Penthouse | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2
Our home is set in the hills overlooking La Cala, Benidorm and Villajoisa in the tranquil and stunning resort of Sierra Cortina.
Beautiful views of the sea and Isle de Benidorm make this the ideal choice to relax and unwind without being too far away from the wonderfully quaint Old Town, or the wildness of New Town which are both just short taxi rides away.
Sierra Cortina is also the ideal destination for couples who are Golfers, Hikers & Bikers, with 2 famous 5 star Golf Courses at the Villaitana Resort and two short pitch and putt courses close by. (I have a couple of golf sets you can borrow). Twilight golf on the 18 hole Poniente course at Sierra Cortina is around 20 euros per person including buggy. A very good deal.
If you prefer mountain trails and hillside walks, then Sierra Cortina - roughly translated meaning "curtains of the mountain" - gives you plenty of opportunity to use your hiking boots or, if you like tough cycling workouts, there are abundent hills - very popular with fitness fanatics.
Who are we? We are the owners of Amigos's Bar & Bistro in the Old Town of Benidorm, a beautiful small Bistro which we rebuilt from an old greasy spoon cafe into a beautiful small and intimate Bistro. With the help of our barman Nas, his parents and his brother, Amigos Bar & Bistro - according to trip advisor reviews - is the number 1 most popular restaurant in the Valencia region.
It is with the same dedication to service, quality and ambiance that we invite you into our home for an enjoyable and sunny stay, away from the daily tasks of work, the hustle and bustle of hotels, regimented eating times and the cooking, washing, ironing and cleaning of self-catering.
Breakfast can be served either on the sun drenched terrace or in the comfortable air conditioned dining area and is served to suit your requirements. Times are flexible although I'd probably baulk at 3am.
Evening meals are available on request and our sample menu can be emailed over when you make the booking. Again, flexible to suit your needs and requirements.
During your stay, you will be our only guests with your own tastefully decorated bedroom, small dressing area with good size wardrobes and cupboards and modern en suite bathroom with a Jacuzzi bath and shower. You will find a 2,000 watt hairdryer and GHD hair straighteners for your use.
There is a television in the room which has many English Channels including BBC and ITV and we can provide you with a hard drive with a choice of hundreds of films for you to relax and watch if you wish.
Tea & Coffee facilities are in the room along with iron and ironing board. A washing machine is provided if you feel the need.
Also provided are Toweling Robes and Slippers for your stay and we have an iPod station so you can play your own music.
You are welcome to join us any time in the living room with relaxing sofa and a small bar area or enjoy your own large balcony.
You have unlimited shared access to a huge pool, with sunbeds, tables, chairs, showers, private toilets and wash room. You don't even have to worry about bringing any beach or pool towels, we will provide them for you. If you decide to have a day out by the beach, we can also provide you with an Ice box full of goodies.
There is a 24 hour security system on the resort which in turn makes everyone feel safe and secure.
We understand the importance of holiday time and can provide you with everything you need to enjoy your time here at our home.
Whether it's relaxation or activity, we will do whatever it takes to ensure you have a great break. Evening meal on the terrace, nice bottle of Rioja, warm balmy evenings, candles and cafe del mar playing in the background. Welcome to Amigos Bed and Breakfast.
