Hans & Jolanda are great people and understand hospitality service perfectly. We have felt comfortable from arrival to departure, or actually before arrival until after departure. We were here for cycling training camp, a perfect location, safe roads and ample routes and other cyclists. Last years we stayed in Calpe a few km’s away, but this was much better. Personal service, felt at home, better/safer roads to start and finish. Verbeterpunt(en) It was perfect, do not change anything please!

We have had a lovely 3 night stay at this beautiful b&b; from the moment we arrived we were made to feel very welcome by the hosts Hans and Jolanda. They worked so hard to make sure everything was perfect for us, even taking us to the wedding we were attending so as to avoid any issues with a taxi on such an important day. On our last day we were leaving very early and they made sure we had something for breakfast before we set off. The setting is so beautiful with two pools to cool off in and lovely seating areas to relax in. The views are beautiful too. The breakfast was very good, everything you could ask for was available such as granola, yoghurt, ham, cheese, eggs, toast, pastries, fresh juice and fantastic coffee. There is also water, soft drinks and wine etc available all day and evening for a small charge ('honesty bar') which is very useful! Just a short walk away is a very lovely restaurant 'La Selena' (300m) where we ate in the evening twice and my boyfriend had the best steak he has ever had. I am a vegetarian and still many tasty options for me too. Overall the rooms and facilities were really lovely, very clean and most importantly the hosts were the best we have ever encountered and we will remember our stay very fondly because of them. I couldn't recommend this B&B highly enough, thank you so much Hans and Jolanda! Rachel & Adam

Enjoyed a lovely 3 day break to relax at the end of a busy family holiday. Jolanda and Hans made us very welcome and gave great dining recommendations. As others have commented, breakfast is lovely with freshly squeezed juice and good coffee. Rooms are small but comfortable and there is a wide range of choices for sitting outside both in sun and shade. Jalon is a leisurely 15 minute stroll and has a choice of typical Spanish restaurants. The only slight downside is the road home has no street lights or pavements so walking back in the dark is not advised. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, would recommend and be very happy to return.

We travelled to this region of Spain to do some cycling - this B&B was the perfect base for our trip. The property is beautiful, rooms are clean and comfortable, there is lovely space outside to sit in the sun and also a pool. Breakfast is superb! What really sets Buena Idea apart however is the welcome and hospitality you will receive from Hans and Jolanda. They quite simply went out of their way to make our stay wonderful! I highly recommend and we very much hope to return.
