If you’re looking for a couples retreat or just want to get away with friends, then adult only hotels could be the way forward. Adult only hotels offer a chilled out atmosphere, where you can enjoy grown up company. As these hotels are solely focused on adults, it generally means you get a high quality range of cuisine as well as entertainment which is targeted for an older audience. If you are looking to get away from it all and enjoy some adult company then I’d certainly recommend considering an adult only hotel.
I’ve picked out 2 great hotels in Spain to give you an idea of what you can expect from an adults only holiday.
This month the Riu San Francisco is becoming completely renovated into a new over 18’s hotel. The hotel, which was originally opened in 1953, is being updated with a new sleek, modern design. The hotel is located in the ideal location of Playa De Palma in Majorca, meaning it benefits from the beautiful white sandy beaches and is within walking distance of the lovely city of Palma. The San Francisco is great for couples looking to relax and enjoy both the city and beach, as well as any groups that might want to sample Majorca’s grown up nightlife. The hotel is literally footsteps away from the beachfront (10m to be exact) and if that’s not for you, there is a swimming pool which faces the coast. The hotel has free WiFi in all areas and has a shiny new gym and wellness centre, complete with complementary Jacuzzi and Hammam (additional treatments available at additional costs). The hotel offers a half board basis and has a buffet style restaurant with food that has been highly recommended by previous guests. This hotel is bound to be popular this summer, particularly with the new plush design and additional features.
Set within the Playa Del Ingles resort of Gran Canaria, the Riu Don Miguel hotel offers a peaceful and comfortable retreat in the sun. It has also been given a fresh refurbishment and the rooms are decorated to a high standard. One of the great things about this adults only hotel is that it offers a relaxed atmosphere, yet is within close distance to all of the excitement of Playa del Ingles and Masapalomas, which has plenty of nightlife, restaurants and beaches to explore. The Masapalomas sand dunes are a great day trip, and fun if you hire quad bikes! Those looking for some nightlife will find that the Kasbah Centre has plenty of choice, with top names such as Pascha, Cream and the Ministry of Sound residing here. So enough about what’s outside of the hotel, inside the hotel there is a shiny new a’la carte restaurant called Body’s where you can eat all of your evening meals. For those who don’t want to spend all day by the pool (I don’t include myself here) there is a new gym which is available to all guests. Speaking of the pool, the sun loungers around the swimming pool are really comfy, ideal for staying cool whilst sunbathing!
So what do you say, are you tempted to go adult only?
