I was a little hesitant booking into such a big hotel but I must say it exceeded my expectations. The hotel is located right in the centre of alicante overlooking postiguet beach. If you can get on the level your room will overlook the beach/sea view or the marina...try and get the sea view rooms. The room was of a good size and the cleanliness of the hotel was excellent. Very polite staff from the maids right through to the receptionists. I must mention Atina from reception on the level who was outstanding. We asked about a tram trip to altea and she looked into it for us and contacted us after she had finished her shift to give us the relevant details. Several days later she even remembered us and asked us how our day trip went. Great service! Lovely holiday and really good hotel.

Situated at the heart of Alicante, on the beach
we can recommend this hotel for a get away. Nice and friendly staff, junior suite suits 4 people and with large balcony. Everything close by and car rental at the hotel. Sea view or harbour view, great breakfast buffet, good for families as well as couples

8 June 2014 just back from a glorious 7 days in Alicante. The 4* Melia hotel is ideally located between the Beach and the marina with stunning views and all the facilities you would expect from a 4 star hotel. Hello to Una and Peter, friends we made at the hotel.
Across from the hotel moored at the large marina is a Spanish galleon which is well worth exploring and your admission fee of 5 euros includes a drink at the top deck bar. There are gift shops to explore and the Casino if you fancy a flutter. The marina also has a large number of bars and restaurants. You can also get a boat trip here to the Island of...
At the other side of the hotel is the main beach with the crystal clear waters of the med. The beach is very popular. The rear of the beach has a promenade with cafe's and free clean public toilets. Across the road to the rear of the third café, Rompanellos, is the entrance to the castle lift. This takes you up to the castle which is a must visit.
There is also an open top "TouriBus", which for 10 euros buys you a day ticket with 5 hop off and hop on locations around the city. The second stop (10 mins) takes you up to the castle. The bus stops at the melia (roundabout) every hour on the hour and is a good way to check out Alicante.
A short walk from the hotel and marina takes you into the old town. There are lots of restaurants, tapas bars and the usual McD's, Subway and B King if you are not an adventurous eater. Also on the promenade are local craft and gift stalls. A number 5 bus takes you to the Open market on Thursdays and Saturdays for 2.5 euros. I forgot to mention the weather... July was in the top 80's and early 90's with bright sunshine every day. What more could you ask. A week goes bye so quickly!

Room Tip: You have 2 choices.. a marina view or a beach view. Both are excellent.

Ok, never been to Spain before and never fancied it due to the way they treated their animals, however as things have changed for the better, my husband booked us a surprise 6 days for my birthday and our anniversary in May. On arriving at the hotel first impressions were of a dated building from the outside, but I had always invisaged Spanish hotels this way anyway, so no big deal. Going through the doors of the hotel I was aware (as other's mention) that there was a strong smell of sewage, but as you reached reception this seem to disappear, it was unpleasant but I made myself imagine it was coming from the ocean! The girls on reception were not the friendliest of girls I have met and could have been a little more people orientated, however our meetings with them were few and far between thank goodness. On entering our room I was disappointed on first impressions, it was basic but clean and rather dull which I am not a big fan off in a hotel room! However, when I opened the balcony door, the view that hit me made up for everything! It actually looked like it had been painted as it was so picture perfect. Facing us was the deep blue sea and a glorious sky. To the left we had a perfect view of the beach and to the right the ocean for as far as the eye could see. The balcony was tiny and just enough room for myself and my husband with dated chairs and tables but as I said the view superseded everything for me. We were on the fourth floor and I believe the third floor has been totally renovated so I think I would prefer to try this the next time. The pool is of ample size, however, it is absolutely freezing even in temperatures of 30 degrees and it never heated! Needless to say we did not use it and everyone else who did only stayed in it a few minutes which was a shame. We only ate in the pool side bar and the food was lovely. The staff in the bar next to reception were all lovely and made us feel welcome and the staff in the dining area were also nice. The buffet breakfast had everything you could ask for even Champagne and every morning was delicious! The back of the hotel faces on to the ocean and the front faces on to the marina and is ideally situated to explore Alicante. A few minutes walk takes you to some lovely restaurants and bars along the main street and the beach as I mentioned is only a few minutes walk too so you have everything on your door step. The only thing I didn't like was the street sellers who make a kind of gauntlet you have to walk between as they try and sell their glasses and fake handbags, a little scary! Across from the hotel there is a casino which we only used a handful of times but most nights we took a stroll along the water at the marina and had drinks as the sun went down. I have heard other people mention that the noise coming from the bars/casino can be quite bad, however we never experienced this. I could imagine though that it could become quite rowdy as the bars along the water front at the Marina stayed open until 7am. When we returned to the hotel at night we took our drinks and sat out in the front of the hotel where they have comfy sofas and tables, a nice little use of space and good for people watching! All in all I would thoroughly recommend the Melia and taking in the points above I would still return...infact I am looking forward to it!

Room Tip: The wifi did not work in the room reception was the best place to pick it up.
