How far away from the dock are these cabanas. Also, do the hillside ones have easy access to a beach?I wrote about the cabanas in my review, starting at post 98.
I don't know the distance from the dock to the cabanas, but it's easily within walking distance if you don't have mobility issues (or aren't lazy ). There is a shuttle, which we took (we aren't lazy and prefer to walk, but with 3 kids and our "stuff" it was easier).
Hillside cabanas don't have "easy" access to the beach, but it's not bad. Just a few hundred feet (?) of walking in either direction will take you to Nellie's Beach or Barefoot Beach. I explain this pretty well in my review.
