Just recently come back from a months stay at the Esmeralda in Calpe..There from middle of January till middle of February. The hotel is situated on the sea front which is a level walk around two bays. We had a lovely room and also a sitting room which was cleaned daily fresh towels every day and clean bed linen 3times weekly. Anything extra we needed eg extra pillows or blankets were promptly supplied. As we were there in winter months we were happy to have controllable heating in the rooms.. Although there isn't a kettle one was supplied on request at reception. The opening hours in the restaurant were very flexible and the staff were very helpful and friendly..The food however was a bit mediocre and not very warm there is however a microwave you can use.there was a good selection of hot and cold food and a good quality wine available. The entertainment was very Spanish but as Spanish guests were in the majority it was only to be expected..Saying that we all got on well and were made very welcome. Not many local bars and restaurants were open when we first arrived but more opened as the weeks went on. The local bus stop is outside the hotel so it was easy to get round and about and the hotel reception have timetables. Collapse

We booked this hotel via Jet2holidays having stayed in the Diamante in 2012. We recollected that although only a three star at the time of our stay in 2012 at that time it warranted a higher premium. We had travelled with Jet2holidays in 2012. What a complete let down this hotel was for the two nights we spent there. The room was not dated but dead and the food left a lot to be desired along with the decor in both departments. The hotel was full of Spanish pensioners and as a result all the entertainment was centred around their needs as was the food. The food was average and look warm as were the staff. Our accommodation consisted of two rooms, one just fitted a bed and the other had two settees and the TV which had no English channels if we had wished to watch it. Having arrived late afternoon we endoured the first night and then contacted the Jet2holidays office in nearby Benidorm who were excellent and without any hesitation arranged for a move the following day over to the Diamante on which I will report accordingly. We had to pay the equivalent of £4 a day for the move and in view of the 2 Euros for a safe and free at the Diamante it was an excellent move. On the morning of our move the breakfast just about summed up the running of the hotel when the restaurant at 0910 hours could not provide any eggs as they stated they had run out. We have never ever had cause to have a hotel change before but I am sorry to say that this choice of hotel was a big mistake. Collapse

Just arrived back from 11 days away over the festive period and thoroughly enjoyed it. Hotel - Built in 1991 and refurbished in 2006. Yes you can see the hotel is a little dated but the rooms were fine, the beds are hard and you will push to singles together to make a twin. The bathroom is fine and the shower was very powerful. We went with our young daughter so we had a two bedroom with bathroom/balcony set-up which was fine. The second bedroom comprises of 2 sofa beds TV channels are limited in English but you can change in the settings menu to Audio English so handy if you are hanging about the room Fyi, Key card entry to the room and fresh towels/room made up daily. Safe in the room chargeable at 2euros a day a I believe. Kettle and extra blankets are available if you request from the front desk and the maid will leave in the room at some point after your request. Food - We travelled all inclusive so all was available to us. Breakfast 8:00-10:30 and is buffet style with all the usual foods you would expect in a European buffet (Beans/Eggs/Cheeses/Cold Meats/Cereals/Yoghurts/Fruits etc) Lunch - 13:00-15:30 Again buffet style with various hot dishes (Pork/Chicken/Chips/Vegetables and of course cheeses/meats etc) Dinner - 19:30-22:30 Again, buffet style with plenty to choose from. Fyi - The Lunch/Dinner menus are posted daily outside the entrance to the restaurant for the day ahead so you can see after breakfast what these menus will be Bar - 11:00 to close - All alternative brand choices available and a few of the mainstream choices too (Gordons, Smirnoff) These are listed in the menu in terms of what's covered by All Inclusive if you travel this way and although the staff have limited English, they understand if you are requesting a particular item from these drinks lists so you wont go wrong NOTE - The bar/disco downstairs was only open for one evening (out of season) as the upstairs function suite which holds various dances etc each evening was closed for new year preparation. This bar isn't covered by the All inclusive which wasn't conveyed to me when I went to select a drink which made things a little awkward so worth noting. Facilities - Swimming pool opens in the morning then closes around mid day-ish I believe. Re-opens from 16:30 until evening time (Note - not sure if its a legal requirement or a hotel policy but swim caps must be worn in the pool by both male/female. You can purchase these for 2.50 Euros each so worth noting if you plan to use the pools. To the right hand side of the Bar entrance, there is a 'what's on' timetable which details various activities. We weren't made aware of this when we first arrived and only stumbled across it by accident so worth looking at as you may miss some of the activities depending on how long you plan to travel for. Also a library/quiet room off the 1st floor plenty of space/books both in English/Spanish etc if this is your thing. Parking - Available at 9 Euros a day and its on street parking. Not sure how you pay as the signage suggests you pay at a machine but couldn't see that any machines around. It may be you pay to the hotel and they issue you a card to place on your windscreen daily?? We planned to hire a car but this fell through so cant confirm the procedure but parking fee is definitely this amount. Location - Right next to the beach so great location. We stayed in the rooms facing on to the main street at the front of the hotel so we had a fantastic view. Looking around the rear of the hotel, there looks to be a planned development plot so I guess this view would not be so good?? Shops - Aldis - 10 min walk and Lidls - 15 Min walk. A couple of local supermarket chains less than 3 min walk so you wont be stuck. Pharmacy - 2 min walk from the hotel also. Sight seeing - The little tourist train departs from just outside the hotel at 10:00 each day and does several round trips right up through the old town. You can get off once and its a return to original destination type ticket so the driver will tear your ticket on return and you in theory will get back off where you got on from Calpe rock is fantastic climb/walk but a little daunting once you get beyond the tunnel through the rock for younger kids. Sticky mud makes it a little awkward under foot as it soon fills the grips on your shoes. Allow a 2/3 hour trip up and back. The tourist office at the foot of the climb has decent toilets so handy before you begin your walk. Tourist information centre is around the other side of the large pond set around the centre of Calpe in a small white building and the staff here are very informative so worth a visit as they create a 'What's on in Calpe' type sheet from week-to-week If I had one gripe about Calpe in general, it would be lack of Public toilets. We found one in the Central Shopping mall which isn't really a public toilet and one on the beach towards the old town but this was there for a beach event and you really wouldn't want to go sitting down in it. Overall we had a very enjoyable visit to Calpe, the hotel was adequate, the food was good, the staff were as helpful as they could be and the location was excellent. Would we return to this hotel, Yes :-) Note - Staff member by the name of Nodia was a really lovely woman and she got on so well with our daughter, she made us feel really welcome Collapse
