Top tips for finding the perfect Spain hotel
While beach resorts and coastal hotels in Spain often have an on-site pool, this is less common at inland hotels in cities such as Madrid or Zaragoza. If you prefer a hotel with a pool, especially during Spain’s hot summer months, it is a good idea to check this before you book. For Madrid hotels with a pool, some options include the Hotel Nuevo Boston and the Melia Barajas.
If you love swimming in the sea, the Costa del Sol has fantastic beaches with generally calm, safe water for ocean swimming. Coastal resorts like Benidorm and Calpe have plenty of great seaside hotels, like the Hotel Cimbal or the Gran Hotel Sol y Mar. Perfect if you want to get out of bed and jump straight in the water.
