Our room was tiny with very little space outside. One of 2 chairs at the table was under the air conditioner and
thus not usable. Water in sink warm- not adequate for spouse to shave. Shower was very low output- which makes you use more water to get clean. Need more shady spots to sit in during the day-no beach chairs to rent, no umbrellas to rent, no bikes to rent.
