A millionaire's playground, Marbella is a glittering hub of beautiful people, luxury and decadence, and just outside it, a short drive from the pretty coastline, is the Villa Padierna Palace Hotel. Earning an exceptional six star rating at the World Travel Awards, and voted 'Best Spa Hotel in Spain' by Spa World Magazine, it's the ideal place to go for an indulgent and relaxing break.

The hotel's own exclusive Beach Club is a short shuttle ride away, making a relaxing day by the sea an easy option.This offer includes a five or seven-night break in a choice of Suite, with breakfast included. Flights and private transfers are included.

The place where dreams live. Or so says the Hotel Villa Oniria, located in the centre of Granada city but with a magical, secret air. Housed in a 19th century mansion, and surrounded by courtyards where the sound of the bursting fountains fall, the hotel is a twinkle-tastic and elegant affair.Pervading charm and grace, national treasure and designer Pascua Ortega has ensured total serenity in each of the 31 rooms. He has cleverly played with the light, casting both warmth and shadows alike and creating secret spaces. Restored to true traditional Andalusian style, the beauty of the hotel is truly captivating. An element of note is the inner patio with gushing water features, the gentle hue of lanterns and a fine dining area.Complete with majestic flavours in the restaurant and a spa whose central theme is the essence of water and its healing properties (including an incredible hot spring bath), the Villa Oniria may very well live up to its title as a dream maker. Dreams aside, the hotel is a fine place indeed as your base to exploring the beautiful city of Granada.To find out what's included, please see the offer details below.

Hesperia Tower stands at no less than 107 metres tall and is one of Barcelona's most iconic buildings. Designed by Richard Rogers, whose work includes the Millennium Dome, Paddington Waterside and Old Billingsgate Market, it opened its doors in 2006 as a five-star luxury hotel. Inside and out this landmark building exudes style and contemporary sophistication, with a pristine spa, a bistro, a stylish restaurant and a collection of chic bedrooms.Sticking with the architecture theme, be sure to visit some of Gaudi's most impressive works while you're here - namely the breathtaking Basílica de la Sagrada Família, the mosaic reptiles of Park Güell and the wobbly walls of La Pedrera. Barcelona itself is great for exploring on foot, so hop onto Hesperia Tower's complimentary shuttle bus to the centre of town to begin your day of discovery (service subject to availability and timetable).It's not just architects who are drawn to Barcelona's vibrancy - great names in art have spent time under the city's influence too and the Museu Picasso houses some rarely seen works from this former resident's early years. Visit Els Quatre Gats and imagine Salvador Dali here, chatting about his latest piece before you head back to Hesperia Tower to spend the night in your very own masterpiece.

...off the coast of Africa. The Canary Islands are classed as a part of Spain and are the result of volcanic eruptions. Lanzarote is just 37 miles long and 12 miles wide.
We knew the Island was going to be Volcanic but hadn't anticipated quite how spectacular it would look. During our transfer from the airport we got a taster of what...
Advantages: Plenty to see, especially if you like vulcanology and Manrique! Disadvantages: Pity it rhymes with 'grotty' cos it isn't
...yardstick for island measuring - perhaps I should invent a new unit called the IOW or Vectis, so that would bring Lanzarote out at '2.3 Vectii'. Just don't get me started on Australia.
WHERE IS IT?
Lanzarote is one of the inhabited chain of Canary Islands, which, whilst technically part of Spain, sits off the Moroccan coast in the Atlantic, some way south of Madeira. Lanzarote is the closest to...

Review of Lanzarote (Spain)
Advantages: A fantastic holiday for people of all ages Disadvantages: None at all - i love the place!!
...If your looking for sun, sea, sand and sangrias for your hols this year but your on a 'credit crunch' style budget then Lanzarote may be the one for you! I have visited Lanzarote twice, once as a child and once in October last year and have fallen in love with the place. We stayed in Playa De Los Pocilos which is a small quiet town just outside the main capital of Puerto Del Carmen which is...
