Do they play music at the main pool during the day?
Sometimes, they have aqua fit in the pool and will play music then. The pool area is actually rather quiet compared to many I’ve visited. They also have musicians at lunch playing by the pool restaurant but the sound doesn’t travel Hope that helps

Are there a lot of gluten free options at the resort?
Hello, there are no gluten free food at the resort. You will have to make arrangements with the Chef. We were there in August 2018, another guest (a Dad) had to ask several times for Gluten free food for his daughter, they did accommodate his request. It's a very nice hotel, people are very friendly! enjoy!

"stayed in different quarters of the resort, can't really complain about any area we stayed at."
"If you are lucky to get a room in block 18 ask for a top floor room, as you may see the beach."
"Building 17, level 2 or 3 I believe is the best location with direct view of sea"
"the water pressure can be poor in the shower in the afternoon when everybody comes back from the beach/pool."
"Garden view"
