I Stayed at the Flor Da Laranja with my girlfriend for a week from the 17/9/12.
The Weather was perfect 28-30 degrees everyday and it hadn't rained since October 2011.
We stayed in the apartment adjacent to the owners House & were pleasantly suprised by the size of the apartment.
We Had a medium sized bedroom, Large kitchen, Large Living room & a Medium sized Bathroom with shower.
The kitchen has everything you could need (Blender,coffee making machine,Bottle openers,Microwave, Fridge, Cooker etc . .)
There are also 4 bbqs on-site which can be used free of charge with free charcoal.
They even had satelite tv with around 10 English channels ( Sports & Movies & News )
The hotel is quite a distance from anything ( Beach, Strip in albufera , Restaurants ) You 100% need to have a car to get around easily . . . The owner (Gentille) however was very helpful as we didn't have a car and drove us where we wanted to go everyday ( we Gave her a small tip each time for petrol )
The grounds the hotel are set on are very neat & tidy & spotlessly clean. More of a tropical feel to the place than mediteranian as there are bannana trees, pomengranite trees, olive trees, Lemon trees & Scorching weather .. .. ..
They have 2 small pools & 1 kids pool which are very clean but quite cold . . . Always plenty of beds To lay on & also Theres a pool table , playing cards & fusball tables.
The owners also have 2 dogs which live onsite Blancy & charlie both are very friendly & good fun.
There is a place called villamora which is a posh area on the marina which is nice if you want to go for a nice meal & champagne or cocktails ( Fairly quiet - 15 Mins drive from Hotel )
There is also another place called The Albufera strip which is alot more lively if you want to go out & Have a dance to some loud music @ a cheaper price. There are also a few restaurants along this strip & some places to shop.
These are really the only two places to go in the evening with a bit of atmosphere.
The local beach i think is called olus d'agua ( 10 Mins Drive ) You can walk from this beach and climb through the cliffs ( Quite safely ) all the way down to villamora beach.
The owners are two of the nicest people you will ever Meet & are probably the reason why people have been going back there for over 20 years!!!
I would definatley return to this hotel & I am already looking at next years Prices
