  • does each bungalo have its own soaker pool on the roof? it looks that way in the pictures and want to be sure.

    None of the bungalow rooms have private pools. That would be only for the Casita Jungleview with pool or our Casita Oceanview with pool. However, there are 2 common pools on property.
