Can't really fault the hotel itself. Bedroom/bathroom were spacious and very clean although you had to pay for the fridge. The rooms that were to the middle of the building don't have any privacy at all on their balconies as you are overlooked by everyone (my sister had room 368 which was on the outer side of the building(at the front) and beatiful views onto the beach). Roof terrace/pool had wonderful views. Most of the staff (especially the reception staff and cleaners) were very nice/friendly and helpful. Easy to travel by bus to Altea or Benidorm.
Downfall for me was the restaurant and choice of food - breakfast was great, dinner was not so great. If you don't like lots of fish/seafood there's not much of a selection (only one meat available most nights including sheep's head!). Chicken was not on the dinner menu at all when we were there. Ended up eating mostly chips/potatoes with salad and bread. Every night the "hot food" at dinner wasn't hot but only just luke warm which wasn't very good. The sweets weren't up to much either. Have been to 4 star hotels in the Costa Blanca before and the food was far superior to this.
Overall, would possibly go back to this quiet hotel but only bed and breakfast.
