    Chairs at pool are free. Lots of spots with umbrellas and mini cabana type. I always had a spot anytime. Not sure about the beach. If you rent condo from vrbo the owners usually have chairs coolers boogie boards.

    I did not have noise in tower one from grills or ac units. We did hear music every night and it turned out to be a free nightly luau at the neighboring hotel. This is best place in in my opinion hands down
