Our favourite rooms
All rooms at Hotel V are beautiful – so there’s no need to worry about being stuck with the chamber that no one wants. Our absolute favourite, though is Exclusive Room 10, the only room with a private terrace, which has wonderful views over the hills and down to the ocean, while the latter has high ceilings and a mezzanine level that acts as the ideal sitting area. Its enormous windows and well-chosen antique furniture are real selling points, too.
There is no pool at V – but the inviting waters of the Atlantic Ocean are less than 15 minutes’ drive away.
Take a surfer-style hoodie to protect you from the levante winds that occasionally sweep down from the north. And make sure you pack a parasol or two – many of the beaches in the area are completely unspoilt, and devoid of sunbed hire.
The hotel is not suitable for children between two and 12 years old, though cribs can be supplied for babies.
