I had dinner here with my husband to celebrate a birthday. WOW, the food and service were incredible and the ambiance of the hotel was great, we sat outside, the weather was perfect, the decor beautiful, lovely little fountain. Just perfect.
Food is exquisite, you order a starter and main course but before these come there are 3 perfectly delicious tasters, service is very good, we visit Calpe regularly and are so pleased we have found this lovely place.
It is not cheap but in Calpe there are many other choices, this is for treats and special occasions.

We spent only one day at this little gem of a hotel. The staff were super helpful and friendly and certainly made our stay even better. We had pre booked the spa so had exclusive use of the pool, jacuzzi, sauna and steam room. The room was a junior suite and came with a huge bed! The pool area was clean and the poolside beds the most comfortable I have experienced. We ate on the terrace and after asking for some recommendations from the menu had the best ever T-bone steak as a sharing dish. The food was amazing. Breakfast was tasty I had eggs benedict from the hot menu. We wished we had stayed longer but will definitely be back in the future and have already recommended this hotel to friends.

I absolutely loved my time staying in this hotel with my 2 dogs. Everything possible was done for me to give me.the very best experience. The breakfast is superb, the food is out of this world. The staff are super friendly. Nothing is too much trouble and the Manager Carolina us always on hand and available to add.that extra touch. If you ant to use the spa, they make it a private experience for you. When I walked my dogs early in the morning, they made sure to have my room cleaned and spotless for my return, so my dogs didn't have to hang around in the heat. There were couples, families, solo travellers and.others like me, with dogs. All I can say is that I can't wait to go back. Superb.

Room Tip: I had a room on the first floor which had a bigger terrace. Perfect.for.my dogs.

My husband and me decided to stop at this amazing hotel for our "honeymoon trip" and We have no words to describe how amazing our stay was. A special thank you to Carolina Monge who was by far the most professional, friendly and helpful staff member

This hotel complex was converted from a Chinese restaurant some 10 years ago at great expense in a housing estate on the edge of the Calpe holiday resort. It has been through several owners, but has never been a great success.
I tried again this week; there were no menus or prices on their web site and i had to ask to see a menu at reception. Their most expensive restaurant offered a Menu for no less than 80 Euros per head or A La Carte, but as it was only in Spanish I booked at their other option.
Each new owner spends a great deal of money on the premises, apparently believing that good appearance is all - yet manages to leave it looking essentially unchanged. it has always looked well though in a cold, clinical style.
I chose lamb chops. They were about 5 mm thick and required a surgeon to dissect them to find the meat. I ordered a single roast potato and a small bowl of vegetables, both at extra cost. Despite the obvious sauces, it was all virtually tasteless and served on a cold plate. The red wine was well below temperature and highly average.
The restaurant was cold and clinical and looked much like a good quality factory canteen.
I was deeply disappointed since I would relish finding a restaurant I can walk to but I know 5 in Calpe that are more welcoming and serve better food - mostly at lower prices than this.
I wonder what the next owners will do?
