Second year in a row that we book this hotel. Great atmosphere, fantastic swimming pool, great spa. The breakfast buffet is more than fulfilling our high expectations. Only bad point is the free Wi-Fi, routers are not strong enough to reach all the rooms, we had no connection in our room.

We never usually stay in the samed place twice. But because this hotel ticks all the boxes we booked again. We spent four days here during May. The hotel was not busy which was great for us. The pool area was quiet as there were not a lot of guests at this time. We stayed on the third floor with... More

Great hotel well worth the visit, staff very helpful couldn't do enough for you. Great surroundings and very clean. Only thing I recommend is that there were more things to do in the evening as only one bar. Nice restaurants with great food. Parking is easy.

Excellent hotel, nice big and clean rooms. Great locations right on the water and friendly staff. However, except from the reception staff, most other employees only speak Spanish, which made it a little difficult to communicate. I guess it has its charm. And then again, I could learn to speak Spanish, it is afterall the most widespread language in the... More

We stayed at three SH hotels in the area - Villa Gadea, Altea Hills and the one in Calpe. SH knows the hotel business and do everything possible to make their guests happy. Villa Gadea is exemplary in terms of location, rooms, staff and cleanliness. It's next to the beach but visitors need to know that the beach is rocky... More

Stayed overnight on our way home after a few days away at another 5 star hotel which was not up to standard. The Villa Gadea is definitely 5 Star.
