I stayed here for 2 nights on a mini-break with my friend and we loved it. We flew in to Alicante airport and got a taxi to the hotel which cost us 18 euros and it took between 10 and 15 minutes. There are plenty of taxis at the airport.
As some other people have said, the hotel is slightly out of the way but personally I would prefer to have a short walk and a great hotel rather than a poor hotel in the centre of it all. We were greeted on Reception by 2 very friendly members of staff who were extremely helpful and polite. I couldn't fault the welcome we were provided. Our room on 6th floor was clean , modern and I loved it. If you are looking for a quality but minimalist and well decorated room, then this is the place for you. Wifi costs if you use it in the room but is free in communal areas. There were toiletries in the bathroom and a well-stocked mini bar in the room. Also a good quality hair dryer.
We used the hotel bar and restaurant and the service was good, efficient and friendly for our evening meal. I couldn't quite say the same for service at breakfast as this was somewhat lacking and the girl serving and seating guests clearly disliked her job and her customers. Her name was Lara and she really did let this hotel down since everyone else provided impeccable standards of service and made us feel so welcome. Having said that, the breakfast itself was excellent with an array of fruit, coffees, pastries, toast, cereal and continental hams and cheeses etc...
The pool on the rooftop was lovely but the area around it only accommodates 10 - 12 sun beds so we were never able to secure one.
So around the hotel then; it takes between 10 and 15 minutes to walk to the marina and then a further 5 minutes to the beach area. If you have kids, don't worry about this as there are small playgrounds all along this route. I loved Alicante itself, there's so much to see and do, and it feels like a proper Spanish holiday resort. On this occasion I went with my friend but I intend to return soon with my husband and family as this resort fits both. I will certainly stay at this hotel on my return.
I would have given it 5 stars but for the size of the sunbathing area on the roof and the poor customer service at breakfast. I would recommend this hotel definitely!!
