We booked this hotel mainly due to the location being close to the aiport but also for the brand of HIE which we have used elsewhere in the past.
The location could not have been better in regard to the airport but there is nothing else around and car/taxi is required if you wish to visit Alicante or even go to a shop. The hotel has vending machines with sandwiches and drinks which I would only recommend as an emergency bite to eat.
We had booked a sea view room which we were not given. I called the reception from the room when I seen our view was of another building (through filthy windows) to be told I was advised of this on arrival (this must have been in Spanish as I certainly was not told this in English).
There was no kettle in the room and when I called at Reception to request one, the receptionist removed a note selotaped to one in a box and handed it to me. As I was in the lift I had a closer look at the kettle and I noticed the wires inside were bare and there was no on/off switch. I returned to reception and was provided with another kettle (no apology!!) On inspection again I thought the wires looked insecure however on return to the room, I plugged the kettle in which promptly blew the electricity in the room and an electrician had to be called. eventually the kettle was replaced and the power restored to the room.
We attended the restaurant for a meal. The waitress was great although she was run off her feet trying to tend to all the guests in the restaurant as well as serving the guests at the bar while the receptionist was outside chatting to colleagues. The meal I have to say was excellent. We had the Bruchetta and mushrooms to start followed by pizza and burgers. It was very nice.
We also had breakfast. We had to ask at reception for the meat and cheese to be replaced as there was none on the dishes and no staff around to request this. Eventually we had what we needed. There was ample bread, pastries, cereals and drinks (hot and cold) available.
I suppose you only get what you pay for and this time that was the case. HIE now a disappointment for us and we will need to rethink any future use of this hotel
