lovely pool area and facilities although we were disappointed with the room we were allocated. Japanese and steak restaurants both superb. Location is a little out of town but if you have the car, no problem

We just returned from a family trip to the Villa Gadea with our extended family. Everyone had a terrific time. The rooms are very well appointed, great bathrooms/showers, views exceptional (sea view) other facilities also excellent. The pools are particularly great - both for children (there are 2 with a graduated entry) and for adults there is a deep water... More

Overall stunning hotel. We booked the superior sea view room and view was amazing! Staff were friendly and helpful. Place was spotless and rooms were large and spacious. Little extras like toothbrushes, a comb and sewing kit were great. Jacuzzi bath was amazing and shower was spacious and powerful. Loved the breakfast, especially the Spanish omelette! Would recommend asking the... More

We would really recommend this 5 star hotel located near the town of Altea on the Costa Brava coastline. With a great location by the beach, and several nice looking pools for all ages, the hotel is a nice retreat for a summer holiday.
