This glitzy hotel covers a vast area beside a beautiful stretch of beach, promising a great sense of space. Rooms are huge and well-equipped, with those on the beachfront boasting large balconies, some with Jacuzzis for added indulgence. Dining is amazing - I enjoyed a fantastic lunch at the beachfront restaurant, and fine dining at The Yacht Club where the menu is extremely well thought out.
A fantastic new option for those in search of luxury!
