relaxing resort for summer in Greece or Spain

Jump to last reply

My wife and I are looking to have an unwinding and relaxing week of vacation together in Europe in early July.

We live in Chicago, are in our early 30s and active with no kids, but would be happiest in a place with a nice pool, beautiful views, and a quiet beach - in or near a town (or at a property) with great food. My focus is on finding a terrific hotel/resort in Greece or the Costa del Sol of Spain, and then planning a trip around that where we can spend time together and relax. While some sightseeing would be ok, that's not a priority.

It's hard to narrow down choices since names of towns in Greece and Spain are plentiful and not so familiar, and I'm still searching for a website that would help me choose. Of course money is always an object, I would not easily see us spending more than 300 Euros/night on accommodations.

Any great hotels in Greece or Spain resort towns, amazing experiences in such places, or website recommendations would be much appreciated.
