This hotel is a reasonably priced base for a holiday. Although some guests chose to stay by the pool we travelled in to alicante, or for beach days the Playa San Juan is outstanding and around 10 minutes drive away. On the plus side the hotel is clean, the staff are friendly and helpful, the tennis courts are great, pool is good and it is close enough to the tram station or by taxi for evenings in alicante centre.
On the negative side, we requested coffee making facilities, that were provided, however after day 2 the housekeeping staff stopped providing fresh cups etc and replacement coffee. We wouldn't wash them ourselves as there was only the bathroom sink and we didn't have washing utensils or washing up liquid. The rooms to the back of the hotel are noisy next to the tram and cliff with no view, The rear rooms seem to be the refurbished ones so are more up to date. The front room we stayed in was old and desperate for a revamp, but I would say better than the noise of the tram. There is nothing nearby worth a visit, therefore a drive or tram to beach/town/bars/ restaurants is required.
The hotel bars close early as well so as the driver it meant back to the hotel and off to bed!!
There is no fridge so anything to drink or eat has to be purchased every time you want it.
Overall an ok hotel for the price but just to be used as a base. Car hire or public transport is essential to enjoy the stay here!!
