g hi, we're planning to go at caylabne this sunday, and would just like to ask if the beach is safe for swimming despite the jellyfish?

Marcel Yeah. It's still safe to swim, the jellyfish do not sting. Besides, the number of jellyfish was decreasing when we were going. There might be no more jellys left by Sunday.

g thanks! that's good to hear :)
i'd just like to ask too about the cleanliness of the place in general (that is, if the pool is not moldy, beach is free of garbage, the sea floor is pretty much easy to walk on without a lot of debris, restrooms/showerooms..etc).
sorry about asking a lot, it's just that i've been looking for recent reviews of the place for most of the reviews i found are few and outdated, and the comments are mostly negative.
we're not new to the place, but it's been a while since we went there (we frequented the place years ago, when the sand is still white). Back then, the place is ok, and the beach has its share of trash on some sides before but it's pretty much clean.
we plan to go there this sunday to celebrate my mom's bday, and hopefully not to disappoint her and the others.
thanks a lot :)

Marcel If it is just for the day, you'll have no problems at all. The place is clean, the beach is nice-ish, the adult pool is clear! The kiddie pool could use some cleaning though.
If you're going to stay overnight, make sure the bed is clean. If you feel a little itch, have the linens changed!
Otherwise, everything is ok. The sand is still white, no trash in sight.

Marcel Oh, about the shower rooms, I didn't really use the shower rooms, but I was able to take a peek at the adult pool shower room, could use some cleaning.

Kat Hi! I just wanted to know if they have dress codes when swimming? :D Forgive me for asking but my family and I aren't the swimsuit-wearing type of people. haha... We'll be going there this weekend. :) Really nice pictures btw. :)

Marcel Hi Kat. Yes they do. You're not suppose to wear cloth shirts while on the swimming pool. But they're not very consistent in enforcing this dress code. Sometimes they let people swim with their shirts on, but it is written in the pool guidelines posted in near the pool.

g Thanks a lot for the info, it's good to know that the sand is still white and the adult pool is clear, and no trash in sight :)

Joan the facilities aren't to rave for. Dilapidated and outdated. Ready to be renovated

Marilyn Hi! Just curious, are they strict about the number of persons per room? Plan to go there mid May with some friends. We are 5 adults in a family (including 2 kids above 12 yrs.) plus one 5 yr. old kid. What room do you advice we get if we opt to stay overnight. Thanks!

Kat Thanks Marcel! :)

Marcel Hi Marilyn. No, I don't think they are strict. But the unit we rented had 3 rooms with 2 beds each. There were 11 of us, 7 adults and 4 kids. 1 adult slept in the sala.
I'm not sure what room you should get. Maybe 2 bedroom would be good, just set up an airbed in the sala.
