This 12-acre property is popular with families, but honeymooners head here, too, because the resort is big enough to provide quiet, romantic corners. The sand-color high-rise building is topped by a distinctive hacienda-style roof, and interconnected pools, flow through the compound and end in an ornamental lagoon. Rooms are well equipped, but the balconies are rather small. There's no lack of activities for adults; in addition to a casino, the resort offers horseback
riding, water sports, tennis, and a highly regarded spa. Kids' programs are extensive as well. The restaurants are very good, most notably Ruinas del Mar, which serves fresh seafood with a continental flair.
