The unspoilt landscape of Jersey features beautiful bays teeming with marine life in the north and east and glorious golden beaches to the south and west. This low tidal region shared by shore and sea is reminiscent of the moon's surface, and 'moonwalking' has become something of a speciality on Jersey. Just 19 miles from the Normandy coast, Jersey blends the unique atmosphere of a British island with an intriguing taste of France. You can look forward to golden sands, unspoilt countryside and a temperate climate during your stay in St Saviour on the outskirts of Helier, whose bustling port contrasts with tranquil squares and formal gardens. Guarded by Elizabeth Castle, the capital's attractions include the Jersey Art Gallery and the Maritime Museum. Other sights include Mount Orgueil Castle, the Channel Islands Military Museum and the unusual Glass Church. The Merton Hotel QQQ The 3-star Merton Hotel has received Saga's two-rosette Good Food award. It offers a range of dining styles in its two restaurants ­ the main buffet-style Belvedere, and the Italian-style Bonetti's (at an extra charge) ­ as well as a diner and poolside cafe bar. You can enjoy at least two evenings of entertainment each week, plus piano music in the Lobby Bar. The Aquadome leisure complex includes indoor and outdoor pools, a sauna, steam room, gym and tennis court (extra charge). The resort-style hotel has 286 bedrooms, each with a television, telephone, hairdryer, tea and coffee-making facilities, iron and ironing board. There are steps throughout and some rooms cannot be accessed by lift. The hotel is adjacent to the famous Howard Davis Park, just 550 yards from the centre of St Helier and the beach.
