Location is great, hotel ok

Just returned after a week at the hotel. The positives : Nice size rooms cleaned daily. Comfy beds, staff friendly and very hard working ...

Location fantastic. Pool was great, lots of beds available . Bar prices were very reasonable , cheaper than most bars in area. Negatives : rooms very dated , hotel a bit boring, entertainment really poor , Boring and geared to older people. Food, well this was the worst part of the holiday for us . Yes it was geared towards the Spanish but that wasn’t the problem , the problem was the quality of it . Very bland , repetitive and poor quality. Call us fussy but we don’t eat runner beans,Peas or rice for breakfast! The deserts were awful and it was all very samey . We are British but didn’t want British food as some previous reviewers have suggested, we just would have liked tastier food . Trust me my hub will eat anything but even he struggled here. We enjoyed our holiday but probably would not stay here again , or Calpe as there wasn’t enough to do .

Review by doreenwright1 Nottinghamshire, United Kingdom

Just feel the rooms need updating, but they are very spacious and comfortable. Also a bonus is the storage most we have ever had. Also liked the sofa in the room a nice touch.Always had plenty of hot water.

not great

Review by zaneta84848 Wakefield, United Kingdom

Hotel for old Spanish people. Do not travel there if you don't know Spanish or looking for young family holidays. Nothing to do with kids - no playground, poor entertainment, internal pool not suitable for kids...

My son had birthdays there - no possibility to order cake (we get one from shop) All Inclusive 11am-11pm only - we arrived after 11 pm and went to bed hungry, left hotel just before 8 am they don't do early breakfast Fire alarm in the middle of night - no explanation, no apologies. Staff always 'don't know' or 'is impossible'.

Nice hotel

Review by L20000 London, United Kingdom

Stayed here recently and I really liked the hotel. Check-in was quick and easy and staff were friendly throughout. The room was clean & comfortable although a little dated unfortunately...

The furniture needs updating as it looked quite tired and old. WiFi worked well within the room and I could stream Netflix without problems. The room was cleaned thoroughly every day with fresh towels and toiletries provided. The hotel is indeed spotless throughout, the cleaners do a great job.

(I just wanted to note that I was reading previous reviews regarding there being no English speaking TV channels. There now seems to be an addition of the BBC channels on the TV.)

The breakfast buffet was fine, plenty of choice and enough for everyone. Staff were friendly in the restaurant. I didn't eat here of an evening so cannot comment on the evening meal choices or service.

There is a pool area, it's not big compared to other hotels but sufficient on non-busy days.

The location is what makes the hotel, right next to a lovely beach and a small seafront area of shops, restaurants and bars.

Parking was OK, did have to drive around a couple times to find a suitable spot but never had any major troubles with parking the car nearby to the hotel.

I have read in previous reviews that this hotel is more for Spanish guests, I can understand why they wrote that but I did notice entertainment and daytime activities in English too. Nonetheless, a 'hola' and a 'gracias' can go a long way! :)

I'll definitely return at some point.
