Hotel Font Salada, Costa Blanca

Font Salada is a hotel where you can enjoy the Costa Blanca, free of the concrete and high-density building that afflicts some parts. Here you are well-connected, yet in the middle of nature, just one kilometre from the sea and only a short car journey from the mountains of inland Alicante. The simple rustic shape of the building is typically “valenciano”, and great care has been taken to assure it’s eco-credentials, both in the materials used in the construction and reconstruction, and in the optimum use of solar and wind energy.

The Font Salada hotel sits at the centre of a family farm, surrounded by over four hectares of gardens and orange groves. It’s an ideal place for a family holiday, offering extensive lawns, a large pool (with a special leg for those dedicated to “doing lengths”), a children’s play area and and occasional outside concerts in the summer. The restaurant provides excellent organic cooking with many rice dishes and many suitable for vegetarians. Beneath the restaurant is a surprising bodega housing the hotel’s ample supply of Spanish, and especially Valencian, wines.

The fourteen guestrooms are well-appointed, homely and comfortable, including a writing desk, heating, air conditioning, satellite television and a welcoming bowl of fruit. Some rooms have either a balcony or a terrace and the newest rooms are adapted for disabled access.

As well as the white sandy beaches of the coast, this hotel is conveniently located for the nearby Oliva-Pego natural park and it’s hot mineral springs known as ...."Font Salada".

Just spent three nights at this delightful Spanish hotel set in an orange orchard. Restaurant was closed for the first two nights but we ordered a take away and George set up a table for us in the dining room with excellent wine! Fab dinner on the third night when restaurant was open.
Would stay again and recommend it.
We have just returned from an excellent 10 day break at Hotel Font Salada. The rooms are clean and attractive, staff are very friendly and helpful and the fixed price lunch and dinner menu (available daily) is excellent value at 12 and 15 Euros respectively with tasty and imaginative dishes which are beautifully presented. There is also a good range of wines available. We did not find our lack of Spanish a problem as there was always someone on hand who could speak English and they even translated the menu for us on a daily basis.

The weather was superb and very hot during our stay and the swimming pool proved to be a real asset.

We would strongly suggest that anyone considering visiting this hotel should request rooms in the main hotel building, which has a very Spanish and rustic feel, rather than in the modern rooms (of which there are four) which are separate from the main hotel building and contemporary in design. Although these offer wheelchair access, we believe that most people visiting a rural hotel would prefer the rustic charm of the main hotel.

The hotel is very peaceful well situated for visiting places of interest inland or along the coast and we would definitely recommend a stay at Font Salada.
Hotel was nice(though grounds look like they could do with some TLC) and the service excellent as well as friendly.
Little Hotels were very helpful and responsive.
We had a very enjoyable holiday. The staff were most helpful in every way. The weather was too hot, which is a strange complaint. The pool was just wonderful. We would suggest maps of local towns showing the one- way streets. we got hopelessly lost a few times which was very frustrating and took away from the pleasure of the outing.
We arrived back 2 days ago from the Hotel Font Salada in Oliva. We cannot speak highly enough about it. Lovely building, very friendly and helpful staff and superb food beautifully cooked and presented.

The only drawback was being told when we arrived that the restaurant was only open in the evening on Friday and Saturday - so that our half board was for lunch on the other 8 days of our stay ( and as you know the hotel is a little way out of the nearest town or village ). As we like driving around and seeing as much as possible of the area, this did curtail us slightly - we coped by having a late lunch there in order to give us as much " out " time as possible and then the staff were very good at leaving us a tray of coffee and biscuits in the lounge for later. It might be helpful to warn other English visitors of this before they go.

Despite this, we loved the hotel and do hope to return ( and we have already booked our next break through you for April!)

Many thanks for introducing us to this hotel.
The hotel was wonderful, the accommodation and setting very good and the food was excellent, both for dinner and breakfast.

Our one complaint can only be the directions to get there given to us by you. They were terrible. You did not give any direct directions to the hotel only from the main roads. Luckily we had our tom tom in the car at it gave us directions but not before we spent 20 minutes going up and down the road and eventually taking a route through the industrial estate. You need to put on your directions that you take a sharp left turn opposite the indian restaurant, that way customers could easily find the hotel.

Again, apart from the directions, everything was wonderful and we would stay there again.

Little Hotels reply:
We are really sorry our directions let you down. They have now been amended and re-checked.
Just returned from 2 enjoyable weeks at this location, thought you would like some feedback

Pros
An interesting, not to say quirky hotel!
Excellent facilities - especially in respect of kids (the pony rides are a big hit)
Very friendly staff - child friendly
Very convenient location for some good quality relatively unspoiled beach strips

Cons
Not much English spoken, making it difficult on occassion to communicate needs (by room service) as there is no full time reception

Overall - extremely positive - we would recommend it to our friends/family

Here's What Some People Have Written On Other Review Sites or in the Guestbook:

I stayed 9 days here, and it was truly very comfortable, the bedrooms are new, rustic styled, very clean. The restaurant is exceptional with the 16€ table d'hote during the week and a la carte at the weekend. The kitchen is more than a kitchen: it's a laboratory of flavours. Highly recommended.G.

We Say

There is so much to do here: choose from the beaches, the inland mountains, or just busily doing nothing by the pool. You're never far from resorts along this piece of coast, but Font Salada allows you to step back a little.


A Word From the Owner

Our main building is a charmingly typical Valencian farmhouse. Here you can combine your beach holiday with relaxing days by our pool or visits to the nearby mountains and natural park. Always peaceful, with a warm service and good food: something to please all your senses.
