A property of two halves with the livelier area being beachside. A stylish resort complex which, despite its brand name, has a family ambience as opposed to corporate. A myriad of facilities in the main grounds but, strangely, the well equipped children’s club is located in the furthest corner of landside complex. Guests staying landside use the extensive dining facilities beachside as there are no restaurants there.
Terracotta-coloured triple height main building stands 30m back from the road separated by a cobbled pavement and a strip of garden with neatly trimmed shrubs.
Predominantly glass frontage has a portico extending over the set down area under which there are rotating chrome trimmed glass doors.
Across the road is the second part of property which is separated from the street by a neat shrubbery hedge overlooked by a two-storey block of accommodation.
Property type: Hotel
Balcony/Terrace: Most rooms
Built Year: 1995
The lobby of the main building features a marble floor surround to a raised lounge area with wooden flooring upon which there are clusters of soft cushioned sofas and armchairs. The lobby bar is located to one side facing a central internal garden.
Beyond the long marble fronted reception counters are both the main restaurant, which has views across the grounds and high backed wooden framed chairs at square tables, and the pub, which has large TV screens and snooker table.
Accommodation is located in six, 3-storey staggered wings bordering the extensive lawned gardens which reach down to the beach. Both of the lagoon shaped pools here are surrounded by broad terrace furnished with mattress sunloungers and cloth parasols.
The main pool reaches up to the main building and under a sloping conservatory style glass roof. The second pool houses the Oriental restaurant reached by an arched wooden bridge. A detached wooden fronted building surrounded by tropical gardens house both the lagoona and beach restaurants with views across the sea.
The beach is sandy and crescent shaped, bordered by palm trees and naturally extending marina, and is furnished by sunloungers and wooden topped parasols. A children’s playground is off the beach and a snack bar and watersports centre on the marina stop.
The second part of the resort, across the road, has 6 blocks of 2-storey accommodation bordering the street and 16 blocks surrounding park-like grounds beyond. An additional pool, furnished with sunloungers and parasols, but no restaurants. At the rear boundary, there are tennis courts and children’s club in addition to a full facility spa and indoor swimming pool
