You can prepare your own meals or eat out at the many and reasonably priced restaurants within 5 minutes walk of the Suites.
While you are out, we will come in to clean the bathrooms, take out the garbage and do a quick sweep to clear out dust and beach-sand. We change the sheets and towels every 4 or 5 days (depending on the length of your stay) or sooner if requested.
