          Hi, We are booked to stay with you from March 16th. We will be arriving exhausted after a long continental flight from Australia. Our flight arrives at 10:30pm, so by the time we get to you it will be around 12:30 am. 1. Will we be able to get something to eat at that hour? 2. What are the pool timings and maximum depth? Thanks
