Mediterranean charm, Caribbean spirit and peaceful adults-only areas make this an excellent choice.

This welcoming and relaxing resort blends Mediterranean and Caribbean styles, with its white-washed buildings and terracotta roofs. Stroll along powder-soft white sands to the watersports centre and try your hand at waterskiing. Wander through landscaped gardens to courtyards dotted with fountains or head to the adults-only pool and relax as pool ambassadors provide you with cold eucalyptus-scented towels, drinks and coconut ice lollies.

Enjoy daily complimentary breakfast on the terrace and beachfront dining at the main restaurant which offers themed menus and live music. Inspired by the cool chic of Miami’s South Beach, the Rilaks Deck is a stylish venue for cocktails and light snacks. At the Sunday beach party you can sample local grilled specialities and dance to the steel pan band.

Rooms vary from simple Pool/Garden View Rooms to spacious One Bedroom Suites which are ideal for families and groups. Opt for an Oceanfront Room or Suite for the chance to watch fiery sunsets over the sea from your balcony or terrace.
