I do not want to be Debbie Downer but we had also requested from our travel agent to be put into the new section. I dont think that really matters because once you get there its your bargain with them. Actually once they did try to make up for the JR SUITE in Punta Cana section they placed us at RST in the new section with the nice pool.
They had given us a room I believe it was bldg 50 so rm 5007. That room did not look ANYTHING like the pictures on the trip advisor I have seen. I mean no white linens or that airy light look in the room. My JR Suite bed cover looked nicer because it was cream and that one was just typical hotel bed cover (colorful). Not to go into details the only difference with that room was that it has a flat screen tv. The pictures that sold me were the ones on trip advisor with the luxurious rooms.
I do believe that higher floors have those rooms because even their balconies have nice white curtains flowing....yeah. But I do wonder if that is extra charge.
I was sooooo pissed off with them that I did not want to give up my JR SUITE at Punta Cana (dirty and all) and move to that little plain old room.
