    FleetMac bride,

    I had issues with the "upgrade" situation promised in the free package also.  What Chandlyn said is that it upgrades you to a higher up room on the floor and the amentities in the room (the slippers and robes), but not an "upgraded" level.  There is an upgraded level that allows you access to the Internet Room, free safe, and liquor in the internet room.  This comes with the "Club" level. 

     

    There is a newer side to Gran Bahia that was built only a couple years ago...I had to request that we were on that side.  That's probably the different building your agent is referring to.

Also thanks for posting another pic. I just talked to Marcia yesterday and told her I have some cute shoes for her shoe fetish LOL.

     

    Thanks

      Is that like the Club Golden? I was upgraded to that along with my entire wedding party with my agent.

      We were also all upgraded for free to the Club Golden from our travel agent as a gift to everyone that has booked.

        Your gown is similar to mine you don't look like your dying of heat in it, was the heat tolerable in your dress. I have been worried about roasting my butt off in mine.

        That's what we had - all the internet access in the club room along with the robe and slippers, etc. and we were in the "new" tower on the 7th floor, plus yes - our safe was free.  I didn't do like Vicky and get the internet access only because we had the free 30 mins per day from the club room. it let us check in with elderly parents, etc. and watch email, which we only did every second day or so. we paid for this with our Transat package. we also bypassed the front desk when we arrived and got taken straight to our room.

        I found it was so windy on our wedding day that it kept me cool. it was only when we got away from the beach/gazebo area that I started to get hot even with strapless. the park we went to got really warm and that was at 4PM. that's when I was desperate for something cool to drink. but if you stay down near the beach you should be fine, and the restaurants are cool inside.

              So, I'm in need of a new photographer for my TTD session.  We had hoped to use Merrick, but I left him hanging for too long and he booked another wedding.  Anyone have any suggestions or recommendations on a good photographer?

               

              Thanks!

                Try Stacey Clarke she does amazing work and can be contacted through her website or her facebook page. She is very quick to reply and has reasonable prices.
