Throughout the life of this blog, we have spoken from capsule, boutique or art-related hotels to thematic hotels, under the sea or luxury. It seems common to define the category of hotels. Even so, we have never made special mention of the sun and beach hotels even though they are the ones we know best.
Recently, Trivague has published, as it has been doing for the last five years, a ranking of the hotels sun and beach with better reputation online. In this post we will discuss this top 10 highlighting what makes them peculiar.
