Villa Gadea has the nicest staff imaginable, the food is good and the location is very pretty. On four evening of the week there was good quality live entertainment and the public spaces are very attractive. The three pools are lovely but the beach is a bit of a let down as it is stony with little or no parasols... More

The deluxe rooms are nice and big. Everything is well maintained and clean. Excellent choice of food at the breakfast buffet. Friendly staff. The outdoor pools are good designed, water clean with low chlorine. Good food and drinks to acceptable prices at the restaurants. Spa access only with a surcharge of Euro 22.00 is ridiculous. Friday and Saturday was loud... More

Had a very nice stay. The evening buffet was really good, with lots of good quality choices. Breakfast also great with very nice staff doing the eggs. Very cozy bedrooms and lobby. The beach is different but good enough.

Disappointing experience at this hotel, when it's full with 600 guests, it feels like bedlam, not 5* luxury. The hotel claims on its website that there is a "spacious terrace" and is a "fantastic place to get away from it all and submerge yourself in the peacefulness and beauty of lazy Mediterranean days" I have posted a picture of a...

Very well looked after area, nice and clean, western Europe kind of environment. Bit more for visitors to enjoy our view of Spain ... not too typical Spain .... but worthwhile for a week or two. And Altea is near by, although you can't walk into the Old Town, which is a must see.
