For brilliant beaches, buzzing clubs and enticing architecture, you can't beat holidays to Lloret de Mar. The town has two beaches that stretch out for almost three kilometres, and their soft sands and clear waters are ideal for sunbathing, snorkelling and diving. Both the beaches have Blue Flag status and a collection of restaurants and bars that specialise in happy hour drinks and fresh seafood. The centre of Lloret de Mar is an eclectic combination of modern bars and traditional architecture, and there are gorgeous ruins to explore on the outskirts.
With free access to a waterpark and two huge pools, the Oasis Park Hotel is perfect for family holidays. There are restaurants, bars and shops just seconds away from the hotel, while the town's two beaches are a short 15-minute walk away. However, all the action happens at the hotel. There's an on site spa with its own plunge pool, and the whirlpool has a night sky ceiling giving you a beautiful view of the stars. Children can join the fun-filled kids' club, and try their hand at sports like archery.
The adults-only Augusta Club prides itself on its luxurious, tranquil retreats. Guests can enjoy the outdoor pool and its waterside bar, as well as an indoor pool in the spa. The spa itself has everything from a small gym to saunas and stream rooms, as well as indulgent treatments like thermal mud massages. There's also beach yoga and pilates to participate in. The beach is a 10-minute walk away, with plenty of bars and restaurants en route. During the evenings, expect live music and DJ sets.
Anabel Hotel is your go-to spot if you want to be close to Lloret de Mar's nightlife, but not be in the middle of it. With its homely atmosphere, the hotel is situated on the outskirts of the town so you can easily walk in. Plus, it's only five minutes away from the beach. There's plenty to do on site too, from rejuvenating in the spa and gym to trying dance classes and watching the fun evening entertainment. There's also a great kids' club, complete with a mini disco and cooking lessons.
Situated in a peaceful part of Lloret de Mar, the Aquarium and Spa Hotel offers the best of both worlds. You're a five-minute walk to the town's beaches and bars, without being in the lively town centre. The rooms are modern and tastefully decorated, with wood panelling and nautical art throughout. There are two pools: one is outdoors with plenty of sun-loungers and a snack bar. The other is indoors as part of the luxury spa. The restaurant serves international cuisine, while live shows are performed at the bar every night.
