10 Top-Rated Hotels in Costa Blanca, Province of Alicante, Valencian Country

August 7, 2022 Russell Mellin

Costa Blanca is the name given to Alicante's coastline in Spain, which stretches over 200 kilometers. It is an incredibly popular holiday destination for tourists, because of the marvelous weather and beaches. Costa Blanca is family friendly, thanks to the huge range of activities available there from beaches and golf to museums and parks. There are the beaches, such as Los Náufragos in Torrevieja with its volleyball nets, golden sands and Blue Flag status, or smaller beaches like Serragrosa with its crystal waters, ideal for swimmers. But there are also golf courses (particularly the Villaitana club de golf near Benidorm) and watersports facilities and cultural sites like museums and galleries, such as the La Asegurada Municipal Museum in Alicante which has extensive collections of Spanish art. You will need a couple of weeks on the Costa Blanca just to scratch the surface of its entertainment potential.

This is our 4th return to Albir Gardens, and it didn't disappoint. We have just returned after 2 glorious weeks. We stayed in the premium room this time which I wouldn't do again if im.honest. The room was amazing, so big, however I just missed having a separate bedroom, not enough storage (draw space). Food was great, plenty to choose from, and the pool food bar was brilliant, also open until 12pm. Bar staff as always a amazing especially the lovely Gaspar, they are always very polite and smiling, even when the pressure was on, as it got really busy at times. The maids work so hard, everyday we were given clean towels and bedding. Thanks again Albir Gardens for a great holiday. Love The Shinglers room D110.

We arrived for a 5 night stay and stayed in room 2010 Robin Hood themed room poolside. Very adequate space and very clean with two bathrooms bunk beds, and a queen bed, a sofa bed and kitchen area with own private gardens lounge area. Little space for storage in bathroom and bedroom but space under the beds for luggage cases. Cleaners are on site everyday and do a good job. No phone in the room which caused a slight issue with the fire alarm waking us up but it was quickly resolved. The staff at this hotel work extremely hard to keep the place clean and running. There could be more choices of snacks around the pool side as there was only crisps and nachos. The queue got a little annoying to get drinks. We took the all inclusive premium package and it was more than enough choices but got abit repetitive after day 3. Always enough tables available, and again the staff were always on hand to be helpful. This is a very large hotel with about 3 pools. Floats are allowed in one area and the life guards were pretty relaxed but doing their jobs to keep everyone safe. Taxi into Benidorm old town was only ten mins away and definitely worth the visit. The WiFi wasn't great and looked as though the plug was pulled when too many ppl were trying to use it. The Waterpark slides are a great addition and plenty of space for everyone. Fun for all ages. Overall definitely would visit again. Lovely hotel and we all got what we wanted which was fun sun smiles.

Honest review

Reviewed By lou20162013

We stayed here on a last minute 9 day break. We go to benidorm every year and have stayed at many hotels, our hotel of choice is the Rosamar but due to it being closed for a refurb we tried this hotel. First the hotel is clean and child friendly. The splash park is very good as is the other pool. The day kids club facilities are good which is a soft play area and various activities taking place throughout the day with very nice staff. The AI choice of drinks which are branded are very good. The nighttime entertainment is hit and miss, about three good shows 2 ok shows and the rest were pretty boring. The kids entertainment on a night is the worst we have seen and is aimed more for the Spanish and is very poor, even our kids who love doing everything didn’t want to participate in any of it. The food is ok not the worst but certainly not the best and after 4 days I couldn’t face anymore of it. The rooms are ok, they are cleaned everyday but we didn’t realise there wasn’t a balcony which didn’t work for us as we like sitting out on a balcony. All the staff were very friendly and happy to help. The location is at the end of the Levante beach and is located up a hill which is something to be mindful of if you have young children or mobility issues. Would I stay here again, nope because of the reasons I have stated but again not the worst I’ve stayed in but certainly not the best. PS if you do get fed up of the food what we found out on the last night was you can order fresh pizzas from reception or the app (in boxes) to be cooked and collected from the speciality Italian restaurant on a night which was pretty good for no extra cost.

Beautiful Hotel

Reviewed By Susan L

Just stayed for 10 nights at this beautiful hotel. This is our second time here. Last time we stayed B&B but this time went half board & was not disappointed. The food is very good & so much choice. The only negative is that it was very busy especially at breakfast & food was not replenished. We also waited 20 minutes one evening to get a drink. We paid extra once again for a sea view room, well worth it. We had room 921, it was lovely with a large balcony & amazing views. The balcony had 2 sun loungers on & we got the sun all day. The hotel is very busy with guests checking in & out all the time. Drinks are very reasonable. The hotel is kept spotlessly clean. We had clean fluffy towels every day & the bed linen was changed every other day. We also had bath robes & slippers & lots of little extras in the room. Shower was excellent. There is a fridge with water replenished daily. Calpe has a beautiful very clean beach & a lovely promenade leading to the harbour. The Parc Natural is well worth a visit where the rock is & the old town is lovely & very quaint. I would definitely recommend this hotel & being adults only was a bonus.

A group of 3 adults 1 child , we had a very relaxing 1 week break. Reception not that helpful , we had experienced an item of clothing go missing from the room and was passed from pillar to post , although they did rectify this on the final day with a gesture of good will. Facilities are great , and hotel is very clean. Although I feel that the gym should be included and not €6 for 2 hours use! The food option was brilliant , a great variety and well stocked . Bar staff brilliant , especially Alvaro stood out to us , so friendly and attentive to our son, always made sure we had everything we need. Great service, and bar staff always happy and chatty. This was the 2nd visit and will be back.

Amazing hotel for families and couples

Reviewed By R4639UKkatieb

Just got back from an amazing week in Benidorm at this beautiful hotel. First time taking my little boy away (20 months) and this hotel was perfect for him. Children - Soft play downstairs was a life saver for keeping him entertained out of the sun, staff were so attentive and amazing with him, a bonus for us but maybe not for everyone no balcony to worry about him going on to, lots of food choices for him and a separate outdoor area with children pool and play area! Bedrooms - done to a very high standard, very luxurious and comfortable. Food - I am a extremely fussy easter so all inclusive usually isn’t the best for me but there was a sign in the restaurant area letting you know special requests can be made which gave me some reassurance but turns out I never actually needed to ask for anything, there was always something I liked and for those that are really fussy and those going with kids there is always chips! Area/Location - the location of this hotel was perfect for us, quiet area but lively enough. Right on the beach front close to little supermarkets, shops cafes etc. you can easily walk into the old town which we would do a couple times a day and about a 40 min walk from the new town which we did on occasion. Entertainment- there is in house entertainment on a evening which was always fab to watch quite low key and fun perfect for families. Staff- the staff were what really made this hotel for us, always happy to do anything for you before you’ve even asked, friendly, chatty just so wonderful! Especially the restaurant staff.

First time with the kids

Reviewed By K3115GPanthonyp

I have been coming to this hotel twice a year every year for over 15 years and I love the place but this time I came with my girlfriend and step kids. Now I love the place but I was worried if the kids would like having never being abroad before. It turns out I had nothing to worry about all the kids loved it and can't wait to go back next year even when asked if they would like to try a different hotel they all said they would like to come back to the Cristal park. But in the mean time me and the girlfriend have already booked again for October (just us two this time). I would like to especially thank Liana who went above and beyond to sort out rooms out she is a star and also Anita in the magic cafe who gets the drinks perfect every time and is always happy to help in anyway she can. See you all again in October ?
