Good day Tereza K, thank you for your question. I can put your mind at ease. Bottled water is refreshed daily in your rooms for your consumption. And there is also plenty of bottled water available here at the resort as well. We also have a water treatment plant on site where we treat our water which comes into the resort. Chlorination of water used at all the Food preparation areas and also Bar areas falls into line with WHO Health Standards of between 3-5ppm (parts per million) this helps tremendously with standards of water used on the resort. However everyone is different and we can pick up a stomach bug or upset stomach from a number of different causes so it is always good practice to follow sensible hygiene precautions whilst travelling away from home.
Hope this helps!
