The Paraiso Mar is in one of the best locations on the Costa Blanca you can find. Calpe is a lovely place with stunning beaches & scenery & served by some top notch restaurants & bars, all reasonably priced.
We'd visited Calpe on a number of occasions, having stayed in nearby Moraira several times, so knew it quite well & were impressed by its amenities & the beaches. Our favourite beach bar is about 100 yards from Paraiso Mar so when it came up on a search it was a no brainer.
Whilst the decor in the apartments could do with updating, they are great apartments, all with beautiful views of Ifach Rock & the sea. They are well furnished & contain everything you need, including a free safe. There is a lovely outdoor pool (the indoor pool was closed when we were there) but some of the apartments are residential so beware using any of the sunbeds or deckchairs around the pool as they are for residents only (as we found out when we were turfed off them by an annoyed resident).
The apartments are also very reasonably priced & the location is superb. You are literally 100 feet from the beach & a large number of extremely good bars & restaurants. There is also a great bar, Bar 78, right underneath the apartments with excellent food & drinks. In fact we ate breakfast there most days & drank there most nights, whilst looking out over the bay.
Our party of 5 stayed for a week from 4th June 2014. The people on the reception desk could not have been more helpful. We weren't flying home until 9.00 p.m. on the final day & were concerned that we would have to leave the apartments early & find somewhere to store our luggage for the day. However, as it was out of season, the gentlemen on reception who showed us around said we could have use of our apartments for the whole day so we effectively had them for an 8th day free of charge which was a real relief.
We had a superb holiday, the weather was brilliant every day, & the apartments & Calpe itself made it that much better. We are already looking at dates for next year! Highly recommended.
