Ask the staff and they'll tell you that chamarel means a "mixture of colors," and this hotel, built as a grand family home in 1840, is certainly a genial blend of styles, cultures, periods, and personalities. Public spaces can be a little dark, but there's a tranquil interior courtyard, lush and green, where you can enjoy a drink. Suites have four-poster beds, beamed ceilings, spacious bathrooms, and the original tile floors. A suite in back is perfect for a family.
The staff happily arranges museum visits, activities at the port, and wedding parties with flamenco performances.
