    Hi, Donna! We had a Junior Suite when we stayed but did not have a nice view. We had a view of the street behind the resort. We actually did not mind that part since we did not spend a whole lot of time inside. Thanks

    We were on the first floor, so because of the trees we didn't have a beach view because of the trees and the berm. The balcony was a decent size. The room was very large.

    You should be fine, shouldn’t be any problems unless you were going to spend a lot of time in the forest/the mountain areas. malaria tablets maybe a good one to take.
