Virgin Holidays View
We don't think we've ever come across an all-inclusive arrangement that covers so much — you'll find golf, tennis and a variety of water sports – including water-skiing and scuba-diving available with instruction. There's a choice of fine dining from casual to gourmet. If you ever feel peckish, there's 24-hour food service on hand and your drinks are all premium brands - of course! New amenities include a fantastic spa with 10 treatment rooms, veggie and juice bar and much more.
