          I see the pictures of the "big" salt water pool and it looks awesome. But I say one reviewer stating that not all vacationers could use the pool. Are there any restrictions on the use of that pool? If I book an all inclusive trip with Sun Wing can my family use the pool? And is it always open? because we are looking to go Dec 12 to the 19th this year thank you
