I was just going to book Garden view Premium Deluxe Plunge Room; but my future husband really wants to upgrade to a Preferred Club Ocean View King Room; for more privacy since the ground floor plunge rooms don't seem to have much, plus he wants the upgraded amenities.
I'm trying to understand the difference between the honeymoon room and the PC ocean view?
Is preferred club worth the extra cost, or does the resort try to upgrade their wedding couples from premium to preferred club on arrival?
I also read in the documents provided from DRC that a discount will be taken from the Bride and Groom's stay if enough guests book. I'm waiting for clarification from my TA on this but anyone with experience with this discount have any insights?
Sorry for the super long posting; but just trying to get everything organized. My "type A" ICU nurse personality is in high gear.
Thanks in advance
You have a higher chance of getting upgraded the higher the room you book.... even if you aren't the bride and groom! We booked a preferred club ocean view and they upgraded us to the honeymoon suite. My parents booked the honeymoon suite (just because they thought they would need more room for family and everyone coming in and out) and they got upgraded to the master suite. We ended up switching rooms so we were in the master suite and they stayed in the honeymoon suite. I would definitely recommend atleast booking a preferred club ocean view. And if its in your budget, I would recommend the honeymoon suite or master suite. We loved the master suite and were really glad we had that to get ready in and have the extra space since we were there for 10 days. The plunge pool rooms are not private at all. And I very rarely saw anyone using the plunge pools the entire time I was there.
Also, the upgrades will be based on how full the hotel is. There were about 5 or 6 other brides there during our stay in December. One wedding party had 75 people so it was harder to upgrade the lower level rooms. So, like I said, the higher you book, the more likely you are to get upgraded
