Very well looked after area, nice and clean, western Europe kind of environment. Bit more for visitors to enjoy our view of Spain ... not too typical Spain .... but worthwhile for a week or two. And Altea is near by, although you can't walk into the Old Town, which is a must see.

Nice property, with a lovely pool bar. We parked at the entrance of the hotel and found it weird that nobody came to help us with the luggage, but reception was close enough. And even though I paid for covered parking, nobody asked for my car keys... I ended just giving my car keys and pointed at my car. Check... More

I've been staying at this hotel a few times. I'm reviewing my recent stay, with my previous stays in consideration. The location of the hotel is pretty ok, but it is in my opinion, important to have the accessibility to a car. The staff is very friendly and quite attentive. Nice ambience in the lobby, gardens and at the pool.... More

We came here in mid July for a three night break, flying into Alicante and hiring a car to make the easy 45 minute drive from the airport.
