Final full day in Alicante region. A nice relaxed start to the day with a visit to Benidoleig municipal swimming pool, which was modern and had a sort of garden area with trees for shade. Ali, Sue and I spent a couple of hours there topping up our tans then we all drove South to Calpe for a seafood lunch. Calpe is a largish town with some pretty beaches a lots of high rise ...
... time via the road that kept us close to the beachfront, which took a bit longer but allowed us to take in the sights. It was pretty windy on the beach so we were all gently exfoliated by the fine, wind-blown sand in a pleasant way; the wind keeping us a bit cooler in the blazing heat. A simple picnic kept us going and late in the afternoon, slightly battling the wind, we packed up and made for home. After freshening up we took a drive through the local mountains, via ...
... but a beach they love) near Playa Santa Ana, close to Les Deveses. We armed ourselves with a variety of beach furniture and made camp on the totally uncrowded sands, with sand dunes and cactus as a backdrop, and were soon cooling off in the shallow Mediterranean water. Then broke out the picnic prior to doing some intense sun bathing. Ian and I played frisbee just on the ...
... range into the next, with the last of the snow still clinging to the highest peaks. These dramatic ranges were broken from time to time by large plains and arid stretches of landscape. We still marvelled at the white washed villages and the old forts that sit atop so many of the hills. We were so pleased that we had the freedom of a vehicle which enabled us to enjoy it.

Best place to stay
This Hotel is rated as a 2*, I usually stay in 4* and have to say the Hotel is EXCELLENT. The service, hygene and food are better than some 4* Hotels I have stayed in. Would have no hesitation in returning to the Rio Park, Benidorm THe Jamieson Family
food and accomondation was great, already booked for next year, cant wait for return.
My husband and stayed at the Rio park Hotel for a week. Rooms basic but very clean, maids cleaned the room every day. The food was fantastic, there was a wide variation, I read of bad reports of the food, all I can say these people who made these remarks must have been really picky eaters. There are plenty of sunbeds you really don't have to put your towel out at 6am in the morning "only if you want a poolside view". All the staff are very helpful. GOOD VALUE FOR YOUR MONEY 2* HOTEL MORE LIKE A 3* We hope to go back for Christmas, if not we are definately going back next year.
The Rio Park is a two star on paper only. The service from all staff was exceptional and the hotel was well presented.the food was of A class standard With a large pool ,sun terrace and outdoor bar as well as two bars inside the hotel you every need was met. Highly reccomended
Wonderful friendly hotel
we were that impressed we are going back this year for two weeks, the food was A1 the staff were Brilliant and the location is just right, this hotel caters for everyone.
Me and my boyfriend recently stayed at the Rio Park and we thought it was a reasonably good hotel. The room was clean and we had a good view from the balcony. However, we went half board but spent most of the time eating out becuase the food was not very good. The waiter and reception service was very friendly.
