Hotel Alfonso XIII, Sevilla Spain
Thursday, August 30, 2012
You might expect Seville to be a bit hot in August, after all you're in southern Spain, but our four days averaged a sweltering 104 degrees. What's a girl to do? Throw on a swimsuit, tie on pareo and grab a table inside Taifis, Hotel Alfonso XIII uber chic pool bar and restaurant. Taifis was an oasis of cool--luxurious red leather chairs complimented the stylish black and white tile floors and the delicate Moorish inspired white fretwork walls brought a serenity to the room- the perfect antidote to the heat. After lunch, a swim in the luxurious courtyard pool had me refreshed and ready to learn the flaminco!
