You get access to two sister hotels, and Pacha nightclub in the Riu resort. The outside space is immaculately put together, with manicured gardens home to a big, outdoor pool. Entertainment is big here, too, with live bands playing every night.


The main pool puts on aqua aerobics, and you can have a scuba diving lesson here, too. There are beachside activities like volleyball – you can even play darts on the sand.
