    Do all inclusive drinks stop at 11pm? I read this on first choice but haven't seen it mentioned on any reviews. Also, has anyone with coeliac disease or a gluten intolerance any feedback on the food here? Were gluten free options available?

    Drinks are available after 11 at the rock cafe/disco. There are some gluten free options. We didn't ask for them specifically so I can't say for sure.
    How many room keys do you get per room? 1 key per person?

    We had one key as well. Also, it was a real key on a lanyard.. not a key card. If you purchase the lock for the safe it is a real key as well that is put on the room key lanyard.

    Can the Brianda Jeep tour be booked through the resort once we get there? To other travellers, would you recommend it? Thanks Melanie

    Yes it can and if you take items for the school, might I suggest sports equipment such as soccer balls, baseballs and the like.
