These rooms are between 42 More and 50 square meters (plus spacious veranda) have both bath and shower, flat screen satellite T.V. minibar, personal safe, telephone, poster bed, Wi-Fi and teak furniture. The overall concept remain the same: Ocean Village Club aims to give exceptional value for money, a smart, understated, environment for Clients that wish to relax, unwind, enjoy the sun, the beach, the ocean. As always Ocean Village Club has resisted the temptation to build too many rooms as the underlying philosophy is that of creating an environment where clients feel part of a privileged few, not just numbers... as always... better yes, bigger no!!

There is an additional a la carte resturant which overlooks the sea. Coffee (instant) and one free bottle of water per day in your room are included in the half board programme.
