    To anyone who has been to the EDR!!
    This may be coming out of left field but I was wondering:
    What are the room keys like? are they a card or an actual key? and What type of safes are they? electronic or accessible by key only?

    I told my mother all about OTT bags (yesterday) and she has now taken control of the project(!) She thought it would be a good idea to get the coil wrist bands for them for the guests to attach their keys to. She actually called me from the middle of some store to tell me all about a good deal on them she found....the only thing that stopped her from buying the whole lot was my suggestion that maybe the room keys were actually cards - and therefore her idea wouldn't fly....I had to promise to find out asap!!
    Gotta love my mom!!

      You know what? I can't remember!! I know for sure the safes are keys, not electronic (might be different in Casitas, not sure)... but as for the actual key to the room, I can't remember for the life of me! I'm thinking that if I'm having such a hard time remembering, it must be keycards - since that's what I'm used to, otherwise I'd be something I'd notice.

          Thanks ladies!
          I think it is probably pretty safe to say that they are electronic cards....I'll have to tell mom it won't work...I'm quite sure she will be disappointed(!)

            It'd work for the safe keys. It's an outrageous amount of money if you lose the safe key ($250 comes to mind, maybe more). I feel bad for your mom! lol - she's so excited!!!

                I could ask our WC, as I guess you could too. Let me know if you want me too, or what you find out. Pretty good idea on your mom's part...

                What if you bought the clear luggage tag things from Office max and attached those to the stretchy bracelet thing? I personally have the issue whether it's electronic or a regular key! either way I still don't have a pocket on my swimsuit!

                  Both keys - room and safe - are electronic at El Dorado Royale.

                    The room keys are cards for sure, but the safe keys are a pain as they are not. We stayed on the casitas but we had guests stay in regular rooms and I am pretty sure they are the same.
