Review by Shelly Jones 18th May 2018
Home now after our 3 night stay at Mont Park and we really enjoyed it there overall.
For us, it does not compare with where we usually stay (Sol Pelicanos), but then, neither did the price we paid, so unfair to compare the two really.
Our room was very clean, if a little tired looking, but a bonus being on the 2nd floor as we didn’t have to wait for the lift, which was quite small. We had a balcony with a pool and partial sea view.
The biggest downside for us, by far, was the fact that we had single beds, which were fixed to the wall unit, with a bedside table in between, so we couldn’t even push them together!
We never used the TV at all, there was no remote and I’d read in other reviews that you have to ask for the remote at reception and pay a deposit, but we just didn’t bother as I understand the channels are mostly Spanish.
Our en-suite had a bath with a shower attachment but it was very powerful and easy to use, so no complaints there.
Shower gel and soap dispensers were provided, but no individual toiletries.
Enough wardrobe and drawer space for a short break, but possibly not for a fortnight though!
Only 2 power sockets in our room and one of those meant unplugging the tv.
Although we were half board, we actually only had breakfast twice, lunch once and dinner once there, as we like to eat out too. It was ok, but not a huge choice, and vegetarians would struggle. The salad selection was lovely and fresh though. In fact all the food looked fresh and well presented, but I’m a very fussy, semi vegetarian, and only ever had salad and potatoes!
For breakfast I had cereal, fresh fruit and yogurt, which was perfect for me. My husband said the cooked breakfast was nice too.
Drinks at the bar were cheap and the pool area was clean with plenty of sun beds. Pool was chilly at first but lovely after the first shock! And in the full sun for most of the day, I think. Certainly for the whole afternoon, when we used it.
Several reviews have mentioned the staff being none too friendly, but we did not experience that at all. They all spoke very good English and were polite, efficient and helpful to us at all times.
The hill up to the hotel was really not too bad! Speaking as an unfit, asthmatic, 62 year old, I didn’t find it an issue! Made me puff a bit, and I wouldn’t be wanting to go any further up the hill than the gates of Mont Park, but I’m sure it must have been doing me good!
The location was very close to the beachfront and only a 5-10 minutes walk to the strip (or a 5.50 Euro taxi fare at 2am, if you can’t face the walk!)
It is a very Spanish hotel, with a lot of Spanish guests, serving food more in keeping with Spanish tastes, but it is in Spain after all! And I fail to see why people find that a negative?
To sum up my very long review (sorry!) – I would stay here again, for 3 or 4 nights, and probably will do, but not for our annual 2 weeks. Purely because of the single beds, to be honest, and the slightly longer walk back from the strip after a long night out!

The Mont Park is very Spanish, but I have stayed there many times over the past 20 years, and found them ok, I just don t like the trek up the hill in the hot weather, and at 73 now, it was ok 20 years ago, xxx

We stayed there three weeks ago. The reception staff were brilliant, couldn’t have been more helpful and friendly. Room was basic but we hardly spent any time in it anyway. Food was good to be honest, just a lack of accompaniments but quality was excellent. Location is excellent, very peaceful, up a little bit of a hill, sea views. I would certainly go again 😍
Stopped here a few times, food ok but if you a single the rooms are small with no balcony and if you are on the top floor the laundry is above you which very noisy, swapped to balcony room great views of Levante front but staff not that friendly
Horrible place….dated shabby rooms and the rudest ignorant staff ever… thank god we were only there for the weekend. Worst place I have ever been!
It’s a nice clean hotel some rooms being refurbished… Nice pool area…. Cheap drinks… Food and guests more Spanish…. I quite like hotel… Staff are nice….no complaints from me…. If you are expecting everything aimed at English… No chance…. More Spanish orientated
