... After that we found a nice beachfront restaurant to have lunch which included the longest ice cream bar i'd ever seen, featuring very possibly variety including things like Red Bull. We then caught a cab back to the villa and spent the rest of the day back by the pool, followed by a lovely bbq orchestrated by Duncan's friend ...
... restaurant. Upon heading out to said restaurant we quickly discovered that it was actually closed much to the confusion and bemusement of the group. Suddenly rather randomly a welshman driving a black bmw pulled up beside us and directed us to a spanish restaurant he highly recommended, hidden, just across the street. We took his advice and proceeded to this place and sat down to be served by a ...
... there after by his friends, a couple from Australia, Paul, known as Geezer and his wife Renee. We then walked down to where our slightly irate spanish bus driver was waiting. The journey to our villa in the 'nearby' town of Javea took about 45mins and we arrived to be warmly greeted by another couple, Duncan (Tash's dad)'s friends, Bobby and Sally. All in all, not too rough a journey but bed was very well received that ...
... Safari app but again no luck, this time it wouldn´t accept my credit card. I tried the app on Sverre´s ipad without luck and then finally used the ipad app that pretends its a pc. It took a while to figure out all the details but finally I had a 11 Euro bus ticket which I probably could have bought at the bus station just before I got on the bus. But I like to be organised! For dinner, we ate at home, but I decided we should go out and enjoy some of what Javea has ...
... another early night since we were still catching up on sleep and getting used to the new time zone. In the morning, we left at 9am on the bike all the way to Valencia where Sverre had organised to get the luggage rack fitted. I joined him mainly so I could check out what Valencia was like and see if I wanted to stay there. The roads were a bit confusing, so we took a few wrong turns and therefore it took a bit longer than expected. I usually get ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Eurostars Lucentum Alicante
Very Good Hotel
We stayed 3 nights at this great hotel. Reasonably large modern room with huge bed and well fitted bathroom. Well located just yards from the bars, restaurants and nightlife of Alicante. We paid only 60 Euros per night without breakfast which was good value. Happy to recommend this good quality 4 star hotel.
My husband and myself booked a cheap flight to Alicante from our local airport and after reading reviews decided on staying at the Hesperia Lucentum. The hotel reception staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We were given a high floor room, as we had requested on booking, and were not disappointed. The room was large with a comfortable bed and had a beautifully designed bathroom with a good powerful shower. The weather in Alicante that weekend was extremely pleasant (19 - 21 degrees) ,however, this did mean that the room was quite warm because the air condition was not working (It is winter in Alicante too even if the weather decided it wasn't) and we needed to open the window when we were in the room, which of course then resulted in us hearing quite a lot of noise from outside the hotel. The only other fault was that only coffee was kept hot and available at breakfast. They did have a pot of water on a heater for making tea but unfortnately decided not to turn it on for the 3 days we were there and they also decided no one would want the bread toaster on either. So my advice is if you like a cup of tea in the morning take a travel kettle. All in all this hotel was a good choice though and I would stay there again
Stayed here last week of december with my family of 8. The location is excellent, about a 10-15 minute walk to the esplanade. Of course, in the Summer you might want to be closer to the beach, but it really is a nice walk through town, and you get to see all the restaurants and businesses,etc. It is across the street from the central market. We walked everywhere from this location easily. There is convenient parking in the underground public garage.
This is a smart upmarket business hotel. And heavily caters for such clientele.
Just returned yesterday from a quick one night trip to Alicante.
Enjoyed the Hesperia Lucentum
This was a really pleasant hotel... modern, clean and stylish. The breakfast was great and the location was good. It's bit farther away from the beach than many of the other Alicante hotels (maybe 10-15 min), but the walk is enjoyable... right through town. At first I was disappointed not to be on the beach, but after a couple days appreciated this more central location. Overall, an excellent deal.
Well situated, modern and affordable. We stayed for 5 nights and had a very enjoyable stay. The rooms were spacious. The bathrooms were well fitted out with nice thick cut dark slate vanity unit tops, limestone wall tiles and nice dark porcelain tiled floors.
Super Hotel im Zentrum
Super Hotel im Zentrum von Alicante. Zu Fuss sind alle interessanten Plätze der Stadt in wenigen Minuten erreichbar. Sehr schöne, neue Ausstattung der Zimmer, sehr auber, drahtloses Internet gratis im ganzen Hotel, freundliches Personal. Top!
Great location, exceptionally good breakfast
Hesperia lucentum is one of the latest additions to Alicante's top-end hotel scene, and not a bad choice for a long weekend break.
Location is brilliant, everything is within walking distance; museums, bars and restaurants, shopping streets, and even the beach and the lovely harbour area.
The hotel is very design oriented, sometimes at the expense of practicality but also very spacious and comfortable. The breakfast is incredible and well worth the money !!!
The common areas (coffee bar, lounge) were a bit lifeless when we visited and there is no restaurant or room service as such. Luckily there's plenty of places around the corner for eating and drinking!
All and all a great base for exploring Alicante and the surrounding areas.
