          Our mattresses are the Chaide & Chaide Suave Brisa model. They are semi-orthopedic which means you get both comfort and support.

          Which one is the best room, #1 or #9? We love to enjoy the views with a cup of coffee in the morning, and also in the evenings with a cocktail. What is the best time of the year to go snorkeling, and can that be arranged through the hotel?
