Abora Continental by Lopesan

Refurbished in the summer of 2018, the Abora Continental by Lopesan was formerly known as the Ifa Continental Hotel. With a sandy beach only a couple of minutes’ walk away, the revamped Abora Continental by Lopesan is ideally positioned close to bars and a shopping arcade. It offers a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, plus there are tropical palm gardens and a delightful pool area to enjoy. In fact, the hotel is home to two large pools. Both contain waterfalls and whirlpool baths that are perfect for rest and recuperation away from the lively main resort, which really comes alive during the evenings. If you like to stay active, the hotel offers basketball, football and volleyball matches, and there are also opportunities to take part in rifle shooting and shuffleboard.
