“Excellent hotel and value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2014

Booked up for a last minute week abroad, found this hotel on trip advisor. Great hotel, 5 minutes walk to the beach at San Juan about 6km's from Alicante. Room spotless, food in hotel great. Staff brilliant. Pool spotless, certainly caters for families as well. It is one hotel I would certainly go back to out of this world

Room Tip: Perhaps ask for a room NOT above the pool, otherwise can't find fault in the slightest

This is the second time my wife and I have stayed here. Rooms are clean spacious but tired. Having said that for the price it is great value. Well serviced by Trams and Buses, a short walk to the beach and Playa de San Juan central. Don't expect international cuisine its all very Spanish. The sunbeds around the pool have a habit of collapsing. this can be quite hilarious when watching newcomers! However the are old and dangerous, the girl at reception assured me that they were being replaced shortly (trouble is they said that last year too).

Overall for the money cant beat it.

Stayed 11 nights here 27th April to 8th May on bed and breakfast. Well situated for the brilliant beach of Playa San Juan and plenty of restaurants/shops within walking distance. Good size rooms kept clean by friendly maid service, friendly and helpful reception desk and good value hot buffet breakfast and bar prices as good as local bars. The hot part of the breakfast needs to be monitored a little better,If there was no eggs or bacon left it was a 20 minute wait for fresh. Thank you for a lovely stay.

We checked in on 22/05 after leaving another hotel due to bad location and no pool. When we arrived the receptionist was very friendly and helpful, our room was spacious and clean. The pool area was small but clean and ideal for my 7 yr old. We paid for b&b and we were very pleased with the breakfast it includes egg, bacon, fruit, cereal,pastries and more. When we asked about a fridge the receptionist arranged for the mini bar to be emptied so we could use the fridge. The beach is 10 min walk max and is a lovely beach, there's a supermarket 5 mins away, more shops and restaurants 5 mins away. Overall for the money we paid no complaints.

Most staff we friendly, (the new girl was lovely) and what I expected, the rooms are quite large and value for money, the only reason we have not given a 5 was because the room still smelt of Cigarette Smoke when checking in and is not normal holiday inn standards. Great sun trap outside with lovely palm tree decoration. Will stay again.

Room Tip: Ask for a non smoking room!

I spent two nights here in Nov 2013. The hotel is clean, friendly and well-priced. I took my meals in the hotel restaurant and while the food was just okay, the prices were good, the portions ample and the service always pleasant. For anyone traveling to Alicante on business or for a beach break (the beach is an easy 10 minute walk), consider this hotel. The only really obvious flaw I saw was hallway carpeting that desperately needs replaced - fortunately the rooms were much nicer than the hallways.

Lovely hotel, clean, good breakfast, friendly staff and great value for money. We are just back from staying there for a week over the Christmas and New Year period. From beginning to end, we really enjoyed our stay. We are regular visitors to Alicante and we have stayed in many other hotels around the area, however value for money, this is the best hotel we have stayed in and we will return. Very nice little bar area for coffee in the morning or a drink in the evening. Less than a 10 minute walk to the beach, which is just perfect. Nice pool area and padel courts.

Stayed January 2014, traveled with family
