Pool Scene

Bavaro Beach is a five-minute walk from the hotel. It’s got over 10 miles of pillow-soft sand for you to sprawl out on, along with a handful of lively restaurants and bars.

Food & Drink

You can pile up a plate with grilled lobster and meats in the two buffet restaurants. Or, tuck in to a sushi platter and a bowl of ramen noodles in the Japanese à la carte*.

After-dinner drinks are served in the three bars. You’ll find one on the roof in the Japanese eatery and the couple of pools.

Entertainment

When the sun starts to set, you can shake your hips during a live music show or a bass-pumping party.

If you'd prefer to let loose around town, you'll find a selection of bars and nightclubs within a five-minute walk from the hotel.

Sports & Activities

Down on the beach, you can give snorkelling*, scuba diving* and windsurfing* a go.

If you’re looking to get out and explore the countryside, you can book on to a 4x4 rainforest safari tour*, too.

Health & Beauty

The spa* deals in massages, body wraps and exfoliating scrubs, as well as manis, pedis and facials.

The 24-hour gym, meanwhile, is fitted with all the essentials for a full-body workout, including treadmills, ellipticals and dumbbells.

Facility Overview

The pool scene steals the spotlight here. There are five pools in total, including a rooftop infinity number and a paddling pool for little ones. The two buffet restaurants and the Japanese à la carte take care of mealtimes, while the three bars serve drinks throughout the day. On the activity front, you can try snorkelling*, scuba diving* and windsurfing*. And in the spa*, you can treat yourself to a massage and a manicure.
