The Oliva Nova Beach & Golf Resort offers family-friendly accommodation in a beachside setting. Located on a sprawling seafront complex linked by palm tree-lined roads, the hotel occupies a modern Mediterranean-style building bordering a lake, and is about a 10-minute drive from both Oliva village centre and Parc Natural de la Marjal de Pego-Oliva, a nature reserve rich in marshland and birdlife. The lively resort of Gandia with its sandy beaches, is around 30 minutes’ drive away, whilst “magnificent” Valencia known for its “thriving cultural eating and nightlife scenes” (Lonely Planet) takes approximately an hour to reach by car. Alicante, “thoroughly Spanish” with “an elegant Mediterranean air” (Rough Guide) is a 70-minute drive from the hotel.
The hotel opens to bright, relaxed interiors including a lobby area topped with a glass cupola and featuring a lounge with a bar serving drinks and light meals. Further dining options range from a rustic restaurant offering Mediterranean dishes, to a terrace eatery and a casual poolside spot for snacks, and there’s also a lagoon-style outdoor pool, a kids’ club and regular children’s entertainment. The resort’s plum attraction is its mountain-view 18-hole golf course designed by Seve Ballesteros, whilst other on-site sports facilities include tennis courts, football pitches and an equestrian centre. The resort also offers a fitness room and a spa with an indoor pool, Jacuzzi, sauna and range of beauty treatments (fees may apply).
The hotel’s sleek guestrooms feature soft neutral-toned décor and wooden floors, and include free Wi-Fi, TVs, mini bars and terraces; some come with sofabeds. Higher tariff rooms add sitting space and sea views, whilst suites offer separate living rooms. Rooms with sea views, private gardens and private swimming pools are also available.
