I had a great time in La Serena, can only recommend it if you're staying some nights in town. Especially the staff is very friendly and helpful, they speak many languages and are always approachable. Keep on the good work!

Hotel La Serena is a very charming hotel located at the edge of the old town in Altea. It's a small hotel with only ten rooms. Rustic but modern. The room we stayed in was a bit special in that the shower and was in the room itself, not a seperate room. For us this just added to the charm,... More

It is not often that you walk through the door of a hotel and know that you are going to be happy with everything they offer you. Instantly, we warmed to the feel of this small and fantastically located accommodation and we were surprised by the quality and creativity of the exciting blend of materials used. The owners were pleasant... More

Great in town location. Beautiful and spacious rooms. quiet. Not a lot of options for breakfast but a spacious and open dining area. Small hotel, cozy, but spare decor (which I like). Parking is difficult.

We stayed 2 nights and it was wonderful. One of the rooms had a problem with the air conditioning and the staff changed one couple to another room with no fuss. The internal architecture is a treat. The upstairs terrace had a great view over rooftops to the sea and was a wonderful place to watch the sun go down.... More

We stayed here for 6 nights and found La Serena to be the ideal getaway for a relaxing break. This is a tremendous hotel experience. A relaxed and informal atmosphere throughout, from check-in to check-out, means that you get to enjoy the wonderful rooms, take in the views and the gorgeous poolside setting undisturbed. That said, help and top quality... More

Upon arrival very casual greeting from staff and this atmosphere continued through the stay. Any request was immediately and effectively dealt with, but the staff stay out of your way and will not disturb you. Feels like staying at a friends house with maid service as needed. Minor maintenance issues indicate a need to freshen the facilities, however none of... More

The hotel is in a great location and looks very stylish, however like a good handful of the other reviewers, found the hotel and service lacking. The welcome was poor - on arrival we were simply handed a key. For half of our stay there was no hot water and the air conditioning in our room was not working. The... More

We have just returned from a very relaxing break at La Serena. The hotel is in a lovely quiet position and is near the old town and the beach. The old town comes to life at night and is a great people watching place. Food at La Serena was superb and highly recommended.
