If it’s history or culture you’re looking for, the castle of Santa Barbara is a towering structure at the heart of the city.

Pamela b, Glasgow
Overall a great break for a few days get away. Right on the beach and close to bars and restaurants. 10 minutes walk to get the lifts to the castle which is a must see. The views are amazing. Staff are helpful on arrival. On check out we paid extra to get a late checkout that morning however Reception didn't inform us that the road was closed due to a cycle race therefore unable to get a taxi to airport until it finished.
The best thing about my stay was...Bottle of fizz for my birthday was a great touch from the hotel

Allocated room on fourth floor. It was adequate but definitely not 4 star. Clean is all I can say positive about it. Bar area was soulless and breakfast, well if you want dried up ham or eggs then fine!
The best thing about my stay was...Alicante is a vibrant city with great transport links.

Good room for disabled access
Carol A, El Campello, Spain
Very good hotel - good location - excellent food - nice to have waiter service for dinner rather than a buffet. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We were in a Junior Suite suitable for disabled access (2057 right by the lifts) which had a separate bedroom and sitting room with a sofa bed so would be excellent for a family. We also had 2 bathrooms which suited us well. My only criticism of the room was that the lighting was poor in the lounge area - just 3 table lamps and, especially at this time of the year, could have done with more lights.
The best thing about my stay was...Our room and the fact that dinner was restaurant service not buffet
