I was hoping I would be able to leave a very positive review here but I am not. We booked the family room for 4 nights and chose this hotel over an apartment because it was 5-star, and after staying in an apartment in Barcelona we really wanted a 5-star experience. Unfortunately that was not the case. I would not recommend staying at this property the end of March through the beginning of May or Sept/Oct. We found out the hard way! It really ruined most of our time in Alicante because we were so tired. The hotel has no air conditioning March - May or in the fall. They only have heat and wait to put air on after they don't need any heat! We stayed over Sunday evening (the first night) and was up all night. The room(s) were SO warm. The lobby was fine, but once you reached the 2nd floor it was so warm. We could not open the windows because it was holy week and too noisy, but you really couldn't sleep with them open anyways with all the street noise. On Monday I went to the front desk and told them it was so hot, we were up all night and demanded fans. Came back Monday night and there was nothing. Again, we were ALL up ALL night - 2 kids as well. On Tuesday I went to the desk AGAIN and said we needed fans and we then learned because it's an old building they cannot operate a/c and heat at the same time. How can this be a 5 star with that?? I would never have chosen a hotel that did not have air conditioning. The rooms had to be 80 degrees. Again I had to tell them we were exhausted. 2 nights with no sleep. It ruined our day touring time. On Tuesday I demanded the fans. We came back at night and there was a fan in each room. The fan in the kids room was old & rusty and really did not help. The fan in our room was better, but it was still so hard to sleep with a major fan blowing on you.
I've never written a negative review but felt this needed it. This was not worth $1200.00 The hotel should have credited our entire stay, it was miserable. If management had left the lobby they would have known when walking down the hallway on the 2nd floor the heat rose about 20 degrees.
