We had a room towards the right of the hotel as you look at the front which was nice as it was quiet. The room was very spacious and clean. The staff were the real heart of this hotel - every single one was welcoming, helpful and polite. They were attentive without being overbearing. The food in the restaurant near... More

We traveled with an 11 year old child, and this hotel was great for two nights. Three pools and many kids made for an exceptional holiday for our daughter. If my husband and I were alone, I am not sure I would stay here because of all the children. The room was large, clean and with standard furniture. It was... More

Had another awesome 10th annual visit to the hotel in August.The staff are so welcoming - especially Attic and Jose at the bar. The hotel remains well managed & meets all of our extended family's needs. Fab breakfast & a decent entertainment programme to end each amazing day.

This was the third time we have stayed here and have enjoyed our stay very much.Excellent hotel with young children as the swimming pool is so safe and the breakfast has everything one would want. Hotel staff very friendly and efficient . The beach is also very accessible from the hotel and close to a golf course.

Stayed for 4 nights, check in was faultless and the staff were incredibly helpful and friendly, advising us on where to visit, drink, eat and park! The room we were allocated was clean, huge and was more like a suite, with a great bathroom, separate sitting room, balcony and outside jacuzzi. We were greeted with Cava and chocolates, which was...

Based in Gadea, it's only a 20 euro cab ride from Calpe. Stayed here June 21st to 28th. As a single traveller this hotel caters to mostly families with small children. There is no evening nightlife at this hotel, as all the parents and children are fast asleep by 8:00pm. However Calpe and Altea are only minutes away. Make sure... More
