Our favourite rooms
The Junior Suites and Family Suites are closest to the beach, plus they're spacious and child-friendly, sleeping two adults and either one or two little ones. Most have an outdoor space, be it a small terrace or balcony. Some rooms have rainfall showers, others have handheld showers over the bath (better for babies). All are all-white with lots of wood, pebbles and other natural materials, plus quirky contemporary details such as hip recycled bedside lamps, geometric tiling or pops of colour on a feature wall.
The crisp outdoor freeform pool is all-white concrete flanked by a little all-white bar shaded by a white straw pergola. There’s a separate Jacuzzi and a little raised pool, perfect for toddlers (the deep part of the main pool is 1.3m). Neither pool is heated but they’re manned by a lifeguard from June to September and open 24/7. You can buy floats and armbands for little swimmers at the mini-market, five minutes away on foot.
The Ekies Spa is pint-sized and perfect, nestled outdoors among lush green, pine-scented gardens. There are two open-sided treatment cabanas set under white wooden rafters; one is roomy enough for a couples' massage. Book a deep-tissue or hot-stone massage using natural Apivita products before rejuvenating with a blast under the pebble-walled alfresco shower (open 10am-6pm May-Sept and 9am-2pm plus 5pm-9pm June, July and August). Below the pool and hidden behind a little white fence is a basic outdoor gym with treadmills and exercise bikes – or you can join a poolside yoga session (€70 an hour; book on arrival), to complete your all-natural detox.
This stripped-back resort is all about low-key beach life and relaxing as a family; if your kids are all-action adventurers, get a hire car to give you flexibility and independence.
Book everything from babysitting to bicycles, spa treatments to sailboats at least two days in advance (perhaps a little longer in high season, if you don't want to miss out).
Small dogs (up to 15kg) are welcome at no extra charge. Just let the hotel know when booking.
