If you like a bit of exploration, then Alicante is the part of Spain for you. This gorgeous destination has a quaint old town of whitewashed houses, a medieval castle built on a mountain and some of the best beaches on the east coast. The four-star Hotel Bonalba Alicante is located only a short distance from famous San Juan beach and the city center, making it perfect for a balanced break of sandy strolls and Spanish culture.
Surrounded by an 18-hole golf course, this TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence winner allows you to spend days on end practicing your winning swing and perfecting your par. Once you’ve worked up an appetite, you can head back to the hotel restaurant. After you’ve filled up on local dishes, you can finish up with cocktails at the pool bar – who said you had to be outside the hotel to keep exploring?
The spacious and bright rooms are built for a comfortable stay and a fabulous night’s sleep. You can enjoy views of the golf course and sparkling swimming-pool area in yours.
Gear your taste buds up for a smorgasbord of local and international cuisine at the hotel’s two restaurants. Pop into Restaurante Amapola for a romantic atmosphere or Restaurante Cervantes if you want your meal with a pool and lush-garden backdrop.

In addition to being able to lounge in the indoor and outdoor pools, you’ll have the option to find pure bliss at the hotel’s spa. Featuring a spa tub, sauna, steam room and treatment rooms with massages, facials and body therapies, the spa will leave you feeling revitalized from head to toe.
You’ll be near the lovely Campello Beach and the sun-soaked city of Alicante. This capital is bustling with fabulous beaches, buzzing nightlife and a quaint old quarter. Visit the Castillo de Santa Barbara, which looks down over the Barrio Santa Cruz, a charming little warren of whitewashed streets. This area is the very center of this city’s nightlife, which is bursting with hip clubs and hole-in-the-wall bars. During the day, why not spend some time visiting the Canelobre Caves and Albufereta Beach?
How to Get There
Rooms are large and comfortable. The outdoor pool is old but still has a pleasant and self-contained side. The lack of cheese for breakfast during our trip had caused trouble. I think it's fixed. My wife loved the portrait of Audrey Hepburn at the entrance to the breakfast room.
We stayed overnight for my birthday. The room had ample space and was spotlessly clean, with a balcony. The dinner and breakfast buffets were excellent, with good variety and well cooked food.
The staff sang Happy Birthday and the service was very good.This is a holiday hotel which is very good value for money.
The bed was very comfortable but the holiday activities went on a bit late for us, but ideal for younger people
What I liked:
The rooms are big, the AC works good and the towels are also nice. The couples massage was good too.
What I did not like:
No accouterments for coffee
Assigned seating at breakfast
only one elevator to the car park
Check-in // check out - you will need a LOT of time
No peep hole in the room doors.
Plastic plants that have not been dusted in months
