This modern resort development is attractively designed with stylish furnishings and decor coupled with an extensive array of well presented facilities ranging from children’s club to 9-hole golf, lazy river to well furnished beach.
Accommodation is placed well enough back so as not to obscure the eye line across the grounds to the sea. And, with shops and restaurants available within a short walk, this property has an appeal to families and couples alike.
Standing back from the street on elevated position and separated by lawned garden surrounding a waterfall feature, a cobbled driveway with ornamental lights curves its way round to the large set down area under a broad portico in front of the four storey main building.
With a mainly white facade, the wing of accommodation extends in a c-shape formation at the northern end with balcony rooms looking inland. The polished marble forecourt is enhanced by the dark wood ceiling of the portico and doors at the front entrance.

An impressive stairway leads to the lower ground-floor where the main restaurant is situated. This has high backed wooden framed and cushioned chairs at predominantly square tables on patterned marble effect floor with large windows overlooking the grounds. Opposite this is the full facilities spa and fitness centre.
The main building occupies only a fraction of the extensive grounds which reach right down to the beachfront and as far again to the southern end of the resort. The main lagoon shaped pool is immediately in front of the accommodation overlooked by the sea facing rooms. It has a series of wooden arched bridges, integral islands, waterfall features, Jacuzzis and giant chessboard.
Throughout, on the broad terrace around, there are mattress sunloungers and cloth parasols. The pool restaurant has al fresco dining on bistro-style furnishings. This is also the location of the children’s club where there is a separate pool.
Pathways meander across well kept lawned gardens with more bridges crossing the lazy river feature. Overlooked by the marina, the beach is exceptionally wide and long and is furnished with sunloungers and regimental lines of parasols.
There is both a watersports centre and dive centre in addition to the tango beach restaurant which has views from its open terrace seating right across the beach. At the extremity of the sands, are the golf club and a further a la carte restaurant. The golf river feature winds its way past the nine holes which occupy the southern end of the resort from the beach to the road.
