    As a lone traveller would The time share /sellers approach me? Do we have to ask for mosquito nets or are they supplied? Is there a problem with them at night ? I see those awful barriers on the beach sadly not before I booked my trip. Really disapointed in that . hoped for a lovely view as I wasnt planning on leaving the complex. Are you alble to move down the beach and use other sunbeds or do you have to stay in the ocean blue area.? Is there a beach person that will help with applying lotion to back or will i need to bring a long handled radiator roller :) Sorry lots of questions but my first lone holiday :( thank you.

    We are planning to go to this hotel with our 9 month old baby. I would like to know if the buildings have elevators and if it is easy to go with a stroller throughout the hotel.

    Aside from the accommodations, every other building on the property has ramps for easy access with a stroller, wheelchair, etc. Everything is connected by stone/brick paths.
