The resort, with its three pools, is noted for its peace and tranquility. Nearby walks give spectacular views across the Mediterranean to Morocco and the Atlas Mountains. For those who like to get out and about, adjacent destinations include two of the jet-set's favorite watering holes, Marbella and Puerto Banús, while a trip inland opens up a totally different Spain to that experienced on the coast.
