The Gran Hotel Atlantis Bahia Real Hotel was built before surfing was a such a popular global sport, or kitesurfing had even been invented. As a result this traditional and rather lovely 5 star hotel and spa has unexpectedly found itself sitting directly overlooking the perfect 500m+ point break on Los Lobos island, and Flag Beach a world class kitesurfing spot. The hotel is a diamond in the rough, with not a huge number of reasons to explore out if your not wave hunting, but frankly there is enough on offer with hotels facilities and five restaurants to keep you occupied. Dinner requires trousers not shorts, and no open shoes. Not really surfer orientated but if you don’t mind dressing up then the food is excellent, and you can always order room service if you want to keep it toned down. Half the hotel is adults only in the spa area, the other half is very well set up for families and children with multiple pools and play areas, so if your looking for a romantic break or a family trip it caters well to both. Private childcare is €12 an hour.
