Terraced into a hillside above Canico’s waterfront, this grand hotel looks out across the Atlantic. The two pools get some of the best views in the house. And across the road, you’ll find a pebble beach. The décor has an air of Victorian chic, from the plush lobby to the two restaurants. There’s a spa, too, while the bar teams classic cocktails with live shows. The centre of Canico is only a 10-minute drive away.
