Late flight, can't face the drive just yet ? Stopping here for an over night break could really transform the rest of your trip - really great hotel at prices that can't be beaten ! A recharge will become a standard on all future trips out here - such a brilliant find...

There of us stayed in a lovely modern room but we were disappointed with some crucial elements which are advertised. The massive issue for us was the lack of sound proofing in the rooms. We could not only hear corridor noise but downstairs and the tv next door! This is ok for a hotel that is two stars or lower... More

Stranded in the hotel because the flight was cancelled. The hotel is fine. But do not eat at this hotel. Although the food was paid by the airline. I wouldnt recommend anyone to eat here. Said by a non picky eater.

We went with our team to have one night in waiting for the flight home to Norway, and got surprised about the high standard on the rooms (except bad aircondition) and the other areas in the hotel. We were really happy until we had food that evening. For starter we got a Tuna Salad, with barely tuna in it, and... More

This is what your travel... More

Having stayed here previously, we stayed again as we had an early morning flight, and this is about the closest to the airport. We arrived reasonably late, and there was nowhere open to eat, neither any drinks available, no coffee or tea making equipment in the rooms. Parking was OK in the underground garage. Again as in the previous time,... More

Dear guest, First of all, we really appreciate your trust for coming back again to the hotel. On the other hand, we are not happy that, again, we were not able to cover your expectations. As far as the A/C is concerned, our hotel has only two different types of climate control: warm in winter and cold in summer. Unfortunately,... More

If you are looking for a hotel at the airport than this is it... no more than 5 minutes away. but if you are looking for something down town Elche then this is not it... I should have paid more attention. That said the hotel is clean and well appointed albeit up a street in an industrial suberb close to... More

We both thought the hotel was excellent value for money and very clean, breakfast was adequate but our favourite was the resturant outside, excellent food and good value for money. Would recommend to anybody needing... More

Due to a change in British Airways flight time to Gatwick, we needed a hotel near Alicante Airport, and decided to use the Areca again, hoping that the positive criticism of our last review had resulted in a couple of small improvements!, making this the perfect Airport hotel. Unfortunately, this was not the case. For most people staying here, and... More
