Our extended family stay here every August as our trip coincides with the local fiesta, culminating in a massive fireworks display. The hotel most definitely deserves it's 5 star rating. The staff welcome us back each year with a smile and we love the large rooms close to the pool. The location is ideal for anyone wanting a quiet getaway,... More

The room itself was gorgeous, the pool is stunning, the staff are lovely, the bar is perfect, the little beach bars just outside the grounds are gorgeous and it is extremely clean. The reason it didn't get five stars is purely down to the breakfast. The room itself was overcrowded, the cooked buffet wasn't fresh, looks like it had been... More

It should be a 4 star hotel... not five. The rooms are fine, but expensive. Is it a hotel to be with kids, not in couple. There's music shows every night, so if you are in a room with views to the sea, you'll be listening those shows. Gym it's too small.

We stayed at the Villa Gadea in late May and first impressions were good. The lobby and reception area was attractive and fairly grand, however, the standard of the rooms was another story altogether.
