          what's the difference between the deluxe seafacing and executive seafacing rooms? The published size seems similar

          Response from okla9999 | Reviewed this property |
          View, view, view...... Executive seafacing rooms are located on high floor, seaview totally will not be blocked by coconut trees. Deluxe seafacing rooms are located on 4th floor and below, some view might be blocked by trees.
