The pool is cleaned and chemically balanced every week for your safety and comfort; however, on rare occasions it may be necessary to apply extra chemicals to the pool to maintain safe and correct chemical levels. Should this occur during your stay it will be necessary for you to be out of the pool for a period of 12-24 hours for safety reasons. Although the pool is regularly inspected, cleaned and maintained, it may be affected by dust, dirt or insects -particularly during and after heavy rain and bad weather.

58. Pool/Spa heating will be pre-set to the correct temperature on arrival to approx. 84-87 Fahrenheit for the pool and approx. 95-98 Fahrenheit for the Spa.
