El Plantio Golf Resort
Ranked #13 of 50 Hotels in Alicante
Reviewed 4 May 2013

My colleague and I were booked into El Planito for a last minute stay. we were staying in a 3 bedroom apartment. It seemed modern and well equipped, however some parts looking a bit tired. For instance the glass door in the en-suite was cracked around the handle and a somewhat botched repair had been made instead of replacing the door.
Wi-fi, whilst free, was rather poor in strength. That was if you could connect in the first place. I suspect that there were not enough IP addresses to go around. Given that everyone has a smartphone these days, the wi-fi setup has room for improvement.
The bar and dining area came across as fairly functional and soulless. As previous reviewers have mentioned, this is primarily a golf resort. There were several large groups of golfers having a very good time in the bar when we arrived!
Breakfast was included in our rate and was a buffet with a decent selection of cold meats, cheese, fruit and cereals, as well as a hot selection.
For one night this was acceptable, but you would definitely need a car to get about if there for longer and not just wanting to play golf.

We stayed here for 5 nights in April with our 15 month old daughter. After driving round for a long time we finally found the apartments. The sat nav didn't take us to the correct place so we then searched for golf courses and found it that way. The apartments are really beautiful, lovely and spacious.. Comprising of a lounge, separate kitchen, bathroom, 2 bedrooms and an en-suite, utility room and we were on the bottom floor so had a very large terrace. The apartment had all the facilities we needed for our stay, oven, microwave, utensils, washing machine, fumble dryer, dish washer. We didn't have a kettle and hair dryer, so I asked at reception and they gave us these without any problems. The staff at reception were always very helpful and pleasant throughout our stay. The hotel is 8 minutes from the airport, 50mins to benidorm and 10mins to alicante town and beach. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely return ;-)

Even for non-golfers, this is a very pleasant spot. Excellent and large appartements for super value.Golf-course is (now?) in good condition. Pool areas are nice but some of the underwater painting is missing which is maybe what other reviews dislike.

Room Tip: most rooms seem to have excelent views

Stayed here with my husband in September 2012. The apartments are wonderful and could easily be used as a home!! Unfortunately once you get out of the apartment, the facilities are very shabby with few sunloungers, many are broken and although the pools are spotless, they look very uninviting as they are painted in camouflage. There is little to do and there is not even a mini supermarket, which means a car is essential. My husband booked a round of golf but the course was in such terrible condition, he abandoned his round and demanded his money back. The greens were under attack from some type of fungal disease.

spent two nights here with my wife apartments are very nice and spacious - esp for the price - although would not book the optional breakfast again - good location for Alicante itself and the airport - good for golfers

Room Tip: do not do breakfast unless you like Spanish food

I recently spent 3 nights at the El Plantio Golf Resort in the outskirts of Alicante. The hotel is conveniently located 2-3 outside of Alicante overlooking the golf course and the mountains in the horizon.

The hotel features some very nice and large apartments; nicely styled at a very competitive price. Our apartment was ~1,200 sq.ft. at €50 a day. The rooms (now) have complementary Internet. Everything looked and was very nice.

On the downside, the pool areas looked outdated and dirty. I know upkeep probably isn't a priority this time of year, but all things considered, cleaning the pool areas wouldn't do the trick. Also, some of the tile work needs to be repaired. I WILL definitely be back, and soon. :)

Room Tip: Stay in 'bloque 1' if possible. Best location in my opinion.

Booked this up for a getaway week in December, the accomodation we were given was more than expected, tghe apartment was fully furnished for a week self catering. Washing machine, tumble dryer, microwave, oven, 4 ring hob, dishwasher, kettle, iron , hairdryer.
apartment had a double ensuite bedroom, and a twin bedroom with a separate bathroom. Kitchen was a galley style, sreperate dining room, utility room, 2 balconies, spacious living room with large lcd wall mounted tv ( only BBC World news) WI-FI in room, underground car parking.
10 minute drive from alicante airport, 10 minutes to alicante, 45 minutes to Benidorm.
Car is really essential as there is only the golf complex and hotel on site.
Apartments back on to the 4th and 6th tee boxes and a 5 minute walk down the 5th will get you to the clubhouse.
Some large supermarkets (carrefour) in Alicante so the food and drink shopping can be done, struggled to find the cook in sauces we are so used to in the UK ( Spag Bol, Chilli, etc) overall would recommend if you want peace and quiet and some reasonably priced Golf.
