          If you are staying more then three nights then we defiantly think you would want to enjoy a meal or two in the villa. Its also nice to have snack for beach trips outside the resort. Cheers, Sandra

          I would be interested in room recommendations that are one bedroom, oceanfront. Any with a more private patio? Also, are tours available, with pick up at the resort? Is there a place within walking distance to rent snorkel equipment? Thank you!
