    You cannot reserve the palapas there. There are no "cabanas" per se, just the palapas on the island and around the pool. We own there and have never had a problem getting a palapa on the island. Full disclosure; we do get there before 10am.

    They added Cabanas this year. We saw them but did not pay for them. Currently only on the adult side, but being added to the family side. VERY nice.

    OK, I will ask
    - what is the difference between a cabana and a palapa?
    - and what would that make what we have on the beach in St Kitts (as in the photo here)?

    When you were told to hit the cabanas for the day....it sounds like you hit the cannabis instead. ;-)

    Didn't know they added the cabanas. Haven't been there since December 2016 and didn't go to the island. Sorry :)
