“All you need with quality!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

First time we suprise when we step in to apartment. Three bedrooms for three men. We ordered two... Apartment was clean and almost luxury, short walk to clubhouse, beautiful view from roof terrace, nice golfcourse in reasonable price, less than 15 min from airport, 15 min to downtown, long swimmingpool beside our apartment. We would choose this one again.

What a pity we stayed there just for 1 night.
The apartment was very big (2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 1 sitting room,kitchen), new, modern and fully equipped. Our balconies overlooked the golf course, a swimming pool and children area. The apartment was faultless: clean and very well maintained. Parking space was available for free.
Breakfast was generous and tasty.

My husband and I stayed in El Plantio in early September. The pictures in the brochures do not do this hotel justice. Our early flight meant our room was not ready when we arrived but despite this, we were given a warm welcome. We originally asked for a room near the pool. When we asked if we could have a room over looking the golf course, this was not a problem and boy was it well worth it. The views were simply stunning. Our apartment was incredibly spacious with all we could want for. We were thrilled to say the least. We had daily cleaning and any encounter with staff was friendly, polite and professional. The free wifi in the apartment was a real bonus despite the odd breakdown. As the complex is out of the city, a car is essential but the peace and tranquillity is something to treasure. This is a golfer's paradise as the course is excellently maintained. While we were "self catering", we did have breakfast a couple of mornings. This is a buffet and the choice was more than ample and sufficient to meet our needs. El Plantio is perfect for golfer's and couples looking for a holiday away from the bustle of holiday resorts. We will be back, there is no doubt.

Room Tip: We had Apt 612 over looking the golf course. Balcony in the shade during the day but has the beauti...

I stayed here in September for 5 nights. I chose this because it is very close to the airport and didnt want to be travelling a great distance or hire a car.

15-20 euros to airport and around the same to the town centre.
On arrival there was no help/trolleys to transport all our luggage to the apartment.
No wifi in apartment (room 201) and the reception was "hit and miss" in the pool area.
Very limited on utilities but wasn't a big deal as we just used what we had.
The biggest negative for me was a few members of staff (mainly in the resteraunt) They didn't seem to welcome us and rushed us when ordering food/drinks.

For me, this didn't ruin our stay but I could ruin others stay!

Overall we had a really relaxing stay and would recommend this resort. However, don't expect a friendly welcome when entering the resteraunt.

The complex is simply stunning, the gardens are lush and green and with great views of one of the two pools or the golf course. The apartments are ultra modern, and comfortable, very spacious and clean. On the whole it is good value for money, and if I come again I will need to be a little better prepared.
The positives:
Bright spacous apartment
Washing machine, tumble drier and dishwasher
Full fridge and freezer
Large natural looking pools
Helpful reception and maintnance (electronic safe failed on a daily basis, we gave up in the end)
Beautiful gardens

The negatives
No welcome pack, so there is absolutely nothing at all (salt, tea, coffee etc). You will need to buy everything you may need.
No cloths for washing up, no liquid or dishwasher tablets
No tea-towels
Apartments noisey
No wifi in the room or pool area
No parasols around the pool
Limited kitchen supplies, no roasting dishes for the oven, only 2 sauce pans and one very small frying pan.
Too few kitchen utencils
Limited furniture on a spacious terrace (only two little chairs)
No washing line or airer to hang beach towels or costumes despite separate utility area (outside)
Pool areas can be very noisy , sound seems to echo like in a sound chamber!!

With very little effort this place could be so much better. On the surface it looks stunning, but then you realise it has been done on the cheap to equip it with essentials which really let it down.

Room Tip: The rooms vary greatly. Ground floor have open terraces but are secluded by bushes etc, some top flo...

We stayed here for five days Aug 13, and yes a car is a must if you want out and about, however if you want quality time with young children and don't want to spend lots of money this is the place to go. The apartments are comfortable, spacious and very well equipped . Visit the supermarket a few miles away, fill your fridge and freezer and cook what you fancy when you fancy it, play with your children by either of the two safe pools or the small play park. The pool side and play areas are grassed and safe. The hotel provides floats and other toys for the kids. No smoking or glass is allowed at the pool and apart from ice cream and snacks there is nothing much to spend money on.
There is no entertainment for older children or adults at this complex and unless you enjoy a good book I the sun you may become bored very quickly, so a car is a must.

Room Tip: All rooms are nice

good: spacious apartment, 2 bathrooms, nice kitchen, washing and drying machine, dishwasher, comfortable distance to Alicante/ Elche/ Benidorm/ beaches/ supermarket; microwave oven

bad:- poor signalized on the road (the GPS data may be useful)
- no privacy for the ground apartment's terrace
- no help from the reception to get to the apt.
- not enough dishes/ mugs/ forks/ knives (family of four)
- no coffee filter (there was something like an ancient coffee maker, not electric, with old molded coffee in it)
- no corkscrew (bought it at Mercadona supermarket)
- no hairdryer (got it from the reception)
- no ironing machine (got it from the reception too)
- no changing beds (unless asked the maid; apparently every 2 days!)
- matresses not very comfy
- dirty tables and chairs at breakfast area
- dirty pool
- muddy area around the pool
- NO wi-fi in room (only at the reception area)
- almost spanish channels only (+BBC and 2 german channels)
Advices: need a car, liquid for washing machine and dishwasher, soap (just a little bar of soap from the hotel)

Room Tip: avoid the suites around the big pool (noisy long into the night because of the restaurant)
