    Mobile data and call allowances are a lot. And I don't mean a lot more than you're used to, I mean A LOT. You'll need to get on the hotel WiFi, strongest by reception and the bars and get in WiFi calling.

    Hi Carol, You can make a reservation, an "all inclusive" and upgrade at the hotel to a villa. I have seen a promo on a sign in the lobby, that you can upgrade a villa at the costs of $200 per day.
