Reviews of our holiday lettings in Alicante

The apartment is generally good for a couple and a child. I do not recommend it for 3 adults. The location is fine, in a quiet area, but 400m to the beach ... I do not believe it. Apart from that to go to the beach or a detour, or part of the way is by a path full of stones. The mattress on the bed should be changed, and the sheets and towels should be washed with another detergent, as they smelled bad and we had to wash them in the washing machine before using them.Read more
The house has all the comforts for the family, located on the first floor overlooking the pool, we found all the clean linen, the house was clean and everything is located in more than a few meters from the sea.Read more
The apartment has a good standard. A little problem with fuses that went! No bedding for beds so it's a big minus, it was only a thin move. And it became cold and sleep in. Then the quilts must be in place !!Read more

Villas, apartments and holiday rentals in Alicante
Alicante is a port city and the capital of the Costa Blanca, located in the south east, in Alicante Province. As one of the most popular resorts in Spain, it's famous for its nearby beaches, fiestas and cosmopolitan atmosphere; a perfect summer holiday destination for families, singles and couples alike, with plenty to see and do. The city lies at the foot of Santa Barbara Castle, an icon of Alicante, perched on Benacantil mountain next to the harbour. The region is steeped in Phoenician, Greek and Arab history, with traditional Spanish squares dotted all around the region. The old walled town is where you'll find most of the restaurants and nightlife, with atmospheric tapas bars and restaurants offering local and international dishes. Beachgoers are spoiled for choice when it comes to the Costa Blanca, but the main beach Postiguet is where most come to unwind and enjoy the calm waters, water sports and castle views.
For culture vultures, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Plaza de Santa Maria is a must-see, housing 20th century works of famous Spanish artists such as Picasso, Miro and Dali. The Grava Museum of Fine Arts in Calla Niagra is also not to be missed, exhibiting sculptures and paintings from local Valencian artists. The palm-lined marina is bustling whatever the time of day, so whether you want an evening stroll along the seafront or dinner with a view, it's the perfect place for watching the world go by as the yachts and fishing boasts gently bob up and down.
