Playabella SPA Gran Hotel Review

Part of the Spanish Senator chain, this colorful and busy hotel pairs a beachfront location with spacious, bright, and functional rooms. Built in the colonial style round a central patio with large pool and tropical palms, it's a favorite with families in the summer and tour groups in the autumn. Every room has a terrace overlooking the pool patio or beach. Good-value offers aimed at families are available online. Because the hotel closes at variable dates in the winter, check in advance if you're visiting between November and April.
