We were close to the pool. There were 3 of us and we had towels, etc. for only 2. The bathroom was very small and difficult to use. Bedroom area was nice. Close to the beach and stores.

So we rented an apartment for the night. The forum literally provided everything and more for us in the apartment. The staff there was amazing and worked so easily with us. We ended up staying an extra half a day, and they charged us less than we expected. Overall the apartment was the perfect size for all of us. Will definitely recommend anyone to the forum! Plan on using this hotel again next time we come.
