... It was a crystal clear day and the views were breathtaking! We discovered a well marked trail and continued north stopping frequently to snap photos and to just enjoy the luck of having such a fine chance to enjoy where we live.
Lars knew the area because he had hiked here with our walking group and Jim and Lorraine McGovern while they were visiting us. I was ...
... walkers, with a very compatible pace for everyone. We parked in the village and like water rolling down the hill we followed the narrow streets toward the reservoir.
As we passed one small square a gathering of cats caught our eye and then we realized they were waiting outside the local fish shop...hoping for some scraps to come their way!
Soon enough we were ...

But now we were seaside, under the umbrella for me and in the sun for Lars...and in another few minutes we were bobbing in the surf. The water is cooling a bit but it felt so fantastic. Yes, heaven for us!
At around three Lars left me to go ...

A few hearty walkers decided to join Bill on the climb to the top while most of the rest of us sensibly adjourned to a local bar for a cool drink on the patio. It was a fine morning for walking and I got some great photos to share with ...

They were still building their 'snowbird nest', although the caravan was in situ, but since we have been here they have laid out a ground sheet across the pitch, erected a large 'penta' awning with utility ...

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.
