A very convenient centre for getting to know the area. Close to small towns with pleasant 'dining'and 'coffe' squares and typically Spanish. Very friendly locals.

City review

Real de Gandia is not 'resort' Spain; it's closer to 'real' Spain. Don't expect hot and cold running English speakers! That reality can mean better value in shops and restaurants although you must be sure to acquaint yourself with local dishes! It is also likely that you will encounter Valencian as the first language. If people are asking for 'Birra' rather than Cerveza, it's Valencian!

Coast review

It is a lovely coast and without the curse of overdevelopment that you encounter further south. Playa de Gandia is a holiday resort but it is on 'human'scale; the restaurants tend to be family-run and they give a sense of caring. The sea is clean and the beaches are patrolled.

Oliva in general has wonderful beaches, friendly people, good shops but not too commercialised. Oliva is not far from Gandia and there is much to see and do. Places of historic interest,fiestas, activities for young and old. The countryside is also stunning. Last but not least there are some great places to eat.

Coast review

Fantastic clean beaches warm sea even in October! loved Oliva and Gandia, and had a great time in the city of Valencia. Its really worth visiting the Park Oceanografic and other places along the Turia river bed, eg Opera House etc.

The city has all the commodities but has no tourism interest.

The sand beaches are large, clean and pleasant despite the industrial environment. The beaches have accesses and parkings which make easy to reach them.

Cullera was a nice little city. We went to Valencia and Gandia for dinning (those days where we didn't eat at the terrace watching the sunset and the beautiful view).

Coast review

Many beaches to chose between. Not that crowded and the sea was friendly to children.

City review

Obviously the system here thinks we would prefer Betera, but we were advised by the owner's daughter that Betera is the more sleepy town while L'Eliana would be more to our liking. So I can't say much about Betera, but L'Eliana is indeed very nice and well worth the 10 minutes by car. This property is located not in Betera, but in a suburb to Betera, probably like a 5 minutes drive. There was a probability that another 3 of our family would have joined which included their 6 year old daughter. It would not have made a difference: It's a nice safe area.

Coast review

We weren't looking for beach time so we never went there. Pool was great and we didn't feel like driving just for the beach.

Very nice place, didn't have time to look at all the sights but was there primarily to relax. Enjoyed the holiday and food greatly and the place was fantastic.

Coast review

Not too sure as I didn't go to the coast, took the alternative and stayed in the pool at the villa.

Gandia is a lovely old Spanish coastal town with a seafront area where there is a really quaint French quarter and marina with lovely boats - a really relaxing spot. The main town of Gandia is set a little back inland from the sea-front area and is nice with some lovely old buildings, good restaurants and bars. Plenty of shops about too including chains and supermarkets if you need them.

Coast review

I stayed in Mareyns De Rafelcaid, a mile or so from Gandia town. Mareyns is a nice area, very quite and peaceful with its own sandy beach, great if you have young kids. It is a short dirve into Gandia - just 5 minute really.
