hotel is very clean with modern facilities breakfasts cater for any nationality with alot of choice and good service. the reception staff were very friendly and helpful. I would definatly stay at this hotel again. The only thing I didn't use was the restaurant at night as it was a set menu with very little choice ok if you liked fish every day.

The best thing about my stay was...

close to beach, restaurants and transport.

DONT EAT HERE

I must say first of all our room No 810, was kept very clean, Bedding changed every day, Bathroom spotless. We were booked in for one week on half board. We checked in and went into the dining room for dinner (20.00-2230) We were the only diners? All meals except breakfast are served, NO BUFFET. We chose our first meal from the menu (in Spanish) Varius dishes,some warm,some cold. The next morning at breakfast the same lone Spaniard waitress as the night before was again on duty. The atmosphere was like a funeral. Over the length of our stay the time of the evening meal was changed (without notice) and location of dining changed TWICE. However all of this is of no significance other than to set the scene. On the fourth evening as one of the courses we were served a dish containing cool and undercooked rice. My wife wisely only tasted the rice and left it,unfortunately i ate an amount of it. Some hours later back in our room my wife was terribly sick and had the runs. these were followed by a banging headache. I have, after being home 8 days come out of the bathroom. Whilst still staying at the hotel we asked to see the manager (the person we asked said is it about the food) The manageress came but was totally in denial saying that no other person had complained and she ate in the hotel herself. We told her that we had no intention of eating anything in the hotel and had her contribute to our final evening meal (bought out)

Late holiday

We had a late October holiday (Two weeks) and stayed at this hotel. We paid less than £50 for a double room and B&B so no complaints about the price. The breakfast is buffet with a wide choice and very good. We had a view of the sea room, because the hotel is on the second row from the beach which is just 5mins walk. If you intend to stay for a week or so then buy a TAM Mobilis Bono Multiviaje card from the TAM office in Alicante town centre. The standard fare is 1.10 euros but with a card it works out about 45p per journey. Several good restaurants in the area especially the Chinese. Buy the meal of the day, a bargain and a real feast. The Italian next door serves huge portions also. If you ask for two steaks at the Argentinian they'll cut a cow in two and BBQ it. Expensive but nice. The hotel staff speak English and are very friendly and helpful. They do good meals in their cafe and there is a restaurant but we didn't try that. It's a nice quiet, clean hotel just 7 stories high. Transport is no problem once you get used to their system.The hotel staff will print out timetables. We'd certainly go again but please bear in mind it is 3 star, basic and simple.
