I stayed here with my husband and two boys (aged 4 and 6), for just one night in August. We arrived at midday and although too early for check in we were allowed towels for the pool. The next day check out was at 12 but we were allowed to use the pool etc as long as we wanted to. We spent most of our time in and by the pool, which was great. The boys loved having drinks and crisps at the swim up bar! Breakfast was included and the buffet was vast and tasty. We also tried the restaurant outside by the pool which was a bit pricey but a delicious paella.
In the evening we took a taxi (<€10) to Altea old town. We are at Pirates tapas bar, which was recommended by the front desk. Delicious. The tasting menu was €19 each and we had about 10 dishes each, including a dessert.
We all shared one room with twin beds and a double sofa bed. Fine for a night. The room was big, clean and the bathroom huge.
A great mini break for us. My sons think all hotels are like this now!
Had a little trouble finding the hotel but well worth it when we did. The building was originally an old olive mill and the hotel has been created using original features. The dining room is delightful and the food fabulous. Our waitress - Vincente - was very attentive but not intrusive and although did not speak English, we still managed to communicate quite well. The choice at breakfast was wonderful with an abundance of fresh fruit, breads, cereals as well as the usual cold meats, cheese etc. Our bedroom was very spacious as was the bathroom and we looked out onto the sun rising on the mountains. The old town was a mere 7/8 minute walk from the hotel. Unfortunately we only stayed for 1 night but will certainly return.

Very attentive staff. Location great - beautiful views very close to the marine. As I visited the apartment in February I couldn't take advantage of the pool, beach etc, but definitely worth the stay.
Very clean, lovely terrace.

"Lovely boutique hotel in the heart of the old village"
Benidorm may be only a few kilometres away, but feels as though it's on another planet. La Serena is in the hillsid village of Altea, not on the coast (though the sea can clearly be seen from the terrace and most of the bedrooms), and is a delightful, boutique hotel with designer-style, air-conditioned accommodation, a small pool, a restaurant serving breakfast (which was very good) and dinner (which I didn't try), both in the dining-room, and on the terrace at the back of the hotel. Altea, whilst far more upmarket than most of the coastal resorts, still receives large numbers of tourists; but La Serena, though only a few minutes' walk (up a steady but not particularly steep hill) from the centre of the village, lives up to its name and is wonderfully quiet and peaceful. It is, though, extremely difficult to find (though easy enough once you know where it is), even with a map, as it is hidden on a back street with little in the way of signs from the village or the approach roads. Definitely worth the effort, though, and the (non-trivial) cost!
