Before, wherever I went there were people from the Netherlands. It often made me wonder where they all come from as The Netherlands is a rather small country with population of less than 17mln. Apparently the other 17mln were in constant travel and spread all over the world..
Now, this domination has been clearly taken over by the Russians( and the Dutch have evaporated somewhere). Even in Spain's Costa Brava the signs are in three languages, spanish, catalan and russian. Real estate agencies in Costa Dorada advertise in russian. Mayorca is full of russian yachts
But that's more understandable as, after the years of supression, their borders are now open and they travel now free as a bird . Often a bird with full pockets.
Hotel Rosa is a charming little gem hidden from the road. It has a very nice Spanish/ neo classical architecture and the rooms are nicely furnished and decorated. What's a bit annoying is the number of signs posted everywhere. It's like reading the instruction on how to assemble a piano purchased in IKEA.
Overall it is a very nice, romantic (if there's no screaming kids) and quaint hotel, highly recommended.
The pluses :
-quiet, charming and romantic
-impecable rooms
The minuses :
-a bit far from the city of Denia. (good for the overweights in need of exercise)
-a smelly and half dry canal at the back that hasn't been cleaned for at least hundred years
-the kitchen closes shortly after 3 PM
-the annoying signs everywhere (see above)
It's worth to mention, however, that the pluses far outweight the minuses and we would come again for sure.

Stayed at Hotel Rosa during the Easter following the recommendation of a friend who visited Denia last year. Everything was perfect, from the friendly service from Rosa, the owner, to the convenient location, just a few meters from the beach. This hotel is a gem. Cannot wait to come back.

We stayed at Hotel Rosa for a short break of four nights. Hotel very Spanish in decor. Very quiet area away from the main resort of Denia and right next to the beach. Small hotel but nice. Staff very friendly, nice continental breakfast included. Our room was rather small and basic but new bathroom. Could hear noise from both rooms either side - could hear man snoring all night - not good!! Very restful place to stay prob more suited to older couples or those with small children not wanting too much noise or hustle and bustle. Some nice places to eat in old town behind Castle in Denia. Seafront restaurants a bit pricey. Small balcony but shaded by large pine tree. Bit disapointing. Would say 2/3 star.

We stayed two nights in a Bungalow for four people at the Hotel Rosa, paying E109 per night including breakfast.

The hotel itself was reasonably clean and nicely decorated, although it felt a little Italian(?) Our bungalow had a decent sized living area, with the sofa converting to a ‘double’ bed – it seemed small but was fine for our two young boys. The bedroom was also a little on the small size but had everything required including a large cupboard and bedside tables. The bathroom was well sized, with plenty of storage space and included a laundry basket.

The patio out the back was a nice place to sit for a little while. Large, private and greened on the exposed side, with a table and four chairs. Also on the patio was a sink and drying rack – perfect for all that swimwear.

Now, to the kitchen... It was well equipped and there was plenty of storage space however when we arrived, every glass I took out of the cupboard was dirty and the plates didn’t look especially clean either. I had to wash everything. When I raised this issue with the reception I basically got the shoulder shrug and that’s it. I understand it’s the guest’s responsibility to take care of the dishes in self catering style accommodation, but it’s the hotels responsibility to ensure everything is to standard before checking in another guest. The Hotel Rosa’s handling of this issue was unacceptable to me. (What do I expect? At the very least, agree with me and apologise – sincerely. A good experience would have been if they had offered me a discount, instead of indifference.)

It was a pretty easy walk into town, even with our boys aged 5 and 9. But the boys were happy to hang out at the hotel and enjoy the tennis court and pool. The best feature of the hotel was the easy access to the beach. The boys had a great time playing on the beach and went for a swim, even though it was raining, wet, windy and cold – we got the only bad weather for the year, probably. They also went for a swim in the pool. The staff thought they were completely nuts. (And several were puzzled by the desire to swim in such terrible weather, “But you’re Australian?...”)

If it wasn’t for the terrible situation with dirty dishes, I would say this is one of the best 3 star experiences I’ve had. Other small improvements would be the addition of some English language channels on the room TV and in room WIFI, which is only available in the common dining area or breakfast room currently.

So to summarize, I would say we had a good stay tainted by a single failure. And this could so easily have been ‘great’ rating.

Found this place via trip advisor afer landing in Denia late. SUPER COOL place! NICE grounds, great room space. Average accommodations but clean and sufficient. Could hear a little bit of noise from other rooms, rather thin walled. Breakfast is included and served by a super friendly staff. You can walk to the sand beaches from this hotel! Best of all the main center of Denia is nearby/within driving distance. Make SURE to go see the "Rock Beach" as they kept referring to it (must drive). WORTH IT...climb around, get lost. This hotel sits back away from the road, down a drive.

I stayed about 10 days in this hotel as I was looking for a quiet place where I could work and organise my diving trips. It is more a place where you meet families and retired but that ensures the calm if that's what you need. The rooms are bright, comfortable and clean. The situation is very good as well. It is not the cheapest hotel but it was the most reasonnable in the area. The service was polite and professional, not overly helpful if you try to negotiate better deals (for longer stay) or need to know the price of something. Food is ok but there are plenty of choices of international cuisine around so food is more an option if you have kids and do not want to move around.
Internet is in the common area but functionnal and it is very close to the beach so you don't need to change or worry about what stuff you bring. I'll definitely recommend it. If you look for diving, I recommend xtreme sub in Denia that has very friendly, cautious and patient dive master with cheap prices. Good shop for diving, swimming and fishing is La Marina del Rey

We have just returned from a two week stay at this hotel & it was lovely. The staff were friendly & attentive & the hotel was in a quiet location but within walking distance of Denia town. A great surprise was the iron, ironing board & clothes airer, so for a 3star hotel, brilliant!
