The growing necessity for the Spanish tourism industry to specialise in the different range of clients, has led to the definition of a number of hotel typologies that in some cases is not applied in the practise. it is frequent that many hotel chains confuse adults only hotels with hotels for couples, when, in reality, they represent two different types of accommodation.
A good hotel for couples can be recognised because it is easily replaceable with the expression romantic hotels. They are spaces designed to relax with your partner, rest and enjoy the unique moments in which the couple is the protagonist. This is why they are located in destinations where the leisure and culture complementary offer is adapted to their needs: cinema, quiet restaurants, outdoor experiences to enjoy with your partner, less crowded beaches…
The hotel services must be consistent with the environment designed do the relaxation of two persons. Therefore, a good couples hotel should include in its offer a spa with saunas, jacuzzis, hydromassage baths, its own a la carte restaurant or with special dinners, a good wine cellar and a select cocktail and gin card, as well as small details in the room.
While much of this may sound like clichés, it only responds to the demand of such typology: a hotel for couples should have a calm ambience, with cozy spaces and chill out areas where guests can enjoy sunsets, small theme parties, the discrete attentions of the staff, the freedom of being away from routine for a few days. Summing it up, an escapade for two.
Adults Only Hotels, however, only ensure an environment for persons over 16, that does not necessary have to be orientated for couples but can perfectly be focused on friends group holidays or for the client of a business hotel that searches a quiet hotel, with individual rooms, conference rooms and state of the art technology.
Both modalities share things in common but, those looking to surprise their partner with a night in a romantic hotel should know that a hotel for couples will match better what they are looking for.
