This was our (husband and I) first stay in Calpe and first Saga all-inclusive holiday. We made a great choice as we had a wonderful time. The hotel is beautiful, the staff very friendly, and the location is perfect. The hotel has an outdoor pool, an indoor pool (heated), a workout room, and a sauna. Lots of outdoor lounge areas.
The all-inclusive amenities included a free bar from 1pm to 11pm, three mealtime buffets: breakfast, lunch, and supper. All had many offerings, including hot and cold food as well as a chef who cooked some things (differed daily) as you watched and to order.
The Saga rep was on-hand most all the the time and she and the other Saga guides were Spanish residents and totally fluent in both English and Spanish. Although we were there only one week, we had two included excursions and about four optional ones.
Can't think of any real downers, although I probably would have liked more authentic Spanish food dishes. Paella was available every lunchtime and it was always excellent. And, as has been the case for EVERY hotel we've ever stayed in (world-wide), we'd have liked better lighting for reading and more electrical outlets. Oh, and this is a BIG downer: the television in the room never had a good picture on ANY channel! The only English channels were the repetitive Sky News, BBC Worldwide News, and CNN News. No programs other than these three news channels in English. They really need to upgrade all the TVs in the rooms, get cable, and get a proper connection or aerial or whatever it takes.
