Costa Blanca hotels make greatest efforts for any cyclist looking for fuss-free comfort.
It is a fact that the Costa Blanca has become key cycling destination. Many teams hold some of their training camps in the area every year, with a range of routes and climbs to train, with a climate that guarantees optimum cycling pleasure every day of the stay.
This cycling growth along certain routes of the Costa Blanca and the possibility of enjoying the best MTB routes have led many hotels to decide to adapt certain facilities to make them more cycling friendly. Here are some of the most amazing.
In these hotels for cyclists you will enjoy it…
- Hotel Cap Negret

- AR Diamante Beach & Spa
- Suitopia – Sol y Mar Suites Hotel
- Hotel Deloix Aqua Center
- Hotel los Álamos
- Hotel Bahía Calpe
- Hotel SH Villa Gadea

Hotel Cap Negret is an established name among cyclists. If we had to talk about a hotel designed by and for cyclists, Cap Negret would probably be one of the first that came to mind. It is not for nothing that it is certified Cycling Friendly Gold, which guarantees to own the best possible services for an idyllic stay.
Leaving the hotel on a route towards Coll de Rates, Guadalest, Sierra de Bernia, Coll de Rates, Cuevas del Canelobre or Tudons, among other iconic sites that we have seen so many times in the Vuelta a España and that are never missing in the training camps of the professional teams.
In Benidorm we highlight the iconic Hotel Don Pancho, an imposing 256-room establishment with a large terrace overlooking the sea that you can almost touch with your bare hands. Just 100m from Levante beach. It has a heated outdoor pool, three strategically located hotel bars, a buffet restaurant, gym, Thai massage service, and even live entertainment every night.
And if you visit the Cycling Centre you will be amazed by its design and space. Your bike’s set-up is guaranteed, and from there you can head for the Serra d’Oltà, the Carrasqueta, Coll de Rates, the Sierra de Bernia, Tudons… or wherever your heart takes you (although don’t overdo, you’ll have to come back later…).
Located in Calpe, the AR Diamante Beach Spa is a 4-star hotel certified Cycling Friendly Silver. It has hosted UCI cycling teams on several occasions, both ProTour and Continental, which has made it one of the benchmarks to welcome professional cyclists and those who wish to enjoy a cycling holiday on the Costa Blanca. They also hosted the Costa Blanca Bike Race, one of the major MTB events of the year in the Valencian Community.
With over 2000 m of multifunctional space, this hotel has everything you need for a perfect cycling holiday. It owns 285 very spacious rooms, a terrace, a pool, Spa and Cycling Center to fine-tuning your bicycle and an assisted biomechanics room. We can also benefit from its gym and in addition they offer treatment and massage services at the hotel.
Undoubtedly one of the benchmark hotels for athletes who want to enjoy Calpe and the Costa Blanca.
Another 4 star hotel where we are guaranteed a 10 star stay is the Suitopía – Sol y Mar Suites Hotel. Located in Calpe and Cycling Friendly Silver certified. Opened in 2017, this hotel has 232 very spacious rooms (in fact, the vast majority are 75 m2, which says a lot about comfort).
Despite its short history, this hotel has already hosted cycling teams such as Quick Step, Astana and Total Direct Energies. Perhaps due to its 700 m Thalasso Spa, with a saltwater pool and 8 massage cabins. Or the Cycling Center. Or the full gym with state-of-the-art machines. Or its gastronomic offer. Or because they know how to take care of the cyclist.
Whatever the reason, what is clear is that from the Hotel Suitopía – Sol y Mar Suites we can enjoy the routes to Tudons, Parcent, Coll de Rates, Bernia or the Cumbre del Sol.
Also located in Benidorm, we can enjoy our cycling holidays on the Costa Blanca at the Hotel Deloix Aqua Center. This 4-star hotel is located in a quiet area of Benidorm, away from crowds and in a location that allows easy connection with routes to Serra Gelada, Coll de Rates, Tudons, Alto de Aitana or Carrasqueta.
This hotel has a family atmosphere and owns 194 spacious rooms equipped with everything you need. Nor does it fall short with pools either: up to 5, with 2 indoors and heated with pressure jets, bubble baths, jacuzzi… after your bike ride, a nice relaxing bath might be the ideal spot to refresh yourself.
Of course, you can leave your bike safely in its Cycling Center, with a workshop service, bike rental, washing station, picnic…
