Old Town is one of the best neighborhoods to stay in Alicante, especially if it's your first time here because it is extremely tourist-friendly. If you want to be close to everything pick out a place in Alipark or El Campello if you’re traveling with family. If you’re with a party crowd, however, book a place in Benidorm. The best budget options can be found in and around Elche.
