Good low cost hotel. In need of modernising, but value for money. Great location and outdoor pool was spacious. Good base for adventuring around Calpe and the Costa Blanca. Right on the beach and close to restaurants. Not sure why you never get a double bed when booking apartments!

Like many who have written reviews here we ended up not at Turmalina which we had been to many times before hence us choosing it this time, but at Hippocampos - "upgraded" according to the receptionist! Hippocampos was OK, balcony didn't have the views or get the sun like Turmalina but did have a fabulous indoor spa pool. I agree... More

We've just returned from a wonderful holiday in Calpe. We were booked to stay in the Turmalina Apartments but arrived there at 2.00am with three young children to be told by a nightime receptionist with very little English that we were in fact staying at the Larimar apartments down the road. As you can imagine this is not the ideal... More

Turmalina is an okay hotel, but I think if you looked around you could do better. The facilities are clean, yet basic, and the whole hotel has a feel to it that makes its hayday seem like a long time ago. On the plus side, the view from our room was very good. The actual resort of calpe is nice... More

We booked through easyjet holidays and for just less than £400, flights and a more than adequate apartment were all in. As it was so cheap we wondered what sort of apartment it would be, but having checked the reviews on tripadvisor found that it appeared to be fine. No cockroaches by the way! Everything worked well and no complaints... More

The room was very well kitted out and a credit to its owners, slight probelm with cockroaches which upset the Mrs! lovely views of the rock, beach, salt flats and pool area, prices of food in the resort were a little high for the time of year, but the food in general was of a good standard when eating out,...

The previous reviewer's (toomuchtoolittle) description is spot on so I won't repeat it! I would only add that our apartment also had a washing machine so we washed our own sheets and towels which dried in no time on the balcony. Also I would definitely ask for an apartment on the pool side as the views are much nicer. The... More

The Turmalina is well located, we had a great apartment overlooking the pool with a side sea view and a view of the penon de ifach. Well located on the main promenade with a good selection of restaurants, bars and supermarkets on the door step. Apartment was in good condition, bedroom with fitted wardrobe and drawers, twin beds (together) Living... More
