The hotel was very nice. It is modern and clean, the bar/lounge area was very comfortable and airy. The rooms were comfortable and clean. There was a mini bar but no kettle & tea making facilities which we would have liked. We had a balcony room with sea views. There is free WiFi connection which is good but only in the public areas. It is a shame it wasn’t in the rooms, even if that meant a charge. Although there was a TV the only English channels were CNN and a sports one. The staff were very pleasant and helpful but as this is off the beaten track for your average British tourist don’t expect perfect English.
They have a buffet for all meals. The food was ok and there was enough choice but we did find that the slow cooker meant that ’hot’ dishes were luke warm...but ok. We had an evening meal the first night and were a bit disappointed, it wasn’t alwful but nothing special. Although we did have a glorious cream cake for desert!!
I would happily recommend the hotel as somewhere clean and comfortable to stay with the benefit of being in a good location for the sandy beaches, the Marina, the National Park and Alcoceber. I chose the hotel because of previous reviews and because the resort wasn’t one of the usual hen/stag haunts. This however meant that unless you were driving it wasn’t the easiest place to get to. There is only one train each way a day. The nearest station is Alcala del Chivert(Xivert) and then you need to catch a bus or take a taxi to Alcoceber.
Alcoceber itself is a quiet little seaside town with beautiful unspoilt beaches. There are pleanty of restaurants and bars but not much else. There is a national park a short walk from the hotel with breath-taking coastal walks (wear sensible walking shoes though). It is mainly a Spanish resort but there are at least two English run places ’Cheers’ in the Marina and ’Mambos’ on the way in to Alcoceber town. I would love to go back one day to explore the National Park and the area a bit more. However this time I would take a car!
