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...

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.

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.

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

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
