    The hotel has easy access to the nearby islands that have snorkeling - but have a look at Gayana eco Resort on Gayana island - would be great for a honeymoon - we were there in january
    Hi. I am staying at your hotel in late March. Do you provide beach towels in the rooms or by pool?

    Yes there certainly is! Towels in the hotel are available as well as a towel kiosk near the the pool area. Very convenient and wonderful friendly staff that always attend to your needs with a smile. Enjoy your stay.
