          are beach towels provided and how often are they changed
          21 May 2017|
          Answer
          Response from Jessie B | Reviewed this property |
          Yes beach towels are provided. Towel stations scattered around beach and pools get replenished with clean ones at least once a day. We always got ours in the morning so I didn't pay attention to other times.

          I've read enough reviews to know that unless you have butler service, your chances are slim to find an umbrella/shade on the beach. We have a compact portable beach umbrella. I have not read any reviews about bringing your own. Is that advisable?

          We never tried to reserve a place on the beach but had no problem getting a chair by the pool. I don't see any reason why they would object to you bringing your own umbrella as they are always very accommodating.
