“Well worth a visit golfer or not”
Reviewed 18 March 2013

I have been staying in Spain for 3 weeks where I was a Steward at a large horse show known as the Mediteranean Equestrian Tour (MET 2013), and stayed at this hotel; and very nice it was too.

The hotel is situated in its own grounds in a small village of artments between Denia and Garnie, and is about a 1 hour drive from either Alicanti to the south and valencia to the north.. You will probably need a hire car or to ask the hotel to collect you from the airport. There may be a charge for this but the hotel is very efficient and the cost, I am told, is much less than a taxi, which I believe can be 100 Euro.
Just as you will enter the villas and within easy walking distance of the hotel,there is a group of shops, with a small supermarket, hair dressers, chemists etc. and a bar/cafe. There are offices selling and renting villas too. There is also a bank with an ATM machine available 24 hours.

The name of the hotel more or less says it all, but it is more than just golf. The extensive grounds have a nice big swimming pool (too cold in March I'm afraid!), with attendant bars and barbeque area; and, in addition, a spa with sauna and gym etc. and a variety of classes are organised during the season. There is also direct access to the beach via a gate from the hotel for that can be opened by using your room card.

The hotel has the main building with reception, restaurant and a bar that serves tapas and bar meals throughout the day. The restaurant is very good, and generally has a large choice from buffet where a chef is preparing meat and fish freshly for you. The show officials had evening meals there for the three weeks without the choice becoming boring. The hotel staff were unfailing helpful and pleasant throughout my stay and coped well with variety of requirements of the equestrian visitors.

In addition to the main area there are several blocks of rooms and suites that are set out so that, whilst there is a short walk past the pool etc to the main building, they feel inclusive to the main building. My room was large, on-suite, and had a set of cooking rings that could be activated on request, and a large fridge with a supply of drinks and nibbles, and plenty of room for your own items too.

So, downside? Well none really. Couple of small points. I did miss being able to make a cup of tea in my room after a long day at the show; and the number of telivision channels in English, German and French is limited. But on the plus side you do get up to date on the breaking news with the BBC World Service and Sky world news.

Sadly, not being a golfer I have no personal knowledge of the course, but was told that it is OK, challenging in the wind, and well worth a visit.

So, if you are in that part of Spain concider the Oliva Nova.Whether golfer, sun seeker, or touring I would be surprised if you are disapointed.

Room Tip: If you use the ATM press the green button on the left to open the door to the lobby and avoid lookin...

We have just spent another holiday at the Oliva Nova Golf hotel during the quiet season. We want to make special mention of the assistance we received from some highly professional staff members - Rocio who runs the excellent gym and aqua training classes, and Victor and Barbara on reception who went out of their way to help us on a number of occasions. We enjoyed a super stay at the hotel and can thoroughly recommend it - lovely area, excellent amenities with lots to do and see locally. Top class and excellent spa for relaxation. We travel extensively and it is always a pleasure to return to this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for sea views.

The Oliva Nova Golf Hotel complex is open all year, and offers astonishingly good value, especially in the 'off-season'! We use the hotel several times each year as a base for visiting family nearby......and are always amazed at the welcoming attitude and professionalism of the entire staff, as well as the particularly good buffet breakfast.

The rooms are well-appointed, very well maintained and offer private balconies, many with a sea view. There are also very comfortable suites, some with their own swimming pools. We give this highly unusual golf hotel a well-deserved 'thumbs-up'!!!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with sea view, and southern exposure, especially to get sun in minter.

Stayed at the hotel by chance. Due to low season I was offered a suite at excellent rates. Unfortunately some bars and restaurants closed and the hotel was virtually empty.
The location and amenities are great with a lovely beach which seems to go on for miles.
Staff were very friendly and accommodating
Food indifferent with little choice.

In the middle of nowhere, this is a very nice hotel by the beach and on an interesting golf course.

Could not fault the staff - very friendly very helpful and great rooms

Nice pool and spa facilities and close to long sandy beach

Only drawback was it was a long transfer from Valencia Airport

I ended up staying at the Oliva Nova as I needed a hotel close to some friends who have a house in Forna so my expectations were limited. So I was very pleasantly surprised when I arrived by the helpful staff and outstanding location on a lovely beach. For families with young children it would be perfect. I would say the majority of the guests were Spanish - I only heard one other family speaking English - great if you dont want to be surrounded by Brits! I had a lovely room (room number 4207) on the first floor in a block with limited views of the sea and views over the pool. It was a good size with large bedroom, great bathroom and a sitting room with a sofa bed, doors onto a balcony and small kitchenette area with a full size (stocked) fridge, two ring hob and sink. A further door lead up marble steps to my own private roof terrace with 3 sunbeds, pool and shower! Just great for a private sun bathe! The decor is a little dated but comfortable. The breakfast in the outside restaurant by the pool was excellent - buffet style. I was very impressed with the freshly squeezed orange juice, bacon, eggs cooked fresh to order and a brilliant fresh fruit salad! My only gripe would be that the bacon, egs etc were not kept hot enough in the chafing dishes! My one dining experience at the hotel was in the Italian restaurant and it was very good indeed, freshly cooked and piping hot. I did take a look at the poolside buffet but was put off by the queue of people and the amount of children! The hotel has car parking which is charged at Eur.9 per day but well worth it as your car is parked under cover and the car park attendants are cheerful and helpful.
All the staff seem to have to work very hard as the staffing levels seem to be limited. Yet everyone I encountered was happy to help and had a cheery outlook. I spent just 2 nights at the hotel but would have been happy to have stayed longer. I was so pleased with my room as I didnt expect the roof terrace. For late departures, they are happy to let you use the facilities including the spa for changing/showering etc., before you head off to the airport. I would love to have spent a few hours on the beach but the hotel only has a very limited number of sunbeds and shades and unless you are up and staking your claim by 9am - there is no chance of getting one. The hotel should provide more! I notice many of the spanish people holidaying there had brought their own sunbeds and parasols! Not possible for us Brits who are flying Easyjet!

Room Tip: Room 4207 was great as it has a roof terrace woth plunge pool. Most of the first floor rooms in thi...

For the 3rd year running we have used the facilities at the Oliva Nova and again have found the staff charming, particularly the reception manager Victor who will do anything to help you and make your stay pleasurable. The pool, beach and restaurant facilities are outstanding an just what you need for a truly relaxing family break with children.
