          Vamos a alojarnos en junio durante una semana, y quería saber si es posible contratar media pensión, y una vez allí, cambiar algunos días por pensión completa o todo incluido pagando el suplemento que corresponda. Nos gustaría visitar los pueblos cercanos, y según nos apetezca quedarnos a disfrutar del hotel, o salir a comer fuera. Gracias
