The Valenciana region
Alicante is an ancient city with many modern facilites and attractions. Alicante marina has many restaurants and bars to suit all tastes and is home to numerous yachts and motor cruisers. It has a modern shopping area housing many designer goods.
A stroll along the Esplanade is well worth a try, if only to observe the locals enjoying the concerts held there and to enjoy the market stalls which are open in the evenings.
About 40 minutes to the north is Benidorm, home to the skyrise hotels and also to TerraMitica and Terra Natura theme parks and to Mundomar sealife centre and Aqualandia waterpark. A futher 40 minutes drive will take you to the cosmopolitan city of Valencia.
To the south, again about 40 minutes, is Torrevieja, well known for it's large ex-pat community and building sites. It is worth a visit though to sample the seafront restaurants and coffee bars!
There are also the nature reserves around the salt lakes at Torrevieja and Santa Pola and at El Clot, on the outskirts of Gran Alacant itself.
Gran Alacant is an up and coming area - it is well served by bars and restaurants of many nationalities.
There is a local market held on a Thursday, Spanish and English supermarkets , and a good range of other shops, a pharmacy, clinic (inc. doctor and dentist), tourist information centre, banks (with cash dispensers) and bakers.
A few minutes by car takes you to a large shopping centre with yet more shops, restaurants and bars and the local bus takes you to the beach at Arenales (Carabassi) and further afield Santa Pola where there is a more shopping and a marina.
There is a regular and cheap bus service to both Santa Pola and Alicante. Look out for a small road train which travels around Gran Alacant. It runs every hour in the summer from 9am to midnight (less siesta time) and goes from the Commercial Centre to the Lighthouse then to Carabassi Beach.

"Fabulous apartment and great landlords."
This apartment was fantastic for the price. It had everything we needed and there where local shops and bars etc. Once we got our bearings, we found easy bus routes into Alicante and the locals were v… More
Glad to know you had a good time, it is a lovely central location. Although it is a quiet area, in 10 years we have not had any problems with the neighbours. Sorry to hear you had an issue with this. We have often sat outside into the wee hours without complaint.

"Perfect for Pool and Beach holiday"
Very pleased with this apartment. We only needed somewhere for 5 days and this place ticked all the boxes. Great spot just metres from the pool. Pool was lovely and there was a nice grass area for sunbathing. There were only 2 of us but could have fit 6 in although 4 would be ideal as not a massive place. Air con in the living room was an added bonus. The buses and road train are opposite the complex and perfect for getting to the beach or the busier Centro Commercial centre.

Just returned from a great week. Have not been here for the last 6 years some things had changed but we all still had a great time, place clean and well maintained, the only thing i would have like would have been a clock, was also hard to find somehow to get into Altomar 2 as they are now putting gates everywhere. Will go again.

"Good holiday for very little cost - relaxing"
Had a really relaxing holiday with superb weather and met some nice people. 100 yards from bars and restaurants and the touist train takes you to lots more. Supermarket 5 mins walk and the pool is less than 10 yards away. Decebt size TV with the British channels for those nights in, having said that sitting on the balcony beats watching TV.

We stayed at this premises from the past 5 years on a golfing holiday.The apartment is very central for golfers wishing to play at different courses. It is very clean with a lovely pool in front. All local shops & bars nearby. Very quite area. Lovely beaches nearby & a land train can for a couple of euros can take you to the bigger shopping area. If you want a relaxing holiday with a pool in front of your door step this is an ideal place to holiday.

stayed at this property in June this year and had a wonderful time, we were lucky enough to meet the owner Mike when we got there who straight away offered us a cold drink even though he was preparing to leave for the airport. the lady who looks after this property for Mike is also very helpful and you can always call on her if you have a problem. They have a great system in place whereby they leave sugar, tea, coffee, milk, water and whatever happens to be in the cupboard which you can use and just replace before you leave. this means you can at least have a cup of tea or coffee on arrival and until you find your bearings and get to know where shops and such are, excellent idea. would definitely stay there again.

"Lovely apartment in a great location"
Booked this for a family get together 10 minutes away as we were surprising someone for their 50th birthday. The apartment was excellent, lovely dining/living room with two good size bedrooms and a big bathroom. The kitchen was nice and their were basics such as tea, coffee, sugar, milk, etc already in place. You replaced what you used which I thought was a great little touch.
There's a good size front patio with a table and chairs for outside dining and the communal pool is literally across the road. The pool is great, lots of room for everyone and a big area for sun bathing, relaxing, etc. The general area around it is good, there's a small row of shops and bars two minutes away and the main part of town is only five or 10 minutes on the bus which stops outside the nearby shops and are very regular.
We had a short but great time at this apartment and would definitely recommend it to anyone who's thinking of staying in the area.
