          Hi Richard. I just reserved a room for 2 adults and two children. The deluxe room is it smaller than bungalow ? Is food / snacks available at all hours. Can you confirm breakfast is free and what the menu is like. Can my children watch movies at night. E.g. Does the tv have cable and USB ? We are looking for comfort. We also know Melissa from El Be so hoping you can give us nice room. Besides pool what other amenities offered ?

          When I stayed breakfast was included. They had eggs, toast, cold cereal, fruit, and yogurt. Might have had more I just can't remember what else was offered.

          There are four of us coming for February 22-26. This includes my husband and me, our adult daughter, and our adult niece. We would like two rooms or a suite with 2 bedrooms and two baths. What can you offer?

          email the hotel directly. You are asking tripadvisor community using this method. I can tell you that you will be needing two rooms.
