We are going to Sandal's Whitehouse in February and have booked a Premium room. I understand that would be 2nd floor French Village or 1st floor Dutch and Italian. If the Dutch Village overlooks the pool and beach, how private are the balconies if you are on the first floor? Can you walk out from your balcony to the beach/pool? How noisy are the French Village rooms if they overlook the pool with the activities and music?
I prefer to overlook the ocean/beach-would I be better off requesting the Italian village? I really don't want a view of the pool as I have a pool at home, but not a beach!
I am looking for a very relaxing vacation and don't care to do "activities" such as volleyball, etc. My idea of the perfect warm vacation is a good book, a chair in the shade and long walks on the beach. I get enough site-seeing at other times.
