El Marqués Hotel Boutique
The restored 17th-century house of the El Marqués Hotel Boutique offers guests comfort and service in an elegant colonial atmosphere. The air-conditioned rooms open onto a three-sided courtyard, which holds a lush garden and space for relaxation and dining. Along the fourth side of the garden is the hotel's outdoor pool surrounded by sun loungers and palm trees.
The guest rooms themselves are decorated in white and neutral colors, maintaining many of their original architectural features alongside modern amenities such as cable television, Wi-Fi access, and iPod docks. The large bathrooms are tiled with marble, and offer products from L'Occitane en Provence.
The spa offers massages, facials, body treatments and more. The hotel sustains business relationships with many tour agencies in the area and can organize yacht rentals, city tours and bike rentals. Dance, yoga and Pilates classes can also be arranged at the guests' request.
