Got to the hotel around midnight. Quick and easy checkin, short and good information about facility. Nice room, sad view from the window....just concrete walls. Good bed, good bathroom. Smiling and greeting staff all over. Allright breakfast, very nice garden with a little bar. Perfect place if sleepover is needed due to the nearby Alicante Airport.

From the reception area this looks like a lovely hotel. The only reason I didn't request another room however was I arrived late and was only staying one night. The room was a good size and generally smart and comfy but smelt of stale cigarettes although it was supposed to be a non smoking room. I found several hairs in... More

There was a reliable shuttle service to the... More

Just spent the one night at this hotel as it was near the airport (5 mins/€11 for taxi though they do operate a shuttle bus which is worth investigating). The hotel staff were extremely friendly and helpful and I had an upgrade from a double room to a junior suite. There have been mixed reviews about the food at the... More

Stayed there for business, the hotel is close to the airport and well located to get onto the highways for traveling to Murcia, Alicante and surrounds. Staff is friendly and helpful. The food in the hotel is EXCELLENT. Rooms are comfortable and well laid out. Some small corners could be cleaner but otherwise very good. Will stay again.

Nice warm welcome on reception. Very good location near to the airport at Alicante so great for arrival late (like us) or an early departure. Nice courtyard where we had a lovely chilled glass of wine (very reasonably priced). Bar shuts quite early though (by Spanish standards!). Nice breakfast. Underground parking included.
