          I am bringing dollars, however I may want to take out more whilst on holiday if I need to. I am from the UK, will the bank in the hotel be able to withdraw more dollars from my Visa debit card? Or would I be better off taking English pounds to exchange?

          I paid for everything in US cash at the resort. Any money I got back was also in US cash. You will get charged a fee from your bank if you use your charge card/credit card in another country. Enjoy your time there !
          I have seen a lot of reviews regarding how awesome staff and animation team is - can someone elaborate on cleanness of rooms , food , pools. I have read that the beach isn't the great but you can walk in either direction. Thanks
