The Costa Blanca/Valencia region
The Costa Blanca is a rich, fertile land steeped in history with influences from many different cultures that have overlapped to create what it is today.
The area where Mascarat is located is known as Costa Blanca North which reaches as far North as Valencia and flows down to Alicante to the South; below Alicante starts the Costa Blanca South.
Along the Costa Blanca there are over 100 kilometres of coastline on which you can enjoy the sea and the climate. Choosing the place to suit you mood is easy because the seashore is so diverse. In addition, you'll be pleased to know that the Costa Blanca has been given more Blue Flags than any other tourist destination in Europe since the creation of this award, providing proof of the excellent quality of its water and beaches.
This area offers more than a chance to do some swimming or sunbathing. There is a complete infrastructure for sports-lovers of all kinds. You'll discover that many coastal areas have their own sailing schools, and some run their own scuba diving courses in summer. All this happens at any one of the twenty one sports marinas along the Costa Blanca.
If you are interested in art or history, you'll find quite a lot of sightseeing as this area boasts a rich history and culture influenced by the Greeks, Romans, Phoenicians and Carthaginians. Inland, you'll see watchtowers and castles looming up on every horizon. As you travel about, you'll find a wide range of museums throughout the Costa Blanca region.
The area of Denia has almost twenty kilometres of coastline boasting fine sandy beaches with shallow waters to the north of town and a series of small coves along the rocky coast to the south known as Les Rotes. The Montgo Mountain shared by Denia and Javea is the major landmark of the area with many beautiful walks.
Around Javea from north to south the capes of San Antonio, San Martin, Negre and La Nao crown the coastline creating a series of secluded coves. Calpe on the other hand boasts a long gently curving bay with fabulous beaches whose northern edge is dominated by the impressive Rock of Ifach.
The rock is a nature park and towers 332 meters above the sea. The summit can be reached via a pathway tunnelled through the solid rock from where you can enjoy a marvellous panorama of the coastline and out to Ibiza on a clear day.
Altea consists of two parts: a beautiful beach front and the town itself built on a steep mountainside and dwarfed by its 15th Century church, La Virgen De La Convelo. If you visit the beach by day then do visit the town at night when it really comes alive - the area around the Church boasts some of the best restaurants in the area; as well as the many restaurants there are gift shops and artists stalls nestled among the narrow cobbled streets.
Calpe is a very cosmopolitan town and a big business centre. It also boast two superb beaches. Calpe rock is situated here - Penon De Ifach - the symbol of the Costa Blanca. You can take glass bottomed boats trips around the rock and you can reach its top in around 45 minutes if you feel up to it! Calpe offers a great selection of restaurants and you may be offered a class of Sangria as you browse these near the harbour.
Benidorm is situated in a beautiful setting with two wonderful sandy bays separated by a rocky promontory that offers great views in each direction to Poniente and Levante beaches. A towering offshore fountain adds to the "big resort" spectacle. Old Benidorm lives on in the narrow streets near the castle, where English-owned pubs and bars have long been part of the scenery.
But for a taste of Benidorm at its most cutting edge head for the nightclubs, discos, pubs and cafes spreading out to the east or the Levante beach, not forgetting the major attractions focused in the Rincon de Loix area. Benidorm Palace is also well worth a visit with its exotic live entertainment with accompanying dinner menu.
Guadalest offers some of the most spectacular views anywhere in Spain, Guadalest nestles high in the hills. Although a small village it offers wonderful scenery and a fantastic trip around the castle. Hundreds of feet below is a lake and beyond lies mountains and villages for you to explore.
The Marina (Luis Campomanes/Greenwich Marina) is an excellent place to eat with choices ranging from pizzerias to seafood platters. This area is the main stop for entertainment in Mascarat with its restaurants, bars and yachts of all sizes. There are approximately 16 bars and restaurants within the Marina.
Fortes De Algar is a waterfall located inland of Altea. Follow the coast road N332 and exit at signposts for Callosa. Once on this road take the next right, follow signs for Fortes Da Algar; at Callosa take the right turn at the roundabout and follow signs to the waterfall. There is ample parking and many other attractions such as an open air swimming pool, bars, gift shops and of course Fortes De Algar the waterfall.
Terra Mitica Theme Park is a fantastic theme park with 5 different themed areas covering past civilisations such as Egypt, Greece, Rome Iberia and the Islands.
Aqualandia Water Park, with a host of rides, attractions, restaurants and picnic areas Aqualandia promises a fantastic day out.
Sierra de Aitana Safari Park, situated near the village of Sella, the park offers a great experience. As well as walk through area with picnic tables the park has a safari that finishes with a drive through the lion enclosure that will leave your hair on end.

I was in the apartment with my wife and 6 years child in March between 12-22 and really i choose the wrong place. Altea is a village and there is nothing there. So if you want to enjoy reserve in Beni… More
Firstly, I would like to say thank to all of my existing and previous guests who have always been most complimentary in their reviews and who continue to enjoy the luxury facilities at apartment Alicia some of whom return to the beauty of Altea year after year.
This guest had exactly the same meet and greet procedure carried out for each and every guest who comes to stay at Apartment Alicia, and in 6 years of rentals I have never have anybody claim that they did not know how to work the aircon/heating control, nor has anybody left the keys in the apartment and locked themselves in the garage before, and more importantly this is the first time in 6 years of letting that I have ever made a retention from a guest's deposit monies or more importantly been accused of being a liar and a cheat.
I have many repeat business guests who love Altea and as my previous reviews plainly indicate, have all enjoyed staying in Apartment Alicia.
The guest is clearly very aggrieved about the retention and did in fact threaten me if I went ahead with this, and gave me 3 days to pay him back the full amount otherwise he would carry out various actions including: writing bad reviews to tell everybody that “'I am a scammer and a thief, my trip advisor reviews are all fabricated, calling the police, coming back over to Spain to pay me a visit”. He also fails to mention that at this point he also emailed me claiming that he had forgotten to mention that he had left money and jewellery in the apartment which he demanded the return of and then accused me of stealing. Needless to say nothing, apart from Macdonalds and Kentucky fried chicken wrappers and boxes and a great deal of rubbish was left in the apartment! I pride myself on my thus far completely 100% guest satisfaction record, this being the first negative review I have ever had in six years of renting out my apartment. I am to say the least very very upset at this shameful disinformation and fabrication casting aspersions on the verge of slander. Which has come about merely because I refused to be bullied into not paying back the full deposit when I felt that the retention was completely justified. I find it quite ironic that he came to the apartment upon the recommendation of one of his colleagues who came in January with his family and child, whose visit went perfectly with no problems, and who indeed complimented the apartment and thanked me for an enjoyable stay, found everything in perfect working order and managed to get himself out of the garage on departure day without hitch and thus recommended the apartment to him – and who had their full deposit refunded to them - enough said.
I fully expained the reasons for the retention to the guest.
On check in guests are always shown the aircon/heating control and are politely reminded that they should switch this off when they leave the apartment.
With regard to the meter reading , this is taken at check in. The explanation of this is given both in the terms and conditions and also the apartment information book, which the guest is given and asked to read.
The information book for the Apartment contains full operating instructions and again reminds the guest of Clause 6 of the terms and condition that a charge will be made if the use of utilities is abused.
A detailed explanation as to how the charge was calculated was set out for the guest. As per the Terms and Conditions.
The terms and conditions sent out at the time of booking and which the customer signs to say he has read clearly state that meter readings will be taken on arrival and on departure day and excessive electricity consumption over the normal weekly average will be charged for and a deduction made made form the deposit. I have to say that I have never had to use this clause before, as I am fortunate enough never to had a guest before who left everything running 24/7 – the agent advised that when she went back into the apartment after the guest had left, the heating had still been left on.
With regard to the keys saga. Every guest is given instructions on what to do when they leave property, no problems have ever arisen with this before. This guest was given the same instructions as everybody else. He feels that it is not his fault that he locked the keys in the apartment and thus could not open the garage door to get out. Without wishing to sound patronising one would have thought that common sense would prevail. However, the guest did point out to my agent that it is not his job to think. My agent had to be called out to come and open the garage door to let the guest out. As I say, this situation has never happened before, but I did feel that it was clearly his own doing, every other guest has managed to follow the instructions given for departure, and thus justifiable that the resulting call out charge of 50 euros should be payable by him.
When the guest arrived the pilot light on the gas boiler had gone out and a plumber was there that afternoon to relight the pilot light – the hot water was then functioning properly and the agent waited until the boiler had been re-lit and checked the hot water in the bathrooms and all was working before she left.
The guest said there was a problem with the kitchen tap and I telephoned and emailed him three times asking when it would be convenient for a plumber out come and look at it but he told me that he could not give access because he was out all the time, but that in any case all was ok and not to bother. When the cleaners arrived on checkout they did find that the kitchen tap was working ok, so it appears that the problem fixed itself.
This guest chose to come on holiday in March, unfortunately the weather at this time of year cannot be guaranteed and many of the days were overcast with no sun. I have had many clients who choose to stay in the winter time and have never complained about being cold in the apartment. Ironically his own colleague stayed in January, when it was far colder, and thanked me for a nice stay and was perfectly warm in the apartment.
The internet is on a Pay as you go basis with an external internet company. It has to be pre-booked and costs €25 euros, which I arrange on the guests behalf. The guest booked 1 week and whilst he was there the internet went down on one day which I reported to the company and which had been fixed by 2pm that day. He complained about the speed of the internet, but I tried to explain to him, that's about as good as it gets in that area, we obviously do not have the sophisticated telecommunications infrastructure that he is used to. He called the company in question himself also and was told the same thing - I am sure that they will not be considering any refund.
I do not understand that guest's comments that many things are missing or not working. The apartment is fully equipped and all appliances, including the coffee machine. which is a year old, is in full working order. My agent did tell me that on check in the guest was complaining that everything was not as high tech as he is used to, but again that is a matter of personal choice and none of my previous guests have ever complained about any lack of facilities indeed normally the reverse is true and I have always tried to make sure that my guests have everything they need whilst on holiday to give them a comfortable and enjoyable stay, and which so far all of them have done as my reviews thus far endorse.

"Spacious, luxury with home comforts. Superb views."
Spacious, well equiped, with everything you might need. Bright modern with large terrace area, which held great views over sea, and surrounding area.Jacuzzi was a treat, although only used one night! Beds comfortable(our party consisted of 6 people). Would have found it useful to have small waste bins in bathrooms.Security for complex was excellent. Access via gated entrance, with individual key fob. Own delegated parking space. 2 mins from local supermarket, but there are plenty of others a little bit further but with more choice.
Used pool area twice, very clean. No other guests, so very quiet.
Although only 5 mins away from local marina, a car is needed. Marina beach not to our liking as not many facilities close. We found Albir beach(pebble) a better option, with plenty of restaurants/ bars and shopping close by. Benidorm, with lovely long sandy beaches, and more lively. Altea was worth a visit, quaint typical spanish back streets. But also designer shops very expensive.Local market on Tuesday.
Jaevea, Calpe and Moraira also visited. Allow for sunbed charges of approx 12 euros per couple per day. Jaevea being most expensive. Superb weather completed a great holiday.
