Our favourite rooms
For its natural light, privacy-affording terrace and views of Es Salobrar, we like Room 14. We’re fans of Room 22 too, for its wooden beams, space and secluded terrace. It also mixes up the hotel’s neutral colour palette with artworks in bold shades of burnt orange (painted by one of the owners’ daughters).
Two: the thermal pool in the atmospheric old spa, and an unheated outdoor pool with Jacuzzis and day-beds.
Don’t forget your spa gear to try out waters that have been soothing people since the Romans; save room for some tins of local sea salt – way better than a souvenir thimble.
Font Santa’s spa makes much of the thermal waters that spring from underground aquifers at a balmy 38ºC. They’re a mineral-rich cocktail of sodium and chlorine salts magnesium, calcium, sulphur, potassium and more.
This is one for the grown-ups; no under-16s allowed.
