Just returned this past Saturday (Jan 17). Unfortunately, the weather during week two was not the best. Sunday, nice and sunny; Monday, partly cloudy, Tuesday, raining, when the rain stopped cool and windy, Wed-Thurs, cloudy, cool very windy (moving the furniture around on the terrace overnight), Friday, partly cloudy, cool windy, Saturday, sunny and windy in the morning, cloudy and windy in the afternoon (at least we got some sun before leaving for the airport for our 5:35 flight!)

Beach, at high tide (with the wind) in front of Bldg A (our building) about 20 ft wide, a little more at low tide. In front of Phase II, about 40 ft of beach. Most of the chairs, etc are set up at the Phase II side of the resort, since that is where the most beach is.
