          hi, can anyone tell me if the villas have their own sunbeds and parasoles as i have skin cancer and need shaded at all times. i sent hotel an email but got no reply. can you also tell me how much extra it will be for a villa. i sent the booking office an email and was told sunbeds are first come first serve..... lovely attitude to give someone with skin cancer. i leave in two weeks time and i'm really concerned by the bad reviews saying you cant get a sunbed with shade. i asked for price for upgrade to level so that we could use the bali beds but it was over £1,000. we've already paid over £2,000 for five star holiday that should include use of bali beds. i don't even drink so their premium drink would be wasted on me. can anyone tell me if the upgrade is worth over £1000 extra. thank you. kind regards. m. shaw.
