Fodor's Review

A long stretch of pretty, white-sand beach borders this classic resort, where service is warm and professional. A complete overhaul in 2012 and new management bring it back to the top. Seven suites are smartly designed with modern upgrades and private plunge pools on the roof; five three- and four-bedroom villas with drop-dead views, impeccable decor, and a full private staff please even the pickiest moguls. There are beachfront cabanas and a ton of activities, including one-on-one Pilates instruction and yoga in the workout facility. The serene Elysées Spa is surrounded by a lush private garden and waterfall, and treatment rooms include a private outdoor area with a shower. Add loads of waterfront activities, great tennis, two freshwater pools, and two restaurants (one on the beach, one in the main house). The hotel's 15,000-bottle wine cellar is in a class by itself, and private dinners in the cellar can be tailored to guest interests. For cocktails, hit the Terrace grill for tapas skewers and unique mixed drinks. Promotions may include meals, rental cars, and airport transfers.
