If it were me, i'd check in the bags the night before...

I stay here a lot and as I mentioned a few posts ago, I have had consistently good stays. The Exec rooms are the ones to go for and if lucky enough to be upgraded to one, the suites are really...

Thank you, very helpful. Trying to decide whether to do this back to back or wimp out and enjoy the sun for a day or two! I agree, it must be a tough rotation for the crew and i don't envy them.
