Some hotels are run for the convenience of guests, some, like this, for the convenience of the hotel management. What is a double room? I expect a double bed. When booking I had concerns as no "doubles" were offered, only "two beds". So when I arrived I specifically asked for a double and was told all rooms had 2 single... More

This must be one of the finest Hotels on the Costa Blanca. Its location so close to the beach and local amenities is a definite plus, together with the professionalism and friendliness of its Staff. Its Apartments are fully furnished and really spacious, especially if you also have young children travelling with you. The breakfast range is immense, but it... More

My husband stayed here on business and I was lucky enough to go along. It is first class all the way without any pretensions. Warm, friendly, helpful and welcoming staff, very comfortable and spacious rooms, fantastic food (don't miss breakfast and at the price it is top quality food).
