Holiday Inn Alicante-Playa De San Juan

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The hotel is supposed to be a five star hotel. It is definitely not! Worn down and shabby, the breakfast is boring and the staff is completely clueless. Asked them to restart the router and they had NO clue!

We appreciate that this hotel is moving to a different chain of hotels in early 2018 but felt that the attitude of the staff and the overall appearance of the hotel was lacking. We have visited this hotel once a year for the last 4 years.

I recommend you this hotel because I saw every day the staff happy,doing his job with pleasure.If you’re speaking English language it’s easy to receive best information from the reception and from the restaurant.nice and clean Hotel,well done to all the staff,thank you.

Hotel was 15 minute bus trip for the city..bus stops outside. Hotel itself was typical chain decor..rooms a little fridge in room..expensive restaurant...wouldnt recommend for any longer than 3 or so days

Me and naldo, caz and Nic booked a last minute beach break to San Juan playa and stayed at the Holiday inn. I would like to say a big thank you to Maria jòse in the hotel bar, great service, also a big thank you to the cleaning staff , our rooms were cleaned to perfection, however, I would not return , the hotel was tired, lacked charm, expensive but average breakfast buffet. If you do stay in this hotel don't book or take a room between 118 & around 129/30 these rooms overlook the service area, deliveries, refuse collection ect, on the other hand the terrace closes at 22.00 due to the fact that the rooms overlooking the pool bar area don't want any noisy guests disturbing them, understandably so, but in Spain most people are still eating dinner at this time, so slight conflict of interests, surely all hotel guests are important and need consideration. On the plus side again, great location and the most amazing beach at San Juan

We stayed here for 9 night and never had a problem with anything.. We arrived at 12 at night and the receptionist was happy enough when booking us in.. Room as clean enough, we did ask for a double but we were expecting 2 singles pushed together.. Seems to b a standard thing now a days.. Towels changed daily.. Bed re made, bin emptyed everyday.. Cleaners always spoke on the passing.. Drinks fairly priced in bar, considering how much they pour you.. I was happy enough. We ate dinner 1 nite in hotel, fairly enjoyed it.. Also had lunch 1 day too.that was also great. Pool area is fine.. Not to busy and always a sun bed to be found.. Rooms are a bit dated, could do with a lick of paint and also carpets on corridor had a few stains. But so what, your not there to admire the walls or floors, your there to relax and enjoy your holiday. I agree with others tho.. No fridge in room!!who likes warm bottled water and also no coffee making facilities in room.. But again this seems standard in hotels abroad.get over it . I certainly wouldn't read into all the bad reviews this place gets.. Beach is a 10 mins walk down the hill and tram services are another 10 min walk away then it's 20 mins in to alicante itself ...this hotel is in a good location. I'd definitely go back..

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!
