The Arenas Del Mar is on the money with its pool scene – you can swim in a huge sea-facing number with a waterside bar. The restaurant deals in buffet-style dinners, and there's a bar in the lobby. Massages share top billing in the spa with a jet-lined pool.

FOOD & DRINK

Just so you can come prepared, there's a smart-casual dress code and men are asked to wear full-length trousers.
HEALTH & BEAUTY
Sign up for a couples' massage*, and you'll get a private candelit hot tub and a bottle of bubbly thrown in. The spa* also lines up an indoor pool with jets planted along one side.
The spa is well equipped, with a seawater therapy centre, thermal circuit, sauna, whirlpool bath, Turkish bath, aromatic showers and a float bath. There's plenty of massages and treatments to pick from, too.
Things feel a little nautical in the bar, thanks to giant hanging seashells and cartoon prints of starfish. The drinks menu reels off plenty of choice in the cocktail, beer and wine departments.
- Evening entertainment programme
The outdoor pool's got plenty going for it – it's neighbours with the Atlantic Ocean, and has loungers and a cocktail bar for company, too.
The outdoor saltwater pool sits in a palm-fringed terrace with plenty of sunbeds.
