First holiday without kids in 22 years and thought we would try an inland hotel. Generally we couldn't fault the hotel, helpful reception, clean rooms, air conditioning
which worked well, en suite bathroom, hair dryer supplied, mini bar if you wanted it.
The rooms were cleaned every day. The hotel is about a 10 minute slow walk in August from the city centre, the area swamped by hundreds of palm trees, so many, that after a few days you don't notice them. The food in the city is pretty basic, unless you go for the high class places. You will find a couple of Irish bars and 1 Scottish bar with not an Irishman or Scot in sight unless they happen to be customers. Plenty of Tapas bars. I would stress the food isn't bad, just limited choice. If you decide to go, I would advise you learn some Spanish or take a phrase book with you as there isn't a lot of English spoken and menus are almost always in Spanish or other languages, but not English. There are a few, but not many. The train station is about a twenty minute walk, keep going past the information centre for about a hundred yards or so and turn right, Station is about 50 yards along. Arrive very early for your desired train as ticket machines didn't work and you will find yourself in a queue which moves at a snails pace waiting to purchase tickets. Trains go to Alicante in one direction and Murcia in the other. Back to the hotel, the food in the cafeteria and restaurant is apparently very good. We didn't try it but others said it was good. The star of the show is the swimming pool, never crowded, could have done with a few more sunbeds. In my opinion this is not a hotel for a family with kids because of it's quiet location, more suited I feel for couples who don't particularly want a beach holiday. Having said that I would highly recommend the hotel. I close with two little niggles, in case the hotel reads this, I booked a double room and pushing two single beds together does not constitute a double, which newlyweds wouldn't have appreciated, although we didn't fall into that bracket, and the second niggle is even more trivial. I had to ask several times on a daily basis for shampoo in the bathroom, which was part of the deal only to be given a couple of 20ml sachets which last for one shower each. So, overall conclusion, first class hotel, with almost nothing to fault.
We were in 119. No noise experienced.
