Both a hotel and a private club, this resort has an 18-hole golf course, tennis courts, a large pool, an equestrian center, and a small beach club a 10-minute drive away. Spacious guest rooms are in a series of two-story, Spanish-style buildings scattered around ample grounds with common gardens, porches, and lawns. All rooms are designed for families, with bedrooms that can be separated from the living room, and have sofa beds, wicker furniture, and big windows. "Garden suites" have one bedroom and two sofa beds; "Royal suites" have two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a large balcony; and "Residential suites" have the same, plus a full kitchen. A second-floor restaurant serves dinner only, but the spacious open-air restaurant by the pool serves three meals per day. There is also a restaurant at the beach club, nearly a kilometer (½-mi) away, but they will shuttle you there.
