Our favourite rooms
We loved Room 205 for the terrific tiles in its bathroom: white but with bright blue splatterings only an angry person with a brush could produce. Its terrace isn’t bad, either – vast, with a spectacular view out to sea. The nautically styled classic rooms are smaller but their sea views just as impressive.
The tree encircled pool is at the heart of the hotel, with wooden decking and rocky path down to the sea. As well as a hot tub, there’s an assortment of terraces, both sun-drenched and shady. A heated pool awaits inside, too.
Aquarium – the marine-themed spa – has ocean-green tiles, an emerald heated pool and coral sculptures, along with white treatment rooms containing paintings of green seahorses – it’s like being under the sea. Treatments include thalassotherapy and hydromassage.
Deck shoes, striped things and an oversized straw hat.
If the waves are over 1.7 metres high, the Beach Club will be closed in the interest of safety.
Baby cots are free for under-twos; extra beds are €80 a night for three to 12 year olds and €100 a night for kids aged 13 and older. Ask three days in advance and a nanny can babysit for €15 an hour.
