Calpe the resort is 60 mins by car and 75 mins by coach from Alicante Airport, and as you can see from the photographs it’s nothing like its neighbour Benidorm, 30 mins drive away. The backdrop to this beautiful resort is stunning and if the weather’s kind you could not find a more pleasant resort to while away your leisure hours.

Diamante Beach Ballroom
Offering by far the largest flooor in the Costa Blanca, the tall-ceilinged Diamante Beach ballroom is Calpe’s premier venue for large scale events, capable of accommodating 400 dancers quite easily. The floor is laminate very similar to our popular Durrant House floor and our continental dancers just love the acoustics in this lovely ballroom. The ballroom can be divided in half when numbers necessitate and is conveniently located within the hotel close to its main dining room.
Buffet restaurant with show cooking, a la carte Italian restaurant, cafeteria, lobby bar, outdoor pool & sun lounging area, health spa (see below) and occasional evening entertainment.
Just a note to say a big thank you Paul and Carole for arranging such a fabulous dancing break in Calpe. Weather Fantastic for January and Diamante Beach Hotel Excellent and the Food perfect something for everyone. We made so many new friends too. Transfers to and from Hotel all arranged perfectly. We will certainly think about doing it again next year. Pat & Dennis 2018
Just a thank-you note to say how much we enjoyed the break in Calpe. We would do it again, and perhaps hire a car so we can get a bit further afield. There was just enough organisation to get us to the right place at the right time! Hotel was great and the bunch of fellow dancers were a friendly crowd with a good spread of abilities.
We would like to thank Paul and Carole for making our dance break in Calpe such a great experience, you are great hosts ensuring all are made to feel welcome. We learnt a few new dances, including some inline, loved the american smooth Carole, made lots of new dance friends. It was such a wonderful break. Hotel is good, a lovely spa , with two free entries per person. Weather good enough to get out and about. Perfect way to unwind after the Christmas madness. Anyone looking for a great gift for someone, book this holiday. Holiday entitlement allowing, we will be back next year Kathy and Kevin Dabbs 2017
Thank you for all your hard work in making our holiday stress free and extremely enjoyable. We are very much looking forward to our next holiday with you and would wholeheartedly recommend Dancebreaks. Georgina & Ed 2017 (Calpe Winter Break)
Just a note to say “thank you” for making the Calpe holiday so relaxing and enjoyable. We enjoyed every minute of it, the dancing, the hotel, the beautiful area of Calpe and its surroundings, but most of all – the company! You created a lovely atmosphere that enabled people to mix easily and most of all – you cared. We will most definitely be “banging the drum” for you! The brochure is out as we speak and hopefully we can convince people that it is not about being a “competition dancer” (that seems to be the thing that most people worry about). Gook luck with all your venues, and do try to get a day off!

Hotel Diamante Beach & Calpe
The Costa Blanca is renowned for its year-round sunshine and expansive sandy beaches. Moreover Calpe, where this unique holiday is based, is an attractive unspoilt resort, benefitting from a spectacular mountain backdrop, building controls (very few tall buildings) and the fact that it houses two protected nature reserves.
The resort area of the town is totally flat and features two beautiful beaches, a delightful esplanade and many bars and restaurants. The old town sits on a hilltop just behind the resort and comprises a fascinating little warren of historic alleyways and squares, several of which have been recently restored.
The 4-star Hotel Diamante Beach is located close to the sea in the resort area and is the highly impressive, recently constructed flagship of the town’s leading hotel chain. Apart from the delightfully chic modern decor of its bedrooms, the Hotel Diamante Beach is also notable for the excellence of its 2000m² health spa and the unusually large dimensions of its ballroom.

“Dear Paul and Carole,
Just a few lines to say how much we enjoyed Calpe and the dance, the venue, company and your music were great.
For our part we did more walking during the daytime than we have ever done on any other holiday. Calpe and the coastal walks were so enticing…” – Tanis and Barry about the break in May 2013.
