Genearlly I like the older converted buildings which is normally associated with the Paradors but this hotel was fine with the usual high standard of service and presentation one expects from this chain.
The location is perfect and the views are wonderful. Lovely pool. Dining out on the parador's terrass is lovely but the food is nothing special.
Staff realised one of our family celebrated 88 yrs. Sent tray fruit and presents to her room. Excellent
Great location and views of the beach Pool not available in October - Not much there for children
Loved the location and the view over the bay and resort. The reception on checking in when we were warmly greeted and given a room with a great view. All six scores ranked Excellent above should Very Good at least but as there is no such box to tick they got Excellent. Excellent is perfection and only rarely merited by any aspect of any organisation. We hope to return next Spring. 08.00 start for breakfast is a little later than one would expect, 07.30 would be better.
room, view,gardens. Nice place to stay
Not a dislike but feel tea making facillities would be good also evening meals less costly as we could get a meal for two for the price of one in the hotel
Great location, lovely gardens. Nice rooms. Breakfast and lunch were good. Service when dining wasn't very good. Also the evening menu didnt change during our stay.
Very convenient location, close to shops and beach. The Hotel was clean and staff helpful. The large comfortable lounge was also a smoking area so this was not good for those who find the smell unpleasant.
Location Bed v hard, tobacco stench in rooms, risky parking, breakfast not too good. Wifi not working. A disappointing Parador.
The hotel was the only one in Javea with an indoor pool. We disliked very much that pets are allowed, mainly for hygienic reasons but also because of barking dogs during the night (with the typical low noise insulation in spanish buildings). We, therefore, will not return tom this hotel.
The room was excellent, the beds very comfortable, nice terrace, nice view. Very quiet. No wine in fridge. We asked to buy 1/2 bottle of red and got 1 bottle of white wine. Mistake also made in room service order. Management very offhand. Internet very expensive.
Peace and tranquillity Although ultimately helpful, receptions staff were a little brusque. Little info in the room detailing the hotel layout, meal times etc.
relaxing, peaceful, no english channels on tv.
leisurely breakfasts and spa facilities
Service and beauty of the property
The staff in all areas coulnd`nt be more helpful, the suite was lovely and an excellent upgrade from the double room
Hotel was excellent, we really enjoyed our stay. The staff were very helpful and professional at all times. Fully recommend this hotel. None.
We liked the location on the best side of Javea with good views to the coast and to Montgo Mountain. We liked the location of the cafe/breakfast room with its balcony and also the location of the pool. The bedrooms are large and air conditioned with a private balcony and luxury en suite bathroom. The rooms are double glazed and have electric shutters for overnight peace and quiet. Nearby barking dogs can be a nuisance. The reception staff spoke good English and were generally helpful though not proactive. The cleaners and handymen were very helpful and friendly. Car parking within the hotel estate is easy and handy for the rooms. There are a lot of stone steps down to the bedroom levels and this can be difficult to negotiate with suitcases etc. It is not a hotel for the disabled. The spa is pricey and not sufficiently promoted to guests either before or during our stay. There is no fitness equipment in the spa. The breakfasts were expensive and very restricted. There was no consistency in the buffet food provided from day to day. The serving staff spoke little English and were completely passive. Guests have to ask for anything that runs out eg milk and also for tea and coffee - nothing is offered. The sun loungers around the pool are of poor quality, uncomfortable, and are not cleaned or maintained. The pool itself is small and not up to the quality of this hotel.
The staff were excellent, the food was good, except the breakfast which I considered poor. Service here a bit slow. The room was very good.
Cleanliness of the hotel in general. staff very helpful and plesant. Marbel floors outside rooms made it very noisy. Also location of the hotel, a taxi was required to get to the centre.
Restuarant 'a` la carte' menu, poor quality food badly prepared, Menu of the Day mostly cold dishes. Hence restuarant hardly used. Cafe good.
We were able to walk into Denia easily from the hotel. Our room opened onto the garden. It was very quiet in the hotel.
Friendly staff. Wonderful spa facilities. Spacious tasteful accommodation. No shower. Approach road is grotty with delapidated buildings and gives a bad first impression. Hotel itself is very smart.
Excellent suite, great b'fast, good location, staff very helpful. Very relaxing difficult to book spa treatments at preferable times, air conditioning not activiated in the hotel
Very modern hotel.Friendly & helpful staff. Comfortable, clean & spacious rooms. Close to the beach & an easy stroll into the old town & castle in Denia. Will use again.
The room was clean, with a kitchen area (not expected) however there was no facilities to make drinks in teh room (why a kitchen area). Staff were difficult to find and not helpfull with the language. Tried to charge fro breakfast which was included.
I appreciated very much being upgraded to a junior suite which was very quiet despite the beginning of the holiday season and the hotel starting to be busy.
The staff were friendly and helpful and we had a very large and comfortable room. The pool area is really nice with plenty of shade provided by lage palm trees. Would definitly use hotel again. Surrounding area not very pleasant at night
Nice Pool area. Comfortable, quiet air conditioning. Closeness to a lovely beach. No tea or coffee facilities in the room. Old style TV. Some poor surrounding areas due to building and dogs.
Denia has a more Spanish feel to it than the Malaga Area No
A great place to stay
Room good, view excelent, Breakfast was a nightmare we were told it was from 08:00 - 11:00, we went at 09:45 there was very little left even the payable extras on the menu where not available. No hotel information in room I.e hotel facilities, breakfast/dining times.
The spacious room, the helpfulness of the staff in Reception and the Restaurant. Unable to access WIFI in our room (first floor). No natural yoghurt at breakfast.
Large room and bathroom, well appointed & Tastefully decorated.Very good location. No
Beautifully stylish, comfortable room, very friendly staff, very well positioned near town and port areas. would have loved an area to sunbathe in or a balcony
Hotel handsome architecture and presentation, the location was excellent. Room was very spacious with excellent view of the car park and the sea. Room furnishing and comfort was very" faded hollywood", the bed was the worse I have ever slept on in a five star hotel. Breakfast pastries were giving a meaning to the french expression "Etouffe Chretiens" Would recommend this Hotel with reservations.
The view from the balconey and the harbour.you could go out for a walk round the town and to the marina.
Wonderful location. Beautiful hotel. Spacious room with incredible view. Terrific breakfast. Best coffee in Spain.
The peace and quiet was wonderful even though the hotel is very central. We shall certainly be going back. The furniture in the room is beginning to show its age, the paint is rubbing off here and there. The satellite tv remote didn't work. But these are petty things which did not spoil our stay.
The view from the hotel bedroom. The room itself was very small and old fashioned and the beds were cheap and uncomfortable.
I had no complants at Hotel Solymar
Staff were good and hotel clean Hotel was tired our shower would stay on holder and no pressure
Overall stay very good. Disappointed with bar facilities.
I have stayed there before so knew the hotel, great location, basic and expensive for what you get, but when we arrived only 1 room booked even though we had booked 2 rooms and had all the paperwork to prove it but this had not been passed on to the hotel.
Hotel is situated right on the sea front - try and get a sea facing view to watch the sun rise. Hotels was very clean. Very close to some excellent beach bars and restaurants. The rooms are very basic and facilities very limited
Clean room, beautiful sea view. Ease of check in particularly as it was unsociable hours. Buffet style continental breakfast- no need to book.
The beautiful view of the sunset ant Mongo from my window in the evening. I think the sink plug holes need a thorough cleaning as I could see black mould when I looked down then and this rolled my stomach. Also at E6 (six Euros) breakfast was very simple --- a bit pricey for what it was.
Great location, well appointed room, clean, helpful staff Beds very hard
Absolutely fab hotel. Lovely staff and very friendly. It was a fair distance from Denia - but a lovely walk early evening with a 5/10 min cab ride back.
Ambience of hotel and comfort on public areas . Very stylish public areas. Air con in bedroom did not work and although the lighting was very elegant it was not very practical and there was no mirror in bedroom to sit at to use for female requirements . We had a superior junior suite at the front of the hotel at it was very noisy from dogs barking all night and traffic.
The outside space of the hotel. Room was too hot, air conditioning seemed to have no effect. The man at the front desk was more likely to ignore you than be of help. Couldnt get parked in the hotel car park, as there was a wedding function on and no spaces left for gests!
lovely location with very nice views Prices, variety & value for money on restaurant quite pricey, we went out for a meal instead to a local indian. Although we were staying off peak so there was probably limited staff and a limited menu.
Excellent hotel in fabulous surroundings. Beautiful furnishings excellent food, designer rooms and furnishings
the position of the hotel the staff the whole ambiance two very small points 1. there was no place in the shower to put soap etc 2. the television choice was very poor there were only two english language chanels, they were both news chanels some movies or a dvd service would have been appreciated
Staff superb. Environment luxurias. Delightful town. Food excellent. Cant recommend too highly. Look forward to a longer visit soon. Nothing
Charming hotel which made you feel very relaxed. Very nice swimming pool and surroundings.
Excellent decor and surroundings. Rooms were well laid out and well appointed Bed was too firm for our liking
This hotel tried very hard to make the stay relaxing. The standard of hygiene throughout the hotel was good. Staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel is now easy to find as it is well signposted when reaching Moraira. Check in was a little tortuous as the room was not ready until 4pm, but we were provided with free drinks whilst we waited and they were flexible when we wanted to stay on a little longer on the last day.
Very quiet, very modern. Nice room. We only ate there one evening but the food was excellent. We were too late for breakfast one morning so the manager brought us a plate of fruit, bread and cheese...marvellous! Picky I know but it would be good to have heated mirrors to clear steam after showering but it shows how nice it was if that's all I have to grumble about!
Good quality interior
Reception staff were extremely helpful and friendly. n/a
The staff, as always, were very helpful and attentive. The pool area is very attractive and poolside snacks are affordable. Since our last stay in June 2010 the staff have remained as friendly and helpful as ever but the management seems to have taken its eye off the ball a little. Equipment malfunctions (2) and loose tiles immediately above a bath should not occur in a superior room at these prices. Thanks to the resourcefulness of the staff at reception, our stay was not spoiled.
Good position,clean and well presented. Lovely pool area and rooms overlooking the pool were well placed Staffing a little eratic ... sometimes seemed like Faulty Towers eg Christmas Carol tape played at breakfast
Very professional staff, excellent service and very good food
Beautiful hotel. Lovely furnishings with excellent attention to detail. Very relaxing surroundings. Highly recommend.
The recently completed refurbishment of this hotel has made it quite delightfully pleasant. I really can't think of anything worthy of complaint!
Lovely seaside village with a castle overlooking the sea. Hotel is a perfect central location - ask for a room facing the harbor! Wonderful staff, modern rooms and delicious breakfast!
The hotel is in a good location as there were many bars and restaurants within walking distance of the hotel and it is also close to the beach and town. Fantastic view from the room. The hotel is very modern although I felt it was only superfically cleaned. Lots of glass which needed a polish! The downside of the location was that it was very noisy due to being so close to the road. Binmen emptying the wheelie bins outside the room at 3am each morning and rush hour was deafening.
The hotel was stylish, modern, clean and in an excellent location. The staff were helpful and friendly. Although the breakfast was good it did not match the standard of the rest of the hotel.
The location of this hotel is excellent, and the decor is unbelievable. Wish we could have stayed here longer, but it was not in our plans. Would love to go back for a longer visit.
I have stayed at many hotels Denia and without doubt El Raset is the very best and the hotel staff are the politest in the area.
Really nice staff, proactive help to visitors. Excellent breakfast. Central but quite location
The high quality of the hotel restaurant and the view from the room
The hotel is absolutely stunning - completely unexpected, really!
Design and breakfast, location price
Everything! Could be 5star. personal, friendly. No. A little difficult to find but worth the search. a piece of heaven.
Beautiful hotel, and garden restaurant. We've had a great time here!
It was a gem of a place . The staff were extremely pleasant and went out of their way to be helpful. The breakfast and dinners were amazing and beautifully presented. The Hotel is exquisitely maintained, lovely dining rooms, and outdoor terraces. Located near a Castle, within walking distance to the port and great shopping. Hope to go back one day. There was a slight problem with putting telephone calls through to my room.
A chic hotel which was extremely relaxing and everything was done in the best possible taste.
Good central location, great breakfast, friendly staff, great designer furniture and artwork. Lovely courtyard for al fresco dining or pre dinner drinks in summer. Limited to no car parking. No info in rooms in any language re hotel facilities, breakfast tiimes, tv/satallite info, local info etc. Two lamps in room didn't work and were left unlpugged each day but were plugged back in by cleaner for 10 days but still didn't work. The web site failed to say that we were booking on a Fiesta week. The street parties / street disco outside the bedroom window went on for 7 nights until 2 or 3 am each night, which left us with sleep deprivation! Overall two much style, not enough substance.
The atmostphere and in particular the coutyard for breakfast/dinner was beautiful
The helpfulness of the staf finding parking not to easy
Location good for restaurants, shopping, supermarket and bars Breakfast did not have brown bread, eggs of any description or any type of tomato, inall a bit bland.
Located near centre of Denia Triple room was much too small; suitcases had to be stored underneath the beds. Unpacking was not possible as wardrobe was only suitable for one person. It was also advisable to take breakfast early in order to make sure there was still bread, orange juice,....Not everything was available until 11am and at 11am sharp all foods and drinks were taken away even if persons were still having breakfast (no flexibility not even for 5minutes).
Very accessible to the town centre and the beaches. Very clean. They had a sign up in spanish only for non parking outside the hotel. There were parking bays outside the hotel, where I parked my car, but it was towed away. The sign, in Spanish has said so, and I do not speak Spanish. I did point this out the the receptionist though.
Good value, centrally situated, excellent breakfast with fresh orange juice and very good coffee. Hard pillows!!
The hotel is quite close the the mediterranean beaches, and the main shopping street of town. They also serve a great breakfast.
v.clean, comfy, basic but nice enough. breakfast was basic, staff v.helpful, good hotel
Very polite and helpfull staff. Now that the town has a new recycling/rubbish system I would advise requesting a room away from the bins, this is because when they empty them at 3am every day it is extremely noisy!!!
Good breakfast buffet,
Service was so good that whem ever we will go to Denia. We will stay in the Hotel Costa Blanca.
Beautiful landscaped garden with excellent heated pool. Happy staff and lovely peaceful rooms with air conditioning. Hope their restaurant is open soon!
Very fine car parking 1. It smells of rotten water in the room. 2. on the internet the hotel claimed to be complete minus the room we occupied - however we were probably the only paying guests. 3. the restaurant/cafeteria was closed and we were offered an emergency meal of various cheeses(good ones).
This was our second visit and we will stay again soon. Very comfortable and relaxing - very pleasant staff - recommend it!
Some of the staff were frindly and forthcoming. Very little value for money and misleading advertisement.
It was a lovely, peaceful, quiet hotel, away from the main centre of Denia. There were no towels supplied for the pool. It would have been nice to have some.
We liked the character, location and secure parking facility. The staff were very friendly and helpful. There were no tea and coffee making facilities within the room.
Lovely room, very quiet ( no one there). Very good sauna Awful welcome - they did not seem to want us to stay! Inadequate breakfast ( no fresh bread, only one cup of tea) Bad smell of drains in the rooms
velkomsten var fin. rengøring var super. venligt personale. fine omgivelser. kort til stranden. fint fint manglede nogen der kunne snakke engelsk. hygge var der ikke meget af på spisestedet.
Dejlig have med swimmingpool Flere solsenge eller solstole
Det var en dejlig lejlighed godt udstyret til en børnefamilie, samt et venligt og imødekommende personale.
