Nightly entertainment at the resort. Outdoor "lifesize" chess set for anyone interested in playing. Shooting range (structured and well monitored) for teens. Pool tables and foosball in shaded areas (wow - fantastic). Oh and very moderately priced massages on the beach!

Many recreational things to do for everyone...Read More
