There were some good points to the hotel during our two week stay. Convenient location (although on a busy road), car parking was plentiful and free, our room was quiet so long as the outside bar was closed, the beds were comfortable, towels very good, and there was a good supply of hot water. The three lifts gave a good service, the other option is the set of stairs that are outside and uncovered, on the coldest side of the building with no ‘weather proofing’. The restaurant highlights were the fruit, and white bread that was excellent. All staff were all very pleasant and certainly tried to please. Not so good: There was no evidence of management staff at any time during our stay and supervision seemed minimal. The dining room was a free for all with the few staff just about managing to empty used tables and replace cutlery before the next guest arrived. Cleaning/hygiene standards were inadequate. The staff in the dining room in particular seemed to be overworked and undertrained/supervised, one or two spoke good English but they weren’t not on duty often. Despite this they all were very pleasant and as helpful as they could be. The food had very little variety, it was not well cooked, starters were ‘okayish’ but the content and salads had little variety, and the replenishment of all dishes was very spasmodic and slow. The ‘hot food’ was nearly always luke warm on the self-service areas and descriptions were very often missing on the meats, whereas ‘pasta’ was always highlighted although being perfectly obvious what it was! The ‘cooking station’ for the most part had one staff member who had to try and cope and seemed to specialise in either overcooking or undercooking anything on offer. The dining room itself was furnished in a minimalistic ‘functional’ fashion, there was zero atmosphere and no dress code. The nights that the hotel appeared full, it was total chaos trying to select food. The hotel has a strong bias towards large groups of cyclists/athletes but has totally failed to account or cater for the implications this has on those wishing to enjoy their holiday time. Our deal included wine and water with the meal for which, initially, we were given a token and waiters brought the wine and water. After about 6 days it became a ‘free for all’ and wine and water dispensers were introduced, so anybody could just help themselves. Whichever system they used, the red wine was so cold it couldn’t be tasted. The ‘free for all’ also meant wine was selected for breakfast, which we don’t think was included in anybody’s package. The sunbeds were dirty and seemed to come out of the 1970’s era, white plastic, many cracked, no adjustable back support, no cushion and therefore very hard. There were 2 with back adjustment, these we were told by the maintenance man had been appropriated from next door – new sunbeds were said to be ‘on order’! Other than that there were chairs and some tables but no individual umbrellas. Eventually large umbrellas were erected around the bar area which did give some shade but not for those around the pool. The corridor to our room was north/east facing, freezing cold and draughty, as was the lift lobby on our floor. The bar area by the restaurant was also cold, with the nearby entertainment area being chilly, the reception area on the ground floor was the only warm public space in the building. Room & hotel information was non-existent. There was nothing in our room about how to work the safe, any hotel/room services information, where to change money (we found there is no money exchange in the hotel nor at any local banks, closest was Albir or Benidorm), no advice on the local area, transport, walks or facilities – reception were very good but it’s always helpful to have something in the room rather than having to join a queue each time you need information. There were local buses, trams, walks – but no information about anything. Overall, our experience was very much more 3 star than 4 star, and we couldn’t really recommend the hotel to anybody.

I booked this one week before we arrived at the beautiful Cap Negret hotel. Very welcoming staff which remained so throughout our stay. Nothing too much trouble for any of them. Our room was spotless, bed very comfortable and we think we had the best room in the hotel as we overlooked the pool, the sea and the mountains. ( room 119 ) The food was very good especially if you're a big meat eater. Plenty of choice, differing each night especially. Sometimes hot food was warm only but certainly not inedible. The nightly entertainment had something for everyone. We were in walking distance of Altea and it's beautiful promenade with cafe bars & restaurants. We used the local bus and tram to visit Benidorm, Calle and Denia. Stunning views for a very small fare. The weather was very kind to us; wall to wall blue skies every day with temperatures up to 24C! All in all a fabulous stay in a great hotel which I would highly recommend Collapse

The Superior room was average and not very clean - someone else's hair, nails etc. in the wardrobe and under the bed. We had to ask the cleaner to sweep under the bed as it was so bad. The bath was definitely not cleaned once in the time we were there. Shower gel etc. replenished randomly. The restaurant was something else. On our first night there was very little food available so on the second night we went down earlier to find a huge queue and total mayhem. The restaurant was about one third full of cyclists who obviously have big appetites hence the lack of food - the hotel should have known this! It did improve over the period we were there. The restaurant is more like a canteen or school dinner hall - it was not unusual to have to make up your own table, get your cutlery etc and just forget about a tablecloth. However, I have to say that the staff in the restaurant deserve a great deal of credit for their ability to keep a smile on their face and remain courteous and professional in very difficult circumstances. Food stations are too small and crowded. The grill food was quite often undercooked, rare, bloody pork is a complete no no. We were fortunate to be there at the same time as a group of young athletes from Norway who were a credit to their club/country - very polite, courteous and friendly. They dressed in club attire at all times with appropriate knee length shorts - unlike some of the other older groups who dressed in lycra and short, shorts. This was not appropriate when the dress code for other 'holiday makers' was long trousers etc. We would not return to this hotel and we would not have gone there if we had known about the huge groups of athletes etc. However, the location is excellent. The entertainment was very good. Altea is beautiful. I just don't think this hotel management team has thought through the implications of mixing large groups of athletes with people who are there for a precious one/two week break. Collapse

I really enjoyed our week's stay here.First of all - the staff were all wonderful - friendly, helpful, chatty. Room was spacious with wifi accessible on the top floor and a comfortable bed. I loved sleeping with the door onto the balcony open and listening to the sound of the sea. The food was great. We had the buffet breakfast and evening meal every day. Lots of choice for both meals and despite the huge size of the dining room and the large number of people passing through, food trays were constantly topped up and there was minimal waiting time for food. Breakfast - great choice of porridge, cereals, meats, eggs, croissants, fried foods, fruit. Dinner - always lots of fresh salad and a choice of meats and fish with fruit or sticky desserts to finish. It is a 20 minute walk into Altea (if you go the pretty way) and a 3 minute walk to the tram stop where the hourly, inexpesive, tram service will take you up and down the coast. A local walking map gives you some good routes down the coast or into the hilly area close by. Collapse
