          Hello, Because all the rooms I saw in your pictures were facing the pool/beach and were split level and stand alone, we though we were getting one of these. Now I see we are getting a jungle room with no views that I can see. If this is the case, I will talk to the other couple but feel we will cancel our booking. But before we do, please could you confirm which rooms we would get as we only want beach/pool views with split level. They look very beautiful. Many thanks

          We stayed in a stand alone villa facing beach but it was single level the top level was another guest room. Lovely resort worth the stay breakfast was great and location A1.

          Hi, we are travelling in February, 2 adults and 3 girls aged 10, 8 and 3. Is there a room we would all fit in together? I don't want to pay to much for extra beds, but we need 4 sleeping spots and 1 baby cot... Which room would be ok for that?
