Tolles Hotel für einen erholsamen Urlaub

Pros: Sehr gefallen hat uns der beheizbare Pool, bequeme Sonnenliegen und das tolle Frühstück. Gerne haben wir Tischtennisplatte und Fitnessraum genutzt.
Location: Das Hotel liegt etwas außerhalb von Altea. Da wir ein Auto gemietet hatten, konnten wir vom Hotel aus schöne Ausflüge in der Umgebung machen.
Wir - Familie, 3 Personen, waren in der Woche vor Ostern da und hatten die ganze Zeit über traumhaftes Wetter.

Es ist unmöglich im Swimmingpool zu baden, denn das Wasser ist kalt. Es gibt keinen Strand. Der beheizte Pool vom Spa Bereich ist nur gegen Aufpreis verfügbar und man soll noch eine Badekappe tragen. Halbpension war enttäuschend. Das Hotel hat für mich keine 5 Sterne verdient.

Erinomainen palvelu! Siisti!

Sijainti hiukan syrjässä. Kävelymatka kaupunkiin ja palveluihin n. 30 min.
