These duplex, two-bedroom villas ring the marina of a sprawling, 500-acre compound offering every conceivable facility from restaurants and shops to a golf course. The Mediterranean Revival central activity area could put the florid in Florida, with its red-tile roofs, faux stucco, and mustard arcades. The sizable, fully equipped, pastel-hue (mint to mango) villas themselves resemble a cookie-cutter retirement village. Opt for those on the south finger, which is closer
to the beach and activities, since the free shuttle is erratic and slow. You must pay separately for everything except the pool and kids' club. On still days, flies and mosquitoes come out in brute force, but villas represent jolly good value for self-catering families (many have washer/dryer; kids under 12 stay free) and golfers.
