Every detail is taken care of when it comes to in-room comfort, with complimentary toiletries including body scrubs and cushions, while the complimentary minibar is stocked with delicious snacks.

This allows adults to spend their leisure time at the adults-only Silent Beach, where the use of devices is discouraged.

There are more dessert choices than we’ve seen anywhere else, including a more dangerous ice cream station – the pistachios are my favorite.

Fancy waiter service? Make a reservation at Pasha, a beachside restaurant for adults and over 12s (slightly surprised everything is white!), serving delicious Mediterranean fare, such as lobster and avocado dishes houmous.
