Begin your visit to Alicante with an incredible view over the city. High above the town, sitting on top of Benacantil Hill, is the Castillo de Santa Bárbara. You can reach the summit on foot, by car or by lift and enjoy the views from the walls.
Under the fortress stretch the streets of the Old City. The Casco Antiquo is an area full of art museums and historic buildings. The Concatedral de San Nicolás de Bari is considered one of the finest examples of Spanish Baroque architecture, while the Basilica de Santa María is the oldest church in the city, and it is still used today. Visit the administrative heart of Alicante, Alicante Town Hall and admire the rich interiors that were once commonplace in the region.
To enjoy the beaches of Alicante you don’t have to go far. Follow the mosaic tiles of the Esplanada de Espana to reach the Playa del Postiguet, at the foot of the Benacantil. Or take the tram to the vast bay of the Playa de San Juan for a day of sailing, volleyball and windsurfing.
Taste fresh food and join the locals at the Mercado Central. Visit the Port of Alicante, where the restaurants are famous for their seafood dishes. Make sure you try the paella and arroz negro, a rice dish that is made with black squid ink.
Alicante is a compact city and most attractions are within walking distance of the historic centre, while an ever-growing network of trams and buses will take you to the more distant destinations. Even the depths of winter the Mediterranean climate provides mild temperatures and it rarely rains.
The port is a popular gateway to the city and many visitors arrive by ferry or cruise ship. The nearest international airport is just 20 minutes away by bus, and there are regular high speed train connections from Barcelona and Madrid.
Check in was very quick and easy,underground parking very good,room was very large and airy also clean comfortable,the only downside was no beverage tray,as we were there for only one night it wasn't to much of a problem,but as a four star hotel I would have expected this to be provided... but this ...
Absolutely beautiful , 2 mins walk to the beach , amazing hotel our only fault if we could find one was that the mini fridge in the room was not very good x but we will Definately be back without a doubt !!
Great location! Beautiful motel. Bathroom/shower needed some attention but not enough to care about and the air conditioner didn’t seem to cool as much as we wanted. The view from our room was perfect for the fireworks and we were right on the beach.
This was the most relaxed,quiet and chilled place to stay. Wonderful atmosphere everyone so friendly.
We arrived mid morning and our room was ready.The reception staff were friendly and made us feel extremely welcome.Our room for 3 adults waslovely and clean and not too small. Bathroom was spotless and all in working order.
