Eat. Food and locations to try.
At Le Meridien you can choose from the Pool Bar, first choice for discerning restmakers, the Lobby Bar, first choice for discerning unwinders, or La Verandah, first choice for discerning chillouters. A real treat is to enjoy a cocktail beside one of the beautiful pools and close your eyes for an hour or so to let island time set in.
In the downtown vicinity you have many options.
