The Sports Club has gym equipment, classes, spa and sauna. All the usual facilities were there but very dated. The spa has tiles missing and the sauna is in need of repair. The showers had taps missing and not very clean.

Pros:
- If you are into proper strength training, this gym has the best equipment I've seen for a holiday place: dumbbell rack, with maximum to FIFTY (50kg), squat bar, bench press, cable crossover machines, enough barbell plates (15, 20kg) to get a serious workout
- About 15 or so treadmills, about 20 bikes. The area is massive. As other posters have said this is undergoing renovation. They have decided to replace all the squash courts with a proper gym.
- It is apparent they do a Bodypump style class in the mirrored area
- From what I've seen, the tennis courts are very well maintained. 4 grass courts I think.

Cons:
- if you like your squash, they don't do squash anymore. All three squash courts replaced by a gym.

staff are lovely however they are obviously under a massive renovation from our last visit. buggy parks out the front are not defined so now guests are parking everywhere which is problematic .

Weight area, classes like yoga, Cardio machines and tennis and basketball also. Nice staff. Maybe the weight area could be a bit bigger and offer some towel service (don't everybody bring their own towel)

Having never sailed before, decided to try this. First timers must take the lessons (and really, I'd recommend it because I'm not sure how you could figure it on your own!). I think it was about $20 each for a quick lesson on the beach, and then you're paired up and off you go, out to sea.
Instructor was really helpful. And for those of you afraid of capsizing... he does zip around to all the participants in a boat to check on you, which is nice.
Cheap, and a fun way to release your adventurous side!
