We just walked out our back deck onto the beach It was beautiful with chairs right there. I found out later that the chairs did not belong to our room exclusively and we would have to reserve them like anywhere else.

We went as part of an ecotour with Patrick. About 200-300 feet out are some nice reefs. We saw turtles, stingray and octopi. The water was clear and warm. Great for relaxing and doing nothing.
