What's to Love

It's all-inclusive and all-aahmazing. You'll want for nada.

Metamorphosis Spa. Aloe-vera body wraps & Shiatsu massages transform you. Body & soul.

An in-water jungle gym, water-spraying palm tree and ginormous frog for your beach babies.

Family fun like supervised trapeze training & a trampoline. Yes, you read that right.

Mediterranean-style architecture makes you feel all royal.

 

What We'd Change

Necessary items, such as sunscreen, can be pretty pricey at the resort's shops. Bring plenty with you, and you'll have no problem getting oodles of pictures of your well-protected bronzed bod.

 

Why You Should Go

It's just a 25 short minutes from the airport. Your sandsational vacay will begin pronto.

There's scuba & snorkeling. Water polo & water basketball. Get splashy.

Three tennis courts and a climbing wall offer fun on terra firma & for those who enjoy heights.

Golf is only 20 minutes away at an 18-hole, par-72 course designed by Juan Manuel Gordilla.

Eco-adventures tours are available for all the explorer types out there.
