Sailing's the thing at this busy hotel and marina in the nautically inclined North Sound, and the use of everything from small sailboats to kayaks to windsurfers is included in the price. If you're serious about taking to the high seas, sign up for lessons at the resort's sailing school. Of course, if you just want to lounge about on the beachfront chaise longues or on your balcony, that's cool. There's a busy social scene, with guests gathering to swap tales at the hotel's
bars. Rooms are bright and cheery, the decor leaning toward tropical colors. The only way to reach the Bitter End is by a free private ferry.
