Hotels with Pools

With so many beautiful beaches, you will never be short of a place to swim. However sometimes, you just want to take a dip the minute you wake-up, or just before you go for dinner and a trip to the beach doesn’t seem all that practical.

The Playa San Sebastian Beach is located in the heart of Sitges right in San Sebastian. The hotel has a pretty pool with hydrotherapy jets to soothe thoes aches and hangovers away. Perfectly secluded it is ideal to while away an afternoon without the hussle and bussle of the beach hawkers or the Sunday crowds.

Luxury in Sitges – True Style

Luxury in Sitges

We recently received an email from two gay boys planning their forthcomming honeymoon. They wanted to have a honeymoon-to-remember, “something different, spectacular and memorable”.

They were definite on two points! 1. They wanted to stay in Sitges. 2. They wanted a 5-Star holiday. Now that we had their requirements, we set about putting together a dream holiday to remember….the highlights of which made it to the blog.

1. First, where to stay?

There really is only one option for those seeking true luxury in Sitges and that is the 5 Star Dolce Sitges resort. Although it is a bit far out of town, the service, views and atmosphere make the journey more than worth it. Note that this resort is not Gay, but very gay friendly.

Dolce Sitges

The Dolce commands magnificent views over the golf course, the Mediterranean coast and this famous seaside town. Each of the hotels 263 rooms are beautifully designed with the latest amenities and incorporate terraces that offer coastal or pool views.

The two restaurants of the Dolce Sitges Hotel, the Verema and Esmarris offer superb Mediterranean cuisine and the opportunity to enjoy some terrace dining whilst taking in the exotic surroundings. The Malvasia Bar is great for pre-party cocktails or late-night nightcaps with that special someone.

The leisure facilities at the Hotel Dolce Sitges are superb and include four outdoor pools, fitness centre, indoor pool with spa centre including massages, sauna and beauty treatments…. perfect for the morning-after treatments! You have to look good in Organic after all!

From November to March, Dolce offers a special weekend rate of EUR 182.00 per person for two nights, including breakfast.

2. Something Really Memorable

The boys had never been sailing. Yachting around Sitges is one of the most popular activities during the summer. Whilst swimming in the sea you can view the amazing Yachts sail in and out of the bay. Sitges has a beautiful port and the surrounding Mediterranean coastline is truly spectacular. Stopping off for lunch at the little beaches of Cubelles or Cubit is a must.

Charter Yacht

There are several charter companies in the port area, all offering excellent service and full skipper services if required. We recommend Azul Sailing. for 2 reasons. First off, the staff are multi-lingual and secondly, you can skipper the entire Yacht yourself (provided you are qualified of course). Go for the Bavaria 50 Cruiser “New Dream” if you have the cash to splash.

3. Culture

The boys wanted to experience some unique Spanish culture away from the major tourist spots. They were also interested in wine. The Torres Vineyard immediately sprang to mind. Visiting in July can mean long-queues thoug as the winery can get exteremely busy at that time of year. So we opted for Spain's answer to Tuscany, the charming town of Priorat.


If you haven't heard of Priorat yet, you soon will. Home to some of the most expensive wines in Spain, this idyllic region has also become home to some of Europe's most notable celebrities.

Together with the stunning views of the Montsant natural park, there is the Moorish castle and Romanesque church at Siruana. History buffs with an interest in the Spanish Civil War can visit the sites of the Battle of the River Ebro, one of the most important and decisive of the war.

Of course the real reason to visit Priorat is for the wine. “Expensive, delicious and worth every penny”, was how the boys rated the trip on their return.

4. The Finishing Touch

The rest of the holiday was spent lounging by the pool, soaking up the sun on the gay beach and partying the night away in the many local bars and clubs. The finishing touch on the final night was a beautiful meal in one of Sitges most infamous of restaurants, La Fragata located at the very beginning of Passeo Ribera. (Telephone: +34 93 8941086)
