"This is possibly one of the coolest places to stay in town and one of the few right on the beach. The beach club is ideal for those looking for relaxation during the day – and at night low lights and contemporary furniture transform this four-star resort into an idyllic setting for cocktails and romantic dinners," says Andrea Loddo of Thomson Tailormade (0871 664 0273; thomsontailormade.com).
