If our friends hadn't recommended La Madrugada we might never have discovered it; and boy, what would we have missed? This luxurious bijou hotel is 700m down a track from the main Altea to Benissa Road so not somewhere you would stumble across but its seclusion makes it all the more wonderful. The ground floor rooms open out onto the pool area and the view is amazing. Each room is beautifully and tastefully furnished by Lieve whose husband Bert runs the hotel with charm and courtesy and a great sense of humour. Fittings, such as the bathroom, are to a really high standard and the atmosphere of calm and elegance is unsurpassable. Bert gave us excellent advice each day on where to visit (we can recommend Altea, Guadalest, Denia and Javea) as well as where to find a little tapas bar located right on the beach. The hotel was formerly owned by singer Sarah Brightman and it retains the private home ambience that you might expect. It doesn't boast a restaurant although breakfast is excellent and you can get snacks and light meals all day and evening. We dined in the restaurant of the sister hotel Casa del Maco which was superb, if a little expensive. But a lovely treat towards the end of our holiday. A hire car is a must for this hotel but it makes a great base for exploring this part of the Costa Blanca and is the most wonderful place to come back to after a busy day touring. In fact, some days you won't want to go anywhere at all - just laze by the pool and imagine you own it!
