          Hello! I'm wondering if there are chairs and/or umbrellas available on the beach? Or if lounging is limited to the pool area. Thank you!

          Response from Shane M |
          Based on my research, Amanda, it appears as though the hotel provides loungers on the beach and the shade is provided by a large bank of trees. Sounds as though there is plenty of shade as well.

          We're non-smokers and are relieved that in Costa Rica there's no smoking allowed in the resorts. However, we're worried that the smokers who aren't permitted to smoke on the resort will go to the beach to smoke. Please let us know if there tend to be a lot of smokers on the beach. Thanks.

          I absolutely abhor the smell of smoke. I can honestly say this is a non issue.
