Just back from a wonderful stay at the Hotel Kactus Albir! Where do I start? Superb rooms, excellent food, great staff - especially Paco and Juan and the rest of the crew! Nothing was too in trouble - thank you again! Location is superb, literally on the beach with views to die for! Wonderful sunrises and sunsets! Beautiful promenade for the after dinner stroll! Very accessible to the entire area either by car or bus! There were a lot of older guests when we first arrived and they were particularly catered for with regards to evening entertainment but we did join in and watch some of the shows etc! We went out and about to see the local beauty spots! Definately worth a vist is the old town of Altea the next town along the promenade ! Long walk but worth it! The fountains in Callosa, make sure you take swimwear and towel as you can swim in them!! Park at one of the restaurant car parks for about €3 all day! Then on to Guadalest for stunning views over the lake and dam and hilltop village ! Worth a drive up to Calpe and beyond! We drove to Valencia City just under 90 minutes away on AP7 ! Lots of lovely places and bays to visit off the N332 ! You can not stay in Albir and not take a trip to Benidorm! It cost €6 each was on the bus for four adults! We spent a morning in the old town which is lovely! Very traditional and pretty then had the afternoon and evening in the English Square are for some drinks, live music and a bit of fun! Nice to visit but wouldn't want to stay there far too busy but a great day and evening out! The pools at the Kactus are lovely only one downside not enough sun loungers as a fair few were damaged and not usable plus no parasols to escape the sun! We went and bought our own parasol for a few euros which meant we could use it on the beach ! The beach is mainly pebbles so you will need to hire sunbeds or buy a padded mat for comfort! Market every night close by and a nice few shops in the town itselff and nearbyLots of nice bars and restaurants if you want to explore outside the hotel! The beach has play areas and outdoor gym and is very clean! Lots of locals stay weekends as they hold various events like dancing, pool, martial arts ! We got to see some of the displays and performances which was interesting! Would Definately go back!!
