It's the perfect way to go shopping!
Finally, and this is important if you have elderly or very young people in your party, how easy is it to get out? Are the ladders, 'Roman Steps' or will you just have to heave yourself out unaided - not good unless it is a 'skimmer' pool where the water level is equal to the edge of the pool. Remember also to check that the pool is secure and that little children won't be able to access it without an adult to open poolside entrance doors or gates. By booking directly with the owner, you can reassure yourself that the pool facilities are exactly what you need before confirming your reservation.
