We stayed here September 2014 1 night when we arrived then at the end of our holiday in Mojacar we stayed again before flying home. 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

Dear guest, We are really sorry that you could not rest properly. Although we think that our rooms are correctly insulated from the outter noise, it could happen that is not enough for some of our clients. In that case, I would suggest to take a room facing to the other part of the hotel, which is much more quite.... More

The hotel is very 5 min drive away from the Alicante terminal which is very convenient if you are travelling or working there. The hotel is situated in the town of Torrellano with bars and supermarkets nearby but not many attractive options for the demanding traveller. Alicante city is only 20 min away by taxi offering plenty of options for... More

This hotel is situated within a10 minute drive of the airport. The staff are friendly and speak English. The rooms are clean and furnished simply but with everything that is required for an overnight stay. There is a pleasant bar that has a selection of snacks, or needing something more substantial the restaurant has a very reasonable menu. We would... More

Stayed at the hotel after arriving late into Alicante airport (and also the night before our early flight out) and this is a decent airport hotel. There is very little to do around the hotel though (it was a bit like a ghost town), so recommend the 20 minute drive into central Alicante if you are looking for somewhere for... More

Booked by company entertaining us on overseas trip for last night before flight home. Public areas and rooms of good standard, bit of a 'wobbly' shower tray floor, but not a problem. Restaurant nice, food OK. Handy shuttle bus to airport but needed air con. Recommended for airport stay.

Taxi 12 euros from airport which was very steep because it's only about 1.5 km. I think we were ripped off. Reception man was ok. We asked about the swimming pool for the next day he said... More
