Finca Fanecaes Hotel Rural Castillo de Biar

If you are looking for a chain hotel with revolving doors and rooms with duvets, too many pillows and contemporary art on the walls this is not your hotel.

This hotel is close enough to the coastal city of Alicante and yet far enough for you to enjoy the 'real' Spain, a Spain I remembered years ago when I visited with my family. Every part of the tiled floors, potted plants, wooden shutters and beams was every inch of the Spain that fascinated Ernest Hemingway.

Lolita & Santiago embrace their guest with an amiability of a long lost aunt & uncle who are pleased that you have chosen to return to their home. Their goal is to please, and with each gesture, and smile you are reassured that you are in good hands.

Dinner was superb, and breakfast was the typical Spanish breakfast, light, but filling.
(Special note: remember this is Spain. The Spanish do not eat heavy meals in the morning. It's either a galleta or a roll with coffee - but they are happy to accommodate any gastronomic whim you might have).

So with all this said, when in Rome do as the Romans! Be passionate, eat well, laugh and drink wine, because this is the hotel where to do it.

Room Tip: The hotel is just off central Biar, if you left the town and driven over 10 minutes you've past...

Just realised that this is the same place as "Hotel rural castillo de Biar" so thought I would post a review here too. The slightly confusing fact of having 2 names is the ONLY downside of this hotel for me. Yes the rooms are rustic but it's a finca in rural Spain: surely that's why you book there? Anyway, we loved the room; rustic, character, still with a flat screen tv and spotlessly clean. Comfy bed and gorgeous view. Staff were brilliant, made us feel right at home and the restaurant was great, too. Authentic Spanish country food impeccably cooked.
Great spot to explore the lovely town of Biar and surrounding countryside, where we had some great walking. Not a place to stay if you don't have a car but we loved it.

Room Tip: We stayed in junior suite room 15 with a huge terrace and a fireplace. It was lovely and well worth...

Lovely finca hotel set amongst the olive and walnut trees very close to the beautiful town of Biar. All the staff/ owners were fantastic - really friendly and welcoming. Nothing was too much trouble for them, they made us and our dog feel right at home! The whole building is a delight: cosy and traditional but provides everything you might need and stunning views as well. Horse riding is available on site, and they were happy to arrange walking trips, bike hire and anything else we were interested in. The restaurant served fantastic local produce and again the staff were great, recommending the incredible local shrimp. Everything we tried was fresh and perfectly cooked, complemented by a really solid wine list of Spanish classics.

We will definitely be back.

We booked for 4 nights but did not stay. The hotel looked fine, nice views over the countryside but the rooms we were offered were rustic, ie beams etc. but were very basic. I cannot comment on any other features, the receptionist did her best to accomodate us but although the room would have been adequate for one night we felt we could not stay for 4 nights.
