You’ll clock a lot of pairs at this place. First up, you’ve got two pools by the beach. Food-wise, there are a duo of restaurants – a buffet joint and a fancy-pants à la carte. A cocktail bar and a beach café are part of the crew, too. As for activities, the tennis court and spa should do the trick.
SPORTS & ACTIVITIES
Sunbathing’s not the only thing going on at the beach – fishermen and watersports fans will have a field day. Wannabe Murrays are in luck, too, since there’s a tennis court*.
FOOD & DRINK
This place doesn’t let its prime setting go to waste. The Sands does what it says on the tin – beachfront dining, with buffet spreads and menus up for grabs. There’s a café down on the sands, too.
Slap-up meals are on offer over at Black Coral*. Plus, the hotel can sort you out with special private barbecues on the beach and meals in the spa for a bit extra*.
