It is a four-star hotel, it says so by the door. You can also tell by the decor; restaurant; room; spa and lifts. But not through the price! Missed breakfast as I left too early. Shame really as the offered "picnic" did not match the rest of the stay. Both staff I met were excellent people people. For the cost... More

5 minutes drive from my family in El Altet (staying here meant the grandchildren didn't have to share a bedroom at home!); 10 minutes drive from Alicante Airport; 4 minute walk to train station. Spotlessly clean; friendly, helpful staff. Only quibbles: a) Aircon didn't work properly although we tried every combination of controls imaginable; window stays open only if you... More

We were put up in this lovely hotel for 2 nights when our flight was cancelled by Ryanair on 26th January. The hotel is very nice with a small indoor pool and spa with steam room and sauna. Breakfast was very nice and food in the bar was also very good and not too pricey. The staff in this hotel... More

This hotel is only 5-10 minutes from Alicante airport so is great if you have an early morning flight. The rooms are spacious and clean and quite modern. The sound-proofing both between rooms and for external noise is poor. The restaurant is fine and the cafeteria offers good value.

One night here for leisure. Enjoyed it, fresh rooms and nice and clean. Only bad thing was that it was no door between the bathroom and the "room". Also a nice spa included when you stay. In general of the better hotels o ve been to in Spain.

This hotel is so close to the airport. 5 minutes transfer. Hotel shuttle available 5 days from Monday to Friday. Staff are extremely helpful, courteous , nothing is too much trouble. The junior suites are worth the extra money, slippers, jacuzzi bath, dressing gown, 2 tvs. The bar is comfortable, prices very good, €2 for a glass of Rioja .... More

Very reasonably priced, modern comfortable hotel which is the closest to Alicante airport of various hotels I have stayed. It was great after getting lost on previous trips from various hotels in Elche, Alicante town and Alicante hills, to access the airport so easily. Has a small swimming pool which is free and has a jacuzzi and sauna. Rooms facing... More

We had a late flight into Alicante and didn't want to do the drive so booked into the Areca for the night. First and importantly for an airport hotel, great value for money. We paid 47.50 euro for a double room. On arrival the reception staff were friendly and helpful. The room was a good size, large, comfy bed and... More

This hotel won an award from you in 2010 No idea why? Our visit was a disaster. We booked a double room which was actually a twin room with the 2 single beds pushed together. The beds were hard and lumpy. The food was appalling, undercooked and cold and they couldn't evenue provide a cup of tea other than herbal.... More
