          Could you possibly point me to the company from which you buy your pretty guest sarongs/beach towels? I would like to have some just like the ones at your resort. They are much more energy efficient to wash and dry. Plus, they would be a great reminder of our awesome family vacation there a couple of years ago. If it would be easier, maybe I could purchase new sarongs from La Paloma. Looking forward to your response.
