          Can anyone answer if the water is replaced in your room daily or do you have to buy it? Also is there a view of the sea from any of the pools, I am disappointed to find out you can't just wander from the property to the beach without going down lots of steps? Any tips of what might be useful to pack that I might need and can't get at the hotel?

          Beds are free, and a friendly Cuban will bring the beds to wherever you choose. And yes, lots of steps down to the beach from the Mares side.
