What a find! The Bay comes pretty darn close to boutique chic while still keeping prices relatively low. The thoughtfully decorated rooms (bright pillows, fresh tropical flowers, pristine white linen and arty wall hangings) are arranged on two floors around a white-walled courtyard. Don't miss the seaside restaurant and pool out the back.

Half board is available for €20 extra per person. There's yoga on the beach and a pampering spa.
