Area and accommodation

I am helping a family of 6 plan a holiday to Alicante. I am unfamiliar with the area. Can anyone suggest which area near the beach and things to do for older kids. Also an apartment in a complex would be good where there is something on in the evenings.

They need a three bedroom apartment or house from 29 June to 8 July.

Gran Alacant, Playa San Juan, El Campello. Maybe La Marina or Guardamar.

Thanks I am looking at a few 3 bedroom apartments in Gran Alacant. Is there enough to do in this area for a young family? Do you know of any resorts where there is family entertainment in the evenings problem is I still need 3 bedrooms in one apartment or house.

The websites that Mark has put on are good ones for this area.

If you wanted to come south of Alicante then Playa Flamenca, La Zenia or Cabo Roig are areas that have plenty going on for teenagers and families.

Looking at your dates you might had to just go where you can get property available at such short notice, those dates in my property have been booked since last year.

Gran Alacant is quite far from Alicante town center and there isn't much to do there, just a few bars and restaurants. I would recommend something between Alicante - Benidorm , as all the coast is well connected with the TRAM and it's very easy to move. Lots to see and do in Alicante itself and towns along the coast.

But with just a month to book, you won't have much choice... the websites I've used in the past are:

www.homelidays.com

Gran Alacant is 15km from the centre of Alicante. With 50+ bars and restaurants, some with entertainment, it is a popular destination for families and couples alike. About 25 minutes by bus and 15 minutes by car or taxi.
