    WIFI is very good in the lobby and in the international restaurant..also comparatively good on the beach in some places. If you wish to purchase wifi for your room, it is $40.00 per week...

    Going here the last week of April!!! Can you smoke anywhere on the resort? Or is there designated smoking areas? Can you smoke on your Balcony??

    There are designated areas for smokers. Didn't seem like a huge family resort, so I think as long as you're not offending anyone you should be fine smoking on beach and balcony.
