    Hello! My mom, sister, and I are doing a girls trip to Playa Del Carmen and were looking into your resort. I just wanted to ask and see details about your rooms that say that they fit 4 people total. Are the queen beds actual queen size beds or are they full size? Or is there a pull-out couch in the rooms? Just wanting to make sure that we can all fit comfortably in one room and half comfortable sleeping arrangements.

    Hi all! Just hoping for clarification about the half-board plan: the resort website says it's included with the room reservation, and our booking confirmation mentions it (specifically that it doesn't include drinks), which leads me to assume we have the plan. However, further down our confirmation it says that "breakfast is $16 per person per night," and to me that contradicts the idea of a meal plan. What have people's experiences been with this (i.e., was half-board included in your reservation, or did you have to purchase it)? Thank you!
