"Not Quite 5 Star"
Couldn't quite give 4 stars for couple of basic reasons. To the good parts. This is a very nice hotel, nice reception area, smells great, attentive staff, complimentary cava on arrival. Decent facilities re gym, sauna and small pool. Good location. Good, comfortable bedding too. Unfortunately....superior room was big enough but the layout is kinda freaky. Shower/bath area has no privacy from opening room door. If cleaner or anyone else enters room whilst your showering...just pray they don't! More importantly, the noise from the bar opposite meant I really struggled to sleep here, hotels without excess noise are a must and this just didn't do it. Also the blackout curtains weren't big enough in either of 2 windows, meaning excess light early mornings. Breakfast was ok but really expected better choice and quality in a 5 star hotel. All in all it's a nice hotel but definitely lets itself down on some issues.
Visited last week, for my friend 40th Birthday. This is also the first trip abroad with my mother who never been on a 'girly' weekend. The hotel and room was fabulous the staff are so helpful and lovely, they even sent up room service which was a free bottle of bubbly and the most tasty chocolate cake with strawberry in honour of her 40th!! Glad to say that my mother also enjoyed herself soo much she would would like to go book there again for next year.
This has to be one of the best hotels in Alicante and the region. First class welcome and throughout my stay at the hotel. Lovely room, in my mind a true 5 star. I was visiting another location in the area so did not get chance to eat in the hotel, I would however say that it isn't the cheapest place to eat or drink but you would expect that.
We've stayed at this hotel and returned to stay there too as it's so lovely. We've stayed at one of the sea front hotels in Alicante too but didn't enjoy it as much as this one. The hotel is tucked away on a street away from the main drag so it's quieter yet just a few minutes walk to the sea front. The rooms are nicely decorated in clean, crisp and cool furnishings and the air con works really well. There's a lovely roof top bar and restaurant (not the cheapest but nice for a treat). There is a roof top pool and sunbathing area during the day but we found it too hot as there were no parasols (but that could just be our preference because we are both very fair!) but that didn't bother us because the nearby beach has plenty of parasols and loungers to hire. We did get breakfast the first time we stayed here and it was lovely but since then, on remaining stays, we saved some money and just went to the nearby cafes for brekkie. There's a good lounge area too and we chilled out there last time because we had a little wait until leaving for our flight and we needed somewhere cool to relax! The hotel can ring a taxi for you too to get to the airport (we have used the public bus service too which is not far but last time it was really hot and we just wanted the convenience of a taxi which was not stupidly expensive). I'd love to go back soon!
"Not quite five star as claimed."
We spent 10 days at this hotel and although we had a very good time we think the hotel should be rated four star not five. The restaurant had a very limited selection for lunch and dinner. For example the meat courses offered were beef with a chocolate taste, goat or pigeon. Only three desserts were on the menu of which one was unavailable. The roof top pool was OK but was closed for four days for maintenance. When we complained that this should have been mentioned when booking the hotel we were told that they had to use the contractor when he was available. I would have thought that a five star hotel would be able to tell the contractor when they wanted them not the other way around. Room was fine and the staff definitely five star.
