    We wanna make our first trip for a week around the 20th of September.

    Only rooms available are garden view and passion suite? Is it worth the money? Help us out.

    Also what is the tipping policy and is it customary?
    What else do we need to know?
    We are both excited

    Hey there. I can't really answer whether those room types are worth the money as I don't know what rate you are being quoted, but I will say that the idea is to spend as less amount of time in your room as possible. I believe all the beds are the same size. This October will be our 3rd time going and we did secure a room with an ocean view...but that is because I tend to wake up earlier than my wife and like to sit on the beach and she hates having to come find me...lol

    We love ground floor garden rooms 1301 or 1302.

    Nice and close to pool and much better than rooms above - no ankle breaker step by the bed.

    FYI - Rms 1301 or 1302 are considered "Superior" Garden view at a premium price over the Deluxe(regular) Gardeb View rooms - rating changed about a year ago....

    You can but all the Passion Suites are the same - all Ocean View - the only real difference is main floor or second floor locations

    Nope all the same - no better or worse location - as mentioned earlier, the only real difference is ground floor or second floor locations
