An alternative to the chic boutique
hotels along the bay is the freshly revamped Divan Palmira. The waterfront
resort sits amidst manicured lawns at the center of which is a large
swimming pool spitting forth torrents of water through the mouths of
dolphin statues. Tile floors give the already largish guest rooms an
airy feel, and all rooms, equipped with ceiling fans, enjoy either a
garden or garden/pool view. The recently renovated bathrooms are befitting
of any brand name luxury resort, with large tubs, fresh tile, and ample
counter space. The hotel offers a range of services, from bay-front
watersports (spewing gasoline fumes onto the beach, unfortunately),
to a massage and salon, and its very own Divan Patisserie franchise
located in a two-story stone house right on the beach. The whole beach
and teak jetty get romantically torchlit at night.
