“Perfectly Romantic”
Reviewed 7 January 2013

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights during our honeymoon. It is wrongly classiied as a bed and breakfast. It should be considered a romantic villa, complete with pool, restaurant, cozy outdoor cabanas, and a spectacular view. The architecture is gorgeous and the proprietor explained that it used to be a home for Spanish nobilty. Be sure to stay at least 3 nights in order to take it all in. The food was impeccable and the service stellar. The landscaping will take your breath away and scattered around the grounds are lime trees that you are welcome to pick. We used these limes in our sangria while lounging by the pool. It was a bit hard to find, even with our GPS. Be sure not to be confused by the signage in Catalan, not traditional Spanish. Just a short drive to the local beaches and attractions.

We were looking for a quiet hotel to relax and chill whilst the grandparents looked after our small son. This was just perfect! We had looked on the web for hotels near Denia ne hadn't come up. We actually drove by on the way to Denia one day and popped in to have a look and then booked there and then! It actually comes up as a bed and breakfast but is definately a hotel. We had a room away from the main hotel which was large and spacious. The room was very clean and had a large whirl pool bath! It had a very effective air con system! There was a small outside space with chairs to chill out in. The pool was an unheated outdoor pool which was great to cool down in on a hot August day. There were a lot of wasps around the pool just having a drink. Initially off putting but actually didn't bother us at all. We ate a lovely meal in the evening with two starters to share, main course and dessert for their menu of the day for 19 euros. Wine was good too and not too expensive. Breakfast was a typical self service buffet but very good. All in all we had a lovely relaxing break. Tiny minus points no dressing gowns or conditioner in bathroom but certainly did not distract from the stay. A huge plus was how helpful the staff were at this small friendly hotel. There was a small fitness centre which looked fine although we didn't actually use it.

Room Tip: The rooms outside of the main hotel are larger and more recently decorated than the ones in the main...

I can only assume that the previous review was written by someone from the Hotel it goes on to recommend, as I cannot recognise the description they give from my experience at Hotel Buenavista!

My husband and I stayed for 2 nights and wished we could have stayed longer, as it is a lovely little hotel in a quiet spot. We found the staff there extremely polite, helpful, accommodating and efficient. Everything we asked for, we got and more besides.

The gardens are lovely and we enjoyed a bottle of wine one evening sitting outside in a very peaceful spot. The gardens are beautiful, really pretty and well maintained - I even saw the gardeners arrive on the morning we left and they were very busy pruning bushes and trees etc! The swimming pool is large, clean and cool, with plenty of loungers/ chairs. There is also a racket ball court of some description and a small gym.

The room we had on the second floor was very clean, light and spacious. Yes, perhaps some of the fixtures are a bit dated, but to most reasonable people, this doesnt cause any problems. The air conditioning worked perfectly and our room was cool throughout. We also had fantastic nights' sleep, even though the hotel was almost full whilst we were there. The beds were very large and comfortable.

It was also great to be able to park the car (in the shade), having just come from Granada where it cost quite a lot to park the car.

We did a few small walks in nearby Javea/Xabia (also a lovely spot) and Calpe; Denia itself was really bustly and a very pleasant town. Ate a great meal at the Raset restaurant (see trip advisor for lots of reviews!).

So overall, I would say that this is an oasis of calm and a lovely place to stay and I would recommend it to anyone who can understand that not everything in life is perfect, but it can still be enjoyable nonetheless!

We booked two nights at this hotel based on the reviews, however we soon realised that we had made a mistake.
The dining room was dirty as was the hotel generally, the air condioning did not work and the temp was 33 degrees, the rooms very small and dated ,the power kept going off . Overall it felt like a dated faulty towers. The grounds had been barely touched and it seemed that the hotel was run by two girls who were lost as to how to maintain the building. It wasmore expensive than the marriot which was much better if you want a hotel outside of Denia.
I would recomened the Hotel Charmarel in tne cenre of the town, it was truliy charming

Firstly, this isn't a B&B, it's a four-star hotel with a nice restaurant. My wife and I stayed here for two nights in early June. For some reason, the place was virtually deserted, even though it was half-full. The staff are absolutely charming, from front of house Lupe (who speaks excellent English) to Sanche, the odd-job man and what'shername behind the bar, neigther of whom speak anything other than Spanish but are a dab hand at miming.

Room: we had 103, which has a great terrace. Very comfortable, spotlessly clean. Goodness knows who does the housekeeping because we never saw anyone but always returned to a freshly made-up bed and clean towels. The bathroom was showing its age a bit but everything worked and was, again, scrupulously clean. Memo for women: do your make up on the terrace - the lighting in the bathroom is poor, even using the magnifying mirror provided. There's ethernet for your laptop in each room, along with multi-channel Spanish tv.

Food: Really not bad at all. Fish was excellent, vegetables properly cooked, puddings moreish. My wife had a steak one night which was a bit tough but that's about all there is to complain about. If you are looking for value, go for the half-board. Wine list short but reasonable. Expect to pay €12-18 for a bottle of good white and €12-35 for a bottle of good red. House wine drinkable and available by the glass, though they'll also make any of the other wines available by the glass. What'shername makes a mean gin and tonic - don't drive after drinking one. Breakfast: usual buffet but all ingredients completely fresh. I ate too many of their terrific croissants, which were better than most I've had in France. Do go for the coffee, even if it's decaf (descaffinado) because it's among the best coffee you'll ever taste.

Pool: 25-metre job, unheated, but at 30C who cares? Again, well tended. There are many wasps in the area and they tend to commit suicide in the pool, so be warned. Mr odd job man had to come in on his day off to sort them out, which he did efficiently and uncomplainingly.

Setting: beautiful. The gardens have been designed to prevent you seeing anything other than good views. The planting is mature and really rather beautiful.

You'll need a car to visit this hotel, as it's slightly out of the way, but it's worth the drive. You'll have a very nice time and meet some very nice people and not break the bank. Expect to pay between €100 to €180 a night for two depending on the time of year and the size of room. Half board a good option if you can't be bothered to drive to another restaurant or want to drink a glass or two. Don't worry if you can't speak Spanish - you'll muddle through.

This Hotel was amazing. It has it's own beautiful grounds, with swimming pool, Gym, seating areas and parking. It is situated in a quiet area with great views, it is easy to find and best of all only a 10 minute drive to Denia. We actually walked into Denia only 30minutes. You have a hidden Gem here, and it gives you access to the whole area. The hotel was fantastic all the rooms were clean and of a good size. Some of the rooms on the first floor had massive terraces with amazing views. The staff were all very helpful nothing was too much trouble, even though we didn't speak Spanish and their English was limited we all managed to communicate and got everything we asked for.
So the Hotel, Staff and amenities were excellent, but the food was even better.
We were served with the best Steak we have ever tasted. We did not book for the evening meal, but in the end it was so good we had the evening meal every night.
This is an Hotel everyone going to this area of Spain should stay at, whether you want romance, relaxation, culture or great food do not miss it.
We can't wait to go back
