Pez Espada Hotel

With live shows every night and an enviable beach-front location, the Pez Espada Hotel is a great option for people who enjoy endless activities and a spot of luxury.

Many traditional touches and nods to the past remain to this day, including marble floors and columns. The Pez Espada sits right next to the promenade, with the chic marina only a five-minute walk away. You can also reach the Spanish quarter in a couple of minutes.
