We arrived at the hotel late afternoon after a long drive from staying with family near Gandia, Valencia. The reception area was closed and so we walked over to the bar/restaurant area.
Catching the attention of a waiter we handed over our emailed confirmation of the accommodation and he then promptly sought out a gentleman who guided us back to the reception to check in and show us to our room. Being as we were only a couple we were only allowed access to the upstairs of the apartment, the accommodation is built in seperate apartment blocks, but if we wanted to use the back garden veranda area that was fine. This area was well planted with shrubs and flowers and therefore was a very pleasant area to sit and read. The upstairs accommodation consisted of two twin rooms and a bathroom. The style is rustic with dark wood furniture, and old style beds. The rooms were clean, had TV albeit only Spanish, and plenty of towels, they also offered shower gel & shampoo. There is a small balcony off from the upstairs landing area. The one complaint is the shower. It was very small and had no shelf for shampoo/shower gel etc which made showering a little tricky, plus our actual shower needed repair really. We arrived on a Thursday late afternoon and after having checked in and unpacked we decided on a drink and dinner.We were given no information about meal times etc when checking in & so arrived too early for dinner and to the incorrect room. We enjoyed a cold beer at the bar/diningarea & then we were told dinner was at 8pm., time for another cold beer then. We were the only people in the restaurant that night, but the food and service were very good, and the staff appeared to have patience with our constant use of our translation book.
The next morning was a repeat, we didnt know where to go for breakfast but thankfully the waiter from the night before was on duty and helped us out.
The hotel is ideally situated for the park, and with just a short drive up further into the hills for ideal walking tracks, quite well signposted where you can see all species of wildlife. We spotted deer, wild pig, numerous birds, and wild cat too. We were hoping to see Lynx but this time it was not to be.
We were not with a guided tour and our Spanish is limited and therefore it did inhibit us a little & perhaps we missed out on items of information becuase of our lack of communication but we thoroughly enjoyed the stay.
