          We stayed three nights in the Samara Tree House and were totally happy. Great location and well-implemented tree house concept. Not luxurious but very comfortable. Kitchen in the tree house and a grill underneath.

          Which beachfront units are the best? Is it true the swimming pool is only for adults? Thank you.

          Hi, Has anyone stayed in the beachfront bungalows with no air conditioning in the heat of the summer? Trying to decide whether to give up the beachfront for a/c near the pool but hate to do so. Any insight would be great. Thanks.

          Hi - I tried to use the website but it looks like it's been hacked with porn. I guess the best way to go about reserving a room is by calling?
