Spain ranks as one of the top tourist destinations in the world and it’s easy to see why. The laid back Spanish lifestyle combined with sunny days and great cuisine makes for an enjoyable holiday whether you’re lazing by the beach or off sightseeing.
Its tremendous history, reflected in its prehistoric cave paintings, Moorish palaces, crumbling castles, Roman ruins, Gothic and Renaissance cathedrals, is proudly embraced and combines with an infectious, go-ahead dynamism. Moreover, nowadays Spain’s avant-garde designers, architects and chefs have unleashed a formidable wave of innovation to make it one of the most exciting countries in Europe.
No matter what motivations you have to travel, Spain always stands out as one of the most appealing destinations in the world.
There are 47 public airports in Spain. The busiest one is the airport of Barcelona (El Prat) and secondly Madrid (Barajas). Other main airports are located in Majorca, Málaga, Tenerife, Las Palmas or Alicante.

The Spanish hotel star rating system has requirements much more demanding than other European countries, so at a given rating Spanish accommodations are worth more. More and more hotels and holiday rentals in Spain have adapted their infrastructures in the late years, thanks principly to law requirements and the Spanish tourism sector´s growing awareness.
We personally audit every property before we decide to add it on our list of adapted accommodation. In top of that, we build a close relationship with the hotel management in every property with the purpose to have every resource available to provide you the best service.
These properties are also chosen in base of their service and awareness towards access needs, therefore we work with those hotels who go the extra mile when accommodating guests with different access requirements. Check here our portfolio of accessible hotels in Spain.
