A luxury spot offering deluxe accommodation and superior service, the Ocean Beach Club Hotel is an excellent choice. Within walking distance of the beach, local restaurants, bars, a mall and a range of golf and sports facilities, it’s an ideal location for those who like to explore. There’s also an outdoor heated pool (perfect for that daily dose of vitamin D), and rooms are furnished with microwaves, irons, fridges, coffeemakers, safes and LED TVs.

3. Gallery Condo


Located near the beach with an on-site restaurant and bar, you won’t need to venture far from Gallery Condos. A swimming pool, fitness center, business center and concierge services ensure you have access to everything you’re likely to need, while towels, robes and linens are provided in each room (there are even laundry facilities, so you can pack light). It’s close to the marina, too, if you fancy a leisurely evening stroll and a nightcap at one of the local bars.

Sun worshippers, take note: this beachside Hilton hotel stretches right out onto the sand – and if the beach isn’t your thing, there’s also an outdoor pool and wraparound deck area with private cabanas. When hunger strikes, Mediterranean-inspired restaurant S3 offers oceanfront dining, while sister eatery Le Marche provides direct beach access along with freshly baked treats. Meanwhile, Spa Q provides a range of treatments from express to intense, including hot stone or seashell massages along with beauty treatments such as manicures, facials and make-up services. You’re all but guaranteed to leave looking and feeling like a million dollars.
