The brand has slipped out of its '70s ooh-la-la orgiastic garb here into something a little more family-friendly. Guests can practice yoga in a beachside palapa, lounge on a daybed next to the pool, sail, snorkel, or sea-kayak in the Pacific. The swinging hasn't ceased altogether, either: Intrepid guests can learn trapeze at the on-site circus school. Young visitors are kept giddily happy at Mini-Club Med (with its own pool, restaurant, sports programs, excursions, and an arts-and-crafts program designed by Crayola). A vacation here is a like visit to a swank, action-packed summer camp, with the added bonus of mojitos and comfy beds.
