“A 'gem' of a hotel.....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

I was looking for a hotel where I could have complete rest and relaxation for a week. I was on my own, so I hoped I had chosen well and I was not disappointed.All the staff were very kind and friendly.My room was spacious and clean with a kitchen, so I could prepare my own food if I wanted to. The small shop on the lower ground floor stocked everything I needed for my stay.I had a big balcony with fantastic views over the sea.The beach was reached by walking through the very pretty gardens and the tennis courts. You could have a sunbed and sunshade, but at 9 euros perhaps a bit costly.Or you could stay by the lovely pool area.This hotel met all my needs and I had a wonderful rest.It was great to sit on my balcony and watch al the tennis matches - especially the group from Norway !But if you want a more lively holiday then you must stay in Benidorm.I will return to this hotel as it is in a beautiful location and to me was a little gem of a place.

The location of the hotel was a bit problematic for a person without a car. The distances to the village of Villajoyosa and for example to a tram stop were too long to walk in + 30 C heat (with an 8 year-old) and therefore a lot of money was spent on taxi rides and bus fares. On the other hand, the surroundings of the hotel were very peaceful and nice, especially the beach nearby. The pool area of the hotel was good, rooms ok and service friendly. The food served in the restaurants of the hotel was mostly quite bad, for example chicken in the beach restaurant was a bit raw and the dinner buffet a fiasco. Breakfast was something that could be dealt with, but not by any means enjoyed. The bed in the room was hard as a rock, but the room was otherwise nice and air conditioning worked.

Room Tip: Take a room with a balcony

Dear guest,

We thank you your comment.

Our location is one of our most important features. Peaceful and quiet. We understand that if you come without a car and would like to go to the village of Villajoyosa it can be a nuisance, especially if you come with a child.

I regret that your perception of the quality of food in our restaurants does not meet your standards. We try our best to offer you a high standard of food. Regarding the grill barbecue on the beach kitchen, one can always ask the cook to prepare your food to your liking.

Regarding the beds, it is hard to predict the tastes of all customers. some find them rather hard and others find them rather soft

We hope you give us another chance and visit us in the near future.

Kind regards

I run a tennis holidays group and we were looking for a place with good courts and somewhere to relax, have fun and enjoy ourselves - we found 17 tennis courts at Eurotennis and all the above! The hotel staff were friendly and accomodating. We had booked half board and had plenty of delicious food both at breakfast and dinner. There was a good range of activities including aqua aerobics, also lots of activities for children. An amazing view, sea and private beach! This place is a gem and even the manager took time to show us other parts of the resort - great and personable man. There is a small bus on the hour which takes you into town and its very cheap. Also, if you plan properly you can take a bus from the airport with a change or two along the way instead of paying for cab. Made so many friends.I cannot wait to return to Eurotennis!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Room Tip: You can take a bus form the airport instead of a cab.

My friend and I didn't have very high expectations having read negative reviews. We were wonderfully surprised at how much fun can be had at this great resort. We are both tennis nuts and had many, great games. We enjoyed the Aqua Aerobics in the pool each morning and made lots of great friends. It was so easy to meet people and have great fun. The food was great and the staff could not have been more friendly and accommodating. As for the view - stunning! We're going back very soon...

We had a week at Eurotennis and found it to be a good choice. It is a three star, although in many ways we felt the rating did not match the reality in that we felt it was better. The staff are very good and were universally helpful and pleasant. The hotel itself is clean and tidy and the facilities are fine. There is only a contintental breakfast on offer, although again this was well presented and perfectly acceptable and of good quality.

The hotel location is a good news, bad news story really, in that it is very near the sea next to a nice little pebble beach .and you can walk to the really good tram service (about 15-20 mins at Paradis) although it is not signposted and you have to follow your intuition a bit to find it. It is a good service though and very reasonably priced. Little further to town than you would think. If you have a car it is all fine fine though.

The room is fine but make sure you have one with a balcony and on an uipper floor to get the best of the view. The pool is really good and was never packed and a sunbed was always availaible.

Room Tip: Make sure you get a balcony views are better all face the sea by the way.

Hotel was only fifth occupied and this was reflected in the service provided in the restaurant. The breakfast was pretty basic continental buffet style. The evening meal was a one-choice wonder. As we are vegetarians, the waiter, Antonio, tried hard to ask the chef for something suitable. The chef did manage to provide a salad and chips (11.00 euros each) for the first night and salad and spaghetti in cheese sauce for the second. We ended up saving a lot of money by doing self-catering in the apartment or eating out, with a choice! The kitchen has enough basic items to be able to throw a meal together.
Room cleaning was daily and the standard was very good.
Wi-fi is only available near the Reception.
Room was spacious enough with twin single beds (beds are extremely hard), small kitchen area, bathroom and balcony. This looked out over the small cove and tennis courts.
We used a torch in the corridors as lighting was minimal.
As Brits, we were in the minority as there were more Spanish people staying than other nationalities, so we felt a little isolated when the staff had animated conversations with them in preference to talking to us.
The hotel advertised itself as having a supermarket on the premises. It was down in the basement and was closed for the whole time we were there. It didn't look as if it was going to open any time soon. Perhaps it's just for the high season?
We didn't use the sauna or gym so can't comment on those.
Because of the lack of ambiance, we ended up using the hotel as a base, touring with a hire car each day. If you're looking for a cheap(ish) hotel to base yourself then this is OK, but please have a car hire. It's quite a distance from the town of Villjoyosa.
Some of the apartments seemed to be privately owned / long term let.
This holiday was for my teenage daughter and myself. Luckily, we get on well!

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony room.

We thank you for having chosen our hotel and as well for your comments. All critics are very helpful in order to improve our services in efficiency and quality.

We regret the omission of information that our mini-supermarket is only open during the main season and accordingly it will be done now.

By knowing in advance special meal requests (such as vegetarian food) this gives us time to provide the kitchen with the necessary products.

Best regards

Recently returned from 2 week stay with my husband and 12 year old son. Very friendly, hardworking and helpful staff. Rooms were cleaned every day. On reflection, we would of preferred a room with three beds instead of one bed and a sofa but managed. View from our balcony was outstanding. Food was good. The pool was clean and the surroundings where very picturesque. Just to note the gym and spa was closed! Would return if there was more entertainment of an evening.

Room Tip: 311-2 for a good alround view
