Stayed at Ravenala Attitude hotel. The beach is nice, but a lot of sunbeds. Some people do not understand 'personal space'. :)

Went and sat at beach outside Maritim. Very pretty. Snorkeling nice, lots of multicolored tropical fish and the occasional stunning coral ( purple, blue green) Not deep and protected from watercraft. Great drinks service from Maritim Hotel. Very pleasant and accessible for inexperienced swimmers.

As there were all inclusive resorts here dotted around the beach, we did not see any restaurants apart from the ones linked to the hotels.
