Difficult to find
Posted Oct 24, 2011
We were due to check in at around midnight due to a late flight. We had a satnav, which did not recognise the address or hotel name at all and although we were at the port area we could not find the hotel. We called the number on our papers and were told to go to Guardamar (20 Minutes back the way we had come) and to call again. Confused as to where our hotel was by this time, we went back, called the number again, met the manager, who then told us to follow him back to Torrevieja (another 20 minutes). He lived in Guardamar and thought it was easier for us to meet him there. The complex was actually about 250 metres from where we were when we called him the first time, but he didn't seem to recognise any of the landmarks we gave him to say where we were. Finally got to bed at about 2 am.
Apart from better directions needed, the appartment was very roomy, lots of storage space, good location with views over the Marina. A little tired looking and in need of a lick of paint.
The only really bad thing I have to say is that the bed was absolutely solid - it was like sleeping on the floor.
For a 4 night stopover to visit relatives it was fine, not sure I would go there for a holiday simply because I probably wouldn't get enough sleep in the bed.
