Are there beach attendants who will bring you food and drinks if you're on the beach?

And if you're at the pool are lounge chairs first come first first serve?

There are beach attendants who will bring you drinks and food at the beach but if it's a weekend and the hotel is busy, don't expect it to be fast. Best bet for beach service is during the week although they always make an effort to do their best. It just takes a little longer at the beach. For the pool, take my advice as I've been there plenty of times...if you want a poolside chair in the sun, fight the hangover, get up early and reserve it (especially on Fri-Sun) because only one side of the pool gets pure sun all day. Poolside service is awesome. They go out of their way to serve you in the best way possible. Just make sure you know whether they are hosting a special weekend event there (e.g. Music Week) as it gets super busy and normal poolside service is disrupted.

Hi!

Regarding the pool and beach area: first come first serve, food attendants are also available at both places.

Beach attendants are available for food and beverage service, and our advice is that: weekends are busy; weekend afternoons are really busy; ordering your lunch at 1130 is a good idea before it gets busy; combining your drinks and lunch orders to the extent possible helps; and tipping helps. We have found they are helpful and friendly, especially if you are pleasant with them.

There are beach attendants who will bring you drinks and food at the beach but if it's a weekend and the hotel is busy, don't expect it to be fast. And tipping doesn't hurt. Best bet for beach service is during the week although they always make an effort to do their best. It just takes a little longer at the beach. For the pool, take my advice as I've been there plenty of times...if you want a poolside chair in the sun, get up early and reserve it (especially on Fri-Sun) because only one side of the pool gets pure sun all day. Reserving a poolside chair on a busy weekend there is like a competitive sport. Poolside service is awesome though once you get it. They go out of their way to serve you in the best way possible. Just make sure you know whether they are hosting a special weekend event there (e.g. Music Week) as it gets super busy and normal poolside service is disrupted.
