Nice hotel, quiet location.

Pros: Free car parking spaces. Room cleanliness.
Cons: Sound insulation of walls.
Location: Slightly outside city centre but it was ok for us was we had a car to commute. Overall a 15 - 20 minute drive to city centre or beaches of Alicante.
We only stayed the hotel during the night, and time it was very quiet and peaceful. Room was very clean and tidy as expected. However in the morning, we realised the room did not have good quality sound insulation and we could heart people talking in the next room and while walking in the corridors. Hotel staff was friendly and professional. However, the hotel did not have any travel adapters for customers to borrow overnight or stay. For international passengers this can sometimes be a problem if they forget to carry one with them. Over all, consecrating the price I paid for two nights it was not a bad deal. Ample of parking spaces were available, which otherwise would have been very difficult to find something near by on roads.

Perfect Stay

Hotel was spotless. Rooms were clean , beds were comfy, some staff were friendly and helpful. Wi-Fi hit and miss. Pool area was lovely with lots of sun beds, outdoor pool bar was not open while we were there. Breakfast was great with loads of choices hot and cold. Beach was fab and only a 10 minute walk. Lots of lovely local eateries close by. Trams easy to get too and close . We would come back again.

Outdated hotel

Cons: Decor and food quality
1980’s hotel decor in 2017. Needs a serious facelift and updated tv’s. Shower gel on the tiles in the bathroom and dirty marks throughout the room still there 3 days later. Beds on wheels and even with the brakes on you slide around the room when you move. Poor quality food in the restaurant for 15€, pay the same price in restaurants nearby and a lot better quality, the walls looked like coffee had been thrown over them.

ok hotel

when people think about holiday inn brand, this hotel is not up there comparing with other holiday inn i have stayed, hotel is surrounded by big block of flats, front staff were helpful but not much smile in their faces. room looks lit bit out dated old CRT tv still there. Everyday early morning road works noises. It is very near to sea front approax 7 to mins walk, which is not bad. Good swimming pool, been told off by restaurant staff not to sit in certain place because we were only drinking not eating. over all it is ok

Kein WLan im Zimmer

Fehlendes WLan in den Zimmern obwohl in der Anzeige des Hotels dies aufgeführt ist. Entspricht heute absolut nicht dem Standard eines 4* Hotels.

Hotelli oli ihan ok ,ei mitään luksusta, eikä huonommastakaan päästä. Lakanat puhtaat, siivous toimi, varustetaso ok, aamupala ok, vaikkakin ei kuulunut huoneen hintaan, aika arvokas. Huoneissa ei toiminut WiFi vaikka kuvauksessa niin luvattiin. Ilmastointilaitetta ei voinut säätää, joten puhalsi erittäin kylmää, eikä voinut pitää koko ajan päällä. Seinät kuin paperia, äänet kuuluivat käytävästä ja viereisestä huoneesta hyvin, joten ei herkkäunisille. Hotellin altaalla aurinkotuolit hajoilivat käsiin, lähinnä huvittavaa, ei haitannut auringon ottoa. Hotellin ravintolassa henkilökunta ei puhunut englantia, ja muutenkin alueella heikko englannin kielen taito Ranta ja ravintolat lähellä, muut aktiviteetit (vesipuisto ja keskusta) kaukana. Sopii pariskunnille ja perheille auringonottolomaksi.

Turvallisen oloinen pieni hotelli.

Aamupala runsas ja monipuolinen, paljontuoreita hedelmiä. Lapset huomioitu. Jos jotain pääsi loppumaan, ystävällisesti pyytämällä sai lisää. Palvelualtis henkilökunta, mutta Englannin taito vain respassa. Savuttomat sisätilat. Plussaa: mahdollisuus vuokrata "vaatimaton" pyörä hotellilta. Siisti ympäristö, ei pakkomyyntiä yms. rannoilla/ kaduilla. Bussipysäkit hotellin vierellä -ja junayhteydet lähistöllä, edullinen taksa 1,45e siivu. Hieman opettelua ja seikkailun halua kokemattomalta vaatii;) Miinusta: dupatut TV-ohjelmat, mutta omalla tabletilla/-kännykällä voi kts. netistä, aulassa. Ilmastointilaitteet joutuu koville/ aiheuttaa hieman kosteutta, (loppuviikosta tiputti vettä parketille.) joten lähitulevaisuudessa korjaustarvetta hotellihuoneissa/ilmastointilaitteissa. Ei vielä homeen hajua.
