Virgin Holidays View
Exclusive to Virgin Holidays’ guests and you’ll be treated especially well by the friendly, helpful staff here. The rooms are spacious, overlook the beach and out to sea, and the bath tub is perfect for a romantic soak for 2. You’ve got 2 beaches to choose from, 1 on the calm lagoon side, where you can also try your hand at a wide range of free water sports, and the other benefiting from refreshing ocean breezes to cool you as you soak up the rays. Coco’s restaurant has an airy, spacious feel and overlooks the beach, serving excellent buffets and à la carte meals. Its bar is the perfect spot to seek some shade during the day or enjoy a relaxing pre-dinner drink as the sun goes down. Children are in their element here as the kids’ club is great fun – parents will appreciate the break to enjoy a game of tennis or perhaps pump some iron in the fitness centre. Obviously, lounging around the pool terrace at Coco’s drinking a coconut crush is another option, especially if topping up your tan is high on your holiday ‘to do’ list!
