AN EXCLUSIVE Ibiza hotel in a stunning cove has been crowned the best value for money holiday resort in Spain – but Barcelona doesn’t even make the top ten.

The Palladium Hotel Cala Llonga is an adult-only all-inclusive in a beautiful location with a gorgeous beach and crystal clear waters.

The hotel ranks number one for Best Value out of 62 Spanish resorts on Tripadvisor, a list jam packed with stunning destinations.

Yet holidaymakers will be surprised to learn that the iconic city of Barcelona doesn’t make the top ten at all.

In fact, beachy getaways seem to have beaten city breaks across the board.

The sister islands of Majorca and the smaller Menorca dominate the list, along with Ibiza and Gran Canaria both securing two spots.

Here are the top ten holiday resorts Tripadvisor recommends.
