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
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
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.
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.
Location Bed v hard, tobacco stench in rooms, risky parking, breakfast not too good. Wifi not working. A disappointing Parador.
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
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.
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.
relaxing, peaceful, no english channels on tv.
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 staff in all areas coulnd`nt be more helpful, the suite was lovely and an excellent upgrade from the double room
leisurely breakfasts and spa facilities
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.
Service and beauty of the property
Peace and tranquillity Although ultimately helpful, receptions staff were a little brusque. Little info in the room detailing the hotel layout, meal times etc.
Hotel was excellent, we really enjoyed our stay. The staff were very helpful and professional at all times. Fully recommend this hotel. None.
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.
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.
Position of hotel to many attractions, but car parking was not mentioned on information. Very pleasant receptionist on duty in the evening during our stay, was very helpful with our questions in good English. Restaurant was not open
Friendliness of staff, closeness to restaurants room a little small but otherwise fine
Pleasant environment. Efficient service. Central location. Emergency lights came on for about an hour in the middle of the night due to power failure.
wonderful location.Nice staff.Would advise get room with sea view.... no
Old fashioned but comfortable. Relaxed and helpful staff. Lovely , interesting view over front line rooves to beach. Quiet but close to all amenities. Breakfast at 10 euros was not good even though the view was great.
The position of the hotel, right near cafes and the beach in the port,facilities were simple but adequate We had a standard room which did not have sea views
The room had a balcony that overlooked the bay of Javea...wonderful. Would def stay in this room again.Very central for bars and resteraunts.
the hotel is clean, modern rooms and the staff are excellent. I would stay again,also its very good value for money. no pool.
Very convenient location near beach/port/shops etc. Staff very helpful. There is an underground garage nearby which you can use for 6 euros per night. If staying more than a few nights really need the more expensive room overlooking street. The hotel took the whole cost of the visit on reservation - I was expecting at most 25% of total, or payment at hotel. This left my bank account unexpectly low. Also, the room described as overlooking a courtyard is in fact overlooking a ventilation area, very close to other windows.
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.
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
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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).
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
Beautiful landscaped garden with excellent heated pool. Happy staff and lovely peaceful rooms with air conditioning. Hope their restaurant is open soon!
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.
Restuarant 'a` la carte' menu, poor quality food badly prepared, Menu of the Day mostly cold dishes. Hence restuarant hardly used. Cafe good.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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
We were able to walk into Denia easily from the hotel. Our room opened onto the garden. It was very quiet in the hotel.
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.
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.
Great location, well appointed room, clean, helpful staff Beds very hard
Charming hotel which made you feel very relaxed. Very nice swimming pool and surroundings.
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!
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 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
Excellent decor and surroundings. Rooms were well laid out and well appointed Bed was too firm for our liking
Staff superb. Environment luxurias. Delightful town. Food excellent. Cant recommend too highly. Look forward to a longer visit soon. Nothing
Excellent hotel in fabulous surroundings. Beautiful furnishings excellent food, designer rooms and furnishings
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.
The whole weekend was a great experience and enjoyed by us both and hope to experience another weekend there in the near future
Very impressive both internally and externally, easy parking , good food, comfortable bed, everything appeared very clean and superb views. The bottle of water provided in the room should not be chargeable when the room rate is circa €100
The professional and friendly staff.
The comfort and style of the hotel was very good. There was exellent value for money and quality in the bar and restaurants The golf course should have been closed due to bad weather. It was a very bed expirience to try and play the course...
it is a very good hotel. if i have time, i will go back again. i am a smoker, and unfortunately there is no any smoking area in the hotel and i had to go out of the building (in cold weather) to smoke a cigaret.
The hotel is beautiful, clean and efficiently run, light bright and spacious. Staff very pleasant and breakfasts superb. Views from the rooms very pleasant.
The staff were extremely polite and well mannered and the gymnasium was excellent. The spa experience would have been better if the hot rain and cold showers were descaled as the jets hardly worked.
the spa no
The "fine dining" restaurant. Wonderfully comfortable beds. No covered parking
Stylish decor. Lovely views from the room. Excellent position - right on the wide & long beach. Two good Spanish restaurants nearby. Really need a car to get into town centre/restaurants. No tea/coffee facilities in the room
The warmth and friendliness of this family-run hotel plus the wonderful location looking right onto the beach and with superb coastline view. The restaurant was very good!
the location on the beach,the huge balcony with the big chairs,the sea view.
Location with regards to the sea plus the hotel was clean and comfortable. No information on checkin like we close completely on Monday's no draw space in the room, dogs wonder through the bar and restaurant.
Great location, right on a beautiful beach. Our "special" room had large private patio, with a great full size sun awning. Apart from the hotel restaurant and one other nearby, there are no restaurants within walking distance.
The location was spectacular as was the view from our terrace. The staff were extremely helpful. We were pleasantly surprised by the size and location of our terrace and I think the hotel should do more to promote this excellent feature.
This hotel was away from the Tourist strip, so peaceful and restful location. Very clean inside and out. Staff were very accommodating and allowed us to change our room twice - once for a sea view, and again for one with a sunshade/canapy balcony. Aircon system nice and quiet and individually adjustable. The beds are a little hard. The restaurant prices are much higher than the restaurant next door. Both offered very good cuisine, but no other restaurants available without driving a kilometre or two. English is not spoken by all staff, and we were lucky that I can speak French which is understood by most.
The hotel is next to the beach. The restaurant has a nice seawiev & excellent food. Cleanless is excellent. Not easy to find the hotel.
Very nice rooms and friendly and helpful staff. Good breakfast in a pleasant dining area. Hotel was difficult to find. A bit out of the way if you do not have a car.
We only stayed one night and found it to be a small friendly modern hotel, exceptionally clean and well maintained. Good food in the attached restaurant.
The location next to the beach. the very pleasant ambience and helpful staff.
Champagne for breakfast. Breakfast was good too. Food in the dining room at night was very good.
beautiful beach, nice library of free books, a lot of children which we didn't know in advance, but not a really a problem
quite location and easy access to beach.the staff were very helpfull and pleasant.very good choice of breakfast. prices of evening meal exspensive,and not a good selection of dishes. the pool area was small considering the number of guests catered for especially in the high season.
The location right at the beach is excellent! Staff is very friendly and the breakfast buffet was one of the best we had during our round trip through Spain. Sea view room have impressive view and are very clean. A real place to relax! Will definitely come back!
The hotel was excelent the staff were very good and pleasant the area round the hotel was clean and safe to walk arround in the gardens and pool area were first class.
The friendliness of all the staff, the peace and quiet, the sea views and of course the food
We appreciated this quiet place, in front of the see. Also the breakfast buffet, the wireless available for free in the room. Too short stay, so delighting.
The location right on the beach us excellent, and the pool, although small, was a nice alternative to the beach as well. The restaurant food at dinner was good and the terrace bar was convenient for drinks and light meals during the day. The room was quite small, the restaurant and terrace bar were expensive and the breakfast options were limited.
Very good restorante, location and the beach Nothing
The hotel was beautifully and tastefully decorated with some very interesting artwork and collections of antiquities. Very well situated too, being in the heart of the old town and a stone's throw from restaurants and places of interest. I couldn't fault the hotel
Good location, retro style :-)
Being able to breakfast late, and the content. The location in the old part of town. No parking in the vicinity (because car park behind hotel being dug up but we had cases and golf bags and the closest parking is currently 10 mins on foot).
Hotel Chamarel was a fabulous hotel, very atmospheric, beautifully decorated. The staff were very friendly and helpful. No!
The room was comfortable and the breakfast was basic I did not like that the doors had very poor lock, and that the hotel owner tried to get to the room in the middle of the night. Also, the air conditionere is a bit noisy.
The room was a very good size and comfortable. Good location. Lovely 'feel'. Very friendly and accommodating. Difficult to find by car. The garage was awkward when two other cars using it. Breakfast could have been more interesting - croissant or bread. No mention of availability of evening meals but maybe they don't cater for one person but only for groups.
Reception very friendly and helpful. Continental breakfast varied and fresh.Room very pleasant and traditional and extremely quiet. The lighting in bedroom was extremely low if you have poor sight may be a problem.
The hotel is quite different to many others we've used in being full of quirky character. Our suite was large with comfortable beds and a great shower. There was a wood fire in the lounge which made it a pleasant place to have a late drink in thr evening. Nothing not to like - this is a one-off place to stay n close proximity to a bustling city centre. Nothing that would stop us going back. There was a large dinner party on our last night which meant that we couldn't use the lounge - which was a dissappointment. It wouldn't stop us returning.
Central location, had a bit of character. Nothing
Building of character in the old part of Denia. Difficult to approach by car and park.
Wonderful location. Beautiful hotel. Spacious room with incredible view. Terrific breakfast. Best coffee in Spain.
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.
Denia has a more Spanish feel to it than the Malaga Area No
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 view from the balconey and the harbour.you could go out for a walk round the town and to the marina.
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.
A great place to stay
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
Large room and bathroom, well appointed & Tastefully decorated.Very good location. No
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 staff were very friendly, helpful and professional. They were happy to provide local information and order transport. They also coped well with our limited Spanish.
The breakfast and indoor pool we had no terrace or balcony and laundry bags outside the room
the accommodation was very spacious, clean and comfortable and also well equipped only stayed one night and in that time everything was fine
Value for money, lay-out, comfortable rooms and scenic garden. Situated a little bit too far from the city centre by foot.
Excellent accommodation for a short stop over. Very nicely finished and helpful staff
the amability, friendliness and kind assistance of all members of stall in the hotel - the quietness of the place, the beautiful and well maintained garden and swimming pools - the varied children and adult activities - the privacy of the apartment -
the rooms were very spacious; comfortable one swimming pool was out of order. a pity, nothing really bad
Very friendly staff, always helpful; great dinners and very nice swimming pool. We had a great apt, 2 LCD's in the rooms with great kitchennete utensils water in the pool a little cold, but sea water nearby very warm.
Near to the property we are purchasing at Gata recidencial You need Sky channels in English as there in only CNN in English
good position. modern. poor breakfast. hard beds. pay extra sauna.
This hotel was great I cannot fault anything, 10 min walk to centre, balcony rooms have sun all. Day, food was presented lovely, good stay
Port Denia is within easy walking distance of the beach and the town centre is about 1.2km away. You will have to pay for hotel parking but there is plenty of free on-street parking adjacent to the hotel. There is a nice swimming pool area and the lounge area is what you might expect for a typical holiday resort hotel catering for package holiday customers mainly above a certain age. Reception was quick and efficient. The location is very convenient. We have stayed in hotels of varying quality around the world but the food and drinks provided at Port Denia rank with the worst. We stayed half board for seven days and at breakfast often trays of food on the buffet bar were left empty for ten or twenty minutes - eggs but no bacon or vice-versa, beans but no chips. The same performance was repeated at dinner (we did not experience lunch). The automatic bread toasters are a joke. You have to put the bread through at least 4 or 5 times to get a reasonable tint. I left mine running through whilst I went to collect coffee (sludge) and when I got back someone had pinched the toast. As mentioned the drinks are dire. There are four or five drinks machines in the dining room but sometimes you had to hunt round for ones that worked or even had cups available. Dining room staff were sullen, if not surly, and it was difficult to raise a smile from most, but there were the odd exceptions. Some of those guests "of a certain age" though the food and drinks were acceptable, sometimes good. I have had a wide experience and I do not think I am picky, but I would advise the management to take a serious look at the way the dining facilities are presented. Check-out was fast. We had to pay up front on arriving at the hotel.
Good facilities; entertainment; location. Very helpful staff.
Food was not very imaginative and there was not any drink making facility in room
Food was excellent
Comfortable, Not noisy, convienient for our needs Nothing
Situation of hotel,friendly and very helpful staff.
Free wi-Fi Too many elderly patrons
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.
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 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.
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 high quality of the hotel restaurant and the view from the room
Really nice staff, proactive help to visitors. Excellent breakfast. Central but quite location
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.
The hotel is absolutely stunning - completely unexpected, really!
The Hotel is modern, new and clean, basic amenities were all available. The staff were very helpful and they spoke English well. We also liked the fact that there was private parking space in front of the hotel and that it was really close to the Les Rotes beach. The Hotel restaurant was excellent! Great variety and the restaurant staff were excellent too. The location was a little hard to find initially. It would be better if they had a mini fridge in the room.
The restaurant was excellent for evening dinner good choice and value for money Unfortunately we had one of the two rooms on the ground floor which did not have a window at eye level just a small very high one which made the room very dark. As we spent very little time in the hotel it was not a major problem although rather claustrophobic
Nice clean modern decor, but a little out of the way otherwise good.
Staff friendly, hotel new and modern. Beds very comfortable. Free parking off road. Restaurant had a nice terrace, good service and value for money.
Staff were very helpful, room was basic but very clean we were looking for a house so did not stay much in hotel. Restuarant was nice and the food was good.
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.
Design and breakfast, location price
A chic hotel which was extremely relaxing and everything was done in the best possible taste.
The atmostphere and in particular the coutyard for breakfast/dinner was beautiful
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.
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!
