We had 3 bedroom apartment rented for 2 week in the end of march 2014. Our family contains 2 adults and 3 kids (ages 4, 6, 9 yrs). The location of the hotel is splendid in the middle of the town of Calpe and still straight on the coastline near beach. This was major advantage when we chose our accommodation... More

The hotel offers some nice spots, nevertheless generally speaking the installations, service and atmosphere are rather disappointing. The hotel is really huge but at the same time it is not prepared for receiving a lot of visitors. The swimming pool is tinny, the swimming pool lounge area has only 6 double beds and there are lines to get to the... More

Apartments are spacious and modern as are hotel rooms. Food is excellent & staff are friendly, helpful & very accommodating! Nothing was a chore for them. You leave one... More

The hotel has improved even more since our last visit 3 years ago. It really is a lovely hotel and you could not... More

Everything about this hotel is fantastic in my opinion. The location is great, right on the beach, calpe has retained it´s unspoiled Spanish character. All the staff are amazing, so friendly and helpful, this is my third visit and some always remember me which is nice. The rooms are excellent with great amenities and spotlessly clean. I upgraded to a... More

I went to this hotel some time ago already, it was April, so not to much tourist in the area. The reason for the travel was to assist to a friend's wedding at the swimming pool area in the hotel. The room was excellent with a superb view to the sea from a high floor (the 10th if my memory... More
