Hostal Loreto is in the centre of the old city of Denia, close to many good restaurants and shops. It is rumoured that there is a secret tunnel to the castle on the hill top behind the hotel. The hotel was formerly a nunnery and was built by the Marques de Campo about 450 years ago. It is 600 metres from the beach and has 41 recently renovated rooms, mainly en-suite. There are activities to suit everyone in and around Denia, including golf, sailing, scuba diving, kite surfing, jet skiing, mountain biking, and climbing. However some people come just to enjoy the 12 kilometres of beautiful beaches! Denia is close to the airports of Alicante, Valencia and Murcia. It is an old port with ferry services to Ibiza and the Balearics.
