We can see how passionate the owner is by the perfect execution, great staff, and awesome food. Staff is very well trained, professional and friendly. Food is gourmet and fresh. We could not believe how spacious the rooms and bathrooms are.

I guess No, all resorts in the area allows only their guests to use the pool, may be you could just have a chat with the management there, if lucky you might be allowed
