K FREW - December/January 2019/2020
Had the pleasure of staying for 5 weeks and could happily have stayed more! Everything was spot on. Highly recommended!
M PARNELL - October 2019
We had a fantastic time and will certainly use you guys again!
S EKREMSVIK - October 2019
This apartment is very nice. We have stayed here for 4 weeks 2 times, and we will be back next year. The furniture in the apartment is very nice - booking, payment and refund of deposit sent very well, thanks to Mark.
M MARTIN - September 2019
My sister and I stayed a week at this property. It was modern, exceptionally clean with added bonus of both Aircon and ceiling fans in every room.
D BURTON - September 2019
We have been to Gran Alacant a few times but this was our first visit to this apartment, it won't be our last. Modern, tastefully furnished, spotlessly clean, comfortable beds, great air-conditioning and fast reliable Wi-Fi. The solarium was great for lazy days and with bars and restaurants nearby we needed for nothing. Thank you for such a great stay.
L HARRIS - August 2019
The apartment was lovely and well equipped for all our needs.
K GRACEY - July 2019
Lovely apartment, very clean and comfortable and had everything that we needed. Within walking distance of bars and restaurants. Would definitely book through Alicante Holiday Villas again!
J NICHOLSON - June 2019
Couldn't fault the accommodation - apartment is good size, well laid out internally, little balcony which is perfect for breakfast leading to a staircase up onto the terrace - which is a great size, well kitted out with everything you need. Air Con was a god-send, and it was in lounge and bedrooms which was perfect. Good WiFi coverage. The only thing that might be a consideration for some is that as its a 1st floor apartment, there are a good number of steps up to the front door - plus steep set up to terrace. This may be an issue for some - thankfully it wasn't for us. Had a brilliant stay - if we were going back to the area again we would definitely go back to this apartment!
C COOK - June 2019
Great location near to supermarkets, bars & cafes - the accommodation was as stated and covered all my requirements. Booking very easy and quick with Alicante Holiday Villas (as always) and will be using you again when returning to Alicante. Thanks for a great holiday!
L STOREY - May 2019
Was excellent from booking the accommodation online right through to getting deposit back. We arrived at midnight, key was left for us in the key safe. The apartment is lovely, very modern and well equipped. Roof terrace was amazing! All my questions were answered, excellent host. We would definitely book this apartment again. Thinking of coming back April 2020.
C CLEMENTS - May 2019
Everything was just as described on line. We enjoyed our stay at this property and had no problems at all. Location was very good with bars and restaurants nearby. We would definitely book this property again. We would recommend this property.
C GOODWIN - April 2019
What a cracking find! This apartment truly is first class - clean, well equipped and furnished, with incredible attention to detail! Everything you would need in the kitchen is provided and the roof terrace gets the sun all day and is absolutely perfect spot to relax on. WiFi was fast, neighbours very friendly, first time we had been to Gran Alacant, but it definitely won't be the last! Thank you.
A RODGER - February 2019
First time we have stayed in Gran Alacant although we are familiar with the area. The apartment exceeded our expectations especially the fabulous roof terrace, the weather was nice enough on one of our afternoons to lay out on the sunbeds for a couple of hours...in February! There is everything you could need in the apartment and more (DVDs, books, a BBQ on the roof terrace) and the location is great too with shops, bars and restaurants a short walk away. Having said that the gated community with 3 lovely pools was lovely and peaceful in both the day and evening. We didn't visit the beach on this trip, it being February, but it was a 2 minute drive in the car or you can get the bus or the cute road train very easily. We can't wait to return!
V SALMI - February 2019
We stayed 5 weeks in this apartment during January and February 2019. The area was peaceful and the weather was mostly sunny. The apartment was just as described, comfortable and well equipped, as well as very clean. All what we needed was found there. We highly recommend this apartment.
J BEESTON - December 2018
Having been a property owner in Gran Alacant, we were impressed with standard of the accommodation. All furnishings and kitchenware were colour co-ordinated, it was lovely and warm with constant hot water and very quiet yet so close to the local bars and restaurants.
P DUNNE - September 2018
Booking was very easy and we received lots of information about the accommodation and local area. Apartment was just right for the two of us.
A PARROTT - August 2018
We were really impressed with the apartment - it was stylish and modern, all the crockery was new - every facility you could wish for in the kitchen. The bathroom is lovely. The shower is great - lovely and powerful. The bed was really comfy with the bedding being very cool and comfortable. The whole ambience of the apartment was lovely - you can tell the owners have put a lot of thought into all the furnishings. We were very impressed and will definitely book again.
M DIXON - August 2018
The apartment was as described, located near the pool with secure parking.
D ROBINSON - July 2018
This apartment was a great find. A little more expensive than others but well worth spending a little extra. On arrival it was spotlessly clean. The lounge is comfortably furnished and has excellent Wi-Fi plus UK and international TV channels. The double bed was very comfortable and the efficient air-con made sleeping very easy. The solarium was where we spent a lot of time and had a couple of BBQs. The communal pool is just a few steps away. Local shops, bars and restaurants are a couple of minutes walk. The tourist land train and circular route bus are excellent to get around on, including the superb Carabassi beach. Highly recommended.
J McKENDRY - July 2018
Excellent accommodation. I would definitely recommend it. The roof terrace is also a terrific space. The complex is well kept, with great facilities.
A BROWN - June 2018
Very good apartment, one of our top five in Spain. Well furnished, spotlessly clean, fast Wi-Fi, very effective air-conditioning. Superb roof terrace. Recommended!
D WILLIAMSON - May 2018
Very enjoyable stay, we loved every minute. Fantastic apartment with everything we needed. Great location for pool, bars/restaurants and public transport. Minor issue fixed within an hour, great service from the owner. Would stay again.
R OURDSHOORN - April 2018
The apartment is very clean and facilities are very good.
P PETTERSSON - October 2017
Wonderful apartment and Gran Alacant was fantastic.
L LEWIS - September 2017
We booked this apartment to stay in Gran Alacant in early September. The whole process was very professional from beginning to end. We were delighted with this two bedroom apartment. It was modern, spotless, well equipped and very comfortable indeed. The free Wi-Fi was invaluable for keeping in touch. This location is ideal for Gran Alacant, Alicante City and Santa Pola. We will certainly book this apartment again, many thanks to the Alicante Holiday Villas management for a wonderful holiday.
A WOODLEY - September 2017
This is our third time here, we love the area. The people are lovely, superb restaurants and bars great transport links basically everything you need for an affordable holiday. Will always recommend using Alicante Holiday Villas who have always been a pleasure to deal with. Thank you for another nice holiday.
D MURRAY - August 2017
Overall a great stay and easy to book.
E ECCLES - August 2017
We had a great family stay in this apartment, everything was as described. Very clean with lots of extras to make our stay easy. Bars, restaurants all within walking distance. The pool was less than 10 metres away. Excellent beach 5 minutes drive. Would definitely stay again.
R PLASKOW - August 2017
Great apartment in great location. Super safe for kids to have a little independence. A mix of travellers and locals, all very friendly. Supervised pools, convenience stores. Lovely coffee. Produce at local supermarket is great. Apartment had a little of everything on arrival. Much appreciated.
V LARSEN - July 2017
Very good and clean apartment. Good air-conditioning in all rooms.
J HALL - May 2017
The apartment was clean and well maintained. Very quiet area. The roof terrace brilliant sun all day. Local shops/bars and restaurants were excellent only 5 minute walk. Bed was very comfortable and everything for a good holiday was supplied. UK TV stations bonus. Used swimming pool every day clean and well maintained and was not busy during our stay.
D SHUTTLEWOOD - May 2017
My friend and I stayed in this accommodation for one week in early May. We both commented on the good quality of the furnishings, towels, bedding etc and how tastefully furnished the property is. There is also a very comprehensive information manual which you will find very useful; we still found it to be so, even though we have holidayed in Gran Alacant many times before. There is everything that you need in the apartment and it is in a perfect location i.e. really near to one of the 3 pools (you can see it from the front terrace area) and to a nice selection of bars and restaurants. It's also really quiet with no busy traffic or residential noise.The beach is absolutely stunning and well worth a visit; you can catch the land train there and back. You can walk there, but be very prepared for the steep walk back! Finally, the booking process - excellent, professional service throughout the whole process. On my return to work, I found the email confirming return of the security deposit had beat me back to work! I would highly recommend using Mark and the team at Alicante Holiday Villas for a seamless, easy holiday booking.
R GAY - January to April 2017
Firstly I would like to thank Mark on his communications and excellent service whilst booking & later when we were in the property. It was a bit of a fact finding exercise for us as we are thinking of buying a property in Spain. We decided to go in January for 3 months having been plenty of times in summer and wanted to experience a Spanish winter. The property has just about everything you could want even shopping bags and most importantly a bottle opener. We found the location very good for our needs. Within easy reach of some nice bars and restaurants. It's a fair walk to the Gran Alacant commercial centre about 15/20 minutes downhill. There are two supermarkets much closer plus a British mini-market, handy but a little expensive. We loved the natural beach especially the coast road to Santa Pola (nice walk about 2.5 hours). Lots of walks near the accommodation, very popular with mountain bikers.
A BUSH - October 2016
The accommodation was faultless during our stay, we will be returning.
A HEDGES - October 2016
We have stayed at this apartment 4 times and would do so again as everything about Alicante Holiday Villas continues to be first class in every aspect. This includes the ease of the booking process to the help and professionalism of the lovely people running this business. From the location to the quality and cleanliness of the apartment it cannot honestly be faulted unless you are completely pedantic. A car is beneficial however local transport is very good particularly for getting into Alicante and Santa Pola. We would question anyone who was not happy staying here - simply top dollar.
W SHEA - September 2016
To put a star rating on this accommodation it would have to be five star plus, it was like walking into a hotel suite, everything was there, and the welcome pack was better than expected. Then you get a sunroof with sun from dawn till dusk, should you need a break to cool down all rooms apart from kitchen have fans and air-con all remote controlled, what more could you ask? Well there are local supermarkets, shops and bars with food, the local tourist train runs every hour and takes you to the beach, large supermarkets, and weekly markets. One last thing my security deposit was back in my account the day after my return where else would you get service like that? We will be back.
P DOHERTY - September 2016
This is an excellent property but may not be suitable for four adults. We traveled as a couple and found it to our needs. We particularly enjoyed the rooftop sun terrace and the air conditioning was nice to return to. All equipment and furnishings were to a high standard. The provision of beach umbrellas was an unexpected bonus. The area, although quite built-up, was quiet. There are plenty of bars and restaurants nearby. The tourist train is good value at 3 Euro per round trip and the frequency of the local bus service means you are not stood waiting in the glorious, though sometimes overbearing, sunshine. I would not hesitate to recommend Alicante Holiday Villas and this property.
S ADU - August 2016
Cleanliness, booking, directions and overall value for money – fantastic. We would book again.
H SCHMIDT - July 2016
To inquire and book apartment through Alicante Holiday Villas has been easy. The apartment was as described fine and clean and suitable for a family of 4. The roof terrace was a big plus, as was the Wi-Fi which worked flawlessly. The pool which was closest to home was fine and there was friendly lifeguards.
M BOOKER - July 2016
Had a great time here. The apartment is well furnished and well equipped - with the huge roof terrace and BBQ a real bonus for all the family! We found the local restaurants great value for money and excellent service, although we tended to eat in many evenings using the BBQ on the roof terrace. We all thought Gran Alacant was a brilliant place to holiday in and we have decided to come back next year with family and have booked a large villa through Alicante Holiday Villas, whose service throughout and prompt refund of the security deposit was unbeatable!
D COOK - June 2016
Have just spent an excellent 7 nights in this fantastic apartment. From start to finish everything has been great. The apartment was spotlessly clean, well furnished and comfortable beds. The roof terrace was where we spent most of our days with a few visits to the very close by pool. There are bars and restaurants within a few minutes walk, La Piedra was a favourite. We took the land train to the main commercial centre a couple of times where we found Get Fresh and La Matola both very good restaurants. We recommend both this apartment and Gran Alacant.
D KLAUS - May 2016
My family spent a very good week at this apartment. It was very clean and well furnished. My children loved the pools, the beach and the little train in Gran Alacant. My wife and I very much liked the roof terrace! A very nice apartment for holidays.
J SOULIER - January & February 2016
We spent two months in this apartment and everything was good. Our stay was great and from Gran Alacant, it's easy to visit a lots of interesting places around.
A MORGAN - August 2015
Have just returned from a fantastic holiday. I found the booking process seamless, the apartment is just as described, fantastic attention to detail. The resort is quiet, however this is what we were looking for, we managed to keep our two young kids entertained with no problems. We ate in different place every night, food always good quality and value for money with plenty of choice. We had a small issue with the safe, we phoned the keyholder and it was sorted straight away. The apartment is very secure with excellent air-con. The English supermarket is very expensive, it is well worth walking a little bit further to the Spanish supermarket, much better value and plenty of choice. The beach is lovely. The sun terrace is an added bonus. You have the use of three pools, one being two doors from the apartment, again lovely. Last but not least the free Wi-Fi was very fast, it coped with multiple use with no buffering. Very good selection of English channels on the TV.
D PRESTON - August 2015
The apartment was actually very nice. Both bedrooms are a good enough size for a family of four, and the living room area / dining table is spot on. I thought the kitchen was a touch on the small side, but we ate out pretty much every night anyway, as there were several lovely places to eat within walking distance. The terrace and the fact that the shared pool is literally on your doorstep made the property. The beach / sea are lovely, but you do have to get the land train really, which is quite fun to be honest. Overall, a very enjoyable two weeks.
L DAGLISH - July 2015
I was at this apartment with my family - the apartment and facilities were just as described on website. An excellent apartment with great facilities.
R WARREN - July 2015
Fantastic apartment, really well equipped. Mark and his team were brilliant, very efficient service 10 out of 10. We had a lovely holiday.
S MADSEN - May 2015
Nice and clean apartment and easy to book. The rental price was good. Good location.
M LESSLIE - May 2015
Apartment was excellent, could not have asked for better. Everyone was so friendly. Found the whole process easy, quick prompt contact with company. Had a wonderful holiday stress free, and shall most definitely be back at this apartment again. Everything close at hand. Thank you again for all your help.
R BABER - April 2015
We were impressed by the modern furnishings and layout, this may have been the nicest place we've ever stayed. The kitchen was good, so was the bathroom, the Wi-Fi was excellent (very important to us with a business to run back at home). The whole place was well suited to our needs, with two teenage boys; close enough to the local shops and eating places plus bus stops to get around. Contact with the property manager was quick and polite, everything was explained well and easy to follow.
D BARTHOLOMEW - December 2014 to February 2015
The apartment was excellent. Very clean, tidy and more than adequate. The whole complex was very secure, parking was excellent and we felt very safe. There were more than adequate small shops and bars/restaurants within walking distance, and lovely beaches within a short drive. Santa Pola was our favourite! Excellent on site manager, always on hand if we needed him, and very quick and efficient with responses when contacted. Thanks for a great stay!
A HEDGES - October 2014
This was our second visit. A very clean, comfortable and modern apartment with all you need for a long or short stay. The free Wi-Fi is a particular bonus as many apartments in the area do not offer this. The balcony and roof terrace makes breakfast and relaxing an absolute pleasure whilst the communal pool is on the doorstep. The people at Alicante Holiday Villas made the whole experience completely seamless and are to be congratulated for making our holiday superb. Gran Alacant is a very pleasant and quiet area but with plenty of bars and good restaurants on offer. With a car it is very easy to reach the wonderful beaches, the city of Alicante and the large town of Santa Pola. Even without a vehicle all of these places are easily accessible through either the local bus system or the Gran Alacant tourist train. This is definitely an apartment we will book again. Five star Plus.
G HUME - October 2014
We had a very relaxing holiday with fantastic weather thrown in.
C SWAFFIELD - September 2014
The location of this apartment is great with just a stroll to the pool. Only a 20 minute stroll down to the beach, which is definitely worth a visit. The roof terrace gave fantastic views across to Alicante and beyond, having a brick BBQ was great and used most days. Lovely quiet area and would definitely stay at this apartment again.
A WOODLEY - August 2014
We had a lovely holiday, cannot find any fault with this apartment!
L HECQUET - July 2014
We (2 adults and 2 children of 8 and 11 years) stayed at the apartment for two weeks in July 2014. Everything, from the first contact to Alicante Holiday Villas through booking, directions and arrival was smooth and easy. The apartment was in excellent condition, spotlessly clean and the kitchen was fully equipped with whatever we could wish for. The area was nice and quiet, the beach is fantastic! The pool was nice and very clean - only thing to consider is that there are some restrictions about jumping, no floating devices etc, The restrictions are reasonable and necessary, though, as it prevents too much nosily behaviour...and if you want to jump and shout - there´s the beach nearby! We highly recommend staying here!
S SWIFT - June 2014
By far the best apartment we have ever stayed in! Beautifully clean, modern and close to everything. The roof terrace was an added bonus as was the free Wi Fi, we will certainly be looking to return later this year. Thank you for everything!
T WITHERS - May 2014
We intend to visit again next May!
L ALFORD - May 2014
The apartment was lovely, clean and modern, well laid out, rooftop terrace great, altogether super. We had a lovely time and will definitely look at booking through Alicante Holiday Villas again.
M FELDT - April 2014
Thanks for a great stay. Everything from booking and the rest was great! I hope to come back!
D GREENTREE - April 2014
The property is very well laid out. The quality of the finish in all rooms is very good. The kitchen equipment was more than adequate for a family of four for 12 days. The satellite TV and Wi-Fi is excellent for those with teenage kids. The bathroom was modern and well laid out. The balcony and roof terrace make the property. All in all we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would look to book again.
A HEDGES – October 2013
The whole process from booking the apartment through to arrival was seamless. The apartment was spotless and exceptionally well maintained with everything you need for a comfortable holiday. The Alicante Holiday Villas web site was spot on in terms of information relating to the area, location and access to local transport, bars, supermarkets and restaurants. The free Wi Fi was most useful and we will certainly stay here again and would not hesitate to recommend Alicante Holiday Villas to friends and family.
N O’MALLEY – October 2013
Was all as described, everything was good.
G HUTTON – September 2013
Lovely apartment with all mod cons - English TV and Wi-Fi were a real bonus! Decor is modern and tasteful. Pool is only 30 seconds walk and a selection of bars and restaurants are 5 minutes. There are a couple of good restaurants in Sierra Mar which is a short 15 minute walk (La Paletta and Patagonia were our favourites!). We used the Towel Service, ordered a Welcome Pack and hired some baby items - all were delivered on time, were present and correct and good value.
S BALDWIN – August 2013
This is the nicest holiday apartment we have ever stayed in, it was truly fantastic. The pool areas were all clean, well-kept and relaxing. Loved the resort. We don't normally go back to the same place twice but we are hoping to get booked soon for next year back to Gran Alacant.
E FOX – July 2013
My family and I had a fantastic holiday here. From booking this apartment all contact I had with staff was excellent. The standard of the accommodation was excellent value for money and I will definitely stay here again and recommend it to my friends. The roof top solarium was great; the pool areas were well maintained and very close. The nearby amenities were enough without it being too busy and overcrowded.
L GUNNBERG – July 2013
The location was exactly as we expected and we didn't have any problem finding it. The pool was nice and not crowded. The nearest beach was fantastic with lots of space, clear and warm water. Possibility to make long walks along the seaside. Good price shops at short distance and fresh bread every morning just around the corner. Great place to stay for a calm holiday with a lot of bathing in the pool or the sea.
D ANSEEUW – June 2013
Everything was just perfect!
K O’REILLY – May 2013
The property was exactly as described, immaculately clean & well furnished, with all you could possibly need to make your stay relaxed & trouble free. The roof top terrace is an added bonus, where you can sunbathe and also enjoy the great mountain top views. If you are considering booking this apartment I would say to go ahead knowing that you won't be making a mistake. The surrounding area is also very quiet, which means you can be sure you will get that all important sleep when you need it.
W HOWARD - March 2013
An excellent apartment for the 2 of us. We stayed for 10 nights at the end of March. Quality of furnishings exceeded our expectations, we could not fault any aspects of the apartment itself. The rooftop terrace was fantastic. All the admin with Alicante Holiday Villas was quick, easy and trouble free. Plenty of good eateries and a supermarket within walking distance.
R ROBSON - February 2013
Lovely accommodation in good position.
B JACKMAN - September 2012
Everything we had hoped for and more. Well-equipped and very clean. Great location for bars, restaurants and public transport.
J HARRISON - August 2012
Property was excellent. The roof top solarium was fab when we just wanted some peace and quiet. Pool very clean and also peaceful, the lifeguard there did a very good job. The land train was great to get out and about at a very low cost if we felt the need to venture further afield but that didn't happen very often, maybe to the fab beach. The surrounding area bars made us very welcome and we made some friends while we were there. Overall we had a fab time and we enjoyed the peace and quiet. Just what the doctor ordered.
J O'HAGAN - August 2012
Very clean, good value for money accommodation. We would stay again.
M ROBERTS - July 2012
I can honestly say this was the best apartment we have stayed in and we are seasoned travellers! Comfy beds, spotlessly clean, A/Con was a boon in July, internet, Satellite TV, modern furnishings, all you could need in the modern kitchen and the roof terrace was amazing - already looking to return in 2013! Many many thanks for a super holiday and please pass on our thanks to the owners and cleaners.
V GAHAN - June 2012
Wonderful from start to finish! So easy to book and pay and got the deposit back as soon as we got home. Accommodation was great, clean and spacious with a handy coffee machine. The area is great with a pool two doors away. Supermarket two minutes away and plenty of restaurants at good prices. The land train in Gran Alacant is fab to get around. Trip worth taking is to Tabarca Island and go snorkelling, there are so many fish to see. All in all a great location, accommodation and I would love to go back.
P RAWSON - June 2012
The apartment was excellent with a great roof top terrace. Great location for bars, restaurants and shops. Would not hesitate in booking again.
C ROELS - March 2012
Alicante Holiday Villas provided a perfect setting for a very enjoyable and relaxing holiday in Spain with literally at the top - the roof top solarium!
A MARTIN - January 2012
Accommodation to a high standard. Some restaurants nearby closed during the week as it was winter.
S HARPER - January 2012
Have just returned from a long weekend break and were very impressed! We have stayed in Spain in the winter before and been cold at night, but the heating, duvets etc in this property made it lovely and cosy. Also very impressed with the standard of furnishings and facilities (better than we expected) and the fact there were some very nice restaurants within walking distance (5 minutes max!) - especially Fricandos and the Patagonia Steak House. We will return!
M LOVE - September 2011
The restaurants and bars nearby the apartment were great, good food and friendly people. Also the land train was excellent for getting to the shops etc because we did not want to hire a car. The owner of the land train and also the drivers were extremely helpful and friendly.
C O'CONNELL - September 2011
From our first email to Mark about the apartment, Mark replied straight away and with any other questions I had. From the taxi pickup at the airport to collecting the keys from the safe everything was spot on. The security deposit was in my bank account a day after returning home. The apartment is of a high standard which we would book again. The roof top solarium was great for sunbathing and being able to just pop downstairs for iced drinks was great. The area around the apartment felt safe day and night and the neighbours were friendly, the swimming pool only a few doors away was kept clean and great for a morning swim but the larger pool had more room around for sunbathing. Shops, bars and restaurants only minutes away. Take the land train or local bus to the Gran Alacant commercial centre for a fab curry at the Gallery restaurant. We also took the bus to Santa Pola and had tapas near the harbour and looked at the boats before walking along the promenade. Thank you Mark, we will book with Alicante Holiday Villas again.
S HESLOP - August 2011
Probably the best equipped and best value for money apartment we have stayed in. Spotlessly clean, roof top terrace fantastic. Great holiday. Thank you.
M GREEN - July 2011
Apartment superb value for money, well equipped and comfortable. Spent most of our time on the roof terrace or by the pool. Easy walking distance to bars, restaurants and supermarket. Thank you.
A HICKEY - June 2011
Overall we had a great time there and the apartment was perfect for us and the pool a definite bonus.
E DUDA - April 2011
Everything was on really very good level, I am very satisfied with the Alicante Holiday cooperation, which is as simple as possible and very clear for me!
C THOM - April 2011
Thanks for a very nice holiday!
O FOMSGAARD - March 2011
Once again a very pleasant stay with Alicante Holiday Villas. The apartment has been upgraded with a new kitchen and is very well functioning. As for the keyholders the service is absolutely excellent. We arrived late on a chilly night and found the apartment with a welcoming light turned on as well as the heating. We are already looking forward to staying with Alicante Holiday Villas again
A ADAMS - August 2010
We truly had the most fabulous, relaxing and just simply one of the best holidays yet!
M JIMENEZ - August 2010
We were very pleased with your services. Thank you for everything. We had a pleasant stay. The apartment was very good and very clean. The explanation given by Mark on the trip and all we could see around Gran Alacant was perfect. We will not hesitate to share your contact information to our friends.
E CARROLL - June 2010
I would like to thank you for a lovely holiday very secure/safe/friendly/relaxing. And to say the keyholders were most helpful, they went out of their way to make our holiday most enjoyable, I would like to say a big thank you to both.
O FOMSGAARD - March 2010
Just returned after our 3rd stay with Alicante Holiday Villas. Once again our expectations were fully met. Although the weather in the first week of March was not the very best we had a wonderful stay and used the opportunity to go trekking many of the beautiful trails within a short distance from Gran Alacant. Alicante Holiday Villas, the apartment and the surrounding area is absolutely recommendable. We will definitely go there again.
C HOARE - January 2010
The booking process and information was clear, precise and user friendly. What Alicante Holiday Villas said they would do, they did. The directions supplied were excellent and easy to understand. Information about the area was helpful. The apartment was exceptionally clean and tidy, and well presented. What was detailed on the website was present upon our arrival. The local keyholder was helpful. The after service from Alicante Holiday Villas was excellent and the security deposit was returned immediately upon our return home. I would have no hesitation recommending Alicante Holiday Villas to any of my friends or relatives. Alicante Holiday Villas really represents excellent value for money.
P VIK - November 2009
My wife and I had 3 wonderful weeks in property 461, Gran Alacant. The property is located in a quiet area, but yet central, regarding shopping, restaurants, bus stops and swimming pools. The roof terrace was a must, with a nice view and some very comfortable sun loungers. We spent most of the day there, with warm and sunny weather and good food. The location is also very suitable for jogging and walking, if anybody likes to have some exercise during the stay.
J BUSBY - September 2009
Friendly, felt safe, weather good.
S RUSSELL - June 2009
Thank you very much for making our holiday as easy as possible we all had a lovely time and didn't want to come home. A week certainly was not long enough for us. We really enjoyed our holiday at this apartment. The kids loved the pool, and the keyholders were always very helpful, they gave us local information about the markets etc and directions to anywhere we needed to go. We hired a car which was very useful for us to allow us to shop at the bigger supermarkets rather than the smaller shops and more expensive supermarkets. Santa Pola beach is lovely and just 10 mins by car. Alicante is not far away either. The land train is lots of fun to go on, and takes you round all of Gran Alacant (which is very big). There is a lovely restaurant called Phoenix Nights which is down near Gran Alacant beach and very reasonably priced. The kids loved it there, and you can get there by the train. All in all a lovely holiday, I would recommend it to friends and family and we would book again with Alicante Holiday Villas.
M LONDON - May 2009
We have just returned from our wonderful holiday to Alicante and would like to thank you for your outstanding service! The apartment in Gran Alacant Altomar 2 was exactly as described by yourself and the descriptions on the website. It was very clean, spacious and most of all, extremely homely! There was everything we needed in the apartment from the washing machine to the barbecue and even to the books and board games in the lounge. Your description on the local amenities were absolutely spot on and catered for all of our needs and the local bus services were great for getting around on, were punctual and very cheap (1.50 Euros to Alicante town centre)! The local beach was lovely and had golden sands for miles. The local bars, restaurants and shops within Gran Alacant were great too. Thank you for the welcome pack on arrival and please thank Mike and Diane for their friendly local knowledge and help too! We will be booking again with Alicante Holiday Villas for our next holiday and will be recommend you to all our friends and family! 5* friendly and reliable service!!
D MELLORS - April 2009
The apartment was clean with excellent facilities and the sun terrace was a real bonus. It was useful having the keyholder close at hand with tips about the area, places to eat and visit etc.
A MALINAUSKIENE - February 2009
Our holiday was beautiful, we travelled a lot, its first time in Spain. Alicante Holiday Villas Management very excellent. We had all information on time before our travelling. Thank you very much for excellent service.
O FOMSGAARD - February 2009
We spend the last week of February in prop. 461. Everything regarding booking, key collection, cleanliness was perfect. We really enjoyed the pleasant weather 15 to 18 degrees C on our very private roof top terrace. There is a lot of interesting places and good restaurants within driving distance, perfect for us being a small family with one teenage son. Absolutely recommendable!
N CLARK - September 2008
Our first visit to the resort and thoroughly enjoyed it and will return and recommend the package to friends. A car is essential for part or whole of the stay, certainly beaches are not walking distance. A great location and resort.
A WALKER - August 2008
What a super property! We have stayed all over mainland Spain and the Islands and I have to say this is the nicest, cleanest and most well-equipped property we have stayed in! Please pass on our thanks to the owners - they obviously take a great deal of thought! We have already recommended this property and Alicante Holiday Villas to friends and family! Well done to everyone!
L GILKES - March 2008
I am very pleased with the apartment. Although it's unlikely that I will be coming again to Alicante, I'll let my colleagues know about it.
B SORENSON - February 2008
Everything was excellent handled by Alicante Holiday Villas - professional and swift. We had a very nice stay in Alicante despite the weather conditions (windy and not too much sun). It is a very beautiful area with nice beaches. We would like to come back during summer times.
D McCALL - September 2007
Just what me and my family was looking for in a holiday - stress free from start to finish. We would like to thank yourselves for making the booking proccess so simple for the apartment and the car. The directions from the airport to the apartment were perfect. The apartment was superb - so clean and tidy you would have thought we where the first people to stay there. The only upset we had was to leave at the end of the week! But will look forward to booking with you for next year. Many thanks
M HURST - September 2007
Apartment was very clean and is exactly as described on web site. Location was perfect for the smaller shops and bars nearby (5 mins walk), but still far enough off the main road to be quiet and relaxing. Lovely views from balcony and private roof terrace. We decided to hire a car from Alicante Airport and to be honest we would highly recommend one if you plan on shopping at the larger supermarkets and for visiting the beach as they are quite a trek on foot. Overall we had a great time and are already working out some dates to return in 2008. Big thumbs up to Mark & Haidee at Alicante Holiday Villas!
C SHARPLES - February 2007
We had a last minute booking and I was concerned that the documentation would not arrive. I was worrying needlessly as the prompt and efficient booking service you provide worked perfectly. The informative website gave us an insight to the area and beyond. This allowed us to use the days to maximum benefit! The directions provided were first class. The apartment was spotless and I cannot commend the keyholders more highly. Friendly and helpful, even offering to give us a lift to the supermarket or get our shopping, as we did not have a car. They made our stay even more enjoyable as they made us feel at home. The restaurant they recommended, 'Cocoa', was great fun. We had a great time, much of this was due to the quality of the apartment. The owners obviously take great care of the property, which makes a stay so enjoyable. We liked the leaflets on the kitchen notice board that gave us a few ideas to look up or visit. Although with great weather and that fantastic roof terrace it was hard to leave!! Thank you for the prompt return of the security deposit. We would recommend your service, and this property to all our friends.
J HOEG - February 2007
Booking process, key collection excellent. Apartment very clean and very centrally situated, near city, airport and shopping facilities etc, we would recommend.
J KELLY - November 2006
The property provided the perfect place for a relaxing break and lived up to all expectations!
A LENNON - September 2006
Everything was excellent. Very clean and tidy place to holiday, nice and quiet with friendly people, will certainly be booking again
M REEVES - August 2006
Apartment v. comfy. TV system worked well. Able to sleep c/o the aircon and ceiling fans! Roof terrace - the best bit late evening where you catch any breeze there is. Restaurants - bit of a hike to find any Spanish food, but the Dunbars and La Palma were very good. Good pools, Diane next door friendly & helpful. The beach road from Gran Alacant to Santa Pola is worth mentioning as is the lovely promenade walk into Santa Pola. Easy trip into Alicante which we loved as a city. Recommendations for tapas and fish restaurants would be nice, but we found some off La Ramblas. All in all a comfortable and enjoyable stay, would certainly recommend it to anyone who didnâ€™t mind all the English places! Thanks again
S SAMSON - July 2006
Great accommodation, great atmosphere, great neighbours, great time had by all! Most of all Sara and I miss sitting on the wonderful roof terrace watching the stars with a bottle of wine - England may be as warm at the moment, but we know it won't last! Thank you so much for a fantastic time - the apartment is wonderful and would heartily recommend it and Alicante Holiday Villas to anyone!
D HAY - May 2006
I thoroughly enjoyed the stay in Gran Alacant. I've been here a few times now and find it a relaxing place, where you can do as much or as little as you like. Shops & bars are within walking distance - everything you need. The bus service into neighbouring towns is regular too - and only a short walk from the Altomar II complex. Look forward to returning for another rest! The accommodation was excellent too
S COOMBER - March 2006
Thanks for a great apartment. Spotlessly clean and well furnished with a lot of homely touches, we didn't want for anything! Special thanks to the keyholders who couldn't be more helpful! We have recommended your site already to friends. Thanks once again
R PATRICK - January 2006
Had a great time, great apartment, wonderful views, very clean and well-equipped. Our first time to Gran Alacant but will certainly book again!
R PRIOR - October 2005
Property as described, no false illusions. Very good!
S DOWNES - September 2005
One word - fantastic!!!!! The kids loved the pools, we loved the balcony and terrace and we all loved the beach. Mike and Dianne, the keyholders, were a wealth of information and always had time for us and our questions. We had some great days out and have all fallen in love with Gran Alacant. We will contact you again for 2006, thank you for a wonderful holiday and the best of luck with your business, you both deserve it
D ALLIN - July 2005
We were very impressed with the beaches, the sea was warm and very clean. We used two of the pools and both were good although we would have liked some additional facilities around the pool areas. The presence of a life guard at the pools was also very reassuring. The furnishing and appliances etc within the apartment were very good.
M FRANK - July 2005
Directions and key collection instructions were very good and your keyholders Mike and Dianne were excellent. We would book with you again. We liked the area, the mix of tourists and residents. But still we managed to cook - at least we gained weight! Very best regards
S HANSEN - July 2005
The booking process and Alicante Holiday Villas knowledge of the area was excellent. The property was very clean and well equipped and very good value for money. Mike and Dianne the keyholders were excellent also, we will book again. Thank you!
P KING - June 2005
Excellent in all respects, the booking and the accommodation, will not hesitate to recommend to family and friends. We will come back! We liked the quiet residential area and the fact that it was a good base to travel to Alicante / Campello / Santa Pola
C QUINN - May 2005
Thanks, we had a good stay and were very impressed by the cleanliness of the apartment. Don't trouble yourself about returning the mirror compact, I have many more at home. I hope you will be able to help us find accommodation when we next go to GA. Our property is nearly ready but we still do not have a final moving in date. Cheers.
S CALLENDER - April 2005
This was our first holiday abroad as a family and it was very enjoyable. The keyholders were friendly and helpful. The local cafes were nice and very friendly. It was a wonderful holiday and we would consider booking again
M REVELEY - January 2005
The cleanliness of the apartment was excellent and the apartment was superb value
C PHILLIPS - November 2004
Just wondered if this apartment is available for 16 - 23 July 2005. Had such a great time last year we want to do it again!
J LUNN - September 2004
It was a most enjoyable holiday! Thanks to all.
S TOOLE - August 2004
We had a wonderful stay, thank you!
C PHILLIPS - June 2004
Just wanted to say what a fabulous holiday we had at Gran Alacant, the apartment was fantastic and we loved everything about the area. I will be booking with you again
