NO AIR-CONDITIONING IN JULY. The staff at the reception was completely unresponsive, I had to shout at them to get a room with air-conditioning. In July. The hotel looks like it has known better times: the minibars are empty and the planters on the balcony have the remains of dead plants and dirt. STAY AWAY!!!

Stayed here on business this week and booked as it was close to where I needed to be. Whilst it was better than my last stay, where I swore I wouldn't stay again, this hotel just isn't a four-star property or value for money. The service is very slow and unfriendly. The rooms are OK in size but quite basic, the TV was fuzzy for my entire stay. Requests to correct were met with indifference. The bar staff were most unimpressed when I asked to pay for drinks with credit card. They let their feelings about this most clear. I'm desperately trying to find a good 4/5 star in Calpe for future stays.

Would definitely return to this hotel. Couldn't find fault with anything. Food was top class , catered for all ages and nationalities. Very near lovely beach shops .entertainment for kiddies if needed too .

We stayed at this lovely hotel from 19-24 June. Our room 1511 was on the top floor with lovely views of the swimming pool and the sea. Large room with extra large comfortable bed. Great bathroom with good supply of toiletries. Lovely big balcony too. I was worried about the food as there were several reviews saying that the good was tepid. The good during our stay was piping hot. Good choice each evening of 3 hot prepared dishes and a fish and meat dish each night cooked fresh on the griddle. Good selection of starters and puddings too!! Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. The pool was very clean and tidy. The spa and gym facilities were good. A good range of entertainment with something different each night. The only thing I would say is that drinks at the bar were very expensive. €11 for a large beer and a gin and tonic. Lovely stay and a special mention to Igor who was the most helpful friendly member of staff on reception.

We stayed at this hotel having booked it from the UK. We were very disappointed that the booking had been made as all inclusive but when we got there were told it was room only. As a result we had to pay for everything and it was costly! We were on the first floor so could not get a really nice view. The show of the hotel looks unusual and this is attractive, it is to mimic the icon of the town, the Ifach rock i think and so we thought we would get a good view. The hotel had entertainment in the wvning which was rubbish. Not very good at all. There was nothing for our boys to do ages 10 and 11 so I would not recommend it for kids at all. The room had ants the first day but after being cleaned and sprayed these were no longer a problem. Proximity to the beach is fab, fist a 3-4 minute walk. Not even sure why I'm giving it 3 it's maybe because I'm being generous and the location.

i am amazed at the complaint !!t hotel with excellent food !lamb shanks, liver and onion to name two !! loads of fruit, pasta and salad ! Those who moan must eat extremely well at home or just enjoy being difficult!, the Saga rep Suzanne was the best one I have encountered after many years of travelling with Saga 1 I will definitely return !! all the staff were friendly and helped make it a very enjoyable holiday

Our third visit and positives are still the excellent location, short walk to beachfront, not far to harbour and if you are reasonably active walkable to town. Friendly staff. The hotel rooms are either overlooking the salt lake and the mountains with sun in the afternoon or on the other side the Bay and the Penon with sun in the morning. We prefer the former although the pool and outside bar area are on this side and even though we were on the top floor (15) we were bothered on a couple of evenings until 1 am by loud behaviour from some guests. The hotel will try and accommodate your wishes as to room location if you put in a request. We spent one week in room 1505 before a leak developed in the ceiling (no rain so not sure what it was). While we were out we were allocated room 1507 so had to move everything. Fortunately we are capable of doing this ourselves, although it would have been nice to have been offered assistance. 1505 had balcony door issues. The glass freely moves in the frame and the frames rattle in the wind. Both sides open but only one has a handle. Wifi could only be obtained if you stood by the room door. The wardrobe doors were sticking. 1507 also had balcony door issues and I resorted to squashing paper in various places which helped. Smaller, older TV but wifi good in this room. No seal on the shower screen so you had to make sure to angle the head towards the wall. Ant invasion which I dealt with using mosquito repellant. To cap it all, on departure morning we had no water to wash with or use the toilet. Apparently this affected several floors. While we were there they were putting new signage up in the corridors and I couldn't help thinking the money would be better spent on sorting out the balcony doors as we also had a problem on a previous visit on the 13th floor. I am not a fan of the changes they have made to the bar area. Too clinical, reminded me of a hospital canteen. We were travelling with Saga and made a lifestyle choice not to go all inclusive. However, this meant that we were not provided with water on the table at dinner. I thought Spanish tap water could be trusted now but, unlike in England where even a dog is offered a bowl of water, this doesn't appear to be the case and you are charged 2.50 Euros. Suggest you buy from the supermarket at a fifth of the price and fill up before you go. Food was adequate and we always found something to eat but sometimes the hot selections were bland and sometimes tepid. There are many return guests, particularly with Saga, so the hotel has an ambiance that is attracting them but for me I will go elsewhere in the future.

We have just returned from a two week stay at the Hotel SH IFach in Calpe. The first week of our stay was as part of Saga Walking Holiday. We stayed for a second week to explore the area. We were very pleasantly surprised by this hotel and especially by the tasty meals. We were on an All Inclusive package which allowed us to benefit from lunch, dinner, reasonable red, white or rose wine at meals times and a good range of drinks in the bar. Although we only ate lunch in the hotel on three occasions, we felt that the deal still represented good value. A good range of dishes was offered at meal times including salads, vegetables and a selection of pasta, rich, fish and meat dishes. Usually both a meat and fish dish were cooked to order and these were real favourites. We had a comfortable room on the 13th floor. This gave us a superb view but did mean that we were dependant on the lift which could be frustrating at busy times. Wi fi was good and both it and a room safe were free. The hotel is light and bright and kept beautifully clean. The staff are friendly and efficient and seemed keen to make our stay enjoyable. We thoroughly enjoyed our walking week which took us to some beautiful areas, was well led and was a chance to mix with a great group of people. We hadn't stayed in Calpe before and are unlikely to return. The resort appears to have been on a building frenzy with the most hideous and extremely tall hotels and apartment blocks springing up everywhere. We felt that all charm had been lost. Transport was also a difficulty. Although a train runs through to Alicante and all stops between, the station is well outside the tourist area and the local buses to the station are not timed to coincide with the trains. Some simple adjustment could make so much difference. Taxi ranks are not plentiful and taxis are not cheap. As the train service to Denia is being upgraded at present, there is a substitute bus which operates from the station and provides an adequate service. If you like this resort or are not likely to bothered by the hideous buildings, I would recommend this hotel

Update on the food. We found everything apart from the sautéed vegetables is piping hot. Great choice from the buffet and freshly cooked fish and meat dishes cooked to order at lunch and dinner. Nice hotel with quiet spacious rooms and private balconies with afternoon/ evening sun for those rooms overlooking the pool and morning sun on the other side. We booked the Saga walking holiday which was great. Great Saga guides and friendly and approachable Saga rep in the hotel.
