          Hi. My wife and I are staying for 6 nights at the start of July. Just wondered if anyone had any must do trips? Open to doing anything. Also wondered how much money we would need to take? For tips, etc. We are the normal all inclusive as far as I know. Any information would be much appreciated.

          Hi, my family and I are considering staying here in February next year. Just a couple of questions, is there a problem with stray animals at the hotel? My daughter is scared of stray dogs. Also, is mineral water included on all inclusive? I have read there are water dispensers but wondered if this was tap water?

          There are stray cats and dogs throughout but they only come over if you encourage with food. Water is dispensers but it's filtered. We drank it our whole holiday and didn't get sick.
