Bask on the beachfront

Scuba lessons
Onsite Renova Spa lures you to its Caribbean wellness center with promises of pampering pleasures that include body treatments and a variety of massages. If you're looking for something new, the introductory scuba-diving lesson in one of the 3 outdoor pools might fit the bill.

Surf 'n Turf and more
