    Hi I am concerned regarding my booking for July 18th as reading reviews of construction disturbance at your resort. Previous guests have advised construction noise around pool 10-5pm make relaxing by the pool and beach impossible Also breakfast by the pool or beach again not available we have not been advised by your resort of these current changes I have written to you regarding my concerns and received no reply very poor customer relations and at this time I am not impressed and considering canceling our booking. Please advise
