Very close to the airport of Alicante, there is Elche, a city not usually chosen by foreign tourists but that actually has some interesting places to see. If one day you go there and you are looking for a nice, comfortable and very convenient place to sleep, don’t hesitate to choose Huerto del Cura.
I’ve been there twice (one for work, one for pleasure) and twice I was surprised by the atmosphere of this place. Located in the center of the city, once you cross the big door of the hotel entrance, you totally forget where you are. Yes, you are in the middle of the city, but it’s like being transported to a different place, to a real oasis surrounded by palm trees and silence. I don’t know how they do it, but the noise of the street doesn’t arrive to the hotel.
The Hotel Huerto del Cura it’s not like the most of the hotels in Spain, usually designed as big and tall buildings with a place for a garden or swimming pool. On the contrary, Huerto del Cura has a big garden with small little houses where the rooms are. It has some similarities with some beach hotels in Caribe, but Huerto del Cura is actually a urban hotel and that, in my opinion, makes it even more special.
Because of its location, Huerto del Cura is a perfect place to enjoy the city of Elche but, at the same time, because of its atmosphere, tropical outdoor swimming pool and spa services the hotel is also a place to relax.
The prices of the rooms are between 110€ for a double standard room, and 150€ for a triple room (three adults or two adults and a kid). For a bit more money you can have breakfast at the hotel, something I do recommend because you will enjoy a variety of local products as natural orange juice, dates (dátiles), serrano ham, churros… A delicious way to start the day!
