Booked a week at the Husa Alicante using Southend Airport as it's very local to me. We were going to play golf with a few days inbetween to check out Alicante and the surrounding areas.
We chose the Husa knowing that it's quite remote and far out of 'town' although we expected that there would be some night life on San Juan Plaza and we could get a cab or tram into Alicante.
There is no night life on San Juan so if buzzing cafes and pubs are your thing, this is not the right place to stay. In saying that though there is a very buzzy plaza just opposite with several cafes/restuarants/burger king etc just opposite and we were quite happy with this.
The Husa is lovely - i think its worth 3-4 stars. Staff are very friendly and although I speak some Spanish it was not necessary - staff all spoke English. We had a nice room (deluxe overlooking the golf course) however our view was obscured by palm trees and a higher room would have been nicer.
I have only 2 grumbles about the Husa - the breakfasts are absolutely dire and they really ought to do something about this as it brings the whole place down. I ended up eating cereal as the cooked and cold breakfasts are just awful. The hot food is cold (cold beans uggggghh) too which makes it worse.
The other niggle is that I booked a double bed, clarifying on 3 occasions with the agent that this was confirmed and then was given a twin when i got there with no option to change.
Everything else is great - free parking, easy acccess to the countryside and a cheap cab to Alicante.
The standout of this trip however was the golf course - loved it. The course is superb and I am so glad we booked 3 rounds on the same course. Even with this however, comes a negative - the play is EXTREMELY slow and this drove us nuts. They book everyone as a 4 ball and unless you insist they will pair you up with random strangers so that they can get more on the course. It is way oversubscribed and I found this annoying - we were quite happy to tee off in the afternoon (course is quite empty after about 2pm) and ended up changing 2 of our tee times because 5 and a half hours to go round is just ridiculous.
The above was an annoyance that i will avoid in future all over Spain as I believe this is quite common. We are going for the weekend again in May and I will be sure to book as late in the day as possible.
All round, I loved the holiday and will definitely go back to the Husa again
