“Disappointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2013

The plan was, that staying closer to the Airport, and getting a good night's sleep, would make our rather long journey (US, via UK)., less stressful. Unfortunately, it did not work out to plan.
The hotel is very attractive inside, and the gentleman on Reception was very helpful with parking ,and luggage etc.
The room was clean, not very well lit, but adequate.
There are no tea/coffee making facilities in the rooms(not in ours anyway!)
What is important: Ask for a quiet room.-The hotel is on an industrial site, and, unfortunately, the noise from the lorries went on most of the night.
Check the air conditioning is adequate, before you get ready for sleeping. We didn't, and found we could not turn it down, and the room was hot, and stuffy. As the AC seems "Set", I imagine all rooms would be the same.
I booked a "Package"", which included a full breakfast. This also proved to be a mistake, as we found the breakfast offered to be about the worst we have ever seen. Just some congealed scrambled eggs, and, thin, fatty bacon was the difference between Full breakfast, and Continental (which was also poor, in choice, and quality).
There are no hotels directly at Alicante Airport, but, there other hotels close by. Sadly, I feel I made the wrong choice.

We stayed here at the end of November, before an early morning flight.
The hotel looks impressive, and the Receptionist was very helpful, in sorting out car parking, and helping with the luggage, however, that's where it ended.
The room was OK but as the air conditioning would not work properly, it was extremely warm during the night, and made it difficult to sleep, as well as the fact that the hotel is situated on an industrial estate, and it was very noisy with all the large transporters moving around.
The worst part was the breakfast, which was disgusting, and almost inedible, so much so, that we left early and ate at the airport.

Room Tip: Choose another hotel.

Weekend is not set up to care for customers. Receptionist was not available on arrival and necessitated a phone call to the hotel to wake her up. The reception staff had little or no local knowledge.
Restaurant is a disaster with a menu that would more suit a motorway service station. Unfortunately being located on an industrial estate, the only option was a €40 round trip taxi ride to Alicante to find some decent food.
No courtesy bus is available for the trip to the airport. This means a €20 taxi ride that takes 10 minutes!! One of the most expensive taxi trips you can find locally!!!

Very nice hotel close to Alicante airport, views aren't much, but good nicely decorated and pleasant hotel, less than 10 mins from airport. Usually stay here or the Areca at Torrellano.
Restaurant and bar nice, quiet and good value.

Spent few times a week working in Elche Parc Empressarial. Elche Holiday Inn hotel offers very friendly atmosphere, quiet place to relax after a busy day. The restaurant manager takes always very nice care of his guests. Restaurant offers local specialities, wide range of Spanish excellent wines and little snacks as jamon, olives, oveja cheese, etc. Very nice, spacious and comfortable rooms nicely equipped and with very very comfortable beds, offering 6 types of pillows, just choose one. Hotel offeres fitness and sauna, internet wifi is not strong enough in rooms - use lobby bar or restaurant. It is about 5 minutes from Alicante airport. 20 EUR by taxi.

Great location, very near to Alicante airport. We booked one night stay, comfortable and clean. We wanted to eat out in the evening but didnt find any suitable restaurants around the area within walking distance, so we opted to eat something light from the hotel restaurant. Not too impressed with the food, but the service was great,

Stayed 2 nights whilst on a business trip, clean, tidy, pleasent staff. Very quiet however that may be due to it location on an industrial estate. Nothing in the area apart from a few very good outlet stores for shoes and sporting goods that were excellent value for money.
Breakfast was adequate juice fruit pastries eggs and bacon.
All in all fit for purpose and close to airport for return journey
