My husband and I (ok me) are researching a Jan trip for his 50th birthday, either 2nd or 3rd week. I have narrowed down our stay to OCW or Alexandra, and after exhaustive research know that we can't go wrong with either. I have a few questions though, so if anyone can answer these about either or both resorts that would be great, keeping in mind the time of year we will be there. None of these are deal breakers, just things to add to the pros and cons lists.
How hard is it to find chairs and umbrellas on the beach each day in Jan? My husband is an early riser so we will be looking early, like 9ish.
Are beach towels always available and easily accessible?
Are there tables with the beach chairs?
Do the beach bars offer happy hours? Are they good, with good specials?
Are the resorts crowded in Jan?
Is the ocean rough? I am not a swimmer.
Are there lots of children?
Also, a general island question, I think I read they drive on the other side of the road than in the US, is this correct?
