I personally like Royal Atlantic because they have a pool, and a beach bar and restaraunt on their property. Although the prices are expensive for their cocktails, it is still nice to be able to hang out on the beach or pool and have the option of ordering from their menu. Royal Atlantic is also great for families and larger groups.

Surf Club is a great location for families as each room has the amenities of a condo. The resort has a pool, and beach chairs, and umbrellas available for their guests. I like that the rooms have their own private balcony and are on two floors.
