Best Resorts of The Costa Blanca
The 200 kilometers of Mediterranean coastline that makes up the Costa Blanca region of Spain features some of the most stunning coastal environments in the world. Thankfully, the resorts and accommodation options on offer are now more akin to the beautiful natural surroundings than ever.
What was once recognised for its high-rise buildings and full English breakfasts has transformed into one of the most sought after holiday locations in the world. From family friendly facilities to intimate couples’ hideaways, here is a look at the best resort facilities of the Costa Blanca.
La Manga Golf Resort
Situated on the Southern tip of the Spanish coastline, La Manga is surrounded by the beautiful Murcian hills and a huge saltwater lagoon. The region is perfect for beach lovers and water sport fanatics alike, with an endless choice of facilities on offer.
La Manga Golf Resort is the most sought after resort in the region with three championship golf courses alongside 28 tennis courts and a multitude of restaurants. Best of all, with the superb Mediterranean conditions guests are able to make the most of a luxury sporting getaway all year round.
For a family friendly getaway you need look no further than Albir Gardens, which features excellent facilities at an affordable price. The quiet resort is an easy stroll away from the beach and there are plenty of activities to keep the little ones entertained, including two outdoor swimming pools, a children's pool, snack bar, indoor heated pool and a hot tub in winter.

With buffet style dining and a wide variety of restaurants, bars and shops nearby, this is an ideal choice for a stress free holiday.
This recently renovated facility features all we’ve come to expect from excellent Spanish resorts, with an outdoor swimming pool and solarium, children's park and beautiful gardens. Anyone wanting to take some time out to relax can head to one of the three salons on site, while those who want to sample delicious local produce should check out the hotel restaurant, which prepares a range of delectable home-made dishes.
Deloix Aqua Center
Another great destination for the little ones, the Deloix Aqua Centre features 194 rooms, including doubles, singles and suites. There is a modern bar and café facility that’s perfect for relaxing on the terrace in summer, while the ultra-sleek poolside provides waiter service.
