Thank you! Price is really not bad for up to 8 sittings.

I think it is very good for playing cards + beer company. But it has no lounge chairs for just relaxing...

I had to ask the same question years ago when i was booking our first cabana. It's hard to understand why they haven't figured this out yet.

So why take a cabana over a bungalow? The bungalows look pretty nice?

Yes, my husband was trying to book it, and it asked how many people would be in the bungalow. He put 3. And when he went to hit checkout, it said $750.00. He hit cancel quickly.

We booked a beach cabana last time we were there and they are pretty private. Based on the pics it seems the bungalow is less private, but it's hard to tell.

You choose one person when booking and that will be good for up to 8 ppl. Definitely don't choose more than one unless you want more bungalows.

Yes, it doesn't appear to have any "outside space," and you can't tell from the pics whether it would be possible to pull a couple of lounge chairs up in front of the bungalow.

I would think they would have room in front of them, I cannot imagine they would be stacked one upon the other.

Probably have a nice view.

Safe travels.

Coco Cay has the bungalows also and from another members pictures it looks like it has 4 loungers stacked on one another per bungalow. Hoping that is the case or I guess I will lug a lounger over to the one we are renting if its allowed.

The picture on line below shows 2 loungers in front of the Beach bungalows and there is a small difference in price and comfortable seating between Labadee and Coco Cay. Since they just became available July 31, we should start to see some kind of reviews shortly.

Labadee--$250---With comfortable seating for up to eight
Coco Cay-$225---With comfortable seating for up to six

It is per bungalow, not per person...the RCL IT department will change the web page...so, in about 6 months it should be right!

My information is from the Diamond+ C&A desk.

Yipeeeee. Just pulled the trigger and booked a "Bungalow" for Columbus Cove, in Labadee. We really wanted a cabana, but was NOT going to pay $495 for it...soooooo $250 for the Bungalow is reasonable to us!!!

Can't wait to start hearing reviews about them.

Me too!!! I will definitely post all about it and take tons of pics in the whole area. I don't know how to post pictures, but I have 7 weeks to figure it out. When is your cruise?

We rented one just last week. I booked under my name only @$250 and there was space for 8 people. There were 6 of us that shared it. It was very comfortable for that many to sit there. and 2 more would not have been hard.

We could tell they were new. The cooler had 6 large bottles of Evian water. We got 2 floater mats. It was shaded sitting there. They had 2 towels there. I'm guessing you could have gotten more towels and maybe water but we had brought our own from the ship.

I think there were only 8 available to rent. There were two rows of beach chairs lined up in front of them for all of those who rented them to share. There were always lots of beach chairs available.

The only downside was the swim area was right next to a small boat dock. The boats that docked here, how shall I say it, needed a little maintenance. They spit out lots of black smoke when they were running. It left the ocean water in the area a little greasy/oily from the motors.

Oh, be sure to take the ferry or the tram over there so you don't have to walk so far!
