Backing a stretch of coral beach, this relaxed resort is known for its welcoming service.

From the moment you see the perfectly framed view as you arrive into the lobby you can appreciate the fantastic beachfront setting and chilled out and friendly atmosphere of this east-coast resort. The focal point is the large infinity pool which is just steps away from the sands of the sweeping beach; the walk along the beach towards Belle Mare is an enjoyable way to while away a couple of hours. A trip here wouldn’t be complete without a spa treatment to the sound of the waves in the oceanfront palapa, or a trip out onto the lagoon on a kayak or Laser dingy. If you're looking for some a romantic interlude

Dining can be enjoyed at any of the resort’s three restaurants, two of which are included in the all-inclusive package. The main restaurant is the buffet venue Indigo which sits poolside and is open for breakfast and dinner. The theme at dinner changes regularly allowing for you to enjoy cuisine from around the world and there are plenty of gluten free as well as a range of healthy eating options. An alternative evening destination is Dolce Vita, an refreshed à la carte trattoria serving home-made pastas, grilled meats and wood-fired pizzas alongside an extensive wine and cocktail list; a selection of the restaurant’s premium dishes are subject to a supplement. At the beachfront restaurant La Plage, where dishes are available at a supplement, you can dine with your toes in the sand and an ocean backdrop. Next to La Plage, there's the rustic new Ti Bar where you can try some unique local cocktails that will be whipped up by the creative mixologist. For daytime drinks and poolside snacks, take a seat at the the cool and casual Coral Bar. H&H Lounge is the place to head after dinner: they have karaoke nights, live music and international sporting events on the big screen. It's also just steps from the resort's nightclub, Shakers.

The rooms are simple in style with light décor and a few splashes of colour here and there. We love the spacious Superior Rooms – with garden or sea views – or even larger Deluxe Rooms which are sea facing. For a Deluxe Room with some outdoor space, opt for one of the rooms which feature a terrace or balcony. Both the Honeymoon Suites and Ambre Suites have a separate living room and master bedroom.
