We stayed 2 nights on the 9th floor in a suite, as the regular rooms were sold out when I booked, but we did not regret it. The apartment was huge, bed was comfortable, view was spectacular, balcony was big. Location was good, but you have to walk a few minutes to reach the beach

Does the pool have any food or drink service?
How far is the beach from the hotel?

What are the beds like? I have a bad back and need a supportive non sagging mattress.
I like firm mattresses for the same reason you do, as well since I am disabled. The beds here were just fine.

We would like to have one piece of luggage delivered to the hotel a day before we arrive. Is there any problem with that? Thanks.
