          I have a few questions, so if someone from the hotel can get in touch with me I would really appreciate it. Just wanting to confirm that there are four bedroom apartments available and whether the BBQ and Pool, are attached to our apartment or shared as part of the complex.

          Hi John, We don't have 4 Bedrooms Apts in our Property. Please note that the Pool and BBQ area are part of the Resort facilities but not attached to the rooms, is a public area for all the guests in house. Regards
