“Great stay in Sept 2009”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2009

We stayed at this hotel in mid September and found all aspects of the hotel very good. The Hotel and room was very clean. Very nice bedroom and bathroom. Liked the roof swimming pool. Staff friendly, helpful and efficient. Breakfast included in our booking price and was satisfactory. Had one evening meal in hotel restaurant and this was fine, although limited menu.
Liked the free mini-bar in hotel bedroom.
Hotel decor in good condition although a little dark for our tastes but this did not detract from our stay.
Hotel just a little to far from the main city tourist areas and beach, particularly when weather is hot for walking.
Airport bus (C6) very good value and stops just round corner from hotel.
Overall a very good hotel and value for money.

My partner and I stayed at AC Alicante for 3 nights recently and it was great - really clean, modern, great rooms and the sauna/jacuzzi and pool were a definite bonus. As far as location is concerned it was absolutely perfect for us. It's only a 20 minute leisurely and very safe stroll to town and the marina. This also gave us the chance to get off the main 'drag' onto the smaller, less busy streets to investigate. We found something different almost every day. We walked everywhere from our base, even to the castle and it really wasn't hard work (and I'm by no means a hiker by nature).

The staff at the hotel were friendly and most spoke some English. We only ate breakfast there, and only once. It was quite pricey though. The bar area looked inviting but we didn't venture there. The only downside to the hotel? Definitely the view from the roof but the roof's well worth the visit for the pool alone.

Neither of us speak Spanish (our own ignorance) so we sometimes struggled in Alicante but it was fun nonetheless. Especially in a restaurant - we never quite knew what we were going to get... Alicante is definitely the place to go if you want a proper Spanish experience and don't want to be bombarded with lager monsters and burgers.

Oh, and much to my relief, we didn't see a single prostitute hanging around the hotel (as per other reviews) - maybe they don't come out in September?

stayed at AC in 12th thru 19th September. this hotel is excellent. it suffers from one thing. the areas either side are the land that time forgot. alicante seems to finish at the marina.
has money ran out? comfortable room all mod cons.
breakfast buffet needs changing occasionally. no hot food! location was fine. you need to walk off your meals. great choice in Alicante. hotel was hust over 5 mins from Calle Maisonnaive the main shopping artery. also the C6 airport bus can take you to Plaza Del Mar shopping mall. stop abouit 200 yards from hotel. fare to airport is 2.60 euros. our taxi cost 16.50 euros. did see ladies of the night in various sites around the town including the docks about 300 yards from hotel. hey this is a big town and it does happen. i would suggest that you approach the hotel from the rear after dark if you feel awkward.

the swimming pool is small but has great views. overall i would recommend this hotel and alicante for a great holiday.

9/10
