Altea is a gorgeous white washed town. Hotel Abaco is the jewel in the crown. In some ways I was a little nervous before we arrived at Hotel Abaco. How can anyone live up to the fabulous reviews on tripadvisor. We're a young (ish) couple in their forties & I wondered whether it would be too quiet for us. It was, but for all the right reasons. Hotel Abaco really is a gem. Situated on a very quiet street but close to the higher old town it takes a little bit of finding with your sat nav but having stayed there and met the owners I have no doubt that if you get lost just pull up, give them a call and Thomas will come and get you. The welcome you will receive is second to none. Thomas was there to meet us and as they have just had a beautiful baby Adeline just had time to pop in to say hello. This small but beautiful hotel is wonderfully decorated with fantastic attention to detail from Thomas's father & mother. The whole hotel oozes class. The rooms are fabulous. The breakfast is wonderful but most importantly you leave with a sense of having stayed with friends rather than hoteliers. My advice? Treat yourself to at least one night there. Have a chat with the new young grandfather (who will enthuse you of how he renovated every area and just how old that front door is) and enjoy every minute. Romance is not dead nor gone. It's in candles on stairs at night, soft music in the background and a promise to return. We loved it.
