With dramatic, contemporary architecture that allows each suite water views, this resort offers large two- and three-bedroom condo accommodations with designer kitchens and living rooms, two LCD TVs and a balcony that looks down upon the labyrinth of swimming pools. Service is attentive, caring, quite efficient, and most staffers are relatively fluent in English. A full and varied breakfast is complimentary at Le Bistro, which offers both indoor and outdoor seating. The
fusion cuisine is a cut above. Think: seafood soup scented with Pernod and potato croutons or Angus carpaccio with mango, avocado and soy, lemon dressing—that’s just for starters. The Gastro’ Gazebo is a new option with selections that include foie gras and Nagua oysters. The creative cocktails make it ideal for watching the sun slip away. Here the golden Atlantic beach is dramatic and unspoiled, and guests vie for a beachfront massage by a professional therapist, sheltered by a bamboo privacy wall.
