    Thank you for your question. We are always available via phone and there is always someone at the towel hut and/or the beach hut to take care of issues on the pool desk/beach.

    It usually ranges between a cool 53 to a high of 75 degrees in February. The water is still a little cool to swim in, but I believe wet suits are available to help with the cold, if you decide to try.
