What a lovely hotel. Rooms super clean, all with an amazing view. Reception staff were lovely. The restaurant staff are very nice but the food!!! Bizarre mixtures bearing little resemblance to the menu served lukewarm. Wine is reasonably priced but check what they bring. We asked for a local rose and were brought lambrusco. The breakfast was fine however - self service and lots of choice.

You can't get a direct transfer to the hotel so we took the bus to Alicante (C6) and then the tram to Crueta. It was a lovely journey but a little steep between Crueta tram stop and the Hotel Allon, so not a journey suitable for people with restricted mobility.

The hotel is spotlessly clean and the rooms are lovely. In the afternoon after sunbathing I would relax on the bed and listen to the waves crashing as you are so close to the breach. I wasn't impressed with the breakfast though. Lack of choice and the quality wasn't great.

Villajoyosa has a good choice of high quality places to eat. El Posit is out of this world. I would agree with the previous reviewer who recommended a Michelin Star. El Guitarra was also nice. The area along the seafront was so relaxing, tranquil and peaceful.

We took the tram into Benidorm a couple of times. It's quite a walk from the tram stop to the nightlife in the centre of Benidorm. And the last tram back is 10.30pm when things are just getting going.

Villajoyosa is a wonderful, traditional little town and not everybody speaks English. With the exception of some of the restaurants and bars, most places embrace the 4 hour siesta!!!

If you are looking for somewhere to relax and unwind then it is perfect. We would definitely return to Villajoyosa and the Hotel Allon.

Great location right by the beach, modern immaculately clean room with sea view and friendly English speaking staff. The buffet breakfast and dinner was acceptable, but nothing special. The pool was ice cold! For what we paid, the hotel represented excellent value for money.

we wanted a clean and tidy hotel on the beach with a pool... That's what we got.
The location is excellent could not be better for the beach. Bars and restaurants ok we found one little gem. the rest was so disappointing. Service was non existent at reception and at breakfast. The breakfast was cold and pretty lacking... The nicest thing was the coffee.
The pool was really nice but only managed to get a bed one day after someone let me have theirs.. They have no where near enough sun beds and half of those were broken or very
uncomfortable. They also allowed people to put towels on and save the beds from 7am and not use the beds really not a good policy they should monitor this it upset a lot of the guests. They have a ridiculous wifi policy and it's very poor.. It is free but a pain to get tickets every day for every device not a usp !! It's a shame because this hotel could be soo nice if they just put in a bit more attention and detail to their service and customer experience... When I checked out I wasn't even asked if I'd had a nice stay !!!

The Hotel is in an ideal location right on the sea front, all the rooms have a seaview and are quite big.
We where staying halfboard and found the food ok with a selection of fish or meat dishes every night. We found it odd that they didn't have a wine list on the tables and only asked if you wanted a glass or bottle of the house red or white. Saying that, the wine was alright and at 6 euros a bottle you can't moan.
The hotel had a bar but we never saw a barman or a customer in it! Bars have to have ambience!
The only negative thing I could say about this hotel is the number of sunbeds around the pool only 6 when the hotel has about 50 rooms, therefore the pool was not being used much and the cafe by the pool was mostly empty.
Overall this is a nice hotel in a very good location but I believe it could be managed better, maybe less cafe area making more room for sunbeds, and they need to have a wine list I am sure they would make more money.

Stayed first week September. Room 501. Fabulous room(very modern) even though it was a the gable end. Large balcony. Great views even though only partial. We were initially concerned about room choice. Thankfully the hotel gave us Room 501 as it was peacefull,quiet and no noise from the pool/bar area(it had entertainment at weekends and familys all day) and it had uninterupted sun from approx 14.00hrs till sunset which was a great bonus. It allowed us to walk all over the beautiful working Spanish town of Vilajoiosa in the morning, enjoying the friendly locals, good food, beer,wine all very reasonably priced.

A beach to die for, totally accessable to all, spotlessly clean literally in front of the Allon Hotel with Umbrellas,Sun beds & tables for 2 people, all for 13 euros per visit.
Food in the hotel restaurant we did not sample apart from breakfast which had a reasonable choice but got repititious. Some quality issues with hot & cold drinks.Staff very efficient. It has the usual Spanish hotel issue of luke warm hotplate food from what should be a HOT buffet breakfast. I cannot understand how they get away with lukewarm food (from a temperature control point of view) as I know the legislation in the UK and this would not be allowed. Food in the Bar area was mediocore at best and would not recommend it. There are some great local spots to dine at, right on the hotels door step, once again value for money and a good selection for all tastes and wallets.
Housekeeping staff excel at quality control at the Hotel Allon making the room a stay very pleasent experience (Thanks to all Housekeeping Staff)
Reception, on arrival the welcome was not so good which is disappointing as they are the face of the Hotel Allon the first impression was not good,to be fair the language barrier does not help as we do not speak Spanish. This impression changed as the week continued as a nice smile does go a mile and we did find most of the reception staff to be great.
We would not hesitate from recommending this hotel. Rooms are stunning and we feel priced well.Though a small table on the balcony would be good + a sunbed in the hotel rooms with the large balconies as we would be ok with a small charge for this.
It is a quiet laid back resort and not a Benidorm. So good books,good music on your i pod and this is heaven.
We will definately be back.
PS GREAT A/C in all rooms

Room Tip: Go for rooms on 5th & 6th floors but not rooms over looking the carpark as it looks like a bomb...

Just needed a quick break to have a rest and re-charge the batteries and so thought that a trip to Spain would fit the bill.
We like the area north of Benidorm around Altea but couldn't seem to find what we wanted and then stumbled across, on the internet, The Allon Mediterannia and thankfully we did as the the stay with them was very relaxing and just what we were looking for.
We booked the break through Easyjet Holidays and this was by far the most cost effective way of staying at this hotel. Previous reviews had rated it well and so went ahead.
The hotel is quite new and spotlessly clean with the room itself being very comfortable indeed and maintained in the same manner throughout our stay. The bathroom had the best shower I've had in Spain at any hotel and not at all a problem that there was no bath as showering is our preference.
The staff were absolutely excellent and nothing was too much trouble and the reception staff always friendly with a smile for you at all times. It has to be said that the hotel was very quiet, being just after the Easter period but for us this was fine. We were leaving for the airport on our checking out day well before the breakfast room was open but the staff set out the buffet early for us and this not something many hotels would do.
The food was very good but not what we were expecting. This is not meant as any complaint against the hotel as the quality was, as I say, very good and I will explain.
Amazingly, it was cheaper to go on this break full board than half board, so naturally we took that option. Easyjet had stated clearly in their profile of the hotel that the meals were of a buffet style and a good deal of choice on offer and with many of the reviews stating the quality was good then this was another tick for booking. However, as the hotel was so quiet, you cannot blame the hotel for not putting out a large buffet choice as not all of the guests were eating in the hotel. Instead they offered a menu of the day and this gave a good choice of starter, main and dessert, with each dish prepared on order. The only slight issue was that the lunch menu wa exactly the same as dinner each day and did then restrict the choice but again, what we had was of a good standard. Breakfast was buffet style and very good indeed.
I did actually take the matter of the lack of a buffet service with Easyjet and they within 24 hours agreed to pay us some compensation and I have to say we were very impressed with their quick response and no quibble positiveness towards us, their customers. Other holiday companies take note!
All in all a very nice relaxing break, the hotel is right on the beach and a nice beach as well. As for Villajoyosa, well there's not much to it at all and indeed a bit disappointing but the plus point is the excellent tram service that serves that coastline from Alicante up to, I think Denia. We visited our beloved Altea so easily by using the tram, which has a frequent and very inexpensive reliable service. The trams are very clean and modern and each of our 2 journeys 2 young boys gave up their seats for the benefit of my wife in order that she could sit down. How refreshing to see some politeness and respect, don't think that would happen here anymore.
I would certainly recommend this hotel but mainly for couples seeking a relaxing break.
