For water-based fun, there are three pools for water polo and aqua aerobics, two fun children’s pools, access to Splash Water World, and kayaking, sailing, and windsurfing out on the beach. Land-based activities include tennis, ping pong, and volleyball, plus an array of entertainment programs for adults and a supervised activity program for kids, 4-12.
