I visited Hotel Tossal d'Altea with my friend mid June 2013. We were aiming for a relaxing holiday to recharge. To start with, the location of the hotel was good (and has parking) - away from the main streets a little way up the hill, far enough away to be quiet, but within walking distance of the old and new towns and the beach. The hotel has been converted from an Olive Mill and has an individual and relaxed style. The room was spacious (and cool - thanks to the air-con) with a big bathroom (with loads of toiletries: razor kit and toothbrush/paste included, useful to know when only travelling with hand luggage) and a small balcony over looking the pool and the mountainous skyline beyond. There was also a safe and a mini-bar / fridge.
There weren't many guests when we arrived to it was nice and quiet and we got use of the pool etc. Breakfast was served everyday from 8.30-11.00 and consisted of a buffet of cereal and dried fruit, yogurts, croissants, bread, meats and cheeses and freshly squeezed orange juice- continental which was fine as it was warm and we didn't need a hot cooked breakfast. We ate at the restaurant one night as it seemed nice and there were a few people eating there, we had the seafood, chicken and veg paella - (11 euros each) no complaints. The staff were helpful when asked about sites/ location of supermarkets etc. The only downside really was there was a wedding on the following weekend which they were setting up for which meant hammering and banging and no more use of the pool which was a bit disappointing - and we didn't get an apology or explanation which would have been nice.
Overall a nice place - would recommend a stay here.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Located on the heights of the town of Altea, just 300 metres away from the Palau Altea Centre d'Arts, or Altea Concert Hall, and a stone’s throw from the Old Quarter, the Hotel Tossal d’Altea was built on the site of a traditional olive oil mill which for over 300 years was used to produce olive oil. The hotel, whose design is reminiscent of Altean tradition while incorporating modern amenities and luxuries, caters mainly for guests seeking relaxation and wellbeing in a warm and welcoming environment in the heart of nature. The structure and decorative style of the hotel, whose rural design is typical of Altean country houses, blend in harmoniously with its restful setting, and it has sweeping views of the countryside, mountains and sea. What sets the hotel apart and endows it with its own personality is its core philosophy to provide attentive and personal services and a quality product for the highest guest satisfaction. Inside the hotel there is a restaurant which has two air-conditioned dining rooms which are open to the general public, where guests can enjoy Mediterranean cuisine as well as typical regional dishes. The "Menjador Almàssera" has a cylindrical stone mill and some presses in the centre, and a fireplace, while the "Saló Altea" is a more intimate area that is set apart from the main dining room. There is also a coffee lounge for guests wishing to have a coffee, which also serves the open air terrace. Hotel and outside guests may use all the restaurant facilities. The hotel has 15 rooms on the first floor and 7 rooms on the second floor. The spacious double rooms (which can also be used as single rooms) have balconies with panoramic views, mini-bar, television, telephone, internet, a safe, air-conditioning, heating, exquisite bathrooms etc. We can also highly recommend our charming Double room with canopy bed, and the uniquely elegant Special Suite which has a private sauna and hydromassage bath in an adjoining room. Whatever your tastes and interests are, we guarantee that your stay will be as pleasant and restful as possible. The hotel’s outdoor grounds include two large outdoor car parks right next to the hotel which have security surveillance, landscaped areas for enjoyable strolls, and an extensive terrace where you can sunbathe and enjoy the gentle breeze. There is also a swimming pool and gym for those who wish to use them. There is no extra charge for using these facilities, which have all been designed to provide easy access for disabled people. You are our number one priority. Visit us and relax in a restful and peaceful setting. ... more less
