We booked 7 nights at the Husa Alicante Golf because the Hotel Sidi San Juan closed down earlier this year. We last stayed at the Husa 4-5 years ago when it was 5 star. The biggest difference was that staff have been cut by 75%, which meant that each member of staff was doing the same amount of work previously done by 4 and the Husa is now 4 star.
However Spanish 4 star is a different universe from English 4 star, and the service at the Husa was second to none, the room was excellent and the food far exceeded our expectations. We could not believe it when a couple of northerners said that the breakfast was appalling because the scrambled egg and bacon was not hot - for heavens sake there was a full spread of fruit, breads and cold meats with cheese.
The lunches were excellent with a 3 course set meal including one drink for € 20. The waiters were all 5 star trained and therefore first class.
There are plenty of sun loungers in the pool area, with entertainment provided by the many ducks who waddle about - really!!More
