Thanks for the replies. I'm pretty sold on this place, and I think we can make 7 nights work. The included activities make it a major value for us, and the menus at the restaurants suggest we could have enough variety to keep us satisfied. That, and the price of flights work out the best to make staying an extra two days worth it. My plan is to book the standard room, and hope to get an upgrade to a suite.

How far in advance of our stay would they offer any comped upgrade?
Affording the cash upgrade might be tricky, how long would we have to accept it once it is offered?

Thank you, Kacee and CCIE!

Let me just clarify, though, that I spent a LOT of time out by the plunge pool reading in the hammock, so I had perhaps more exposure than others may typically experience.

When trying to book a points redemption, three in a room is 35k points per night. Four in room, however, does not offer any points redemptions, only cash at $500+ for the either the two or three room villas. Yet, the most basic standard room offered is with two double beds, which fits our needs.

Any thoughts on how to book a points redemption for four in a room?

You can email [email protected] to inquire. If there are two kids in your group, I see no problem of booking a double room for four of you.

Were the pools heated? Main pool and plunge pool? Planning on going in November.
