“Beautiful hotel near old town of Altea”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 November 2012

We stayed for 2 nights at Hotel Tossal. This was a spontaneous stay, we did not book the room in advance, and were pleasantly surprised when we saw our room. Spacious and clean with a good view over the landscape and pool. The only negative thing was that the soundproofing between the rooms was not great.

Approximately 10 min. walk to the old town. The breakfast at the hotel was ok, basic selection. The restaurant had good reviews, but we went to the old town for dinner both nights. Beautiful and clean pool area. Quiet surroundings. All in all a very relaxing place to be.

We booked this hotel for 4 days after looking for something traditionally spanish, well we were not disappointed.The hotel is located just outside Altea, a fifteen minute walk gets you into the lovely old town.The hotel itself is a former olive mill which has been tastefully converted to a hotel,the rooms are beautiful with a modern bathroom,the view from our room overlooking the pool and the mountains beyond was amazing.
The breakfast was typically spanish, such as tortilla,meats eggs etc. And even a personal touch off the owner who would cook you a fresh fried egg if required. We had two evening meals which were fantastic.
Would recommend this hotel to any one who would prefer a family owned hotel, with all the personal touches,would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Select rooms overlooking the pool for the best views.

Tossal d´Altea has renovated spacious rooms with beautiful wooden floors. The bathrooms are nice. The location is on the outskirts of Altea and peacefully placed on a hill close to the historic centre. The pool area is relaxing and nice, surrounded by flowers and climbers. The food was very nice and it was no problem at all to arrange a three course delicous vegetarian meal. The service and hotel staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Breakfast was great. A great place to stay!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a terrace on the top floor.

The gardens, pool, and rooms at this hotel all beg for you to relax. If you don't feel totally peaceful and content while you are here then something is wrong. We enjoyed our stay here immensely. The breakfast and restaurant were delicious. The service was great. Hotel staff were extremely friendly. Location was good. I would highly recommend anyone to stay here.

Tossal d'Altea is on the outskirts of town in a very quiet location, but an easy walk to the historic centre, and a little way further brings you to the beach. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. Service is friendly and attentive.

Breakfast is simply superb with warm homemade cakes every morning, an extensive buffet, and eggs fried in olive oil piping hot from the kitchen.

The hotel is the venue a few times a year for yoga holidays courtesy of Yoga Breaks in Spain, so you can practice your asanas, do a little meditation, enjoy therapies and massage, and eat delicious vegetarian food. I enjoyed it so much last time, I've booked again for November 2012.

Room Tip: Rooms either have shower or bath, so if you have a preference, you need to ask when you book.

If you prefer to stay at a hotel off the beaten track, offering a personalized service and authentic atmosphere, Tossal d’Altea is the place to be. The owners of Tossal d’Altea really make you feel that you are a guest at their property. Personally I consider the hotel rather an upper class B&B than a 4-star hotel but this is meant in a positive way. I stayed at a standard room which had a beautiful bathroom, but I became aware during my stay that there were much nicer rooms at the hotel. Meals were served at the garden terrace offering breathtaking views of the sierra. The buffet breakfast was OK. Although there was little variety the proprietress took great pride in the wonderful cakes she baked for breakfast and I can assure you these were absolutely heavenly. I also enjoyed one of the best paellas ever at the hotel’s restaurant. As customary in Spain, soundproof walls are a problem, it was not any different at Tossal d’Altea. A quite annoying situation when inconsiderate guests return early in the morning from a night out or when young children start crying in the middle of the night. Although it is not strictly necessary to have a car, I would recommend to have one at your disposal when staying at Tossal d’Altea. Walking back to the hotel after dark can be hazardous since there is no street-lighting the last 300-400 meters to the property. Tossal d’Altea is excellent value for money and I would certainly consider to again stay at the hotel during my next trip to Altea.

I did not expect much and booked this hotel for a stop over on a long drive. What a positive surprise this was, then! Close to the busy coastal towns and awful Benidorm, Tossal d'Altea is just two or three kilometers off the coast in the hills, but feels very secluded. The rooms are spacious and airy, decorated with taste. The family owning it runs it with pride and dedication. The most positive surprise has been dinner. While the day before I paid a small fortune for a wanna-be gourmet meal in France, here I got an absolutely brilliant three course meal with wine and water for 25 Euro. Light, fresh country-style cooking at it's best, served by the mother of the house on a nice and quiet terrace with beautiful views of the surrounding hills. I could have easily stayed on for a few days of relaxing, but had to rush on... The only downfall of the hotel is that GPSs, even Garmin, accept the address but don't find it. I therefore add the coordinates: N 38*36.001' W 000*03.722'

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Located on the heights of the town of Altea, just 300 metres away from the Palau Altea Centre d'Arts, or Altea Concert Hall, and a stone’s throw from the Old Quarter, the Hotel Tossal d’Altea was built on the site of a traditional olive oil mill which for over 300 years was used to produce olive oil. The hotel, whose design is reminiscent of Altean tradition while incorporating modern amenities and luxuries, caters mainly for guests seeking relaxation and wellbeing in a warm and welcoming environment in the heart of nature. The structure and decorative style of the hotel, whose rural design is typical of Altean country houses, blend in harmoniously with its restful setting, and it has sweeping views of the countryside, mountains and sea. What sets the hotel apart and endows it with its own personality is its core philosophy to provide attentive and personal services and a quality product for the highest guest satisfaction. Inside the hotel there is a restaurant which has two air-conditioned dining rooms which are open to the general public, where guests can enjoy Mediterranean cuisine as well as typical regional dishes. The "Menjador Almàssera" has a cylindrical stone mill and some presses in the centre, and a fireplace, while the "Saló Altea" is a more intimate area that is set apart from the main dining room. There is also a coffee lounge for guests wishing to have a coffee, which also serves the open air terrace. Hotel and outside guests may use all the restaurant facilities. The hotel has 15 rooms on the first floor and 7 rooms on the second floor. The spacious double rooms (which can also be used as single rooms) have balconies with panoramic views, mini-bar, television, telephone, internet, a safe, air-conditioning, heating, exquisite bathrooms etc. We can also highly recommend our charming Double room with canopy bed, and the uniquely elegant Special Suite which has a private sauna and hydromassage bath in an adjoining room. Whatever your tastes and interests are, we guarantee that your stay will be as pleasant and restful as possible. The hotel’s outdoor grounds include two large outdoor car parks right next to the hotel which have security surveillance, landscaped areas for enjoyable strolls, and an extensive terrace where you can sunbathe and enjoy the gentle breeze. There is also a swimming pool and gym for those who wish to use them. There is no extra charge for using these facilities, which have all been designed to provide easy access for disabled people. You are our number one priority. Visit us and relax in a restful and peaceful setting. ... more   less
