A group of us met at the hotel for lunch. We knew that this was not expensive (certainly not), and that the service was buffet style. But soon after the restaurant opened several dishes were down to sauce only. Pork slices were under cooked. Ice cream was too warm. A shame.

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...

We stayed at the Esmeralda Hotel for a week whilst walking in mountains behind the Costa Blanca.The hotel was good value for money, the room was large with a nice balcony. The food was a good buffet for breakfast and dinner.

We stayed here recently on a dance holiday, and as the original 4 star hotel was full, we were accommodated in the Esmeralda. Initially I was disappointed as the Esmeralda is a 3 star property but I've got to say I was pleasantly surprised.
