It's about a 20minute drive from our villa to the local beach of Arenal in Javea, once you arrive your greeted with lovely white golden sand, clear turquoise water and a beach front promenade full of small shops and restaurants. After being dropped down by bobby we found our way to a small stretch of the beach relatively clear ...
... spanish waiter who may also have owned the place. Once all seated and orders taken, the amusement began, cue some early birthday ribbing for Duncan who was very sensitive about it being his 50th birthday later in the week. Next up, the waiter started picking on people, getting a little too friendly with myself and Tash's brother (Josh) trying to stop me putting my arm around her and trying to put it ...
I'll be the first to admit, sometimes you just need a break from it all. Tash and I have been working very hard lately and coupled with other life events, we really felt like we needed a break. Happily, Tash's father had invited us along with her brother away for a vacation in Spain, arranged for his birthday by his wife. The journey there was frankly a little arduous, Tash had the unenviable task of driving us up ...
... for dessert. We went to a beach cafe that we had discovered earlier which had a huge variety of crepes available. Sverre had a chocolate banana crepe and I had chocolate coconut. They were much bigger than expected and the chocolate in it was superb! Not too expensive either. We spent Sunday organising and packing for the next part of our trips. Sverre still wasn´t sure when he´d be leaving but wanted to be organised for when the time came. I was leaving the next ...
... 1.5 hours on the bike so I was proper grumpy after taking a few wrong turns. The bike was actually more comfortable for my legs compared to Sverre´s since my knees were not as sharp angled. My butt was rather numb however so I was glad to be able to get off the bike and walk around. Once the rack was fitted, we headed to a place right in Valencia to get the many USB ports that Sverre needed for his millions of electronics. It turned out though that ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hospes Amerigo Alicante
Five Star Weekend
My partner and I arrived 17th March very early in the morning and were allowed access to our room immediately. Very friendly and helpful receptionists who recommended restaurants for lunch and dinner. Can't fault the hotel at all - very stylish. Lovely building and tastefully refurbished. Would definitely recommend it. The only down side was the weather, although it was warmer than London it rained for a couple of hours each day we were there and the sun only really shone when we were getting on the plane to come home! That's life!
Best 5* ive stayed in
If Carlsberg did hotels they would be like the Amerigo!
We (family with 3 children ..aged 10,13 17) found it extremely stylish, very convenient to shops, marina,restaurants etc
The staff were endlessly helpful and friendly. The free computer with broadband in reception was a great hit with the kids. The rooms are beautifully designed in a modern comfortable vaguely eastern style. They are spacious with fabulous bathrooms. The bedrooms work well with enough space for relaxing on the sofa watching TV or DVDs (available free in reception) and for the bed. The linen was gorgeous. In fact everything was great.
I would love to have a reason to go back to Alicante just to stay here!
Excellent all round hotel
Stayed at this stylish hotel for 3 nights Jan 06...two ladies doing lunch ! well eating, drinking and shopping actually..Hotel situated just two streets back from the Marina and seafront....Alicante has some wonderful restaurants and the hotel lounge was a haven to return to....staff very friendly and nothing ever too much trouble for them...kindly offered different wines for us to try of the locality..Breakfast a real treat...Open plan bathroom a novelty and anyone with back or any problems like that then you need to request a shower rather than the climb in bath thats on offer. Visited a wonderful restaurant called Monstrelle...a hidden gem, expensive but memorable.
Overall thoroughly enjoyed and would use this hotel again.
Great Hotel in the middle of Alicante's best
Stayed in the Amerigo for 3 nights for a short break and would recommend the hotel to anyone. Room was stylish and relaxing, spa area was superb and the bar area a joy to sit in and relax. The shopping area and beach front restaurants and bars are a 2 minute walk away.
I would recommend this hotel as a great place to stay and experience everything Alicante has to offer.
A stylish gem
We booked two nights here on the basis of recommendations on TripAdvisor and from friends. From the entrance onwards, this is a seriously stylish hotel. The staff are smart but not stuffy. The public areas are spotless and full of eye-catching furniture. The room was lovely and the Korres products a definite winner. The pool on the top floor is worth a visit although you may find it fuller than we did in November. The location is also great, right in the old town and close to some good tapas bars etc.
Just returned from a 3 night break at this wonderfull hotel. It's about a 15 min taxi ride from the airport @ 14 Euros. Located in the old town area just one street back from the seafront road it's in a prime location for the marina, beach & surrounding restaurants. Set on 4 floors with about 80 rooms the place has been decorated to a terrific standard in a classy minimalist sort of way. My wife & I stayed on a bed & breakfast basis & our room was wonderfull although the open plan bathroom was slighty different.Free minibar & a great selection of complimentary soaps' lotions & the like. Flat screen telly, electric sun blinds & a fantastic power shower. The breakfast was a terrific buffet of savaoury & sweet items plus the addition of a small cooked choice all served with fresh fruit juices....the best I've ever had!
Friends and I recently stayed at Amerigo in Alicante and fell in love with the place.
My fiance and I just got back from a vacation in Alicante, Spain. We were there for 4 nights. Amerigo is a gorgeous, modern hotel. I loved how it was decorated--it's the kind of place you wish your home was modeled after as far as the decor. The room isn't huge, but it's fine for 2 people. Everything was so up-to-date, for example we had a flat screen TV and a very nice, small cordless phone.
Esoteric breakfast, nice staff, if the price is reasonable, go for it
The Amerigo is in a building that's still being renovated (so beware, there is no pool YET). When I stayed there I believe I was one of few guests in a pretty large hotel. The breakfast is amazing - like a tasting meal, and not unreasonably priced. You can't have your laptop plugged into electricity and into the ADSL at the same time so bring an extremely long cord. The price had dropped which is why I chose the hotel. It had previously been going for well over $200 which would be an insane price to pay in Alicante...but if it's lower, it's worth it. Much nicer than the Melia and the Portamaris.
Arrived the same day as the Barcelona football team, 2 weeks after the hotel had opened.
Amazingly stylish, great roof top pool with beautiful and polite staff.
Seems slightly at odds with the more tourist parts of Alicante, but is complimented by a couple of good and stylish restaurants in the old town.
