We seemed to end up here whichever way we went for a walk. A few small shops but all very dated. Walked through one evening and it looked busy with some music playing in the main plaza.

Lots of bars and restaurants, lovely beaches, bus rides to other resorts, long promenade to walk. The Kasbah and Jumbo centre have nightlife for the younger end plus a very active gay scene.
