We found this Etap a great budget option for our weekend away. Not the best Etap we've stayed in (that was the one at Bordeaux airport) but certainly value for money if you are watching your budget.
Lying on the outskirts of Alicante, along the main coastal road from the airport, the C6 buses literally pass the door. The drawback was that this airport bus stopped at the side of the road, a few hundred metres from the hotel, at Agua Amarga. One small section of the walk is very narrow (see photo) but lights, at the hotel junction, stop traffic giving ample time to pass. Walk took us no more than 5 mins.
No. 27 TAM bus - Alicante to Urbanova - did stop outside the hotel hourly and again on its way back. Plus a number 3 Baile bus, to Santa Pola, was very useful. Timetables of both I will put on transport tips.
Unique Quality: First time we had a sea view without paying more for it!
Etap is right next to Ibis and Holiday Inn Express Hotels who both make evening meals.
Price was per room
We paid 35 euro each night.
