Some places instantly leave a lasting impression. La Finca Resort at Spain’s Costa Blanca is one of these places. We recently had an amazing workation at this beautiful resort nearby Alicante and fell in love straight away. From the moment we set foot inside La Finca Resort in Algorfa we just knew, we never want to leave again.
This blog was written by travel writer and Traveltomtom team member Ashley. She stayed at La Finca Resort in Algorfa, on behalf of Traveltomtom, and wrote this review blog about her experiences.
This resort is located at the Costa Blanca. It’s a 40 minute drive from both Alicante Airport and Murcia Airport. The small village of Algorfa is just a short drive away from the resort. This golf resort is the perfect place for those looking for an environment of peace and nature.
Of course it will be a bit busier in the summer, but you will not easily experience the real hustle and bustle here. It is the perfect base to explore the Costa Blanca. A wonderfully quiet location, but with many highlights within an hour's drive from the resort. After a long day exploring, there’s simply no better place to return back to. Finish the day with a round of golf or even more relaxed at the spa.

La Finca Resort is a beautiful 5* Golf & Spa Resort directly on the beautiful La Finca golf course. It’s a modern design hotel with very spacious rooms which all have a balcony. The hotel has a total of 117 rooms in several categories. They have Deluxe rooms, Club Vistas rooms and Club Superior Terraza rooms. Next to these rooms they also offer two types of suites, the Junior suite and the Royal suite.
During our stay we enjoyed staying in the Club View Room. It’s more spacious than the standard room, completely refurbished and beautifully designed. Each room has a balcony from which you can enjoy wonderful views of either the golf course or the gardens.
Views from our balcony included the golf course and the pool.
The bathroom has a separate shower cubicle in addition to the bath. A large king-size bed completes this wonderful room.
A stay at La Finca always includes buffet breakfast. Access to the outdoor swimming pool, gymnasium, tennis courts and paddle-tennis courts and free use of sports equipment (subject to availability) is also included with your stay at La Finca Resort in Algorfa.
The hotel offers free outdoor car park. They also have a covered car park, but rates apply for this one. Our experience is that their outdoor parking space offers sufficient space.
Their outdoor pool with the Balinese beds and sun beds definitely looks very inviting. I'm sure this pool is busy in the summer and the place to be.

I’m not sure if the hotel or the golf course was here first. Anyway, the combination with the beautiful surroundings is an absolute hit. An oasis of calm where golf lovers can enjoy the superb quality of its courses.
This magnificent golf course was designed by the renowned Spanish designer Pepe Gancedo, who was one of the standout amateur players in Spain. This course has wide and generous fairways with spectacular and unique greens, enabling the golfer to use his driver, whatever the handicap of the player.
The spectacular views all around this course makes it one of the best golf courses in Spain.
La Finca golf course has been the venue of several prestigious tournaments since its opening, such as the Junior European Championship, the Spanish Junior Championship and the finals of Audi Class and Audi Quattro circuits, for amateur golfers. At a professional level, La Finca golf course has hosted qualifying for the EPD Tour as well as the Valencian Community professional circuit.
As a guest at the hotel you can book some training sessions to get to know the golf sport a bit. We also had a clinic by Victor Andreu Jimenez, who gives golf classes at La Finca Resort. We literally had never hit a single golf ball before, but the lessons of Victor really did some magic. We also received a card with which we could hit 300 balls for some serious practice. Of course, we didn't become professional golfers in just a few hours, but we had a lot of fun and sometimes managed to hit a decent ball.
A hotel with a spa always is a plus for us! We love to spend some time relaxing in saunas, pools and wellness. La Finca Spa is the perfect place to relax for a few hours. You can relax through the power of water or experience multiple sensations with the best professional treatments. You can book several beauty treatments and massages.
Our personal favorite is the Spa Circuit. You enjoy a 90-min access to the Spa circuit which includes an indoor pool, Jacuzzi, waterfall, swan neck, bubble volcano, chromotherapy cabin, ice cabin, Finnish sauna, Turkish bath and cyclonic showers.
It’s an authentic spa experience which is all about taking care of yourself and being cared for.
Don't worry, you won't starve here. When it comes to food, this resort really has something for everyone. La Finca resort offers a true gastronomic experience in the different restaurants on site. The tradition of Mediterranean cuisine, combined with avant-garde cuisine with signature touches and international nuances. Guaranteed an explosion of flavor and delight!
Frijolino, our personal favorite! If you like Italian and Mexican food, don’t look any further! They offer a fusion of flavors of the traditional Italian and Mexican cuisine. The setting is modern, welcoming and cozy and most importantly, the food was amazing, so tasty.
La Finca Club House
After Frijolino our second favorite and highly recommended to have some lunch here during your stay. Located next to hole 18 of La Finca Golf Course. This makes it a favorite resting place for many golfers. It’s a unique space to rest and relax and take in the magnificent views of the golf course. They offer a tasty menu including salads, pizzas, sandwiches and burgers.
The Hub Food & Drink
The Hub is located in the main building where the hotel is located as well. It’s the core of the resort, from here you can access all facilities. It’s a casual place where sports is always shown on the televisions and a nice place to meet with friends.
A perfect place with a varied menu of snacks and drinks. The terrace is one of a kind with lovely pool views. It’s a wonderful place to have lunch or dinner.
Al Fresco Pool & Grill Bar
Al Freso Pool & Grill Bar is only open during the Summer season. When we visited this place was already closed for the season. But during Summer this place offers menu of healthy and juicy dishes. Cocktails or drinks are also served.
La Bodega de La Finca
A wine house at a golf course. Yes, it’s happening at La Finca Resort. You can find the best wines on the national and international scene at La Bodega de La Finca. It is located in the La Finca Club House building. You can attend local, national and international wine tastings, European, American, African, Australian, the wines come from everywhere.
Even though it’s all about the Golf Sport at La Finca, I can assure you there is much more to do than just golf. You can enjoy many other sports and sports facilities, such as cycling, tennis and paddle courts and soccer fields. You can even prepare your individual training plan at La Finca Sports.
