Booked a free night with Priority club points – on arrival told that our booking had been cancelled – unknown to us and no knowledge from them who cancelled it. However Noelina quickly connected us to the priority points hotline and they sorted it out swiftly without fuss. The room was spacious for the 3 of us but like others...

Good grief! We left the airport in our hire car, thank goodness it was A. Full of fuel and B. v economical! What should have been a twenty minute journey took nearly an hour. The map provided on the Internet by the hotel must have been designed by someone who should have paid attention during their geography lessons. Apart from...

Comfortable, nice stay, friendly staff. The hotel needs minor maintenance that would make a world of difference... old paint, wore out sofas, humidity stains, etc... although we had a few issues they were all taken care of by front desk. Ok breakfast for the price.

We stayed here for one night in September en route to our holiday home and planned to explore Alicante for a couple of days. It had a large free car park which was very handy for us, but the location was far outside of the main attractions of Alicante, our fault for not doing our homework properly, but tapas and...

I have read the reviews and realise that a lot of the harsh reviews were made in busy times, to me this is a business man type hotel just like any holiday inn around the world, its not really a resort hotel just because it's got a swimming pool, my thoughts are it is not geared up for that type...

The location for the hotel was great; tucked away in a quiet, peaceful area and just a few minutes from a lovely beach. The only issue we had was finding places to eat that were open as our visit was at the end of the season and the bulk of the beach restaurants were closed. As the other reviews have...

First of all, you have to actually find it. This hotel is incredibly difficult to find, and Google map is not entirely accurate. The roads are "one way" in this area and they're are not signposted - (rare ones that are, normally have the sign hidden under tree branches and foliage!) This also meant that when we ventured out, we...
