There's a pool at the resort with a lovely sundeck area. You can take lots of #vacay pictures here for your Instagram and then take a plunge in the pool to wash away all the exhaustion. At night you can ask the hotel staff to arrange for a bonfire and then have a great bonding time with your partner, children, or friends, i.e. whoever you are traveling with.
