... for the train to Benidorm I suggested we get some bottled water if we were going to hike...dah, yes, a good idea!
We left the tram at Costera Pastor and walked toward the water. Soon we were at the harbor and found a lovely promenade going north. After a while the pathway narrowed and we had to climb a steep stairway, walking onto a higher ridge above the ...

We seemed to be the only hikers this morning...well that was until we approached the dam where we encountered an enormous group of German hikers....fortunately they were headed the opposite way and we never saw them again.
Our happy group rounded the 50 year old dam and decided to stop for a ...

Today we walked "Best of Orxeta". It was a lovely walk around the reservoir just below the village of Orxeta. Our happy group of 10 struck out at about 9:30 to circle above on a higher ridge and then turn back to walk nearer the water. It is impossible to circumnavigate the water ...
... and enjoy the views a bit more. Midway we paused for a snack and short rest before we continued around the side of Sella, finally arriving at an approach to the midlevel of the town. 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 ...

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 ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Tryp Gran Sol Alicante
Amazing views from the 9th floor and above - recommended!
You can't miss this place when you arrive in the city. It towers above most other buildings in Alicante and so the views are superb. Inside it is modern and perhaps feels a bit business-like but our room was excellent and more like a small apartment really. TV (well at least CNN was in English), air-con, hairdryer, safe were all included.
The restaurant was pretty good and has a viewing balcony (although it gets pretty windy up there and looking down is a heart in mouth experience!). We only went up there at night but I reckon the breakfast / daylight views would be better.
Great hotel central position
Friendly welcome and great location after having found our way round Alicante one way streets. Quiet on 13th floor, and superb views out to beach and castle. Room was a good standard with aircon that actually worked in one of the hottest periods this year.
Breakfast buffet is great. Wide selection of food and drink and the only downside is to have to watch the calories!!! Staff are very helpful and attentive. When we come back to Alicante, we will stay again.
Views, Views and More Views
The views were breath taking. I was on the 24th floor overlooking Santa Barbara Castle and the beach/marinas. Hotel lovely and accommodating. I don't think I would stay anywhere else in Alicante. The beach is a short, short walk (right across the street to the Esplanada.) Visited Alicante twice and love it.
If you want to stay in a hotel with the best views overlooking the beach and harbour in the centre of Alicante then this is the place to stay! Just make sure you ask for a room on floor 15 or above if you don't mind heights.
Just returned from my 4th visit to this hotel in the last 3 years.
Perfect couldnt find any faults
My friend and myself stayed for 3 days at the Tryp Gran Sol Alicante. We did our research and caught the bus from outside the airport which dropped us off outside the hotel and cost us one euro each. How anyone couldnt find the biggest and brightest hotel in Alicante is beyond me. This is a first class hotel with excellent service and the views are to die for. I have stayed in many hotels in europe and never seen a view like the one from our window. Food was excellent rooms cleaned everyday and Alicante night life ...buzzing. All in all as two females we recommend Tryp Gran Sol.
Overall we had a decent stay at the Tryp Gran Sol. Our room was on the 16th floor, and the room and balcony had a fantastic view of the Mediteranean, the palm lined promenade, and the marina filled with fancy yachts.
Average, very friendly and helpful reception staff
Ive just got back from a four day stay at the Tryp
I thought everything about the hotel was ok - great views across the harbour, ample choice for breakfast, friendly reception staff, adequate rooms etc
my only gripe would be that all the tv channels were in Spanish!
Id only use this hotel as 'business trip' hotel rather than a holiday though as it had that feel about it
I stayed there last weekend, during the heatwave.
Alicantes needle in a haystack!
The hotel is in a great location if you want to make the most of the vibrant Alicante Marina night life.
It is not in the best location if you wish to park a car.
The rooms are adequate for the price and the air conditioning is extremely effective.
The 26th floor restaurant and bar, offer exceptional views of the whole of Alicante being one of the tallest buildings in the town.
