          There is drink service on the beach, but it is a fair way to the bar and is good when there is enough staff

          Are there ramps down to the beach? How handicap accessible are the grounds?

          Response from Graham J | Reviewed this property |
          There are no ramps to the beach, There are about 4 sets of stairs from the main pool area consisting of 4- 8 steps each that get you to the beach.
