I am stayin as we speak now for 2 days(room 138) with a view over the swimmingpool and I cant say anyting bad about this Hotel( the outdoor place is perfect, The Staff is so kind and welcoming, spcecially the Staff at the bar/ restraurant, they just welcome you as a family, the room is big and clean, the only thing it might be an little frigde( if you are gonna stay for a week or so, but that did not affect my staying for theese 2 days, the locations is 100 procent brilliant, 10 min walk to the beach and Shops everywhere, I dont understand the complains here on the Tripadvisor because this is so good Hotel, I am giving them Full house and coming back for longer time🤗🤗🤗

Never stayed at a Holiday Inn that needs upgrades more than this. Great location not far from the beach but when we asked at the desk, was told it's 25 minutes away by bus ( 0 minute walk). They put us in a room over the entrance so all night long we heard the door open and close Pool area was loud with no waiters working the area

This is my second visit to this Hotel. And i cannot fault a thing. Got uogeaded on arrival to the best room i could wish for. Living room huge bedroom queen size bed and a balcony as big as my bedroom.Amazing. Pool fab .. so clean. All staff really welcoming and helpful. Special shout out to Domingo in the Bar .. looked after us great.. muchas gracias .. and Marianna too.. Place located in a lovely area san juan. Tge cleanest beach and sea ive seen and most gorgeous restaurant where you can enjoy typical spanish food. Again learn some spanish. Not much english speaking .. but if you speak the lingo its perfect. Best restaurant by far Al Oleo .. amazing food and best service. We will be returning x

We needed a hotel that offered free parking and was reasonably priced and this hotel fitted the bill. It's classed as a 4 star hotel as there are business facilities, a restaurant and a decent pool but there was no fridge or tea/coffee making facilities so bring your own kettle! Lovely neighbourhood and nice and quiet with an easy stroll to the beach where there are bars and restaurants and a McDonalds. The rooms are very large and spacious and the large bath was most welcome. Sachets of shower gel and shampoo are provided plus extra attached to the wall. The staff are friendly and helpful and speak good english. If you have forgotten anything such as a toothbrush they will provide one for free. The pool is nice and the enormous bed was very very comfortable Felt very safe and we left the car after we left in the street after we had checked out and caught a bus into the city - cost 1.45 each way which we felt was very reasonable. Will definitely stay here again!

The hotel looks nice from the outside but it definitely wasn't when we walked in. Definitely not a 4*. The reception is basic. The carpets old, the walls grabby, the rooms although clean, were very old and basic. Wallpaper peeling off the walls, ceiling fracked and stained, no mini fridge, no safe and old furniture. The bathroom had broken tiles and grout, the chrome taps were old and not longer shiny , the shower head was spraying water in all direction, the soap dispenser on wall was odd. We were there for a night only while driving somewhere else along the coast, the night staff were non interested either. The room was in a basement and I had to listen during the whole night the air condition engines outside the back of the hotel every 5 minutes for about 10 seconds, the Guest next room constantly coughing. It was an horrible experience. It was like an hostel experience. If you are staying there ..... be aware that your expectations of a 4* will not be met. Thanks.

Lovely pool area lots of sun beds, although towels were put out and then left for hours. No outdoor pool bar while we were there. Internet was hit and miss. Breakfast was very good and lots of choice, hot and cold. Hotel was very clean and comfy beds. Supermarket close by and loads of eateries, so we did not eat here at night. 10 min walk to a fab beach very clean. Tram stop close to hotel too. We all enjoyed our 3 night stay and would come back again.

Upon arriving at the hotel we were told that there were no working lifts and weren’t offered any help from staff. The corridor leading to our room was unlit and we were made to feel like we’d been shoved in an empty part of the hotel. The room itself was spacious and nicely decorated, with plenty of storage. Much to our surprise the water ran yellow when we turned on the taps. We told reception, they were previously aware of the situation but failed to tell us about before our arrival. They didn’t offer us another room to shower after a long day of traveling. But simply showed us to a sink downstairs where we could brush our teeth. The situation the following day was much better, despite this I feel like we shouldn’t have had to pay for a room that wasn’t up to the expected standard. The rest of the stay was enjoyable, with a nice pool located conveniently close to the beach.

Stayed here for few nights as part of our adventures around the Costa Blanca. This hotel is franchised and under licence by the IHG Group. As an elite Platinum Member of this loyalty programme I assumed my loyalty would be appreciated, sadly this was not the case. No recognition of Status, No complimentary upgrade, No warm welcoming, No free drink or snack, No incentives...nothing just a box standard room. But always a few Positives: A lovely quiet outside pool area, decent size buffet breakfast. Half Decent internet connection. Yes, the hotel has a shoddy appearance and is in desperate need of an refurbishment but putting this aside, it's clean, its quiet and you get a decent nights sleep. It's a few minutes walk away for the tram direct to benidorm or alicante centre so that's a plus, their is a massive supermarket 10 minutes walk away so that's another plus. Would I stay here again, Yes I would as it's clean and the facilities around here are good, shame that my recognition at check-in was overlooked but apart from that an average decent hotel. So have noticed many negative reviews about this hotel relating to it's appearance and the old fashioned furniture, but don't be out off as it's clean, the room rates are competitive and the housekeeping do a great job and can only clean the room and furniture as best they can, The hotel needs refurbishing but this is nothing to do with how clean it is as I can vouch it's scrupulously clean. Another thing I must add is that it's also 10 minutes walk away to the beach front which is lovely and quiet and plenty of eateries including good old McDonald's.

Booked in with my daughter on the 20th . Arrived late at night and the 2 reception ladies miserable. The room was better than other reviews however massive dent on the bath and very rusty. If you caught yourself on this you would need antibiotics and a tetanus jab . The breakfast for the hot food chopped up hot dog sausages and cold bacon . For a 4 star I find this shocking . Would be nice if your maids would knock on before they actualy walked in . The last morning my taxi was collecting us at 8am . The breakfast was running ten mins late then she tried charging us for breakfast when I had already paid in advance . Had less than 15 mins to eat breakfast. The only positive about this hotel is the location. Would I stay again? Absolutely not !!

Although this hotel is in a great location it is now showing it's age. Breakfast was fine and staff were friendly enough but this is NOT a 4 star hotel any more. We stayed last year and came back again this year in the hope that some improvements had been made but no, it was worse. Only one socket in the room and no tea/coffee making facilities. Sorry guys but we will be looking elsewhere from now on.
