Great boutique hotel. Staff very friendly, but not enough of them! Close to everything. Restaurant is amazing. Couple if small niggles made it short of 5 stars. Air conditioning in room is terrible, some of the fixtures are poor quality and although not the hotels fault at all, too many young children making it less than peaceful by the pool!

Stayed here for one Night a couple of Years ago on a business trip. This small boutique hotel up the hill, close to the Cathedral of Altea, was very cosy along with a friendly staff. The Breakfast was served outside by the pool with a personal touch of service. I'll be back😊

La Serena is a modern well-appointed boutique hotel in the village of Altea with 10 rooms and a charming terrace commanding views of the village and terraces bellow strewn with cascades of pretty bougainvilleas in bloom and the sea beyond. We visited in late April, at the time of the re-launch of the restaurant, which has been taken in hand... More

We went to La Serena to celebrate a friend's birthday. The food was bland, lacklustre and far from Michelin star quality. In fact if it's that easy to get a star, I'm sticking one on my front door. Because I know my cooking is better than that. And the waitress arguing over a €5 discrepancy on the bill, is just... More

It is very clear the intention of this ladies to offend us, unfortunatly this behaviors sometimes happend. An advise: Next time that you all go together to a restaurant, please, put your tag name in each bottle of wine you drink, that way you will not have an argument with your own friend. And also, ask the restaurant staff to... More

This was our second stay. The hotel has a family feel which means that whilst it lacks the regulated processes of a large chain, the staff and owner are approachable and responsive to requests. The location is good, if you like the old town and this undoubtedly contributes to some of the hotel's cost. On both visits we have had... More

A very comfortable hotel, imaginatively and tastefully designed. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Breakfasts are excellent, and particularly enjoyable on the patio. The location is good - in a pretty, old part of the town a few minutes walk from shops and the seafront, but very peaceful, with no noise at all during the night.

The team help you when you need it. The room was perfect and the location also. Lovely, in the old quarter of the city and next to the sea. The breakfast is very good. The price is a little high but you know why you pay. I highly recommend this hotel.

We found this through Alistair Sawdays Special Places to stay. We liked the fact that it was small (10 rooms), quietly located in the old town, and had a "slow food" restaurant. Sadly they had made the decision to close the restaurant earlier this year, which for us was a real shame. The other restaurant in town recommended by the... More

Lovely, small, boutique hotel on a cute street in the middle of Altea. Probably more of an adults only hotel but we took a 4 month old and they went out of their way to find a travel cot. The staff were very friendly and helpful and we often saw them baking the breakfast bread and cakes. The only negative... More
