          I have booked this hotel with my wife for early January, we are looking forward to enjoying the Hotel, beach and some dives. I just have a few questions. Does the dive shop has all size fins ? I am size 13 or 14 us.( I recently had an issue) What kind of dives did you do ? Should I bring a rash guard shirt to protect from the sun, water shoes , etc. Are beach lounges available by the ocean ? and do I need electrical transformer to use my laptop and charge my phone ? We are coming from New Jersey and trying to limit my luggage load. Thank you for your reviews Alfred
