We had 52 guests there and all but us and one couple stayed in the Royale side in Oceanfront JJ,Oceanview JJ and JJ. Our travel agent requested everyone be together, make sure you stress to your agent to put more than one request in. In the end everyone ended up in building 14,15,16 and 6,7,8….that was after Stressed to the front desk person when I found out my brother was being put in 11. That being said, after a few words with the manager(saying listen this has been planned for a year, there should be no reason my guests are apart…52 people 2 private events…etc..) They ended up not being able to move one room from 11 because it was a double bed request. **Definitely go to the front desk and ask for all room assignments.
My Parents ended up in 17 which is supposed to be oceanfront…just really close to the beach, they did say Guacamayas' bass boomed in their room but once you put the air on it drowns it out. No one else mentioned it. The thing about the rooms in the 40/50 is they are just far away from everything and the sun walking can get hot. I'd recommend trying to get your guests int he middle of the resort, and all the rooms we went in seemed to be nice.
We were in a regular casita suite, which was nice and plenty seeing the amount of time we spent in the room. in block 2700 by the bar Pelicanos. That was a nice happy medium of walking not too far to either the Royale side or the Spa to get hair/makeup done
We didn't really have any trouble with carts, and didn't really mind the walking. Make friends witht he drivers and they should just about do anything to make your wedding weekend enjoyable!
*I also posted some non-professional pics in my gallery--some would for the life of them not turn around no matter how many times i fixed!*
Hope that helps!
Any suggestions on buildings to request?
My guests are staying the the Royale and my fiancé and I are staying at the Casitas. We are concerned about getting put in the Casitas on the opposite side of the property far away from our guests. We stayed there during the Brides Dress Rehearsal and it was a very long walk and golf carts rarely came by.
I ideally would like our guests to stay in the buildings closer to the Casitas side, so they are closer to us, but I've heard that those are older and not as nice as the buildings in the 40's & 50's area (close to the Gazebo 55).
Any suggestions or thoughts?
Does the resort really even try to honor our requests?
