stay

The hotel's setting at the very heart of the palm grove marks the beginning of a new hotel concept. Its horizontal layout ensures that all rooms benefit from direct access to the stunning green areas, as opposed to the traditional carpeted hallways, replacing them with the smell of freshly cut grass or the smoothness of dew on the palm trees. Add this to all luxuries and courtesies offered, which are as many as can be desired, and you will get to understand the real meaning behind their welcome message: "open the door and look at the stars"

location

The town of Elx - also known as the palm grove of Europe with more than 400 hectares of palm-tree groves - has a coastline of over 9 km of long beaches, most of which - despite having full facilities - are set in beautiful unspoilt settings. Furthest to the north lie two natural beaches with fine sand and clear waters, plus another, more popular, semiurban beach known as Arenales del Sol. The four beaches further south are more exotic and natural in appearance being delimited by an interesting strip of sand dunes belonging to the Elx-Guardamar sand dune system. These beaches are the perfect setting for water sports, with two diving centres that organise dives off Tabarca Isle and other spots along the Costa Blanca. A golf course complements the sports alternatives.
