                  Unless you are thinking of upgrading to the Master Suite - I'd stick with the preferred club Ocean View room. The Honeymoon suite isn't any (or much) bigger than the preferred club Ocean View room - the biggest difference is that it's ocean front. But the room size is the same. I don't know what the cost difference is, but it's likely not worth it - unless being Ocean Front is really important to you. Both rooms have a jacuzzi outside on the deck.

                  The Master Suite is in a totally different class, and it's super nice. And it seems twice the size of the other two room types mentioned.

                  Hope this helps.

                      For the Premium Deluxe Garden View Room, including taxes and transfers:
                      3 nights double/triple occupancy is $615 per person; each additional night will be $190 per person. Children ages 3-12 are $250 for 3 nights; $75 each additional night.

                      That includes $100 in resort coupons per person for individual spending; a private check-in area with a welcome cocktail

                      *6th room booked is complimentary based on the double occupancy rate.
                      10 rooms booked 1 free room upgrade* (I still have questions about this to ask my TA) My TA said that if most people book 4 nights with the garden view room, we would get that rate taken off of what room we book, and then when 10 room are booked for let's say 4 nights we would get a free room upgrade for those 4 nights. I'm a little confused about this so when I have time I'm going to call my TA with all my questions.

                      My TA said that she will help with airfaire too, but she not going to do a group "package" rate with air/resort, because we have people coming from all over the usa: boston, chicago, phoenix, new york, wisconsin...but she said she will find them the cheapest airfare at the time they put there deposit down for the room and if they don't want to go with her airfare at that time they can check back later or search themselves.
                      We received a free room because of the 6th room free promotion and this is how our TA did it.... We had guests coming for several lengths of time, some 7 nights, 5 nights, 4 nights, ect. In the end we had 2 - 5 night rooms free and 1 - 4 night. It came to a total of 14 nights. Our TA simply figured out the dollar amount of 14 nights, which was $4452. My fiance and I have booked the ocean front room and it was around $2800 I believe for both of us. They subtracted that from the $4452 and cut us a check for the remainder. I then used that to divide it up among the bridal party, several of them are tight on cash and I am thrilled they are coming, so it was a nice surprise for them when they got about $250 back each.

                      I am not sure how other TAs do this, but giving us the check to then split was so much easier than saying "Take this night off this room, and this off that room" that would have been way to confusing! The best part of doing it this way was we got our entire stay free. I felt bad at first, because I received a free room and my guests were paying, but the money I saved from the room is definitely going to make everyone else's experience better because I can use that money for other excursions for everyone :)
