Are pool/beach towels provided?
Hello: Yes, the hotel provide pool and beach towels free of charge all we ask is that you return them to the property. The towels are not as big as the regular Beach towels, though. Beach towels 60 inches x 30 inches on average, which is noticeably bigger than your average bath towel, for example. Thank you and we look forward to seeing you soon.

There is a Publix a few blocks away and a 7-11 directly across the street. There is guest parking and we never had to fight for a spot.
