          Does this hotel have a pool?

          We are located directly on the beach. Our building covers our entire property so we do not have a pool.

          When booking for my birthday and the 10% discount, it says to 'book through the hotel'. Do you mean through your website, as there isn't a 'birthday' code to enter? Or do I just book it through your website, and when checking-in I will be given the discount?

          We can give you your 10% birthday discount on the phone or we can give you a refund for your discount upon arrival if you book your reservation online.
