After we had left the caravan we drove to Altea to stay with Michel and Nacir who had invited us . When we arrived Michel was already prepared to start cooking and the huge Gamba's were ready to be put with the fish on the grill, miammmi ! Michel loves cooking and put all his pleasure and energy in preparing our lunch while chatting away with lots of Belgian humor and of course a fresh sangria and some wine ...
... and locals and set our towels down ready to soak up more sun, with a promise of a quick dip in the sea. I, unfortunately wasn't quite liberal enough with the suntan lotion and burnt a little across my stomach, arms and back. I decided, after much deliberation to get in the sea which turned out to be a little chilly, ...
... guests including the hosts are involved to some degree in the drinks industry the fridges were always well stocked! We also enjoyed a dip in the rather nippy unheated pool, which was quite nice after an afternoon of baking in the sun. Later that evening, Duncan's wife Em had rather amusingly attempted to book a local restaurant using a mixture of english, french and spanish with a rather adamantly ...
... straight after work to stay at a TravelLodge to catch the early flight the next morning (requiring a 3:40am wakeup call) after the stay and a short hop to the terminal we met up with the rest of the family and caught the flight direct into Alicante airport. Once there we waited a while for luggage and met up with other members of the party, Tash's dad's friend Des was already waiting at the airport cafe, joined a ...
... I wanted my backpack organised and to get rid of anything that I realised that I didn´t need (bye bye socks, gloves and cardigan). My backpack still seems too full and heavy after I´ve added some food and water so I may have to either get rid of or post some other non-esentials back. For dinner, we ate practically all the food we had left in the fridge. I had my usual panic about not having enough food and so we went to the supermarket but alas, its closed on ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Camposol Benidorm
I organised a Group Booking at the hotel, there was 17 girls on the trip we are called "Fat Friends", and are from South Wales. We had the best times of our lives, we had an absolute ball.
Yes the hotel was basic, but the hotel was absolutely spotless. Cleaned daily, including fresh towells and fresh bedding.
The Breakfast was a typical "Continental Breakfast", which includes the usual Bread Rolls, Ham, Cheese, Eggs & Bacon, Orange Juice, Tea, Coffee etc.
We met up with a great group of guys who were absolutely brilliant company, and us girls can't wait to book up again next year. We are definately booking Hotel Camposol next year.
I have just come home from a Hen party weekend at the camposol, the rooms were very basic but also very clean, we had maid service every day with clean towels and beds made.
Hotel Camposol was a basic hotel we stayed there in August with our 2 kids, we had 4 beds in one room. The room was air conditioned thank God, was cleaned every day, the pool was by far the best bit, small but shaded a welcome relief from the intense afternoon heat.
Poor , never again
very very very basic, worst room and hotel to stay, pool was small and if you do decide to stay the sun doesnt come until after lunch, the bar staff where nice and pleasent but reception where grumpy miserabile, not far from beach so youd better stay there after your dinner,, id say you could get much better for money ,we where charged 63euro per nite and the breakfast for worse ever so had to eat 3 times per day out,, ENTER AT OWN RISK,
Hotel fine for £20 a night. Slight smell at first from cleaning materials but soon disappeared. Clean comfortable room, bed linen and towells changed daily. Balcony rooms fine.Air con, TV, only Spanish though. No sign of any yobs, great nights sleep. Spanish pensioners were fine. Lift not held together by selotape, fine if you are not a child jumping up and down all the time. No stale rolls and coffee but crusty rolls with a selection of eggs, bacon, salami, mushrooms, toms, cheese, ham, spam ,cereals, juices, pastries, fruit for breakfast, much better than i thought after previous reviews!! Pool small but clean, sunny only late pm. Hotel caters mainly for Spanish so dont expect British package holiday welcome/ knees up every night. Plenty entertainment locally. Waiteresses/ staff work very hard. Good position 5 mins from beach. As Basil Fawlty said, When you look out of a Torquay hotel window, dont expect to see the leaning tower of Pisa, Herds of Wilderbeasts racing across the Serengeti!! You get what you pay for ie. a 2 star hotel not the Ritz!!
What can I say... we arrived to be given to keys to a cupboard, it was an internal room with a window looking out onto an internal tunnel (for want of a better word), it smelt frusty! and had two campbeds in it, there was no plug in the bedroom, has to use plug in the bathroom - you had to practically stand in the bath to open the door to get out. Despite the smell the rooms were clean, but basic is not the word it felt like a prison cell had we been staying for longer than 3 nights would have checked out straight away. It was full of Spainish pensioners and the atmosphere left alot to be desired - bar staff and maids we friendly enough - however reception staff were awful. The highlight of the hotel for us was watching a young British lad repeatedly jump in the pool and drown a couple of old spainish dragons with water...it was fab ... did consider joining him....
Worst hotel I have ever booked online. Taken over by large groups of yobs - the manager had ran off & left the staff to try and cope. They closed up shop at midnight (or often before) to avoid trouble - leaving sensible residents to be woken usually at 2am AND 4am AND 6am by large drunken groups bouncing round the hotel. I really would advise you to stay just about anywhere but here. I have stayed in very basic accommodation sometimes noisy without problem but this really was the pits!
Worst Hotel I have ever stayed in.
Smelly rooms. Staff unhelpful food atrocious.
Beds Broken. Floor of the lift was stuck down with tape.
Breakfast was a bread roll and a cup of tea.
Evening Meal was cold and unappetising salad was limp obviously old.
Sweets were ice cream and anything left from lunch and the night before.
Swimmimg pool never used because it never got any sun.
Every Meal we had to eat out.
My Husband and I have just returned from this Hotel, we stayed 2 weeks. the first impression was how clean and bright the rooms were. Before we went, we read reviews saying the rooms were sparse? we found them quite ample for our needs.
hotel really clean.Food OK if you like salad and spanish food.Hotel spoilt by yobs who came in at 6am shouting and breaking glasses. would recommend but not in Aiugust when yobs are about. Hotel deserves better clientel
