The Ocean Room is the main part of the restaurant, the part you will see as you walk in to the hotel.  Large glass walls look right on to the beach and the Mediterranean sea offering almost panoramic views, which (on appropriate weather days) are fully opened giving an impression of being right on the sea!  A bright and spacious room, the Oceano Room Restaurant is open every day for lunch and dinner.

The Ocean Room is where most dining entertainment takes place, with small stage and dancing area.

The Veranda is a little apart from The Ocean Room, with glass walls giving the impression of hanging over the overlooking the sea. It’s a great place for breakfast!

Right next to the beach, dinner is served each evening in the Veranda Restaurant, a glass enclosed dining room seemingly suspended over the ocean.  The views will take your breath away!


The Waterfront Terrace


Right on the water, the terrace restaurant is a beautiful place to eat al-fresco.

The Terrace is outside and hosts entertainment during the summer months. But on The Terrace, it’s about the open sea. The Terrace is right on the beach, with private pool, pool bar and most importantly, the beautiful sunny Spanish sky. Perfect.
