“A peaceful retreat !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

What a lovely surprise to win a competicion and the prize being La Plantacion fr a 2 day stay....this Hotel is a lovely location , set in beautiful grounds and a wonderful retreat for a long weekend or longer....away from the normal summer crowds. All the bedrooms are large (ours had a 4 poster bed!) and en suite, have a fridge and coffee making facilities (unusual in Spain) and no hassle if you want eggs and bacon, delivered to your terrace at whatever time you want.
The Restaurant terrace looks down the valley to the coastal town of Villajosa, fabulous food cooked on the BBQ fresh and hot. We loved it. Also a good choice a wines.
Thanks Dean and family for a lovely weekend, we will be back!

Just returned from short stay at this hotel/restaurant.
The positives:
Lovely location with pretty manicured and well cared for gardens;
Nice, well maintained pool area;
Very nice food served in the restaurant with good service and good value;

The negatives:
No hotel facilities during the day until the restaurant opens at 7.30pm, consequently no bar open or food available until 7.30;
No umbrellas around the pool at all, a necessity at this time of year;
Rooms although spotlessly clean, need updating and our room smelt a little dingy as if not used for a while;
Finally, the bizarre breakfast arrangement. There is no breakfast served in the restaurant. Each room is given the day before a tray containing two bottles of juice, sachets of milk and coffee for the machine provided in the room, a small croissant each, a cake each, and some tiny French toast, jam and butter. Even the most basic bed and breakfast establishments do better than this.

Understand fully the successful wedding venue business they appear to have, but as hotel guests felt we were a bit of an afterthought. Sorry not been harsh, just honest.

I have just been to my nephews wedding here. What a amazing time we had. I believe it will be one of the best wedding venues I will ever attend. The building and grounds are outstanding. The staff are on hand all the time just faultless. The food and drinks was excellent we could just not fault this place everything was just bliss. It is a absolutely stunning place. Well worth a visit. So grateful that I got a invite to experience this wonderful venue.

My new husband and I just got married at la plantacion and it was absolutely stunning - an absolutely perfect day. Everything from the beautiful location to the first class food and wine, the flawless service from the bar and waiting staff to the expertise of Dean, the owner, was just faultless.

My husband and I couldn't have asked for more from our day - we were involved in every aspect of the day, from the wonderful food and wine tasting to choosing our flowers and decorations. The personal finishing touches including the flower petal heart on our bed were really lovely.

We would definitely recommend la plantacion to anyone looking for a beautiful, professional and perfect wedding venue on the costa blanca.

Ideal for romantic getaways and relaxing lunches or dinner, breakfast served in the room terrace surrounded by plants and right in front of the pool.

Beautiful bedroom with a very rustic feel but fully equipped.

The owners family are very attentive and make you feel right at home.

The hotel serves also lunch and dinner that can compete with the best of restaurants serving local game and wines and the service is excellent.

Highly recommended for couples but they also have children and events areas.

Room Tip: The honeymoon suite is worth the extra money.

We stayed here for a weekend to celebrate our Anniversary. We booked the suite which has a beautiful 4 poster bed. Owners bought us a free bottle of champagne and also arranged flowers at my request. When we arrived we were very impressed by the lush, tropical gardens. 7 rooms in total, all on ground floor with large terraces overlooking pool/gardens. Room has small fridge, kettle, hair dryer, aircon/heating. Shower not fab-like a jet wash. Breakfast of hot rolls, croissants, toast, juices & tea/coffee delivered to room. Good for animal lovers as owners have several cats/dogs. Beautiful views of mountains/distant sea. Plenty of parking. 15 mins from Benidorm. Would highly recommend and definitely returning soon! :)
