Lovely place

At first, we didn't notice any other English-speaking holiday makers and thought it was quiet place for the more mature holiday maker, but a couple of days in we found a Mexican restaurant in the city centre, the meal was lovely and then the waiter brought us 2 free cocktails and 3 free shots of tequila without us asking for them. The next day we were looking for a club, couldn't find the one we wanted but then we found a complex of bars/restaurants and clubs at the harbour. It was very busy and fun, and we did lots of dancing. A couple of days later we went back for a quiet cocktail and ended up making friends with some of the locals and dancing around in the coyote ugly bar after it had closed-which was playing indie/rock/60s music. There is a row of restaurants right by a market that you can go to if you don't fancy going into the city.

The best thing about my stay was ...

Variety of shops, restaurants, bars, clubs. Nice beach.

Lovely city - a great break

We found Alicante to be a beautiful place. It's actually much larger than we had imagined but really lovely. While we were there we visited other towns on the Costa Blanca - Villajoyosa and Elda. Villajoyosa was well worth the time taken and we visited the Valor chocalate factory which was great. Elda is not quite as pretty as Villajoyosa but was enjoyable none the less. We did find that the bars were closing early - perhaps this was becaus it was late in the year (third week of October). Because a lot of Spanish people holdiay in Alicante it's quite difficult to find restaurants serving a good variety of food. The majority are tapas bars and if this is not your cup of tea you have to wander to find something more international.

The best thing about my stay was ...

The beautiful promenade - it contains six million tiles!!!

Alicante Harbour November

Very Clean, Very lively with a great selection of eating choices. Highly recommended and with good options for accommodation on the beach. Will definitely go back. All places reasonably priced and a meal for 3 with drinks (steaks) will set you back around 45 Euros.

Alicante - a cosmopolitan place with a good atmosphere.

The week before Easter has all the processions at night which EVERYONE comes into the streets for. WHAT an atmosphere - really friendly, cafes and restaurants open until well after midnight - certainly don't get that in England.

The best thing about my stay was ...

Cafe/restaurant culture.

Alicante is beautiful, everday you find some hidden place you hadn't seen before!

The city itself is a mixture between old, seminew and new architectures, which make it a city of contrasts. If you don't climb all the little streets up to the 'casco antiguo' (the ancient borough) you will think it's all about big and high buildings and some skyscaper. But if you go up there, you'll be facing the true soul of Spanish people, making siesta outside their doors, and starting to chat with everybody passes by, just out of curiosity. The beach just at the end of the main roads (Playa del Postiguet) is ok but a bit too crowded, but coming from a coastal area myself I'm probably not the best reviewer for a beach. For a quiter beach and a much more beautiful water, we headed to the village of El Campello, which is really worth a visit.

The best thing about my stay was ...

The climate and the friendliness of the people, together with the food, are certainly the best things there!

WONDERFUL CITY, BEAUTIFUL BEACHES AND ARCHITECTURE A SAFE PLACE TO BE

WHAT WE HAVE DISCOVERED ABOUT ALICANTE IS THE CONVENIENCE OF THE PUBLIC TRANSPORT LINKS TO ALL PARTS OF THE REGION AND BEYOND. BEING TRAVELLERS OF RETIREMENT AGE AND HAVING THE WIFE NOT BEING ABLE TO HANDLE MY DRIVING ON THE MOTORWAY NETWORK IN SPAIN WE FIND THAT WHETHER WE ARE GOING SOUTH TO THE COSTA CALIDA OR NORTH TO DENIA OR EVEN VALENCIA THERE ARE EXCELLENT TRANSPORT SYSTEMS IN PLACE TOGET YOU TO YOUR FINAL DESTINATION ON THE COSTAS. THE NARROW GAUGE RAILWAY WILL TAKE YOU TO DENIA WITH STOPS ALONG THE WAY AT MANY PICTURESQUE PLACES. ALICANTE CITY ITSLF IS FULL OF HISTORICAL INTEREST. THE CASTILLO DE SANTA BARBARA IS A GOOD PLACE TO START AND HAVE A BIRDS EYE VIEW OF THE CITY. IT HAS AN IMPREESIVE MARINA AND PROMENADE WITH QUALITY RESUARANTS AND BARS FOR WHAT SEEMS LIKE MILES. LOCAL TRAIN AND BUS ROUTES TAKE YOU TO ANY PART OFTHE CITY AND IF YOU CARE TO VENTURE DOWN THE ODD ALLEY OR TWO YOU'LL FIND A TAPAS BAR OR FISH RESTUARANT FOR LESS MONEY THAT FRONTLINE ESTABLISHMENTS

The best thing about my stay was ...

ITS CONVENIENCE TO THE REST OF THE REGION BY PUBLIC TRANSPORT AND
