Super hotel with excellent facilities and staff. Stayed here on all-in basis with Saga holidays. The room was spacious with good beds and lounge facilities. Bathroom and toilet separate with powerful separate shower cabin. Linen and towel exchange frequent and cleaning was first class. Balcony had comfortable loungers and table with beautiful view across pool areas to the sea. One of the three pools was heated and lunch was served al fresco in a separate restaurant. Food was always well cooked and presented and breakfasts were fabulous. Would heartily recommend this hotel and would stay there again!

Room Tip: sea view rooms are super

We went today to the SH Villa Gadea Hotel outside Altea to have there newly introduced Sunday brunch. The choice was a bit limited for a brunch and apart from turkey breast there was no other choice of meat but some nice sword fish and tasty fish paella. The choice of starters was reasonable and for dessert there was little to chose from. Included in the price of 18 Euros is the buffet as well as water, juices and coffee. The wine card has a good selection of wines at acceptable prices. After all, villa Gadea is a 5 Star hotel. When presented with the bill the price came to about 1400 Euros but was for 86 persons. We were only 6 persons. When pointing this out to the man in charge, he rushed to the cash till and soon presented the correct bill without any apologies. Needless to say that we left no tip. The hotel villa Gadea is fabulous and the outside area with lovely gardens and several pools is definitely worth a visit. Also you can go there just for having coffee or a glass of wine and enjoy the luxury terrace with fabulous views. The brunch is not a meal you would highly recommend to friends but worth a try.

Room Tip: We only had a meal at the hotel.

We booked with Saga for this hotel and pleased we did. The hotel staff were very attentive and food of good quality however buffet meals were slightly better than the waiter served meals ie more choice and our personal choice. The rooms were very large and comfortable with a balcony (great views out to sea) a wet room, the water was always hot and jacuzzi bath and his and hers sinks. Although our room was on the lower ground floor near to the road we never heard any noise whatsoever at night and it didn't bother us during the day. We were disappointed with the beach as it was pebbles but a nice walk can be had along the shore path. The buses are quite reasonable in price to Altea and we walked back slowly from the old town, it took 40 mins, no pavements ( cycle lanes) so you have to watch the traffic but felt safe enough, many people were walking.
The pools and gardens are lovely as is the outside Palapa Restuarant. Would agree with others the hotel is more a 4 star than 5 would definitely stay here again.

What a great experience we had in SH Villa Gadea! The hotel was fully booked but we still got the detailed attention from the staff and the concierge. The rooms are good size and the bathroom is very comfortable with separate shower and bathtub as well as a door to close the toilet, which I thought it was a great feature. The surroundings are beautiful, maybe the only thing I missed was a sand beach, this one was pebbles but the swimming pool was heated and pristine. The spa is expensive so if you like to get a massage or any other service prepare to pay a steep price. The town is a 5 to 10 minute ride but worth to visit. The hotel is surrounded by very nice and reasonably priced local restaurants. At the hotel the lunch and breakfast was excellent, if you are at the palapa restaurant try their paella. We would definitely go back.

Room Tip: Choose one of the sea view rooms, it is worth it!
