    Not sure we went in January but I would suggest you find another resort. Read the negative reviews, most of them are very recent, but they are accurate.

    Hi, Jan. What would you like to know about this accommodation? Hello. We are considering booking here in December. The reviews regarding the beach and also regarding the service are pretty conflicting. We realize it is not a "sandals" and for the price, we do not expect it to be. But some reviews talk about how far away the beach is and the lack of trees/shade and chairs available. Others say there are plenty of chairs and trees. We need to know how far away the beach is, if there is beverage/food service once you are at the beach, and also we need to know the difference in accommodations if you pay for the upgrade. Thank you so much in advance.
