We stayed in the hotel for a week in November as a base for a climbing holiday. The twin room was clean and comfortable. There was a nice size balcony with a sea view. There was a little kitchenette in the room whihc you had to ask to be opened. It had a two ring cooker a saucepan, cutlery, plates and fridge so was adequate for making hot drinks or packed lunches. The shower was magnificent!! Just what was needed after a hard days climbing.
Breakfast was OK - plenty of bread, cheese, ham, rolls etc, but the hot food was very imited - we came down to breakfast twenty minutes early one morning and the bacon was already cold! We ate in one evening - it was dire!! Packet mushroom soup , choce of fish or park and what looked like oven chips and most of the puddings were off despite the fact there were only three of us in the restaurant. We had a packed lunch the first day which should have been quite good only the bread was mouldy!
There are two swimming pools whihc we didnt have a chance to try out as the weather was bad , but they looked nice.
The staff are absolutely lovely and friendly and most speak English.
So - OK for a base for exploring, but wouldnt like an acutal holiday in it. There are two big supermarkets nearby. Best place to eat is the Aguamarine - walk down to the sea front - turn right and it is up a little shopping arcade on the right a coupe of hundred yards along. Set menu of the day is 9 euros and it includes an appetiser, starter, salad, main course, dessert, bread and a bottle of house wine. There is also a Greek restuarant in a parallel arcade. As it was November there wasn't much open and it was extemely quiet as you are out of the main part of Calpe.
