Thanks once again,
Not going to lie, we were a bit taken aback by the dated-ness of this hotel when we first arrived. The elevator was a bit sketchy, the hallways had an unpleasant smell, and the water temp and pressure wasn't great. But we did not want...More

I stayed at this hotel from July 17-23, 2017. The Lala's Restaurant is a food truck parked by the beach. The food was terrible! There were dogs near the restaurant and there was a terrible smell! The other restaurants were okay...not so great! The food...More

Hello. I am sorry but I know nothing about the butler service. Personally, I really don't see why you would need one. The resort is small and compact... everything is close by. While sunbathing on the beach, there are always runners filling drink orders for those who don't want to walk the short distance to the pool bar. As far as the third pool, that pool is there for those who have a time share or rent an apartment. During our first stay at this resort, we were given an apartment and we were told that we could use that pool. There are hardly any people there and often times, we were the only ones. As far as reserving lounge chairs, I suppose that you do need to rise early to get one by the two pools. However, there are plenty of lounge chairs on the beach. Of course, if you wanted a particular section, then you may have to get up early to throw your towels on them. We are going back for our third time. I hope you enjoy your stay.
