“Great Apartments”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2008

We stayed in the Hipocampos for 7 nights at the beginning of May. We had originally booked a one bedroom apartment at the Turmalina, but were moved to the Hipocampos on arrival. We were prepared for this after having read some reviews that said it might happen. It was to our advantage as the Hipocampos is much more modern.

We had a lovely one bedroom apartment on the 8th floor with sea views. It was very comfortable with a bid double bed, nice bathroom, well equipped kitchen with hob and washing machine. There was also a nice dining/living room - although it was hard finding an english speaking TV channel even though they had satellite. The balcony was huge and had a table and chairs and two sun loungers. The bathroom wasn't as clean as it could have been, but that's our only complaint. The on site janitor guy did a great job at the upkeep of the whole block.

The apartments are on the second beach in Calpe, so it's a bit of a walk (but pleasant) around the headland to the old town of Calpe. When we were there the second beach was quieter than the one closer to the old town, which was good.

There were quite a few nice bars and restaurants nearby (the mosquito bar and coconuts) and we ate in a really lovely french restaurant at the end of the beach called La Regatta, which I would certainly recommend for fresh local seafood (the garlic prawns were fab!). There were also 2 big supermarkets within a 5 minute walk along the road which was handy as the apartments were self contained.

We used our apartment as a base for exploring further inland too. There are some stunning walks up in the mountains and May is a lovely time to go as it's not too hot and the wild flowers are still in bloom. We also climbed the Penon de Ifach while in Calpe which was definitely worthwhile for the views (although watch out for swooping seagulls trying to protect their young!).

Overall, our stay at Hipocampos was great and I would definitely recommend it to others.
