shade around the pool at the brisas?

Hi I have been looking at a video of the hotel on utube and it looks like there are no parasoles at all can anyone tell me if this is the case as I burn so easily there's no way I could sit around the pool also it looks like no mattresses for the loungers but I could live with that

Many thanks in advance

Plenty of shade at the hotel pool, but the villa pool was being refurbed when we were there

OK just curious because the pool was not functioning properly when I was there recently in january. I thought perhaps they were digging up and repairing the pipes.

There was plenty of shade round the main pool when we were there last month. Although they don't have mattresses on the sun loungers the ones round the pool are the fabric type so fairly comfortable anyway.

There is plenty of shade around the hotel pool and on the beach but the villa pool is slightly lacking in shade although I believe they will be working on that shortly.

They have umbrellas on the beach but not by the pool - though when I say umbrellas they're the pretty ones made of natural materials not the fabric type you take down at night. Don't know what they call the large shady things you lie under by the pool - but somebody will know. There is also some natural shade from the trees which I tended to use so I could have my legs in the sun but keep my head and body out of it.

I think I will have to try and find a portable umbrella if one exists

You are correct in that there are no umbrellas round the main pool, though there is shade.
