For some lively evening fun, explore the vibrant bars and nightclubs of Calle del Arsenal, less than 20 minutes away.

For a quiet moment of relaxation, step out onto our terrace, which boasts an outdoor pool with an ocean view, a separate pool for children, and multiple hot tubs. The shaded daybeds, pool chairs, and complimentary towels help you stay comfortable, and our beach bar can provide cold drinks whenever you’d like them.
