We had been looking forward to our overnight stay as members of a party having a Christmas celebration here. Unfortunately we experienced quite a number of problems.... Our bathroom basin drained extremely slowly. Our toilet did not refill after flushing. Had to do some DIY 'plumbing' each time, after lifting the ceramic cistern lid. The floor in the room really...

We booked a1 bedroom apartment in this hotel. Was confused that this is a separate building- not the same as on the foto. The apartment was on the 18th floor. The view from the balcony is amazing! The kitchen is well-equipped, the furniture is modern. There was no hairdryer in the bathroom and the floors are cold in all rooms.... More

My wife and I have just returned from Calfe where we stayed in the lovely Esmeralda Hotel. The bed-room was first class: very bright and the view exquisite. The room was very well attended by a lovely lady . The restaurant food was such that all tastes were catered for. I particularly enjoyed breakfast. My one grouse was on leaving... More

First time in Calpe, what a beautiful place. Total chill out place. The hotel is in a prime location, our room turned out to be a one bedroom apartment with a huge balcony, very clean and spacious. The staff are all very helpful and friendly even though English language was a bit of a problem, but then we should have... More

Good points are the location and the rooms and linen are clean...bad points are - everything else! Its a predominantly 'elderly Spanish guest' hotel and caters for them really. Our room was ok though it overlooked the car park and... I still cannot believe that they pull locked metal shutters down over the kitchen facilities (we were All Inclusive which... More

Rooms a bit tired. Food was average and very disappointing for a vegetarian. We didn't pay a bad price out of season so okay if you are on a budget but would be disappointed if we had paid more. Staff helpful and friendly. Good location on the sea front.

Work was being done whilst we were there. The workmen made a real mess (including the cardboard in lift) and didn't clean up after themselves. Workmen were also rude and got in the way. Very noisy place - music from the entertainment is extremely loud and goes on till 12.30 every night. If you can't beat them, join them! In... More
