“Romantic and Perfect!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

Our stay at Hotel Abaco was more than perfect. Thomas and Adelina are amazing hosts, they ensure every detail is always beautifully taken care of. The rooms are gorgeous, the lobby is adorable, and the breakfast is lovely. My husband brought me here on a surprise to propose. After visiting every hotel in Altea he chose Abaco because it is by far the most unique and romantic. We were given Cava and chocolate dipped strawberries upon arrival, candles were lit every night, we had breakfast in bed, and amazing dinner recommendations. We loved Abaco and Altea so much we decided to stay an extra week and get married on the beach! We can't thank Thomas and Adelina enough for an unforgettable stay in Altea :)

Warm welcome and great stay in Abaco Inn
Adelina and Thomas couldn't be any more helpful with excellent recommendations on where to eat, things to do and places to see in the area. The rooms are beautiful, also the breakfast area with chairs and a real fire.
The extras like a glass of Cava or the coffee and home baked cakes made the stay special

What can one say only excellent, greeted by Adelina and Thomas with glasses of CAVA and thomas's cakes. Stay in the Moulin Rouge room which we both thought was beautiful. Beautiful service by a 6 star couple and nothing was to much bother. Forgot about the excellent chocolate strawberries

BRAVO to Thomas and Adelina

see you again some day

A sweet place and a sweet couple! We stayed three nights with Adelina and Thomas, and the experience was special from the very first moment. We were greeted with some nice bubbly and delicious chocolate covered strawberries. Our hosts took great care of us, made wonderful restaurant and beach recommendations, and made us feel very much at home. We stayed in the Moulin Rouge room. It, as well as the entire place, was comfortable, spotless, and beautiful. I hope to get back in the area someday, and if I'm ever near the Abaco Inn in the future, I will definitely stay there again.

Stayed for 2 nights in the "Havana" room. It was pure luxury with great attention to detail. Adelina & Thomas were the perfect hosts who could not do more for you to make you feel special. The welcome that you received upon arrival was second to none. Their knowledge of the area as regards to eating out was excellent. Loved the area and will definitely return in the future, and have no qualms about recommending to others.

Abaco Inn is a wonderful find in the heart of the old town of Altea. The hotel is full of old world charm. We stayed in the Caesar room and it was excellent, very spacious and luxurious. The welcome we received was great and champagne and chocolate strawberries on arrival was a lovely touch. The hosts Adelina and Thomas as well as the staff were all very helpful. Would recommend Abaco to anyone to go and stay in, it was a lovely treat .
