    Maria,

    We booked our room yesterday, but my travel agent(and good friend) talked me into the JR. Suite room with the Jacuzzi instead of the 1 bedroom Honeymoon room. The Junior room was about $70 more per person, but was bigger then the 1 bedroom, it was a suite with LR, sitting area and king bed, but not a seperate bedroom. Like 952 sq ft compared to 648 in the 1 bedroom. It also had jacuzzi and the club preference. It was top floor towers. She said the 1 bedroom's were all 1st floor. I'm hoping of course for an upgrade, but wondered how your room was?

    Also did you wait until most of your guests had booked before you started to negotiate for more guests? Also did you negotiate with Claudia directly?

    I'm so excited we have about 14 people already booked and the invites just hit last weekend! I also found my bridesmaid dresses today at JCPenney's and they are perfect color and on sale for $49.99. I'm only having 3 girls stand up for me.

    Thanks for the info! I keep going thru your photos. They are soooo helpful!

      Hi there,
      I had the 1 bedroom honeymoon suite in the pyramid building. I think we were on the 3rd or 4th floor and we liked it a lot. I contemplated getting the jacuzzi room, but all our guests were staying in the pyramid building so I didn't want to be on the other side of the resort in the tower. I am sure you won't be disappointed whichever way you go. I think there are some pictures of my room in the link I posted.

      I negotiated the entire time and didn't really wait until everyone was booked. Although, once they were all booked, I used that to calculate how much revenue our group would be bringin gto the resort that week and used that figure to get an extra hour at the reception at no charge. Just push for whatever you want. My wedding coordinator was Cecilia and I did all my negotiating through her.

      That's great that you found your dresses. It's all so exciting! Good luck with everything:)
