Requested, and received, a room with a private pool that couldn't be seen into. Many of them don't.

Which room should I request if I want the private room? How did you request it and whom did you contact? Thanks!

My understanding is that the restaurant lost hashgocha, even though it's still housed in chabad. Can anyone confirm?

Ember is referenced in the above posts. They are located (rent?) in the Cabo Jewish center (Chabad) but are under a new Hashgacha.

To clear up the confusion.

There is the Cabo Jewish Center where the Chabad is located. The Ember rents a space in The Cabo Jewish center.

They had a Masgiach from KMD, a few months back they decided that they donít need him anymore.

Besides the hechsher, The Ember if you were ever there had really bad food.
