “blue zone”, meaning paid parking. Free “white zone” parking is available around a 10 minute walk away. For example on the Avenida de los Ejércitos Españoles, and on a number of the nearby roads. But avoid Avda de Rumania, where one of the Saturday street markets is held. We don’t want anyone getting towed away!!!
There are also free public car parks a 15 minute walk away, accessed from Partida Gargasindi (un- surfaced), or a large surfaced car park at Calle de Miguel Hernández.
