A stroll around the green with a soak in a spa at the end

The hotel’s name may be a mouthful, but so is the place itself. Opened in May 2003 as the Costa Blanca’s first 5-star hotel it has become popular mainly due to the 27-hole golf course that is part of the resort, although as a hotel in its own right with a lavish swimming pool area it is also popular with families during the summer months.

Location

Set in its own grounds with a golf course and up-market housing estate sharing the complex.

Bedrooms

Apart from eight suites, all the bedrooms are the same, spacious with large beds. Those at the rear of the hotel overlook the pool and the golf course and have terraces, while those at the front the hotel don’t. If you have a couple of small children and are a ‘cuddle-up’ sort of family you might well get away with staying in one of the rooms with twin beds, although probably not for more than a couple of nights. The bedrooms at the front of the building overlook a fairly busy road, and even though they are billed as having a view of the mountain and nature park. Suites have walk-in wardrobes and hydro-massage baths, and two have four-poster beds. After recent complaints about not having kettles in the rooms, tea and coffee making facilities are now provided, although the mini-bars only hold a ‘selection of international waters’.

Public areas

The main entrance leads into a series of sitting areas, some with buttoned Chesterfield sofas and others with tables and chairs. The shaded terrace beside the bar and Montgo restaurant is a comfortable place to take a drink on a warm afternoon.

Eating and drinking

The Montgo Restaurant is open all year round, serving ‘Mediterranean dishes’ from a menu that doesn’t seem to change very often. The much more elegant Segaria looks like a gentleman’s club without the pompousness and offers a much more elaborate (and expensive) menu. There is a pool bar open from April to November that serves drinks and a limited menu of snacks.

Leisure facilities

The swimming pool is the centre of life during the summer months, especially for kids. Adults can play a round on La Sella Golf Club or get fit for it at the well-equipped gym, which forms part of La Sella Spa. A large menu of treatments tempts you, or you can simply try a circuit of the different heat rooms and pools, including an outside Jacuzzi, wonderful to bubble in on a hot day. (The spa closes on Sunday afternoon and all day Monday.) For latish-night partiers, the Jazz Blues Bar is open until 2 am.

Service

Staff seem to be slightly hitty-missy. As many complaints as compliments about them.

Who stays there

Golfers, families during the Spanish bank holidays and summer, young romantics, businessmen.

Price advice

Pay the extra 10euros supplement for the rear rooms overlooking the pool.
