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
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.
