Not long back from our one week stay at the El Plantio golf resort in Alicante and I must say I was very very impressed for the cost. The apartment was clean, airy, light and a good size. All the appliances were all new and high-tech and all the windows/patio doors have the electric blind gates. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need and there is a fridge and freezer. IMPORTANT- DO NOT eat or drink ANY food/drink that they provide in the fridge and shelves as everyone knows mini-bars are extortionate.
The showers and en-suite were really nice. The en-suite was a wet-room style bathroom and had a nice sliding frosted door. There is also a laundry room with a washing machine and a tumble dryer- extremely handy!!
The airport is close by and the town is not too far by transport but I highly recommend hiring a car before arriving at this resort. The bus stop is on the left next to the roundabout at the end of the motorway( Takes about a 10 minute walk or 20 minute if with kids, lol). It's not sign-posted so just look out for the bus stop timetable which faces the cars coming onto it.
Taxis cost about €12 to the centre. The bus ( line number 90) costs about €1.50 and stops at the bus terminal which is a short walk away from the centre. Walk along from the bus stop and you will arrive at the lovely marina and kids carnival play area.
There are two swimming pools- one by blocks 1 and 2 and the other is at the blocks next. The pool at the other blocks is longer but much narrower and in my opinion not as nice but there is a small kids play area (swings, climbing frame etc there).The block 1&2 pool has a kids swimming pool within the bigger pool. The pool itself is nice enough (deepest point is 142cm). Very relaxing and quiet around the pool aside from the odd noisy kid but that was kinda cute and funny. There are enough sun loungers for all since not all guests come out at once but even so the grass is nice enough to lie on. The seats and sofas by the bar are nice too- all in the shade and the food is quite tasty. I recommended the Toscado chicken baguette- very yummy! The food menu is the same throughout the day.
Summary- very nice hotel but in the middle of nowhere with no shops so definitely hire a car.
