Food & Drink

Fresh, nutritious fare is at the heart of the Hilton’s dining experiences, with a range of creative dishes to savour at every meal. The main restaurant, Magellan, is the home of a delicious buffet and live show cooking for breakfast (07:30-10:30) and dinner (19:30-22:30), along with a wine cellar showcasing the finest reds, whites and roses. For lighter dining with a healthy twist, there’s also the welcoming pool bar, which dishes up mouth-watering fresh grills and zesty juices – or for a beachside bite, head to Bounty, which specialises in authentic Creole cuisine. Plus, by night, there’s the elegant ambience of the Cize Bar, with a superb cocktail and snack menu accompanied by live music from celebrated local artists.

Sports & Entertainment

With the lapping waves of the Atlantic just steps away, it’s no wonder that the ocean is at the heart of the hotel’s extensive activities programme. From relaxing sailing, fishing and snorkelling, to high-octane jet-skiing and water-skiing, there’s something that every water baby will love. Plus, in the main hotel complex, there’s a glittering swimming pool just waiting for you to take a dip, along with spacious sun terraces and a well-equipped fitness room.

For little ones, there's also a kids club, playroom, and dedicated children's menu, along with a babysitting service for a small local charge.
