This hotel makes it easy for you to take advantage of Sal’s beach scene – it’s set on one of the island’s sandy stretches. This place is all set for families, offering spacious rooms and a busy activity programme. Pool-wise, you’ve got a double helping of huge swimming pools – one’s best for chilled-out sunbathing and the other keeps the spotlight on sporty activities. For little ones, there’s a pair of kids’ pools, too. And, when it comes to relaxation, the relaxation-ready spa delivers. Make sure you pay a visit to the thermal circuit, which lines up a steam bath, perfumed showers and a sauna.
Your All Inclusive stay gives you access to no less than four restaurants. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are dished up at the main buffet restaurant – expect show cooking and themed nights. In the evening, you can choose between the O’Grille, Pasta Nostra and Aqua restaurants. Meanwhile, on the beach, you pay a little extra to tuck into locally sourced seafood at the beach bar/grill.

The Level bar’s just for guests who’ve upgraded – just ask at reception when you’re checking in – and there’s a pair of bars open to all guests.
