Right on the ocean, this relaxed four-star, all-inclusive spot has spacious slate-and-timber bungalows with ceiling fans, outdoor baths and freshwater showers. There’s a swimming pool, volleyball court and pool table, and a terrific beach bar where sundowners can easily phase into late-night cocktails. It’s closed during the wet season.
The food has received mixed reviews of late, but it does have a speedboat to whisk you out to nearby surf breaks, and it offers excursions to limestone caves and tidal lagoons. Fishing trips for dog-toothed tuna and mackerel can also be arranged.
