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). The location, over looking the sea and a few minutes walk... More

I wa planning to spend this week at the hotel. A last minute medical issue caused me to cancel the booking on day of arrival. The hotel was extremely helpful and understanding and on receipt of a medical notee cancelled the booking without penalty. I look forward to getting there in the near future. Many thanks to the hotel!

We`ve stayed in the hotel few days. Morning view during breakfast is just breathtaking! I dream about this view almost every day! Breakfast itself is exactly as a breakfast in 4* hotel should look like. Big selection of cold cuts, warm dishes, pastry, fruits etc. I just wish they had fresh squeezed juices and the coffee was not up to... More
