THE GROUP - 3 girls in early 20's
FIRST IMPRESSIONS - very tall hotel! (19 floors apprx) Rude man at reception, small-ish pool. Bar, Internet points. Young clientele. 24hr reception
ROOM - comfy, modern and new furniture, nice size balcony, peaceful, clean, no bugs! Nice bathroom, lots of towels, lots of hot water. Excellent view (we were on 17th floor!)
HOTEL - The hotel was probably a 50minute drive from Alicante airport, and cost roughly 80eu. The pool bar staff were really nice, and the food they sold was alright too! Drinks and food were not expensive. The pool was clean and although there weren't many sun loungers, everyone seemed to get one. The clientele of this hotel was mainly large groups of scottish blokes,who were really loud all day/night. The week we were there they had 4 groups (around 25-35blokes per group)staying. So it was busy! We didnt mind this but I wouldnt recommend this hotel for families with small children, or anyone looking for peace and quiet! The hotel staff were miserable as hell!! Considering the majority of people staying here were in their 20's-30's and on stag/hen do's you would think they'd have expected some noise!! We had two room calls telling us we would be removed from the hotel in the morning (They had the wrong room!!) Our neighbours noise wasn't so bad that we felt the need to complain so I doubt reception heard them from 17 floors away! They just weren't very relaxed!!
LOCATION - Right next door to a 24hr bar/restaurant 'Angelo's' (Great fun had here!!) The food was shocking I wouldnt eat there! but we stayed til the late morning drinking many a night. Turn right once you leave the hotel and straight is the only way!! It was around a 2min walk (Straight road, cross the 1st junction and on the left) to a row of really nice british run restaurants, great food and reasonable prices!
It was a 15min walk to the beach (Straight down road, cross 2 junctions turn right) It was a straight road to the square aswell, just cross 3 junctions and its on the left , where you'll find all the main bars and clubs. These are all really good, especially Beachcomber.
On the first night we got a cab to the square, but we walked there and back every night after this, it took exactly 20mins but seemed alot quicker.
I would go back here without a moments hesitation! It was a cheap holiday, but really really fun!! The people we met at the hotel made our holiday, it wouldnt have been the same without the poolside entertainment (watching 40 northern blokes ridiculing the 'stag') We loved the 24hr bar next door!! and being within a walking distance to the clubs and bars!
