DESIGN HOTELS™ – HOSPES MARICEL & SPA.
The building that today houses Hospes Maricel & Spa has a glamorous past. Spectacularly cascading down to the Mediterranean Sea, it was built in the late 1940s and used to host decadent parties for the rich and the famous. These days, the pace is more relaxed. Guests are invited to sit in one of the deep, comfortable wicker armchairs on the terrace and enjoy a drink with their feet up or enjoy a massage to the soothing sounds of the ocean in one of the stone arched caves built into the rock face beneath the main house. In 2008, a second structure was added to the original building, with 22 eco-friendly rooms, each of which features gorgeous native stone walls, parquet floors and its own plunge pool.
