We stayed in a premium room overlooking the bay. Perfect for a rest & and very nice room. Superfriendly staff. The breakfast buffet is ok but the view you have from the breakfast room is super relaxing (seaview).

We decide to go back and booked well ahead for a Level Suite
The reception is on a separate floor and very welcoming
The Room seemed smaller than last time and one heck of a walk from reception but still very nice with a great balcony ,we were on the end of the building so the balcony bent around the corner so we had great views all around ,it was great for people watching
The hotel is situated in a great area and easy walking distance to all of the Alicante area
The Ladies who look after reception and the Level area are the real stars of the Hotel keeping everything topped up
The breakfast down stairs is wonderful and all the staff are great
We are not sure about the turn down service is it out dated two corners of the bed turned down and maybe a fresh towel and the absolutely most terrible thing only one tiny chocolate yes only one little tiny bar of Chocolate
On arrival we asked for diet soft drinks in the mini bar ( free) and all week it was kept topped up
We will not be back its time to move to another area and another Melia Hotel
Hopefully with a room which is not 800 metres from reception and breakfast
Great Hotel well managed and very well trained staff

Room Tip: Book a level room on the fifth floor if you want sun in the morning book a sea view sun in the after...

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.
