    Hmmm, maybe I need to check with my TA again. She said the room rates were confirmed, but the pricing on the wedding package may still have some variability. Sounds like other people have the info, so I just need to ask again. Thanks everyone.

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.
            Thanks alot for your info!!!

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 :)
              Thanks for clarifying, I asked my TA about this and she says it works exactly the same way with our promotion....well I know I'm going with the honeymoon suite now, we are having over 15 rooms booked so we would get our room for free and plus have extra to divie up amongst our guests.....

              You have to be super excited....22 days left....it's going to be perfect!!!!

                  Thanks you so much for sharing details on how this promo works. What a great idea to organize excursions for your guests!!

                      I forgot to mention that we ended up using Marina Cancun for our sunset catamaran cruise the night before the wedding. It was a blast!! I'm so glad we decided to do that instead of a rehearsal dinner. It was a real treat for our guests. If you have the budget, I would recommend it. We also went through them to charter the transportation and they provided a really nice comfy bus. It was almost like a party bus because we all had drinks in hand from the lobby bar. Just a really fun night!
