Tesoro Blu Hotel and Spa

You’ll feel like an A-list celebrity when you stay at the TUI Sensimar Tesoro Blu. With a smart infinity pool and design-led interiors, it’s a luxurious place for a break. Plus, because it’s reserved exclusively for adults, it’s always peaceful.

The hotel’s buffet restaurant serves international dishes. It comes with a roomy outdoor terrace that’s the perfect place to watch the sun dip below the horizon. There’s also a fine dining spot that specialises in Mediterranean cuisine.

After dinner, the hotel has a cocktail bar with a lengthy drinks list. A vocalist makes evenings musical and he’s joined by a guest singer once a week.
