This resort mixes the columns and low white buildings of a classic Mediterranean style with the painted, carved decorations and mariachi-band sculptures of a Mexican hacienda style. Because the buildings do not block the sun, guests can bask by the pool or on the private beach right up until sunset. To cool off, they can lie on in-water chaise lounges or jump into either of 3 freeform pools, 1 whose swim-up bar has swing seating. Butlers stroll through pool and beach areas with books, magazines, sunscreen, and drinks.
A fitness center features cardio and strength-training equipment and is divided by a glass wall from a studio for Pilates and spinning classes. The lobby contains billiard tables; billiards and Ping-Pong also can be played in the 24-hour VIP Lounge.
6 restaurants offer a wide variety of cuisine, including the Chef's Plate, with multi-course meals where guests can discuss dishes with the chef and wines with the sommelier. Cocktails are available at 4 bars — including 1 with nightly music. 24-hour room service is provided.
A business center provides computers, fax machines, office supplies, and high-speed Internet access. Wireless Internet access is complimentary throughout the property. In addition to concierge services, a special romance concierge is on site to provide information tailored for couples.
