ข้อเสีย: Too difficult to find a sunbed with shade. Many at the front have no parasols because of wind. It is ridiculous that all sunbeds are claimed with towels early in the morning by guests and then often they are only used for a couple of hours a day. It says that towels will be removed if not used but this doesn' t happen.
