We stayed in this hotel two nights in August. My husband is a platinum member and we chose to stay here because it was free with our points. Upon arrival the hotel seems fine - the entrance is nice and the staff is very friendly. When we went to enter our room we realized they had given us a smoking... More

Up side: Good breakfast, short walk from the fantastic beach, with a range of bars and restaurants nearby. Rooms were large (but can stink of smoke, and you don't have a choice of non-smoking online), with air con, and a decent bathroom with powerful shower. Good size pool, a nice sun trap, although pool was freezing cold and it's true... More

First of all, I have to say that I like this hotel. It's very convenient for a stay at San Juan playa and I personally prefer it to any of the hotels located right on the beach because it makes the hotel more calm and less party oriented. It also gives you the opportunity to have a little walk before... More

Can only echo much that has been said before, a good value hotel based in a good location for exploring the area. I would rate the beach at San Juan as the finest I have visited in Europe in terms of space and cleanliness, We traveled to Benidorm for the day and really appreciated the contrast when we returned.

Booked up for a last minute week abroad, found this hotel on trip advisor. Great hotel, 5 minutes walk to the beach at San Juan about 6km's from Alicante. Room spotless, food in hotel great. Staff brilliant. Pool spotless, certainly caters for families as well. It is one hotel I would certainly go back to out of this world
