Are all of the overwater bungalows the same or are there various options?

Carlie: The Sandals over-water- bungalows layout of the rooms are the same. Except one location at the Sandals, Royal Caribbean has a private pool and the size of the bungalows are larger than the other bungalows. What makes all the bungalows different is the destination and each resort has something slightly different to offer.
