          Hi, Just wanted to check how the beach in front of this resort is? We are coming in September and love the water. So hoping there isn't much seaweed? Also, i read somewhere the waters are calm - does that mean there aren't much waves? We are looking for a beach with a good amount of waves (not choppy or rough though). Thanks!
