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

We stayed here for a week in July 2015. It's hard to find fault with the hotel without being picky. The pool area is very good and towels are provided every day. There was certainly plenty of room at the pool and no problem getting a sun bed. The beach is actually very nice in my opinion despite being pebbly.... More

Second year in a row that we book this hotel. Great atmosphere, fantastic swimming pool, great spa. The breakfast buffet is more than fulfilling our high expectations. Only bad point is the free Wi-Fi, routers are not strong enough to reach all the rooms, we had no connection in our room.

We never usually stay in the samed place twice. But because this hotel ticks all the boxes we booked again. We spent four days here during May. The hotel was not busy which was great for us. The pool area was quiet as there were not a lot of guests at this time. We stayed on the third floor with... More

Great hotel well worth the visit, staff very helpful couldn't do enough for you. Great surroundings and very clean. Only thing I recommend is that there were more things to do in the evening as only one bar. Nice restaurants with great food. Parking is easy.

Excellent hotel, nice big and clean rooms. Great locations right on the water and friendly staff. However, except from the reception staff, most other employees only speak Spanish, which made it a little difficult to communicate. I guess it has its charm. And then again, I could learn to speak Spanish, it is afterall the most widespread language in the... More
