We first saw this hotel when we were staying elsewhere a couple of months ago, and loved the location and look of the place so we were delighted when we saw an offer we could not refuse for a 2 night stay. We went with friends and also went to Benidorm Palace with the offer, superb. The location could not be better for us, at the quiet end of Poiniente Beach. Great for walking, either right into Finestrat, or left along Poiniente Beach into old town then onto Levante Beach, have done both. The hotel is right next to the beach, with a bus stop outside if you need it. There was plenty of parking in the streets around (the hotel charge €10 a night). This hotel is 'low rise' with a large frontage, including a great terrace with views of the sea, the pool and gardens with great views of the sea and the tennis court with great views of the sea. We made use of all of these. We had rooms on the 3rd floor overlooking the side road, but this was the afternoon sunny side with a lovely balcony with chairs and a clothes airer if you are there long enough to need to do some washing! The room had a fridge (not sure if you have to pay for this at times, but we did not have to). Also a safe, no charge for this either when we were there. There is free wi-fi. Beds are ok with clean, white linen. Blankets in the wardrobe if needed, also if extra pillows needed, they are just a phone call away. Bathroom was a little cramped, but clean and adequate. There are no tea and coffee making facilities (which is often the case in Spanish hotels) no problem if you take your own.
We were full board, breakfast was very good, with a cooking station where the chef will cook your eggs, omelette or pancakes to order, plenty of fresh fruit and good juice, even Cava if you want it for your Bucks Fizz. Lunch and dinner were very much the same, the salad buffet was fresh and varied, as were the cold meats and cheeses and the breads. Wasn't so keen on the pre-cooked hot food, but you did get a choice, so you wouldn't go hungry. Not sure I would want to be full board for longer than a couple of days. The restaurant staff were exceptional, courteous, efficient and friendly, they even sorted out a round table for the 8 of us in our party for our stay. The drinks in the bar were normal bar prices, and I think perhaps you do not always get the same service, on our first night we were offered 'nibbles' with our drinks, and our vodka tonics came with a really nice orange twist, the 2nd night, no nibbles offered, and not even a slice of lemon for the drink! Also the tills were not working properly as we were almost charges way more than the day before, this was all sorted out after querying it though. All in all a fabulous trip, will definitely return some time to this welcoming, even if a little tired hotel.
