“The Perfect Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2013

Perfect location - perfect hosts - lovely touches throughout the hotel - 5 star standard. In the old part of Altea but a very easy walk to the beach. (It looked steep but in fact was a nice stroll).
This is a perfect hotel for couples. We will definitely be back. Les & Doreen

It rained throughout our 4 day stay in Altea. But our stay at Hotel Abaco made up for it, delivering a "golden experience". Everything was excellent; from the nice reception cava drink to the cosy and quaint atmosphere of the hotel. It is beautifully decorated, clean and fresh. The breakfasts are simply outstanding and you can help yourself to tea/coffee and home-made cake at anytime! Adeline and Thomas, the couple who run the hotel, are very friendly and helpful (and so is Thomas' father who re-built the hotel a few years ago spending time travelling around Cost Blanca looking for artifacts and interior details from old Fincas and Spanish-style houses). They can all advise you on anything you need for your stay, whether you plan to walk around the streets of old Altea, find the best beaches or hike the surrounding mountains. The rooms are cosy and clean. We stayed in the Marakesh room but also had a quick look into “Ceasar”. Both are beautifully decorated in style with the themes. There are others: Havanna, Provence....etc. We would love to come back and stay each time in one of the six different rooms.

The hotel located in the center of the old town of Bellaguarda-Altea, served with traditional and romance ambience, operated by friendly and helpful host - Adelina and Thomas. The room is nicely decorated, clean and neat. There are also quite a number of shops around whereby you are able to shop around conveniently. Costa Blanca seafront is just 5 minutes walking distance from the hotel. Highly recommended to anyone who wish to have a romantic trip in Altea.

Our stay at Hotel Abaco was more than perfect. Thomas and Adelina are amazing hosts, they ensure every detail is always beautifully taken care of. The rooms are gorgeous, the lobby is adorable, and the breakfast is lovely. My husband brought me here on a surprise to propose. After visiting every hotel in Altea he chose Abaco because it is by far the most unique and romantic. We were given Cava and chocolate dipped strawberries upon arrival, candles were lit every night, we had breakfast in bed, and amazing dinner recommendations. We loved Abaco and Altea so much we decided to stay an extra week and get married on the beach! We can't thank Thomas and Adelina enough for an unforgettable stay in Altea :)

Warm welcome and great stay in Abaco Inn
Adelina and Thomas couldn't be any more helpful with excellent recommendations on where to eat, things to do and places to see in the area. The rooms are beautiful, also the breakfast area with chairs and a real fire.
The extras like a glass of Cava or the coffee and home baked cakes made the stay special

What can one say only excellent, greeted by Adelina and Thomas with glasses of CAVA and thomas's cakes. Stay in the Moulin Rouge room which we both thought was beautiful. Beautiful service by a 6 star couple and nothing was to much bother. Forgot about the excellent chocolate strawberries

BRAVO to Thomas and Adelina

see you again some day

A sweet place and a sweet couple! We stayed three nights with Adelina and Thomas, and the experience was special from the very first moment. We were greeted with some nice bubbly and delicious chocolate covered strawberries. Our hosts took great care of us, made wonderful restaurant and beach recommendations, and made us feel very much at home. We stayed in the Moulin Rouge room. It, as well as the entire place, was comfortable, spotless, and beautiful. I hope to get back in the area someday, and if I'm ever near the Abaco Inn in the future, I will definitely stay there again.
