Beach Life

A travel blog entry by nick.veez

... 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 Fun and the easy life

A travel blog entry by nick.veez

... then trying to converse in spanish to Josh, in a creepy whisper in your ear kinda way. I don't think he was actually gay but he definitely succeeded in making the meal a little awkward. After the meal he also continued to fill up shots for bobby to drink, in what seemed like an attempt to get him to sleep. All very odd. Once the bill was paid we headed back and caught some much needed sleep ready for the next ...

A week in Retrospect - Outbound

A travel blog entry by nick.veez

... 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 ...

Final days in Javea

A travel blog entry by beakerage


... a reasonable cost. I spent that afternoon booking a bus, train and accommodation for Monday. The accommodation and train were easy, even with the train booking website in Spanish (thank you Word Lens) but the bus booking was a pain in the butt. I tried using the ALSA (Spanish bus company which is part of a bigger British company) app on my phone using the English verson, but it seemed to have a bug and wouldn´t go to the payment page. So then I tried on the website ...

Arrival in Alicante, Spain

A travel blog entry by beakerage


... a lift to pick up the motorcycle (BMW Rockster) he´s borrowing from John. We were both pretty excited to have the bike since it meant we could really explore Javea easily. So after lunch we explored the Arenal beach area which is a tourist area but quite pretty with lots of restaurants. We checked out a restaurant or two for possibilities for dinner and also enquired about snorkelling at a scuba diving place. That night we ate at La Fontana. I ...

    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.

    Great Views, Great Location, Great Service....Just A Great Hotel!


    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.

    Great value and excellent location


    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.

    What a view...


    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

    Avoid the horrible rooms higher up!


    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.
