          Hello. Can the standard double room oceanfront accomodate an extra bed? I will be travelling with my two children. My daughter and I can share the double bed but my son would need an extra bed brought in.

          There are no life guards. The pools seem to be well taken care of. It seemed to me that by sundown, the pools were closed and in the later evening, signs were up discouraging use due to treatments.
