We took a taxi from the cruise terminal. I think $8 per person each way. Walked between the buildings to get to the beach. Signs at the pool said for guests only.

You are given cards for beach towels. Room is adequately furnished with dishes, etc., but you must bring your own coffee and tea. Thankfully there is a small grocery store in the resort premises.
