“Home from home with sun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2013

We found this gem on the Vi-spring website as we have one of their beds. A good nights sleep being essential. Until now we have never been able to replicate nighttime comfort away from home. All that has now changed with this delightful small hotel. We stayed in the suite which was spacious and more like an apartment. Tastefully furnished and an enormous bathroom. The web photos don't do it justice. The gardens and the views along with a pristine pool make this a memorable holiday. Bert and his staff keep the place ticking over with a relaxed style which belies their efficiency. There is no restaurant for evening meals but there is always their sister hotel and others in the area. We arrived late and Bert soon rustled up some delicious breads and cheeses not to mention some red wine that the Spanish have kept hidden for themselves! We are going back in July.

The Madrugada is hidden away outside of Benissa, but relatively easy to find. Having been totally refurbished over the past few years it is a lovely place to stay. Bert the owner and his staff are most welcoming and nothing is too much trouble for them. Breakfast was good and there is something to suit most people. Not having a restaurant on site would have been an issue for us had we been staying for more than one night, but to be fair, there is plenty of choice within a 10 to 15 minute drive. Overall a good find for us and well worth a visit if you don't like big "plastic" hotels - the Madugada has an intimate feel and is deliberately operated that way, much to the credit of Bert and crew.

Rooms are small but well equipped, with good quality bathrooms.

6 adults and 2 kids stayed here for 4 nights/5 days.
The place is just beautiful. The view of Costa Blanca and the city below is spectacular day or night. The breakfast is more than you can imagine, much less eat. The rooms are high-end with everything you need to be more than comfortable. We all totally enjoyed ourselves.

Lovely little place between Benissa and Calp. The view is excellent and the place is nice and quiet. Breakfast is good and it is possible to have a sandwich or salad for lunch. Very friendly owners. For dinner their "sister" facility can be recommended - casa del maco. In Calp and Benissa there are not many other good restaurants. Or maybe I could not find them? This place can be recommended.

What a lovely hotel. We have just stayed here for a week and it is amazing. The rooms are lovely, the pool area is amazing and the view to Calpe is stunning. It was such a relaxing holiday and so quiet. The staff were lovely and couldn't do enough for you. We would recommend this hotel for a relaxing holiday .

from entering the security gates we know we were somewhere special. What a view! Owner and staff were charming, room opened onto the glorious terrace... and the pool is magnificent.
Slight gripe was condition of tennis court.... but overall a fab place.
