Boutique Hotel?  What does that mean?  According to USA Today, “Boutique hotels are characterized by their intimate atmosphere and idiosyncratic style.

What is a Boutique Hotel?

So, what does “boutique hotel” actually mean?  According to USA Today, “Boutique hotels are characterized by their intimate atmosphere and idiosyncratic style. They distinguish themselves from larger chain hotels by offering personalized attention and styled accommodations which play on a motif.”

It’s a slightly sterile description, but one that basically sums up El Oceano.

The article then goes on to list a few details of what one might expect to find in a boutique hotel…

  • Size:  Our beachside hotel has 50 intimate rooms and suites, from our very affordable Non-Sea-View Rooms right up to the spectacular Penthouse Suites, not forgetting our self-catering Studio Apartments.  We have tried to create something to suit everyone, all with the unmistakable El Oceano feel.  We feel our accommodation sums up the very nature of a ’boutique’ hotel.
  • Individuality/Design/Character:   Our hotel has always been a beautiful place, but the redesign of 2016 has brought a breath of fresh air to our hotel, one which has not gone unnoticed by our guests!  A beautiful redesign of subtle duck-egg blue and pale tan shades, the redesign was coordinated by our very talented, in-house designer.  Her attention to detail and eye for aesthetics have made for one very special hotel.
  • Location:  This one is easy!  If we were any closer to the sea, your feet would be wet!  We are right on the beach.  The majority of our hotel rooms and suites have stunning Mediterranean views and the restaurant is surrounded by large windows, overlooking the sea.  From some tables, you might feel you were on the deck of a ship!
  • Service:  Time and time again, we have the very pleasant task of answering many hundreds of comments, reviews and questions on Facebook, TripAdvisor and other sites, the majority of which applauding the quality of our service.  We take our service to clients very seriously indeed.  We believe in a professional and attentive waiting team, but we curb this with a courteous distance.  If you want us, we’re there, if you don’t, we won’t bother you!
  • Gastronomy:  Some considerable time goes into planning our menus.  Our head chef and kitchen team and acutely aware of guests’ expectations and deliver on all fronts, with a mixture locally-sourced and specially imported ingredients.  Each dish is a work of art, an exquisite balance of flavours and presentation.  Our A la Carte menu will usually remain the same throughout each season, but we also prepare many menus for special events, Sundays and ‘Set Menu’ evenings.  The food needs to be right – and we think we get it right!
  • Clientele:  That’s you!  Our guests make us what we are.  You make us what we are.  Every decision taken by hotel management is made with our clientele in mind.

If today is the day to try El Oceano – and what day isn’t?! – get in touch!  We are here to help!
