The hotel is on the outskirts of Altea. It is a beautiful hotel, the food is excellent and the staff are wonderful. The hotel is spotlessly clean. The staff are all very welcoming and always willing to help in any way they can. The majority of the people holidaying at the hotel are Spanish, which was lovely. I would recommend... More

Visited again with the family, and a wonderful time had by all. The staff at this hotel go out of there way to make your stay as welcoming as possible, especially Attic and Jose in the lounge bar.

We had a room towards the right of the hotel as you look at the front which was nice as it was quiet. The room was very spacious and clean.

We traveled with an 11 year old child, and this hotel was great for two nights. Three pools and many kids made for an exceptional holiday for our daughter. If my husband and I were alone, I am not sure I would stay here because of all the children. The room was large, clean and with standard furniture. It was... More

This was the third time we have stayed here and have enjoyed our stay very much.Excellent hotel with young children as the swimming pool is so safe and the breakfast has everything one would want. Hotel staff very friendly and efficient . The beach is also very accessible from the hotel and close to a golf course.
