          Do all of the rooms have a balcony and an ocean view? Also, is there a mini fridge so that we can keep drinks and snacks cold? Looking at the La Playa room.

          All rooms have balconies with ocean views. No frig in rooms. If you need to keep something cold you can ask restaurant staff to put it in the frig on the first floor

          Is there still an issue with the hot water shower in the rainforest room? Our kids are staying in that room in December and do like their hot showers!

          There should be no problem with hot water in December when the sun shines most of the time.
