Hotel Kaktus Albir
Ranked #4 of 15 Hotels in L'Alfas del Pi
Reviewed 4 July 2014

I've just returned from two weeks at this hotel. Location right opposite the pebble beach with views for miles in a stunning bay. Views of the beach and lighthouse from my balcony. Food variety and quality were excellent - the best I've experienced at any 4 star hotel. Staff were courteous even the bar staff despite previous bad reviews. I had a single room which was enormous and very comfortable. Trips to various places were interesting and the local buses were frequent and on time with a standard fare irrespective of how far you were going. Benidorm was close by if you wanted more day or nighttime activities. Overall a great holiday which should appeal to adults or families with grown up children since the pool area is quite small.

Room Tip: All rooms have balconies with views of the beach.

Once you get used to the waiters pouncing on you desperate for tips every few mins, then the views from here are first class over the beach. I would advice though once you have had breakfast to walk around the Town, and if able to one day walk up the cliff to the lighthouse, from there you get fantastic views but it is a long hard walk.

My friend and I stayed at this hotel in April 2012. We could not have chosen a better place to spend my 65th birthday. The beach is right opposite, and every room has a balcony with view overlooking the beach. This is a 4 star hotel that should be upgraded. All the staff with the exception of one barman are all very friendly and couldn't be more helpfull. We went all inclusive, and had no need whatsoever to get any of our meals elsewhere. All the waiters are really friendly and very jolly, all work very long hours, but always greeted you with good manners and a smile.The dining area is spotlessly clean, with all table cloths and comfortable seating. Our room was excellant with all you could wish for. A lovely maid that changed the bedding every 2 days and kept the rooms spotlessly clean. Towels were changed on a daily basis and all glasses and in the bathroom and the main room were always clean every day along with the cups and saucers. Always a fresh supply of tea bags, coffee, sugar etc. The bath/ shower and sink was always kept very clean. Spot on. There is entertainment every night with singers and dancing, that went on all evening. They even teach you how to Salsa etc. The bar was open from 11 am till 11 pm. with a very good selection of wines, spirits and beers. All bar staff with the exception of one that seem to think ( all inclusive guests were second class citizens ) were very pleasant and polite. There is a heated swimming pool and gym fitness area on the roof along with ample sun bathing area. also pools at the front of the hotel. There is lovely walks to be had and the town is only a short walk away also. Everywhere smelt of beautiful orange blossom. Really a very nice hotel to stay at. We will be going back again next year to the same hotel. Excellant, couldn't have been better.

Room Tip: Every room has a view over looking the beach, with a balcony. No noise to worry about. Spoilt for ch...

A really relaxed week here, hotel was good value all round. The staff mostly very friendly and efficient...however agree with other contributors comment re bar staff....Saga customers treated with a less than helpful manner, actually being told where to stand to give our order !!?? Food mainly good and varied. Evening entertainment not to our taste....the same duo belting out the usual "popular " stuff most nights....however there are other places to sit for a quiet drink. The location for us was perfect...right on the sea front with easy walking to nearby bars and a little further along to neighbouring Altea, would definitely return.

Room Tip: All rooms have a side sea view.....so some sun at varying times

Excellent hotel. Asked for sea view and Got frist row to Albir playa. Seemed like everything could be arranged in the reception without problems. Nice breakfast as well. Room was clean and tidy. Could do with some complementary Tea and coffee. Didn't try the pool or supper but it looked good. Very recommendable. Do try the charming new coffee joint around the corner as well, Very Nice people even though they're dutch;-)

Stayed for a week at the beginning of April and found the Kaktus to be a relaxed and spacious hotel with a very high standard of cleanliness and hygiene. The room (which was shared by three adults) was large and comfortable with corner sofa and table. The bathroom housed a bath and separate shower cubicle, and was kept spotlessly clean by the friendly staff. As mentioned in previous reviews, the inner balconies do overlook each other, which could probably be a little uncomfortable in the high season when the hotel is fully occupied. The restaurant is also very spacious and the buffet meals are extremely varied and plentiful - there is always something that everyone can enjoy. There was even hand hygiene gel at the restaurant entrance, although I didn't see too many people using it!
This really is a hotel more suited to the older clientele rather than families, as the pool and outside area are quite limited, although there is a rooftop pool but this is also quite small. Our only real complaint was that there were no parasols with the sunbeds, and only a few on the bar terrace - even in early April we felt that these were needed.
Although close to Benidorm, Albir is a quiet, rather sedate resort, with a lovely clean pebble beach.
All-in-all an enjoyable location for three 60-somethings in low season, but not so sure about what it would be like in high summer.
