    I shouldn't have said "pool" bar. There's a great outdoor bar with tables/seating right behind the beach. I think there's a volleyball area too. I never checked out the pool.

    We got our breakfast included with our trip, but if not, it's very reasonable and totally worth it. Wide selection and very tasty.
