Before we get to the sting in the tale. The hotel is typically Spanish with good facilities including, ample parking,WiFi, swimming pool with great sun terrace and shaded area furnished with beds and shades. There is a lovely covered terrace area to eat alfresco with an outside bar.
The hotel is well decorated in a typically Spanish style, it's very welcoming from the moment you enter. The rooms are well proportioned with a large bathroom, with a shower over the bath, I understand they do have rooms with walk in shower facilities.
Rooms have TV, telephone, fridge,safe and hairdryer.
The rooms have views of the local countryside the best side to be is poolside.
The hotel has restuarant that serves a buffet breakfast which is ok and pretty standard.
The hotel can be found up a single track road which enters straight into a parking area with shade.
The hotel is only some 500 metres from the old town but the road is very very steep when leaving the hotel and would be dangerous for anybody unsure on their feet.
STING IN THE TAIL
The hotel is the noisiest I have stayed in, the walls are paper thin and the slightest noise resonates throughout the hotel. You will not sleep if you are a light sleeper.
The tv from the adjoining room can be listened to with ease so can the water being put in the sink along with the snores of your neighbour. This is a deal breaker for me and we would not return for that reason alone.
To end on a positive note the staff are exceptional polite and very welcoming it's just a shame about the noise insulation.
- 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.

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.
