Our favourite rooms
Ground-floor rooms have beach and pool access, so you can pretend you’re not in a hotel at all; room 34, a Junior Suite, is at the end of the row so feels the most private. Room 71, a Loft Suite, is an open-plan space that gets plenty of natural light. If you’re planning on spending lots of time in your room, book room 59, the One-Bedroom Duplex Suite: its bed is very round, and very big.
The hotel’s original 1929 salt-water swimming pool is as glamorous as ever, flanked by white-parasol-shaded loungers, and is open every day from 9am–7pm. Guests also have access to pools at three neighbouring hotels.
Bring your most elegant resort wear… and ladies, remember a headscarf and sunglasses if you’ve got your heart set on a chic coastal-road drive.
Welcome. Extra beds (free for under-12s, otherwise €125 a night) and cots (free) can be added to parents’ rooms for under-12s; babysitting is available for €20 an hour.
