The ´Villas Turisticas´ hotels were built over thirty years ago and have gone through various changes in management ever since, from government ownership to private and mixed management. They are worth a special mention and their own category, as they are a different type of hotel altogether.
They were designed as tourist complexes, rather than just hotels. The vast majority have large swimming pools and great childrens facilities, making them perfect for families. They are large, rural, have easy car access and parking and provide comfortable accommodation at a good value.
