The Spanish word Escondida means, quiet, hidden, out of sight. A description truly representative of this excellent hotel hidden in the mountainous region of Alicante province. Owned and personally managed on special events by football icon, Terry Venables and his wife Yvette, the hotel lived up to its advertising spin on all counts. Excellent kitchen, friendly, attentive staff, comfortable rooms, and above all, a complete adult break from this present sordid world of death and destruction. One of my highlights was relaxing over a five star lunch on the hotel terrace overlooking the vast panorama of Font Roja National Park, whilst savouring a glass, or two, of fine wine. Lovely quiet evenings, more superb food, then priceless time spent bonding with my family playing cards, board games or just catch-up chat. No television service, so make sure you time record 'Corry' or EastEnders beforehand.
This review is based on my personal experiences over the New Year2016 break. If you want the big picture, go to the website and believe all you read.More
