I have just returned from a week's stay at the Hospes and thought, overall, that it was a great hotel which provided great value for money owing to the price myself and my partner paid for our stay via Expedia. The hotel is situated in a fantastic location - everything you would want to see or visit is about a 5 minute walk away (beach, marina, promenade, old town). The rooms are spacious and comfortable and the rainforest showers are amazing. If you want a quiet room, request one overlooking the inner courtyard prior to your stay. I did this on the back of reading a review here and am so glad I did - the two streets some of the rooms look out over are quite noisy in the night owning to the restaurants there and tourists eating at them or walking around. Some reviews have said that the disadvantage with these types of rooms are that they are slightly darker than others - I did not find this whatsoever. All rooms have a black-out shade on the balcony windows controlled by a remote which I thought was a nice touch and the air conditioning can be controlled manually so you can set the temperature to your own liking. The rooftop pool, although not particularly large, was well designed and, throughout our stay, not very busy at all. It has a jacuzzi at one end which was very relaxing. There is a gym which, although I only used once, was more than adequate, although the hotel needs to sort out the air con in there as it gets extremely hot. The rooftop deck has around 14 sun loungers and, provided you get to the rooftop not too late in the afternoon, you can generally acquire one or two. You can get towels for the loungers from reception which you can keep throughout your stay returning them on departure. On Friday and Saturday nights, the rooftop changes into a restaurant which is highly reccommended (you need to book with the hotel staff if you want to eat there). The food is a BBQ style and great value for money (complimentary glass of champagne to start). The hotel also projects old black and white films from the rooftop to the buildings adjacent to the roof which produces a great effect. The view from the rooftop is stunning during the day, overlooking the castle and old town from one side, and the marina from the other. Breakfast in the hotel is served on the mezzanine level (which the hotel could do with telling you before hand as it took a while to locate) and was, undoubtedly, the best selection of buffet type food I have ever experienced. You can also order from a set menu if you wish. The hotel restautant (on ground floor) serves tapas which was really tasty and, I thought, well priced. There were only a slight few niggles I had with the hotel, but, overall these did not cause any great inconvenience and would not put me off reccommending the hotel or from staying there again. These were - i) the hallway carpets need to be cleaned and/or replaced as they are slightly unsightly in there present state, ii) more staff are needed during breakfast serfice (as service can be a tad on the slow side), iii) the rooftop bar should, I think, be open during daytime hours so you can order drinks (you have to call room service at present) and not just on the evenings of Friday and Saturday and iv) the hotel could do with more than just a single laptop for "internet access" as you often have to queue for it. Like I say, these are just little niggles - I would wholeheartedly reccommend this hotel for a great stay in gorgeous Alicante and would certainly stay there if I was to return to the area again.
