          We always got a bed without issues. Depends on the time of the year you go I guess. But the ambassadors will help you to get settled if you don't get one. They are the best part of this hotel.

          Hello, We will be staying at your resort and would like to know if there are any terrific restaurants, other than Daphne's, within walking distance from The House. Also, can you recommend a professional photographer to take photos of us on the beach and at the resort. Thank you for your assistance! Paul
