Me and my wife stayed at this hotel from the August 1 til August 08 and were thoroughly pleased. We booked a double apartment without breakfast for a very good price (will not mention it though for hotels sake and because everyone has a different perspective of what is cheap and what is not). We arrived a little after midnight which was not a problem as the reception is open 24 hours.
The room we were given the first night was on the first floor and as my wife is a little difficult sleeper we asked to be moved to a higher floor were she wouldn't hear people waking by (we did mention this in the booking but they seemed to have overlooked this). The next day we were moved to a 4 floor (3 in Spanish terms) without any problems. The apartment was very similar with aircon in the living area (none in the bedrooms) that was equipped with a small 27 inch tv (but who cares, you didn't come all the way to Alicante to watch tv), a sofa bed, a small storage space and a dining table; the kitchen had a good refrigerator, an oven, and everything for your dining needs such as cutlery, dishes, cups etc; the bedroom(s) were also very nice with closets and a nice bed (mattress good). The bathrooms were very good but if the hotel reads the review I would recommend they install an odor extractor. The balcony we had overlooked the pool area and was also nice. The room was always clean and we barely noticed our neighbors. The pool was open from 10 - 22 (10 a.m. to 10 p.m.) and was very nice. We had read about pool parties but IMO I think they were way to stressed out and were in the wrong place as 22 is not late (just barely dark at that hour in the summer time).
Another thing we had read was the location. Quite frankly I think for the extra price of staying downtown you still are paying less for transport and hotel at this location. You can buy a TAM card that you can recharge for a minimum of 7 euros which gives you 10 fares (you can transfer without paying another fare) but you can also pay more and it gives you more fares at a greater discount. The hotel is a 15 minute bus ride away but we didn't mind at least. The bus stops in front of the hotel at certain hours (ask reception). There is also a small beach just 5 minutes waking distance from the hotel which is completely ok (not the most beautiful but serves the purpose). Taxi to hotel at night is 7 euros from the center, from the airport is around 17, and to the airport is around 12-15 euros. I consider that very good compared to my hometown (Reykjavik, Iceland).
The reception staff was very helpful and very friendly.
All in all we loved the stay and would come back if we returned.
