... history is based on its coveted defensive port position, one of the most important in the western Med. It was also important because of the mining of iron ores, etc. It is now a major destination for tourists.
The weather continues to be beautiful. The Mediterranean Sea is so calm we don't even feel like we're moving.
... the rear, porch canopies front and back. Today (Wednesday) they are adding a roof lining to the awning as well as special lighting. It will be interesting to see their completed home-from-home before we go. Anyway, other than a trip out to the Lidl supermarket for supplies, we haven't been inspired to venture much further, particularly as David has come down with a 'flu-type bug and is not feeling too good. So he is on ...
... Walked and waded back to village, had a beer in tiny little pub with huge wooden beams, hundreds of years old. Could just picture the pirates getting on it. Another tee shirt. Swim at a crowded beach, some nice gin palace boats parked offshore. Strolled to other end of island, cute old cemetery, fortified tower and lighthouse. Ferry back to mainland, bus ...
... make them fit the hand, designed the letters designating each apartment and also designed the furniture.
La Sagrada Familia was breathtaking -my jaw literally dropped when I went in the basilica, and it's not like I hadn't seen pictures of it, but in person it's just so much more. Each main pillar is made of a different material, and they branch off at the top like trees, so I kind of felt like I was in super upscale Dr. Suess church. And again, ...

Then we headed south towards Motril, and on round the Mediterranean Coast, withamazing view but very few opportunities to stop and take photos. On then to Elche (Elx) where we were to meet Ricardo's friend Jesus (pronounced in the Spanish way with h instead of j). He doesn't ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Servigroup La Zenia Orihuela
El Hotel La Zenia es un hotel bonito. Es un hotel de 3 a 4 estrellas en una buena ubicación en la playa aproximadamente a 50 minutos sur del Aeropuerto de Alicante. Las habitaciones están bien amuebladas. La comida fue buena siguiendo los estándares para esta clase de hotel. El personal fue amable y servicial. El hotel forma parte de Servi Group Hotels. Reservamos directamente. Buen valor. Las compañías utilizan mucho este hotel para clientes que hacen viajes de inspección para comprar propiedad en el área. Hay una escasez de hoteles en esta área. Nos quedamos 2 noches, y me agradaría recomendarlo por su perfecta ubicación. Hay mejores playas como a 1.5 Km al sur. Afuera el hotel tiene una buena piscina por si hace buen clima. Adentro también tiene una piscina pequeña y climatizada, una sauna, etc. bajo un techo de vidrio, pero tienes que pagar 7€ para utilizarlo. PD. Si deseas un poco de lujo, trata el Campoamor Golf Hotel en las colinas cercanas aproximadamente a 5 Km. Nos hospedamos allí durante las primeras 2 noches. Vistas hermosas y pájaros cantando. Yo recomendaría Car Hire en el aeropuerto si te hospedas en esta área. Tommy el Turista
Éste de ninguna manera es el mejor hotel del mundo, pero es simplemente el mejor hotel de 3 estrellas en el cual me he hospedado, y yo viajo por Europa entre 7-8 veces al año. El personal es amable, el hotel es limpio, y la comida es como un 8 de 10, pero de todas maneras yo iría a algunos de los restaurantes locales. También recomiendo sumamente el Club Scala, que queda a una corta distancia en taxi.
Great hotel but nothing to do!
The hotel was very clean and tidy. The rooms were of a very good standard with air conditioning. The food was excellent value for money with a large variety, plenty for teenagers! The downside to the hotel was that there wasn't much to do or anywhere to go at night within walking distance ie. no gift shops, bars, restaurants etc. It was quite isolated with no other neighbouring hotels. Next door to the hotel was a small cafe/bar called M+M's, the food was excellent and the staff were extremely friendly- they made our holiday!
Draughty la zenia
Stayed at La Zenia for a long weekend in Feb 06, asked for a sea view and although the hotel was quite empty didnt get one, the french windows didnt close properly and being up quite high the wind whistled through the crack all night, in desperation i stuffed magazines in the gap to reduce the wind and the cold.
Breakfast good with plenty of variety, would have liked tea/coffee facilities in the room
as this is rated four stars and it took ages when ordering from reception, blankets a bit
iffy on the beds but you probably wouldnt need them if you get windows that close!!
Hotel La Zenia is a nice Hotel 3 to 4 Star Hotel in a Good Beachside Location approx. 50 minutes south of Alicante Airport. The rooms are well furnished. The food was Good as hotel standards go for this type of hotel. The staff were friendly and helpfull.The hotel is part of the Servi Group Hotels, we booked direct good value. The hotel is used a lot by Companies using it for clients on inspection trips to buy property in the area. There is a shortage of Hotels in this area we stayed 2 nights and I would be Happy to Recommend it for Location Location Location. There are better beaches about 1 mile south.
This Hotel is not the best in the World by any means but it is simply the best 3star Hotel I have ever been in and I travel around Europe 7-8 times per year. The staff are friendly, the Hotel is clean and the food is about 8 out of 10 but I would go to some of the local restaurants anyway. I also highly recommend the Club Scala which is a very short cab ride away.
We've been to this hotel several times, it's traditional Spanish style luxury inside, the food can sometimes not be amazing but then again it's All Inclusive usually, so its mainly a supply of burgers etc being left out most of the time, and replenished now and then.
Like many people in the area we were buying property and stayed here through an agent. The hotel was very good and clean with large rooms and great sea views. The food was limited but OK, entertainment in the evening was good and the bar was very busy with locals, expats etc and had a good atmosphere.
Very nice pool area and the beach next door is excellent and clean.
If I was staying in the area, I'd go for hotel La Laguna (about 30 mins away) which is excellent and in a different class. However, don't be put off staying here, it's good. Hope this helps
Four night stay B and B only
only one problem with towels which was just a human error which could happen anywhere. Overall stay was very enjoyable and I wouldnt hesitate to go back to hotel myself or tell friends about it. Entertainment good, very clean hotel with nice decor, staff friendly and helpful and positioned in a very lovely sight.
