If the palm oasis has drawn you to Elche, then you would be nuts to stay anywhere else. This hotel colony of duplex and triplex bungalows sits in the middle of the Huerta del Cura (Priest’s Grove), the most beautiful part of the palm forest. Amid the palms are tropical and subtropical fruit trees and flowers, and a winding path of red slates connects the various buildings with patios to sit out and enjoy the beauty and tranquility. Rooms were recently redecorated in a sleek, contemporary styling with a neutral beige, brown, and slate palette. The on-site restaurant, Els Capellans, features contemporary Mediterranean cuisine.
