I have heard that the Oceanfront room is the best to get if you're really interested in having a nice oceanview.  Apparently there aren't many 'Oceanview' rooms that have a nice view of the ocean.  My TA said that it is unlikely to receive an upgrade from an Oceanview to an Oceanfront since there aren't that many of them, so we booked the Oceanfront :)

personally, I like the oceanview room, although you can't see the ocean sometimes unless you walk to the door and look a certain direction - it's not like cancun where EVERYTHING faces the ocean. I prefer to be by the pool, on the first floor, so it's easy come, easy go through the sliding glass door.

 

the only other comment I've heard is the swim-up rooms being smaller than the others and generally not worth the money.

 

oh, and if dining at chef's place is important to you, I think you have to book higher than oceanview. used to be oceanview was included, but now, I think it's only the higher room categories. chef's plate is AMAZING, but it would be something you could only enjoy yourselves, as they only do two seatings every 15 - 30 mins (e.g. no groups). if you've already planned something like dinner on the beach, it may not be worth the additional $$.

 

one more thing - book oceanview or higher and you get to select your room online 48 hours prior to check-in. : ) they also let you upgrade within the tool, so if you don't find an oceanview room you want, you can switch to a higher room category on the spot - in 2009 the upgrade cost in the tool was lower than if we had originally booked an oceanview!

When I was there, I just had an oceanview room. All of the Junior Suites are the same size, the difference being just the view... however, we were rarely in our rooms, except to sleep and shower, we didn't feel the need to spend money on the higher up rooms. The wedding packages say you will get an upgrade if available, but if the resort is full and/or there aren't any rooms available in the suite class above the one you have, then you won't get one.. I was happy with the room we had. We used the 48 hour check-in to pick our room, however when we logged on, there was only one 3rd floor oceanview room to choose (our priority was 3rd floor), so you don't get much choice if the resort is booked full! Also, if you want a quieter room, I would choose one that isn't by the pool, cause people are loud during the day by the main pool, but it didn't bother us cause we weren't in our rooms during the day.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
