I purchased this cabana to use for shade while on vacation at the beach. It wasn't hard to put up, even in a breeze (two adults) The instructions are lacking but if you ever put up a tent before, it is pretty easy. The only reason I didn't give this 5 stars is because it really isn't deep enough to provide shade for a man with long legs. We were able to sit two sand chairs and our beach bag inside and still had adequate room lenghtwise. The sand bags held it down even on a breezy day. This is great for someone who needed shelter for a child or a place for kids to take a nap. One person could easily turn their chair longways and be in the shade, but two side by side, it just wasn't deep enough to give shade to the lower leg area. I loved the side and rear vents that allowed air to pass thru and that it has a floor. I would recommend this to a friend.
The tent was very durable and sturdy. It was able to hold up to the winds on the beach without blowing away or collasping. It was very easy and quick to set up and tear down and folds up small for easy storage withouit taking up a lot of space. Great for helping to keep little ones out of the sun, and provides an ideal spot for kids to nap without leaving the beach. I plan to use this for camping in addition to the beach trips.

This turned out to be a great purchase. We live on the water and needed something easy to put up and use on the beach. This is easy to put together and return to its carry bag. We recently took it to the beach on an extremely windy day-It did great-far better than trying to use an umbrella.

We bought this for the beach to put my 9 month in. Since the front zipped up and the windows zipped open it allowed a cool breeze while keeping the baby contained and out of the sun. She was able to sleep and play without getting all sandy. It was even big enough for me to lie in there with her. It wasn't difficult to put together and it came with plenty of guy wires and stakes to keep it secured. The sand bags attached to it were also very convenient.

Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? One of the ends of the smaller poles came off, but was easily put back together.
The cabana is a pain to set up the first time. Definitely try it out in a large room or backyard before taking it to the beach so you can label which poles go where. The directions are terrible and inaccurate; they show the poles going into grommets, which the tent doesn't have. With that said, once you put it together and label with a marker, it's pretty simple to set up. Provided great shade on a very sunny day and did not blow over.
I purchased this product for my daughter and son-in-law to use on the beach for their 1-year-old daughter. My son-in-law and I spent almost an HOUR in 96 degree summer heat attempting to put it up on the beach....we followed directions exactly and the support rods ("shorter" ones) would not go in...no matter how carefully we threaded them, smooth the fabric, or used my ex-GI-son-in-law's strength to try to get them into their intended slots...no go...really frustrating, especially since I bought this in summer to give them last Christmas. I would not recommend this product to ANYBODY...a waste of time, money, and vacation time.
