    Hi ladies,
    I'm just curious to know more about the casita's at EDR. FI and are planning for 8 nights in either a regular casita or individual casita. Can someone share their insight on them. Im wondering if there is a particular "section/block" of casita rooms that have turned out better than others? Do to location, atmosphere, privacy, service, etc...

    EDR Brides, please share your expeirences and/or knowledge of them. Thanks!

      Hi! We had our honeymoon at EDR, we had one of the swim up casitas, we LOVED it!

      The casitas are beautiful and it's nice to have a pool just for your section of casitas, so it's not so crowded. I think we were in section 30, but I might be wrong. The sections that are further away are newer. They were just starting to open the new ones when we were there, there was ones with private pools and I think the other ones were the presidential casitas, which had a much larger room. Although the room we were in was plenty big enough.

      The outdoor showers in your room are really cool too!

        Section 31 is the block with the private infinity pools, even on the 2nd floor. That's as far as they've built, so they are the newest. We stayed in the 30 block, 2nd floor. Great room and view, awesome shower.

          I think if you get 2600 or higher- those are the "newer" Casitas....

          We were booked for a regular Casita and when we got there got bumped up to a swim-up and loved loved it! We were in 2912...

          2 of my girlfriends stayed in a regular casita in the building beside us on the 2nd floor and it was amazing- a straight view of the ocean and their outdoor shower was actually bigger than ours.

          the rooms at the resort are amazing-most of our guests just had the standard, cheapest room and still was the most beautiful room they'd been in!

            Now that you say that, I definitely think it was section 30 we were in, because we were right near the infinity pool section.

            ahhh, I wish I was there right now, kicked back with a margarita!

              Can I ask, How did you get bumped up? Did you have to pay extra?

                Well, Mandy and DH were booked in the 30 block, the same as us and another couple. When we got to EDR, she asked to be put in a different block away from her parents so they would have some privacy on their honeymoon and not always be running into us. The concierge upgraded her to the infinity casitas. I had actually booked all 3 couples in the 30 block, hoping they would bump her up, so it worked out good for her. The rest of our group stayed in the regular rooms.

                    Our room was an infinity casita in building 31. Amazing. Here's some pics of our room. Like my mom (Melanie) said, we were upgraded.
