Do advance reservations need to be made in early April and how many days ahead?? What kind of clothing should my family wear?

Response from James F | Property representative |
24 hours in advance in April is wise - longer if you arn't flexible with dates. Dress warmly, it will be cool in early April as opposed to cold. Cheers and see you soon!
