    Beach at Casa del Mar June 9

    handicap questions-casa_del_mar_beachg.jpg

    From what I have read here, Costa Linda will probably be the best bet.

    We love the Amsterdam Manor for its smaller size and choice of ground floor rooms. They have a handicap palapa suitable for a wheelchair, handicap questions-beach_handicap_wheelchair_palapa.jpgbut it is set back from the water and the resort does not have a zero entry pool.

    If she can walk, my father uses a walker to get around at the Amsterdam Manor. Again, due to the small size of the resort with a ground floor room it is very easy for him. Good exercise actually. My dad has trouble with steps so finds it difficult to reach the pool bar, so he just does not go. I deliver. I am sure if I asked, the bartender would also deliver. Even the studios have their own fridges though so you could easily supply your own beverages.

    At their restaurant Mango there are four small steps down into the main portion of the restaurant. Even my dad is able to handle them and the staff stores his walker to keep it out of the way. Mango's also offers the option of dining "upstairs" at the same level as the ground floor rooms. Dinner at Mango's is ala carte. At the breakfast buffet, all the goodies are downstairs with the exception of the hot items and omelet station. Again, I deliver the food.

    These are the steps leading into the pool. There is a nice railing as you can see. handicap questions-swimming_pool.jpg

    Some of the nice walkers have seats attached to them which is nice for resting. Great for traveling.

    At CL they have a drink girl that takes your order by the pool if you don't want to go to the bar. Full kitchens in all the suites.

    The Hilton has wheelchair papala's just off the walkway at the beach, also have zero entry pools. If you decide to stay at the Hilton, I would say, stay in the middle building, first floor for easy in and out. Short walk out the back door and your at the towel hut, the pool and cabana's, that's where I always stay. Staying in the tower, you have the long walk up the hill. Somewhere I have a copy of the papala lay out of the Hilton, if I find it, I'll post it.
