My partner and I are just back from a 3 night stay at this lovely hotel in the wonderful Spanish town of Altea, which is about 40 mins from airport, either car hire or shuttle would be best to get there. From arrival to departure it has been a wonderful experience. The staff were extremely helpful and attentive from the... More

We stayed in this hotel in 2012 & were very pleased with the overall experience & looked forward to a return visit. Reception area & pool area are still very pleasing but other standards need to be improved. We were very disappointed with the breakfast area both in terms of the room - no air condition working some mornings and... More

This is a wonderful place! The generosity and quality of it´s buildings and installations are breathtaking: everything is luxurious and tasteful, huge public areas, huge outdoor pools under mature palm trees, very specious and well equipped rooms, fantastic bathroom with jacuzzi bathtub and separate shower, very good breakfast, etc. A real gem at a great location!

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. The first room we were shown smelt strongly of drains and the second had a terrible smell of stale smoke. We were so tired we accepted... More

A very comfortable 3 night stay in a sea facing room. Room was spacious with a very large bathroom with both tub and separate shower. Very clean. Bed was petty comfortable. Only small gripe with the room was a tiny tv with the only English channels being news ones. Pool areas are large with lots of loungers - that said,... More

This will have been my fourth time staying at the Villa Gadea hotel and i love it there. This time, we had booked well in advance and gotten a discounted rate on their website. I booked a non-sea view room, as this was a treat at the end of our holidays so funds weren't as plentiful as I'd like! However,... More

We left this hotel this morning after a 3 day stay. It was a perfect end to a wonderful holiday. The accommodation , food and service from the friendly staff was excellent and has left us with a desire to return. It certainly deserves its five stars in my opinion.

The hotel is right on the water and you can get a lovely room with a balcony and sea view. Comfortable king-size beds and views to die for. The prices are reasonable for this kind of property. You'll be impressed from the minute you walk in the door.
