Had a great 11 night stay, bed and breakfast at Hotel Porto Calpe. Had a superior room on 2nd floor with a decent balcony overlooking the little port and the iconic Penon de Ifach. The room and bathroom were fine, newly refurbished, clean, cool, quiet and comfortable, cleaned daily. The only slight negative was the fridge was too small to be of much use, just small mini-bar size and without an ice compartment. The breakfast was plentiful and did the job but exactly the same every day! The star quality of this hotel is the location, overlooking the street and the bar next door but never rowdy so great for people watching. Literally cross the road and you are at the harbour and 1 min walk to the small local Playa Roig beach with fabulous seafood restaurants (although the waiters do pester a bit to try and get you in) and couple of nice little beach bars. 10 mins walk one way is the large Playa Levante backed with tiled promenade and huge choice of cocktail bars, restaurants, etc. 15 mins walk the other side along another promenade overlooking little rocky coves and an ancient Roman baths and you are at the other large Playa Arenal with more good choice of bars and restaurants and another few mins walk up into the old town which has a lovely traditional old Spanish area and restaurant row of great tapas bars, a rooftop restaurant, etc. Calpe is very "Spanish" without an English pub anywhere which was a nice surprise as it's so close to Benidorm, but is ideally located to visit there and Altea by ferry or bus and the huge variety of lovely surrounding places such as Guadalest, Fonts de L'Algar, Moraira, El Portet, Denia, etc. by car. It really is a little gem of a hotel in excellent location which I would highly recommend to anyone wanting a traditional Spanish beach holiday with superb choice for dining out!
