This all-inclusive resort is on the north-west coast of the Caribbean island of Aruba, 4km from the popular Dutch-styled town of Oranjestad with its shops, bars and restaurants. Situated on a white-sand beach, it offers a variety of watersports including scuba-diving (all guests are offered a free introductory pool session).
There are plenty of daytime activities for anyone who wants to get active, while lovers of laid-back holidays can head for the spa or the pools, which include a kids' pool. Low-key entertainment several times a week includes karaoke, and the five stylish restaurants serve everything from Japanese cuisine and steak to buffet favourites ideal for families.
Simple modern rooms have full or partial sea views or overlook the gardens. Most sleep up to four, and all come with a balcony or terrace to enjoy the sea breezes.
