          Does anybody know if there is anywhere to Jet Ski at all? I see a few people mentioned getting a taxi down to Santa Maria beach - Is there water sports there? Also. A lot of room "block" recommendations - did you ask for particular blocks on arrival / (did the hotel grant your request?) I can't find an email address for the hotel to ask this directly! Thank you in advance for any advice!

          Yes you can, also you can book the Asian restaurant which in the funana side of the resort. Palace guests get full access to all of funana facilities, not sure about the krystals restaurant, but the palace has one of those.
