“Good hotel with a great location”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

The location of the Melia is a good start: next to the beach and in the center. Rooms are spacey and I loved the view from the balcony on the sea. The breakfast buffet was very elaborate and the breakfast room had a very nice view on the beach and the sea.

Room Tip: Pick a room with a view on the see.

Nice hotel in well appointed location next to beach. Hotel facilities great and I stayed on the level which was good, wanted for nothing whilst in the hotel. My one and only gripe is the toilet roll holders are too close to the toilet, however I overcame this problem through moving the shower screen slightly thus creating a ledge to stand tge toilet roll on. Due to my genius solution I did not deem it necessary to involve hotel maintenance.

This hotel is so convenient, right on the beach overlooking the sea on one side and the marina on the other side. Staff are so helpful and courteous. It seems to be a hotel mainly used for business guests however is also ideal also for couples and families. I can't wait to return.

We stayed at the Melia for a two day break. The hotel is located right on the beach. Our room was located on the Marina side of the hotel. We would of preferred the sea view but after staying there after 12 noon the sun stays on the marina side. If you want sun then this is the side to be on. We stayed bed and breakfast. The breakfast was fantastic. Choice was amazing. Waiters could not do enough for us. Room was great. Clean and everything you need from shampoo to needle and cotton. They even provide you with cotton buds. We used the wellness centre. 20 euro for as long as you like. The beach is fantastic and right next to the hotel. Would recommend the tourist bus 10euro. See all the sights and hop on and off as much as you like for the day. Would recommend this hotel to anyone and would definitely return without doubt. You have to check out at 12 noon. We asked to stay in room until 2pm. They allowed this at no extra cost. All I can say is for the price this hotel was amazing.

We very impressed with the Melia Alicante as it is in a wonderful position on the side of the Marina right in the centre of Alicante. Our room was overlooking the Marina, meaning it also got the late afternoon sun and some amazing sunsets. It was spacious, with a nice bathroom, a sizeable balcony and free wifi. All staff were friendly and helpful and all areas of the hotel were spotlessly clean.

Breakfast was excellent, absolutely everything you could ask for and served in a large, light and airy room overlooking the beach.

Everything is walkable from the hotel, the town centre, the old town, the elevator to the Castle, the promenades and the Marina.

Stayed there for a business meeting for which the hotel is suited well. I was checked in by friendly staff into a smoker room that stank and was very outdated with stains all over the walls and carpet. The bathroom particularely looked like it seen better days! Asked to get a better non smoker room and was told I would need to upgrade... Got non smoker room that was marginally better but had a stunning view of the beach and the sea. Considering the price tag I can't recommend it but location is great.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view and refurbished room!

The hotel was in the perfect location, beach on one side and the marina on the other. It was lovely to walk out and enjoy the local area, everything right on the doorstep. The hotel was very clean, room was lovely, breakfast was great. We stayed half board, it was good value for money, the only down side for us was the restaurant opening hours 8.30 - 10.30pm, we did find this a little late to be eating a 3 course meal, however this seems to be the norm in Spain. Also the dinner set menu was not ideal if you don't eat fish, but the staff were very friendly and helpful and did alter some of the dishes to suit. The reception staff and bar staff were all very nice, friendly and helpful, would definitely go back

Room Tip: Our room had a lovely view of the marina
