    We stayed in one of the poolside villas (105$/night after tax) because the cabanas were all booked. It was nice, though no AC, only a fan. The room was pretty basic, but big. We stayed with only two of us and had 3 single beds...More

    I am hoping to camp here, does the hotel offer lockers or safes for campers? Is the campsite a secured area that we can leave our tents set up while we are out and about? We plan to stay 9 nights. I am going in a week.

    Saludos! El lugar tiene un área muy grande de camping pero por las fechas creo que es mejor reservar, aunque dudo que no haya campo, más talvez por que les reserven un buen lugar cerca de la piscina y baños. Que disfruten!
