Not far from the center of the Old Town, this grand resort on the beach combines spacious and beautiful rooms (most with terrace or balcony) with tropical gardens on the grounds. It is a chain hotel, but the Meliã group is one of Spain’s best, and this particular property has hosted innumerable movie stars and royalty over the years. Live music and other shows are put on every night during the summer—when the resort insists on a 5-night minimum stay.
