Hi, I’m looking at booking a room at your hotel and had a few questions (check in 4/28 check out 05/02) • Do you have any rooms that come with a hammock? • Are there any ocean, jungle, or beach views from the rooms? • Is wifi included? Is there a computer available for use? • Are there bars, restaurants, and nightlife in walking distance? • Do the rooms have a balcony, terrace, patio, or private outdoor space? • What are the closest beaches and are any of them in walking distance? If not can they be accessed by a bike (and if so what is the daily cost of one - 2 people). Would a vehicle be recommended/needed to get to the beach? • Do the rooms have air conditioning? • Are there any shared amenities or are they are private? (ie private bathroom/shower, private outdoor space,…) • Is breakfast and/or lunch included?
