          I don't think they do but you can email them to check if they do adjoining rooms but lm sure the hotel will put your rooms next to each other on the same floor.

          what's the difference between the deluxe seafacing and executive seafacing rooms? The published size seems similar

          View, view, view...... Executive seafacing rooms are located on high floor, seaview totally will not be blocked by coconut trees. Deluxe seafacing rooms are located on 4th floor and below, some view might be blocked by trees.
