Junior Suites come as standard here. And to raise the bar even further, you can book a Jacuzzi ® Suite – a sophisticated space with an open-air hot tub.


Watersports are big here, with windsurfing, kayaking and bodyboarding among the options. You can sign up for an introductory scuba lesson in the pool, too.
