“Amazing location”
Reviewed 24 January 2014

Amazing location, just next to the beach and the main street of the city. Lively area. Hotel is quite nice and clean. Though check-in process took time which was not expected, rest everything was good. Nice breakfast, clean rooms and friendly staff.

This hotel is perfectly situated right along the marina and in between new town and old town. The hotel is huge. the rooms are clean and our balcony overlooked the marina so was lovely for drinks after a day of sunbathing. The pool is quite small in the hotel and doesn't catch much sunlight in the afternoon so can be cold it is nicer to go the beach. There is a sundeck with sun loungers if you want to sunbathe for a short while before going on somewhere. The restaurants along the promenade are to be avoided if you walk up further into the old quarter there are much tastier nicer restaurants with a nicer atmosphere. Breakfast can be busy so best to go early or towards closing time to avoid the queues, if you go late some foods may be gone. Plenty of options to choose from.

The hotel is in a very good location for night life, beach and shopping. The rooms are badly in need of updating, all the decor is very tired. The wifi reception is poor, it was really difficult to regulate the heating, in fact we had to sleep with the balcony door open despite the fact it was January. The staff are very helpful and everywhere was clean. The breakfast was included in our room price (an offer) and was good, but if you had to pay the going rate, 22 euros, it would be very expensive, as is the overnight parking fee (20 euros).

We have stayed in a couple of places in Alicante and you definitely pay more for the location of the Melia but it is great being so close to the beach. We had breakfast included in the cost and it is a fantastic breakfast. If you book thru melia you can also get some credit which is worth a couple of drinks at the bar. Staff are friendly, wifi is free and there is parking under the hotel which you get at a discounted rate, but worth checking out prices of other car parks as we stayed elsewhere in alicante and it was about 7EUR difference per day which adds up over a week. No complaints about the room, didnt pay for a sea view, whilst the view on the otherside can be less attractive, you do get the sun on your balcony into the evening.

I travel regularly to Alicante on business and this is my hotel of choice. The location is great, both for the beach if you want to relax, for the Bario for eating experiences, or travel to other locations. Rooms are well equipped and of a consistently standard (particularly the Level). Staff are friendly and efficient. Free WiFi works well.

Stayed here for 4 nights in a double room b&b in October. The hotel was always kept clean and the room was perfect.

We had breakfast each morning and the selection was okay but left waiting for things to be restocked.

Our main issue was the pool. They might as well not have one as the hotel is built up on three sides of it so after 11.30/12 everyday every area of the pool is in shade.

We ended up going to the beach instead even though we booked the hotel because of the pool.

The location is great, right On the beach with a marina on the other side.

Lots of restaurants and bars and shopping nearby.

Staff all seemed friendly but didn't really deal with them as other than the pool (which couldn't be helped) we had no issues.
The weather was amazing in October, mid to high 20s and only a little cold In the evenings.

Not sure I would return to Alicante but if so, I would probably stay again

We arrived early for our check-in and had to wait for rooms to be allocated. This was understandable as quite a number of rooms were out of use due to refurbishment. The reception staff did their best in the circumstances and this was appreciated. The hotel has style. Marble abounds in it's construction and looks " stylish". The reception area, the bar, the rooms have that look of quality.The staff overall were excellent and most helpful. The wi-fi was throughout the hotel and free. The bar food was another excellent feature. Breakfast was served in a restaurant with a panoramic view. The food was tip top here with a wide variety of hot and cold items offered. The rooms were excellent with marble floors which a summer trip would require for the cooling effect. The bathroom was well appointed with one oddity. The shower head pointed towards the shower screen which made having a shower an awkward proposition. Puzzled! I would not hesitate to stay at this hotel again. It's position is superb as the beach is adjacent and there are bars, cafés and restaurants within a few minutes walk. A very enjoyable stay for New Year.
