CALPE is pretty much an ideal destination with just about everything dancers would expect for a relaxing January holiday.

Primarily, a flat level resort ( unless you want to climb the rock!?)
A very easy and pleasant stroll along the esplanade to the old town, with plenty of coffee shops and restaurants on the way.
Bus/land train with local destinations in the surrounding area stops right outside the hotel.
Train from the station on the edge of Calpe gives easy access to other nearby ‘quality’ towns of Altea, and Moraira, ….and also well chosen areas of Benidorm are worth a day trip. Denia and Xabia by train are also regular choices of previous guests.

The 4* Diamante Beach Hotel (built only twelve years ago ) is a grand and immediately comfortable hotel from which we have been been offering two holidays every year for the last ten years

The rooms (primarily twins ) are extremely spacious and all have balconies and the bathrooms are pristine.
The restaurant is light and airy, the food is self service buffet style with a wide choice at breakfast and dinner. The staff in this restaurant are extremely friendly and helpful.
An underground SPA for which your holiday includes two visits, is a haven of warmth and tranquility, with every style of shower you could imagine, a sauna, steam room, cold plunge, choice of jacuzzi’s plus a fine pool which also offers soothing and relaxing underwater jets that massage those aches and pains. The poolside also offer an array of powerful water hoses, cascading walls of warm water, beds and seating from which to close your eyes and relax in the shimmering low level lighting. Truly a wonderful experience and not to be missed.
In addition there is a gym and if the weather is warm, the external swimming pool is very pleasant
Immediately opposite the hotel there are two well stocked supermarkets and the hotel has no objection to guests using their room fridges for personal food and drink items. Adjacent to one of the supermarkets, there is a fresh chicken rotisserie on the corner that serves delicious hot chicken… Ideal for a light lunch on your balcony as you watch the rest of the world go by.
It is true to say our previous guests have been genuinely surprised and delighted at the quality and immediate facilities and surroundings of theDiamante Beach Hotel

The esplanade and sea front in CALPE is only two minutes walk from the hotel and has none of the high rises as in Benidorm.

A stroll along the seafront brings you to the famous CALPE Rock and immediately adjacent, before you stroll a similar distance into the old town, you will find the lovely harbour, again with many pleasant shops, restaurants and coffee stops….
Also, there is usually a very popular market every week
