Originally opened in 1929 in the beautiful city of Cádiz, Spain, the Hotel Atlántico (a.k.a Parador de Cádiz), reopened its doors once again last September after a massive renovation, right on time to welcome all country representatives attending the Iberoamerican Summit 2012. (I was told King Juan Carlos I of Spain stayed here).
This emblematic establishment went through a complete transformation (click on photo to enlarge and see slideshow). The exquisite use of space, shapes, light, and materials such as stone, glass, wood, marble, and steel now give common areas as well as the 124 rooms an avant-garde and super-sleek feeling.
Natural light seeps in through every angle, and the ocean can be seen from almost anywhere (the rooms, the restaurants, the lobby, etc.), but the swimming pool and spa area is where guests enjoy the best panoramic views onto the bay of Cádiz.
Hotel Atlántico is only 10 minutes away from some of the best restaurants and cafés in Cadiz’ historic centre and five minutes from the beach, which makes it an ideal location to explore this extremely picturesque Andalusian city.
