Hotel Puente Romano is a coastal resort built in the style of an Andalusian village, with white washed walls and colourful bougainvilleas - and the blissful addition of a Six Senses Spa.
The luxury property boasts 264 bedrooms and suites, all of which are in keeping the light and airy charm of Andalusian style, with balconies and views of beautiful architecture. The Al-Andalus building is at the heart of the hotel surrounding a Roman Square, of which the rooms center around.
Gluttony thy name is Puente Romano - with a vast array of restaurants to chose from, this hotel is every foodie's paradise. Indulge in fresh-off-the-line seafood, grilled to perfection over glowing charcoal at Sea Grill, or enjoy hearty Italian cuisine and fine wines at Serafina. The Plaza Village is the perfect spot to enjoy a range of cuisines, from Arabian, to Japanese to Italian, or perhaps indulge in the fine dining menu at Dani Garcia restaurant - adorned with two Michelin stars, no less. BiBo by Dani Garcia offers a tapas menu for light bites, or opt for UNI, with its unique fusion of Japanese and Peruvian cuisine, to be enjoyed with sake and pisco sours, naturally.
The resort is in a great beach front location, allowing guests the freedom to explore the long stretches of sand by foot or an evening run perhaps. Along with a range of water sports available, the real deal clincher is the MC Sports yacht which is available to guests for private charter. Back at the hotel there are three outdoor swimming pools, of which one is kept heated all year round, and there are great poolside bars. For a more active pace the hotel's tennis club is the place to go for a knock about, and is one of the best in Europe having hosted international tournaments.
After all that activity, there is no better spot to relax and unwind that the spoiling Six Senses Spa, new for 2015. 100% Organic products are used for face and body treatments, with a focus on indigenous herbs, sea salt, olive oil and minerals for a truly Mediterranean spa experience.
Hotel Puente Romano is a family friendly hotel and therefore they have a particularly good kid's club, offering a range of arts and crafts, games (indoor and outdoor) and tennis lessons. The little ones also go on guided walks on the beach to collect shells, which can later be made in to jewelry or art work, or simply be taken home as a souvenir.
You can feel like a tennis pro at the hotel's tennis club which was under the former management of Bjorn Borg.
