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 service is never far away.
The food on offer in the restaurant is really fantastic. There is great knowledge at this hotel of local foods, wines and oils. We especially liked trying locally sourced white wines and some fantastic olive oils as well.The fish recommendations are based on the quality of stock procured that day, so menu advice is offered so that you get the freshest, best produce on the plate.
The breakfast on offer was always top quality as well, with fabulous fresh fruit and homemade bread and cakes as well.
We spent a lot of time by the pool sat out on the poolside chairs and enjoyed great poolside service - when you need it. That's the key point of this hotel. You are left to your own devices, to relax and build your stay the way you want it to be. If and when you need something, such as a beer by the pool or a quick bite to eat, then the staff and owners are always around to help out.
When out and about in Altea and the surrounding areas, again the staff and owners at La Serena are very well clued-up about nearby beaches, great places to eat in the town as well as suggestions for day-trips etc.
Overall then, a fantastic hotel to stay at. Great staff, a wonderful balance achieved to how they help guests enjoy their stay, wonderful food and a really cracking set-up with well-designed rooms thoroughly clean throughout and a gorgeous pool to relax next to.
We could not recommend this place any higher, and look forward to calling in again one day.
Thanks to all at La Serena for a great stay at your lovely hotel, saludos y abrazos a todos.
