We stayed here on a weekend getaway. The hotel is in a small village in the foothills of the nearby mountains, a thirty minute drive from the the Costa Blanca beaches. Situated in a renovated townhouse with modern, artistic flourishes, it has a well stocked bar with nice wine and craft beer selections, which was a welcome diversion on arrival. Our favorite aspect was probably the terrace - a great spot for a glass of wine in the evening as well as to enjoy the outstanding continental breakfast in the morning. As others have said, Rubén is an accommodating and attentive host and he was there to help with all questions, great and small. Mardenit’s slogan is ‘rural and modern’ and it really struck the perfect balance.
Hotel Mardenit is a beautiful small boutique hotel. Ruben and his wife are very charming hosts. We had the Santa room which is spacious with a terrace and a lovely shower room. We enjoyed the Arabic night dinner with excellent wine. The only minor blip was the billing at the end of our stay. The website clearly stated that breakfast was included but we were billed an additional 80e. Ruben said this was a mistake on the computer translation and we agreed to split the difference. When I got home I noticed the room rate charged was more than the advertised rate. I emailed Ruben and he immediately apologised and refunded the difference.
First of all, Ruben is a fantastic host who goes above and beyond. We had an amazing breakfast on the balcony overlooking the mountains. If you want to escape the crowds and have a genuine Spanish experience, close to mountaints for morning hikes and still close enough to go to the beach, this is the place for you!
Ruben was a great host, and made us feel very welcome upon arrival. Covid rules were strictly followed - all our luggage was disinfected as well as our feet and hands. All staff and clients wearing face coverings at all times. The bedrooms are spacious, luxurious and very clean. We had a lovely balcony with fantastic views. Rooftop jacuzzi was phenomenal. Breakfast was 10/10 . We had it served on our balcony and included homemade pastries and local food. With a different type of homemade fruit juice everyday. Ruben was an incredible host and gave us lots of useful information in regards to what we could do in the area. He recommended some beautiful walks , some very good restaurants and even booked us a tour at a a local bodegas. It was very hot during August and although the hotel itself doesn’t have a pool, just a short distance away you can enjoy a nice swim in the municipal swimming pool. Which you can have access to for 2 euros. It was very nice. All in all it was a very pleasant stay and we would definitely go back again. …
A lovely modern place to stay in an unspoilt village. Ruben and Magda were charming hosts who did everything possible to make our stay memorable. Local knowledge was excellent. The rooms were clean and luxurious with private sunny terrace. Breakfast was excellent with local specialities and home cooked cakes and pastries. My sister and I stayed there for a walking holiday - the location was ideal and Ruben was able to advise us of spectacular walks in the area.
