Booked a weeks stay here to get away from it all. Room clean and very comfortable with good quality cotton sheets. Dont agree with other viewers about iffy walk in to main area. If you walk through the linked park areas it is a pleasant stroll and always plenty of people around even in the early hours. Didn't have breakfast but walked in to town where you can get freshly squeezed juice, a coffee and a tostadas for 1 euro 75! Pool is a let down always packed - didnt get to use despite being there for a week. Staff helpful, mix of business guests and tourists. Nice not special but good value for money. Rooms very quiet so you get a good night's sleep even if other guests party until the early hours.

With our friends we took three rooms and were all very satisfied. The rooms are of a good size and well equipped compared to some Spanish Hotels. There are plenty of bathroom requisites available and the air con can be fierce if not adjusted correctly.
Breakfast is the regular continental but they really should include some hot international specialities as it is supposed to be a Marriott.
The swimming pool is small and with airline cabin crew using this place the pool area gets crowded. But if all you want is a good Hotel close to centre of the town and port, this is a good choice.

We stayed in Alicante for 2 nights before travelling on to Barcelona. The hotel 'did a job' in terms of providing my family and I with a bed but the hotel itself is minimalistic with little, if any luxuries. Don't bank on using the pool (which is also minimalistic) unless you want to get out of bed at 7am to bag one of the 6 sunbeds.

If your looking for a bed for the night in the commercial side of the city then this hotel will work for you. If your looking for a 'Marriott' type experience and want to be recognised as a Gold or Platinum member then forget it and find a different hotel

Delighted with our week long stay in the AC Alicante Hotel. The interior is very modern, rooms are very comfortable. The buffet breakfast was very diverse and satisfying - offering fruit, yogurt, cheese, meat, cereals and pastries. The location is in the less attractive end of the city but nonetheless was within a resonable walking distance of all the main attractions and amenities. We quite enjoyed having a 15minute stroll to and from the main entertainment and dining area in the evenings.

Overall, a very nice hotel. Search for a good deal which includes breakfast!

Room Tip: Bus station is across the road from the hotel! Catch a bus from the airport to avoid taxi fares.

I Stayed at the AC hotel last weekend and found one of the best things about the hotel is it is very easy to find. No matter where you are in the city all you need to do is head downhill to the shore and you won’t be too far away. Getting into the centre is a very easy 10-15 walk using the nice walkway build between the two roads

From the airport I got on the airport to city centre bus (2 euro) which drives right past it. You can jump out at the main bus station (just across from the hotel) which is about 15 minutes from the airport.

The room was very clean, quite spacious, with all the facilities I required. The bath in particular is huge so if that’s your thing you are in luck.

Wi-Fi is expensive in the room but you can use it for free in the common areas so not a really a big problem. The pool/pool area is quite small but we didn’t spend much time here. If you were there early enough you’d be able to grab a sun lounger.

For the price of £58 a night I couldn’t ask for anymore. It beats a crappy £70 a night Ibis hotel in the UK any day.

If I went back to Alicante this hotel would be my first choice.

Room Tip: I'd ask for a sea view room

Good hotel, very clean and extremely helpful staff. We travelled with 2 young children and used this hotel as a stop over before an early flight, great location for the airport. Rooms were very clean and nicely decorated, roof top pool was small but pleasant

This hotel is a clean, modern hotel, which is about a 15 minute walk to Alicante city centre and the harbour area. The bedrooms are of an adequate size, clean, well maintained and the bathroom is crisp and modern. Breakfast is buffet style with a wide variety of food available, both hot and cold. The staff are helpful, if a little laid back at times in the Spanish style! There are no tea/coffee making facilities in the room and there is only one English speaking TV channel available.
There is a small pool on the rooftop with a bar area but there is not always someone at hand from whom to order drinks or food but there is a telephone at the pool are to call someone.
I would certainly recommend this hotel, even though it is looking out on one side on a disused industrial area. The central bus station is a 7 minute walk and very convenient for travelling further afield. The airport bus (no 6) can be boarded just outside the station also.
