This large resort spread across a ridge has the best sea views hereabouts and is also one of the best dive and sportfishing resorts in the country. All rooms have ocean views, but those with the nicest views are on the hilltop, even though they may be a bit cramped with furniture. Down the hill to the beach, comfortable triangular bungalows each have two separate suites that share a semiprivate pool. All the rooms have extra amenities such as coffeemakers, and hair dryers.
There's a swimming pool at the top of the property, as well as a pool near the restaurant; be prepared, though, for a steep hike to the biggest one down at the beach, complete with a swim-up bar. You can call for a van to take you back up the hill. The best feature of the restaurant, which specializes in Mediterranean and Asian flavors, is the 270-degree view from the terrace.
