If you are flying into Spain, try to make sure your flight arrives before 15.00h to give yourself time to get to the venue. There are several ways to get to us, here are two options:
1. Beniconnect to Orba:
We can highly recommend that you take advantage of Beniconnect one of the shuttle services serving Alicante airport. You can book and pay approximately 25€ for a direct link from Alicante airport to The Citrus Bar in Orba. You can book it yourself on their web, the destination is Orba, then just put in your flight arrival. All the staff speak English.
For groups we can include a shared pick up from The Citrus Bar in Orba to Solterreno at 17.00hrs on the day of start of the course. Orba to Solterreno is just 15min. in a car or taxi.
Beniconnect Info -
On arrival to the new terminal in Alicante, "El Altet" airport, please make your way out to the main arrival hall and walk straight ahead where you will see on either side of you a lift, to the left there is also an escalator and to the right a staircase all of which will take you down to level – 2 (minus 2). Once down on level -2 you will clearly see the Beni Connect Transfers sign at the reception desk which will be manned by our representatives. Please do not make your way out into the parking bays without first checking in with the representative. They will direct you to the vehicle which will transfer you into resort.
–If you prefer the local bus you need to travel via Benidorm which makes the journey much longer and not that much cheaper. IMPORTANT - If you miss the shared transfer or you arrive earlier and want to make your own way to Solterreno you will need to take a taxi (at your own cost) For details, see information below.
