What is the situation on the beaches regarding umbrellas/chairs. All of the photos clearly indicate the beaches are breathtaking, but how does one relax on them? I don't seem to see any umbrellas or chairs. Is it au natural (i.e. lie on a towel)? Or does the resort provide umbrellas/chairs upon request? Also, if one would like to enjoy a beverage at the beach, how far off would we have to wander to get to a bar?
Also, do the rooms have mini-fridges so guests can keep drinks and snacks cold?
Finally, while all of the reviews are unwavering in their positivity regarding the grounds and beaches, there is a lot of volatility regarding service (e.g. housekeeping, etc.) I understand the concept of "right now" is different in the islands, but at 500+ per night, one rightfully can expect requests to be completed. Has anyone have any insight or recommendations that resulted in a more enjoyable experience?Edited: 12 February 2010, 03:44
