“Superb B&B with breath taking views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

Myself my husband and our 2 teenage daughters were lucky enough to stay at Los Rayos Del Sol on 26th July 2013 for one night. Tim and Sue Norton are so accomodating, friendly and really made our stay very special. Sue made us lunch on 26th and 27th and also an 3 course evening meal on 26th. The food was great. Our room had double doors out to the pool area and was very comfortable. The views from the pool area are breath taking. A real hidden gem!

We have just arrived home from a weeks holiday at Los RaDel Sol and to be perfectly honest we cannot fault it. We are a family with 2 boys aged 11 and 12. Tim and Sue were absolutey wonderful they could'nt do enough for us. The rooms were spotless and the breakfast was lovely especially Sue's home made jam Mmmmm second to none as were the views which were stunning. Even the kids were chilled by the end of the holiday lol. All in all we had a brilliant holiday and would highly reccomend it to anyone. Thanks Tim and Sue your the best.

Room Tip: Room 2 has an ajoining door ideal for those with children and has patio doors leading staight out to...

We spent one overnight stay in this B & B with its 360° panoramic views. The room was clean and tidy, and we had a good nights sleep. There is a small fridge in the room, and another communal fridge outside, where you could purchase reasonably priced stocked items.
The location was ideal for our short trip around this part of Costa Blanca, and would definitely recommend it.
Tim and Sue were very friendly.

What a fantastic place Tim and Sue's B&B was. Ideally located just outside Altea, and with the most stunning views from the top of the hillside, looking to the sea to the front and to the mountains from the poolside at the rear. The accommodation was very clean and well appointed, Sue and Tim were very friendly, hospitable and catered for our every need.
A very welcoming, enjoyable and relaxing stay.

What a wonderful place to stay!! Coming to Tim and Sues b&b was a wonderful experience, and did we ever regret that we had not booked for more than one night! The location of this b&b is good for your heart, soul and mind, you have a 360 degree view of the mountains and ocean. I do believe I could have stayed here forever. The rooms were delicate, very clean, and the breakfast very good. Tim and Sue were also very friendly and descrete and made tihs stay something we will remember for a long time and reccomend to everybody heading to this area of Spain.

We spent 4 nights and 5 days at this wonderful B&B.
We were travelling with 3 children, 5, 11 and 13 and everyone enjoyed their stay. The rooms were very clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. There were even 2 types of pillows, feather or tempura ( I think!),so that you could choose soft or firmer. This is an indication of Sue and Tim´s concept, they really try to think of everything.
They have a double room with french doors on to the patio with an adjoining twin/ triple room which was great for us.
The breakfast which was continental was amazing. Worth a special mention are the freshly squeezed orange juice (not limited to one glass as we´ve experienced other places), croissant and home made jam. The children were very happy with the choice of cereals, fresh fruit and nutella!
We also had our evening meal, a BBQ, on the evening we arrived. Once again, there was something for everyone, so that both the adults and children left the table very satisfied.

Sue and Tim were the perfect hosts. As Spanish speakers they had a good knowledge of Spanish culture as well as the local area. They were helpful, kind and very patient with children and adults alike.
We would without doubt visit Los Rayos Del Sol again.

Room Tip: The double with doors out to the patio was amazing.

Stayed in August clean basic rooms think the rooms look better on the pictures than they were.
The rooms are under owners accommodation and the first morning it was noisy like furniture being moved early on and as we were told breakfast was between 9 and 9.30am so would like to have had a long lie.
The pool area was lovely with great views.
Breakfast was continental nice and lovely area to view the scenery

We are sorry if you were disturbed by noise above you, we generally lay tables up and move furniture the night before to minimise noise. It may well have been guests moving around getting their breakfast's. Just as an advisory note Breakfast is served between 9am and 10am, earlier or later by prior arrangment. This and other information is in a folder in each room. Thank you for your review.
