Peter and Ernest's professionalism is unquestionably 'par excellence' but it is further enhanced by a naturalness and genuineness which are most definitely wonderful talents and not something which can be learned. They are simply natural hosts. Their attention to detail is extraordinary and is reflected in the buildings, the rooms (and extremely comfortable beds), the tasteful furnishings and the overall ambience of Finca El Otero. Their thoughtfulness was like that of a dear friend rather than a hotel proprietor: Ernest told me on our second morning that he'd noticed I'd taken my tea bag out of the pot the day before, so he served it on the side from then on; and once they discovered that Mike was diabetic, they took exceptional care - and some great pains - to replace anything sugary with fresh fruit, or non-sugary substitute ... Have we mentioned the food? Each breakfast was a wonderful surprise as Peter spoiled us with a different and delicious array of fresh fruit salads, homemade muesli, savoury delicacies, fantastic banana bread - we could go on, but better yet would be to go there and try it all for yourself! We also had a wonderful dinner - beautifully cooked and presented by Peter and Ernest, who clearly enjoy seeing people relish the fruits of their labour, as we most certainly did. We'd read the reviews and - possibly like many seasoned travellers - thought it all sounded too good to be true and that there must be a drawback somewhere. There isn't. We do not frequently write reviews on places we've stayed; however, Peter and Ernest's Finca is so special - and Peter and Ernest are such special and talented hosts, not to mention just really nice guys - that it is almost a duty to let others know what a wonderful time is to be had at Finca El Otero.

- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Welcome to Finca El Otero, a beautiful property set high on a terraced hillside above the village of Aigues on the Costa Blanca, Alicante, Spain. Our bed and breakfast offering is an elegant and comfortable 'get away' destination for peace and quiet, rest, solitude and time to read and relax. A dinner service is available to our guests by arrangement. Our promise is 'Feeling at ease, feel's like home!' For a large part of the year the weather is perfect for soaking up the sun and enjoying the swimming pool or nearby beaches. In the few winter months the fire places ensure warmth for memorable cosy fireside moments. For the more energetic guests, the immediate surrounds are perfect for cycling and walking or if preferred Aigues town is a mere stroll away in order to access the delights of a typical Spanish village. Venturing a little further provides access to the nearby centres for some retail therapy and entertainment. Although Aigues is conveniently located, car rental would be important for guests wanting to explore the area. Hosts Ernest and Peter from South Africa have settled in Spain for the wonderful weather and relaxed lifestyle. 'We love the fact that everything is so close here yet far enough too. It is only a short drive down to the seaside and nearby towns. It is equally wonderful to return to the peace and quiet. We hope to welcome you at this special destination, our haven on the Mediterranean.' ... more less
