Dating from 1733, this former monastery is a few blocks from the harbor; there's nothing spartan about the former cells, which are now plush suites with all the trappings. The restaurant is in a large, vaulted hall (formerly the nuns' laundry), the baroque church is now a concert hall, and the cloister's gardens provide a peaceful refuge. Beam ceilings, polished marble floors, and huge brass lamps enhance the 18th-century feel.

A hire car would be useful, unless you are happy using taxis, as the beaches are all quite a way outside town. Otherwise we loved the place! Great hotel and an interesting town with a very Spanish feel to it.
