A third, 23-meter-wide (25-yard) pool contains jetted sections, in-water tables, and a swim-up bar. An irregularly shaped pool with shallow-water sections for lounge chairs measures 17 meters (56 ft) wide.
Furnished with thatched-roof palapas and lapped by water that remains calm in most weather, the resort's beach extends 200 meters (219 yards) along Cancún Island's north side, where it is protected from open-sea swells. The resort's entire waterfront contains garden-fringed sunbathing terraces with padded lounge chairs and umbrellas.
