    Hello, the beach is a 1.5 km, and if you want to go walking it is 15 to 20 minutes or in car is a 5 minutes.

    We stayed with our two kids in (12 an 15) in a family suite with two large double beds. It was quite spacious so I Think you couldn't easily get two extra beds in the room. Best wishes. Peter.
